    Model # R3-36|Store SKU # 1000698163

    Overview

    Model # R3-36 Store SKU # 1000698163

    At 20-30% of home energy consumption, water heating is the 2nd highest energy demand. The Power-Pipe can dramatically cut water heating costs and reduce total home energy consumption by 5-10%.* It works by using outgoing warm drain water to heat incoming cold fresh water so your water heater doesn't have to work as hard. The Power-Pipe will typically pay for itself in 2 to 10 years, and even faster after Government or Utility grants. The Power-Pipe's performance has been tested in accordance with the CSA B55.1 standard and independently verified by Intertek. Additionally, the Power-Pipe is safe for drinking water, requires no maintenance, has no moving parts, increases effective hot water capacity, extends water heater life, and can be used with any type of plumbing system. Furthermore, Power-Pipe technology is proven, practical, affordable, and in use in many thousands of homes. A Power-Pipe will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 1 ton/year per household in the average family

    Safe for potable?

    The UL certification for this product is not for drinking water. Therefore I can only connect it to the hot water tank, not the entire house (as per some heat recovery units)?
    Asked by: Smithy
    Yes this is safe for potable water. "This unit is ULC approved for use with potable water on the coil side and for black water on the drain side." I hope this helps.
