    Overview

    Model # R4-72 Store SKU # 1000698147

    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

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money It was installed by our builder to get his Energy Star certificate

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with our lower electrical bill. We've been very happy with our unit. Natural Resources Canada says it recovers 63% of the heat from drain water when showering. Has to be installed vertically to work properly. We installed a heat pump (to replace oil heat) at the same time as we installed our PowerPipe, so it's hard to say exactly how much we're saving. We do know this: our electricity bill basically stayed the same even though we started heating our home electrically while saving on our electrically heated hot water because of the PowerPipe.
