Hot from the US: EcoDrain

15 August 2014

We love bringing you the latest in energy saving product innovations from around the globe. This month we take a look at a product from the US that’s caught our attention:


Have you ever considered how much wasted energy flows down the drain during your shower every day? Flowing water is an extremely viable form of energy but there hasn’t been an easy way to capture it until now.


Developed in the US the EcoDrain™ is an easy-to-install, specifically engineered piping configuration that transfers heat energy from the hot shower water to the incoming fresh water supply. The ecodrain turbulator then turns on to ensure maximum energy recovery from the fresh water. The turbulator works to double the rate at which the cold water picks up the heat energy. This means less energy is used to heat the water, reducing energy bills and lowering the carbon footprint of the home.
