What is a Heatpump

a Domestic hot water Heat Pump is a very effiecient water heating device. It uses a small amount of electricity to produce up to for times more heat energy. So by connecting an Heat Pump to youtr existing hot water cylinder you can divide hot water heating bill by up to four. Unlike a Solar Geyser, an Heat Pump is not directly dependent on the sun and therefore it can operate day and night, winter and summer, ensuring the highest possible savings.

How does a Heat Pump Work ?

a Heat Pump works like an air conditioning unit but in reverse. the Heat Pump extracts heat from the ambient air surrounding the unit, this enables the unit to heat the refrigerant which is then compressed causing it to get even hotter. The heated refrigerant is then being pumped through a heat exchanger in which the water is heated. The refrigerant is then allowed to expand thus cooling it down and enabling it again to absorb the heat from the surrounding air.

“Saving the Water you waste down the Drain”

Every Time you wait for Hot Water to come through the tap, the cool water running out first is wasted down the drain, this cool water is called Redwater and can be saved by installing a Redwater diverter.

You can SAVE this cool water easily by installing a Redwater Diverter Valve

What is a Redwater Diverter Valve ?

  • It is a valve that saves Redwater, the cool water before the hot water runs out of your tap and sends it to either a rainwater tank, a storage tank, a garden or a pool.
  • Uses no Electricity, No Pumps, Elements, Solenoids, Timers or the like.
  • Obtains nearly 100 % water recovery
  • is Suitable for Retrofit and new installations
  • No Ongoing Cost as it only requires some plumbing

Where should the Redwater valve be installed ?

For optimum water and cost and water savings the Redwater diverter valve should be installed in high hot water usage areas like below the kitchen sink or in the ceiling above the bathroom to serve multiple fixtures.

Research has shown that an average household using the Redwater diverter system could save up to 16 000 liters of potable water every year
