Hot drain water enery recovering system

Hot drainwater clings to the inside of the all-copper Power Pipeâ„¢ in a thin film, efficiently transferring its heat (recycling energy) to incoming cold water circulating in the coils.
The Power-Pipeâ„¢ uses the ultra-high heat transfer and thermal-conductive properties of copper to recycle heat for your drainwater and reduce your hot water bill. By taking the heat from wastewater that goes down your drain, the Power-Pipeâ„¢ (also known as GFX) pre-heats the fresh water heading into your hot water tank, providing significant savings and energy efficiency!
