PiPe is a vertical shower drain heat recovery solution adaptable to shower trays, linear drains or bathtubs, with a flow drainage recommended up to 25L/min, able to deliver energy savings up to 75%. It transfers heat from the shower’s hot waste water to the incoming cold mains supply. This preheated incoming mains water is then directed to either the shower mixer, the water heater or, preferably, both.
The Zypho® PiPe does not require maintenance and can be installed in new or retrofitted buildings.
Simple and efficient. With an easy installation by any plumber.
ZYPHO® offers shower drain heat recovery systems leading to energy savings and reducing carbon footprint, without compromising the aesthetics of your space.
Zypho® Systems design minimizes Legionella-related risks:
Drain water never stays inside the unit for a long time, since the construction guarantees that it is fully drained out at the end of every shower.
After the shower, the cold water cools down to less than 25°C, as recommended by the WHO and the European Working Group for Legionella Infections.
Since Zypho® PiPe is installed relatively close to the shower tap, the distance between the unit and the shower trap is minimized.
Zypho® Heat Exchangers have been designed to not require maintenance. Periodic cleaning is recommended to optimise energy exchange. Use a non-corrosive drain cleaner or a water jet. We recommend our water jet brush ZYMN00000J1.
