Shower Power - harnessing the heat in your wastewater

post-image
Think about the warm water in your shower, dishwasher, washing machine and more. All that heat is wasted as it goes down your drain. It is even worse in hotels or industrial applications like dairies, food manufacturing and breweries. So why not intercept the warm/hot water as it exits the building and before it goes into the sewers? Via a holding tank with a heat pump, you can then extract the heat and re-direct it to where it is needed rather than wasting it - saving money and GHGs . 
What do you think?
