Every time we use a hot tap we have to wait a period of time for the water to get hot. While we wait for this to happen, the cooled water coming out of the hot tap is wasted down the drain! This water is called Redwater™.
Because we do not have a hot water system located at each hot tap, it takes a period of time for the hot water to travel through the hot water pipes and arrive at the hot tap. In between uses of the hot tap the water in the hot water pipe cools down.
The next time the hot tap is used that cooled water has to be pushed through first before the hot water. This cooled water has been heated once and is called Redwater™.
The founders of Redwater™ Australia wanted to solve this problem by creating a product that was simple, easy to use and didn't require electricity or a premeditated operation to save water.
So they created the Redwater™ Diverter!
Unlike other systems – the Redwater Diverter does not need any buttons to press and does not need the installation of electrical wiring in combination with your plumbing. Overall the installation of Redwater Diverter technology will be a cheaper, longer lived, easier to use, hassle free solution than alternate options.
The Redwater Diverter will not deliver hot water out the tap in such a way that there is a danger of scalding. There will always be a trickle of water coming from the tap to alert the user that there is water being diverted. There will always be the cool water between the valve and the tap that come out cool before the hot so as to alert the user that warm/hot water is coming. The Redwater™ Diverter is a small valve that is installed close to an area where hot water is used, like your kitchen and bathroom. The Redwater™ Diverter can service a single tap - like your kitchen sink, or multiple taps close together - like your bathroom.
Once installed you use your hot tap normally. The Redwater™ Diverter automatically sends the Redwater™/cooled water to a predetermined area such as:
Rain water tanks
Gardens or garden irrigation
Livestock drinking water
The Redwater is sent to these areas through a return line, which is connected to your Redwater™ Diverter(s).
The Redwater™ Diverter(s) can be retrofitted to almost all existing plumbing systems, and can be easily incorporated into new systems.
The Redwater™ Diverter is a small valve that is installed close to an area where hot water is used, like your kitchen and bathroom. The Redwater™ Diverter can service a single tap - like your kitchen sink, or multiple taps close together - like your bathroom.
The most obvious is the kitchen sink where hot water is often used throughout the day. Commonly, the water must travel a long distance to reach the outlet. For optimum water savings, the Redwater™ Diverter could be installed in the cupboard below the control valve (tap) offering maximum saving, with only the smallest amount of “cooled water”/Redwater™ being discarded. The Redwater™ Diverter could also be positioned under the floor, in the ceiling space, or in a commercial situation in service ducts provided.
Another example of a high usage area is the bathroom. In this case the Redwater™ Diverter could be installed to service multiple fixtures such as the shower, bath and basin, or individually only to the shower.
The Redwater™ Diverter can be installed upstream from any fixture where hot water is required.
Once installed your Redwater™ Diverter should operate as follows – when the hot tap is turned on, a small amount of water will be released from the tap and will continue to trickle. This is to show the cooled water in the line is now being diverted. Once hot water reaches your Redwater™ Diverter it will be directed to the tap for use. Depending on the location of your Redwater™ Diverter a small amount of cooled water will be released from the tap before the hot water. Hot water will now flow to the tap. If the tap is not used for some time and the water in the hot water pipe cools the cycle will begin again the next time the tap is operated. If hot water is required frequently, it will be delivered to the tap without the cycle taking place.
About the Return Line
The return line will deliver potable water to any area required at the same pressure it is supplied with. If using gravity fed supply and you wish to store the water for later use, a separate storage tank would be required. Ask your plumber about the best way to use your water around the home.
Delivery Australia Wide is $15.95.
