Redwater™ Diverter

The Redwater™ Diverter was invented in Australia and is patented in Australia, New Zealand, USA and South Africa, and is the winner of “The Most Innovative Product” at The Green Expo – Sandton 2012.

Most households do not have a hot water system / geyser located most-innovative-productclose to each tap which means it takes time for the hot water to travel through the pipes and arrive at the hot tap. While you are not using the hot water tap, the water in the pipes cools down, so the next time you run the hot water tap, this cool water is pushed through the pipes before the hot water arrives. This cool water is called redwater and is usually lost down the drain. This redwater can be saved by installing a Redwater Diverter.

redwater-diverter-valve

The Redwater Diverter is a valve that diverts the cool water, before it reaches the tap, to a rainwater tank, a header tank in the roof to flush the toilets, to the garden or to top up the swimming pool.

It requires no electricity, which means no ongoing costs, no new wiring to new locations, no wastage of energy from pumps or heat loss in recirculating pipes. It only requires some plumbing for the initial installation.
