Energy efficient plumbing

A well designed plumbing system can offer significant water and energy savings.


There have been many developments in recent years that have made plumbing systems more energy efficient and green.

Grey water treatment plants and rainwater harvesting plants can help to reduce the amount of drinking water wasted in a home, simply by either using rainwater or bore water, or recycling used water for the purpose of watering plants and irrigation.

Having a good understanding of how your plumbing system works can easily help you save money both on water and on electricity.

Pipe lagging

Lagging and heat loss

See how lagging (insulation) and the distance that hot water has to travel through your pipes can affect energy efficiency in your hot water system.

Grey water systems

Just because water from the tap has been used, it doesn't mean it can't be used again. See how grey water systems can help reduce your water waste.

Cold water diverter

Cold water diverters

In most plumbing setups, it takes a while for hot water to reach the hot tap when it's turned on. Cold water diverters recycle the cold water which would otherwise pour down the drain in this time.
