Where do I install a HeatBack?

HeatBack's compact size makes it versatile for installation in either new or retrofit situations and a wide variety of special application and commercial or public scenarios.

Essentially HeatBack connects to the drain of any fixture where hot or warm water is used and then disposed of. This includes basins, bath/showers, sinks, showers, tubs, laundry tubs, floor waste gullies, dish washing machines, ablution showers and basins, commercial/industrial hot water rinsing and flushing fixtures and sterilisers.

So install your HeatBack wherever hot or warm water is used intensively in your household or commercial amenity. All you need is a cavity or space 300 x 300 x 250 millimetres (about the size of a shoebox) and the desire to save your money and our planet. Remember also that the more HeatBacks you install, the bigger the savings will be!

HeatBack's efficiency increases as the temperature of the cold water being fed into your hot water heating system decreases. If you're cold water tap feels really
cold - then you should get a HeatBack!

What do I need?

Check these basic pre-requisites to ensure you can install a HeatBack. 

You need:

  • a copy of the Installation and user Guide

  • a drainage system

  • an medium or higher pressure cold water supply system feeding a hot water heating fixture. I.e. sufficient capacity for a pressure drop of 64 kPa for model HB65A and 25 kPa for HB65B (Measured at 1 bar over atmospheric pressure). Note that the latter produces somewhat lower returns.

  • a hot water amenity such as a second kitchen sink, rinsing or laundry tub, wash basin or shower tray. Ideally this amenity's drain will have a strainer or easy to clean trap

  • a discharge pipe that can provide a horizontal run-off section of at least 200 mm from the discharge plug. This is the flow stabilizing zone.

  • a cavity or space anywhere in the drain but after the flow stabilizing  section of at least 300 x 300 x 250 mm in size to install the HeatBack. 
  • a desire to save your money and reduce your carbon footprint!
