How Aqua-Saver Works
Aqua-Saver is now a completed and fully developed product that is finally ready to satisfy the tremendous interest I have received from around the world during the 12 years of development and perfecting. It is now patent granted and fully water authority tested and approved in a number of countries and has undergone over 6 years of severe testing in a number of environments, including certified testing at Liverpool University. I am now in a position to look at any investment proposals, or business suggestions that will help me get this much needed system manufactured and marketed.
It is a well known fact that a large quantity of cooled water is wasted, from hot water outlets. In a large number of domestic cases, 6 to 10 liters of precious (paid for) water is simply just run off down the drain, whilst waiting for the hot water to arrive at the hot water outlet. in commercial premises this will be many times more, due to the longer and larger pipe runs. Using the Aqua- Saver valve water saver system this water is re-circulated, saved and re-used. It must also be remembered that in most cases there is the waste water charge of 90% or more, of the incoming supply
Cold water that normally runs down the drain once the hot water outlet is opened, can either be diverted to the hot or cold water supply, via my fully dedicated unique, and patent applied for, automatic kinetic system, that has been designed purely to perform this function. To compliment this valve is a unique and patented ‘accessory’ that will send the saved water back into the hot supply pipe, without compromising the temperature, or can simply and kinetically, be sent to a suitable storage container. One of the main features is that there’s no need to change or disturb existing taps or shower heads. The valve operates automatically by the inherent kinetic energy that is present in the saved water supply, therefore there is no need for the extra cost of a regulated electricity supply, as in other systems.
The system operates through a unique world patented, thermally operated valve, that has been specifically designed for this purpose. It is attached to the hot supply pipe, directly beneath each basin. There is no need to change or alter the existing taps. Installation of Aqua-saver saver is quick and easy.
Each person in the UK and Australia uses an average of 150 liters of water per day, and this level is rising rapidly, and is simply just not sustainable. In the Uk alone 110 million liters per day of good treated water is wasted into the drainage system each day whilst waiting for the hot water to arrive at the outlet (this is equivalent to emptying 372 Olympic sized swimming pools down the drain every day of the week...!
Underpinning the Aqua-Saver system is the small and patented Aqua-Saver valve which is a totally kinetic thermal valve, which needs no external energy supply, and is attached to the hot water pipe out of sight below the sink. A quick-fit-pipe is then run to either an already installed tank or returned to heater boiler, or even to an outside storage tank if required. Alternatively, a completely new and dedicated patented ‘accessory’ can be used that will send the saved water automatically back into the hot supply pipe that feeds the water heater, this is designed especially to compliment the dedicated Aqua-Saver thermal valve, and does not compromise the temperature of the hot water supply. It is small enough to fit into any small space, under any sink or vanity unit, and requires no external energy supply; it uses the kinetic energy in the normal saved water flow. It should be remembered that whilst the saved water is being recycled, no water is running through the water meter, thus saving money on the water bills.
Any good DIY person or plumber can fit this system, and in the vast majority of cases there is no disruption to the household in retrofit situations. Given the ease of installation, the cost of fitting the system will generally be quite low.
