Most of us are no doubt familiar with the problems associated with drawing hot or cold water from the tap. You turn on the tap and have to wait some time before fully hot or cold water comes out. On average, in the home, this is done 9000 times per person a year.
To add to this it only takes a short while for hot water in the pipe to cool down or cold water to warm up once the tap is turned off. This is not only annoying it is also a huge waste of energy and water. There are methods available that overcome this problem by constantly circulating hot water round the system. However this still wastes a huge amount of energy as it constantly circulates hot water.

In recent years there has been numerous improvements in the energy efficiency of our homes. For example, treble glazed windows, thicker insulation and heat recovery ventilations systems. Nevertheless energy consumption in hot water systems has seen little improvement. However by incorporating 3eflow technology in to the energy saving arena savings of between 15-50% can be achieved. It also enables cost effective individual metering should it be desired.
