Drain Water Heat Recovery Devices - Thoughts?


Maybe I should invent one that uses flushed toilet water to cool the water going into your icemaker so that your fridge doesn't have to use so much energy.....

Uh, how would toilet water get any cooler than the cold water that feeds the icemaker?

in capitalizing under the guise of efficiency when the payback/amortization is realized after the death of the calitalizer or capitalizee seems to me there're better uses for idle capital like investing it.

far's any government reports, wait 6mos & there'll be another concluding the opposite,,, next to come, global cooling ! ! !

Global decompression is next on government scare list. Don't tell the FBI I told you though.

Best idea I've heard in a while, I'd buy one for each toilet in my house. I bet this would pay for itself in just a couple months. Can we make it out of heavy copper with gold plating?
