Our Eco-Duo pipe system is truly a game changer in the world of potable water systems and plumbing supplies. Not only does the system save around 50% of energy costs, but it also halves all the fittings needed, and up to halves the time and costs of installation.
As it is a one pipe system, it is easier and less time consuming to install and any requirement to cut the piping once it is installed is done using the traditional method currently used by plumbers.
Unlike traditional copper pipe systems, Eco-Duo brings the circulating water right up to the point of use, completely eliminating the possibility of dead legs in the system, resolving one of the main causes of water-borne pathogens within potable water systems today. This benefit, added to the stability of temperature, goes a long way in the fight against all water-borne pathogens including Legionella.
Another unique aspect of our system is that our Continuous Isolation Valve allows water to keep circulating around the system even when the water supply needs to be isolated.
Our unique Confluence T fitting allows Eco-Duo to be fitted to all types of heating or cooling device and does not require any specialised taps but fits to current tap configurations.
Circulates water right up to the tap.
All of us here at Water Kinetics are very proud to be part of the amazing story of how the new Eco Duo system was invented.
Maxwell Bridges, one of our founding Directors, has always been someone to think about how things can be improved, and how solutions to problems can be found.
A great lover of nature documentaries, Maxwell was watching a show on how penguins in the Antarctic keep warm and prevent their feet from sticking to the ice that a moment of inventive inspiration came upon him.
Penguins have an ingenious system working within their feet, which creates a counter current heat exchange from the blood traveling to their feet which then warms their blood up as it travels back to their heart.
This system keeps penguins able to withstand the below freezing temperatures of the South Pole and ensure all blood is flowing at an even temperature throughout their body.
Maxwell thought that if it can work for blood vessels then it could work for pipework systems!
After much trial, error, testing and thought, the worlds first single pipe recirculation system was born!
Nature has so much to teach us and we are sure that there will be many more inventions and innovative products still to be created from its inspiration.
This is why our company brand and logo features the beautiful outline of a penguin.
