Compliance of Our Waste Water Heat Recovery System with EN 1717 Standards

Our Waste Water Heat Recovery System (WWHSR) is designed and installed in full compliance with the EN 1717 standards, ensuring the highest levels of safety and efficiency.

Key Features of Our WWHSR:

Designed for Category 2 and 3 Fluids:

Our WWHSR is specifically designed to handle Category 2 and 3 fluids. These fluids are classified as posing a slight to moderate health risk but do not involve hazardous substances.

Safe and Secure Installation:

The system is installed in a clean area within the shower, prior to the siphon, ensuring it is not exposed to any potentially hazardous environments such as gases or liquids from sewage systems. This installation method guarantees that the WWHSR only interacts with clean shower water, maintaining a safe environment for heat recovery.

Robust Single-Wall Construction:

In accordance with EN 1717 standards (Article 5.3.2 and Article, our WWHSR uses a single-wall heat exchanger. This is permissible because the system is not exposed to environments that could pose a higher risk of contamination, ensuring the protection of the potable water supply.

Ease of Access for Maintenance:

The system includes a lightweight (2kg) lid that can be easily lifted, providing straightforward access to the heat exchanger. This feature allows for quick and efficient inspection and cleaning, further ensuring the system’s safe operation and longevity.

By adhering to these stringent standards and design principles, our WWHSR not only enhances energy efficiency but also ensures the highest levels of safety and compliance with European norms. Choose our system for a reliable, efficient, and safe solution for waste water heat recovery.

Please note that the provided information is specific to the WWHRS shower tray and its technical specifications. Ensure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and instructions for accurate and proper installation.

By adhering to these stringent standards and design principles, our WWHSR not only enhances energy efficiency but also ensures the highest levels of safety and compliance with applicable norms from Europe, UK, USA, Canada, and several other countries.

Please consult with a local advisor for local standards and normatives.

You can consult general standards as follow:

European Energy Efficiency Directive: This directive establishes a common framework of measures to promote energy efficiency within the European Union.

National Building Regulations: Each EU country has its own building regulations that incorporate energy efficiency requirements and may include the installation of energy recovery systems.

EN Standards: The European Standards (EN) developed by CEN (European Committee for Standardization) provide specific guidelines on the installation and performance of energy efficiency systems.

Energy Efficiency Certifications and Labels: Products and systems often need to meet specific standards to receive certifications like the CE mark, ensuring compliance with EU directives.

United Kingdom:
Building Regulations (Part G, Part L): The UK Building Regulations contain specific requirements for water and energy conservation. Part G deals with hygiene, water supply, and sanitation, while Part L focuses on the conservation of fuel and power.

British Standards (BS):  BS 8515 refers to the collection and use of rainwater, and other standards may cover energy recovery technologies.

Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS): Although primarily focused on managing rainwater, SuDS principles can be applied to technologies related to water efficiency.

United States:
International Plumbing Code (IPC): Published by the International Code Council (ICC), the IPC establishes regulations for the installation of plumbing systems, including heat recovery devices.

Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC): Developed by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), the UPC can also include requirements for energy recovery systems.

ASHRAE Standards: The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers publishes standards like ASHRAE 90.1, which addresses energy efficiency in buildings.

EPA WaterSense Program: While primarily focused on water conservation, products and systems that reduce water consumption can receive WaterSense certification.

LEED Certification: The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification promotes sustainable buildings and can include credits for the installation of energy efficiency and heat recovery systems.

Accessing and Consulting Regulations:
In Europe, directives and regulations can be found on the European Union’s website and national standardization agencies.
In the United Kingdom, the Building Regulations and British Standards are available through the government’s website and the British Standards Institution (BSI).
In the United States, building codes such as the IPC and UPC are available through the ICC and IAPMO, and ASHRAE standards can be consulted on the ASHRAE website.
