FlowSmart provides any hot water outlets that are distant (more than 12m) from a cylinder with almost instant hot water with an energy efficient, low cost and easy to install solution. This enables a single hot water cylinder to serve outlets that would usually be too far away and that may otherwise require a second water heater.
Used in any home with more than 12m distance between cylinder and a hot water outlet
Can be used as energy efficiency device in any home or building with a ring main and without a BMS control system
Can be installed on any hot water cylinder
Is an ideal complement to an energy efficient hot water system using a hot water heat pump, solar hot water system or central heating boiler
Provides a time and temperature control for circulating hot water to remote outlets
Easily programmable controller with 3 adjustable time periods for householder to alter if desired
Thermostat control stops pump operating when hot water is available at remote outlet
Simple addition to architectural plans
Plug and play controller for straightforward installation
PIR movement sensor/s for very low use rooms that only occasionally need hot water, such as a guest bathroom
Controller only option can be used to improve the efficiency with thermostatic control of any ring main system in residential and commercial buildings
The system can be used on any domestic hot water system in a home or commercial building
Ideal for projects where a single hot water cylinder needs serve outlets that would usually be too far away and that may otherwise require a second water heater.
Optional PIR movement sensor/s for very low use rooms that only occasionally need hot water, such as a guest bathroom
Limitations on Use
The pipework loop to the remote outlet/s and the cylinder must come off the cylinder before the tempering valve to meet Building Code requirements
A local tempering valve/s is required above or at the point of use to temper the water down to 55°C to meet Building Code.
One controller and pump can circulate water through one pipe loop, all outlets served need to be on this pipe loop. A second pipe loop in an opposite direction can be added but this requires a complete second FlowSmart system.
