Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

The EcoDrain can be installed below the shower during either new construction or bathroom renovation to help increase energy efficiency by reducing hot water energy use. According to the manufacturer.

The EcoDrain is designed to make the reuse of shower waste heat practical. Its key feature is a patent-pending turbulator which optimally stirs the waste water in order to maximize heat exchanger performance in a small device.

The EcoDrain is installed directly under the shower. This minimizes heat loss and makes installation easy in new home construction and in most bathroom renovation projects. 


I observed this product at this years West Coast Green conference and was impressed – Contact EcoDrain at: info@ecodrain.ca or 514-448-4798
