Project Title: New design for waste water plumbing.
Water is an increasingly precious resource, yet we throw away almost all the water in our homes. We are even more wasteful with the energy we use to heat it since, again, almost all the heat goes literally down the drain.
Redesign the domestic plumbing system to recover the thermal energy from waste water, and to make intelligent use of greywater. Design the products which go together to make this new system. If the savings can be shown to be substantial, then the technology used could become a justifiable investment.
