1. What's the point in having this device?
Most people are not aware of how much energy is required to heat water. In average 23% of electric consumption of a 2 member household is used for heating water , most of it in in the bathroom / shower. Defcon8 is about empowering consumers to take more control and be more aware about their water consumption.
2. What does the display show? It shows water consumption and it's temperature while taps are open. After 3 minutes of non use the display is reset but the captured flow & temp data is sent to the cloud for statistical treatment. 3. What benefits do the users get? Displaying the consumption awakes users' consciousness, generates a cause-effect reaction and less water is used. For a 40 room 4* hotel we save 255m3 of water, 13200 KWh & 8.4 Tn CO2 / year. 4. Technical requeriments: Electrical : 220V AC / 50Hz Hydraulic : stantand Gas 3/4'' threads. Communications ( are optional ) : data gets to our server through own 3G or internet. 5. Is it compatible with aereators, electronic mixers, pressure regulators /temporized taps? 100% yes 6. Does it requiere maintenance or calibration? No. 7.Does this device add any pressure losses? 0,04 kg / cm2 with 10 l / min flow 8. What's the warranty period? Three years. 9. Does it withstand legionella tests? Yes. 10. Is it just for new building / refurbishments? It's easier, due to wiring & plumbing but it can be installed in existing bathrooms too. 11. Does it require any special mounting position / angle? Performance is the same vertical or horizontally fit. 12. which units is the information shown? There are two possible configurations : ºC/l and ºF/gal. 13. Can I connect it to a high pressure toilet flush ? Yes, as long as pressure is under 10B ( 1MPa ) and flowrate below 25 l / min. 14. Do I need a special mirror?
