Water heating floor / tile

Water heating floor

During the shower, the heat in the flowing water is wasted, which leads to energy waste and heat pullotion the environment.The heat exchanger delivers the heat from the warm waste water on the ground to the cold incoming water which will lately combine with the new hot water. In this way, energy will be saved. Water heating floor can replace the common Skid Resistant Tile.The convex supporting structure and concave water pipe makes the rough surface. The convex structure is warmed by the water, so that it will not be cold for the people standing on that.
