Warm Flow / Kennel

Warm Flow
Warm Flow

Based on the simple principle of “heat transfer”, the “Warm Flow” suggests reusing hot water from a bath to heat the kennel through an independent bathroom drain. This design, which is mainly for the families having pets and living in a villa, could save a lot of heat from wasting to no purpose and, meanwhile, keep dogs or cats warm in winter.

Besides, the copper tube at the bottom of the kennel is withdrawrable, and the laying of the copper tube is benefit to increase the contact area. All the water will finally go back to the main house drain.The wall of kennel is hollow to keep warm.
