The Upfallshower is a water and energy-saving shower system that can be placed anywhere. Whether it concerns new-build homes or renovations, an Upfall shower can be installed where there is a shower.
Drinking water has been under pressure for years. Drinking water companies are finding it increasingly difficult to meet the increasing demand for drinking water. At the same time, consumers want more and more luxury in their bathroom. Rain showers that use more and more water. In the past you could only have a rain shower with a CW% or CW6 class gas boiler, nowadays the size of your boiler increasingly determines how large that boiler should be. More and more people are opting for boilers that are much larger than the standard boiler that is usually installed in new-build homes. The latest craze is a double rain shower.
In new buildings, you can opt for an economy hand shower, but residents can easily replace them with a normal hand shower.
An Upfall shower uses about 2 liters of water at 55/60 degrees per minute, a saving hand shower 4 liters, a normal hand shower 6 liters, a rain shower 10 or more.
Water savings with an Upfall shower can even go up to 90% compared to a large rain shower.
An Upfall shower uses much less energy than a normal shower. This can even go up to 80% compared to a normal rain shower. A boiler, district heating or a central heating system with boiler is required. A 100-litre boiler is sufficient for a 45-minute shower.
Using the Upfallshower ensures that much less water is discharged through the sewer. We advise all our users to switch to the use of biodegradable soap and shampoo products. In this way, the waste water to be discharged is hardly polluted.
It should of course be clear that less energy consumption also means that there is also less CO2 emissions. Co2 is also released when making drinking water, and there is also a reduction there.
The Upfallshower is easy to install. The system comes out of the box in one piece. Connecting water, drainage and electricity (175 watts), securing the system and dismantling. Look here
The Upfallshower requires no more than two minutes of maintenance per week for the user. The system is made up of existing technical components that are widely available and the system can be fully accessed by removing the glass plate. For a user there is no cost other than one but a bottle of cleaner per year. So no filters need to be replaced.
