RenewABILITY Energy Inc. (REI) was incorporated on July 25, 2000. Its mandate is to provide Cost Effective Energy Saving Solutions specified and designed by highly qualified Engineers.
The Power-Pipe is RenewABILITY Energy's unique solution designed to reclaim heat energy from shower drainwater and other commercial/industrial effuent.
The company has offered innovative energy savings solutions in institutional, commercial, industrial, and residential applications for over six years.

Industrial Waste-Heat Recovery
Drainwater clings to the inside pipe wall and falls quickly creating a thin “falling-film” which quickly imparts its heat to the pipe wall. Copper is used for both the inner pipe and outer tube, and its conductivity has a heat transfer rate that is 4-6x greater than other classes of heat exchanger on a surface area basis.
The Power-Pipe™ is an all-copper section of drainpipe. As water falls down a vertical section of drainpipe, it clings to the inner surface in a very thin film. The heat from this film is transferred easily and efficiently to the cold water circulating in the Power-Pipe™ around the outside of the drainpipe.
The incoming cold water is preheated before going into the water heater and plumbing fixtures, saving money and energy while increasing shower-capacity. A sixty inch Power-Pipe™ unit can bring the cold water temperature up from 10 degrees C to as much as 24 degrees C, under equal flow conditions. If it is connected to only the water heater or only the cold water fixtures, the savings is less but the temperature rises up to about 28 degrees C.
Power-Pipe™ raises the temperature of incoming cold water by recycling free heat from wastewater going down the drain. About 90% of all hot water energy goes down the drain, allowing the Power-Pipe™ to recycle as much as 60% of the wasted heat. The more hot water you use, the more energy you save.
