THERMODRAIN BUILDING CODES

At EcoInnovation Technologies, we follow and respect the building code guidelines set by individual provinces.

THERMODRAIN AND THE ONTARIO BUILDING CODE

A ThermoDrain drain water heat recovery device must be installed on a shower in a residential dwelling such as a home, condominium or apartment.

If more than one shower is in the home, at least two showers must be hooked to the ThermoDrain.

The ThermoDrain must be at least 42% efficient. The efficiency must be verified to the CSA B55.2 and the unit must be safety certified to the CSA B55.2 standard. The ThermoDrain is Intertek safety certified to CSA B55.2 & Intertek performance verified to CSA B55.1. The model used to meet the code requirement is the TD342B.

The ThermoDrain must have the cold water hooked to the bottom of the unit.

Preheated water from the ThermoDrain can be installed in 3 different ways.

  1. Preheated water is sent to the inlet of the hot water tank
  2. Preheated water is sent to the cold outlet of the shower
  3. Both a) and b)

Drain water heat recovery is not required where there are no stories beneath the shower in the home.

For complex installations such as condos, apartments where a drain stack is shared with several dwellings, the MURBS guide will help determine how to install this technology and meet the code requirements.
