The CCBDA welcomes Watercycles Energy Recovery Inc. as its newest Member 
Company. 
TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Based in Edenwold Saskatchewan, Watercycles 
manufactures and distributes drain water heat recovery units (DWHRU) across 
North America and has started to make inroads in Europe. They manufacture a 
number of types of units, geared to both residential and commercial 
applications in a variety of sizes and configurations. A key focus of the 
company is on the raising awareness of their product to new home builders and 
particularly R-2000 builders. 
All of their products, however, share the beneficial characteristic of 
recouping the energy a home or business owner has already purchased to heat 
their domestic water. By recovering that energy an owner will then save on the 
amount of energy needed to heat any subsequent incoming water. 
In fact, from Watercycles' website "Drain-Water Heat Recovery is recognized by 
the U.S. Department of Energy and Natural Resources Canada as an efficient way 
to save energy with an average payback period of 2-7 years." This makes DWHRUs 
an essential green technology for both the new and renovation residential 
construction markets as well as for commercial and process industries, 
especially those with intensive water uses. 
Watercycles also participated with CSA, CCBDA, and other industry stakeholders 
on the development of a new performance standard on these units. From CSA, 
Standard C55 "specifies requirements for measuring the heat recovery 
efficiency and pressure loss for vertically installed, falling-film DWHR 
units". In fact, Watercycles products already meet the new CSA B 55.2 standard. 
DWHRU can be used in conjunction with traditional water heaters, tankless 
water heaters, and with geothermal and solar water heating systems. And the 
models from Watercycles have a simple design with no moving parts, they are 
100% recyclable copper construction (and manufactured from copper tube 
primarily fabricated from recycled product itself). The units consume no 
energy while passively reducing carbon emissions, and can extend the life of a 
water heater by reducing its energy consumption. 
The CCBDA looks forward to working with Watercycles Energy Recovery Inc. over 
the coming years to promote these effective and green energy savings devices 
across Canada, and through the ICA network of 27 global partners, around the 
world.
