We have now received a new batch of VXpipes including a new version of the installation kit.
This kit includes a newly developed turbo-rotator which makes sure that the drain water from the shower enters the VXpipe with rotating motion, and avoids it to fall through the pipe without touching the copper walls.
In the previous version of the kit this was accomplished by means of a T-piece and two 45deg elbows, adding a great deal of installation height.
The picture to the right shows both the ‘old’ solution (below) and the new rotator (top) mounted on a VXpipe 1700. The reduction in the required installation height depends a bit on the top and bottom drain connections (horizontal or vertical), but is around 10-15cm.
The new kit will work on all VXpipe version (1700, 2015 and HF). Note that is does not include the valve and the brass connectors for the cold water.
