Non-vented Shower Extract System


Postby jemball » Fri Mar 13, 2009 12:05 pm

Is there a shower extract system which does not require an external vent?

Such as you find with tumble-dryers, where the water vapour is condensed back into water and then discharged via the drain.

If yes, who manufactures it?

I don't know one off the top of my head.

If I might ask - why don't you want one with an external vent? There may be a solution to any impracticality you may be seeing.

Thanks Roseberry.

The shower will be on the ground floor by the wall next to our neighbour's side access, so the vent may inconvenience them when in use.

I don't want to take it up through the flat roof in case I compromise the guarantee. The only other option is to duct it out through the front wall using about 15 ft of duct.

Oh ground floor! Going up to the roof is not an option - all you'll have is a nice tall condensation trap.

This vent shouldn't really be a nuisance to your neighbour in reality. Have you asked them? If they aren't unhappy - job done.
