The Company

CINTEP is an Australian Company based in Brisbane, Australia that designs and build the most efficient shower systems in the world.

CINTEP’s showers use 70% less water and 70% less energy than conventional showers without reducing flow rate at the shower head, water pressure, water temperature or time spent in the shower.

CINTEP’s showers start every shower with 3 litres of fresh drinking water and then capture, filter and heat pasteurise that water whilst it is in use. The treatment process takes less than 30 seconds and means no water is stored in the shower and no water is shared between users.

CINTEP’s shower can be used in commercial and residential applications and in new build and renovations. Our patented technology will be available in early 2015 and we are actively seeking distributors around the world.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make it possible for an average shower user, without compromising on their enjoyment of showering, to consume 20 litres or less of water per day, with a payback on additional cost of less than 3 years, for 50% of the population.

To save 1 Billion litres of Water by the end of 2016 (we have to sell 2,500 showers to do this) 

To save 1 Million tons of CO2 by the end of 2020 (we need to install 100,000 showers to do this)
