In pursuit of such goals, Capetonian Roger Matthews, a master plumber, retreated to his study for two years to devise a system that could help the poor, travellers or even the elite.
He has recently invented a gas heating system that generates unlimited hot water â€“ requiring neither municipal pressure nor energy in the form of electricity.
â€œI have a Master Plumberâ€™s qualification, Class 1 Ministry of Environmental and gas practitioner licences, so I am fully qualified to take on any multistorey job that requires hot water systems,â€ Matthews reveals.
To arrest the trend, Matthews spent three months in the Khayelitsha and Philippi townships of Cape Town, experimenting with his invention. Residents there hailed it as a timely innovation.
Matthews used a five-kilogramme gas cylinder, 12-volt battery, a tank and plumbing copper pipes in building a stand-alone system that is ideal for domestic use or by travellers. This user-friendly technology can equally heat seawater in 35 seconds â€“ proof that any form of water could be warmed up by his innovation.
