If you operate a commercial kitchen in Vancouver you could save between $200 and $400 per year by installing a high efficiency* pre-rinse spray valve.

The City of Vancouver is offering a program in partnership with BC Hydro and FortisBC to replace old and inefficient pre-rinse spray valves. There is no charge for installation and it takes just 20 minutes. It is offered on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. The offer ends December 20, 2017.

You may qualify if you meet the following conditions:

  • Your establishment is in the City of Vancouver.
  • You have an existing pre-rinse spray valve that needs to be replaced. 
  • You have well-maintained plumbing, including connecting pipes and hoses.

To sign up for a replacement please visit the following City of Vancouver page Free Spray Valves for Restaurants and complete the online registration form.

*A high-efficiency pre-rinse spray valve has a flow rate that is less than 4.35 litres per minute (1.15 gal/min) at a water pressure of 415 kilopascals (60 PSI).
