High Efficiency Pre-Rinse Sprayer
For a limited time, commercial customers with kitchens can request a high efficiency Pre-Rinse Sprayer using about 1.0 gpm to replace any sprayer using more than 1.2 gpm. The current federal standard for pre-rinse sprayers is no more than 1.6 gpm. This high efficiency sprayer has had favorable feedback from kitchen staff and can annually save about 13,000 gallons or about $300 for daily use of 1 hour when replacing a 1.6 gpm model. Large kitchens may use a sprayer for 4 hours per day.
Other, no cost, efficiency devices available include: Faucet aerators (0.5 gpm to 1.5 gpm), toilet leak detection dye tablets, toilet fill cycle diverters, and showerheads (1.5 gpm).
