Is your restaurant rinsing money down the drain?

Retrofitting your business with water-conserving products can lower your operating costs, as well as helping conserve one of San Antonio's most precious natural resources...water. As a Certified WaterSaver, your restaurant will notice measurable cost savings, as well as enhanced performance.

Three simple requirements:

  • All pre-rinse spray valves must be 1.6 gallons per minute.
  • All toilets must be 1.6 gallons per flush.
  • All ice machines must be air-cooled.

If you require upgrades in order to become a Certified WaterSaver and want to realize measurable savings NOW, we are offering these benefits AT NO CHARGE TO YOU! Enroll now, start saving today!

Restaurant Certified WaterSaverCertified WaterSaver Program Benefits:

  • As a Certified WaterSaver, your restaurant will gain FREE PUBLICITY for its efforts in water conservation

  • FREE Pre-Rinse Kitchen Spray Valve & FREE INSTALLATION
    High velocity spray pattern increases performance and efficiency over older, inefficient models. The new stainless steel valve uses less hot water - only 1.6 gallons of water per minute, compared to 2 - 6 gallons per minute with standard valves and comes with a five-year warranty. Water and waste-water savings estimated at 100 - 300 gallons of HOT water per day.

  • FREE Ultra-Low Flow Toilets & FREE INSTALLATION
    If you still have old toilets, using 3.5 to 7 gallons of water per flush, you are wasting as much as 80 gallons of water per toilet, per day! Replace your water-guzzling toilets with 1.6 gallon toilets and save on water and sewage costs. Water savings estimated at 80 gallons of water per toilet, per day.

  • UPGRADE to an air-cooled ICE MACHINE and receive a REBATE
    of up to 50% of the purchase cost
    Water-cooled ice machines use nearly 150 gallons of condenser water to produce 100 pounds of ice, plus 20 gallons of water to make the ice. Air-cooled ice machines use only the 20 gallons necessary to make 100 pounds of ice. Water savings estimated at 150 gallons per every 100 pounds of ice produced daily.
