Direct Installation Programs
A direct installation program guarantees that the fixture are installed, and is more reliable than a simple device distribution program. However, it is more expensive, as it requires the water utility to provide trained installers to complete the installations at the customer’s home or business. The most common devices installed in direction installation programs are: showerheads, toilets, aerators, pre-rinse spray valves (restaurant kitchens), urinals, irrigation controllers, etc. The installers are sometimes water utility employees, but more often the installers are contractors skilled and experienced in the installations.
