Pressure Reducing Valve Rebate Application

  • Citrus Heights Water District (CHWD) offers rebates to customers who install a pressure reducing valve (PRV) on their service connection to reduce incoming water pressure. To qualify for the rebate, a CHWD representative must be permitted to inspect the property to verify installation of the PRV.

    Installed after the water meter at homes or commercial buildings, PRVs automatically reduce the pressure from the water supply main to a pre-set level (i.e. generally 60 to 65 pounds per square inch) that is more suitable for efficient operation of irrigation systems, fixtures, and appliances. Higher water pressure results in higher energy and water heating costs, and can cause damage to plumbing pipes.

    Please read the Rebate Program Requirements below. All PRVs must be labeled as Lead-Free according to California State Law. Rebate applications require the signature of the property owner (if different than the applicant).

    Indicate the manufacturer name and model of the PRV, the purchase price (excluding sales tax and labor) and the date of purchase.

    6. No rebate will exceed the purchase price of the item. Sales tax and labor are not rebated.
