National Casual Dining – Dipwell Retrofit

PDF version

Taking responsibility for our environment is everyone’s responsibility.  Efficient use of water is a big part of every restaurant’s operation as is environmental stewardship.  When a National Casual Dining Restaurant began their Watersense initiatives they turned to Source One to decommission and retrofit high efficiency dipwells in their restaurants.  The project involved removal and disposal of old dipwells and installation of high efficiency dipwells that required new electrical connections for each.  Source One installed 3 new dipwells in each facility and added three 120VAC receptacles and 20Amp breakers for each.

Project Scope

Locations: 662 Stores
Project Duration: 60 Days
Trades and Skills: Journeyman Electrician and Plumber

Consult with Customer to develop a schedule to perform work after store closing.

A procurement and material shipping schedule was developed to coordinate material and labor to arrive on the same day of service.

A deployment plan was developed to enable multi trade teams to complete the retrofit on an overnight basis.

Work was scheduled with a 60 day deployment goal.


Shipping Coordination:  Source One scheduled all product shipping intervals for just in time material arrival.

Furnish Material: Installation TEAM was provided with Electrical Receptacles, Conduits and Electric Cable to install power for new dipwells.

Decommissions:  retired systems were decommissioned and disposed of.  Water lines were capped until new dipwell was fitted.

Installation: Electrical outlets were installed to isolated 20 amp circuit breakers.  All cable and electrical was dressed and concealed.  Dipwells were mounted and connected to power and water service.


Each dipwell was tested for proper operation.

Project and photo documentation recorded and project reports sent to customer.

Review work with Store Manager for final acceptance.
