Things change, but I asked about having a Hepvo installed in the kitchen because I didn't want that trap hanging down and effectively blocking that large area under the sink. I was told... no. That was two years ago, so it wouldn't hurt to ask again.

It may be that the Hepvo valve is not blessed by the Canadian plumbing standards. If you look under the bathroom sink the trap is called an "S-trap" instead of a P-trap. It allows for a closer drainpipe to the sink than a P-trap.
