High-efficiency toilets protect our rivers, save water – and money. In addition to the $50 rebate, high-efficiency (low flow)toilets reduce your water use, which means you’ll save money on your monthly water bills. Replace your old water-guzzling toilet with a WaterSense-labelled toilet and purchase to be eligible.
For home, condo, trailer, and townhouse owners and tenants
One of the easiest plumbing home improvements you can do is replacing your old toilet. If you’re interested in doing some home renovations to your bathroom, we recommend switching from your old toilet to a Water-Sense labelled, high efficiency toilet.
When you make the switch, you could be eligible for a $50 rebate
In addition to our $50 subsidy, these toilets use less water which means you’ll see savings of up to $100 or more on your water bill every year.
Recent advancements have allowed toilets to use 1.28 gallons per flush or less while still providing equal or superior performance. This is 20 percent less water than the current federal standard of 1.6 gallons per flush. The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are independently certified to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only water–saving toilets that complete the certification process can earn the WaterSense label.
By replacing old, inefficient toilets with WaterSense labeled models, the average family can reduce water used for toilets by 20 to 60 percent—that’s nearly 13,000 gallons of water savings for your home every year! They could also save more than $110 per year in water costs, and $2,200 over the lifetime of the toilets.
Nationally, if all old, inefficient toilets in the United States were replaced with WaterSense labeled models, we could save 520 billion gallons of water per year, or the amount of water that flows over Niagara Falls in about 12 days.
