It’s easy to save water — and money — with every flush by upgrading to a water-saving toilet. With rebates up to $100, much of the cost of your new toilet is covered.
If you have a toilet that uses 3.5 gallons or more per flush and was manufactured in 1993 or earlier, you may be eligible for a rebate to replace it with a high efficiency EPA WaterSense certified toilet. These water-saving toilets only use 1.28 gallons per flush, significantly reducing how much water you use, and are widely available.
Toilets account for roughly 30% of a home’s indoor water use, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Remove the lid from the top of the tank. Look closely just above the water line for the toilet’s manufacture date, or look on the lid. You may need to use a flashlight. The date may be an ink stamp, or imprint or etching in the wall. If the date is 1993 or earlier, this toilet will qualify for a rebate. If there is no clear date stamp, take a photo of the numbers and letters that are stamped inside the tank and lid, and take a photo of the entire toilet. Toilets manufactured in 1994 or later — which are not eligible — usually have an ink stamp stating “1.6 gpf” on the toilet bowl. A 1.6 gpf (gallons per flush) toilet is not eligible for the rebate.
