Please confirm you have all of the following

Owners of hotels, motels and other lodging facilities can save water – and money – by replacing old bathroom fixtures with efficient ones, possibly reducing bathroom water usage by as much as 50%!

What are the benefits?

Replacing old toilets with WaterSense labeled toilets that use 0.8 – 1.28 gallons per flush can add up to major water and financial savings for property owners. Be sure to consult with a plumbing professional about the appropriateness of these toilets for your building. Upgrading showerheads and aerators to high efficiency models can have surprisingly large savings – as much as replacing a toilet.

  • The rebate helps to cover some of the upfront costs.
  • Reduced water usage can lower your water and sewer bill month after month.
  • When you install products with a WaterSense label they are independently certified to ensure they meet water efficiency and quality performance standards. Find your WaterSense certified products here:
