$40 Multi-Family High Efficiency Toilet Retrofit Rebate
If replacing a 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) toilet with a 0.8 gpf WaterSense certified toilet
If your existing toilets are rated as 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf), you are eligible for the $40 rebate when installing any WaterSense certified 0.8 gpf toilet or less.
Please confirm you have all of the following
Owners of apartments buildings and multi-family properties can save water — and money — by replacing old toilets with high efficiency toilets.
Since 1994, the plumbing code has allowed for the production of toilets that use 1.6 gallons of water per flush (GPF), but WaterSense certified toilets use 0.8 – 1.28 GPF. If you want to upgrade to a WaterSense certified toilet, this rebate is for you.
What are the benefits?
Toilets can account for 30% of indoor water use, and old, leaky toilets can account for much more! Replacing old toilets with WaterSense certified 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.
The rebate helps to cover some of the upfront costs.
Reduced water usage can lower your water and sewer bill month after month.
Products that earn the WaterSense label are independently certified to ensure they meet water efficiency and quality performance standards.
For $40 Toilet Rebate, the toilet installed must be a WaterSense certified toilet using 0.8 gallons per flush or less, and the toilet replaced must use at least 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf). The gpf rating is usually printed on the toilet bowl or tank.
