Businesses, schools and other non-residential facilities can reduce their water use — and potentially reduce their utility bills — by replacing their old toilets with water-saving, high efficiency models. Tampa Bay Water Wise is offering rebates of up to $75 per EPA WaterSense certified toilet.
Eligible commercial buildings must be built prior to 1995. Toilets that were manufactured in 1993 or earlier are eligible for the rebate, because they use 3.5 gallons per flush or more. New toilets must be EPA WaterSense certified and use only 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) or less, which will result in a significant reduction of water use compared to the older models.
More than 39% of commercial toilets in the U.S. are using flush volumes between 3 and 7 gallons of water per flush, according to the U.S. EPA. Replacing older toilets with newer, water-saving toilets can help businesses save water and also potentially save money on their utility bill.
