Non-Residential Half-Gallon Urinal

Get rebates for making Water Wise choices.

Up to $75 rebate available.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that a typical office building has the potential to reduce its water use by 26,000 gallons per year simply by switching to half-gallon urinals. In order to conserve potable water while reducing costs to the consumer, Tampa Bay Water Wise is offering rebates to businesses who replace their existing urinals, using at least 1.0 gallons per flush (gpf), with EPA WaterSense certified urinals using 0.5 gpf. Products that earn the WaterSense label are independently certified to ensure they meet water efficiency and quality performance standards.

To be eligible, customers must replace a toilet that was manufactured in 1993 or earlier, because these older models use 3.5 gallons per flush or more. These older models may have been installed in homes that were built in 1994 or earlier. See below for details about how to determine the date of manufacture of a toilet. For more information regarding the rules, restrictions, and requirements, please review the Frequently Asked Questions section below, and the program’s Terms and Conditions.

General Requirements

  • Applicant must be an existing potable water utility customer of the city of St. Petersburg, city of New Port Richey, Pinellas County, Pasco County or Hillsborough County.
  • The toilet replaced must use 3.5 gallons per flush or more. Toilets that were manufactured in 1993 or earlier are eligible. To check the date of manufacture, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions below.
  • Eligible multi-family living units – such as apartments, townhomes, and condos – eligible non-residential buildings must have been built in 1994 or earlier.
  • Urinals being replaced must be conventional models with flush volumes rated 1.0 gpf or more.
  • New fixtures installed must be matching valve and fixture combinations with a combined rating of 0.5 gpf or less.
  • Applications must be submitted within 90 days of purchase.

Documentation Requirements

  • A photograph of each old toilet you wish to replace—clearly showing the year of manufacture or the gallons per flush (gpf)—is required. The number of photos you need to submit is outlined in the chart below. If you are replacing 50 or more toilets you need to call (727) 791-2323 for a required and free pre-installation inspection.

    # of Toilets Replaced  # Photos required

    As an alternative, or if you are unable to provide the photographs, you may have both your old and newly installed urinals inspected. The number of old urinals you have to keep is the same as the number of photos you would have submitted. The old urinals will be inspected at the same time as your newly installed urinals. After a successful inspection, a rebate will be issued if all terms of the rebate are met.
