Water Saving Rebates

Listed below are some current rebates available to residences. Visit the Saving Water Partnership for a
complete list of rebates.

Get a $75 rebate on toilets

Receive a $75 rebate for purchasing a new Premium WaterSense-labeled High-Efficiency Toilet (HET).

By replacing an old water-guzzling toilet with an efficient Premium WaterSense-labeled model, you can cut your utility bills by $50-$200 a year (depending on household size and usage habits) and reduce water waste.

Toilets are the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30 percent of residential indoor water use. WaterSense-labeled toilets use less than 1.06 gallons per flush compared to the 3.5 gallons per flush or more used by toilets installed prior to 2001.
