Older toilets use a lot of water – 3 ½, 5, or even 7 gallons with every flush. High Efficiency Toilets (HETs) use only 1.28 gallons per flush or less. Replacing a 3.5 gpf toilet with a 1.28 gpf WaterSense labeled toilet could save as much as 4,000* gallons per person per year. (*Based on the national estimate of 5 flushes per person per day). Apply for a $100 rebate when you replace your current water-wasting toilet with a new HET High Efficiency Toilet. Limit: 1 toilet per household. Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing.
Here are two great reasons to purchase an HET right now
1. Selecting the right toilet is easy, thanks to WaterSense – a new program sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency. The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are certified by independent laboratory testing to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only HETs that complete the certification process earn the WaterSense label.
2. For a limited time, Clackamas River Water Providers will be offering a $100 rebate when you replace a toilet that uses 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) or more with a new WaterSense labeled HET toilet. Click here to see a list of toliets that that qualify for the rebate.
