The city of Fort Collins is offering residents a chance to double their rebate up to $70 through July for replacing old toilets.
Toilets are typically the main source of water use in the home-accounting for nearly 30 percent of indoor consumption. Pre-1994 toilets use 3.5 to 7 gallons per flush, while newer WaterSense models use as little as 1.28 gallons per flush. Bathrooms that haven’t been updated in the past 15 years can achieve a savings of thousands of gallons of water a year by installing high-efficiency toilets. Look for toilets that score 500 or more on the MaP (Maximum Performance) toilet testing (PDF 245KB).
Residents can receive a $35 rebate (double to $70 through July) when they replace old water-guzzling toilets with a qualified WaterSense labeled model, and an additional $15 for recycling your old toilet.
