WaterSense Toilet Program
Frequently Asked Questions

How much is the rebate?
The rebate is $75 per toilet, or the pre-tax purchase price of the toilet, whichever is less. The
rebate applies only to the cost of the toilet, not additional parts, labor or tax. You can apply for
one rebate per home. If you applied for a rebate in 2010 or 2011, you no longer qualify.

Who qualifies for the rebate?
Single family homes (house or condominium) and multifamily buildings (four or fewer units)
served by a water district or water association are eligible (no private wells). The home must be
located in Snohomish County, WA—excluding Hat Island and the following zip codes: 98077,
98241, 98251 and 98292.

Which toilets qualify for the rebate?
Any toilet with the EPA WaterSense label qualifies for a rebate. For a list of
WaterSense labeled toilets go to http://www.epa.gov/WaterSense/products/toilets.html

Who makes WaterSense toilets?
WaterSense toilets are high-efficiency toilets (HET). HETs use no more than 1.28
gallons per flush on average, or 20 percent less than the current plumbing standard.
All WaterSense labeled toilets have been rigorously tested by independent laboratories and
must reliably flush a minimum of 350 grams of solid.

Who makes WaterSense toilets and where are they sold?
All major toilet manufacturers produce WaterSense labeled models and all hardware and
bathroom supply stores carry several models.

What documentation must I provide to receive a rebate?
You must complete and sign the application form and attach a copy of the sales receipt. If the
receipt does not show the brand and model of the toilet, you must provide other
documentation, such as the WaterSense label and model number from the toilet packaging.

When must I apply?
You must submit your application within 60 days after purchasing the toilet. Applications
received beyond 60 days of the purchase will not be processed. How long does the program last?
This program is effective January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012, or until the program funds are
exhausted. Rebates are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

How long does it take to get my rebate?
You should receive your rebate check within 4 to 6 weeks after receipt of the application.

How much water do WaterSense toilets save?
Toilets sold in Washington before 1994 use at least 3.5 gallons per flush. Since 1994, toilets are
required to use a maximum of 1.6 gallons per flush. Replacing a pre-1994 toilet will save a
typical household about 10,000 gallons of water a year. Replacing a newer toilet will save
about 1,400 gallons of water per year.

Caroma’s 2011 “One Flush Makes a Difference” Promotion – 50% off MSRP

http://www.caromausa.com/2011/02/09/2011_one_flush_makes_a_difference_50_off_promotion.php

2011 “One Flush Makes a Difference” Promotion

Caroma’s 50% off promotion is back! Last year’s promotion was a huge success and this year we’re once again inviting customers to receive a coupon for 50% off the list price of any qualifying Caroma toilet or sink at participating reseller locations*. The 2011 “One Flush Makes a Difference” promotion honors Earth Month and helps bring awareness to all that Caroma does to promote water-efficiency. You have until June 30, 2011 to participate in the promotion and receive 50 % off the list price of any qualifying Caroma toilet or sink.

Can One Flush Make a Difference?

Absolutely! In the United States federal law requires that new toilets must not exceed 1.6 gallons of water per flush (gpf). The high efficiency toilet (HET) category has set a standard in North America with 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf). Caroma’s HET’s go even further: The average flush of the toilets in Caroma’s standard collection is 1.06 gpf, while the Smart Series features an industry breaking 0.96 gpf!

Just think. If just one person uses a high efficiency toilet for one year then they will save around 330 gallons of water (based on the average three times a day flush). Further, if your toilet is from the 1980s, when new toilets were regulated to use 3.5 gallons of water per flush, you would save 2,410 gallons per year by switching to a HET toilet!

The numbers simply add up. If five people replaced their old 3.5 gpf toilet, over 12,000 gallons of water or the equivalent of 300 20-minute showers would be saved. One flush does make a difference, but if 2,000 people with new toilets switched to a HET toilet, in one year you would be able to fill an Olympic sized swimming pool with the water saved: 660,430 gallons! If 822 people using the old 3.5 gpf toilets changed to a Caroma HET toilet, we could fill an Olympic pool with the water saved!

Start Saving. Now you can save money and water at the same time with Caroma’s “One Flush Makes a Difference” 50% off promotion.

*Available through participating resellers only.
Excludes Invisi™ Series, Somerton Smart 270, Sydney Smart 305 One-Piece, Cube Ultra, H2 Zero Waterless and Flow Showerheads. Shipping not included. 50% discount is based off of the list price. Promotion runs from February 14, 2011 through June 30, 2011. Offer available to all North American residents (Canada exempt). Coupon must be present at time of purchase.

Dekalb County, GA approves Water Rate Hike

The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners approved an 11 percent water and sewer rate increase to pay for nearly $1.4 billion in water and sewer system upgrades in the County.

If your home was built prior to 1993 and you haven’t upgraded your toilets yet, you are wasting a significant amount of water and money. By upgrading an old, inefficient toilet to a WaterSense labeled High Efficiency Dual Flush toilet you can reduce your water usage between 40% and 70%. On top of the water savings achieved by reduced water usage, you will also receive a $100 rebate from Dekalb County Watershed (if you meet the requirements) – details can be found here. If you opt for a Caroma Dual Flush toilet, you can also retire your plunger, as these toilets virtually do not clog (want proof? view this flushing video from ecoTransitions).

Lauenstein: New Year’s Resolution for 2011: Drop 10 Percent – Georgetown, MA – Georgetown Record

Lauenstein: New Year’s Resolution for 2011: Drop 10 Percent – Georgetown, MA – Georgetown Record.

Do you know your water-use efficiency? The Massachusetts conservation standard is 65 gallons per person per day (8.7 cubic feet per day), which is similar to the annual average in Georgetown. Yet some residents use as little as 20 gallons per person per day (2.7 cubic feet per person per day), saving money on their water and energy bills, helping the community live and grow within its water supply capacity, and benefiting the local environment.

Compute your water use efficiency from your water bill. It’s easy using the daily water usage worksheet on the Water Department page of the Georgetown website, georgetownma.gov. It’s in the “Conserving Water” folder under “Important Links & Information.”

Then resolve to drop your water use by 10 percent in 2011. Here’s how:

· Replace the faucet aerator in your kitchen sink with a 1.0 or 1.5 gallon-per-minute aerator, and in bathroom sinks, install 0.5 or 1.0 gpm aerators. Typical aerators use two gpm or more. Replacing them can save as much as 500 to 3,000 gallons per year. They only cost about $2, and are easy to install. Videos on how to change aerators are available online at YouTube.com.

· Get an efficient showerhead that feels like more flow but actually uses less water and energy. Check out the showerheads listed at Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense website, epa.gov/watersense, and read customer reviews at Amazon.com.

· Install efficient toilets. Toilet flushing is the No. 1 water use indoors. Call the Georgetown Water Department at 978-352-5750 to get a rebate of up to $200 on a modern high-efficiency toilet listed at the EPA WaterSense website. Flushing power data is available online at cuwcc.org/MaPTesting.aspx.

· Convert your old toilet to dual flush, which conserves water by using less water to flush liquid waste. Conversion kits are available for less than $25, and installation requires no tools. Check out the online videos at YouTube.com.

· When the time comes for a new washing machine, choose an energy- and water-efficient model from the EnergyStar list at energystar.gov/index.cfm?fuseaction=clotheswash.display_products.html.

San Marcos, TX offers Multi-Family Toilet Rebate Program

http://www.ci.san-marcos.tx.us/departments/www/MFToiletRebateProgram.htm

Jan Klein, Conservation Coordinator

(512) 393-8310

 

Multi-Family Toilet Rebate Program

Almost a third of the water used in San Marcos is used by residents living in multi-family communities such as apartment complexes, condominiums, and townhomes.  Toilets are generally the highest user of water in multi-family facilities, especially those built before efficient plumbing standards went into effect in 1993.

Older toilets commonly use 3.5 gallons of water per flush or more.  Low flow models use only 1.6 gallons per flush, and high efficiency toilets (HETs) use only 1.3 gallons per flush.  Replacing your old toilets with new high efficiency models can result in BIG water savings.  And big water savings mean BIG utility bill savings for you and your tenants.

How much can I save?
More than you think!  And you could save even more if you take advantage of our FREE showerhead and aerator replacement too!

Caroma, Moen Recognized By WaterSense – Industry News – PMEngineer

Caroma, Moen Recognized By WaterSense – Industry News – PMEngineer.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program presented high-efficiency, dual-flush toilet manufacturer Caroma with its inaugural Excellence Award for Caroma’s number of WaterSense-labeled products in the marketplace — all 47 of its floor-mount, dual-flush toilet models, more than any company in the industry. The company’s award-winning Smartflush toilets surpass both the U.S. federal requirement of no more than 1.6 gpf for new toilets, as well as the North American high-efficiency toilet standard of 1.28 gpf. 

The EPA made the presentation at the WaterSmart Innovations Conference in Las Vegas during its second annual WaterSense awards banquet Oct. 6, co-hosted with the Alliance for Water Efficiency. 

“We are deeply honored and grateful to receive an Excellence Award, and we are proud to be a leader in the effort to preserve the world’s most valuable resource,” said Derek Kirkpatrick, Caroma North America’s general manager. “Caroma has been a tireless supporter of sustainable technologies for more than 70 years, and we look forward to strengthening our commitment to changing the way bathroom water is used and conserved.”

 

 

WaterSense Partners Of The Year Named

The EPA also named four Partners of the Year for their exceptional efforts in promoting water efficiency and WaterSense-labeled products. The WaterSense program’s more than 2,000 partners help save water for future generations by promoting water efficiency and WaterSense-labeled products. 

“These partners contributed significantly to our efforts to make WaterSense-labeled products a household fixture in 2009,” said Peter S. Silva, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Water. “They also helped consumers who purchased these products save 36 billion gallons of water and more than $267 million in water and sewer bills in 2009.”

The partners of the year are: 

  • Manufacturer Partner of the Year: Moen. Bathroom fixture manufacturer Moen earned the WaterSense label for all of its 267 bathroom faucet fixtures, ensuring availability of water-saving faucets for consumers at every price point, and garnered significant national media attention for WaterSense.


  • Promotional Partner of the Year: Cascade Water Alliance, King County, Wash. Cascade Water Alliance collaborated with retailers and plumbers to promote water efficiency in the Puget Sound region and rebated more than 3,000 WaterSense-labeled toilets for households and local businesses.


  • Retailer Partner of the Year: Lowe’s Cos. Big-box retailer Lowe’s launched a “Build Your Savings” program to help customers select products that save energy, water and money, winning WaterSense Retail/Distributor Partner of the Year for the second year in a row.


  • Irrigation Partner of the Year: Judy Benson of Clear Water Products and Services (Clear Water PSI), Florida.Benson educated businesses and consumers on outdoor water efficiency and encouraged other irrigation professionals in the central Florida region to partner with WaterSense.

    Old Toilet Information

    For verification of eligibility, and statistical and monitoring purposes, each applicant is required to provide the measurements of the old toilet’s tank.

    THE FOLLOWING MEASUREMENTS MUST BE RECORDED ON THE APPLICATION!

    Lift the tank lid and take three measurements, in inches, from inside the tank:

    A. Depth of the Water Level (from the bottom of the tank to the water line)

    B. Length (inside the tank, left to right)

    C. Width (inside the tank,  front to back)

    To determine how many gallons per flush (GPF) your toilet uses, multiply the three measurements together and divide by 231.

    If you currently have a water-displacing item within your tank, measure the water level with the item in place and make a note of having a water displacer in the comment section of the rebate application.
    GPF = (Length x Width x Water Depth)/231

    Water Conservation Rebate Programs

    The City of Round Rock’s Water Conservation Program has begun two new rebate programs for direct Round Rock water customers.  Both are pilot programs and will be available until September 30, 2010 or until funding is expended, whichever happens first.  These programs are intended to promote customer awareness of their water use and the efficient use of water. 

    Efficient Irrigation Rebate

    rain shut-off deviceThis program is applicable to existing, automatic irrigation systems only.  The rebate is available to commercial, multifamily and residential properties that are direct Round Rock water customers.  The property must have a free irrigation system evaluation performed by City staff prior to the installation of any new equipment.  The rebate is approximately 50% of the cost of specific system upgrades that are approved by City Water Conservation staff.  Find the complete program details and the application here.

    Efficient Toilet Rebate

    This program is available to single-family residential customers only during the pilot period.  Applicants must be a direct water customer of the City of Round Rock and the property must have been built prior to January 1, 1996 to qualify.  New toilets must be selected off of the EPA’s WaterSense toilet list, found at http://www.epa.gov/watersense/products/toilets.html .  The rebate amount will be up to $100 per toilet and up to two toilets per residence.  Submit a completed rebate application form after the new toilet(s) are installed.

    Wise water use is especially important because our City’s population continues to grow, while our water supply does not.  The cost of water will continue to increase, rain events are unpredictable, and the next drought is somewhere in the future, so it is important for us to use this precious resource as efficiently as possible, so as to delay any mandatory water use restrictions as long as possible.

    For questions about either program or to have an application sent to you, contact Jessica Woods at 671-2872 or jwoods@round-rock.tx.us

    City of Cocoa toilet rebate program eligibility requirements:

    1. Rebates are available on a first come first served basis and are available only until the budgeted rebate funds for the current fiscal year (Oct. 2009 – Sept. 2010) are depleted. The City does not guarantee a rebate if rebate monies have been depleted.

    2. Applicant must have a water account in his/her name and must be a City of Cocoa water Customer.

    3. The toilet must be installed at the property that receives a water bill from the City of Cocoa.

    4. A maximum of two rebates per address will be allowed during the liftime of the program.

    5. Rebate is offered only for replacement of existing 3.5 to 7 gallon per flush (GPF) toilets; it does not apply to new construction , room additions or replacement of a 1.6 GPF or lower toilet.

    6. Removed toilet cannot be reused and must be disposed of.

    7. Replacement ultra low flow toilet must be purchased in the current fiscal year (Oct. 2009 — Sept. 2010).

    8. It is the customer’s reponsibility to ensure proper installation. The City of Cocoa does not recommend any brand or manufacture of toilet. You are free to purchase any toilet that meets the 1.6 or 1.28 GPF standards. Prior to purchase it is recommended you get estimates for the installation cost.

    9. Upon receipt and review of the COMPLETED REBATE FORM, ORIGINAL RECEIPT, UPC BAR CODE AND GPF WORDING FROM EACH TOILET BOX FOR EACH REBATE, if approved, a credit will be applied to the water account that is on this application. INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL BE RETURNED.

    Toilets account for 30% of the water usage in the home. Older homes can have a toilet that uses up to 5-7 gallons per flush.

    An average household with four residents flushes the toilet 24 times a day which uses 52,560 gallons a year. When the water-guzzling toielt (6 gallons per flush) is replaced with a 1.6 gallon per flush toilet, that same household of four uses 14,016 gallons of water a year. That is a savings of 38,544 gallons of water per year.
