West Basin Free Toilet Exchange Program

The West Basin Municipal Water District (view map here)  provides Free One-Day Exchange Events to provide the public with free high-quality HETs that conserve water. The intent of this program is to encourage the public to change out their older water-wasting toilets (3 gallons and up) with new HETs that are available free-of-charge through this program.

West Basin has distributed more than 46,000 toilets since 1995 in an effort to conserve water. These HET’s (High Efficiency Toilets) are currently conserving 300 million gallons of water each year – enough to provide water to 2000 families per year.

If you live in the West Basin area, please visit the West Basin Municipal Water Districts website here.

Furthering an ongoing commitment to products that conserve water, Caroma has recently introduced the H2Zero™ Waterless Urinal in the US. The vitreous china urinal incorporates unique cartridge technology that operates with zero water for optimum performance and water conservation. Another model, the Leda urinal uses only 0.48 gallons per flush while the Cube 3 Ultra uses a remarkable 0.15 gallons per flush, or a mere pint of water. Thanks to its innovative design and technology, the Cube 3 Ultra was named one of the Top 10 green building products of 2007 by GreenSpec.

All eligible toilets are included on the list of WaterSense labeled High Efficiency toilets, which is updated regularly on EPA’s WaterSense program site. Since I became a WaterSense partner in Georgia beginning of 2008, the list of Watersense labeled toilets grew from 115 models on 11/29/07 to 249 models on 12/15/08.
