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

received beyond 60 days of the purchase will not be processed. How long does the program last?

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.

The intent of this rebate is to encourage residents to upgrade their toilets with high-efficiency units in their homes. Older traditional toilets use as much as seven (7) gallons per flush. High-efficiency toilets (HETs) are rated 1.3 gallons per flush or less. Improved technology has basically eliminated the days of double flushing. HETs come in many styles and sizes to fit your home decor.

1. A City of Odessa water and sewer customer (not trash only). Must have an individual account directly billed by the City of Odessa.
2. Only residential customers are eligible.
3. A copy of the purchase receipt is required before the before application can be processed.
4. All homes built in 1994 to present are ineligible.
5. Toilet being replaced must be 3.5 gallons per flush (or higher).
6. HETs must be purchased on or after May 15, 2012.
7. New toilet must be EPA Water Sense labeled. (See EPA WaterSense web site for a complete list of eligible toilets at http://www.epa.gov/WaterSense).
8. The rebate amount may not exceed the amount paid for the toilet before tax.
9. Maximum of three toilet rebates per household.

How To Get Your Rebate

To request an application, complete the online REBATE APPLICATION REQUEST FORM or call (432) 335-3204. Once your name, address, phone number, and account number have been verified, an official application will be sent through the mail. After installing the high-efficiency toilet, complete the application and submit it along with a copy of your purchase receipt to the City of Odessa Billing and Collections Department. City staff will review your application, purchase receipt and schedule an inspection, if necessary.

NOTE: No inspection is needed if a licensed contractor or plumber installs the toilet. If an inspection is necessary you will be contacted to schedule an appointment.

After the inspection (if necessary) and approval of your application, $75 will be credited to your City of Odessa utility account within 1-2 billing cycles.

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.

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!

Conserving water in our semi-arid region is vitally important to us all. Taking a few small actions to use water efficiently inside and out can make a big difference. All toilets are not created equally — some are thrifty while others are water-guzzlers.

 All toilets are not created equally — some are thrifty while others are water-guzzlers.

Pre-1994 toilets use 3.5 to 7 gallons per flush (gpf). Since toilets can last 25 years or more, many high water-using models are still in use. To help get those toilets out of service, Fort Collins Utilities is offering a rebate of up to $50 to install high-efficiency toilets.

Rebates are available for Utilities residential water customers who purchase qualified WaterSense labeled toilets that use 1.28 gpf or less. WaterSense products are certified by an independent laboratory to meet rigorous criteria for performance. You’ll receive a $35 rebate for the purchase of a qualifying toilet and an additional $15 for recycling your old one.

I know that some cities already offer a toilet rebate when a consumer purchases an EPA approved WaterSense fixture but this is the first that I know of for Broward County.

Considering that a toilet accounts for nearly 30 percent of residential indoor water consumption, it is critical to conserve our precious resource, water. If you are considering remodeling a bathroom, building a new home or need to replace an old, leaking toilet this will be the perfect opportunity to save both water and money.

The $100 toilet rebate is available for residents who have an active account with Broward County. Conditions for the rebate include buying and installing an EPA-approved WaterSense toilet. Per the application materials located on their website, customers must present a Toilet Rebate Program Application (available on online or in their office). Limit is maximum two toilet credits per residential unit.

Once you have submitted the completed application package and receipt for the toilet(s), a $100 credit per toilet will be applied to your account.

For more information visit their website at: www.broward.org/waterservices  or call 954.831.3250.

Toilets account for approx. 30% of water used indoors. By installing a Dual Flush toilet you can save approx. 40% of water being flushed down the toilet, compared to a standard, modern 1.6 gpf (gallons per flush) model. If your toilet has been installed prior to 1994, you are using 3.5 gallons or more each single flush. The water savings you can achieve by upgrading to a Dual Flush toilet are substantial. By reducing your water usage, you are also reducing the cost of your water bill!!

If you are serious about saving water, want a toilet that really works and is affordable, I highly recommend installing a Caroma Dual Flush toilet. They offer a patented dual flush technology consisting of a 0.8 Gal flush for liquid waste and a 1.6 Gal flush for solids. On an average of 5 uses a day (4 liquid/ 1 solid) a Caroma Dual Flush toilet uses an average of 0.96 gallons per flush.  The new Sydney Smart uses only 1.28 and 0.8 gpf, that is an average of 0.89 gallons per flush. This is the lowest water consumption of any toilet available in the US. Caroma, an Australian company set the standard by giving the world its first successful two button dual flush system in the 1980’s and has since perfected the technology. With a full 3.5″ trap way, these toilets virtually never clog. All 47 floor mounted models are on the list of WaterSense labeled HET’s (High Efficiency toilets) http://www.epa.gov/watersense/pp/find_het.htm  and qualify for the various toilet rebate programs available in the US. They are available in round, elongated, regular height and ADA compliant “chair height” in white and biscuit. Please visit my blog https://pottygirl.wordpress.com/2008/08/01/what-you-should-know-about-toilets/

to learn more or go to http://www.caromausa.com to see where you can find Caroma toilets locally. Visit http://www.ecotransitions.com/howto.asp  to see how we flush potatoes with 0.8 gallons of water, meant for liquids only. Best regards, Andrea Paulinelli
