What's Up With Low-Flow WaterSense Toilet Rebates? 

Water-saving toilets are environmentally friendly because they require up to 60% less water than older toilets to operate. They're also budget-friendly; according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), they can save homeowners more than $140 each year in water bills. Toilet rebates can make them even more budget-friendly.

What Does WaterSense Mean? 

The WaterSense label identifies plumbing fixtures like toilets, sinks, and showerheads as meeting stringent criteria for water-saving features. These fixtures must:

  1. Reduce water use by at least 20%
  2. Conserve energy
  3. Perform as well as (or better than) their replaced, non-conserving counterparts

Manufacturers that partner with the EPA and independent certification programs can use the WaterSense seal on their product packaging and marketing campaigns, and their customers can benefit from programs that offer rebates and incentives for purchasing WaterSense fixtures.

Who Offers WaterSense Toilet Rebates? 

Rebates are typically offered by state or municipal agencies, and in some cases, you can benefit from multiple programs. Ready to learn how to get your low-flow toilet rebate? Read on.
