City offers rebates for efficient new toilets

Funds are still available in the city of Davis’ toilet rebate program. Residents who replace their old high-flow toilets with eligible 1.28 gallons-per-flush EPA WaterSense high-efficiency toilets may receive up to $100 for each toilet (maximum two per residence).

The $100 covers only the cost of the new toilets. Installation costs are the responsibility of the property owner.

The program is open to single-family homeowners and residents of multi-family units (condos and duplexes). The city has budgeted for 450 rebates in 2012-13, totaling $45,000. Those who replace their toilets will receive credit on their city utility bill.

Only toilets older than 1993 and that use 3.5 gallons per flush or more qualify for the rebate upon replacement. New toilets must flush 1.28 gallons or less and bear the WaterSense label.

The program is not for new construction. Purchases must be made between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. All program participants must agree to have a post-installation inspection if requested by the city. Toilets must be installed within the city of Davis, and residents must be Davis water customers.

Last year, the city saved about 3.9 million gallons of water through the toilet rebate program, city staff report.
