Get a $100 rebate for a WaterSense toilet

Get $100 Rebate for Low-Flow Toilets

It’s time to tell a friend. You can get a $100 rebate for a low-flow WaterSense® toilet. You might be eligible for two! If you’re a homeowner, business, or a non-profit, you could be eligible too. Over 15,000 rebates have been issued to homeowners, businesses and nonprofits. Why shouldn’t you be next? The average family can save 20-60 percent of their water-flushing use, reducing the water bill by $150 per year. If you’re a business or non-profit, chances are you’ll save much more. 

And, when you save water, you’re actively protecting the environment and helping manage our climate change challenges. That is, reducing water use means we don’t take it from the environment and don’t use the energy to move it to and through water treatment. In short, conserving water saves energy too. 

To find out about rebates visit ConservationPays.com/apply or call 800.270.9794 and be sure to do it before you buy your toilet (or 3 or more).
