WASHINGTON COUNTY – You could qualify for a $75 rebate by replacing your toilet with a WaterSense-labeled model. This rebate was designed to help Washington County residents replace older toilets with water-efficient models that are certified in performance and water savings through Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program.
“Toilets are by far the main source of water use in the home,” WCWCD Water Conservation Manager Julie Breckenridge said. “In Utah, toilets account for nearly 30 percent of an average home’s indoor water consumption. Older, inefficient toilets also happen to be a major source of wasted water in many homes.”
Over the course of your lifetime, you will likely flush the toilet nearly 140,000 times. If you replace toilets manufactured prior to the year 2000 with a WaterSense labeled model, you could save 4,000 gallons per year. The EPA estimates that if a family of four replaces their home’s older toilets with WaterSense labeled ones, they will, on average, save more than $90 per year in reduced water utility bills and $2,000 over the lifetime of the toilets.
