You know that random “caaaaaaaaaah” that your toilet does now and again, even when it’s not in use? That’s so not good. Many loos in homes randomly cycle and in doing so, waste buckets of water each year. Even if you’ve never heard this cry for help from your older toilet, there’s a good chance it’s using more water each flush than it should or needs to.
With this in mind, many cities are encouraging people to replace their older (but still functioning toilets) with one that’s more green, eco-friendly and easier on your water bill and the motivation is through municipal toilet rebate programs. They differ from city to city, but the gist is that if you buy a Low Flow or High Efficiency Toilet (HET) you’ll get a bit of coin back. It’s cash from your can! Pay from the potty! Scrilla from the shi… well, you get the picture.
To find out the deal in your city, we suggest checking out ToiletRebate.com or Active Rain. Together, they hold the most comprehensive listings of municipal toilet rebate programs in the country. If you don’t see your city listed, consider searching around online or visiting your local home improvement store – most have information on this money-saving program if it’s in effect in the town you live in.
