Toilet Rebates

Double Rebates on Toilets

Fort Collins Utilities is offering double rebates on qualified purchases from Sept. 1-Dec. 31, 2014.

  • Receive a $150 bill credit (regularly $75) when you replace your old water-guzzling toilet with a qualified MaP Premium labeled model.
  • Receive a $100 bill credit (regularly $50) for a WaterSense model.
  • Old toilets must be recycled at approved facilities.
  • When purchasing a WaterSense toilet, look for models that score 500 or more on the MaP (Maximum Performance) toilet testing (PDF 245KB). MaP Premium toilets are ultra-efficient models that should also score 500 or higher.
  • To receive a double rebate, purchase a qualifying toilet from Sept. 1-Dec. 31, 2014. Applications must be submitted by Jan. 15, 2015. Allow up to eight weeks for bill processing.
  • Toilets are typically the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30 percent of indoor consumption.
