Residential Toilet Rebates#

Toilets are typically the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30% of indoor consumption. 

Receive a $50 rebate when you replace your old, water-guzzling toilet with a WaterSense labeled model with 1.1 gallons per flush (GPF) or less and a MaP score of 600 grams or more (MaP is a measure of toilet performance). Old toilets must be recycled at approved facility.

2021 Rebates#

In 2016, Colorado became a WaterSense state, meaning that manufacturers and retailers can only sell water fixtures that are WaterSense certified. This includes toilets, which cannot exceed 1.28 GPF according to the WaterSense certification.

Utilities water customers receive a $50 rebate for exceeding the current state standard. To receive the rebate, toilets must be 1.1 GPF or less. Showerheads must be 1.5 gallons per minute (GPM) or less
