Residential Toilet Rebates

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


Rebate changes for 2018

In 2016, Colorado became a WasterSense State. This means 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 will receive a $50 rebate by exceeding the current State standard. To receive the $50 rebate, toilets MUST BE 1.1 GPF OR LESS

Showerheads must be 1.5 gallons per minute (GPM) or less.
