Residential Toilet Rebates

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


2019 Rebates

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.

Tax Information

Payments provided by utilities (including Fort Collins Utilities) to participants for the purchase or installation of water conservation measures may, in some circumstances, be considered as (partially) taxable income by the IRS. Participants or their assignees receiving incentive payments totaling $600 or more during a program year and who are not organized as a corporation will receive a 1099-MISCfrom Fort Collins Utilities in January or February of the subsequent year. Participant, or alternate payment recipient, may wish to consult a tax advisor on this matter.
