Residential Toilet Rebates

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

  • Receive a bill credit when you replace your old water-guzzling toilet with a WaterSense labeled model 1.27 gallons per flush (GPF) or less.
  • $50 rebate for toilet of 1.27 GPF or less, including qualified dual flush fixtures.
  • $75 rebate for toilet of one GPF or less, including qualified dual flush fixtures.
  • Old toilets must be recycled at approved facility.

Important: Rebate changes for 2017
Last fall, 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 1.28GPF according to the WaterSense certification.

Utilities customers will receive a $50 rebate by exceeding the current State standard. To receive the $50 rebate, toilets MUST BE 1.27 GPF OR LESS. Previously, 1.28 GPF toilets were eligible.

To receive the $75 rebate, toilets MUST BE 1.0 GPF OR LESS. This is the same as last year.

Showerheads must be 1.9 gallons per minute or less.
