Toilet Retrofit Rebate Program


 As part of its water conservation program, the City of Titusville offers an incentive to its single-family, residential water customers to encourage them to replace old high-volume toilets with high efficiency toilets (HETs). The Toilet Retrofit Rebate Program offers a $50 rebate to Titusville residential water customers who change out old (pre-1994) high-volume toilets for WaterSense certified high-efficiency toilets (flush rate of 1.28 gallons or less) in accordance with the program guidelines. When you replace older high-volume toilets with more efficient toilets, you can significantly reduce your water usage. (For water savings, click here.) Reduced water use translates into increased savings on your water bill. Long-term effects include a reduction in the cost of water and wastewater treatment and increased effective capacity for treatment facilities.

 Toilets comprise the largest category of indoor water use, averaging from over one-third to almost one-half of total indoor use.

   In 1992 federal law (Energy Policy Act of 1992) mandated that all toilets sold in the United States use an average of 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) or less.

    Toilets made during the period 1980 to 1992 use 3.5 gpf or more. Toilets made prior to 1980 use 5 to 7 gpf or more. The oldest toilets can use more than 8 gpf
.

Many different manufacturers produce toilets that have been tested under the EPA's criteria for WaterSense toilets. Eligible HETs are listed on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website.

Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are given as a credit on your water bill. The Toilet Retrofit Rebate Program runs each fiscal year from October 1 through September 1 or until funds are depleted. To be eligible, toilets cannot be purchased prior to the October 1 start date for that fiscal year. Toilets must be purchased during the same fiscal year that the rebate is available. All paperwork must be submitted prior to the close of the program.
