Low Flow Toilets Save San Diego Water Resources

Toilets may be a humorous topic in general, but the waste of millions gallons of drinking water is no laughing matter. According to the EPA, an estimated 4.8 billion gallons are flushed down the toilet every day. The American Water Works Association states that the average household uses 20-28 gallons per day to flush the toilet. In 1992, The Energy Policy Act of 1992 made progress in reducing water waste by mandating that all new toilets produced for residential conform to a 1.6 gallon-per-flush (gpf) standard, moving away from conventional 3.5 – 5 gpf models.

Real water waste isn’t funny.

Locally, San Diego’s Water Conservation Program offers vouchers for replacement of 3.5 gpf or higher toilets with water-conserving models. You can save as much as $165 by using a voucher when you replace your clunker toilet with a water-conscious version. And don’t forget the $100 rebate we provide through our “cash for clunkers” program.

The toilet rebate program offers client a $100 rebate on the purchase of any new water efficient low-flow toilet. The program also includes the removal and recycling of the old toilet at no charge.
