Over 30% of indoor residential water use can occur as a result of flushing the toilet. To help water customers reduce water use, the City of Tamarac offers this extraordinary program aimed at encouraging customers to replace their high water use toilets with new Ultra-Low Flow toilets. This year, replacement toilets must be approved by the EPA’s Water Sense Program, which ensures that toilets meet high performance standards.
The City of Tamarac Public Services Department is offering rebates on ultra-low flow labeled (1.28 gallon/flush or lower) Water Sense labeled toilets.
In order to qualify for the rebate:
What Are Water Sense Labeled Toilets?
Recent advancements have allowed toilets to use 20 percent less water than the current federal standard, while still providing equal or superior performance. The Water Sense label is used on toilets that are independently certified to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only toilets that complete the third-party certification process can earn the Water Sense label.
How Much Can Water Sense Labeled Toilets Save?
Over the course of your lifetime, you will likely flush the toilet nearly 140,000 times. If you replace older, existing toilets with Water Sense labeled products, it is estimated that the average household can save as much as 6,000 gallons of water per year, greener choice.
