Atlanta Water Rebates
Looking for an easy way to save water and money in your home? It probably comes as no surprise that the easiest way to do that is by replacing your toilets.
If your house was built before 1993 and you have never changed out your toilet, it is sending between 3.5 and 5 gallons of water down the drain every time you flush. At 3.5 gallons per flush, the average toilet is flushed about 5 times per day, which equates to 17.5 gallons per day, 122.5 gallons per week, or 6.370 gallons per year.
Today’s more efficient toilets operate at 1.28 gallons per flush or lower. By replacing your existing toilets with one that is a WaterSense certified toilet, you’ll reduce the amount of water used to 6.4 gallons per day, or 2,330 gallons per year.
The savings are significant.
What’s even better is it may qualify for a rebate to change the toilets out in your home.
According to the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Management District, the average residential home in Atlanta uses about 24 percent of its water supply for use in the toilet. By replacing it now, you can easily make your home better for the environment, and save money while doing it too.
Plus if you act now, you may even qualify for a rebate.
Qualifications are simple. Own a residential home built in 1993 or earlier. Purchase an approved toilet to replace an existing one that uses greater than 1.6 gallons per flush. Only approved WaterSense labeled toilets using 1.28 gallons per flush or less qualify. You can replace up to two toilets per household.
You may have to have an installation verification to ensure you have the proper toilets installed, but that’s it. (And that’s what we’re here for.) We can ensure you have everything you need in place to qualify.
