Marshall Municipal Utilities offers a rebate of $50 for installing qualifying WaterSense® labeled High Efficiency toilets when replacing an existing older unit, remodeling, or in new construction.
Toilets are by far the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30% of residential indoor water consumption. WaterSense, a program sponsored by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is helping consumers identify high-performance, water efficient toilets that can reduce water use in the home and preserve our precious water resources.
The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are certified by independent laboratory testing to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only high-efficiency toilets that complete the third-party certification process can earn the WaterSense label. WaterSense qualified toilets use 20% less water than the current standard while still providing equal or superior performance.
Replacing a 20 year old toilet with a new WaterSense qualified unit could save more than $100 per year in water and wastewater costs. So whether you are remodeling a bathroom, starting construction, or simply replacing an old, leaky toilet, installing a WaterSense labeled toilet is a high-performance, water efficient option worth considering.
