WaterSense Toilet Reimbursement Program

Some toilets use a lot of water — 3 ½, 5, or even 7 gallons with every flush. If you're trying to improve your home's water efficiency, replacing a toilet is a good place to start. Did you know WaterSense approved toilets use only 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf)? Here's a great reason to purchase a WaterSense toilet right now:
    1. Selecting the right toilet is easy, thanks to WaterSense — a program sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency. The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are certified by independent laboratory testing to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only toilets that complete the certification process earn the WaterSense label.
    2. The City of Tigard offers up to a $60 per toilet reimbursement (maximum of two per household) to your water bill when you replace your old water guzzling toilets with a new WaterSense model.
Save More Than Water
A WaterSense labeled toilet can save you water and money. For example, replacing a 3.5 gpf toilet with a 1.28 gpf WaterSense labeled toilet could save as much as 4,000* gallons per person per year. For a family of four, your new toilet could pay for itself in just over a year! *Based on the national estimate of five flushes per person per day.
