Nearly half of the respondents indicated in a recent poll that they are interested in upgrading to a more water-efficient toilet. On May 26-28, there is a Water-Efficient Products Sales Tax Holiday, which can make upgrades more affordable for water-efficient and water-conserving products. During the holiday period, any product that displays a WaterSense label or logo can be purchased tax-free.
Municipalities also often offer rebates on WaterSense products. The EPA has a WaterSense Rebate Finder.
WaterSense is a partnership program by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that helps consumers make smarter and more economical water choices and maintain high environmental standards. Products and services that have earned the WaterSense label have been certified to be at least 20 percent more efficient without sacrificing performance.
