Santa Clara County residents and businesses can receive up to $125* per toilet for replacing old, high water-use toilets that use 3.5 gallons per flush (gpf) or more, with a new high-efficiency toilet from our approved toilet list.
- Rebate amount depends on the price of the toilet (before tax). Under no circumstance can the rebate amount exceed the cost of the toilet.
What are high-efficiency (HET) and dual-flush toilets?
High-efficiency toilets use a minimum of 20% less water than standard 1.6 gpf toilets. In other words, any toilet that flushes at 1.28 gpf or less is considered high efficiency.
Dual-flush toilets save water by offering a separate, low water use flush setting for liquids (between .8-1.1 gpf) in addition to the standard 1.6 gpf for solids.
Who is eligible?
Any Santa Clara County residence or commercial property that wants to replace an old, 3.5 gpf (or more) toilet, with an approved high-efficiency toilet is eligible.

How do I apply?
To receive a rebate application, pre-approval must first be obtained. Call ConserVision Consulting at (877) 874-8479 for rebate pre-approval and to request a rebate application (an on-site inspection may be required to receive approval). Be sure to read the application requirements carefully and remember to include an original sales receipt with your application.
Tip: When you call, be prepared to give information about the toilet (make, model, year manufactured, and flush volume are some questions you may be asked to provide).
Do not purchase your replacement high efficiency toilet, or replace/recycle your old toilet, until program participation approval has been obtained.
Toilets must be installed, and completed program application submitted, within 90 days of purchased date.
How long will the rebate be available?
Rebates are available for purchasing qualified toilets until December 31, 2013, or until funding is depleted, whichever comes first.
How many toilets can I replace?
The limit is three high-efficiency or dual-flush toilets per single-family home. Multi-family homes are limited only by the number of 3.5 gpf toilets on-site.
What can I do with my old toilet?
There are a few places in the county which will recycle or dispose of old toilets. Click here to download the toilet recycler and disposal list (includes maps to their locations.) Do not recycle your old toilet until after you have been pre-approved for a rebate.
