Get a rebate for a new toilet


Working with these cities, BAWSCA is offering rebates of up to $150 per toilet to residential and commercial customers who purchase and install high-efficiency toilets (HET) this year. Participating cities include:

  • Brisbane
  • Burlingame
  • Cal-Water – San Mateo/San Carlos
  • Cal-Water – South San Fancisco
  • Coastside County Water District (Coastside)
  • Daly City
  • Foster City
  • Menlo Park
  • Mid-Peninsula Water District (Belmont)
  • Millbrae
  • Redwood City
  • San Bruno

Our goal is to issue as many as 15,000 HET rebates this year and to replace the older toilets that are wasting our precious water!

HETs are modern, water-efficient toilets that are designed to use 1.3 gallons per flush (GPF) or less. Although they use up to 62% less water than older toilets, they perform well and remove waste efficiently. By replacing an old, high-water use toilet with a brand new HET, local residents and businesses can go “green” by saving a lot of water, while at the same time saving up to $150 on the cost of an HET and saving money on their water and sewer bills.

The BAWSCA HET rebate is available when an existing toilet that uses 3.5 GPF or more is replaced with a qualifying HET that uses 1.3 GPF or less.
