Toilet Rebate Information
Marietta supports water conservation by offering a rebate to encourage the installation of more efficient toilets. The biggest water user in the home is the toilet, and more than 45 percent of indoor water used is flushed down the drain every day.
Marietta Water's toilet rebate program provides an incentive for customers in homes built before1993 to retrofit older high-flow toilets with new low-flow technology. Customers are eligible to receive rebates for up to three toilets per home for purchases made beginning Sept. 20, 2007, the date the drought response level four was effective.
The program has one rebate option, a $100 rebate for high-efficiency toilets. These toilets use 1.28 gallons per flush and have received the WaterSense labeling certification. WaterSense is the Environmental Protection Agency's labeling program for water efficiency. It is modeled after the Energy Star program, and WaterSense toilets will have the logo on the product.
To receive the rebate, Marietta Water customers should buy a toilet from the approved list (see below) and submit the original receipt along with an application to the Marietta Water marketing office. After verifying the eligibility of the toilet and the age of the home, the rebate will be applied as a credit to the customer's water bill.
Program funds have been capped, and rebates will be made on a first-come, first-served basis depending on the availability of funds.
