The Southwest Florida Water Management District and the City of St. Petersburg are offering water customers rebates of up to $100 for replacing their high-flow toilets.
Replacing older high-flow toilets with water-efficient toilets through this project is anticipated to save an estimated 24,300 gallons per day.
Customers must be potable water residential or nonresidential users of St. Petersburg and meet other requirements to be eligible for the rebates. The toilet being replaced must be made and installed before 1995 and use approximately 3.5 gallons of water or more per flush. Customers must call or email to check eligibility and receive an application prior to toilet purchase.
Educational information also will be provided to customers about water conservation, which will include leak detection and the proper selection of parts for water-saving toilets.
The total cost of this project is $150,000. It is being funded by the District in cooperation with the City of St. Petersburg.
