Replace water guzzling toilets with water efficient models and the City will pay you:

  • $60 per low flow six-litre toilet installed.
  • $75 per high efficiency toilet installed.
  • $150 per rear-exit six-litre or less toilet installed.
  • up to $150 per per six-litre or less flush-valve toilet.

Important: Not all six litre toilets and bowl types/shapes are eligible for a cash incentive. Be sure to make your selection from the City-selected list and choose the bowl types/shapes (elongated, round, ADA) shown with each model.

  • you must have existing toilets with a flush volume of 13 litres or more
  • your building must have had a municipal water meter for a minimum of two years
  • your building must be the sole destination of the water passing through the water meter
