Toilet Information

Additional toilet resources

Does Valley Water offer high-efficiency toilet rebates?
No. Even though we no longer offer a rebate for efficient toilets (ended in 2016 after nearly 25 years), the resources on this page should help eliminate much of the guess work in what to measure before you chose an efficient toilet, the criteria to look for when upgrading your toilet, and how to properly dispose of your old toilet.

An overview of efficient toilets to help you commit to upgrading your toilets to save water.

What are the most efficient toilets on the market? [XLS or PDF]

Premium high-efficiency toilets (HETs) flush effectively with 1.1 gallons per flush or less and can be found at select retailers [XLSX] as well as other retailers since this list was created and online (No double-flushing is required for these toilets in standardized conditions). Lists of flushometer valve and bowl combinations are also available [XLSX or pdf].

To easily search for efficient toilets, use the search feature to select for “MaP PREMIUM Rated” toilets as well as any other features you may need (a screenshot of the search fields is provided below). Maximum Performance provides additional resources and assistance to help you enter the criteria and features that YOU are looking for in a new toilet before going to the store.
