$50 per toilet up to 3 toilets per home
Toilets account for up to 27% of your household supply every year. As a result, your toilet is by far your home's largest water user. The Federal government now mandates that new toilets use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush, but older toilets can use two to three times that much. Many are 3.5 gallons per flush (gpf) or more.
Keep in mind however that newer efficient toilets will use more water if you don't periodically check for leaks and maintain them. Leaks account for 14% of water consumption inside the home. A leaky toilet can waste about 200 gallons of water every day. Tips for Finding Leaks
When buying a new toilet, look for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense label. To receive the label, toilets must be independently tested to show that they use, at most, 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf). Dual-flush toilets, those that have a full-flush mode for solids and a reduced-flush mode for liquids, use about 1.6 gpf and .8 gpf respectively.

The Toilet Rebate program is available to all City of Gillette residential utility customers who currently have a toilet manufactured prior to 1995 that uses 3.5 gallons per flush or more. Customers must meet the following guidelines in order to qualify for the Rebate program:
• Toilets must be installed on residential properties receiving water from the City of Gillette.
• Rebate amount is $50.00. A maximum rebate of $150.00 per household is allowed if multiple toilets are installed. The rebate covers only the purchase cost of the tank and bowl and does not include installation, tax or additional supplies.
• High Efficiency Toilets (HET), which include Dual Flush fixtures, approved by the USEPA WaterSense program qualify for rebate. HET fixtures use 1.3 gallons per flush or less. Dual flush toilets use 1.6 gpf for full flush (solids) and 0.8 to 1.1 gpf for half flush (liquids). Please check the list of approved toilets on the USEPA’s website: www.epa.gov/watersense/pp/find_het.htm
• Rebates are provided to encourage the voluntary early replacement of older, less efficient pre-1995 toilets. Fixtures replaced as part of a general construction permit (such as a house remodeling), new construction, and post 1995 toilets do not qualify for rebate.
• Fixture must replace a 3.5 gallon per flush or greater volume toilet.
• Old toilet fixtures must not be used again and must be rendered inoperable. City of Gillette requires proper disposal of the toilet.
