Ditch that old Toilet for one that conserves water...

Did you know that the State of California offers a rebate program for replacing old toilets with water conserving units? They do! The California Department of Water Resources will rebate up to $100 per household for the purchase and installation of one qualified "high-efficiency" toilet (aka, one that flushes 1.28 gallons or less). To qualify for the rebate, a homeowner must replace a low-efficiency toilet (aka, one that flushes more than 1.6 gallons). There are hundreds of different toilets that qualify as high-efficiency in many different styles.

There is limited funding for this rebate program, however it still has a couple million dollars available! To get started, visit the "Save Our Water Rebates" website. There is a brief online application and FAQ section...this is a nice way to modernize your bathroom and to help save water! Or at least get rid of that man-eating toilet.
