Residential High Efficiency Toilet Rebate

Miami-Dade County residents can replace older-model toilets with High-Efficiency models.

Single-family residential property owners or tenants, as well as multi-family property owners, may receive a $50 rebate with the purchase and installation of a WaterSense-certified High-Efficiency toilet.

To qualify, the residential property must have been built prior to 1996.

Qualifying for the rebate

Submit the appropriate application form, the original purchase receipt and packaging information from the manufacturer showing that the toilet is WaterSense-certified.

Application for single-family residential properties or units:

Only one toilet rebate per fiscal year (October 1 – September 30) per household, for a maximum of two toilet rebates per property. The rebate is based on the purchase date of the toilet.

Application for multi-family residential property owners:

For multi-family property owners, a maximum of 50 rebates per property are available each fiscal year (October 1 – September 30).

  • Mail the application and original purchase receipt within 60 days of purchase to:
    MIAMI DADE WATER AND SEWER DEPARTMENT
    WATER-USE EFFICIENCY PROGRAM
    3071 SW 38 AVENUE
    MIAMI FL 33146

The Miami-Dade Water & Sewer Department reserves the right to inspect a toilet. If you are selected for an inspection, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment.

You will receive a letter stating that Miami-Dade County has received and processed your application for a rebate. It will take up to 60 days to receive your rebate check, depending upon the volume of applications we receive.

For more information, email the Water Conservation Program or call 786-552-8974.

Why go high-efficiency?

All new manufactured toilets are required by federal law to use 1.6 gallons per flush (GPF) or less. The plumbing industry has introduced many new technologies and toilet fixture models that reduce effective flush volumes well below the mandated 1.6 GPF maximum.

A high-efficiency toilet is defined as a toilet that uses just 1.28 GPF or less. Toilets prior to 1992 use from 3.5 to six GPF.

A household can save more than 4,000 gallons a year with a high-efficiency toilet. A family of four will save more than $90 per year in reduced water bills and $2,000 over the course of the toilet's lifetime.
