Looking to save water and money? Older-model toilets use up to six gallons of water per flush, making them a source of a lot of wasted water. By replacing old toilets with high-efficiency models, estimates show that a family of four can save up to 20,000 gallons, or $110, a year. If half of Albany’s residents replaced one toilet in their home, it would save approximately 95 million gallons a year!
The City of Albany offers $50 rebates for replacing old toilets with high-efficiency ones (1.28 gallons per flush). Rebates are limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
