In 2014, the City of Portsmouth's Water & Sewer Division introduced their latest effort to promote water efficiency in our water and sewer systems - A Toilet and Washing Machine replacement rebate for eligible residential water customers. Qualifying Customers who replace older, inefficient toilets and clothes washing machines with high efficiency, low flow models will be eligible to receive a $100 rebate per toilet and $150 per washing machine.
Significant savings can be realized by participating in this program. Analysis by the City staff show that customers who have taken advantage of the rebates are seeing approximately 20% savings in indoor water consumption. The following graphic shows an example of how changing out an older, inefficient toilet, with a new low-flow toilet, can save water and money:
