Woodmoor Water & Sanitation District
Q. What is the total rebate credit I can get from Woodmoor Water and Sanitation District this year?
A. Assuming all the purchases meet the qualifications, the maximum total rebate to any single family residence would be $415. This is assuming three high efficiency toilet rebates @ $75 each, plus one high-efficiency clothes washer rebate @ $100, plus one irrigation controller rebate @ $35, plus one wireless rain sensor rebate @ $25, plus three shower head rebate @ $10. Unless otherwise stated, rebates are limited to one per customer every three years (per specific product rebate offer).
Q. How long will it take to get my rebate check?
A. Please allow two billing cycles for your rebate to be processed and credited to your account.
Q. What stores sell these water conserving devices and fixtures?
A. Many retail stores sell these items, but you need to phone first to make sure the model you want is available. For irrigation equipment, check stores or ask your professional landscape contractor. If you don't have a professional landscape contractor, call to ask for a recommendation from the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado at 303-757-5611 or contact them through their website. For washing machines, toilets and showerheads contact your local department store or "big box" retail store.
Q. Who do I contact if I have additional questions?
A. Call Woodmoor Water and Sanitation District at 719-488-2525 ext. 10.
A. All new toilets are required by federal law to use 1.6 gallons per flush or less. The plumbing industry is introducing many new technologies and toilet fixture models that reduce effective flush volumes well below the mandated 1.6 gallons per flush (GPF) maximum. An HET is defined as a toilet that flushes at 20 percent or better below the 1.6 GPF level. Only those toilets on the accompanying list are eligible for the rebate, however the list expands periodically as new toilets are tested and deemed highly efficient. An up-to-date list is available on Denver Water's website under "Conservation". Only those toilets on the High-Efficiency rebate list are eligible for the $75 rebate.
Q. How do HET's achieve the savings?
A. HET's generally fall into two distinct categories, dual flush and 1.0 gallons per flush (GPF) pressure-assist. A dual flush toilet is a toilet that allows the user to choose between a "short flush" that uses between 0.8 and 1.1 gallons when there is only liquid waste in the toilet to be flushed, and a "full flush" using 1.6 gallons when solid waste is to be flushed.
Q. What is an Low Flow Toilet or an Ultra Low Volume Toilet?
A. Toilets labeled ULV or ULF use 1.6 gallons per flush. The United States National Energy Policy Act of 1993 mandated that toilets sold in the United States cannot use more than 1.6 gallons per flush. Therefore all toilets are supposed to meet this standard.
Q. How do I choose which toilet to buy?
A. You may choose any toilet from the lists of eligible toilets. Selecting a toilet depends on your personal preferences as to the aesthetics of the toilet's design and the ability of the toilet to effectively remove waste from the bowl.
Q. I heard the new low flow toilets don't work well. What's the truth?
A. Some models of low volume toilets manufactured in the early 90's often had problems. Since then manufacturers have invested in research and development to design low volume toilets that work as well as or better than the ones they replace. Customer satisfaction surveys confirm that owners of low volume toilets rate them very well about 90% of the time.
Q. I have several old toilets in my home, so how many can I replace?
A. You can receive up to a total of three toilet rebates. To save the most water, replace the oldest toilets that are used most frequently first.
Q. How much water can I save?
A. How much you save depends on the age of the toilets you are replacing, and the usage on your property. If you are replacing toilets manufactured between 1980 and 1994, a family of four can save over 17,000 gallons per year. Replacing older toilets manufactured between 1950 and 1980 can save even more, about 28,000 gallons per year for the same family of four. You can save even more if the old toilet did not flush well and you have to flush twice to clear the bowl.
Q. What do I do with my old toilet?
A. Break the porcelain bowl and tank into at least two pieces each before disposing of the toilet so that water-guzzlers won't be reused. (And be careful when breaking porcelain, which can make very sharp splinters.) Take a photo of the damaged toilet before you dispose of it, because you'll need to attach the photo to your rebate application. Old toilets can be disposed of with your trash, depending on your trash removal service. You may need to wait for your large item pick-up day. Old units may not be reused! The purpose of this rebate is to get old toilets out of service in our community and thus improve water efficiency.
CLOTHES WASHER & DISHWASHER
A. Old washers may be recycled or disassembled for usable parts. Ask your delivery person if he will pick up your old washer, or call your trash disposal service for large item pick-up.
Q. Will there be an inspection of my new toilet, clothes washer or dishwasher?
A. Woodmoor Water and Sanitation District will randomly select some rebate applications for inspection prior to the rebate being issued. By signing the rebate application, customers give Woodmoor Water and Sanitation District permission to perform this inspection.
