You’ll save more than just money!
  • High efficiency clothes washers use up to 55% less water than standard washers. 
  • By replacing old, inefficient toilets with WaterSense labeled models, the average family can reduce water used for toilets by 20 to 60 percent—that's nearly 13,000 gallons of water savings every year!
  • High efficiency washers also use less overall energy so cost savings may be seen on both your water/sewer and electricity bills!

  1. EXCELLENT ADVICE! Get the $50 toilet rebate from Franklin! Today's new WaterSense High-Efficiency Toilets (HETs) outperform the older 3.5 and 5.0 gallon toilets by a large margin! After all, when it comes right down to it, you want a toilet that 'does the job' as well as saves water. The U.S. EPA's WaterSense program is designed specifically to do that. Go to the website to learn about the flush performance of over 2,900 different WaterSense toilet models from over 100 different brands! All of these models were INDEPENDENTLY TESTED by laboratories NOT connected to any manufacturer. Click on ‘MaP Search’ to use the free search tool OR download complete product listings.

    MaP development was sponsored by PUBLIC WATER UTILITIES IN THE U.S. AND CANADA in 2003 to give consumers a means to compare actual flush performance among all the many toilet models available in the marketplace. All of this is FREE. MaP does NOT sell merely has them tested and reports the results to the public free-of-charge.
