Low Flow Toilets

NOTE:  Replacement of toilet is required for proper water efficient flushing.  Partial "fixes" and retrofits to toilets are not acceptable.

Toilets shall not exceed the federal code of 1.6 gallons per flush (EPAct 1992, EPAct 2005).  Any replacement toilet shall comply with San Francisco Plumbing Code of 1.28 gallons per flush or less. (City and County of San Francisco Plumbing Code, Chapter 4: Plumbing Fixtures and Fixture Fittings).


SFPUC currently offers a $125 rebate per tank style toilet and $300 rebate per flushometer valve style toilet to switch to high efficiency toilets.
