Beginning January 8, 2008, the Department of Watershed Management offers a Toilet Retrofit Rebate Program to active DeKalb County water customers whose homes were built prior to 1993. This program will assist customers in replacing their old toilets with high efficiency toilets to conserve water and money. Toilets being replaced must have been installed prior to 1993.
- Toilets must be installed in a DeKalb County property that is an individually metered residential dwelling as defined by Section 27-31 of the DeKalb County Code. The property/installation address must have an individual, active DeKalb County water account number that is billed directly by DeKalb County Water and Sewer (a DeKalb County Water and Sewer account verifies that a home is individually metered).
- There is a limit of replacing three (3) toilets per household. The number of toilets per household will be verified through property tax records. Note: If you have purchased your property within the last 2-3 months, please provide a copy of your settlement statement, HUD statement, or warranty deed as proof of ownership. To qualify for a rebate, each new toilet must be replacing an existing old, large capacity toilet installed prior to 1993.
- Old toilets cannot be reused. Participants agree to dispose of their old toilets.
- This program is subject to on-site verification of the purchase and installation of the product.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are two rebate options. Rebates are determined by the capacity and the purchase price (before taxes) of the toilet.

, a rebate of up to $50.00 will be given.

Only the exact model names and number combinations on DeKalb County's list of eligible toilets will qualify for the toilet rebate. These toilets have been tested by the Maximum Performance Test in specific combinations for performance and water savings - tank and bowl number cannot be "mixed and matched" from different models. Other models may be available for purchase, but WILL NOT qualify for a rebate. Customers will only be allowed to apply for a maximun of three (3) toilets per household.
