As part of Cocoa’s water conservation program, the city offers an incentive to its water customers to encourage them to replace old high-volume toilets with high efficiency toilets (HETs). The Toilet Retrofit Rebate Program offers a $50 rebate to Cocoa water customers who change out old (pre-1994) high-volume toilets for WaterSense certified HETs (flush rate of 1.28 gallons or less) in accordance with the program guidelines. Save water and money by replacing older, high-volume toilets with more efficient toilets.

There are many different toilets on the marker. Look for the EPA's WaterSense logo. These toilets meet EPA’s specifications for water efficiency and performance. When you use these water–saving products in your home or business, you can expect exceptional performance, savings on your water bills, and assurance that you are saving water for future generations. Eligible HETs are listed on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website.

Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are given as a credit on your water bill. The Toilet Retrofit Rebate Program runs each fiscal year from October 1 through September 29 or until funds are depleted. To be eligible, you must purchase the toilet after October 1. Toilets must be purchased during the same fiscal year that the rebate is available. All paperwork must be submitted prior to the close of the program.

  • Toilets comprise the largest category of indoor water use, averaging from over one-third to almost one-half of total indoor use.

  • In 1992 federal law (Energy Policy Act of 1992) mandated that all toilets sold in the United States use an average of 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) or less.

  • Toilets made during the period 1980 to 1992 use 3.5 gpf or more.

  • Toilets made prior to 1980 use 5 to 7 gpf or more. The oldest toilets can use more than 8 gpf.
