Multi-Residential Toilet Replacement Rebate
In multi-residential properties, landlords and tenants face structural barriers that make investments in water efficiency less cost effective. To help overcome these barriers WERIP offers $60 per toilet for replacement of toilets that use 13 Litres per flush (Lpf) or more with qualifying High Efficiency toilets using 6 Lpf or less in multi-residential properties of 3 units or more. Social Housing providers can receive up to $125 per toilet. Multi-residential buildings have demonstrated water use reductions of 35% after replacing toilets with High Efficiency models.
Those wishing to take advantage of the toilet replacement rebate need to fill out an application form and receive pre-approval notice from Utilities Kingston before toilets are replaced. A pre-project inspection and/or digital photos of the existing toilets may be required by Utilities Kingston. Once the project is approved by Utilities Kingston and the toilets are replaced, proponents may apply for their toilet replacement incentive by filling out the application form and submitting required receipts and proof of installation. Utilities Kingston will then inspect to confirm installation of the toilets and process the rebate.

Utilities Kingston does not offer toilet rebates to homeowners who pay their own water bill. Based on current Utilities Kingston water rates, replacement of high flush volume toilets in owner-occupied residences typically have a financial payback of 2 to 5 years while also improving property value. Investing in faucet aerators, high efficiency shower heads, and considering water efficiency when purchasing new appliances have similar or better paybacks. Since water efficiency is such a good financial investment for those who own their home and pay the water bill for the property, Utilities Kingston feels that conservation dollars are better spent in areas where financial barriers prevent water efficiency investments.
