|Toilet and Washing Machine Rebates
Customers who replace existing water fixtures with approved low flow fixtures as per the Uniform Building Code are eligible for a credit on their water bill. We do not issue cash or check rebates and the credit is applied directly to the account where the fixture is installed. To qualify for a credit, you must submit a completed rebate application form along with a copy of the receipt showing purchase of the installed low flow fixture or fixtures. No credit will be given for labor. The District reserves the right to inspect the customer's premises for purposes of verification. Retrofit credits will be awarded in the following amounts:
(a) Credit of up to $100 for replacing a toilet using over 1.6 gallons per flush with a High Efficiency Toilet (HET) averaging 1.28 gallons per flush or less;
(b) Credit of up to $50 for replacing a toilet using 1.5 to 1.6 gallons per flush with a HET;
(c) Credit of up to $50 for replacing a higher volume urinal with a High Efficiency Urinal using 0.5 gallons per flush or less;
(d) Credit of up to $100 for replacing a water-using urinal with a waterless urinal;
(e) Credit of up to $100 for installing an approved H-axial washing machine in a residential application to replace a washing machine that does not meet this approval standard;
(f) Credit of up to $200 for installing an approved H-axial washing machine in a commercial application to replace a washing machine that does not meet this approval standard. Commercial application is herein defined to mean any washing machine that is coin operated and is intended to serve more than one family, residential structure or premise.
The City of Scotts Valley is offering an additional rebate of up to $100 if the cost of your new HET exceeds $100. To qualify you must be approved for the Scotts Valley Water District retrofit credit first and connected to the City sewer system.
