Dual Flush Toilet Rebates
How much is the rebate?
Rous Water offers a $50 rebate for the installation of a dual flush toilet or cistern to replace an existing single flush toilet or cistern.
How much water will I save?
Depending on your existing toilet cistern, a 6/3 litre dual flush cistern uses 66% less water than an old single flush unit. For the average household this means a saving of around 40,000 litres per year. That's a possible saving of $60 per year!
