City Giving Away Free Toilets To Qualifying Residents

Tina with the Seattle Public Utilities, wanted us to pass along this information about free high-efficiency toilets available to qualifying city residents.

The program is open continually with no deadline for application.

The information says:

Toilets offered by Seattle Public Utilities flush well, help conserve water, and save homeowners money. Replacement of older toilets with high-efficiency models can save a family of four up to 24,000 gallons of water and $140 each year.
If you meet the following criteria and income guidelines, you can qualify for free toilets and installation by a licensed professional plumber:
  • You are a homeowner of any age with a Seattle Public Utilities account.
  • You currently live in the home you own.
  • Your existing toilets were manufactured before 1994
  • You meet income guidelines for your household size

 Here are the income guidelines by number of people in the family, annual income and monthly income:
  • 1 - $30,036; $2,503
  • 2 - $39,276; $3,273
  • 3 - $48,516; $4,043
  • 4 - $57,756; $4,813
  • 5 – $66,996; $5,583
  • 6 – $76,236; $6,353
