Your company can save water and money with the San Antonio Water System (SAWS) Commercial Toilet Retrofit Programs.

Toilet Distribution

Replace old, high-water use residential- and industrial-style toilets with new high-efficiency toilets.

Who qualifies?
SAWS Commercial Water Customers replacing high flow toilets installed prior to 1992.

What types of toilets are available?
Note: All toilets come with seat, wax ring and mounting hardware.

Residential Style ToiletsResidential Style Toilets
Residential style toilets are gravity flush, tank type toilets typically found in residential settings. Residential style toilets are available in round front, elongated and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliant models. All residential style toilets are floor mount, floor discharge models.

Industrial Flush Valve Toilets
Industrial Flush ValveIn an Industrial Flush Valve Toilet, water flows under pressure from the supply piping directly into the fixture. Because Industrial Flush Valves are directly connected to supply lines, repeat operation is faster than the refilling process in tank-type toilets. The pressurized flush from an Industrial Flush Valve also produces a more powerful, cleansing flush. Industrial Flush Valve Toilets are available in standard height and ADA
Compliant models.

ADA and Elongated
Residential and industrial style ADA Compliant toilets will be provided where high flow ADA Compliant toilets previously existed or where a need has been established and properly documented. Residential style elongated toilets will only be provided where required by local plumbing code.

What steps are involved?
  1. Identify the type and number of fixtures you are retrofitting.
  2. Complete the paper application (PDF) and mail it to SAWS by Nov. 1, 2014. The application must be postmarked by Nov. 1, 2014 to be considered.
  3. Be prepared to allow a SAWS Representative to conduct a pre-retrofit inspection.
  4. Upon approval by SAWS, you will be authorized to pick up your new fixtures from a SAWS authorized location. SAWS will arrange free delivery for orders of 10 or more toilets. At the discretion of SAWS, applicants may be eligible for assistance with the cost of installation. Such assistance is not a guaranteed part of the program and is wholly dependent on a cost-benefit analysis conducted only by SAWS.
