Feeling flush? Tahoe Donner PUD and Western Nevada Supply team up to offer customers free toilets

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8211; The Truckee Donner Public Utility District and Western Nevada Supply are partnering up to offer customers a free water-efficient toilet in exchange for an old toilet.

TDPUD customers are invited to exchange their old waterguzzling toilets at the Western Nevada Supply store in Truckee. Up to three toilets per household can be traded for free water-efficient new toilets through this program. In lieu of the free exchange for standard models, customers may instead opt to apply for a $100 credit towards any Western Nevada Supply toilet that provides 1.6 gallons per flush or less.

and#8220;Saving water and money is very important to our customers,and#8221; said Tony Laliotis, TDPUD Director. and#8220;Water-efficient toilets are an excellent way to conserve. We hope to deliver many new and innovative programs in the future.and#8221;

Older toilets typically use between 3-7 gallons of water per flush. New, water-saving toilets and#8211; required in homes and businesses 1992 and after and#8211; only use 1.6 gallons of water per flush, or less. Toilets are one of the biggest water users inside a home or business so replacing your older, inefficient toilets can be a wise investment.

and#8220;We look forward to partnering with the TDPUD and working with their customers,and#8221; said Ted Reviglio, of Western Nevada Supply, which has been serving the Truckee area since 1964.
