If you have a toilet that uses 1.6 gallons or more per flush, apply now for a premium toilet, free of charge and fully installed, that uses 1.0 gallon per flush. Smart irrigation controllers that automatically adjust your watering times based on the weather are also available through the program, free of charge.

To apply, call 1-888-272-8394 and request an appointment. 

The San Diego Diego County Water Authority announced that is has already replaced more than 6,000 toilets through the Direct Install Program, which is funded by more than $4 million in grants from the California Department of Water Resources and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
