So who is paying for all those new toilets being installed in your state? You - the taxpayer! Nothing is free!
well arent you full of cheer.
we had a program years ago that rebated you the amount of a toilet. it was done by a grant. lots of generous donors here in California saves water in the long run.

I've never heard of a program like this & wondering if it's need based...it seems strange that anyone gets free toilets if they could pay for them. Are they only replacing toilets that are old & don't save water? Free is never free, the money for the program has to come from somewhere, do you know where? Anyway, it's interesting.

That's a great thing.
We replaced ours a few years ago. From 6GPF (gallons per flush) to 1.6. Huge difference, and they work just fine. It's in the engineering - seriously. Ours are Toto "Promenade". That's all water that has to be re-claimed and processed (savings in the long run), and it is not an infinite resource.
They are taller models, too - easier for us to use.

That's nice! We replaced our three toilets over the last year with a very similar looking one that's a water saver with a top button flush. However we had to pay for each one.

I had a "riser" put on my toilet after I had knee replacement surgery, as recommended, and never took it off.
I’m not a tall person, but all of our toilets are the higher height. I occasionally go to someone’s home where they have the old style, low toilets, and feel like I’m sitting very close to the floor.
@september So true! It's easy to get used to the higher ones. All of our replacements are the taller kind. It feels weird to use one of the old lower ones.

Half the water but Twice the flush.
Result - Same-Same
@sidsmom I respectfully disagree with your statement. I have American Standard Champion Pro toilets (3 of them) that are high efficiency using 1.28gpf and they never require two flushes. Prior to installing these toilets, I had toilets that used far more water and would get clogged and required more than one flush.

@sidsmom Sorry but I disagree. We have replaced both of our toilets with these high efficient ones.
The tanks are much smaller hence holding much less water. The flush is so powerful everyting is removed at hyper force, nothing left 'behind'.
