Many states and provinces are offering tax incentives or rebates to homeowners who are making a conscious effort at being energy proficient. These programs encourage the use of more efficient appliances, installation of better insulated windows and to use appliances that decrease water consumption.

In desert climates like California or New Mexico (or even Australia), the efforts to conserve water have always been a priority. However, a new rebate program has gotten the attention of scammers, who have found a way to bilk homeowners out of their rightful funds. How does the scam work?

Scammers are going door to door in neighborhoods advising homeowners that a new law requires the installation of low-flow, high-efficiency dual flush toilets. The truth is, while it is encouraged by the state's various water districts, it is not a requirement.

The companies offer to install these dual flush toilets for free, to help homeowners become compliant with the "law". The contractors then take a signed form from the resident to the water district and collect up to $165 through a rebate program set up to encourage homeowners to purchase and install toilets that reduce the usage of water.

How to avoid the Dual Flush Toilet/ Low Flow Toilets Rebate scam:

Residents who are approached by any company offering their contractor services door to door should always ask to see a business license, as well as a contractor's license.

Also, ask if they have a license to do business in the city in which they are circulating. And anyone who does work in your home should provide proof of worker's compensation and liability insurance, in the event they are injured on the job or they damage your property.


If the contractor has those items, they are more than likely legitimate. It is also prudent to check with your local water district to verify the existence of laws requiring the installation of these types of appliances and also to inquire about any rebate programs that are available for voluntary compliance.
