Other units such as the Toto Washlet shown here which you can add on to almost any standard toilet come with a remote control so you can adjust the spray angle to hit you just right. You can also adjust the temperature of the water and make the sprayer pulsate and oscillate. “When you get off that seat you’re refreshed” says Bill Strang president of operations and e-commerce at Toto.
For some American Standard models surface technology is fired directly into the chinaware to help resist dirt buildup and make the toilet easier to clean. The company also has cleaning systems built into toilets such as the ActiClean. A button independent of the flush releases a cleaning solution into the tank. “These are innovations to make a consumer’s life easier” Walsh says. “Nobody wants to worry about a dirty toilet”.
For manufacturers of smart toilets the biggest hurdle seems to be getting people to try the product. Not an easy feat. “Think about how most of us grew up” Kohler’s Allis says. “When we are going through our toileting routine we use toilet paper. Smart toilets with bidets are something very different for the vast majority of the U.S. market. Once you use a product like this you don’t want to go back. But how do people get that exposure?”
Push-button toilets are popular for giving a room more of a modern spa feel even if the rest of the house is more or less traditional. Lever toilets are usually less expensive and the look is more classic so both options can make sense. Toilets with two flush option buttons reduce the amount of water used during the majority of flushes which over time can more than make up for the additional upfront cost.
Rarely is it practical to move a toilet if you aren’t designing your bathroom from scratch (i.e. during a new build). If possible keep in mind that a toilet should be a minimum of 15 inches from nearby objects (such as showers walls and vanities) measured from the centerline of the toilet. For more comfort 18 or more inches is recommended. If you can’t relocate try to avoid adding obstacles such as towel bars and consider using a small vanity. Also an elongated toilet seat (longer and narrower than a standard rounded seat) may give you a little extra leg room.
