Innovation is constantly improving and expanding toilet design and functionality to use less water be more comfortable and yes even pamper us. “It’s starting to change — it really is” builder and designer Karl Champley says.
Toto’s Washlet toilet for example has a sensor that recognizes when you’re coming and sprays a quick spritz of water to the sides of the bowl to make it wet and improve lubricity. This isn’t guesswork. Toto spent time studying the tribology coefficient of friction which is a fancy way of saying the science of how surfaces interact and found that making the porcelain wet reduces stickiness so the toilet stays cleaner longer.
You tap that illuminated area of floor with your foot and the ring rises. After you use the toilet and walk away a sensor detects that you’ve left and flushes and closes the ring and lid. The toilet can even tell if you were sitting or standing and adjust to flush with the least amount of water needed. If you had sat down for longer than a minute the toilet would have used a longer flush. For around $6.000 this experience and more can be yours.
Designer Champley has this experience rather often. He’s got the Kohler Numi in his home a gift from the company Champley says. (Toilet companies will often give high-end toilets to designers and sellers in hopes that they will become converts and help spread the word of the benefits of the product).
Historically this two-sided development has a lot to do with the amount of fiber people consume (less in the U.S. and the U.K.) weather culture religion and more. And there are pros and cons to each side. One common argument is that bidets waste more water than toilet paper. But many experts say that the amount of water it takes to make toilet paper exceeds that used by bidets.
