“They’re fantastic” Guy says of the new smart toilets. “We are not using as much water. Bidet seats are reducing the amount of paper use after you’ve gone number two. Low-flush toilets have caused nothing but issues with clogged sewer lines”. Toto’s Strang agrees. “The next step of toilet evolution is getting down to the lowest possible water consumption” he says. Most Toto toilets now flush with only 1 gallon vs. the national standard of 1.6 gallons per flush. “We’re phasing out all higher-flush toilets and moving down to the 1-gallon solution” he says. But water conservation isn’t the only hurdle toilet manufacturers face.
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.
It’s not all about keeping our bums clean. We put a lot of effort into keeping the toilet itself clean too. And it seems like the cleaner it is the better we feel psychologically. “I think overall whenever you think of what consumers would want out of their toilet clean rises to the top” Allis says. There’s a lot of research energy going into surfaces and how the water moves around inside the bowl.
Shane Allis director of sanitary product marketing at Kohler says the integrated bidet function is something the company had in its Numi model six or seven years ago and is now becoming common in newer less-expensive lines a trend he expects to continue in the next few years. Allis says lighting and integrated bidet functions are the fastest-growing features.
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.
