The other roadblock is outlets. Smart toilets need electricity and most bathrooms don’t come with an outlet near the toilet. “The single biggest angst that consumers have about smart toilets is ‘How am I going to plug this in?’” Strang says. Toto encourages builders and homeowners to put outlets near toilets when building a home or remodeling a home even if you’re not installing a smart toilet now. You or a future homebuyer might want to have a smart toilet someday. And the cost is relatively inexpensive if you’re already renovating.
I loved the look and I’ve had “get black toilet seat” on my home to-do list for about seven years now (this is about the average amount of time something sits on my home to-do list). Slowly but surely the trend has gained momentum. While it started in bathrooms with the classic early-1900s look of black and white tile the trend has crept its way into bathrooms of all styles. Here’s a peek at white toilets wearing black lids in all sorts of chic bathrooms.
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”.
The Numi features a night light a heated seat an integrated bidet with temperature-controlled water an air dryer a deodorizer (a fan pulls air from inside the bowl runs it through a charcoal filter and releases exhaust out the back of the unit) music (Champley has his set to classical) and feet warmers (yes warm air blows from under the toilet bowl onto your feet). And it even washes itself. All this is controlled from a touchpad screen.
Kohler’s PureTide shown here is a manual bidet seat without the need for electricity. It operates just on water pressure alone. So if your power goes out you’re still good. The water isn’t heated so “people need to get a little accustomed to that” Allis says. But it installs quickly and simply. The cost is a little over $100 and can work on pretty much any current toilet. And that brings up another one of the biggest hurdles that manufacturers face in getting integrated smart toilets into consumers’ homes: education on wet vs dry cleaning.
