Strang says this technology is moving slowly and cautiously. “It’s tied up with making sure there’s a marketplace for the innovation and it comes with the proper regulation and legislation” he says. “You want the biometric feedback to be true and accurate and reliable. One incident of nonreliability will cause it to crash”. In other words if the current whiz-bang features aren’t enough to get you to splurge on a smart toilet just sit tight — there’s more to come.
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.
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.
