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.
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.
Guy says the amperage needed for a smart toilet is very low and having an electrician run an outlet near the toilet is pretty straightforward and easy. In the worst case scenario you can install a wire along the wall with a casing over it. He does warn that the all-inclusive smart toilet models require power to flush the toilet. So if the power goes out your toilet won’t work.
