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.
Many toilet companies employ well-trained scientists in various fields that you’ve probably never heard of — tribology coefficient of friction anyone? For example toilet manufacturer Toto employs 1.500 engineers across a range of sciences to study human behavior and create new products and technologies. So forget the image of a plunger; have a seat and check out what could be coming to a potty near you.
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.
Although the humble toilet isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of a visually stunning bathroom it’s still an important element with just as many varieties to choose from as other plumbing fixtures. Choosing well the first time (and resisting the temptation to cut corners) will avoid regrets and possibly more expense down the road. Read on for a handy breakdown of key features you should consider before settling on the right fixture for you.
Of course the cost of smart toilets is a major hurdle for consumers. But most experts say the costs are going down fast. American Standard’s ActiClean unit shown here and in the previous image is under $500 which is in range of any other major appliance found in the home. “People spend a lot of money on a whirlpool tub” Allis says. “How often are they using that in comparison to using the toilet every day multiple times a day?”
