As mentioned earlier infrastructure support helps proliferate the technology. Walsh says most new construction in Japan includes outlets near the toilet location which makes installing a high-tech toilet easier. Plus in Japan many units are small and have only one bathroom. So splurging on a high-end toilet often makes more financial sense than in America where homes have multiple toilets.
Everyone poops. Let’s just get that out there in the open. Because it’s difficult to discuss toilets without first acknowledging what they’re used for. Toilets get rid of our waste so we can live in relatively sanitary societies. Adequate sewage systems and water treatment facilities that remove waste from our homes process it and return clean water back to us are a hallmark of a developed society.
Add-on units are even more affordable. Tushy’s bidet attachment shown here which affixes to any standard American toilet in less than 10 minutes costs $69. No plumbing or electrical are required. For a little more money you can get a Tushy that allows you to attach a hose to the hot water beneath your sink and have a warm-water bidet. It’s great for rental units in which you’re not allowed to make upgrades. There’s no air dryer so you still need to use a little toilet paper.
Toto also has a feature that electrolyzes the water to help sanitize it before it even enters the bowl. Potable water flows over anodized cathodes that electrolyze the water and pull out sodium and chlorine. Then that water gets sprayed into the bowl 45 seconds after you walk away. “It improves the hygienic characteristics making the bowl cleaner for the next visit” Strang says. It also reduces the amount of chemicals you use and the number of times you have to clean the toilet he says. Strang also touts another one of Toto’s features: A 220-wavelength ultraviolet light is shined into the bowl once a day to help break down and decompose grime.
Push-button toilets are popular for giving a room more of a modern spa feel even if the rest of the house is more or less traditional. Lever toilets are usually less expensive and the look is more classic so both options can make sense. Toilets with two flush option buttons reduce the amount of water used during the majority of flushes which over time can more than make up for the additional upfront cost.
