Strang says Toto has also developed technology that uses the flow from a toilet flush to spin a micro turbine that generates and stores electricity for the next flush. “If you’re off the grid you don’t need external power” he says.
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.
Another behind-the-scenes or at least inside-the-wall thing to consider is whether your toilet’s flushing mechanism will be gravity-based or pressure-assisted. Pressure-assisted toilets enhance the natural water flow caused by gravity for a stronger flush that leaves a cleaner bowl. Again the composition of your wall position of the toilet relative to the main water supply and other factors will affect whether you can install a pressure-assisted system so you may want to have the wall opened before making your purchase.
