The other roadblock is outlets. Smart toilets need electricity and most bathrooms don’t come with an outlet near the toilet. “The single biggest angst that consumers have about smart toilets is ‘How am I going to plug this in?’” Strang says. Toto encourages builders and homeowners to put outlets near toilets when building a home or remodeling a home even if you’re not installing a smart toilet now. You or a future homebuyer might want to have a smart toilet someday. And the cost is relatively inexpensive if you’re already renovating.
When smart toilets with these features originally came out plumber Dave Guy and his co-workers thought they were the “silliest things in the world” he says. Then a toilet company gave him one for free and encouraged him to try it out in his own home which he did. Now he has three. “They’re definitely a benefit in more ways than one” he says. “Music and heat they’re a little overkill though”.
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.
