For manufacturers of smart toilets the biggest hurdle seems to be getting people to try the product. Not an easy feat. “Think about how most of us grew up” Kohler’s Allis says. “When we are going through our toileting routine we use toilet paper. Smart toilets with bidets are something very different for the vast majority of the U.S. market. Once you use a product like this you don’t want to go back. But how do people get that exposure?”
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.
Installation will become easier too. Systems such as ReadyLock from Kohler allow toilets to be installed without the need of additional drilling into the floor. “If you talk to plumbers there’s nothing they hate more than drilling into a marble floor” Allis says. “With our system there’s no secondary attachment point required”.
What Guy likes best being a plumber is the bidet feature which conserves water and cuts down on the amount of toilet paper that gets flushed down the pipes. He says while toilets continue to use less water people aren’t producing less waste or using less toilet paper. And that has wreaked havoc on sewer lines. He sees a ray of hope with bidet systems. When people use them they use less toilet paper which allows flushing with less water and puts less strain on plumbing.
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.
