The latter category is one that raises eyebrows. Imagine this: It’s the middle of the night and you have to go to the bathroom. As you approach the toilet which is lighted by night light panels music that you preselected begins playing the lid rises a light shines on the floor next to the bowl.
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.
Rarely is it practical to move a toilet if you aren’t designing your bathroom from scratch (i.e. during a new build). If possible keep in mind that a toilet should be a minimum of 15 inches from nearby objects (such as showers walls and vanities) measured from the centerline of the toilet. For more comfort 18 or more inches is recommended. If you can’t relocate try to avoid adding obstacles such as towel bars and consider using a small vanity. Also an elongated toilet seat (longer and narrower than a standard rounded seat) may give you a little extra leg room.
For some American Standard models surface technology is fired directly into the chinaware to help resist dirt buildup and make the toilet easier to clean. The company also has cleaning systems built into toilets such as the ActiClean. A button independent of the flush releases a cleaning solution into the tank. “These are innovations to make a consumer’s life easier” Walsh says. “Nobody wants to worry about a dirty toilet”.
The standard height for a toilet seat is 17 inches one inch lower than the standard height for a chair seat. However most manufacturers also produce at least some of their models in a “comfort” height which is typically 19 inches. From a medical perspective lower toilet seats are recommended for typical users. However for those who have trouble getting into and out of a sitting position (such as the elderly or even simply the very tall) the comfort-height seat may be easier to use. If you don’t find standard toilets to be an issue ignore the comfort option and worry more about the distance your toilet sits from the wall.
