Historically this two-sided development has a lot to do with the amount of fiber people consume (less in the U.S. and the U.K.) weather culture religion and more. And there are pros and cons to each side. One common argument is that bidets waste more
For American Standard the future holds load-sensing technology that will sense what’s in the bowl and deliver the proper amount of water to flush. If the toilet is dirty it will do another flush or activate a cleaning routine. Devices that sense a clogged toilet
Other areas of focus are on products that help bedridden people and disabled children use the restroom. But if you want to think further into the future a big area of excitement is in biometrics. The idea is that sensors in the toilet could analyze
In the end though Garg and Singh conclude that “both methods were perhaps developed and have survived for centuries of usage because of the dietary fiber habits of these populations. Therefore both methods are scientifically correct and suit the populations where they are being used”.
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
Shane Allis director of sanitary product marketing at Kohler says the integrated bidet function is something the company had in its Numi model six or seven years ago and is now becoming common in newer less-expensive lines a trend he expects to continue in the
You tap that illuminated area of floor with your foot and the ring rises. After you use the toilet and walk away a sensor detects that you’ve left and flushes and closes the ring and lid. The toilet can even tell if you were sitting
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
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
Strang says this technology is moving slowly and cautiously. “It’s tied up with making sure there’s a marketplace for the innovation and it comes with the proper regulation and legislation” he says. “You want the biometric feedback to be true and accurate and reliable. One
