The flush of water in most toilets comes from 30 to 60 holes beneath the rim of the bowl. Often this area can build up with grunginess from waste and minerals left behind by the trickle of water. In new designs from Toto the multihole method is replaced with a Tornado flush which consists of two jets that spin the water at high speed to remove grime.
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.
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”. Nevertheless the top toilet manufacturers recognize the divide and note that places such as China and Japan are adopting smart toilets much more quickly than in the U.S. Walsh from American Standard says the rate of adoption is going up in America though it’s far from where it is in Japan.
