Just where does all that scientific time and energy (not to mention money) go? The way James Walsh vice president of chinaware and commercial products at toilet maker American Standard sees it toilets can be broken down into two categories: practical and pamper me.
Toto’s Washlet toilet for example has a sensor that recognizes when you’re coming and sprays a quick spritz of water to the sides of the bowl to make it wet and improve lubricity. This isn’t guesswork. Toto spent time studying the tribology coefficient of friction which is a fancy way of saying the science of how surfaces interact and found that making the porcelain wet reduces stickiness so the toilet stays cleaner longer.
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.
