Clean white porcelain is by far the most common toilet choice. However most manufacturers offer a range of colors in at least some of their products. Typically pure white is the best bet for resale value as it will never go out of style. However it should be noted that “plain white” porcelain fixtures from different companies might not match one another. If your toilet sits next to a tub or porcelain-topped vanity it might be best to source the items from the same company or request a sample of one finish to compare with another when you’re out shopping. Noticeably different tones can look mismatched which can make a bathroom appear older or subtly messy.
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.
Add-on units are even more affordable. Tushy’s bidet attachment shown here which affixes to any standard American toilet in less than 10 minutes costs $69. No plumbing or electrical are required. For a little more money you can get a Tushy that allows you to attach a hose to the hot water beneath your sink and have a warm-water bidet. It’s great for rental units in which you’re not allowed to make upgrades. There’s no air dryer so you still need to use a little toilet paper.
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?”
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.
