TOTO Toilets – An Overview
Toto, stylized as TOTO, is Japan’s largest toilet producer. It was established in 1917 and is well known for creating the Washlet and other derivative products. The company is headquartered in Kitakyushu, Japan, which is located on the Shikine Island. There are five factories located in this city. It also has a number of distributors and wholesalers throughout the country.
Toto claims that its products perform better than other toilet supplies because it uses a combination of ceramic material, high-end steel and their unique rubber compound. They claim their products have a long lifespan as well as superior functionality. Toto’s product line, which is distributed throughout the United States and Canada, includes bathroom fixtures, accessories, ensembles, special items for the bath, accessories for the kitchen and furniture. They are well known for their “One Touch” technology, which they say improves on the traditional plunger style.
Toto is one of the few manufacturers that provide both countertop and undercounter toto toilets. Their other products include the Toilet Wall Plus. The Wall Plus both uses the same technology to dry the toilet after use. The bathroom accessories produced by Toto also use this technology, such as the air dryer and the power head. Toto claims their products are designed to dry the toilet completely, with no drips or leaks.
The seats of the Toto toilet models vary, depending on the model. The seat covers made by the company are made from durable nylon with vinyl backing. The bidet toilets have seats that are made from the same durable nylon and vinyl material. Both the seats and the bidet toilets have a footrest.
The Toto warm air dryer is included in all their models, and it is an accessory not sold separately. The dryer is a separate appliance that has a hose that attaches to the seat and a nozzle that sprays warm air. The dryer eliminates the need to use a towel, and as it dries, it ensures that the seat is dry. It is easy to operate, even for elderly people.
Although Toto toilet’s main product line includes flush and bidet toilets, they also make elongated toilets and specialized ones for those with disabilities. The elongated models offer wider restroom space, a higher floor, more accessible doorways, more safety features and easier installation. Older people can sit in these elongated toilet bowls, as they fit the standard height toilet bowl and can accommodate standard toilet seat height.
