Based out of Tokyo, Japan, TOTO Incorporated is the world’s largest bathroom producer. It was established in 1917 and is most renowned for producing the Washlet and related accessory products. The company is primarily based out of Kitakyushu, Japan, and has manufacturing facilities in nine other countries. These include China, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the United States.
To avoid confusion with toilet paper, which is also manufactured by TOTO, the company often refers to its “high-end” line of products as toto toilet paper. The toilet paper in question, however, has a much higher cost than a normal toilet paper. Its price is a reflection of the material it’s made out of (the type of plastic it’s usually made out of), its superior quality, as well as the unique patented process it goes through to create each sheet. One example of this unique patented process is how TOTO creates their “superior brand,” which is sold under the name of Toto Pro.
The main categories of TOTO toilets are bidet, vented and air. The bidet, or wash basin, is designed to wash and massage the genital area while simultaneously supplying moisture into the toilet bowl. Bidet toto toilets come in various forms, including a toilet seat that can be attached to the toilet, or a hand held device that’s intended to be used as a hands free toilet seat. The vented variety of toto toilet comes in either a standard height low profile, or elongated models. An elongated model is most appropriate for older people who may have joint problems that make the standard height poses an issue.
The standard height toto toilets are elongated to reach a greater distance than the low profile ones, which allows for a closer and more intimate fit. The elongated toto toilet seat also has a very useful feature of having an armrest, or leg rest, that tilts the seat forwards and down, which provides comfort and also gives you a better view of the porcelain, which may in turn reduce the risk of any splashes. Unfortunately, the standard height toto toilets do not have a universal height, so you’ll need to order the correct model to fit your height requirements.
A TOTO two-piece toilet fixture is designed to conserve space and help save on costs by using less water when flushing. To reduce water consumption and energy costs when using a toilet, consider purchasing a TOTO dual flap or two-piece toilet that offers both a waste cup and a waste bin. The waste cup has two flaps, which can either be opened and flushed, or closed and can be kept closed to save on water consumption. This is a very cost efficient way to handle two flushes, rather than just one. Using less water also means that there is a reduced risk of mould growing inside your bathroom or on your linens. If you want to keep the water consumption to a minimum and still reduce the risk of developing mold, consider a TOTO bi-fold or two-fold flushing system.
TOTO toilet seats are one of the most stylish and modern options out there on the market. They are available in a wide range of colors and finishes and are often considered to be on the luxurious side. However, they are also one of the most durable and efficient ones on the market, which can add up to the cons mentioned above. Also, if you have children or live in a household where there are a lot of young adults, you may find that this type of toilet seat is relatively easy to replace should it become damaged or stained. The overall benefits far outweigh the cons associated with these specific models and make TOTO one of the best brand names in the bathroom seat market.
