TOTO surpasses 40 million washlet units sold worldwide
TOTO recently announced that it has achieved a major global milestone with its popular Washlet line of personal cleansing systems. To date, the company has sold more than 40 million Washlets worldwide since its 1980 launch in Japan. During the past 35 years, TOTO has expanded its Washlet sales around the globe on all seven continents, in countries as diverse as the U.S., Germany, France, Korea, the Philippines, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Taiwan, India, Brazil, Mexico, China, Singapore, Korea, and the United Kingdom.
Washlets use pure, clean water — and myriad technological innovations — to make their users cleaner, happier, more refreshed than they have ever felt after a bathroom break by reinventing the toilet seat as a warm water personal cleansing system. When its cleansing cycle is activated, a streamlined wand with Wonderwave technology extends from beneath the seat to provide a soothing warm flow of aerated water for complete cleansing. Because the water is drawn directly from the home’s fresh water supply, the Washlet delivers warm water that is always clean and pure. Once the cleansing cycle is completed, the user may engage the drying cycle, which uses warm air to gently dry the area, protecting the environment by reducing the need for toilet tissue.
Newest technological innovation
Committed to People-First Innovation, TOTO advances are designed that meet people’s real world needs. To this end, the company introduced the first use of electrolyzed water designed to make the toilet bowl easier to clean. To create eWater+, TOTO engineers use only the home’s incoming water supply and the company’s patented technological process. eWater+ is applied to the bowl after every flush and once every eight hours during non-use. It returns to its natural state within two hours. A pre-misting of plain water further enhances bowl cleanliness by sealing the surface against the adherence of matter approximately 80% better than dry porcelain.
eWater+ is said to be good for the planet, too. It reduces the need for toxic chemicals used to clean the toilet, which helps to protect the environment as it saves consumers money on cleaning supplies and time cleaning the toilet. TOTO’s eWater+ technology is available on the Washlet S350e and S300e.
