Innovations in Spa Bathroom Fixtures: Toilet Technologies, Designs, and Performance

October 13, 2021 by No Comments

The latest innovations in spa bathroom fixtures and technologies offer strong designs that complement each other. One-piece toilets are very contemporary and decorative. It’s elegant designs would complement equally elegantly designed vessel or pedestal sinks, deep-soaking bathtubs, and sensor touch sink faucets for any 21st century Spa bathroom, as an example. Whether an elegant, low profile one- piece toilet such as TOTO’s Willingham One-Piece Toilet, or a comfort-height profile such as Caroma’s Caravelle Comfort-Height Toilet, or a space-saving profile such as TOTO’s Aquia Wall-Hung Toilet & In-Wall Tank System, high-efficiency performance lives up to a standard far beyond the older systems of the 1980’s and 1990’s that used double the amount of water to flush toilets. Around 1995, concerns about water conservation prompted federal law to mandate that new toilets must use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush, less than half of the 3.5 gallons per flush that was standard in the 1980’s. What emerged after early performance problems in the mechanics of flushing and cleaning toilet bowls with less water were several high-efficiency toilet technologies that actually did perform well and conserved water. For example, dual-flush technology is a high-efficiency technology that conserves water by separating the gallons of water consumed per flush for solid and liquid waste. Water consumption for solid waste is 1.6 gallons per flush while water consumption for liquid waste 0.8 gallons per flush, equating to half that of solid waste. Another high-efficiency technology conserved water by creating a fast flush by exerting water force with the assistance of pressurized air with each flush for flushing and cleaning toilet bowls. TOTO’s Willingham One-Piece Toilet uses a fast flush technology. WaterSense toilets are an enhanced high-efficiency technology that uses at least 20% less water than mandated 1.6-gallons per flush toilets without sacrificing flushing and cleaning performance such as Kohler’s San Raphael Toilet line. Toilet technologies and designs have come a long way since the 1980’s. Whether choosing dual-flush, pressurized air-assisted or WaterSense technologies, much less water is used to handle waste more efficiently.

Toilet designs have advanced in the last 30 years, as well. One-piece toilet designs add elegance to bathrooms and can either include a washlet seat or washlets can be purchased as an add-on. Toto’s Neorest 600 looks sleek for any spa bathroom and comes integrated with a washlet seat. Some toilet seats have advanced to become a self-contained spa experience Togel Singapore. For example, TOTO’s S300 Washlet Seat features front and rear warm water washing, an automatic air dryer and a built-in air purifying deodorizer system. Additionally, it offers automatic operation where the lid opens, closes and toilet flushes when a sensor is activated.

Comfort-height toilets provide, yet, another dimension to today’s toilets for its ease of use, not only meeting ADA compliance for mobility issues, but for the population of tall people who would prefer to sit higher or as a decorative, stately and elegant bathroom fixture that would complement other equally elegant bathroom fixtures such as vessel sinks and deep-soaking bathtubs.

Innovations in bathroom toilet technologies, designs, and performance help to create the ambiance of a private spa bathroom retreat. Temperature controlled heated toilet seats that provide a personal cleansing and drying system, toilet lids that automatically open and close, sensor activated toilet flushing systems with high-efficiency technologies that move substantially reduced amounts of water more vigorously around the bowl for increased cleaning power contributes to the latest innovations in spa bathroom technologies that release, relax and rejuvenate you in a healthy way while indulging your senses with some pampering.

When my wife and I bought a new home around 10 years ago, we knew we were going to spend a few dollars on structural upgrades. One of them was an extra foot of ceiling height in the basement so that once my gym was set up, overhead pressing wouldn’t be a problem. That foot cost an extra 22 grand by the way! But luxuries like hardwood flooring, granite counter tops, crown molding, and the like, we decided to hold off until later.

One household item that I didn’t give much consideration to initially was the toilet. Builders will try to save money anywhere they can, and toilets are no exception. I mean if you passed a kidney stone you’d clog these things, so you can imagine what it was like on a high protein and fiber diet!

When the day came to renovate, I made sure that the toilets were on the list. All 4 bathrooms were outfitted with new, high-end TOTO toilets. Pardon the pun, but these things kick some serious ass! I mean, you could eat bowls of cereal, oatmeal, and cream of wheat, a loaf of bread, and inhale some fruit along with it – you know, the typical breakfast you had in the ’80s – and it would be no match for these beasts.

Once in a blue moon – like maybe once a year – you would accomplish the ultimate goal of clogging a TOTO, and once you do, it’s a bitch to unclog! On a couple occasions, it’s taken me a few days of hardcore plunging before hearing that sacred “down the drain” sound. Forget battling ropes, you want conditioning? Unclog a TOTO!

Well, it just so happened that on one of these “clogged” occasions, we were expecting guests. My wife was busy cleaning the house, setting the table, getting the kids ready, and making dinner, and I had the hard task: unclog the TOTO! After getting an unbelievable arm pump, I decided to go to Home Depot and pick up one of those mega “Fred Flintstone” plungers. When I got back, I threw on a tank top, popped some caffeine and ephedrine, and went to work. After half an hour of what looked like a Crossfit session, still no success! I needed a different approach. I turned to my computer for help.

A simple internet search on “how to unclog a TOTO toilet” changed my life forever! In a forum post, a plumber mentioned that most people are doing it wrong when they try to unclog a toilet, any toilet. Using brute force with a “big-ass” plunger (again, pardon the pun) can make things worse! The trick is to use very short, quick strokes until you see the water vibrating, and then pull up on the plunger. Most of the time, the bowl will siphon out when you lift the plunger up and away.
