3 things about TOTO I learned at the Kitchen & Bath Show:
1. They make a toilet that uses UV light technology for self cleaning of lime scale, mold & waste.
2. Specifying a wall hung toilet will provide more room if you have limited space.
3. Their damaged toilets are recycled into new tile which offers anti-microbial properties.

Actilight Cleansing Technology:
The NEOREST 750H offers the most complete bowl cleansing system available. TOTO’s patented flushing and cleansing technologies effectively rid the bowl of both visible and invisible waste. This advanced cleansing system starts with TOTO’s eWater+ technology. Using the incoming water supply, a pre-mist wets the bowl’s surface preventing waste’s adherence 80% better than a dry bowl. After each flush, eWater+ mists the bowl with electrolysed water, which has a slightly acidic pH value, keeping the bowl fresh and clean longer.
NEOREST 750H’s bowl is glazed with TOTO’s HYDROTECT titanium dioxide coating and zirconium, giving it a lovely iridescent, mother-of-pearl sensibility. Extremely hydrophilic, HYDROTECT makes it nearly impossible for organic substances to adhere to the bowl’s surface, enabling waste, lime scale, and mold to wash away with ease. Further, when combined with sunlight, HYDROTECT triggers a photocatalytic process in which organic substances are broken down. To achieve this, TOTO integrated a UV light in the seat lid that is activated when the lid is closed. Once the UV light hits the HYDROTECT’s titanium dioxide coating on the toilet’s bowl, photocatalysis occurs, accelerating the decomposition of all organic substances in the bowl.
Oh, the dreaded commercial restrooms…Have you ever had to straddle the toilet just to get the door closed? C’mon, I know you’ve scraped your knee once or twice trying to shut the door! A solution to a tight-toilet-space, is specifying a wall-hung toilet. It only occupies 21-1/16 inches of space from the front of the toilet to the wall.
Ever wonder what happens to imperfect and damaged china? TOTO partnered with Crossville to recycle the crushed up pieces into tile! In addition, they add HYDROTECT technology during the firing process which creates an easy cleanable surface and an anti-microbial effect.
