More than a shower toilet – the original from Japan
WASHLET is the original shower toilet. As the market leader in Japan, TOTO has over 35 years of experience in manufacturing the shower toilet, which has also become known the world over as the “Japanese toilet”.
A shower toilet is another term for a toilet with an integrated bidet. Other commonly used terms include toilet shower, Japanese toilet, and wash and dry toilet. The shower toilet first became widespread in Japan in the 1980s. Today, over 65% of Japanese homes have a shower toilet. TOTO has the most years of experience in producing shower toilets with its legendary WASHLET. The shower toilet from TOTO is the most advanced of its kind available anywhere in the world today.
While part of Japanese households for years now, wash and dry toilets are still new to European homes – but are becoming increasingly popular. The warm water cleansing feature leaves people feeling especially clean after using the Japanese toilet. The special WASHLET wand jet system allows for easy, hygienic intimate cleansing both in the front and rear. People can adjust the pressure, position and temperature of the toilet water spray according to their personal preferences. The heated seat and odour-eliminating deodorizer make using the toilet even more comfortable.
Bathing culture has always played a major role in Japanese culture. As such, the standards for hygiene and comfort in the bathroom are especially high. TOTO is the market leader in Japan, and is always working to optimise its products. For this reason, hygiene and comfort are major priorities when it comes to WASHLET as well.
On the one hand, the Japanese toilet helps people improve their personal hygiene in a very convenient, comfortable way. The wand jet for the TOTO toilet water spray is made of silicone-based material, making it impossible for waste to accumulate.
Only TOTO shower toilets offer maximum hygiene in every respect. In addition to the higher position of the wand jet above the toilet bowl, TOTO technologies ensure that all WASHLET models are as clean with every use as if brand new. The wand jet cannot come into contact with urine, faeces or any dirty flush water. TOTO’s shower toilet also has a flap to protect the wand jet from all waste material.
But that’s not all! The wand jet in the TOTO shower toilet cleans itself automatically inside and out, both before and after use. The silicone-based material used for the jet prevents dirt or waste from sticking. The wand jet extends at a 43° angle to prevent any faeces from falling on it during cleansing.
These are just a few of the many technologies available in our wash and dry toilets. Read about even more benefits of the TOTO shower toilet here.
