The TOTO bidet is one of the first bidets to come to the U.S., but it has come a long way since it was first introduced in Europe in the 1950s. In the United States, most consumers use a flush toilet which allows squatting and standing – or lying down – on the toilet, as well as the use of paper towels. However, some companies, including Japanese-based TOTO, have led a recent revolution that combines both the toilet and the bidet into one unit.
One of the advantages of using TOTO bidets is that they are much more convenient than conventional toilets. This is because instead of having to sit down and get out of the bathtub to go to the bathroom, a person can just lie down and let the TOTO toilet do the work for them. In fact, with a few quick clicks, a person could be completely in the water and ready to go in seconds. As someone who frequently uses public restrooms, I know that many bathrooms are simply too small to allow even a small toilet to fit in.
It’s no secret that a small bathroom is difficult to maneuver around in and also can become quite claustrophobic. Many people will avoid public restrooms because of the small area available for maneuvering around, and this is especially true in a crowded city or campus settings. On top of that, a person can have problems flushing or using a traditional toilet because of the limited space available to them. A TOTO bidet makes it possible for a person to easily maneuver around a small bathroom, which allows them to not only access the toilet more easily, but also to enjoy the comfort of using it more.
Another benefit of using a bidet, even if the person isn’t using it, is that they are often much safer than a traditional toilet. Unlike a regular toilet, a bidet doesn’t use suction cups which can cause pressure sores and other irritation to sensitive areas of the body. The design of a TOTO bidet eliminates the need for suction cups, thus eliminating the risk of injury. This is especially important if the person has a large body or is overweight. Because the TOTO bidet can be used at a lower pressure, even people with delicate skin can take advantage of the pressure relief that is offered by these products.
The most recent bidets to come to the U.S. include the ability to change the seat of the seat itself. This has the benefit of allowing a person to be able to wash their legs while sitting down. While it may seem strange to some, a person has the freedom to wash their legs while sitting on a regular toilet, especially when they are not sitting on the seat, the convenience of the change in seat is worth the little extra cost. In addition to washing one’s legs, the seat itself can be cleaned and dried as well, giving someone the chance to wash their entire body at once. The seat is usually made of a comfortable material and doesn’t leak, making it much easier to rinse and dry than the conventional toilet seat. Most seats are also very easy to clean and require no special cleaning at all.
Because TOTO bidets have eliminated the need for toilet seats, they have also eliminated the mess left behind by conventional toilet seats. Because a person can cleanse their body and seat at once, they are often able to use the same products and methods for cleaning and drying as they would for any other toilet. While there are some people who worry about having to wait for a long time for their hands to dry after using the toilet, they will find that the TOTO products typically dry up within a matter of seconds. Many of the products used in a regular toilet are actually designed to dry out quickly, but a TOTO bidet makes sure that the hand and body of the person being washed are completely dry within seconds of the person taking a seat.
