Toto Washlet sales top 40 million units globally
Toto, a plumbing industry leader with annual sales of some $5.1 billion, announced on Wednesday 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 their 1980 launch in Japan.
During the past 35 years, Toto has expanded its Washlet sales around the globe - and today these revolutionary personal cleansing systems are available on all seven continents, in countries as diverse as the US., Germany, France, Korea, the Philippines, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Taiwan, India, Brazil, Mexico, China, Singapore, Korea, and the UK - to name but a few.
Washlets use pure, clean water - and myriad technological innovations - to make their users cleaner and more refreshed after a bathroom break by reinventing the humble toilet seat as a warm water personal cleansing system. When its cleansing cycle is activated, a streamlined wand with Wonderwave technology extends from the 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.
Committed to People-First Innovation, Toto advances are designed that meet people's real world needs. To this end, the company introduced what it says is the first use of electrolysed 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 - a process that renders the bowl approximately 80% better than dry porcelain.
eWater+ is 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.
Toto 's innovative new Connect+ System neatly conceals the Washlet's power cord and water supply hose for a clean installation. To achieve this, TOTO pre-drilled holes in Connect+ toilets behind the bowl (near the seat bolt holes), which enables the Washlet power cord and water supply hose to pass easily through, hiding them from view.
Concealing the Connect+ Washlet power cord and water supply hose offers homeowners an elegant seamless look that enhances any bathroom decor. Comprised of specially designed Washlets and water-efficient Tornado Flush toilets, Toto 's innovative new Connect+ System offers homeowners superior design aesthetics, water savings, technology, cleanliness and over 40 different combination possibilities.
