Brand Highlight: TOTO
TOTO offers a complete line of commercial and decorative plumbing fixtures and fittings, faucets, accessories, shower and flush valves, as well as lavatories, toilets, Air Baths, and urinals. The Japanese company began in 1917 in Kitakyushu, Japan. In its more than 90 years of business, TOTO has earned a reputation for products that seamlessly integrate performance, conservation, technology, and innovation.
TOTO’s business philosophy of “people-first innovation” responds to customer needs and desires, which is why their money- and water-saving bath fixtures never compromise performance or beauty. Known for innovative technology, TOTO creates “products that connect you with water in ways that enrich the flow of your everyday life.”
One of TOTO’s most recognized achievements is its line of Washlets. Since their launch in 1980, these personal cleansing systems have grown in popularity, thanks to “myriad technological innovations.” Washlets use pure, clean water from the home’s fresh water supply to “make their users cleaner, happier, more refreshed than they have ever felt after a bathroom break by reinventing the humble toilet seat as a warm water personal cleansing system.” Other features include a heated SoftClose seat and warm-air drying cycle. New in 2012, Washlet G500 includes the personal cleansing system on a compact, sensor-operated toilet that opens, closes, and flushes automatically. G500 also features an illuminated touch pad that memorizes personal preferences.
For luxurious bathing, TOTO offers Neorest Airbath with HydroHands. Control water temperature, volume, and depth with three programmable preferred bath settings. Other luxurious details include a soothing waterfall cascade, hand spray, and space for two bathers. The bathtub features HydroHands, a therapeutic massage with the kinetic benefits of personal touch. HydroHands produces two types of water massage, one of which uses pressure to replicate deep-tissue massage.
TOTO provides a total luxury experience in the bathroom. The company delivers “superbly designed, high-performance lifestyle enhancing” products.
