The automatic machines are used in the WASHLET Factory in order to improve production efficacy. The advanced machines are accurate and effective, for example, installing the air condition in the WASHLET assembly area, and installing automatic WASHLET test machines. That would decrease human errors of the staff during the checking process. TOTO products are checked 100% of every single piece in order to ensure that we provide our customers the most high-quality products.
Apart from providing high quality products and advanced technologies, TOTO announces the purpose to revolutionize the culture of using toilet called “RESTROOM REVOLUTION”. We truly believe that a good restroom does not depend on the comfortable toilet or only the elegant design, but it depends on every single detail. TORNADO FLUSH – powerful flushing system which washes 360° inside the RIMLESS toilet bowl using less water. No water splashes out can reduces bacteria and the stain which cause the disturbing odors. RIMLESS helps you clean the toilet bowl easier. CEFIONTECT is an ultra-smooth ceramic glaze that coats the toilet bowl leaving no place for waste to gain a foothold. Using no chemicals or cleaning agents, EWATER+ washes the wand and toilet bowl where waste and bacteria tend to accumulate and produce stains that can become permanent. All hygienic technologies were meticulously developed to enhance your normal daily routines and your quality of life to be more perfect.
