Toto Washlet Toilets & How They Work

Have you ever wondered why the fuss over bidet toilet seats? The Toto WASHLET toilet seat is a highly advanced water-clensing system for your toilet that leaves you clean and dry after each session.

This  “smart” toilet seat fits nicely into any household keen on smart-home devices. The seat features a built-in seat warmer, an automatic slow-close lid, a washer, a dryer… even a deodorizer to chase away unpleasant smells!

Toto’s WASHLET toilet seats fit nicely on a range of Toto toilets, of course… but they’ll also adjust to many different styles of elongated or round-front toilets by a variety of manufacturers.

Here’s how a Toto WASHLET works:

  • Toto’s advanced design includes a contoured heated seat with an integrated sensor that maintains desired settings between 86 and 104 degrees F.
  • With the touch of a button, a cleansing nozzle extends from under the seat, offering soothing warm-water cleansing. Again, water temps are set between 86 and 104 degrees F.
  • Using a remote control, the nozzle can be adjusted to either oscillate or pulsate.
  • The nozzle’s self-cleaning function cleans and sanitizes the entire nozzle between each use.
  • Hands-free drying offers the ease and comfort of a temperature-adjustable warm-air dryer.
  • Toto’s soft-close lid closes gently after use, eliminating toilet seat slam. Some models offer sensors for automatic opening and closing of the lid.
