Bathroom talks are considered taboo here in the American household. You get in, do your business and don’t think about it. The idea of researching a toilet that would be beneficial for your bathroom time has probably never crossed your mind. If you are planning to replace your toilet, you may want to consider investing in a smart toilet. A smart toilet may sound strange at first, but there are a lot of benefits that can come out of investing in one. They are expensive but they can save you money down the road and keep you feeling clean. Nothing feels better than being clean and refreshed as you go throughout the day.

Automatic Flushing

Smart toilets can flush without being touched. If you live in a household of people who always forget to flush the toilet, this feature could save you the pain of being greeted with an unwanted surprise as you are stumbling into the bathroom in the early morning. A smart toilet can either sense when a body has moved away from the toilet and flush or activate a flush by waving your hand in front of its sensor.

Whichever one you pick, the perk of having a sensor instead of a handle is that germs won’t get transferred from hands to the toilet and then to the next person who flushes. So, not only is there the convenience of not having to flush, you get to protect your family and yourself from bacteria.

Reduced Plumbing Issues

Traditional toilets can be subject to multiple plumbing issues. Clogged toilets, sewer smells and toilet leaks are among the common issues that traditional toilets will always face. Smart toilets are equipped with technology that can greatly reduce these types of plumbing issues. They not only prevent clogs, but they can also sense them before you overflow the toilet.

Smart toilets will also stop you from flushing the toilet if it’s clogged. This helps keep water levels in the bowl low until you’ve fixed the problem – ultimately getting rid of overflow.

Automatic Cleaning

This feature is definitely a favorite. Smart toilets are made up of a smooth ceramic that has a non-stick coating preventing mineral and waste buildup. These toilets also feature ultraviolet lights that kill odor-causing bacteria and have automatic cleaning cycles that keep things fresh and clean. You won’t have to clean your smart toilet as much and it will be an easy task to accomplish when you do. Throw away those harsh toilet cleaning materials – you won’t need them when you have your smart toilet.

Water Savings

Smart toiles use as little as 0.6 gallons per flush, which is one gallon less than what a traditional toilet uses. They sense how much water is needed and flush using just the right amount. This will greatly reduce the water consumption in your household and cut back on utility bills.

Other smart toilet features include:

  • Water spray and air dryer
  • Nightlight
  • Slow closing lid
  • Bluetooth and MP3 capabilities for music while you go
  • Foot warmer
  • Remote control
  • Emergency flushing system for power outages
  • Massaging bidet wash
  • Heated seating
  • Built-in sensors that alert you of plumbing issues
