What is a Smart Toilet?
Whether you’re remodeling your bathroom or you’re just considering a new toilet, smart toilets are worth a look. Not only are they cool and super techy, but they also make your life a lot easier.
Smart WCs flush without being touched. Each toilet has a sensor that activates the flushing mechanism. It senses when a body has moved away from the toilet and activates a flush.
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.
It stops you from flushing if the toilet is clogged, which keeps water levels in the bowl low.
Water savings and power sources
Smart toilets save water, but they also use electricity, so their environmental benefit is questionable. But you’ll see a difference in your water consumption. Smart toilets sense how much water is needed and flush using just the right amount. The smaller flushes can use as little as 0.6 gallons per flush (GPF). A basic toilet that doesn’t have smart flush technology uses around 1.6 gallons per flush.
