Cool Toilets That Flush the Old Toilets Away

Moden Toilet

There is one thing all of us humans have in common. It doesn't matter where you live, how much money you have or what your educational achievements are. At one time or another during the day, we all need to use the restroom. For some it is a rather embarrassing topic and for others, well they just don't really think about it that much. The fact is that it's just part of life. No matter what end of the spectrum you are on the fact still remains, the restroom, or more specifically, the toilet is here to stay. The good news is there are some new technologies out there that may change the way we think of our throne rooms. 

Not all Toilets are the same

In most parts of the world when you think of a toilet, you think of a white porcelain fixture with a large tank attached to it and a place to sit down and take care of businesses. However, for some the standard ordinary toilet isn't good enough. Designing a toilet to do much more than just flush is what the Japanese have been doing for years now. If fact the technology is so advanced it would make just about anyone jealous that doesn't have one of these cool toilets in their home or office.

Ingenuity at its finest

There is a company that is probably better known for making cool electronic devices such as flat screen televisions, cameras, and stereo equipment than for their toilets but they do make toilets and pretty cool toilets at that. You have probably heard of a very well-known Japanese company called Panasonic. That's right, Panasonic just so happens to makes really cool toilets. How cool, well one of the more advanced toilets that Panasonic currently has available on the market is their Arauno V tankless toilet. That's right, tankless toilets, now that's ingenuity.  Panasonic toilets have a bunch of amazing features that include an automatic seat that raises and closes when you come or leave a room. That alone is worth its weight in gold. If you think that is cool, they also have features available like heated seats to warm your bottom on those cold nights. If you are one of those who like to spend a little bit more time in the restroom then you can take advantage of the built in Mp3 player and listen to your favorite music while you take care of business.

Making a comfortable seat

Panasonic has built-in cooler toilet features that will be of interest to you. Have you ever thought it would be cool to have a place to rest your arms will sitting on the thrown. Think about it; your favorite comfort recliner has armrests, your favorite sofa has armrest, shouldn't my toilet have armrest? Well Panasonic thought the same thing. Yes, you can now rest your arms on the built-in armrests. Not only does the armrest provide a comfortable place for you to rest your wearing arms but they also are useful as a support to help you get out of your seat. If this wasn't enough then don't let me forget to tell you about the retracting tube that sticks out in the bowl after you are done and spray water on your underside to clean you off. You can control the water spray from smooth stream to pulsating and from narrow to wide depending on what is more comfortable.

Well now that you are clean, all you have to do is push the dry button on the controller and warm air will dry you off. There is no need for toilet paper. That will save you a chunk of money every year and no more worries about running out of toilet paper. Now that's a cool toilet. Just when you thought that was it, wait, there's more. The Panasonic toilets, depending on the model, are equipped with an optional built in bidet and optional wash sink, which will save you time, money and space.

When cleanliness matters

I don't know anyone who like to clean the toilet, no worries Panasonic thought that one through as well. They have optional models which have a self-cleaning feature that cleans itself with a detergent. After each flush it leaves the bowl clean and fresh by eliminating stains, mold, mildew, and bathroom odor.

Thinking through the costs

The Panisonic Arauno V model, one of their many toilet models, is made of an organic glass based material and only uses .08 gallons per flush, which is about half the water the more conventional toilets use cutting your toilet water bill in half.

The price of these toilets are going to be a bit more than you may see at the big box stores but you are definitely getting what you are paying for. The Panasonic toilets for example can run between $1499 to $2399 depending on the model and features you choose.

There are other companies that compete with Panasonic, like the TOTO Neorest 500 so if you're looking for a cool toilet make sure to shop online or your nearest retailor for the best make and model to fit your personal needs.
