Homeowners in the U.S. may know the reputation of Kohler, but the truth is TOTO is actually the largest and most respected plumbing products manufacturer in the world.
Toto produces products for the bathroom only, so their entire energy is dedicated to producing the absolute best material for that specific use; and we believe it shows.
Since its origin in 1917, Toto has been producing superbly designed, high performance plumbing products that are the “spec of choice” by designers of the finest buildings worldwide.
Toto toilets, sinks, tubs and showers are commonly found in the very best hotels, office buildings, and restaurants. Professional designers choose Toto for their unmatched performance, durability, and quality of finish. Reliability translates into reduced maintenance costs and superior performance
Today, Toto products for the home are available to discriminating homeowners in the U.S. and we are truly pleased to feature Toto as a one of our premier lines at JKeats.
Toto designs are graceful, the quality and finish of their vitreous china is simply the worlds best, and their technology is absolutely state of the art. If you appreciate sophisticated style along with exceptional performance, you will be well served by considering Toto.
A Toto Advantage - Sana Gloss - A Superlative Gloss Finish
TOTO’s patented and amazingly super-smooth Sana Gloss Glaze Finish minimizes debris, mold and bacteria from sticking to porous, ceramic surfaces. We think of it as “Teflon for your toilet”. The Sana Gloss Finish helps keep the toilet and sink fresher and cleaner longer which means less staining and fewer cleanings.
How Sana Gloss works: Toto engineers developed a proprietary process to seal china with an ionized barrier creating a super-smooth surface that prevents particles from adhering to the ceramic. At the same time the process also adds a catalyzed ion barrier which actually repels particles away. The combination of these features means a ceramic finish that changes the foundation of conventional glazing, providing the best possible surface for bathroom use.
Does it really work and is it worth the extra money? Sana Gloss is an added finish and does cost a little bit more. Our opinion is it really does work and especially pays off if you have hard water as it will help reduce mineral staining. When it comes to toilets, this is a real plus!
Awesome Flush Technologies
In the 1980’s many states issued water conservation legislation requiring a maximum 1.6 gallon-per-flush (GPF) and many manufacturers simply reduced the size of their tanks, which resulted in poor performance and multiple flushes.
Perhaps it’s because in Japan natural resources are scarce, but TOTO had already been developing low-volume flushing systems for decades and is the world leader in water conservation technologies for the bathroom. Toto offers a number of different unique flushing technologies with specific benefits to match your interest and objective.
Toto G Max Flushing System - “So what goes down - Stays down”
If what you want is super powerful flushing, Toto’s G-Max’s toilets are for you. They feature an extra-wide 3” flush valve creating a quicker, more forceful flush.
A larger 2-1/8” glazed trapway also offers increased flow, drawing water into the bowl more quickly and then away more forcefully to prevent clogging. Plus an extra large siphon jet which generates unmatched power for one-flush superiority.
When it comes to making sure what goes down, stays down. Toto’s G Max is the Master.
Toto “Double Cyclone” Flushing System – More Flush with Less Water
It’s a scientific fact—gravity plus significant centrifugal force will spin most anything away efficiently. The Toto Double Cyclone system was developed to improve the flushing efficiency of water saving lower GPF toilets.
Like a cyclone in nature, the Double Cyclone flushing system combines the power of water with centrifugal force action to create a more powerful 1.28 GPF that maximizes cleaning action.
Double Cyclone toilets features two (2) nozzles, instead of the standard rim holes, which use water more efficiently for a better rim and bowl wash. This results in less trapped dirt and bacteria and less cleaning. (Especially if coupled with the Sana Glaze finish)
The dual-nozzle water propulsion system allows more water to be directed to the siphon for a more powerful flush.
Toto E-Maz Flushing System - A Quiet Approach to Water Saving
Pressure assist toilets are effective in disposal but can be noisy and are made with more moving parts.
An alternative is Toto’s E-Max Flushing System which is a simple and quiet solution for effectively flushing 1.28 gallons.
Utilizing the same proven engineering as the 1.6 GPF G-Max flushing system, the 1.28 GPF E-Max reinforces TOTO’s performance reputation while offering an additional water savings of 20%.
E-Max features a Wide 3" flush valve and 2-1/8" glazed trapway to optimize waste passage (similar to the G Max design).
A Pilot-operated fill valve to ensure quiet operation and a clean shutoff at any water pressure.
An Extra-large siphon jet which works in conjunction with the large glazed trapway; the siphon jet pulls away waste with incredible force
Toto Dual-Max Flushing System – The maximum in water conservation
If your goal is maximum water conservation, the Toto Dual Max System is for you.
The TOTO Dual-Max flushing system is the leading choice for dual flush performance and conservation because it doesn't sacrifice performance for conservation like many other dual-flush solutions in the market.
An integrated control located within easy reach allows you to select the appropriate amount of water usage from 0.9 GPF to 1.6 GPF per flush.
TOTO Aquia® toilets with Dual-Max flushing feature a clean, skirted bowl design, and the unmatched convergence of style and efficiency.
Toto Bathroom Faucet - EcoPower Technology - One Amazing Faucet
Want a faucet with on-off sensors but hate the idea of having electrical connections at your water source or keeping up batteries?
Toto’s Eco-Power Technology actually harnesses self-generating hydropower from the faucet flow itself to create an electrical current that is stored in rechargeable cells that power the Smart Sensor System of either the faucet or valve. That’s right, a tiny self generating turbine built right into the faucet system itself. Genius!
TOTO is the only manufacturer with this proprietary sensor technology. EcoPower replenishes its charge with as few as five uses a day and is optimized at a mere 10 uses per day.
Eco Power features and Benefits
- A compact infrared sensor; one of the smallest sensors in the world
- Aesthetically pleasing design, available in several different styles
- Self-setting detection range
- Spout senses users very accurately
- 10-second cycle or 60-second cycle options
- 10-second cycles use 0.17 gallons per cycle—or a maximum of 1.06 gallons per minute—32 percent below the baseline of 0.25 gallons per cycle
- Low flow 10-second cycle uses 0.09 gallons per cycle—or 0.5 gallons per minute—64 percent below the baseline of 0.25 gallons per cycle
- Infrared sensors well hidden from vandals in the tip of the spout
- Single supply and thermal mixing models available
- Laminar flow for a fuller, more pleasing feel
- Thermostatic faucets precisely temper water and regulate its flow
Less Damage, Easier Access
EcoPower faucets are specifically designed to keep controls and components below deck—and out of the way of both accidental and intended damage. And all components are easily and readily accessible when required. The faucet has an easy access screen to protect working components from debris and natural waterborne elements.
Putting Water to Work
EcoPower faucets and flushometer valves put water to work by supplying the very energy they consume. The flow of water spins the high-efficiency turbine to both create and store power. Each turn of the turbine powers and recharges capacitors that power the sensor and solenoid valve, which are backed up by the battery. With as few as 10 uses a day, the backup battery itself is seldom used and can last up to 19 years. This translates into reduced electricity use, lower maintenance costs with frequent disposable battery replacement and better ecology with hands-free, automatic-shut-off functionality.
