(Morrow, GA) January 19, 2016 — Recently, TOTO achieved a major global milestone with its popular WASHLET line of personal cleansing systems. To date, the company has sold more than 40 million WASHLET worldwide since their 1980 launch in Japan. To celebrate, TOTO introduces the new WASHLET G400, which integrates the WASHLET personal cleansing system with a sleek compact sensor-operated toilet.
The sensor-activated WASHLET G400’s toilet offers users the height of convenience and luxury by opening, closing, and flushing automatically. Its Universal Height design facilitates ease of use.
Like others in the WASHLET family, when the WASHLET G400’s cleansing cycle is activated, a streamlined wand extends from beneath the seat to provide a soothing warm flow of aerated water, with oscillating and pulsating options. Drawn directly from the home's fresh water supply, the WASHLET G400 always delivers warm water that is pure and clean. Once the cleansing cycle is completed, the user may engage the drying cycle, which uses warm air to gently dry the area, protecting the environment by reducing the need for toilet tissue.
Its easy read, touch-pad remote control memorizes users’ personal preferences and may be mounted to the wall in a magnetic cradle.
Dual-Max 3D Tornado Flushing System
The WaterSense labelled WASHLET G400’s Dual-Max 3D Tornado gravity-fed, high-efficiency flushing system enables users to select the volume of water needed to clear the bowl—1.28 gpf for the full flush or 0.9 gpf for the light—which saves money and water. By simultaneously releasing three powerful water jets inside its bowl, the WASHLET G400’s Dual-Max 3D Tornado system creates a whirlpool effect that removes waste completely and cleans the entire bowl’s surface more thoroughly and quietly than any other flushing system.
In addition to its Dual-Max Tornado flush, the WASHLET G400’s superior bowl cleansing action results from its rimless design and CeFiONtect glaze, a nano-technology that creates a super-slippery surface, preventing visible and invisible waste from adhering to the bowl. CeFiONtect's ionized-barrier helps keep the bowl cleaner, longer.
The WASHLET G400’s elegant skirted design conceals the trapway, creating a base that is easy to clean and maintain.
Pricing and Availability
The WASHLET G400's manufacturer's suggested retail price is $3,300. It is available throughout North America at TOTO-partner showrooms.
