Pure Luxury: New NEOREST® Smart Bidet Toilets
TOTO's new NEOREST Smart Bidet Toilets offer visionary technology exquisitely designed for consumers’ comfort and well-being. TOTO’s NEOREST line is born of science and the company’s belief in the importance of everyday wellness to rejuvenate consumers’ bodies and minds. With its new NEOREST LS, NEOREST AS, and NEOREST RS Smart Bidet Toilets, TOTO brings a new form of pure luxury to life.
New NEOREST LS Smart Bidet Toilet
Winner of two highly coveted international design awards – the Red Dot Design Award and iF Design Award – TOTO’s new NEOREST LS expands the NEOREST line of premium smart bidet toilets. NEOREST LS is designed to focus on elegance and comfort, creating a bath environment with hotel-like luxury and spa-like features. The NEOREST LS offers a new design, which provides a modern yet classic aesthetic that fits both modern and traditional bathroom interior design.
The new NEOREST LS adds a bit of fun glamour with a new wave-inspired design accentuated by new metallic decorative trim and matching remote control. With options that include silver, nickel, and black, the NEOREST LS allows consumers and designers to express themselves by coordinating with other elements in their bath, such as faucets and paper holders, to bring a sense of unity and harmony to the bathroom’s interior design.
The NEOREST LS’s stick-style remote control has a simple, sophisticated design that evokes a sense of luxury. It matches beautifully with the metallic accents on the smart toilet’s body. The full-skirted design offers a clean look reinforcing TOTO’s promise of luxury and quality while making maintenance a breeze.
New NEOREST AS Smart Bidet Toilet
TOTO’s new NEOREST AS Smart Bidet Toilet is a prestigious iF Design Award winner. The NEOREST AS offers an elegant linear design to accentuate any bath space with its classic, clean lines. Its sophisticated silhouette with a full-cover lid and precise design lines provides a distinctive, dignified presence. With its sleek, modern design, the NEOREST AS blends seamlessly with a variety of bathroom styles, elevating their aesthetic. Its sense of luxury is underscored by its chic stick-style remote control.
NEOREST RS Smart Bidet Toilet
The new NEOREST RS Smart Bidet Toilet’s design focuses on elegant simplicity and a gently rounded aesthetic. Winner of the celebrated Red Dot Design Award, its soft, gentle curves give this sophisticated, clean-line design a sense of refinement and unobtrusive familiarity. In addition, the new NEOREST RS offers a handsome new white, ergonomic block-style remote control design with an illuminated touchpad to personalize consumers’ experience.
New NEOREST Advanced Cleaning Technology: EWATER+® for the Bidet Seat’s Underside
Among their numerous advanced technologies, the NEOREST LS, NEOREST AS, and updated NEOREST NX provide EWATER+ for the bidet seat’s underside. After use, EWATER+ automatically sprays the NEOREST’s under-seat front to prevent waste accumulation and stubborn yellow stains, reducing the need for harsh cleaning chemicals, which benefits the environment.
With the need for cleanliness and hygiene at the forefront of consumers’ minds, TOTO's new NEOREST Smart Bidet Toilets offer advanced cleaning technologies that work synergistically to keep the toilet bowl fresh and clean at all times:
- PREMIST®: The bowl’s interior is sprayed with a fine water mist to reduce waste’s ability to stick to its surface, which results in a better clean with every flush.
- CEFIONTECT®: TOTO’s super-smooth, nano-technology glaze seals the porcelain with an ionized barrier, creating a super-slippery, non-porous surface that leaves waste nowhere to cling.
- TORNADO FLUSH® SYSTEM: The rimless bowl design and 2.5-diameter trapway use 100% of the water to remove waste effectively and clean every inch of the bowl and rim. TOTO’s TORNADO FLUSH system optimizes water conservation (1.28 or 1.0 gallons per flush) while setting a high bar in quiet world-class flushing performance.
- EWATER+: The cleanliness of the bowl’s surface, the interior and exterior of the WASHLET and NEOREST bidet wands, and the new NEOREST seat’s underside are ensured by automatically misting them with electrolyzed water, a well-known cleaning agent, which reduces the need for harsh cleaning chemicals, which benefits the planet. Electrolyzed water is produced by electrolysis of the chloride ions in ordinary tap water. It is completely free of added chemicals and harsh cleaning agents. Over time, EWATER+ returns to its original state as regular tap water.
New GB Shower Series Rain Showers
TOTO introduces two new overhead rain shower designs to its GB Shower Series – square and round. The GB Shower Series Square Rain Shower measures 10 inches and is available with water-conserving flow rates of 1.75 GPM or 2.5 GPM.
The GB Shower Series Round Rain Shower is available in designs that measure 10 inches or 12 inches. It flows at an eco-friendly 1.75 GPM or 2.5 GPM.
TOTO’s new GB Shower Series Rain Showers offer its COMFORT WAVE® water technology, which uses a unique nozzle design to add larger drops of water to the shower for a comfortable experience with just the right amount of stimulation. As a result, bathers feel as if they are encased in far more water than they are actually using. This makes their shower experience extremely pleasurable as it honors our water supply by reducing consumption.
New GB Shower Series Body Spray with New Water Technology
TOTO’s new GB Shower Series Round Body Spray measures four inches in diameter and flows at a water-saving 1.5 GPM. It features two TOTO water technologies for the ideal showering experience. The new INTENSE WAVE® provides a more vigorous shower experience. Ideal for relaxing tired muscles or kickstarting your day, while COMFORT WAVE promotes recovery and regeneration any time of day.
Switching from one mode to the other is easy; simply rotate the body spray’s interior from right to left using the handy grip.
New Commercial Toilet with TORNADO FLUSH
TOTO’s revolutionary new commercial toilet features its market-leading TORNADO FLUSH system, which provides a powerful nozzle to create 360 degrees of centrifugal, cyclonic rinsing action that reduces waste buildup and keeps the bowl cleaner as it effectively removes waste completely. TOTO’s new commercial toilet is available in wall-mount and floor-mount models.
Using only 1.0 or 1.28 gallons per flush (GPF), TOTO’s high-efficiency TORNADO FLUSH system is more effective in one flush than most commercial toilets with multiple flushes. Its modern hole-free concave rim design means that TOTO’s new high-efficiency commercial toilet performs consistently and is easy to clean. It is also available in a 1.6 GPF model.
TOTO’s new commercial toilet also offers its CEFIONTECT, its super-smooth, nano-technology glaze that seals the porcelain with an ionized barrier, creating a super-slippery, non-porous surface that leaves waste nowhere to cling. It is also available without CEFIONTECT.
Newly Improved ECOPOWER Flush Valve for Commercial Toilets
TOTO has improved its touchless exposed and concealed ECOPOWER Flush Valve for commercial toilets. The new ECOPOWER Flush Valve functions effectively at 25 psi, making it ideal for buildings with lower water pressure. TOTO has also improved its sensor eye’s strength and detection range. The new ECOPOWER Flush Valve’s sensor eye is now 1.2 times stronger and has a broader detection range of 39-3/8th inches.
ECOPOWER technology generates electricity each time water spins a small internal turbine. This auto-generated electrical energy is stored in capacitors that power the flush valve. There is no minimum usage requirement. TOTO’s ECOPOWER hydroelectric technology generates power during use. No need for hardwiring to the building’s electrical system or routine battery replacement, which is costly and hazardous to the environment.
