TOTO Washlet: The World’s Best Bidet

TOTO’s Washlet is the #1 selling electronic bidet seat on the market. TOTO has sold over 50 million Washlet units worldwide. Anyone can use a bidet. They promote good hygiene and they are comfortable and easy to use. Oftentimes, they are used by the following groups of individuals: People with disabilities or mobility issues, seniors, people recovering from surgical procedures, and anyone that enjoys using a bidet.

Washlet’s are commonly found in the following facilities:

  • Healthcare Buildings
  • Senior Living Facilities
  • Hospitals
  • Hospice Care Centers
  • Physical & Occupational Therapy
  • Birthing Centers
  • And in individual’s homes.

All-Inclusive Restroom Design

Facilities that experience a high volume of elderly or disabled persons should design restrooms that go above and beyond the requirements set forth by the American Disabilities Act. In fact, toileting is the #1 reason people concede their independence and go to care facilities. This means that in order to better serve these populations in public facilities, items like Washlets should be installed to help people with disabilities use the facility. Buildings that design restrooms with the recognition that people with disabilities are included are commended for their inclusivity, and appreciated by all, not only those with disabilities that need it. 


Washlet Benefits

Hygiene – Water is a more effective way to cleanse after using the toilet.

Comfort – Washlet bidets feature an adjustable spray and temperature control for a customized cleanse.

Environment – TOTO’s Washlets come with Premist and EWATER+® cleaning functions that reduce the frequency of cleaning and harsh chemicals often used to clean toilet bowls.

TOTO WASHLET FAQs:

Q: What is included in my Washlet purchase?

A: Included with your unit are the following items:

  • Washlet
  • Remote
  • Mounting bracket
  • Tee connector

Q: Are Washlets easy to install?

A: Yes. Installing a Washlet is just like replacing your toilet seat. 

  1. Simply remove the existing seat. 
  2. Install the base plate using the same holes the toilet seat was installed on.
  3. Slide the Washlet in place
  4. Connect to the water supply. 

Q: Who are Washlets appropriate for?

A: People with stroke and brain injuries, amputations and disabilities, pre and postpartum care, back and spinal cord injuries, people who suffer from frequent UTI and hemorrhoids, geriatric care and home health, arthritis, alzheimer, ALS, MS, and cancer patients, incontinence and perineal care. 


Q: How do I install a Washlet on a commercial toilet?

A: Washlets can be installed on a bowl with a top spud or rear outlet option. Two different adapters need to be installed to be used with a floor mounted bowl: 

  • Option 1: TCH314FV – This enables installation in the center of the tailpiece. A hole would be drilled and installed. 
  • Option 2: THU468 – This option would be used with a separate waterline installed. 

Q: Do Washlets require a power outlet?

A: Yes. There must be a power outlet available near the toilet. It used the standard AC 120V, 60Hz. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a three wire extension cord that has a three blade grounding plug, and a three-slot receptacle outlet that will accept the plug on the product.


Q: How do I clean my washlet?

A: Washlets have a self-cleaning wand so cleaning should only need to occur roughly once a month or so, depending on usage. The following cleaning items are approved for use: detergents or non-abrasive surface cleaners, a wet cloth to clean on and around plastic parts, and for hard water, a vinegar or lime dissolving cleaning and a non-scratch scour pad made for porcelain. 

What NOT to use: Cleansers, polishing powders, or detergents that include gritty or coarse particles that could scratch surfaces, a dry cloth or toilet paper on plastic parts, and abrasive nylon scrubbing brushes are all items that should NOT be used to clean Washlet components. 


Q: How do I clean the wand?

A: Press the wand cleaning ON/OFF button on the back of the remote. The wand will extend and water sprays out for cleaning. The wand then automatically retracts after 5 minutes. Wipe the wand with a soft, wet cloth. Do not pull, push, or press the wand with excessive force. 

Sloan Optimix Anti-Scald Faucets

Sloan has just launched a new faucet line! Introducing Sloan Optimix Faucets, featuring anti-scald technology. This new technology has been added to some of Sloan’s most popular faucet models, creating new model variations that ensure a safe water temperature for each and every hand washing experience.

What is Optimix Technology?

Optimix technology is an integrated thermostatic mixing valve located within the faucet that mixes hot and cold water to create the perfect, not-too-hot and not-too-cold water temperature. The water is mixed as it goes through the spout of the faucet to provide comfortable and safe water temperatures at the sink for all patrons.

Setting the temperature:
The facility manager or end user controls the temperature of the water flowing out of the faucet by turning a small lever located on the right side of the faucet base. This control lever can be removed after setting the desired temperature in facilities where vandal-resistance is a priority.

ASSE 1070 Compliance:
Optimix Faucets are ASSE 1070 compliant. This remains true even in the event of a cold water failure. 

Sloan Optimix Faucets

What Facility Types Need Anti-Scald Faucets?

Every public facility should provide safe water to patrons and employees. This is especially true in facilities where children, the elderly, and disabled individuals may be present. Schools, hospitals, and nursing homes should all be outfitted with anti-scald faucets. However, water that is too hot can scald anyone, not just children, the elderly, and disabled people. This is why we recommend anti-scald faucets be installed in all buildings, especially commercial facilities. Installing faucets like Optimix is an easy way to guarantee that every person using that faucet will be comfortable and safe.

Which Optima Faucets have Optimix Technology? 

Optimix technology has been added to the following Sloan faucet models: the Optima EAF-200, 250, and 275. These new faucets are known as Optimix Faucets. These are all deck-mounted, mid body faucets. The EAF-200 is hardwired, the EAF-250 is battery-powered, and the EAF-275 is solar-powered.

What sets Optimix anti-scald faucets apart from other anti-scald options?

  • Lower Installation Costs. Since Optimix faucets include the thermostatic mixing valve within the faucet, the installation is simplified, reducing labor time and costs by up to 30%. 
  • Safe water 100% of the time. Optimix faucets dispense comfortable water at all times, unlike regular faucets that may dispense water that is too hot, and therefore unsafe. This happens most often when cold water is running low. Optimix keeps water temperatures safe even when there is a cold water failure. 
  • Durable and beautiful fixture design. Optima faucets are arguably Sloan’s best faucet model. They have been around for decades because they are built with the best materials (solid cast brass), and feature timeless designs that are aesthetically pleasing and have outstanding functionality in a wide variety of commercial applications.

Sloan Optimix Faucet Models

Sloan has developed Optimix faucets for their EAF-200, 250, and 275 series faucets. We have added the most popular models (EAF-250) to our website. However, we carry all models available from Sloan.
