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.

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 Waterfree Urinal Cartridge Replacement Instructions

If you are a maintenance person who services Sloan Waterfree Urinals, then this article is for you! Sloan waterfree urinals are fantastic fixtures to install if you want to save water, lower sewage bills, and attain LEED certifications. This blog will show you the most up to date Sloan waterfree urinal cartridge information with step-by-step instructions. You will learn the most common mistakes when it comes to servicing Sloan waterfree urinals. You can read our frequently asked questions about waterfree urinals and waterfree urinal cartridge replacement. We also include links to all the waterfree urinal fixtures, cartridges, and cartridge replacement tools we have in our online store. Read on to get all of this information in our waterfree urinal cartridge replacement guide.

Sloan Waterfree Urinal Replacement Instructions

*The step by step instructions below are from Sloan Valve’s Installation & Operating Instruction Manual. We have adapted their instructions to include our tips and additional information.

Sloan waterfree urinal cartridge replacement instructions

1. Insert the key into the cartridge.


2. Turn key to the left (counterclockwise) to unlock the waterfree urinal cartridge.


3. Lift and tilt the cartridge to drain it of all liquids (water, sealant, urine).


4. Place cartridge into the garbage bag. *Caution: After removing the cartridge, sewer gases may escape through the opening until the new cartridge is installed. If cartridge will not be replaced immediately, place a rag or paper towels into the opening to block any sewer gases.


5. Scrub the housing, drain nipple, and deep inside of the tailpipe with a long 1.5-inch diameter nylon brush.


6. Flush the housing with 5 gallons of hot soapy water.


7. Wipe the inner stainless steel rim clean.


8. Insert the new waterfree urinal cartridge using the key. Turn key to the right (clockwise) to lock and click the new cartridge into place.


9. Slowly fill the new cartridge with 1 quart or more of clean water until there are no air bubbles.


10. Add blue sealant (allow time to drain into the cartridge).


11. Spray (mist) cleaner to wipe the surface of the urinal and around the cartridge. Wipe clean.


Common Waterfree Maintenance Mistakes

This is a must read for those who maintain Sloan waterfree urinals or plan on buying them in the future. Below are the two most common mistakes that are made, and these mistakes often result in more problems whose solutions are difficult to identify. Avoid making these mistakes by properly maintaining your waterfree urinals. If you follow these instructions, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Mistake #1: Flushing the waterfree urinal cartridge with water after the sealant has been administered.

The most common Sloan waterfree urinal maintenance mistake is flushing the cartridge with water AFTER the blue sealant has been added. Flushing the cartridge with water after the sealant has been added will flush the sealant down the drain, which in turn causes the causes the cartridge not to work properly. The smell of urine will come back through the cartridge if there is no sealant in the cartridge.

Mistake #2: Failing to clean the housing and drain nipple when changing the urinal cartridge.

The second most common mistake when performing maintenance of waterfree urinals is failing to properly clean all areas of the urinal and housing cartridge each time the cartridge is replaced. The short, horizontal drain nipple gets clogged by struvite, which is a water-soluble biosolid found in urine. Struvite that accumulates in the housing and drain nipple causes a slow flow of urine out of the urinal if the struvite is not properly removed. It can be removed with a bottle brush and some soapy water. This should be done each time a cartridge is replaced.


Waterfree Urinal Cartridge FAQs

How much water do waterless urinals save?

Waterless urinals can save up to 40,000 gallons of water each year. This enables buildings to gain maximum LEED credits for their urinal fixtures. They also greatly reduce water and sewage costs.

When does a waterfree urinal cartridge need to be replaced?

Cartridges need to be replaced every 3 months or every 7,000 uses.

The easiest way to schedule cartridge replacement is to simply replace it every 3 months, which works for most locations. Urinals that get more use, however, may need to be replaced sooner than every 3 months.

One way to figure out how many days your cartridge will last until it needs to be replaced is to count restroom traffic for a duration of time. For example, if you count 10 users over the period of an hour, then divide 7,000 by 10, then you would find that your cartridges need to be replaced every 700 hours which equates to approximately 29 days. (Divide 700 by 24 to convert hours to days.) If there is more than one waterfree urinal in the restroom, then divide the number of users per hour by the number of waterfree urinals. Then divide 7000 thousand by that number, and finally divide that number by 24 to get the numbers of days before you need to change the cartridge.

Other signs that your waterfree urinal cartridge needs to be replaced:

  • If your restroom starts to smell like urine even when they are clean, that is a sign that your cartridges need to be replaced.
  • The blue indicator on top of the cartridge is no longer visible
  • Fluid flows very slowly into the cartridge
  • Blue sealant appears on top of the cartridge

What urinals use waterfree urinal cartridges?

The following Sloan urinal models are waterfree urinals that utilize WES-150 waterfree urinal cartridges:

  • WES-1000
  • WES-4000
  • WES-7000

How do I clean the urinal bowl without using water?

Cleaning the urinal bowl without ruining the urinal cartridge (water removes the sealant) is simple. Use a spray cleaner and then wipe the bowl down with a rag, sponge, or mop.


Where to Buy Waterfree Urinal Cartridge Filters and Cartridge Removing Tools

We sell the waterfree urinal cartridge filter kits and the heavy duty cartridge removing tool at Equiparts. The waterfree urinal cartridge filter comes with everything needed to complete the repair: the cartridge, disposable gloves, a small garbage bag, a cartridge removing tool, and blue sealant. We also sell a heavy duty cartridge removing tool that is a higher quality cartridge removing tool than the tool that comes in the kit. It is a one time purchase that makes cartridge extraction easier. It features a longer handle which enables the maintenance personnel removing the cartridge to stand further away from the urinal and thus be further away from the sewage gases that may escape from the open drain during cartridge replacement.

Better than Rubber and Wax Gaskets: New Elastomer Gaskets

Elastomer Gaskets for toilet and urinal installations are a revolutionary new sealing option for plumbers and facility managers. We are excited to provide our customers with this innovative new gasket that will most likely make wax and rubber gaskets obsolete. Watch our video and read our article below to learn more about Elastomer Gaskets by Tight Seal, and gain a full understanding of Elastomer Gaskets in comparison to Wax and Wax-Free Rubber Gaskets. Know your options when it comes to gaskets, and why more and more of our plumbing and facility maintenance customers are switching to new Elastomer Gaskets.

Tight Seal Elastomer Gaskets Video

Note: This video was created before Elastomer Gaskets changed the color of their gaskets from yellow to blue. The gaskets are only available in blue now. 

The Best Gasket Material: Elastomer

Tight Seal Elastomer Gaskets are named after the material they are made of: Elastomer. Elastomer is a sticky, springy material that bounces back after being compressed. Elastomer Gaskets share the best qualities of wax and rubber gaskets, without the drawbacks. They provide an airtight seal like wax gaskets, while maintaining their shape under pressure. They also hold up under hot/cold temperatures like rubber gaskets. Read on for the full benefits of Elastomer Gaskets by Tight Seal.

The Benefits of Elastomer Gaskets

  • Won’t melt in hot weather or become hard
    in cold weather
  • Reusable
  • Springs back into shape after being squeezed
  • Allows repositioning of fixture
  • Sticky Elastomer ensures a tight seal
  • No more scraping messy wax off of fixtures

Now that you know what makes Elastomer Gaskets so great, let’s take a look at other gasket types and compare their pros and cons for a full picture of toilet and urinal sealing options. (Or skip down to find out How to Purchase)

The Pros and Cons of Wax Gaskets

Wax Rings are used as a gasket for toilet and urinal installations for three reasons:

Wax Ring Pros

  • The wax material conforms to the fixture, creating a seal that is airtight.
  • They are cheap.
  • They can be stacked.

Wax Ring Cons

  • A wax gasket needs to be lined up completely accurately when installing, or else you may need to use an entirely new wax gasket when repositioning the fixture.
  • Wax gaskets can melt. Leave them in your truck in the Summer, or install them near a floor with radiant heat, and a wax seal will melt, losing its shape and its ability to properly seal.
  • Wax toilet and urinal gaskets can also freeze in the winter.
  • Wax rings can become misshapen. For example, when a heavier person sits on a toilet with a wax ring, the ring can flatten in an area, and then fixture will become tilted which in turn can break the seal of the gasket.
  • Wax rings leave a waxy residue that creates a mess.

Rubber Gaskets: The Pros and Cons

Rubber Gaskets are chosen as gaskets for toilet and urinal installations mainly for the following reasons:

Pros of Rubber Gaskets

  • Rubber gaskets can help direct flow with angled flanges, which helps deter potential leakage.
  • Rubber gaskets are wax-free, which means they are less messy.
  • Rubber gaskets will not flatten or become misshapen, which helps to keep the drain open and the fixture in the correct position.
  • When toilets or urinals need to be replaced, or when maintenance requires the fixture to be disconnected, then that rubber gasket can be easily removed

Rubber Gasket Cons

  • Rubber gaskets don’t have as tight of a seal as more sticky gaskets do
  • Rubber gaskets are more expensive than wax gaskets

Why Choose One Gasket Type Over Another?

Gasket choice really comes down to personal preference, which is why we carry wax gaskets, wax-free or rubber gaskets, as well as our latest offering, the newest innovation in gasket material, Elastomer Gaskets.

Elastomer Gaskets

How to Permanently Eliminate the Smell of Urine from Public Restrooms

Have you ever walked into a restroom and smelled urine despite the fact that the restroom has been cleaned? Odor can be due to a multitude of factors, including people missing the toilet and other unsanitary conditions. Unfortunately, it can also happen in clean restrooms.

PB Gone, the Uric Acid EliminatorFor restrooms that aren’t cleaned thoroughly or often enough, the problem may be a buildup of uric acid that is hard to remove. In this instance, we suggest using a cleaning product called PB Gone’, the Uric Acid Eliminator. This specialty cleaning product utilizes engineered enzymes which attack Uric Acid build up and continue to break it down long after it’s sprayed. Another cleaning agent, ‘Urinal Scale Remover’ removes uric acid as well as limescale, calcium, and rust build-up.

What is the problem when a restroom is clean, but still smells like urine?

Restrooms that smell like urine even when they are clean and free of uric acid build-up are most common in men’s restrooms for one reason: Urinals. This problem can be more common in waterfree urinals. There is a Waterfree Urinal Cleanser that can be used to ‘flush’ the urinals of residue from urine.

60800115CS_2Facilities choose waterfree urinals to save money and energy through bypassing the need to flush the urinal every time it’s used. Based on Gentworks survey data collected from hundred of sites, 80% of the monetary savings gained from the installation of water free urinals (view our waterfree urinal selectionwill be due to the reduction in water use. However, the challenge of waterfree urinals is their maintenance requirements.  Improper or infrequent maintenance leads to the buildup of solids in the urinal, which results in bathroom odor. This brings us to our final, permanent solution for ridding your restroom of urine smell while remaining water and energy conscious: introducing the Sloan Hybrid Urinal with Jetrinse technology. Find out how the new Hybrid Urinal by Sloan Valve can save your facility tens of thousands of gallons of water each year while needing little maintenance at the same time with a ‘service purge’ that keeps drain lines clean and free of urine. Learn more about the most innovative urinal on the market in our Sloan Hybrid Urinal blog post.

Sloan Hybrid Urinal with Jetrinse Technology

Sloan Hybrid Urinal with Jetrinse technology

The new Sloan Hybrid Urinal with Jetrinse technology is virtually a waterfree urinal that does an automatic ‘service purge’ which flushes up to one gallon of water once every 72 hours. This hybrid model allows you to still save thousands of gallons of water a year and also easily keep your drain lines clean, hygienic, and clog free, while also keeping your restrooms odor free!
We like to practice what we preach at Equiparts. So, we updated our facilities with the new Hybrid Urinal from Sloan! We promote sustainability at Equiparts and hope to become more energy and water efficient as our manufacturers continue to create innovative and environmentally friendly fixtures and products. (We also have a bottle filler station in our employee kitchen that has saved over 12,000 plastic bottles!) We are excited to now have a Sloan Hybrid Urinal which will help us save thousands of gallons of water each year.Sloan Hybrid Urinal Installation Info

Notes about Installing the Sloan Hybrid Urinal:

Flushometer inside the Sloan Hybrid UrinalAccording to Chris Pofi, Operations Manager at Equiparts, the Sloan Hybrid Urinal with Jetrinse Technology was very easy to install at Equiparts. He says that it only took them about 30 minutes to install in the Equiparts’ restroom.

Prior to the Hybrid Urinal, Equiparts had an American Standard AllBrook Urinal installed. (The All Brook is very similar to the High-Efficiency Sloan Urinal, so these installation tips most likely apply to updating from that unit as well) The footprint of the AllBrook urinal was smaller than the footprint of the Sloan Hybrid urinal, which fortunately covered up any marks or indentations made by the AllBrook unit. The only item that needed adjusting was the height of the wall mounting bracket.

Installing New Urinals? Don’t Make the Mistake of Updating Outdated

Avoid updating your facility with a urinal that may have a gpf that is soon to be obsolete. Find out why another state’s new water appliance regulations for 2016 may affect you and your new urinal installation, even if you are in a different state.

California Water Appliance Regulation Information

Starting January 1st, 2016, California’s tighter water usage laws have come into effect. In April of 2015, California created new water efficiency standards, limiting water usage in new water fixtures. Now, all new toilets, urinals, and faucets are under new regulations that limit water flow. There are other initiatives as well, like a rebate program that encourages the replacement of old household appliances too.California Energy Commission Water Usage Laws

According to the California Energy Commission, these restrictions are expected to save over 10 billion gallons of water within the first year. These tighter water usage laws are due in part to the growing acknowledgment that water and energy waste is an issue, and also in part to the new technology and water fixtures that are now available. Under these new water usage laws, urinals, a major offender of unnecessary water waste, will fall from allowing a half-gallon flush, to only an eighth (0.125) of a gallon per flush.

The state of California is at the forefront of change. We foresee these tighter water useage laws having a ripple effect of modernization across the United States, and welcome the green updates.

Sloan Valve Energy Efficient Urinals

If your company is updating or installing bathroom fixtures now or in the near future, you may want to consider these new regulations set forth by the California Energy Commission. We encourage you to install units that encourage longevity while saving energy and water. Adhere to the new California Regulations for maximum long-term savings. By building or updating with Sloan Valve’s high-efficiency fixtures, your company will be prepared for the changes sure to come in the near future.

Current EPA WaterSense Labeling Requirements
Currently in Pennsylvania, a high-efficiency flushing urinal uses 0.5 gallons of water per flush. So only if your urinal uses 0.5 GPF or less, can your business display that your restroom urinals are high-efficiency EPA WaterSense Certificationappliances. Only then can you display EPA WaterSense labels, which informs consumers that you care about the environment and wasting water. So when will water usage laws change in Pennsylvania? Who knows. Will it change and likely mirror California’s restrictions? Yes. Will EPA WaterSense stipulations eventually rise to reflect the new water saving models now available? Yes.

New Products from Sloan Valve: Reclaimed Flushometer and Hybrid Urinal

Sloan Valve is a premier partner of Equiparts. One of the reasons Sloan Valve is such a strong partner here is because we like supplying our customers with their innovative, premium performance products. Here we will take a look at Sloan Valve’s Reclaimed Water Flushometers, as well as the new Sloan Hybrid Urinal with Jetrinse Technology.

Casey Reclaimed Drop-in Sloan Valve kitReclaimed Water Flushometer

Sloan’s new Reclaimed Water Flushometer uses rainwater and gray water to conserve potable resources. “However, using reclaimed water is not without its challenges. With higher chemical concentrations than potable water, reclaimed water can damage plumbing components that use yellow brass (high zinc content) and organic rubber, potentially leading to increased maintenance requirements and premature failure,” as stated by Sloan on their website. That is why using solutions specifically designed for reclaimed water is important.
Casey Devlin, pictured above, spoke about this and other new Sloan products at the most recent Lunch-n-Learn we hosted at the Equiparts Main Office in Oakmont, Pittsburgh. Reclaimed water flush valves and parts can be recognized by their distinctive purple color. Although reclaimed water must be filtered and treated, Sloan has created a special diaphragm to prevent potential clogging by any sediment that may slip through. Other parts are also specifically designed to withstand the challenges of reclaimed water.

Equiparts carries both Manual and Sensor Flushometers and Flushometer Parts parts by Sloan Valve. So go green by going purple, and use the correct flushometers and parts for longer production and less maintenance.
