The Latest Toilet Technologies


For years and years, stepping into a home’s bathroom was a somewhat boring experience. However, those days are over for more and more people. With today’s world being more stressful than ever, today’s bathrooms are becoming rooms designed to offer relaxation and comfort.

To make sure this is the case, toilet technology has been introduced to provide an experience unlike any other to those who step into their lavatories. Whether you’re looking for a toilet that will never clog, monitor your pulse, or give you a heated seat to rest on, you’ll find all that and more today. If you want to learn more about these and other features, take a look at some of the most interesting technology available in the modern toilet.

Comfort and Convenience

If you step into a bathroom today, chances are you’ll find a toilet that offers tremendous levels of comfort and convenience. If it’s a cold morning, you may find yourself being able to sit down on a heated seat. However, if you find yourself in need of a massage, the toilet just might provide a seat that massages as well as a bowl that offers an oscillating spray massage once you’re finished. Much like today’s day spas, these toilets guarantee a pleasant experience that’s guaranteed to melt away any stress.

Your Toilet and Your Body

A few years ago, virtually nobody would have thought that vital body functions could be monitored by their toilet. However, thanks to some innovative engineers and state-of-the-art technology, a toilet today can monitor a variety of functions such as blood sugar levels, pulse, and blood pressure. Expected to be a popular addition to bathrooms in the years ahead, engineers are working to add even more features to these toilets.

Low-Flow, but Still Packing a Punch

As toilet technology has advanced, one feature that has become quite common is using less water per flush. Whereas older toilets used upwards of four gallons of water per flush, modern toilets use about 1.5 gallons of water per flush. However, despite using so little water, these toilets still possess quite a bit of power. In fact, they are so powerful that they are now able to send up to 24 golf balls down the drain without having any clogging issues.
