TOTO is well known for creating stylish toilets that have multi-functions such as the washlet. They were on hand Greenbuild this year sharing their latest innovations, two of which we found fascinating. Their eco-power faucets and double cyclone flushing system.
TOTO EcoPower Faucets
The EcoPower faucets are engineered to require no electricity or disposable battery replacement and claim to be the perfect marriage of hands-free operation, low maintenance and sophisticated design.
EcoPower’s turbine, powered by water, creates an electrical current that is stored in rechargeable cells that power the Smart Sensor System of either the faucet or valve. TOTO is the only manufacturer with this proprietary sensor technology. EcoPower replenishes its charge with as few as five uses a day and is optimized at 10 uses per day.
TOTO Double Cyclone Flush toilets
TOTO double cyclone flush uses 1.28 GPF that maximizes cleaning action. Using two nozzles (instead of rim holes), water is used more efficiently and clears the rim and bowl on each flush and directs more water to the siphon, for a more powerful flush.
Having a a hole-rim free design helps to eliminate trapped dirt and bacteria which means less cleaning.
Lenora Campos was gracious enough to walk us through the technology behind each of these features that are available with TOTO faucets and toilets.
