From Bidet to Smart Toilets: The Future of Toilet Technology

From Bidet to Smart Toilets: The Future of Toilet Technology

Throughout history, toilets have evolved from basic bidets to luxurious toilets equipped with a variety of features. However, many traditional toilets are inefficient and lack user comfort.

Hygiene is a major concern in toilets, and advancements in toilet technology have made toilets more hygienic than ever. Smart toilets are made to stop the spread of germs by flushing and cleaning themselves. In addition, toilets can be equipped with hands-free flush sensors, heated seats, air purifiers, and other features that make toilets even more hygienic. Sustainability is also important when it comes to toilets. Low-flush toilets use less water than traditional toilets and help conserve precious resources. Smart toilets also feature a smart flush system that helps to save even more water by automatically adjusting the flush rate based on how much waste is in the toilet bowl.

At Ross’s Discount Home Centre in Perth, we’re proud to sell high-tech and eco-friendly toilets for the best hygiene. So, today, we will look at how toilet technology has changed over time, from the simple bidet to the fantastic smart toilet. We’ll look at their most important features, benefits, and the exciting future of bathroom innovations.

Bidet: A stepping stone towards smart toilets

As a product manager, I’m always looking for more hygienic and sustainable toilets to offer Ross’s Discount Home Centre customers. And when it comes to toilets, a great starting point is the bidet, a toilet fixture that has been around for centuries.

A bidet is a basin or bowl with a nozzle at one end, spraying water onto your body after using the toilet. It can help improve hygiene, reduce irritation, and relieve constipation. Plus, using a bidet means less toilet paper consumption, which can be better for the environment in the long run.

Today, you can find traditional bidets and attachable ones installed on existing toilets. These are often more cost-effective than purchasing an integrated bidet toilet with features like heated seats, air purifiers and hands-free sensors.

At Ross’s Discount Home Centre in Perth, we offer some of the latest innovations in toilets, including smart toilet seats with integrated bidets, so customers can access high-tech toilets without breaking their bank accounts!

The rise of smart toilets

Smart toilets are the next generation of toilets, combining luxury and convenience with advanced features. Smart toilets have a range of features, such as heated seats, adjustable water temperature and pressure, self-cleaning functions, integrated bidets and air dryers, remote control, voice activation, and more.

These toilets also come with various health benefits. The heated seats help to keep your toilet area warm and comfortable, while the adjustable water temperature ensures a more hygienic experience. The air purifiers built into smart toilets also allow for better circulation of fresh air in the bathroom. The integrated bidets provide extra sanitisation, allowing users to stay clean and germ-free after every use.

Smart toilets also benefit the environment. Many toilets come with water-saving technologies that allow you to adjust your flush rate based on how much waste is in the bowl, helping conserve water and energy.

Innovations in toilet technology for the developing world

Toilet technology has made great strides over the years, but affordability is the most important factor in toilets in developing countries.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Reinvent the Toilet Challenge” is helping to make toilets more affordable and accessible in the developing world. They provide grants and resources to organisations working on improving existing toilet designs and creating new toilets that reduce water usage, improve sanitation, and create energy from waste products.

The toilets created through this challenge have already made a difference in countries such as India, where toilets are often too expensive for most households. Improving existing toilets and creating new, more affordable toilets are helping to close the sanitation gap and improve lives worldwide.

The future of toilet technology

The future of toilet technology is both exciting and promising. In the coming years, toilets will get smarter and more efficient as technological advances evolve. We already see toilets with features such as integration with the Internet of Things (IoT), sustainable materials and self-cleaning coatings, smart toilets for elderly and disabled users, artificial intelligence and health-monitoring features, and the potential for waste-to-energy conversion.

At Ross’s Discount Home Centre in Perth, we always look for ways to make toilets more affordable yet still packed with technology. We offer toilet seats with various features, such as integrated bidets, so customers can access high-tech toilets without breaking their bank accounts.
