TOTO Expands Line of NEOREST Integrated Toilets

Dec 4, 2013

TOTO introduces two new ultra high-efficiency NEOREST performance-designs this year – the 700H and 550H – with dual-flush, high-efficiency flushing and eWater+ technology to keep the bowl fresh and clean longer, benefiting the planet and saving consumers money on harsh cleaning products.

People-Centered Design

People ask for TOTO when they want the best of everything for their bathroom – beauty and function together. The new NEORESTS’ elegant appearance is inspired by long-view trends in global design – modern, clean, simple, and timeless – and people’s desire for attractive, appealing products that respect the plant and its water supply.

NEOREST 700H

The ultra high-efficiency NEOREST 700H is an example of TOTO Total Design. TOTO exceeds ADA and Universal Design principles to create performance-designs that are even more inclusive. TOTO Total Design includes its People-Innovation and People-Centered Design principles.

The inclusive-design NEOREST is 17” from its base to the top of the seat, which is the ergonomically correct height for a person to comfortably sit down and rise from the unit with ease. Other inclusive-design features on the NEOREST 700 include its integrated personal cleansing system, auto-open/close, auto-flush features.

Ultra High-Efficiency Cyclone Dual-Flush System

The NEOREST 700H offers an ultra high-efficiency Cyclone dual-flush technology, which consumes a modest one-gallon of water per flush (gpf) for the full flush and 0.8 gpf for the light. The new system builds on TOTO’s patented Cyclone flushing technology, which simultaneously

releases two powerful water jets inside the bowl, creating a whirlpool effect that effectively removes waste and cleans the bowl’s surface and rim more thoroughly and quietly than any other flushing system. TOTO’s new Ultra High-Efficiency Cyclone Dual-Flush System employs a reserve water tank and pumping system inside the toilet that combines with the home’s direct water supply to realize its new ultra-high-efficiency dual flush 1.0 gpf / 0.8 gpf flushing capability. To achieve this, TOTO engineers designed a revolutionary flushing system in which the siphon jet is fed from water that is pumped into the bottom of the bowl from the reserve tank, and the powerful rim and bowl wash is suppled directly by home’s water supply. This cutting-edge flushing system is unaffected by a building’s by water pressure – enabling NEOREST 700Hs installed in high-rise, multi-family buildings and the upper floors of single-family residences achieve the same powerful performance as those in low-rise buildings.

To ensure the bowl stays clean and fresh, the NEOREST 700H offers TOTO’s eWater+ technology. Using the incoming water supply, a pre-mist wets the bowl’s surface preventing waste’s adherence 80% better than dry porcelain. After each flush, TOTO’s eWater+ mists the SanaGloss glazed bowl with electrolysed water, which has a slightly acidic pH value, to keep the bowl fresh and clean longer — reducing the need for harsh chemicals during cleaning, which benefits the planet and saves consumers money on cleaning products.

The compact-design, ultra high-efficiency NEOREST 550H Dual Flush Toilet respects the

environment while meeting people’s needs for comfort, beauty and performance. In addition to the new ultra high-efficiency Cyclone dual-flush flushing system, NEOREST 550H’s superior bowl cleansing action results from its rimless design, SanaGloss glazed bowl, and eWater+ technology that disinfects the bowl, keeping it clean and fresh longer. High-resolution digital photographs of the NEOREST 700H and NEOREST 550H are available for download from TOTO’s Online Press Room or immediately upon request.
