With conventional toilet bowls, people need to use brushes and a lot of cleaners to keep them clean and hygienic. TOTO, a Japanese manufacturer of bathroom furnishings and fixtures, has developed Tornado Flush technology that uses a powerful whirlpool effect to clean the bowl, effectively eliminating dirt and germs. Instead of letting water pour down from the rim like conventional toilets, the rotating whirlpool effect created by the Tornado Flush technology ensures that all toilets and Washlets clean and hygienic at all times. The Tornado Flush projects three powerful jets of water to clean the entire surface of the bowl, creating an effect similar to a tornado with the help of centrifugal force. As a result, this system cleans the bowl more effectively than conventional f lush systems, and is far quieter. Additional components work together to improve cleanliness and hygiene. Unlike conventional ceramic toilets, the CeFIONtect ceramic glaze has an extremely smooth surface to keep dirt from building up in microscopic crevices. The rimless design also gives dirt and germs nowhere to hide and makes it far easier to clean the toilet bowl.
