TOTO, a Japanese provider of bathroom concepts and innovative solutions, has introduced Tornado Flush technology, a new way of flushing the toilets. 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 wash lets clean & 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 flush systems, and is far quieter. The powerful cleaning power of the Tornado Flush means that it requires very little water to thoroughly clean the bowl – either three or six litres per flush. Three litres are probably sufficient for normal flushing.
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 company has also transformed the shape of toilet bowl. It does not have a rim or any hidden corners, which prevents the formation of mould and accumulation of dirt and germs. The streamlined design also makes cleaning the toilet bowl much simpler – it is possible to reach every inch of the bowl.
