When you think of new technology, you might not immediately think of your toilet. However, the tech revolution has definitely reached into the bathroom and has turned the features of the standard toilet upside-down. With the help of your plumber , you can upgrade your bathroom tech and invest in a toilet with new, technologically advanced features. Here are some of the new design perks you can embrace.
When you get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, switching on the overhead bathroom light is jarring and makes you feel fully awake, which can then make it hard to fall back to sleep. However, the dark is usually not an option. Now, however, you can get a toilet that has LED lighting integrated into the seat, so you can see where you’re going at night without the need for bright, overhead lights. The LED lighting incorporated into toilet design is often blue, so it is bright enough to provide sufficient illumination without triggering you to become more awake.
If you live in a cold climate, a freezing toilet seat is something you’ve likely come to dread. Much like your car, however, you can now use a seat heater to warm up the toilet to a more comfortable temperature. Most heaters work with the simple press of a button, but they do need to be attached to an electrical outlet, so they will only work in bathrooms that have an outlet within easy reach of the toilet.
Although technology hasn’t yet reached the point at which toilets can completely clean themselves, there are toilets that have self-cleaning functions in the bowls. Many pre-spray the bowl before it used so that is stays cleaner for longer. Some bowls are also deodorized now with carbon filters to reduce unpleasant smells.
