Thrones for Royalty: Washlet™, Neorest™ , Bidets and other Enhanced Toilet Solutions.

   If you follow celebrities, you may have heard that Kim Kardashian and Kayne West spent nearly $750,000 on four gold-plated toilets for their Bel Air mansion.   Now that’s a throne for a queen!

However, did you know that there are some very upscale toilet solutions available right here in Calgary — at prices accessible to all? 

TOTO’s Washlet ™and Neorest™
Washlet™ is a toilet seat that fits onto your existing toilet model and provides soothing warm-water cleansing at the touch of a button, virtually eliminating the need for toilet paper.   If you want the ultimate experience (short of the gold-plated Kardashian solution!) you can also opt for the Toto’s high-end Neorest™model.

The Neorest™ has many luxurious built-in features such as an automatic open-and-close lid, hands-free flush and pulsating comfort washing.

The Bidet
A bidet is a plumbing fixture similar to a sink, intended for washing after the use of the toilet.   You use the toilet, then you get off it, and move over to seat yourself on the bidet (about the same height as a toilet, and is another fixture entirely) which washes your “undercarriage”.  Bidets take up about the same amount of room as a toilet.  So which is a better solution?

Bidets vs.  Washlet™ Experience

The Washlet™ design has several key benefits over a traditional bidet: 
•    You don’t have to get up and move as you would need to with a bidet.
•    Washlets are also portable. If you move houses, you can take your Washlet™ toilet seat with you.
•    Superior personal hygiene. You don’t get off the unit until you are washed, and clean.
• Options available include water temperature control, warm air dryer, heated seat, water pressure control, nozzle position adjustment, self-cleaning wand, soft rear cleanse, pulsating cleanse, automatic open-and-close lid and an automatic flush. You can even have a remote controlled seat, lid and flush.

Brands other than TOTO

Consumers should be aware that there are some cheaper toilet enhancement solutions available in the market.  We have tested these and found various problems; for example, the water spray may not be heated, or the head of the spray hose is leaky.  At Instant Plumbing, we use TOTO products because they are a globally recognized brand known for longstanding quality and workmanship. Many of our customers who have moved to Calgary from Europe know the TOTO brand already and specifically request it. 

Installation Process – Heated and Washing Toilet Seats

We have installed close to a hundred Washlet™ toilet seats in less than three years, so we generally keep these units stocked and available. The most popular is the Washlet™ S300 line. The installation process is quite simple and takes less than an hour. At Instant Plumbing, we also use a qualified electrician to ensure the wiring is installed correctly.  Prices estimated above DO include installation.
