Toto’s SG Washlet
The rimless SG Washlet by Toto is a true innovation. It offers two new self-cleaning technologies – Actilight and ewater+.

Once the light hits the zirconium coating, photo catalysis accelerates the decomposition process of all of the organic substances on the surface. After the toilet has been used, the Washlet sprays the toilet bowl once again with electrolyzed water. This antibacterial ewater+ actively prevents the build-up of limescale and waste, keeping the toilet bowl far cleaner over time.
