A commonly asked question by clients when deciding between what TOTO toilet suite is the best suited for them is “what is the difference between the two washlet seats?”. The answer is a combination of numerous factors including budget, usage of the toilet, what functions you want and the aesthetics of the product itself. Below we will discuss the key differences between the Washlet Seat with Remote Control & the Washlet seat with Side control.

TOTO Washlet Toilet Seat with Side Control

The TOTO Basic + Toilet and Washlet Seat with Side Control

The Side control option that is attached to the toilet itself on the right hand side only is the no-frills version of the TOTO bidet toilet seat. With full operational control on the actual toilet seat, this can be a good choice for those with less flexibility and mobility. It is a manually lifted toilet seat which does not automatically lift up as you arrive. This version is also more budget friendly and is currently on sale for $880.00 Inc GST. TOTO have provided us with templates where you can place the sheet over your existing toilet to confirm if you can retrofit this to your existing toilet. Please note, you will need power though so an electrician is also required.

The Washlet seat with side remote control is an aesthetically more pleasing toilet seat then the side control. The wand which releases the water from the bidet seat automatically sanitizes both the inside and the outside of the wand with each use. it also uses eWater when washing to create an added bacterial santizing effect when the wand is being cleaned. Furthermore this has the added function of an automatically closing and opening function when approaching the toilet. One of the most pleasing aspects is the automated deodorizer which ensures there is no unpleasant odours after usage. These added features create a more luxurious finish and this is on special at $2500.00 Inc GST. Please note, this can also be retrofitted onto your existing toilet
