Touch-free Toilets, Yea or Nay?

June 05, 2024

Have you seen the commercial, where this little boy tries to flush toys and mounds on top of mounds of toilet tissue but this super duper ultra toilet has built-in technology that prevents clogged toilets? Technology has certainly come a long way! You may not be in the market for the Superman of all toilets but there are many advantages to making a slight upgrade from your standard toilet to a hands-free option.

Besides adding a modern and luxurious feel to your home, you may be wondering about the other benefits of owning a hands-free toilet system. The bathroom and more specifically the toilet is considered to be one of the most (if not the most) germ-infested area of your home. A hands-free toilet means you no longer have to worry about stepping into the bathroom only to find that the former visitor neglected to flush. Some of the newer toilets even disperse a little of disinfectant with each flush! A little dose of germs from a dirty toilet handle may cause days of sickness. This bathroom improvement becomes extremely helpful when there are little ones in your home who simply like to flush the toilet just to hear the sound it makes.

Not only will you receive less sick days and improved sanitation but you will also save money! Automated toilets regulate the amount of water used for each flush and offer low water flow technology, cutting the cost of water consumption. We invest in ways to save on electricity, so why not slash the prices of our water bills?

Now with all of the seemingly great benefits to owning a hands-free toilet, why hasn’t there been a surge in homeowner purchases? With the purchase of these new toilets, you “semi” lose your control over when you’re ready to flush. Some people have formed a pre-finish, flush ritual, the kind where you don’t even want yourself to suffer from yesterday’s street tacos. There have also been small reports of the toilets flushing too often during a single visit, which defeats the purpose of seeking an energy efficient option. This issue is not a permanent (nor common) one as often times the toilet is only in need of a fine-tuning and toying around with the sensitivity level of the flush.

All in all, handsfree toilets have taken hospitals and retail stores by storm for its high sanitation level properties. However, if you are not completely sold on this option but still in need of a replacement toilet, then contact your local Atlanta Plumber.
