In the past few years, bathrooms have evolved from wet zones to wellness oases. WeberHaus is also following this trend in home design, offering shower toilets from TOTO – the Japanese manufacturer with the most extensive expertise. TOTO is now an integral part of the WeberHaus World of Living, the prefabricated home show park in Rheinau-Linx – and people can try TOTO products here as well. According to Design Director Thomas Hirsch, complicated products like a shower toilet, which functions as both toilet and bidet, still require a bit of explanation. But he’s had his own experiences with the product: “Once you’ve used fresh, warm water for intimate cleansing after using the toilet, you won’t want to do without!”

Those who want a shower toilet in their WeberHaus prefabricated home are thrilled to choose one from the Japanese manufacturer. According to WeberHaus Design Director Thomas Hirsch, this is because of the many years of experience that TOTO has dedicated to developing its shower toilets. “This gives customers more confidence, especially when it comes to a complicated product that requires a bit of explanation, like a shower toilet – which is a toilet and bidet in one,” he explains.
The Hall of Creativity at World of Living in Rheinau-Linx is a massive 4,500 m2 space showcasing select products from prominent brand-name manufacturers. People spend at least three days browsing, collecting samples and taking a closer look at the fixtures, finishes and furnishings they want in their new WeberHaus. Planning the bathroom is an especially important part of this process, as people are especially willing to spend more for high-quality, long-lasting fixtures and furnishings in this space. Design Director Thomas Hirsch has worked for prefabricated house manufacturer WeberHaus for over 30 years and leads a team of 22 consultants. He has noticed the same trend and finds TOTO WASHLET to be a truly exceptional product. “WeberHaus stands for quality. It’s important to us that the manufacturers we offer do the same and have excellent reputations.” According to Hirsch, TOTO’s many years of experience and their exceptional technological expertise are great reasons to choose WASHLET.

Technological expertise makes the difference

The companies initially connected at the ISH trade show, and WASHLETs have been available at World of Living for 12 years now. WeberHaus has around 35 so-called construction forums across Germany and Switzerland where people can make decisions about their WeberHaus projects. But the fine-tuning and final product choices are only made at the Rheinau-Linx location in Baden, or a slightly smaller site in the Sauerland region. “When customers start talking about shower toilets, they are instantly impressed by the benefits of the TOTO models,” Thomas Hirsch explains. The sheer size of the company and many years of experience in developing shower toilets fosters trust in this product, which is still unfamiliar to many people. Their timeless design and understated elegance also make these products very appealing. But according to Hirsch, TOTO’s technological expertise is what makes all the difference.

Shower toilets require more explanation – but years of experience inspire trust

Despite people’s enthusiasm for the shower toilet, it is still not a mainstream product. As such, it requires more detailed explanations than other products. “It helps that our team does training sessions on our different products at least once a month,” explains the experienced consultant. This helps everyone learn everything they need to know to explain a complicated product like TOTO WASHLET to customers.

Benefits of TOTO WASHLET:

The most important hygiene and comfort features at a glance.
Note: These may vary depending on the model:

  • Adjustable warm water cleansing – temperature, spray type and pressure
  • Odour absorption
  • Heated seat
    EWATER+ cleans the ceramic and wand jet with electrolysed water, which has antibacterial properties
  • PREMIST coats the toilet bowl in a fine mist of water prior to use – it’s more difficult for dirt and waste to stick to the ceramic when it’s wet
  • The powerful TORNADO FLUSH thoroughly cleans the entire toilet bowl
  • The long-lasting CEFIONTECT glaze keeps the surface looking shiny and new for years while preventing bacteria or dirt from accumulating.
  • Optional: Sensor-based lid and automatic flush
