The idea of combining a toilet and bidet in one product came from Japan – and is becoming increasingly popular in Germany as well. A shower toilet allows people to feel fresh, clean and comfortable multiple times a day. Nearly all Japanese households have some type of WASHLET, which is why the shower toilet is also referred to as the “Japanese toilet”.

Makes toilet paper almost unnecessary – protecting the environment

When you try this type of toilet for the first time, it may feel a little unusual to use the toilet and also cleanse your intimate areas with one product. But this is how a a shower toilet works: Simply pressing the remote control sprays pleasantly warmed water from the wand jet. All models also have a “lady shower” especially for women. Everyone leaves feeling far fresher and cleaner than when using a conventional toilet. And it reduces the use of toilet paper to a minimum, which protects the environment. “Many people who have chosen WASHLET describe this experience as life-changing,” explains Hubertus Brüggemann at TOTO Europe. The remote control makes it possible to switch between different types of sprays and adjust the water temperature. People with limited mobility due to injury or aging will find WASHLET a great help and relief.

Shower toilet fits everywhere – even in small bathrooms

In addition to the cleansing feature, WASHLET has a number of other comfort options that may vary from model to model – like the automatic preheated seat with temperature setting, automatic flush or deodoriser. This keeps the air fresh and clean during and after use, and the next person won’t be surprised by unpleasant odours. Before WASHLET was available in Germany, bidets were the alternative to toilet paper – but these require space. A shower toilet fits in even small or guest bathrooms. It’s not even necessary to completely renovate the bathroom or wait to install a shower toilet until you build a new home: You can simply replace your conventional toilet with a shower toilet, and even install WASHLET in a rented flat.
