Basic Functions of a Smart Toilet

The most popular features of smart toilets include heated seats, bidet functions, and automatic lid opening/closing. They come in various types such as instant heating, storage heating, with or without a tank. To enable washing and cleaning functions, a fresh water supply is necessary. When installing a smart toilet, you need to connect an additional fresh water pipe to the tank and an electrical source for the heating functions.

Tools Needed for Installation

Installing a smart toilet and connecting the water tank and pipes doesn’t require overly complicated tools. Generally, a flathead and Phillips screwdriver, a wrench, and possibly a water pump will suffice. An electric drill can also be helpful for drilling holes and securing screws.

Installation Tip 1: Power Outlets and Distance

Most smart toilets are powered by plug-in cords, but due to the high humidity in bathrooms, extension cords are not recommended as they can lead to short circuits or fires. Smart toilet cords are usually one meter long, so the ideal distance between the toilet and the outlet should be within 0.8 meters.

Installation Tip 2: Toilet Types

Smart toilets are widely used in Japan, and many models are made there. However, be aware that most Japanese-made smart toilets are not waterproof, which can be a problem if your bathroom does not have a separate wet and dry area. Additionally, there are multiple water tank configurations including separate tank and toilet body designs, corner tank styles, single-unit designs, concealed tanks, and fully automatic models. Ensure that the toilet you choose is compatible with your bathroom space.

Installation Tip 3: Distance from the Toilet to the Wall

Smart toilets come in various designs, including wall-mounted models. Measure the toilet’s dimensions and consider the space it will occupy once installed. Ensure there is enough room for the remote control and to replace the deodorizing filter. For models with a wireless remote, a distance of 260 mm is sufficient for installation.

Installation Tip 4: Toilet Dimensions

Different toilets have different dimensions and installation requirements. For example:

  • Long-type toilets have a bowl diameter of 355-380 mm and seat length of 470 mm.
  • Short-type toilets have a bowl diameter of 320-350 mm and seat length of 440 mm.
  • European-style toilets have a more square-shaped bowl with a diameter of 310-330 mm and a seat length of 420 mm.

Each type has two installation holes for the seat, spaced 140 mm apart for long and short types, and 155 mm apart for European styles.
