Smart toilets are increasingly being used in public restrooms because of their efficiency, power and not having to refill after each flush. But even in the home, smart toilets have gained popularity. They're extremely sleek, stylish, automatic and much more efficient than a traditional tank toilet. There are many advantages to using these rather than the older style tank toilets. Here's what you should know.

How Automatic Public Toilets Work?

Unlike the old style tank style toilets, automatic public toilets use a small water reservoir that holds water and holds it until it's time to flush. It's a closed system. These toilets work on the same principle as your standard toilet with the exception of a smaller one. The waste is flushed through the drain at the same high pressure found in regular toilets. These systems don't require a large plumbing system like your normal toilets do.

Smart public toilet seats have a seat located under the bowl. This seat has a button or lever that you push while you flush. You can just flip your toilet seat to the "off" position rather than having to pull the seat away from the base to flush. Some models allow you to choose between high or low bidet sprayers.

The Traditional Toilets

Traditional toilet tanks are made from plastic and use a cold surface to hold the water. This cold surface can cause condensation to form on the inside of the tank. These leaks often come from the seal around the edge of the tank. A leaky tank can also result in a foul odor coming from the flushing of the toilet. These leaks and problems with toilet tank odor can be eliminated by using a non-metallic liner that goes up the inside of the tank to create an insulated seal and trap the moisture so no unpleasant smells or leaks occur.

Since smart toilets don't have a water holding tank, there is no longer a need for a water storage tank. The waste water goes into the bowl and the flushed water flows out of the bottom of the toilet bowl. The benefit of the constant flushing is the reduction of water waste by as much as half and a continuous water flow for the duration of the flush.

How the Water is consumed?

Less water consumption means less water usage. The smart toilets eliminate the need to have a large water tank and run more efficiently than the traditional toilets. They usually come equipped with a powerful flush meter to ensure that you get a powerful, wet flush each time. You won't get a strong flush from some models, but the models that do come with a powerful flush meter usually have a wider range of motion and have a greater volume of water capacity. With a wide variety of flush meters on the market, most smart toilets contain a high-performance flush meter to meet the needs of every consumer.

Some homeowners may be concerned about the size of the water supply line. The size of the water supply line is dependent upon the average household use. Most smart toilets consume only three gallons of water per flush. In the event that more water is needed than the system can handle, the toilet will pull excess water from the storage tank. The smart toilet will shut off when the water in the storage tank is used to make sure there is enough water for each flush. Some systems also include a mechanism that allows them to shut off the water supply line once the system is flushed, allowing a sudden stop in water usage.

A smart toilet has the benefits of a wall-mounted toilet without the installation problems. Wall-mounted toilets require an extensive amount of space. An automatic public toilet can fit into any location and take up very little room. The smart toilet requires little maintenance and will last many years. The smart toilet is a better alternative to the wall-mounted toilet because it is much cheaper. Although it takes longer to prepare to use than the wall-mounted toilet, the smart toilet lasts much longer and offers a better value for its price.
