health hazards from "toilet plume" aerosol
It's no secret that toilets produce a plume of fine aerosol containing fecal bacteria, etc, that could be a health hazard.
I never gave this much thought until I put in a Toto about ten years ago--don't know exact model. If flushes very well, but there is a lot of agitation and some splashing of the bowl contents.
We need a couple of toilets and would like to choose ones with a less agitated flush, that hopefully would spew less aerosol.
Must be a builder grade CST703 with washdown bowl.
The siphon jet Toto bowls don't do that.
Has anybody compared toilets from this point of view? Suggestions?

We need to keep learning.....
Well, yes, I had the same thought myself.
But on the other hand, we had lead paint, leaded gas, mercury, DDT, no seat belts, and other stuff few would accept now. We aren't all dead, but some of us and our kids have been harmed by these once-accepted products. Don't we need to keep learning....?
Seems to me the current generation of toilets, back to siphon jets and some swirl in the bowl, are a lot calmer in action. Does this really make a difference in their plumes? I don't know but the subject seems interesting.
