OK at the risk of sounding like a dummass, I gotta ask what power rating means, as in
power rating 120V 60 Hz 1281W, which are the specs for a Toto Neorest toilet.
From what I can gather it doesn't seem to mean it uses 1281W, but I been wrong before.

However if I am right is there any way to deduce just how much power it does use just from the power rating?

TIA for any help .
