    Default TOTO Washlet - info please

    Does anyone have any first-hand information on the Toto Washlet? can it be added to a Vespia or a Soiree? How do you know which one of the Washlets fit? Does the washlet come on automatically or does it wait for you to tell it when to come on (in case you are spending time reading while on the toilet? And does the soft down - or self closing part of the lid wait til you get off the toilet or does it come down at a pre-determined time limit - which may be annoying if you are still on the toilet or throwing up! Oh I almost forgot - what happens if/when I need to change the toilet seat???

    Don't have a washlet yet. However, here's the chart about which washlets work with which toto toilets. http://www.totousa.com/Portals/0/Bro...omp-1009_2.pdf

    My understanding is that the Washlet only does stuff when you ask it to. You won't get a shower or konked in the head while throwing up.

    Changing the seat should be almost as simple as changing any toilet seat, except you have to turn off the water to the toilet first.

    Pretty much any TOTO elongated bowl will take any elongated washlet.
    Only the 400 series has the self opening seat. It has a motion sensor, and yes it's smart enough to know when you've had too much to drink.
    Changing the seat is done by pushing in the button on the side, which releases the seat from the holder.
    If you want to use the washing function, you need to press a button and call the function out. It's not smart enough to know what you are reading; if it's funny stuff, you may hear it chuckle.

    We travel to Japan at least twice per year (family) and have been using Washlets for over a quarter of a century.

    Yes.

    But there is a better option. In 2011, We replaced one of our toilets (located in a small powder room that our guests use when we have a dinner party) with a Toto Vespin II, and upgraded that toilet earlier this year by the addition of an Inax Clessence advanced toilet seat (which we purchased from Terry Love, who sells it for an excellent price, and even offers free shipping). Here is an image that shows how the Vespin II looks in context in the 33 inch-wide powder room with the Inax Clessence mounted: Name:  DSCF4566.jpg

    Why, when we purchased a Toto toilet, did we mate it with an Inax advanced toilet seat? I addressed that matter in a post in another thread in this forum a couple of days ago, here: http://www.terrylove.com/forums/show...l=1#post348384

    As to the other questions that you ask, we are hosting a large dinner party here later this week, and we anticipated that some of our guests may need to use the powder room, and might have questions similar to yours. So, to reduce the intimidation factor, we wrote and printed out the following instructions and taped the page to the wall next to the toilet. Here it is: Name:  FearNot.jpg

    Seems like you made a lot of effort to find tasteful ways to explain things. Congratulations! You may find bidet-seat owners borrowing your idea!
