With over 90 years in the industry, TOTO is the world’s largest plumbing manufacturer. While TOTO may be known for their toilets and innovative technologies in that field, they produce both residential and commercial plumbing fixtures and fittings, faucets, shower and flush valves, and urinals as well.
One of TOTO’s goals is to effectively balance between these three philosophies of universal design:
- Elegant and useful
- Beautiful and accessible
- Unobtrusive and flexible
By focusing on these values and catering to the needs of the customer first, TOTO creates each product with high performance, high quality, and high reliability in the heart of the organization.
TOTO has also been on the forefront of innovative technologies that maximize efficiency by saving money and saving water. The Double Cyclone® Flushing System utilizes gravity and centripetal force to result in a stronger flush that also maximizes cleaning while doing so. The E-Max® Flushing System is a simple and quiet solution to flushing 1.28 gallons while using 20 percent less water. The Dual-Max® Flushing System features an integrated control system that allows a selection of 0.9 GPF (gallons per flush) to 1.6 GPF maximizing efficiency. TOTO is committed to conservation and continuing to improve water-saving techniques.
