In “what will they think of next?” tech news, Kohler has recently unveiled their latest bath & kitchen innovation—the touchless toilet.
According to a Leeds University study, germs are sprayed up to 10 inches above toilet seats with every open flush. Whenever you reach for the flush lever on your toilet, there’s a chance you’re coming into contact with a cocktail of bacteria.
Kohler’s Touchless Toilet Technology aims to solve this germ problem with (literally) the wave of a hand. This motion-detecting technology activates flushing when you place your hand over the sensor mounted under the tank lid. No touching, no surface germs, no unsightly flush handles!
Worried about your loved ones coming into contact with toilet germs, but aren’t in the market for a new toilet? You can upgrade your toilet with a retrofit Touchless kit or buy the system built-in on Kohler’s San Souci and Cimarron toilets. Trust the (touchless) flush!
With toilets that utilize Kohler’s Touchless Toilet technology, a no-touch sensor is mounted on the underside of the toilet tank lid. This sensor is powered by 4 AA batteries.
Once this sensor is installed, an electromagnetic field is projected through the top of the tank lid. This enables the sensor to sense your hand, causing the toilet to flush—no handles, levers, or buttons! A special decal is included in order to indicate where the touchless sensor is located inside of the tank.
When you need to replace the batteries, the sensor unit will beep five times when activated. Touchless toilet flushing is simple and hassle-free!
Love the classic look of the Cimarron? Kohler’s traditional toilet now comes equipped with touchless technology! Boasting a 1.28-gallon flush (good for the environment!) and a powerful flush, this toilet is an innovative addition to the Cimarron collection. Now you can coordinate your Cimarron products plus cut down on germs!
Beauty meets brains with the contemporary Kohler San Souci toilet, now equipped with the touchless technology function! This sleek, one-piece toilet completes Kohler’s San Souci collection of products. AquaPiston technology means this toilet provides a powerful-yet-water-saving 1.28-gallon flush. As with the Cimarron, this toilet comes pre-installed with Touchless Toilet Technology for a touchless, germ-free flush!
Looking to upgrade your toilet? This retrofit touchless kit is easily installed in most canister and flapper toilets. In fewer than 20 minutes, equip your toilet with a germ-free flush! Simply wave your hand over the sensor (as indicated by the included indicator decal), and watch in awe as your toilet flushes.
Kohler’s Touchless Technology enables homeowners to enjoy a germ-free, touchless flush.
