The new designs of the Toto s550e can add style to an otherwise drab or simple bathroom. The modern design of the lid is a clean line and had a sleek silhouette suitable for the more modern toilets. The other design is the classic beveled edge that is appropriate for traditional bathrooms. But the best features of the Toto s550e are the combination of technological advancements and its luxurious quality. This model boasts of the automatic opening and closing of the lid, which makes it an outstanding unit and when the lid opens when you approach it and closes when you move away from it is like from a science fiction movie. The automatic functions of the unit can be controlled using proximity sensors or it can be set up and operated by the remote control. The choice of which is dependent on who will be using the toilet. One of the most striking updates of the model is the presence of a LED nightlight that will provide enough light for you to use the toilet at night without having to use the bathroom lights. These special LED lights use blacklight bulbs that are easier to the eye and minimize glare.
To improve usability and accessibility of the Toto s550e, the model now comes with an updated remote control which offers two functions, the front side has all the buttons needed to operate the toilet seat bidet in a touch-button interface while the backside can be used for fine-tuning the said functions. Moreover, the remote can be programmed into two different user settings. So, there will be no need to find the settings that you think work best for you, you just key in the remote when you need to use the facilities to your preferences.
With even the best design and features, the cornerstone of the Toto s550e is in the strong dual action stream of the water from the bidet. The front and rear sprays have two modes, it can be soft or hard and will depend on who will use the toilet. The spray of the Toto s550e bidet is not that strong but it is very comfortable. It can be adjusted using five positions and five different pressures, while it can produce a consistently hot temperature of about 104 degrees.
The Toto s550e uses a heating system in which warm water is directly produced from the water source. The tankless water heater is a design integrated into the toilet bidet seats which makes for an unlimited supply of warm water when you use the toilet. The dryer on the model is also one of its strong suits. Previously, bidet seats are not recommended to have dryers as they can transfer the bacteria from the dirty toilet bowl to the person which is unsanitary and unsafe.
Moreover, a unique element that is only found in Toto s550e models is the Ewater+. This is a feature that produces mists of electrolyzed water over the bowl when the toilet is not in use and in between uses. This Ewater+ is made from clean water and will disinfect the bowl when it is not being used or when it becomes idle for 8 hours. The same model also cleans the nozzle water with this misting solution, it occurs automatically pre-wash and post-wash thereby ensuring that it only provides the cleanest and safest wash. Lastly, the model also comes with a heated seat, nozzle cleaning, and toilet freshener.
