ISH 2013: Advanced Toilet Mania
Technology, design, new features, water efficiency: nearly every "sanitary wear" manufacturer at ISH 2013 presented a water closet that consumed even less water than the previous model, would rinse and dry the "affected area(s)", flush and close up automatically. On display here the NUMI by Kolher. Interesting detail: the US plumbing code requires a water surface of 6x8 inches, much larger than what the European code requires. So do not expect this small footprint model on your local big box stores yet! As we would expect, the US model is larger and its list price is a whopping $6390. Ouch!
