Neorest 600

I’m starting to think I need to add a new toilets category to my blog. I couldn’t resist posting about the Toto Neorest 600. While I thought my incinerating toilet was pricey in the $1,000-$1,500 range, I found the the Neorest 600 listed at $7,000, but available at the low, low discount price of $3,400 from The Factory Oulet.

As one would hope, nay, demand, this is no ordinary toilet. No sirree, it’s “The First Tankless Toilet and Integrated Washlet Cleansing System”. Sure, there’s the “gentle front-and back-aerated warm water spray, which can be regulated for preferred water pressure and temperature”. But wait, there’s more. The “technologically-advanced features include oscillating spray massage, heated seat, automatic catalytic air deodorizer, and warm air dryer”.

Even better, it recognizes your arrival, just like a pet racing to greet you at the door.

“The NEOREST’s lid automatically opens whenever an individual approaches it. If one continues to stand in front of the NEOREST, as would a man, the toilet seat automatically rises also. When the individual leaves, the NEOREST automatically flushes and the lid automatically closes.”

Wow, not only does it say hello, it waves goodbye.

As we delve into the astonishing technology powering this beast of a disposal device, we learn that it has a “revolutionary flush engine”. I’ll let you read part of the description and not say a word myself.

“During the first stage ‘Rim-Scouring Cyclonic Motion’ a nozzle located at the back of the bowl fires a high-speed stream of water that scours the rim and initiates the water’s Cyclone action.”

Perhaps we’ve read too much already. I really don’t think I need to say anything more about the “Siphonic Jet Action” and the “final rim scouring”.

I swear I’m not making this up. Go take a look for yourself.

    I’ve also been shopping for toilets, and came across the menacingly named Kohler “Peacekeeper toilet“. No, it doesn’t fire a nuke at you if you leave the seat up, it just won’t flush until you put the seat down!

    Wow, the Peacekeeper toilet! That’s certainly a different kind of peace. At least it’s a “seat-actuated flush” instead of a flush-actuated ejection seat.

    The first tankless terlit? What about the sloaqn flush valves. No tanks

    I actually have this toilet – and let me tell you – it’s worth every penny!

    You are cracked! I am currently in the throes of shopping for a toilet and that’s when I stumbled onto your insane prose on the incinolet. Then I saw your reviews for yes, the toilet above. If you say anything else I’m going to go blind from the tears. However, I do wonder if an incinolet could be operated off grid and how many dedicated batteries would that require do you think?

    What’s that they say? Toilet humor will get you flattery. Hmm, maybe that’s not exactly it.

    I think powering an incinerating toilet off of batteries is a brilliant idea. But, will it still incinerate?

    The manual says a full cycle takes 1.5-2 kw hours of electricity. So, let’s say 2 kw hours for a 2 hour burn cycle, thus a steady use of 1 kilowatt.

    The Pedal-a-Watt can be used with a bicycle to produce electricity. A top pro cyclist could maybe produce 500 watts for an extended period of time, so you would need two of them, perhaps with a third to substitute in when one gets tired. But those guys are pretty costly, so I don’t think that would be economical. Awesome to have around the house, but noisy and expensive.

    Assuming we used Lithium-ion batteries, we would need almost 8 kg (or 17 lbs.) of batteries to generate enough power. Reference: Running them for 2 hours would likely discharge the batteries mostly, if not fully. So, you would probably need to have another source of energy to recharge them after each burn. Solar panels could work, as long as you don’t poo at night. Or on cloudy days.

    Therefore, intriguing idea, but likely not feasible with current technology. But keep your thinking cap on.
