The NEOREST 750H has all the People-First Innovations that consumers have come
to expect – integrated personal cleansing system with warm,aerated water, warm
air dryer, and heated seat; auto open/close and auto flush; in-bowl catalytic
deodorizer; and energy- and water-saving features.

People-Centered Design
The new design NEOREST 750's extraordinary beauty is inspired by architecture,
long-view trends in global design, and extensive information about what people
need and want in TOTO products. Because TOTO's design teams recognize
contemporary styling does not look "contemporary" long, they are committed to
a long-view global design aesthetic – modern, clean, simple, and timeless --
that integrates design and function for a bathroom experience that pleases
each of homeowners' senses.

Ultra High-Efficiency Cyclone Dual-Flush System
The NEOREST 750H offers a new planet-friendly innovation: the ultra
high-efficiency Cyclone dual-flush technology, which consumes a mere
one-gallon of water per flush (gpf) for the full flush and 0.8 gpf for the
light. The new system builds on TOTO's patented Cyclone flushing technology,
which simultaneously releases two powerful water jets inside the bowl,
creating a whirlpool effect that effectively removes waste and cleans the
bowl's surface and rim more thoroughly and quietly than any other flushing

TOTO's new Ultra High-Efficiency Cyclone Dual-Flush System employs a reserve
water tank and pumping system inside the toilet that combines with the home's
direct water supply to realize its new ultra-high-efficiency dual-flush 1.0
gpf / 0.8 gpf flushing capability. To achieve this, TOTO engineers designed a
revolutionary flushing system in which the siphon jet is fed from water that
is pumped into the bottom of the bowl from the reserve tank, while the
powerful rim and bowl wash is suppled directly by home's water supply.

This cutting-edge flushing system is unaffected by a building's water pressure
– enabling the NEOREST 750Hs installed in high-rise, multi-family buildings
and the upper floors of single-family residences to achieve the same powerful
performance as those in low-rise buildings.

Actilight Cleansing Technology
The new ultra high-efficiency NEOREST 750H introduces the most complete bowl
cleansing system available by synergizing TOTO's patented flushing and
cleansing technologies to effectively rid the bowl of both visible and
invisible waste.

This advanced cleansing system starts with TOTO's eWater+ technology. Using
the incoming water supply, a pre-mist wets the bowl's surface preventing
waste's adherence 80% better than a dry bowl. After each flush, TOTO's eWater+
mists the bowl with electrolysed water, which has a slightly acidic pH value,
keeping the bowl fresh and clean longer.

Next, NEOREST 750H's bowl is glazed with TOTO's HYDROTECT titanium dioxide
coating and zirconium, giving it a lovely iridescent, mother-of-pearl
sensibility. Extremely hydrophilic, HYDROTECT makes it nearly impossible for
organic substances to adhere to the bowl's surface -- enabling waste, lime
scale, and mold to wash away with ease. Further, when combined with sunlight,
HYDROTECT triggers a photocatalytic process, which in which organic substances
are broken down. To achieve this, TOTO integrated a UV light in the seat lid
that is activated when the lid is closed. Once the UV light hits the
HYDROTECT's titanium dioxide coating on the toilet's bowl, photocatalysis
occurs, accelerating the decomposition of all organic substances in the bowl.

TOTO's new Actilight system results in a toilet bowl that remains incredibly
clean and fresh for months at a time.

Inclusive Design
The ultra high-efficiency NEOREST 750H is an example of TOTO Total Design.
TOTO works hard to exceed ADA and Universal Design principles to create
performance-designs that are even more inclusive. TOTO Total Design includes
its People-First Innovation and People-Centered Design principles.

The inclusive-design NEOREST is 17" from its base to the top of the seat,
which is the ergonomically correct height for a person to comfortably sit down
and rise from the unit with ease. Other inclusive-design features on the
NEOREST 750H include its integrated personal cleansing system,
auto-open/close, and auto flush features.
