We, the Indians are typically either cleanliness-freak or the annoying unhygienic people, there’s hardly any in between. We always believed water is the only best way to clean after our shitty works! Most of our diseases are also caused due to unclean water or our unhygienic behaviors. So, Smart Toilets are something we really do need.
What are Smart Toilets?
Smart Toilets are technologically advanced toilets with sensors for automatic flushing, smart bidets, seat warming, and lots more. Like you don’t have to use your hands to push the handle or button for flushing your toilet, it will flush on its own once the sensor is activated. It also saves water, by automatically adjusting the amount of water to be flushed out.
