The toilet has Toto’s 3D Tornado flush system that uses a series of nozzles to increase the flushing capability of the toilet using minimal water. In combination with the ultra-smooth ceramic glaze this helps keep the toilet cleaner for longer and minimizes the need for manual cleaning.
There is an automatic opening and closing of the lid, which then triggers the automatic flush. The seat is heated and the washing feature of the bidet can be adjusted for both direction and temperature. These functions along with the variable warm air drying can be adjusted via the wireless remote control pad. This is one of the best rated toilets in the market.

Design / Materials
The toilet is made from vitreous china with an ultra-smooth finish that inhibits the growth of bacteria and the development of stains.
This toilet and bidet combined has a dual flush system that can be triggered automatically when the seat closes itself after use.

This model uses a combination of a highly efficient flushing system along with a high-gloss surface to minimize the need for manual cleaning. The surface of the toilet helps prevent the buildup of stains as well as the growth of mold and bacteria.
The dual flush of 1.28 GPF and 0.9 GPF are well within the specification for a high-efficiency toilet (HET) and the MS970CEMFG is Water Sense approved. This allows, in some geographical areas a rebate on your water bills. Check the EPA webpage here to check eligibility.
Ease of Installation
The toilet uses a standard 12” rough in to the waste pipe. This toilet can be a little more involved that installing a conventional toilet, especially if as a replacement. The water pipe on existing installations may need moving due to the enclosing skirt interfering with the outlet. A 120v electrical supply is also required. The second page of this pdf from Toto gives the necessary dimensions.
