SAN DIEGO, PCBC (June 28, 2017) ― Keeping a sparkling clean bathroom just got easier with the American Standard ActiClean self-cleaning toilet. The ActiClean system is the toilet that cleans itself, combining the power of revolutionary VorMax flushing technology — which delivers the cleanest flush ever engineered — with a fully integrated self-cleaning system. Simply press a button, walk away, and let the toilet do the rest – it’s that easy.
The inventive technology of ActiClean resulted in it being named a 2017 Parade of Products winner by PCBC, for its innovation, practical application and design.
This pioneering ActiClean toilet provides the luxury of a toilet that cleans itself – featuring a simplified, user-selected activation system – at a price point favorable to a broad range of homeowners.
“The innovative ActiClean toilet was created based on consumer research. We found that consumers are excited about the idea of owning a self-cleaning toilet,” said Maha El Kharbotly, chief marketing officer for LIXIL Americas. “Our incredible product, engineering and design teams rose to the challenge, taking the groundbreaking VorMax flushing technology a step further by adding a cleaning component, and creating a self-cleaning system that is simple to use and maintain.”
ActiClean offers the choice of a one-minute Quick Clean or a 10-minute Deep Clean. When activated, cleaning solution is released into the bowl with the powerful VorMax jetted force and soaks for the selected amount of time. Then the system automatically siphons and rinses the bowl with water. The cleaning system runs independently from the normal toilet flushing operation, meaning the toilet will always flush, even if the cleaning cartridge or batteries have run out.
To offer additional ease-of-cleaning, the toilet includes a CleanCurve Rim that omits the rim cavity and holes inside the bowl where dirt and buildup can get trapped and hide. The entire ActiClean toilet bowl and tank feature EverClean, the brand-exclusive permanent finish that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface.
The high-efficiency VorMax flush uses a single powerful jet of 1.28 gallons of water per minute (gpm) to scrub the entire bowl and has been independently verified to clean the bowl two times better than conventional toilets*.
The list price for an ActiClean self-cleaning toilet is $608. Each toilet comes packed with one cleaning cartridge and a set of four AA batteries in the carton, along with the toilet tank, bowl and seat. Replacement American Standard cleaning cartridges have a list price of $14.99. The ActiClean toilet is available at select kitchen and bath showrooms nationwide.
