Yes, you can thank German engineering for this easy-clean toilet!

Award-winning technology pairs with modern design in the fixtures we’ve been waiting for

Who wouldn’t love a toilet that requires less cleaning?

How about one that also makes the cleaning we do undertake easier than ever?

Thanks to the German engineering behind the Grohe Chinaware Collection, homeowners across the Lower Mainland have reason to celebrate those wins, notes Michelle Braden, Marketing & Communications Manager with Splashes Bath & Kitchen.

Recently launched in Canada, the collection includes water-efficient toilets and sinks in both drop-in and undermount configurations, all in the bright, Alpine White finish. Choose from the elegant Essence line or the sleek, modern Eurocube design.

And with Grohe being among the Lixil group of companies, which also includes well-known, trusted brands like American Standard, “they have all the engineering and expertise that comes along with it,” Braden says. “We’re pretty excited about this line!”

Here’s what makes the Chinaware collection a game-changer:

  • Quick-release, soft-close seat – The soft-close toilet seat has been a welcome addition to anyone trying to sleep through a partner’s late-night bathroom breaks, but how about a seat whose quick-release makes it a snap to clean? No more trying to wedge the brush in and around knobs and crevices … this seat quickly clicks off the bowl, for easy cleaning.
  • Technology meets the toilet – So the cleaning’s easier, but what if you could also extend the time between cleanings? Grohe’s newest collection adds two award-winning advanced technologies to help you do just that. InfinaBright inhibits growth of stain- and odour-causing bacteria, plus mould and mildew on the surface. In addition, DreamClean features an innovative rim design that releases powerful a rush of water, scrubbing the bowl top‑to‑bottom with every flush. The result is less time cleaning the toilet for you and fewer cleaning products going down the drain.
  • Increased efficiency – In addition to the cleaning boosts, the water-efficient toilets also come in either a 1.28 gallons-per-flush tank or a 1.28/1.0 gpf dual-flush option. “Part of Grohe’s mission is to support the environment and you can see that in their engineering,” Braden notes.
