Japan’s leading toilet manufacturer, Toto, is providing free repairs to 180,000 toilets after three reported incidents of its Z series catching fire.
“Fortunately nobody was using the toilets when the fire broke out and there were no injuries,” a company spokesman said.
“The fire would have been just under your buttocks.”
Toto builds high-tech toilets with built-in electric bidets, which caused the fires.
The versatile Z series also features a power dryer, a ‘tornado wash’ flush, a pulsating massage spray, and an automatic lid.
I don’t care if the repairs are free. If I owned one of these toilets, I would much rather buy a new one that has no electric accessory/chance of flaming my backside.
