What is the difference between a Toto Washlet and a Washlet+?
As you browse Toto washlets, you may notice some models include a “+” in the title, such as the Toto Washlet+ C5. Washlet+ models have all the same features and silhouettes as their counterparts but are designed to be installed on Toto toilets. When paired with a Toto toilet, the cords and hose of the Washlet+ models are hidden, making for a cleaner look.
Although non-Washlet+ bidet seats can be installed on Toto toilets, a Toto Washlet+ model cannot be installed on a non-Washlet+ compatible toilet.
Note that Washlet+ versions of Toto bidet seats may be pricier, but you have the added benefit of hidden cords and a hose. If the product description of a Toto bidet says it has a “Connect+” option, this usually means the washlet has a Washlet+ counterpart.
Can a Toto Washlet be installed on any toilet?
Most Toto Washlets can be installed on non-Toto toilets, provided the correct size and shape are used. Toto Washlet+ models are not compatible with non-Toto toilets.
For elongated toilet bowls, Toto recommends that there are at least 18.5” from mounting holes to the front of the bowl, 2” from the front face of the tank to the mounting holes, and 5.5” between the center of each mounting hole.
For round washlets, Toto recommends the toilet has 16.5” from mounting holes to the front of the bowl, 5.5” between the mounting hole centers, and 1.75” between the front face of the tank and the mounting holes. Keep in mind that some, like the C2 and C5, do not have a round toilet bowl option.

How much does a Toto washlet cost?
Toto washlets range from a few hundred dollars to over $1000 depending on the model and luxury features you want. The Toto Washlet A100 and C2 are popular for their low price-point and suite of practical and comfort features. Although the Toto Washlet s550e is priced over $1000, the luxury bidet includes all the features Toto can offer in a seat, including a sleek modern design option and an automatic lid.
