Automatic Toilet Flusher How It Works

Automatic toilet flushing is a technology that automatically adjusts its operation based on changes in toilet conditions such as water or waste exiting the toilet. This mode of automatic toilet flushing was introduced as a way to reduce human interaction with toilets and decrease waste intake.

By having the toilet system work alongside you as you walk into it, you are more likely to use it regularly which increases your overall sanitation compliance. Additionally, by having the system adjust its operation based on user input, such as turning a knob or switch, you are more likely to use it consistently which reduces negligence and incidences of loss and theft.

This mode of automatic toilet flushing is commonly referred to as smart toilets or intelligent toilets. There are several different types of smarttoilets, such as feature-based or user-dependent.


Water supply valve

When a user flushes the toilet, the valve inside the tank opens and closes to let water into the system. This allows your toilet to continue to function as a flushing toilet.

Similarly, when a sink or dishwasher is cleaned, water enters the system through the plumbing. This water stays in place as it is used, washed, and piled away in a dishwasher or washing machine.

As it sits, this water has a low probability of growing bacteria and viruses due to being in an enclosed space. However, if you were to open your windows or turn on an outside fan breeze fresh air into your home, then you would add more bacteria and viruses into your home.

This is why it is important to have an automatic flush toilet that will shut itself off when necessary.

Flush valve

The flush valve is what lets water into the tank to flushes the bowl. When you open the lid, a flushing valve opens and closes to let water into the tank.

When you close the lid, a lock keeps the lid from opening again. This prevents drainage due to excess water remaining in the tank.

To change your flatmates, you need to open the flap to insert your new flatmate. You then need to close it and verify it works before leaving it alone. If there are any problems, it may require replacing both of them.

If you have a separate toilet and someone shares your apartment with you, they may need their own toilet flusher too. Most cities provide them through P&G’s Clearlink program.

Float ball

A float ball is a specialised shaped area of toilet tissue that surrounds and protects the flushing mechanism. This cleverly designed area helps to protect your plumbing system from damage due to excess toilet paper.

When someone uses a paper piece, it must be floated into the correct position within the float ball before the flushing mechanism plunges the water through the bowl. This process takes a little practice, but it is ultimately safer than using a toilet plunger!

If you have a very large or heavy load to flush, then you may need two toilets: one for your everyday needs and one for overflow purposes.

Power source

Most automatic Toilets flusher systems are powered by a battery that holds the flushing algorithm. The processor in the tank works with an app to determine when water is needed and if it’s available, it will add it into the system.

This system requires a power source in order to work. This includes having to input a code to start flushing, as well as updating and changing codes during changes in toilet function. This keeps protection from unauthorized users who may gain access to your toilet.

If someone were to break into your home, they would have to deal with these protected toilets. When entering a new home or business, someone has to provide the code in order for them to automatically turn on the toilets.


When a user flushes the toilet, the device scans the water flow and automatically turns on the water supply and flushed feature. This feature allows the user to manually turn on the flush button to complete the flushing process.

This wireless toilet flusher device is ideal for people with mobility issues, such as Alzheimer’s patients or young adults who may not remember how to flush a toilet by themselves. This can help save money in cleanup bills as well!

This smart toilet flusher does more than just flush the waste; it tracks how often someone uses it to determine when it needs to be flushed. When enough time has passed, it automatically switches itself on so that another person can use it!

This way, you never have to worry about cleaning your bowl or seal because you have old waste mixing with new. The smart toilet flusher tracks how often someone uses it and determines when it needs to be switched on so that others can use it.

Timer switch

If the toilet is not flushed in a set amount of time, a timer switch turns on the flushing system. This switch occurs inside each toilet, and when it is turned on for a set amount of time, it closes the drain and opens the flushing system.

This switch connects to an irrigation system that controls when the toilet is flushed and when the flush goes through to the sewers. The irrigation system ensures that toilets are always running while they are being flushed so that all water runs out properly.

When the irrigation system senses that a toilet has been open for longer than required, it switches on the flushing system to ensure that all wash hands and dishes are done.

Plunger rod & piston

The plunger rod starts at the tank, where you deposit a liquid or washable item such as wipes. The washable container needs to have a place to sit when the flush mechanism is activated.

The liquid container needs to be child proofed because once the flush mechanism is activated, it must be operated by an adult. The wipe container can be used by a child, but not an adult!

Bullet point: Cost Cost of an automatic toilet flusher is around $15-20, and you can buy them at most stores that sell bathroom supplies. They are easy to install and use, and will prevent some little children from using the toilet!

The cost of an automatic toilet flusher depends on which one has the most features that you want! Some have audible alerts while others do not.

Float chamber

When a user flushes a toilet, water travels through the flush valve and into the bowl. Unfortunately, some of these water cannot be flushed away. This includes blood, tissue, and grease particles.

If you have a large load, you may have to wait longer for the water to flow through the flush valve. This is why automatic flusher devices are such a big hit! They track how much water is in the bowl and count how many flushes before switching to an automated mode where you need to flush yourself out.

These devices are very expensive, starting at around $40. You can find some for less if they are cheap models, but these still will not work if the person has an extra-large intestine that wants to re-route itself into a toilet on an everyday basis.
