The Top Hat Toilet has an access panel located in the space between the back of the toilet lid and the tank.  Using two nylon bolts (see below), the panel door can be opened at the top of the S-trap to afford full access to the drain line.  The obstruction can then be removed quickly by pushing the clog back into the toilet using a grabber tool, which comes with the toilet.  The business’ maintenance crew can fix the problem and tidy up instead of calling expensive plumbers or other service personnel.

Nylon Bolts

The Top Hat Toilet retails for $550.00 USD. This is considerably more than current toilets. But the owner needs to consider the value of the toilet AND the maintenance costs over time. The life expectancy of a toilet is more than 20 years. The Top Hat Toilet has no moving parts. If one clog is removed  in the toilet’s lifespan, the extra cost has been paid several times over.

In the commercial environment, TIME IS MONEY. Hospitals, hotels, bars and restaurants can lose the use of a room, lose customers and suffer significant damage when restrooms are out of service. The cost goes beyond the actual repair itself. This sector provides the greatest savings and where businesses can realize their ROI.

Toilets are currently being manufactured and are currently negotiating with our partners to scale capacity to meet domestic and international demands.

Perhaps the most stubborn clogs are caused when random objects are accidentally flushed. For example: a billfold, sunglasses, phone or purse falls into the toilet and the automatic flush valve crams it in the S-trap. Snaking the toilet’s drain or removing the toilet are the only way to remove “hard clogs” such as these unless you have a Top Hat Toilet.
