Toto Neorest 550H

Summary

The Toto Neorest 550H includes many Japanese toilet style features to make your bathroom experience comfortable, luxurious and hassle-free. The 550H is Toto’s evolution of the 500H, with the primary difference between the two models being design. This Toto comes with all of the usual luxuries of a high-end toilet including a nightlight, heated seat, and adjustable water pressure, air drying and water temperature.

Regarding features, the 550H includes many of the same elements as the 500H,, but with slight upgrades. Check out this video directly from Toto, which is a good overview of the features in the 550H.

The Good

  • Sleek skirted design makes the unit visually-appealing and suitable for any type of bathroom
  • The tankless design makes this unit the best choice for small bathrooms.
  • Water-saving feature uses a 0.8 or 1.0 gallon flush, using much less water than traditional toilets
  • Fully customizable, with several options for water heat, water pressure, and heated seats

The Bad

  • The Nightlight function allows the user to use the toilet at night without turning on any lights, but some users reported trouble finding the right buttons on the washlet unit
  • Some users reported the installation instructions are sub par, so its best to download installation instructions from the internet or watch Youtube videos
  • Not built to Universal Height, which can make it uncomfortable for taller users.

Bottom line

If you’d like to experience the comforts of a hi-tech Japanese style toilet, the Toto Neorest 550H is truly a premiere choice. The 550H provides all the necessary functions and features to make your experience amazing, and is still one of the more affordable models offered by Toto. The water-saving flush also helps users to save money (and the environment!) in the long-run, saving an estimated 3500 gallons of water per year. One thing to consider is that some users reported that the unit was too small in some cases; so if you are over 6 ft' tall, you may want to look into the next evolution of the Toto's Neorest which was built to Universal Height standard.
