Panasonic Corp. recently announced a breakthrough tankless toilet called “Arauno V,” according to newswire AFP Relax News. This isn’t one of those toilets where the tank is hidden in the wall, rather the toilet draws water directly from the home water supply. And the bowl is engineered like a tornado to cleanly circulate waste down the drain.
As you may know, in recent years, I bought an old, existing home originally built in 1958. It’s nothing fancy and not all that updated in the main areas, such as the bathrooms and kitchen, so I’ve been working on modernizing things little by little. One bathroom was so run down that we shut the door and didn’t use it after purchase.
But all this changed recently when HouseLogic, a resource by the National Association of Realtors, agreed to partner with me and Jetson Green to renovate a bathroom.
If you watch home improvement-type shows, you may have seen a water-efficient bathroom renovation on the DIY Network‘s latest episode of “Bath Crashers” with designer and contractor Matt Muenster. The episode — From Brown to Green — was filmed in a home in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and features a prominent flash of green color backing the vanity. But that’s not the only green in this bathroom.
