ActiClean is the self-cleaning toilet that cleans itself and removes stains with the simple press of a button. It employs the power of the exclusive, award-winning VorMax flushing technology, which delivers a clean flush, with a fully integrated, user-activated self-cleaning system. The user simply presses a button, walks away and the ActiClean system will scour the bowl with cleaning fluid, then soak and rinse for a sparkling clean bowl.
The ActiClean toilet has also been recognized with the 2016 GREEN GOOD DESIGN Award in the Green Products category for its forward-thinking innovation and sustainability.
