The American Standard ActiClean self-cleaning toilet cleans itself – combining the power of revolutionary VorMax flushing technology, which delivers the cleanest flush ever engineered, with a fully integrated self-cleaning system. Simply press a button, walk away, and let the toilet do the rest.
ActiClean eliminates the need for after-market add-on cleaning solutions that are unsightly, ineffective and may even damage toilets. This pioneering ActiClean toilet features a simplified, user-selected activation system at a price point favorable to a broad range of homeowners.
A flip-up door on the tank top houses the control panel for the cleaning system, which is activated at the user’s choice. For homes with small children, the cleaning function can be locked and the cleaning cycle can even be canceled mid-cycle, if needed.
Here’s how the ActiClean system works:
- The user presses the button for the preferred cleaning cycle: a Quick Clean that takes one minute; or a Deep Clean that offers an extended, 10-minute cleaning cycle.
- Cleaning solution travels through the designated channel in the tank and is mixed with water.
- The cleaner is released into the bowl, combined with the powerful VorMax jetted force, which allows the cleaner to completely scour the bowl from top to bottom.
- The cleaner soaks in the bowl for the chosen amount of time. Its fresh fragrance and foaming bubbles indicate it’s hard at work.
When the soaking time has ended, the system will automatically siphon the cleaning agent and rinse the bowl with clear water.
The bowl features a CleanCurve Rim that omits the rim cavity and holes inside the bowl where dirt and buildup can get trapped and hide. The toilet tank and bowl feature EverClean, a permanent finish that inhibits the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface. The EverClean finish repels dirt, helping the toilet stay cleaner longer.
