Toto Neorest 750H vs 700H Reviews – All There is to Know
What is the Difference between Toto Neorest 750H and 700H?
If you are looking to buy the best smart toilet, Toto Neorest 750H and the Toto Neorest 700H should be in your radar alongside the Kohler Veil intelligent toilet.
Two alternatives to Toto Neorest 750H and 700H used to be Toto Neorest 550H and 500H which were very popular and successful. The production of the two toilets models has however been discontinued.
Toto Neorest 550H was replaced with the Toto Neorest AH while Toto Neorest 500H was replaced with the Toto Neorest RH. These 2 new models are ADA-compliant while the Toto Neorest 550H and 500H are not.
So, what is the difference between Toto Neorest 750H and the Toto Neorest 700H? Or rather which toilet model is the best to buy?
The main difference between Toto Neorest 750H and 700H is that Toto Neorest 750H uses a baked-in photocatalytic glaze to clean the bowl periodically. It is activated by an integrated UV light underneath the seat lid. Toto Neorest 700H does not have this feature.
The UV light only comes on when the toilet lid is down. Toto Neorest 750H is therefore hygienically more thorough than the 700H but it costs way more as well.
This is however not to say that Toto Neorest 700H is unhygienic. Just like the 750H, it uses Toto’s ewater+ (electrolyzed water) to disinfect the nozzle and the bowl before you use the toilet.
The question therefore to buy either Toto Neorest 750H or 700H depends on an individual. If you feel like you need the extra cleaning by the 750H then go for it otherwise settle for 700H seeing that all of their other features are similar.

Toto Neorest 750H Review
As we have seen Toto MS993CUMFX#01 Neorest 750H goes a little ‘deeper’ in bowl cleaning than the Toto Neorest 700H. Toto refers to this technology as the Actilight technology. So, how does the Actilight technology work?
Toto Neorest 750H is coated with a photocatalytic glaze that is both durable and hydrophilic (is attracted to water). When you close the seat lid, the integrated UV light underneath it turns on for an hour, interacting with the glaze to release activated oxygen that breaks down the waste.
This technology is environmentally safe and does not also harm the glaze. Since the Toto Neorest 750H’s seat lid closes automatically after you are done using the toilet, the Actilight technology does not require any output from your end.
If the toilet has not been in use for 8 hours, it automatically sprays the bowl with electrolyzed water. After 10 hours, the UV light also turns on and the self-cleaning process begins.
This is the feature that is missing in the Toto Neorest 700H. It however makes the 750H quite a pricey toilet.
Toto Neorest 700H Review
This is the bestselling model among all Toto Neorest toilets. In all fairness, it is quite a good toilet as most people don’t really see the need to pay the extra cash to buy the 750H since the 700H still has the ewater+ feature which is quite thorough in bowl and wand disinfection.
I don’t know why and how but the Toto Neorest 750 is double the cost of the Toto Neorest 700H. If you don’t feel like you really need the Actilight cleaning technology then my advice is to simply buy the Toto Neorest 700H.
Now that we have seen the difference between Toto Neorest 750H and 700H, let us look at all their other features which makes them some of the best smart toilets in the market.
Ewater+ and Bowl Premist
Electrolyzed water is a proven disinfectant in the food industry, so Toto basically borrowed the idea and applied it to the Neorest toilets and their washlets. This features works automatically.
Since the toilet is fitted with a sensor, it will notice you approaching. The toilet immediately pre-mists the bidet wand and the bowl with the electrolyzed water making it sanitary to use. The process is then repeated after you have used the toilet and left.
Apart from disinfecting the bowl, this feature also makes it hard for waste to stick on the bowl. According to Toto’s research findings which I have also ascertained on my own, a wet bowl is more effective in waste elimination than a dry one.
Auto Lid Opening and Closing
As you approach the toilet, the sensor will notice your movements towards it prompting the lid to automatically lift off. Once your business is done and it’s time to leave, you don’t need to turn and put the lid down.
It will automatically close slowly without a slam. In essence, you will not need to touch any part of the toilet with your hands.
This prevents the spread of germs from the toilet to yourself and to other toilet users. It also helps a lot if you have limited mobility.
Toto Neorest toilets are marketed as the best toilets ever and I believe they are indeed. They are more of a spa treatment than just a toilet.
Both Toto Neorest 750H and 700H use warm water that can be adjusted through 5 different temperature levels to cleanse you. The water pressure also has 5 different settings for you to choose your most comfortable level.
It offers both feminine and posterior cleansing which is made possible by the fact that the bidet wand can be adjusted back and forth. This also makes it usable by people of different sizes without the need to move about your body.
The feminine/front wash is gentler than the posterior/rear wash, which has a narrow but strong spray for thorough cleansing.
You can also select a rear soft wash, which is basically a wider but soft spray to clean over a wider area. A front soft cleanse options delivers a wider water spray with low pressure.
Toto Neorest toilets also offers oscillating and pulsating wash functions. Selecting an oscillating wash function will have the nozzle moving back and forth in quick succession to clean over a bigger surface area.
A pulsating wash involves the use of alternating strong and soft water sprays to deliver a massaging sensation. Both of this wash functions can be run concurrently.
Warm Air Dryer and Deodorizer
As soon as you are done washing, a warm air dryer will take over and starting blowing warm air all over rear and front until you are completely dry. The air dryer has 5 adjustable temperature settings.
An automatic air deodorizer will then instantly kick in to deal with any lingering undesired odors. It uses powerful carbon filters where the air surrounding the toilet is drawn in and hence it does note “clone” the odor.
As you can see, both of these toilets have quite a number of functions with adjustable settings. Sometimes it can feel cumbersome when you have to keep selecting all these settings every time you go the bathroom.
Toto Neorest 750H and 700H toilets therefore provide you with 2 user presents where you can save and forget your desired wash settings. Every time you use the toilet after that, you will only need to select your already selected settings and voila!
Take your time to study the Toto Neorest 750H manual to know how to save your selected water pressure and temperature levels as well as other wash functions.
Wireless Remote Control
Toto Neorest 750H and 700H come with a very easy to use wireless remote control. Every feature is clearly labeled on the remote control against the button you are supposed to press.
While you can mount the remote on the wall adjacent to the toilet, it would be even more ideal if you can also buy the Toto Neorest remote control stand.
Instead of turning to your side to select functions on the remote, the stand gives you a chance to do so while facing straight forward. The stand also doubles up as a toilet paper holder. Having back up toilet paper in the bathroom does not hurt.
Both Toto Neorest 750H and 700H toilets are made of porcelain. As you know, porcelain by nature is a porous substance and hence the final product has tiny holes where waste can embed making it very hard to clean
Cefiontect glaze is used to coat these toilets as well as other Toto toilets which leaves them as smooth as mirror. This inhibits the adherence of debris and waste making the toilet super easy to clean.
Their skirted design devoid of nooks and crannies also ensures that there is nowhere for dirt to hide. This combined with their Premist feature makes cleaning Toto Neorest 750H and 700H a breeze.
Tornado Flushing System
Toto Neorest 750H and 700H use the revolutionary tornado flushing system. The tornado flushing system is designed to use as little water as possible but deliver a powerful flush.
Instead of the usual rim holes on the bowl, the toilets have a 2 powerful nozzles, one on each side of the bowl. When you flush the toilet, water comes out through these nozzles in form of a vortex/cyclone.
This forms a whirlpool inside the bowl which apart from being really effective in waste elimination helps to scrub and rinse the bowl. These being a dual flush toilets, they give you the chance to either use 0.8 gallons of water per flush or just 1 gallon.
Ideally, you use the 0.8 gallons to flush down liquids and the 1 gallon to flush the solids. Due to their low water consumption Toto Neorest 750H and 700H are certified by the EPA’s WaterSense and CALGreen.
They can therefore be sold in every part of the United States including Texas and California. Toilets sold in these states should not have a higher rating than 1.28 gallons per flush.
Toto Neorest 750H and 700H are tankless toilets. They do not have a water tank like other toilets but instead use a small pump which pumps water from the supply line straight to the bowl when flushed.
Sitting on either the Toto Neorest 750H or 700H feels like sitting on a chair. The distance from the floor to the top of their toilet seats is 17.25 inches.
These are therefore comfort height toilets. They make it really easy to sit and stand from toilet and are hence compliant with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which requires toilets to have a seat height of between 17 and 19 inches.
The other dimensions of the Toto Neorest 750 and 700H are:
- Depth: 31.4 inches
- Width: 17.625 inches
- Height: 20.75 inches
- Rough-in: 12 inches
A toilet’s rough-in is the distance between its rear wall and the center of the drainpipe. Make sure you have a 12-inch rough-in and not a 10 or 14-inch one.
Heated Seat and Nightlight
You don’t have to worry about freezing on a toilet on a cold winter morning. Both Toto Neorest 750H’s and 700H’s bidet toilet seats are heated throughout the day and night. They come with 5 temperatures settings so that you can choose the one you are most comfortable with.
During the night a cool blue LED light illuminates the bowl so that you can easily use the toilet at night without needing to turn on the bright bathrooms lights, something irritating especially if you are straight from bed and don’t want to lose your sleep.
When you order either a Toto Neorest 750H or 700H, it will be shipped to you in 2 different boxes. One box will contain the bowl while the other one will have the bidet seat.
The bidet seat does not therefore come preinstalled, which is good since it reduces the likelihood of breakage. Both the bowl and the bidet seat/washlet are nicely wrapped to as much as possible reduce the chances of breakage.
I however advise you to inspect both boxes as soon as you receive your order to make sure that everything is in place. It also gives you the chance to ask for a replacement if any piece is broken.
Toto Neorest 750H and 700H Installation
Both Toto Neorest 750H and 700H are a little harder to install than regular toilets. You will first need to install the bowl and then the bidet seat later.
If you do not already have a power outlet near where you want to install the toilet, you will need take care of that first. It is not pretty to have a power cord running 3 feet away from the toilet. Have it as close to the toilet as possible to make the bathroom neat and also avoid tripping hazards.
Toto Neorest does not install directly on the toilet flange like other toilets. It comes with an adapter which you install on the flange then install the toilet on the adapter.
You will receive a very detailed Toto Neorest 750H user manual in 3 different languages. Apart from showing you how to install the toilet, it also clearly explains all the features available and how to use or set them up.
Although you can install the Toto Neorest 750H and 700H on your own, I would really implore you to hire a certified plumber to do the installation. This being such an expensive toilet you don’t want to mess up with anything since the warranty will not cover it.
