The No-Touch Flush!

For those customers wanting the latest in technology, you might like to recommend a toilet you don't need to touch, to flush!

A retrofit kit made by KOHLER can bring a touchless flush to almost any toilet.


After it's fitted, all you have to do is hold your hand over the tank sensor to activate the flush.

No touching means less chance of picking up germs.


Features include:

• Retrofits a standard toilet.
• Flush is activated by a no-touch sensor mounted inside the tank.
• Powered by 4 AA batteries that come with the kit.
• Works with most canister and flapper toilets.
• Simple installation usually taking less than 20 minutes.


Not compatible with dual-flush, top-mount flush, pressure-assist, or ballcock valve toilets.
