TECEone Roadshow Key

TECEone on tour - convincing performance in the comparison test

TECE asked the HVAC professionals about shower toilets.
The participants were surveyed via questionnaires on everything concerning shower toilets. Various assessment criteria were used for this.

Among other things, the questions include experience with shower toilets as well as an estimation of future market development.

But the survey also went into detail about the various functions and features offered by a shower toilet. Naturally, TECEone was tested too and an intensive survey was conducted.

How important are the following functions to you when it comes to shower toilets?

1,6
Seat heating
1,6
Automatic lid
3,6
Air filter
1,7
Dryer
2,2
Remote control
Rating: 0 = unimportant, 5 = important.

The automatic lid, dryer and seat heating are regarded by the participants as clearly unimportant and are instead suspected of being potential candidates for faults.

The possibility of a remote control is judged to be slightly better. However, this often also requires a large amount of explanation and accustomisation. Incorrect use can lead to increased service calls, especially in the first few weeks.

The only more important feature seems to be odour extraction. In addition to the usual extracted air solutions, some manufacturers also offer integrated circulating air filter systems such as those installed in the TECElux.

It depends on the cleaning performance and I consider the typical special functions unimportant. We do not sell seat heating as a matter of principle. You feel as though someone has just used the toilet immediately before you.

Reliability and maintenance
Rating: 0 = unimportant, 5 = important.

In addition to the more or less useful functions, the SHK professionals also consider the assembly and initial operation and the easy to understand operation for the user to be in particular need of improvement.

Too expensive, too much technology, too complicated

TECEone takes a different approach with the simplest technology and water directly from the tap.

This idea has been very well received. When asked about the necessity of a hot water connection, only 9% see this as an “occasional challenge”. Nobody sees this as a real problem.

91 %
For 91% of the participants, the water connection is not a real problem.
Feedback on TECEone

Due to the simple built-in technology and the clever solutions of the concealed mounting and WC seat assembly, the respondents see the installation and initial operation as consistently very positive.

The easy to understand operation and function for the end user, in particular, is seen by the participants as an outstanding product feature with regard to consultation and, of course, use.

The very positive evaluation of the potential susceptibility to faults and the anticipated low maintenance costs was only to be expected.

TECEone has convinced me. The price threshold is lower than for other shower toilets. The many technical features of competing products are overwhelming. TECEone is pleasantly uncomplicated.
TECEone also looks like a normal toilet. And the mounting system is clever. There should also be something like this for other toilets.

TECEone is definitely a very interesting product due to the absence of technology! Dispensing with too much technology also offers the major advantage of lower maintenance requirements.
