American Standard “ActiClean” Self-Cleaning Toilet

The American Standard ActiClean toilet is a self cleaning toilet with a safe but effective cleaning solution that cleans and removes stains with a simple press of a button.

Part of the VorMax Collection, the ActiClean toilet, features two cleaning cycles; Deep Clean and Quick Clean, and comes with a 9 week supply of cleaning solution

How does the ActiClean System work?

A clean cycle is selected by pressing the corresponding button.

Then the cleaner powerfully enters the bowl, scrubbing the walls of the toilet bowl. This cleaning solution saturates in the bowl for preset amount of time, depending on the cycle selected.

Last, the system will automatically switch to the rinse cycle, siphoning the cleaning agent and rinsing the bowl. The result is a sparkling clean bowl.

The SECRET SAUCE of the ActiClean Toilet

The cleaning capabilities of the ActiClean toilet is achieved through the following three features:

  1. VorMax Jetted Scrub feature
  2. ActiClean cleaning solution cartridge
  3. Smooth CleanCurve Rim

VorMax Jetted Scrub

The VorMax flush flips the ratio of water and uses 70% of the 1.28 gallons of water to rinse the bowl clean and the smaller amount (30%) to start the siphon and remove the waste.

The bigger percentage of water released to the rim to rinse the bowl will offer much greater scrubbing power and a much cleaner bowl. Both toilets are consume 1.28 gallons of water, but the amount and how water is delivered to the bowl is unique with VorMax.

ActiClean Cleaning Solution

The ActiClean cleaning solution cartridge is a non-abrasive liquid that was formulated to reduce potential for hard-water stains with regular use. It has a blue color, and pleasant scent.

The solution lasts up to 9 weeks if 1 Quick Clean and 1 Deep Clean cycle is activated each week and is listed as safe for septic systems. A refill cost is just under $10.00.

Smooth CleanCurve Rim

The CleanCurve Rim achieves better cleaning, especially under the rim. This feature allows water to reach the top of the bowl.
