TOTO Neorest AS vs AH: What's the Difference?
Earlier this year, TOTO announced a change to its luxurious line of Neorest smart bidet toilets. Several popular models, including the TOTO Neorest 700H and TOTO Neorest RH, are being discontinued and replaced with upgraded versions.
The popular TOTO Neorest AH is another one of the Neorest models being discontinued.
In its place is the brand new TOTO Neorest AS. We will carry the Neorest AH as long as supplies last, but the Neorest AS is in stock and available for purchase now.
So how does the new Neorest AS compare to the fan favorite Neorest AH?
For the answer to that question, we invite you to read our guide to the Neorest AS vs AH.
The differences: TOTO Neorest AS vs AH
So how do these two models compare? The Neorest AH and AS are similar in many ways, but there are a couple of key differences that TOTO fans should pay attention to.
- Color options
- New, sleeker design
- More customizable user settings
- New cleaning feature
Neorest AS: No more Sedona Beige
Neorest AS will only be available in TOTO’s standard color Cotton, while Neorest AH comes in Cotton and Sedona Beige. TOTO seems to be retiring sedona beige in general.
The Neorest RS is also losing this color option and will only be available in white.
Unless your heart is set on beige, this shift to one color doesn’t seem to be an issue as most bathroom fixtures will match or complement the clean white look.
But if you are a sedona beige fanatic, you’ll need to act fast before supplies run out.

Graceful and Seamless Design
You can check out the Neorest AS product dimensions below:
The shipping weight for the Neorest AS is 91lbs to the Neorest AH’s 80lbs. Not a massive change but something to note nonetheless.

One thing you should pay attention to is the fact that the Neorest AS has an updated, seamless seat.
The new seamless toilet seat is a nice marriage of art and function. This design minimizes the gap between the seat and the bowl and helps keep dirt and debris from collecting in that hard-to-clean area.
This redesign is probably one of the most significant of the changes from the Neorest AH to the Neorest AS, and looks as beautiful as you’ve come to expect from TOTO.

Neorest AS: More Customizable User Settings
Another upgrade from the Neorest AH to the Neorest AS are two additional user presets. Now with four total presets, there’s more room for specific settings like water pressure and water temperature, or for multiple family members to have their own setting.
You could even have a different setting for each of the four seasons of the year. The world is yours.
Neorest AS: Updated EWATER+ rinse
All TOTO Neorest models use EWATER+ technology to auto-clean the wand and bowl after each use. But what is EWATER+ exactly?
EWATER+ is electrolyzed water, a common technology used in food service and hospitality industries as a cleaning agent. TOTO is the only company we know of to use it for bathroom products.
EWATER+ is a great natural cleaning agent due to being:
- Slightly acidic (higher pH level)
- Environmentally friendly
- Harmless to people
What’s new here is that the Neorest AS gets an extra rinse underneath the bidet seat in addition to the wand and bowl, a nice bonus that keeps things even more hygienic.
Other than the extra seat rinse, these two models share all the same cleaning features.

Unsurprisingly, this new redesign comes with a price difference. Neorest AS is slightly more expensive than Neorest AH, but they aren’t wildly different.
