TOTO Neorest LS vs RS: Neorest Comparison

TOTO had some big news back in June of 2023 when it was announced that many of its most popular Washlet bidet seats and Neorest bidet toilets were being discontinued and replaced with upgraded models.  

One of the most popular products being discontinued is the TOTO Neorest 700H. In its place will be the brand new TOTO Neorest LS

Another very popular model being discontinued is the TOTO Neorest RH. Replacing this bidet toilet is the brand new TOTO Neorest RS.

So what are the main differences between these two new models from TOTO? 

We'll answer that question and more with our guide to the differences between the TOTO Neorest LS vs RS. 

TOTO Neorest RS vs LS - Differences

toto neorest rs vs ls

Those looking to buy the soon-to-be discontinued models often wondered about the differences between the TOTO Neorest 700H and Neorest RH. Because of this, we knew we needed to get the answers out on these new models. 

The four main areas of differences between the Neorest RS vs LS are:

  1. Design
  2. Features
  3. Remote control style
  4. Price

Let’s go into more detail on each one. 

Neorest LS Seat Area

Seat area is a major difference between the Neorest RS and LS.

Because these two smart TOTO toilets both share most of the same cleaning features, the main difference really comes down to which one is more comfortable to sit on. 

Here is a diagram of the seat area on the Neorest RS:

Here is a diagram of the seat area on the Neorest LS:

You'll notice that the seat on the Neorest LS is both 1" wider and 1" longer than the Neorest RS. 
  • Neorest RS seat dimensions - 27.19" X 15.19"
  • Neorest LS seat dimensions - 28.56" X 16.19"

If you require more seating area or are willing to pay more for the most comfortable seating experience, the TOTO LS would be the way to go.   

EWATER+

TOTO employs what it calls EWATER+ (which is electrolyzed water) as a powerful yet 100% natural cleaning agent. Electrolyzed water has a lower ph and is able to work without the use of harsh chemicals.

As you approach the toilet, a motion sensor is triggered and the EWATER starts doing its job automatically.

On the Neorest RS, EWATER is used to clean the bidet wand and toilet bowl before and after each use.

On the Neorest LS, EWATER cleans not only the wand and bowl, but also mists underneath the seat to keep that clean as well. 

The TOTO RS lacks this additional under the seat EWATER rinse. 

Color Trim Options

The TOTO Neorest LS comes equipped with some brand new color options that its predecessor, the Neorest 700H, did not.

Now you have three trim color options: 

  • Silver
  • Black
  • Nickel

    Depending on which color you choose, there are different price options as well. Click here for the latest TOTO Neorest price for the LS

    The Neorest RS only comes with one standard “cotton” color or finish. Those already familiar with the TOTO Neorest RH should know what to expect as this has not changed at all.

    Remote Control 

    Another difference we’ve found between the TOTO Neorest RS vs LS is the look and design of the remote control. The Neorest RS remote control is “block style” and made from high quality plastic.

    The Neorest LS remote control is “stick style” and stainless steel.

    Both new Neorest remote controls offer four user presets, an update from the two previously offered on the models these new ones are replacing.   

    Seated Height

    Where these new Neorest models also differ is in the overall seated height. 

    • Neorest LS floor to seat height is 17.312”
    • Neorest RS floor to seat height is 17.687”

    Granted we’re talking about fractions of an inch here, but if you or a loved one have a disability or mobility issue of any kind, this can make a difference. For more info about bidets and those with disabilities, you can read our article about that here

    Product Weight and Other Dimensions

    If you’re remodeling your home or looking to replace a major appliance like a toilet, it’s important to have all the right product specifications in hand. With some bathrooms an inch or two here and there can make all the difference. 

    The dimensions for the Neorest LS are displayed below:

    Now you can compare that to the Neorest RS:

    toto neorest rs product dimensions

    One difference between the Neorest RS vs LS is product weight. The LS is slightly heavier than the RS.  

    • The Neorest LS is 112 lbs
    • The Neorest RS is 95 lbs. 

    Another area of difference is product width. We found the Neorest LS to be one inch wider than the Neorest RS.

    • The Neorest LS is 16.19” wide
    • The Neorest RS is 15.19” wide

    The height from the floor to when the lid is raised or fully open is different when comparing the Neorest LS vs RS as well. If you’re trying to squeeze in a toilet in a smaller area or have a shelf above your current toilet, this might be important to note. 

    • The Neorest LS floor to raised lid height is 44.9”
    • The Neorest RS floor to raised lid height is 41” 

    For more info about the dimensions of the TOTO Neorest LS, here's the product specification sheet.

    We're sure you'll also want the TOTO Neorest RS product specification sheet as well. 

    Overall Design

    The general look and appearance of the Neorest LS vs RS is different as well. The Neorest RS has more rounded, soft curves where the Neorest LS is more angular and perhaps modern looking. 

    TOTO Neorest Price

    This is another large difference between the Neorest RS vs LS. Because of all of the reasons mentioned above, there will be a difference in price.

    The Neorest LS is the more expensive of the two, but it’s not wildly different like in the case of the TOTO Neorest 700H and the Neorest NX1

    Other than those differences, these two Neorest bidet toilets are very similar. They both share all of the same cleaning features.

    Some of these main cleaning and design features the Neorest LS and Neorest RS share:

    • Adjustable water temperature and pressure
    • Unlimited, instant warm water wash
    • Automatic open/close lid
    • Seamless Seat
    • Heated seat
    • Deodorizer
    • Warm air dryer 
    • Remote control with 4 user presets
    • Energy saving systems
    • ADA compliant
    • Auto-flush mode
    • TORNADO flush
    • CEFIONTECT glaze
    • PREMIST
    • EWATER

    Other TOTO Products Being Discontinued

    When TOTO made it’s announcement in June about the Neorest 700H and Neorest RH being discontinued, the changes weren’t limited to just those models. 

    Also being discontinued is the TOTO Neorest AH. This popular model is being replaced by the TOTO Neorest AS

    Installation

    The basic installation for these two new products will be the same, although you should take into account some of the differences in product dimensions mentioned earlier.
