VorMax Plus toilet cleans itself

Powerful flushing platform from American Standard combines Lysol cleaner to freshen toilet bowl from top to bottom with every flush

Trusted household brands American Standard and Lysol have joined forces to introduce the VorMax Plus, a new self-cleaning toilet that cleans and freshens the toilet bowl with Lysol cleaner during every flush – no extra steps needed.

With the VorMax Plus toilet, American Standard has taken cleaning performance to the next level with the innovative VorMax Plus Fresh Infuser, which is hidden in an easy-to-access compartment behind the seat. The result: a cleaner bowl that helps prevent staining and buildup without any extra effort by the user or an unsightly add-on device in the bowl.

The award-winning VorMax flushing platform has been independently verified to clean the bowl two times better than conventional toilets. Combined with Lysol cleaner – featuring an Ocean Fresh scent – the VorMax Plus toilet delivers effortless cleaning, reducing the elbow grease needed for one of the least favourite household chores.

To further simplify cleaning and maintenance, this toilet’s CleanCurve Rim omits the rim cavity and holes inside the bowl where dirt and buildup can get trapped and hide. In addition, VorMax Plus toilets feature brand-exclusive EverClean, the innovative permanent finish that helps toilets stay cleaner, longer.

The VorMax Plus high efficiency toilet achieves the highest bulk removal score on the Maximum Performance (MaP) test, successfully flushing 1,000 grams (2.2 pounds) of waste with only 1.28 gallons of water per flush. It has earned WaterSense certification for providing high performance while using 20 per cent less water than traditional 1.6 gpf toilets.

VorMax Plus toilets provide ADA-compliant, personalized comfort with a Right Height (16½ inch) elongated bowl configuration. The slow close seat prevents slamming and features a quick release button that permits easy removal of the entire seat for thorough cleaning.

Each VorMax Plus FreshInfuser lasts up to 30 days (360 flushes); two packs are included with the purchase of the toilet, providing up to 60 days of fresh and clean.

The Canadian list price for the VorMax Plus toilet is $398. They are available exclusively in Canada at The Home Depot.

Return of the Black Bathroom

Latest News

Return of the Black Bathroom

Tis the season to begin planning next year’s home renovation projects. If a dream bathroom renovation is on your wish list, you’re probably pouring over photos of gorgeous spaces. That means there’s a good chance you’ve noticed that black bathrooms are quietly making a return.

From walls to accents, faucets, fixtures, and sometime all of the above, black is back. Here is a look at some of the ways that you can incorporate the black bathroom trend into your next renovation.

The Ultimate Attention-Getting Toilet


Nothing makes a statement about your commitment to the black bathroom trend like adding a black commode. However, don’t add just any black toilet, when you can conserve water and enjoy a style upgrade at the same time.

Kohler’s Kathryn Comfort Height one-piece compact elongated 1.28 gpf toilet with AquaPiston® flush technology allows you to save water with every flush, while the finish in Black Black™ is a definite attention-grabber.

Show Stopping Faucet


Going black with your bathroom faucet is always a bold move, since it’s such an atypical look. However, it’s also a great medium commitment way to embrace the black bathroom trend since installing a faucet isn’t as invasive as switching out the fixtures. When you install a black faucet, it creates a striking contrast against an otherwise light-coloured bathroom.

High Profile Lighting


Whether black all over or just the hardware, black lighting fixtures make a stunning first impression in your bathroom. The look is sleek and very different.

Fabulous Flooring


Black patterned bathroom floor tiles are having a pretty big moment right now. Weère seeing them in magazines, on our favourite home design shows, and all across the internet. This is a very graphic, bold look, that shows best against a white wall, and paired with an unexpected pop of colour.

Wow Factor Walls


For the ultimate ode to this inky shade, try swathing your bathroom walls in black. You can successfully use black paint in a room without make the space feel oppressive. Try framing it with white molding, add some gorgeous statement lighting and definitely experiment with accessories.


Some of our favourite powder room looks incorporate a healthy dose of black. Here is a look at some spaces that do this trend well.


The black is very present in this space, but not overpowering.  Painting a vanity black and adding black lighting allows you to embrace this trend without a big-ticket commitment.


Think you can’t go black in a tiny space? Think again. The black hex flooring and exotic black wall paper work together to create a sensual space that feels open and spacious.


Black toilet, black hex tile, black sink …bravo. This is a truly elegant space, especially with the tile feature wall, greenery and gold accents. Very nice.
