So, the touchless flush is a unique feature of Kohler san souci. But how this amazing technology works? Inside the san souci toilet, you will find a touchless module. Inside of this module, there is a sensor, a circuit board and a flush acutating wheel and four AA batteries. To suspend the module high above the water line inside the tank, there is a metal bracket, and a simple chain connects the wheel to flush valve.
The function of the sensor is its projects an electromagnetic field through the lid of the toilet. The field extends another 2 or 3 inches above the lid. When you place your hand over the toilet tank, the magnetic field will break. Breaking up of the magnetic field will actuate the flush. The magnetic field is kept intentionally tight to prevent ghost flushing. The 4 AA batteries are expected to last 6 to 12 months. But it depends on use.

Comfort height feature of Kohler san souci offers chair-height seating that makes sitting down and standing up easier for most adults. Concealed trapway and clean caps of san souci toilet facilitate easier cleaning.
