Title: TOILET WITH ENHANCED CLEANING FEATURES
Abstract:
A toilet having enhanced cleaning features includes a drain surface positioned behind a rear edge of a toilet bowl opening, which is sloped to direct the flow of liquid waste captured therein back into the toilet bowl. The toilet may also include a seat and lid having arms that are pivotably attached to the toilet, which are spaced so that they are laterally positioned to the outside of at least a portion of a deck surface when the seat and lid are resting thereupon. Additionally, the toilet seat and lid may pivot about an axis that is positioned behind the bowl opening and a proximate to a flushwater inlet of the toilet. Thus, such features of the toilet allow the seat and lid to be positioned so that the deck surface, as well as the drain surface, can be readily accessed and cleaned.
