Not only is the Coway BA-13 one of the most technologically advanced bidet toilet seats you’ll find, it’s also one of the best looking bidet seats on the market. Operated with a wireless remote control, the Coway BA-13 offers a clean and modern look which is sure to upgrade any bathroom. It’s also packed with all the latest features, so you can be sure you’re getting a bidet that will last for years to come.
Some of the advanced features included with the Coway BA-13 include twin stainless steel wash nozzles (wash nozzles on most other bidet seats come in plastic). The twin nozzle system has one nozzle that’s dedicated for posterior wash, and another nozzle that’s dedicated for feminine wash. The position of the wash nozzles are completely adjustable, so you can find the nozzle position that best suits your body. The Coway BA-13 also comes with adjustable spray-width controls – this allows you to choose between a narrow, more concentrated spray or a wider, softer spray. The tankless water heating system instantly heats water from your existing cold water supply, allowing for a continuous warm water stream.
The Coway BA-13 even has a nozzle sterilization feature, which uses a silver oxide nano particle system to effectively sterilize the wash nozzles. Coway is the first to manufacture stainless steel wash nozzles, adjustable spray-width controls, and a nozzle sterilization feature. These are just a few examples of the industry-leading features that come with this premium bidet toilet seat.
Other features include adjustable water temperature and adjustable water pressure. There is also a “Move” feature on the Coway BA-13 which moves the nozzles back and forth beneath you, widening the cleaning area. A built in air dry helps with residual moisture after washing. A heated toilet seat, automatic air deodorizer, slow-closing seat/lid, and power saving mode rounds out the rest of the main features you’ll find in the Coway BA-13.
Coway BA-13 Bidet Features:
Three Years Manufacturer's Limited Warranty:
We’ve reviewed and tested a lot of products here at bidetsPLUS, but none have impressed us more than the Coway BA13 bidet seat. Although Coway is a newcomer to the North American market, they are very well-known in Asia (where bidet toilet seats were first invented). And now, they’ve put all those years of experience to build this premium-class bidet seat for the Americas – the BA13 from Coway.
If you would like to read our full Coway BA13 Review, please visit our Coway BA-13 Review page. Otherwise, we'll summarize some of the key points for you here.
Operated with a wireless remote control (mounting bracket included so you can mount it on the wall), the Coway BA13 bidet seat is powered by two stainless steel nozzles. That’s right, stainless steel wash nozzles. One of the nozzles is dedicated for feminine wash, and the other nozzle is dedicated for posterior wash. Spray-width is adjustable on the Coway BA13 bidet seat so choose between a wider, softer spray or a more narrow, concentrated spray. After washing, press the “Sterilize” button on the remote control to sanitize the nozzles with a special Silver Oxide Nano particle treatment, which has powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
The Coway BA13 bidet seat is the first to introduce stainless steel nozzles, adjustable spray-width, and nozzle sterilization features. You will only find these features on the Coway BA13 bidet seat (or BA13s that have been private-labeled under another brand).
On top of all these wash features already included in the Coway BA13 bidet seat, you can further customize your wash experience. Nozzle position is adjustable to best suit your body. Water pressure can be adjusted as well. The Coway BA13 bidet seat also has a tankless water heating system, which can provide a nearly endless stream of warm water. Adjust the water temperature until it feels just right. There’s also a “Move” function which oscillates the wash nozzle back and forth, widening the cleaning area. With all of the different wash functions available on the Coway BA13 bidet seat, you can find the combination of settings that’s perfect for you.
Non-wash features include a warm air dryer with three different settings, which helps with residual moisture after washing. The Coway BA13 bidet seat also has a built-in air deodorizer which helps freshen up your bathroom. You’ll find the temperature-controlled heated seat to be a luxury in the mornings, or during the cold winter months. The seat and lid close softly too (no more slamming toilet seats).
What we’ve noticed with most other bidet seats, is that the more features you pack into it, the bulkier the bidet gets. But you don’t get that with the Coway BA 13 bidet seat. It retains a sleek design, and looks very modern and contemporary. It’s a good looking seat.
And compared to other bidet seats which don’t recommend you sitting on its closed lid, you’re free to sit down on the closed lid of the Coway BA 13 bidet seat. It’s a sturdy lid, which will take your weight without damage. A convenient power save feature rounds out the rest of its main functions.
The Coway BA 13 bidet seat is truly in a class of its own. With all these features, the only thing the BA 13 has missing is a cup holder! (We’ll work on that for the next version). In the meantime, we hope you’ve learned more about the Coway BA 13 bidet seat here at bidetsPLUS!

We purchased our first Coway BA13 bidet seat from bidetPLUS (see review by David S. from July 4, 2012). After using it for two years and having to compete with the kids to use it, we just bought two more! Great product, easy to install, and we've had no problems.

Upon returning from a vacation in Japan, this was literally the first thing my wife and I purchased after we unpacked our bags. The seat took less than 15 minutes to install. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

I just wanted to let you know that I am quite happy with the Coway bidet seat. It arrived in excellent condition, was easy to install and performs beautifully.

Ordered on monday, received on wednesday, installed yesterday (thursday) and so far so good. Your service and shipping is excellent. Great recommendation. A lot better than my 10 year old Toto washlet.

I love my newly installed Coway bidet seat! It does a lovely job and it's a lot better than other bidet washlet seats I have tried when traveling through Japan. If you like heated comfort on cold mornings and evenings, this is the seat for you. I particularly look forward to how long the stainless steel washlet parts last as compared to other models which have the plastic parts.

Works very well. Will help to have larger printed instruction and larger drawings for senior citizens. We will buy another one.

I have always wanted a bidet and couldn't be happier with this seat! It takes care of all my needs. I feel like a queen.

The Coway BA13 is a great bidet. It's very convenient to use with the remote control and I much prefer it to my old bidet which had the controls attached to the side. It looks a lot nicer and is less bulky than my old one too. I'm actually surprised they were able to pack everything it does into something not much bigger than a regular toilet seat but that's technology for you. The heated toilet seat is becoming very useful as the weather has gotten colder which is an added bonus. After using a bidet for over 10 years, there's no way I'm not having one again and the Coway BA13 has been a great choice for me so far and I'm very happy with it.

We lived in SE Asia for 10 years and were introduced to toilet seat bidets immediately. Once we got used to the idea, we were hooked and were determined to get them for our home in the US after we returned. We spent several weeks researching bidets on-line, and even went to the annual national Kitchen & Bath Show in Chicago to see them in action and make our decision. Because these are still rather new in the US, the salesmen were not very knowledgeable. I contacted Bidets Plus by phone and was pleased to discover that they really know their products, and could offer honest comparisons on quality and price. We selected the Coway BA13 and it arrived two days later. Installation was straightforward, and we have been using it for one year. The remote is intuitive and easy to use.
We are on a septic system, and we are now using much less TP, thereby reducing the the frequency of pumping out the septic tank. We have purchased only a few rolls of toilet paper in the last year--mostly for guests who haven't gotten used to the idea of using a bidet!
Great product--get one and you'll discover that it is the best "appliance" in your house!

After doing my research, and narrowing it down between the Coway BA-13 and the Brondell Swash 1000, I called bidetsPLUS directly and talked to their Sales Rep. He said that either of the units were top of the line, and that I would be happy with either one. I cannot say enough about their knowledge of this product line. The Sales Rep was professional, friendly, and answered all my questions. He wasn’t pushy, and guided me through the entire process. So I went with the BA-13, and was not disappointed. The seat was delivered about mid-morning the very next day!
I couldn’t believe how easy the seat was to install. If you have ever changed a toilet seat and replaced a leaky hose connection for your toilet tank, you will have no problems installing this yourself. The only tool I used was a pair of channel-lock pliers, and a plastic container to catch any water when I removed the hose from the toilet tank.
The operation of the unit is fairly simple. If you can use a TV remote control, you can operate the seat. The safety sensor on the seat prevents some of the functions to operate, which is a good thing (you don’t want water accidently spraying in your face), but there is no way to initially check all the functions unless you actually sit on the seat. Maybe they could provide a plastic dome and a seat pressure override like I’ve seen in the demonstration videos for the initial check, and for troubleshooting if required. Also suggest the very first operation you perform is the “Sterilize” function to make sure that no bacteria have collected on the wands before you use it for the first time. The three buttons on the side of the seat are hard to feel, but the only one you will probably use sitting down should have some sort of way to feel it better with a tactile bump or even make it bigger than the other two.
After doing all my research, talking to bidetsPLUS, and using the seat for a few days now, I’ve concluded that the Coway BA-13 is the best seat on the market. Although a little more expensive than most, so far I’m very happy with the BA-13, and would highly recommend it.
