Bidet Toilet Seat Feature Considerations

All of the bidet toilet seats above will achieve the basic function of why you're getting a bidet in the first place, which is to be able to wash yourself with water.  But there are details to consider as well.  Such as the warranty, the control type (wireless remote control or attached control panel), and the unit's water volume.  Nozzle construction and being able to sit on the closed lid are other considerations.  We'll highlight some of the more important things you should be thinking about.  The information we present is based on our experiences talking to other people just like you, who are trying to decide which bidet seat to get.  These are the features we get asked about the most:

Feature Description
Warranty Warranties range from 1 to 3 years.  While some bidet toilet seats have a 100% warranty throughout the warranty period, others have declining coverage in the outer years, e.g., 75% coverage in Year 2 and 50% coverage in Year 3.  Some seats offer extended warranty plans.  You can view the warranty details on each product page for specifics.
Control Type You operate your bidet through a wireless remote control or through a control panel which is attached to the side of the seat.  Remote controlled bidets are easier to use.  With a control panel, some of the buttons are way in the back - so you have to twist around and look behind you to access some of the buttons.  But with a remote control, you simply mount it on the wall.  You can even remove the remote control from the wall and hold it in your hand.
Water Volume Water volume is a measurement of how much water the bidet seat can output, measured in liters per minute.  To put it simply - more water volume is better.  More water translates to a more efficient wash.  You could imagine taking a shower with lower water volume vs higher water volume.  You will be able to shower faster and more efficiently if you had higher water volume.  This concept applies to bidet seats too.
Water Heating System There are two types of water heaters in bidet seats, (1) reservoir tank heaters and (2) tankless heaters.  Reservoir tank heaters have a built-in warm water reservoir which keeps warm water ready at all times.  Can output ~40 seconds of warm water, then water will start to cool.  Since most people wash in ~20 seconds, 40 seconds is plenty.  Tankless heaters provide never-ending warm water, but the first second or two may be a little cold (no reservoir).  But they are more energy efficient, and because they are tankless - these bidets are typically less bulky.
Air Deodorizer A common misconception is that a bidet toilet seat's air deodorizer masks the order with another scent, like vanilla or cherry.  But the truth is bidet seat air deodorizers work with an active carbon filter which ABSORBS unwanted bathroom odor, instead of covering it up.  There is an intake fan which takes the air from the toilet bowl, and passes it thru the active carbon filter.
Stainless Steel Nozzles The spray nozzle for bidet toilet seats will either be (1) a stainless steel nozzle or (2) a plastic nozzle.  Stainless steel nozzles are going to be more sanitary.  If you look at plastic under a microscope, you'll see that plastic is a porous material which can catch microscopic debris.  Stainless steel however is a solid, smooth service which is easier for the bidet to clean during its self-rinsing action.
A Lid You Can Sit On Typically, the lid which covers the seat of your bidet is not designed to be weight-bearing.  The lid is intended to act more like a cover.  If you do sit on the lid, you'll feel it "give" and you'll want to stand up.  However, there are instances when it's convenient to sit on a closed toilet.  For example - if you have a smaller bathroom/powder room, and need somewhere to sit.  Brondell is the only manufacturer who makes bidets where you can sit on the lid.
Automatic Open/Close Lid Bidet seats which offer an automatic open/close lid, are built with a motion sensor which detects when you're approaching.  As you walk towards the toilet, the lid will open automatically for you.  Men - who may want to open the seat as well, can do so by tapping a button on top of the remote control.  The lid and the seat automatically close as you walk away.  The only bidets which have this feature are the Novita BH 90/93 and TOTO S550e.
User Presets The best analogy is to compare to luxury cars, where you can program driver presets.  In the case of a car - you would program the driver's seat position, the position of the mirrors and steering wheel.  With a bidet, however - you would program the spray position, water temperature and pressure for up to two people in your household.
Includes 30 Day Trial Due to the personal hygienic nature of a bidet toilet seat, once the unit has been installed it is not returnable.  However - we do have a few seats, which have such a strong track record where we are pleased to offer a 30 day trial.  This means you can install it, use it, and if you don't like it you can return it for a full refund.  Here are the program details on our 30 day trial offer.

 

Popular Head-to-Head Comparisons

Here are some head-to-head comparisons of our most popular bidet toilet seats.  We speak to a lot of customers who say, "I've narrowed it down to bidet A and bidet B, and need your help deciding which one to choose."  We've included links below, for the comparisons we get asked most often about on the phone.  These dedicated comparisons provide a high level summary, some detailed comparisons, reasons why you would choose one over the other, differences in specs, as well as some quick hits on the bidet's main features and warranty.  Some popular head-to-head comparisons:

 

 

Non-Electric Bidets

Our non-electric models are a great choice if you prefer a no-frills option, or if you don't have an electrical outlet near the toilet.  With the absence of electricity - these models are typically cold water only, and powered by your home's water pressure alone.  Some models do have a hot water option however, which use an extended hose line which connects to your hot water outlet beneath your sink.  These hot water models are specified in the chart below under the feature, "Hot Water Mixing."  Below is our second comparison chart which lists our non-electronic models:

Comparison of All Bidet Models

Finally, we have one more chart that lists all our bidets, including a brief write-up on each model.  Here we highlight the key differences in each model, and also identify areas for improvement.  We also segment the seats according to price, dividing the bidets into three price tiers.  This provides a different "cross-section," or a different way of looking at all the bidets conveniently in one chart.  This chart provides additional insight, but in a more text-based format.
 
And with that, here is our third and final comparison chart of all our bidets below:
Price Tier I:  Bidet Seats $599 and above
Model Controls Points of Difference Areas for Improvement Summary
Bio Bidet BB 2000 Remote Control  All new design is 25% thinner than previous generation BB 1000.  Upgraded water heating system, stainless steel nozzles, wider spray  Not much.  Maybe a cup-holder?  Superior washing performance.  Outstanding warranty provides full 100% coverage for 3 Years 
Bio Bidet BB 1700 Attached Panel The best seat you can find, for those who prefer the controls attached to the seat Okay, maybe an automatic open/close seat and lid next time Same as BB 2000 but with the control panel attached
Bio Bidet A8 Serenity Remote Control Double-sided remote looks less cluttered on the front.  Two user-presets.  Dual-speed warm air dry.  Electric cord is centered in the rear, so you can swing the cord left or right Would like to see it available in beige color Uni-body construction blends well with the rest of your toilet.  High degree of user control and customization in this seat
Blooming NB-R1063 Wireless Remote Fits virtually any toilet, including hard-to-fit one piece toilets like the Kohler San Raphael and Kohler Rialto No air deodorizer Fully featured bidet with strongest air dry of the units we tested.  Night light well designed.  Complete 100% warranty for 3 full years
Brondell Swash 1400 Wireless Remote Brondell's new 3rd generation seat offers a hidden pocket design for water/power connections.  Night light, longer feminine nozzle, user presets The only thing missing is the auto open/close seat and lid. New flagship model from Brondell is a winner.  Several improvements over the Swash 1000 and still retains a sleek look
Brondell Swash 1000 Wireless Remote Lots of technology packed into a great looking bidet seat Turbo wash would have been a good addition Great all-around model even includes a lid you can sit on.  Longer history on this model shows good durability
Kohler Novita BH90/93 Wireless Remote Attractive design with brushed stainless steel inlay across the back.  Backlit LCD display on remote control.  Best night light available.  Auto open/close lid Remote control is best used from the wall; too big to hold in one hand Top of the line seat from Kohler Novita comes loaded with features
TOTO S550e Wireless Remote Thin design measures 5" high at its tallest point.  New eWater Technology uses electrolyzed water to mist the toilet bowl.  Auto open/close lid One year warranty is short compared to other manufacturers The gold standard in bidet seats.  Now also comes in your choice of lid styles - contemporary and classic
TOTO S500e Wireless Remote Identical to the S550e, except S500e doesn't have night light or automatic open/close lid No stainless steel nozzles. The first company to mass produce bidet toilet seats. They've had decades to fine tune their flagship product
TOTO K300 Wireless Remote Includes toilet bowl misting feature, but uses regular water (not electrolyzed water like the S550e/S500e). LCD display on the back of the remote would make adjustments a bit easier Doesn't have the same high-end features like the S550e/S500, but this new mid-range unit from TOTO still has a lot to offer
Price Tier II:  Bidet Seats $499 and below
Model Controls Points of Difference Areas for Improvement Summary
Bio Bidet BB 1000 Wireless Remote Air dry works great, has optional turbo wash feature A night light would have been nice Great track record, great warranty
Bio Bidet BB 800 Attached
Panel
Air dry works really well, optional turbo wash If BB 1000 has an air deodorizer, this should too Same as Bio Bidet BB 1000, but without deodorizer and remote
Bio Bidet BB 600 Attached
Panel
Bio Bidet brand and extra warranty options Turbo wash would have been a good addition One of the very first bidet seats.  An oldie but goodie.

Bio Bidet A7 Aura

Highest water volume in the sub-$400 category.  Even includes two user presets No air deodorizer Great value and washing performance from Bio Bidet

Brondell DS725

Wireless Remote Outstanding value includes some high-end features including wireless remote, night light, and air deodorizer Brondell 1400 and 1000 series models have adjustable spray-width You won't find a more fully featured unit at this price.

Kohler Novita BN330

Attached Panel A more compact model makes it one of the most compatible, with all different kinds of toilets Larger persons may not like the compact design Entry-level electric model from Kohler Novita

TOTO C200

Wireless Remote TOTO has been manufacturing bidet seats for decades, so you know this unit is well built. Quite bulky when compared to other models Entry-level washlet from TOTO
Price Tier III:  Non-Electric Bidets
Model Water Temp Points of Difference Areas for Improvement Summary
Bio Bidet BB i3000 Adjustable Comes with a seat too, so replaces your entire toilet seat.  You also get warm water Not the best-looking unit, but water pressure is great and works well Good option for those who want a warm-water bidet seat, but don't have electrcity near the toilet
Bio Bidet A5 Stream Cold The lowest-price bidet seat available, replaces your entire toilet seat.  Slim design is just 2.5 inches tall For $99 what more can you ask for? Sleek design looks like a regular toilet seat but has the bidet functionality too
Bio Bidet BB 270 Duo Adjustable Nozzles retract behind a splash guard when not in use, which keeps nozzles cleaner and more sanitary Stainless steel nozzles would be a good upgrade for future models High end, non-electric bidet attachment
Bio Bidet BB Elite 3 Cold Dual nozzle design provides separate nozzles for posterior/feminine wash Warm water would be nice, but that's what the BB 270 Duo is for Same as the BB 270 Duo, but with no warm water option
Bio Bidet BB 70 Cold Super-easy to use.  A single dial starts the wash and controls water pressure too Feminine wash would be a nice add, but that's what the BB Elite 3 is for Same as the BB Elite 3, but with a single nozzle - which means no feminine wash
Brondell EcoSeat 100 Cold Comes with a seat too, so replaces your entire toilet seat.  Easy-to-use dial control For this price, should have warm water option. Good non-electric bidet seat, as long as you don't mind cold water only.
Brondell FreshSpa Dual Adjustable Nozzle angle can be adjusted higher, which changes the angle of the water spray Spray nozzle remains exposed so can collect debris Instead of a splash guard which protects the nozzle from debris, Brondell opted for a nozzle which can be angled more forward.  It's a trade-off
Brondell FreshSpa Easy Cold Single dial operation is easy to use No feminine nozzle/wash Same as the FreshSpa Dual, but with no warm water option 
Brondell CleanSpa Hand Held Cold Hand-held unit which clips onto the side of the toilet's water tank. You hold it with your hand to use, so not as easy as turning a dial.   Very simple design - it's a mini hand-held shower head
GoBidet GB 2003C Cold While other non-electric models are made of plastic, this one is made of chrome.  Great water coverage since you can position the spray more backward or more forward Not much.  One of the best non-electric units available Hiqh quality chrome construction is built to last

Basic Comparisons to Consider in a New Bidet

If you are considering getting a new bidet toilet seat, then you are likely in the midst of sifting through a lot of information about features and functions that may not be immediately clear to you if you are new to these machines.  It can feel a bit like shopping for a new car with all of the different models out there to consider, so we wanted to point out a few of the more practical high-level options for you to consider when choosing a bidet.  Let’s take a look at some of the variations of features you might come across and provide a basic and practical guide for comparing them from the new user’s perspective.

The first point of comparison is a pretty easy one for most people to choose between, and that is electric versus non-electric bidets.  A non-electric attachment is generally a workable solution if you need a basic water cleanse option for a toilet that is not accessible at all to an electrical outlet.  Electric seats on the other hand are by far the most common choice for anyone installing a unit in a bathroom where there already is an outlet or one can be installed by an electrician.  So if you are looking at the electric options like the majority of people are, know right off that yes, you will need to plug the unit into an electrical outlet.  Since most people want electric bidets, let’s now look at a few of the major differences to consider.

Among electric units, one big difference between seats to be aware of is the water heating system.  Some use a reservoir tank which keeps water heated inside the unit and provides a finite volume of warm water.  The newer tankless heating models use a heating coil that provides continuous on-demand heated water for as long as the user wants.  The tankless models, besides providing a longer warm water wash, also are more energy efficient.  For the best of both worlds, there are a couple of models with hybrid water heating which incorporates the instant heating system for continuous warm water plus a small reserve so that the water is warm right away without any initial cold splash.  

Another big difference among the electric seats is whether they have an attached control panel or a remote control.  The attached control panel seats are operated by pressing buttons on a panel that is attached to the rear right side of the unit as you are seated (or left-hand side as you face the toilet).  The remote control models use something similar to a TV remote, and they come with a wall mounting kit.  The remote can be mounted wherever is convenient and operated from the wall mounting kit, or you can remove it and hold it in your hand.  Most people prefer the convenience of the remote control as the attached control panel can sometimes be a bit harder to see the buttons compared to the remote.  

One feature that sometimes gets overlooked is the warranty.  Like any other electronic product, generous warranty terms can give the customer peace of mind knowing that if they have any issues, someone will be there to help.  A manufacturer that stands by their product with a strong warranty can often be a good indicator of a product’s quality.  Some manufacturers, specifically Bio Bidet and Brondell, offer extended warranty options at an additional cost for even better warranty coverage terms.

Besides these basic high-level features, there are many others to consider when choosing a bidet.  Does it use plastic wash nozzles or stainless steel nozzles?  Is there a warm air dryer or night light included?  How about an oscillating wash feature or built in air deodorizer?  You can see in the charts above there are many factors to know about, but we hope this page offers the guidance you’ll need to determine which features matter most to you.  In addition to our comparison chart information above, you can also watch video reviews on the product pages, and of course you can always contact us here at bidetsPLUS for help deciding which bidet is the best fit for you!
 
 

Washing or Wiping?  Using a Bidet vs. Using Toilet Paper

Understanding why washing with a bidet is better than wiping with toilet paper is very simple: water is a far more effective cleaning agent than dry paper.  It sounds obvious, but sometimes old habits can be hard to change, even when common sense tells us we should.  It would be pretty silly to jump in the shower without turning on the water and then “cleaning” yourself with some dry paper instead of simply turning on the water.  Or how about washing your dishes with dry paper? You would end up smearing around leftover food waste on your plates and pans.  Obviously that would be ridiculous and kind of gross when you think about it.  So why is it that so many people still use abrasive dry paper to “clean” their body’s most sensitive area?

Part of why many Americans still only use toilet paper is cultural.  In countries throughout the world, bidet toilet seats are very common and even expected in the restroom.  But in the United States, most of us have grown up using paper to clean ourselves, and it has become conditioned into our behavior that toilet paper is the one and only method of cleaning up after using the bathroom.  That’s just what we do.  If we did this in other areas where technology has given us better options, we’d still be waiting several minutes for our computers to dial up to connect to the internet!  But then again, most people here in the US don’t even know what a bidet toilet seat is, let alone have ever used one.

A lot of bidet owners still use toilet paper, just in a different way.  The paper is generally used to dry after washing, much like drying off with a towel after a bath or shower.  Some electric seats do come with built in warm air dryers to help dry, but a lot of folks will dab moisture with toilet paper to speed up the drying process.  Using it this way, you can drastically cut down on your total consumption of toilet paper since it doesn’t take much to pat yourself dry, especially if an air dryer is used in conjunction with the paper.  And keeping some toilet paper around can also alleviate the worries of any guests who aren’t quite ready make the switch to the cleaning powers of a bidet toilet seat!

Of course, there are many reasons why you should make the switch.  As mentioned, a bidet seat can help you substantially cut back on toilet paper use, which can save a good deal of money over time.  More immediately, the soothing spray of water from the bidet seat is far better at cleaning you than toilet paper.  Most everyone has had the unpleasant experience of toilet paper feeling more abrasive than cleansing.  This is such a common experience that toilet paper brands admit it through their marketing by promoting their TP as softer and less abrasive than their competitors.  People with medical concerns or extra sensitivity can really dread using the bathroom because of this discomfort.  And with most toilet paper containing bleach and perfumes, those chemicals can act as an additional irritant.  It is actually not uncommon for us to hear from customers who were recommended to use a bidet by a doctor to help with issues that wiping only make worse.  

As you can see, there are many reasons why bidet toilet seats are a better and smarter option compared with just using toilet paper.  Reducing paper waste, better comfort, improved hygiene and overall superior cleaning are some of the big reasons why a lot of people are making the change to the bidet toilet seat.  And there are plenty of features beyond the basics that make these seats so popular, including warm air dryers, built-in air deodorizers and heated seat with adjustable temperature settings (a must-have in the cold winter months!).  You can find much more information in our comparison charts above as well as on our product pages where you can find videos and reviews.  We have all your bidet toilet seat questions covered here at bidetsPLUS!
