Bio Bidet BB 2000 Autumn Sale Ends: Wed 9/22
The Bio Bidet BB 2000 Bliss Series is one of the latest offerings from Bio Bidet - one of the most trusted and recognized brands in the industry. The BB 2000 offers some serious upgrades over the previous generation BB 1000, but still carries with it the excellent Bio Bidet brand and reputation.
The BB 2000 further enhances what was already a great product in the BB 1000. It's almost as though Bio Bidet looked at every feature of the BB 1000, and figured out a way to improve on it. The Bio Bidet BB 2000 features both posterior and feminine wash functions, but with a noticeably wider spray for a more thorough cleansing. They have also upgraded the wash nozzle to stainless steel for a more durable finish. Use the oscillation feature and the nozzle will automatically move back and forth beneath you, extending the cleaning area. The water pulse feature is another great option to have which pulsates the water stream and provides a massaging effect.
Another enhancement with this model is the upgraded water heating system. This new "Hybrid" heating technology takes the advantages of reservoir tank heaters, with the advantages of the on-demand instant heaters, and combines them into a single heating system. This new hybrid heating technology also has a cosmetic benefit as well - the new BB 2000 Bliss is 25% slimmer in height compared to previous generation models, making the unit sleeker looking and more contemporary.
Not only is the unit an all-new design, but the remote control has been fully re-designed as well. The remote control has been upgraded to include a large LCD display which quickly shows which features are being used and at which setting (e.g., low, medium or high water pressure). You now have a choice of colors as well - choose a white remote or black remote to better match the decor of your bathroom.
The BB 2000 still has the other features you'd expect in a seat of this class - such as a heated toilet seat, slow-closing seat and lid, air dryer, automatic air deodorizer, and energy saving mode just to name a few. Watch the video above to learn more!

Bio Bidet Bliss BB-2000 Features:
With over 15 years of manufacturing experience, Bio Bidet is one of the most recognized brands in the world. The BB 2000 Bliss Series is their flagship model. After a successful 10 year run with the Bio Bidet BB 1000, the all new BB 2000 comes completely redesigned with virtually every component upgraded to capture the latest in modern technology.
Here is a link to our official review of this seat: bidetsPLUS' Bio Bidet BB 2000 Review. But we wanted to give you our informal thoughts and write-up below as well.
Installation took about 20 minutes. Once you get your existing toilet seat removed, it's really easy to secure the mounting bracket - two bolts secure the mounting bracket to your toilet. Once the mounting bracket is secure, the unit slides onto the bracket and "clicks" into place. A "T-Connection" or "T-Valve" is included with your shipment which "splits" your existing cold water supply so you can connect a hose to the bidet seat. Then, you just have to plug the unit into a nearby outlet (the electric cord is 38 inches long and extends from the right hand side if you're facing the toilet). All parts for installation come included in the box.
The Bio Bidet BB 2000 Bliss is operated with a wireless remote control. The remote control actually comes in your choice of two colors - white or black. We chose white because it went with our bathroom better. A wall-mounting bracket comes included so you can hang the remote on the wall next to your toilet. The mounting bracket comes with double-sided tape on the back so it's easy to stick. Alternatively, you can use the two mounting screws which come inlcuded and just screw it on to your wall if you prefer. Once the mounting bracket is secure, it's easy to slide the remote in and out so you can hold the remote in your hand.
The BB 2000 has a rather long list of features (listed above). Rather than re-hash all of them, we will go over some of the highlights that differentiate this model from other seats. A stainless steel nozzle is one. This is an upgrade over the previous generation BB 1000 (and most other seats) which had plastic nozzles. The Bio Bidet 2000 Bliss is also equipped with an advanced Hybrid Water Heating System. Most seats nowadays have moved to tankless heating which has many benefits over the older reservoir tank heaters. One of the drawbacks with tankless systems however, is that sometimes you may feel a split-second of cold water when the wash starts as the water heats up. But not with the BB 2000. The engineering team cleverly designed a solution that integrates tankless heating that always starts warm. The result is a warm water wash that starts at whichever temperature you set.
Another area of difference is water pressure. While most other seats offer spray volume in the neighborhood of 0.5 liters per minute, the BB 2000 outputs 0.7 liters per minute - about 40% more water. This is important because water pressure is a big driver behind the performance and efficiency of a bidet toilet seat. There are 5 different settings you can set the water pressure at with the BB 2000; we found the 3rd setting setting to be as strong as the maximum setting on most other seats.
A convenient feature we found on the Bio Bidet 2000 is you can program the remote to automatically oscillate and/or pulsate the water stream when starting your wash. To put this in perspective - to "wash and oscillate" on another model, you would have to hit two buttons on the remote - Wash, then Oscillate. Or if you wanted to "wash and oscillate and pulsate," you would have to hit three buttons on the remote - Wash, then Oscillate, then Pulsate. But with the BB 2000, you can program this into a single touch of a button. We were really impressed by this feature as it's not offered on any other bidet seat today. It's very useful since most users do use the oscillate feature when washing.
We also need to mention the night light and the clock on the remote control because they are really neat, unique features. The night light is awesome and it really works! And it makes the seat look really cool and your toilet high-tech. It emits a cool blue light from the side of the seat so you can quickly find the toilet in the dark. In fact, it even looks good during the day. Our only wish is that it would turn off automatically during the day; you have to turn it off manually on the remote control. Or you can leave it on 24 hours a day - since it's powered by LED, the electricity draw is minimal.
The clock on the remote control is pretty useful too. It's not something you think about until you have it. Because really, who has a clock in their bathroom? Nobody. But when you have a clock on your remote control, you do actually look at it. You can see how much time you have left in the morning, as you're getting ready in the bathroom. Or you can see what time you're putting the kids to sleep today, as you brush their teeth at night. It's handy to have.
And just a couple more quick hits: (1) the spray on the BB 2000 is noticeably wider than the previous generation BB 1000, and wider than most other seats we've tested. There were some complaints that the spray on the BB 1000 was a bit "sharp." And (2) yes, you CAN turn off the automatic air deodorizer fan on the Bio Bidet 2000. We've heard feedback from customers wishing they could turn the fan off on previous models, because of the "whirring" sound that goes on (especially if the bathroom is adjacent to a bedroom).
Boy that was a long Editor's Note, and we didn't even touch on the basic features. It just goes to show how much we have to say about this product. Just a bunch of subtle differences and when looked at all together, makes for a bidet toilet seat that stands apart. Very detailed in its craftsmanship. Bio Bidet has been around a long time and it is evident in their design of this seat.
New to Bio Bidet? A Brief Q & A:
|What is the Bio Bidet 2000?||The Bio Bidet 2000 is Bio Bidet's flagship bidet toilet seat. Over 15 years of manufacturing experience has gone into its engineering. Great looks with superior washing performance. In addition to adjustable water pressure, temperature and position settings - it also includes a heated toilet seat and warm air dry.|
|How long is the warranty?||The Bio Bidet 2000 includes a full 100% three year warranty. Other seats have declining coverage in the outer years, e.g., 75% coverage in Year 2 and 50% coverage in Year 3. But the Bio Bidet 2000 has 100% coverage for all three years. This is Bio Bidet's best warranty.|
|Why would this model be a good choice?||The Bio Bidet 2000 performs really well. When you combine the fact that (1) it outputs the most water, (2) has a wider-set spray, and (3) the nozzle oscillates nearly 2x faster than other models - you get exceptional washing performance.|
Who is the Bio Bidet Bliss BB 2000 best for?
Choosing the right bidet seat can be hard, especially for those who are fairly new to bidets. There are several different brands and models and it can feel a bit overwhelming deciding which one is best for what you are looking for. So we wanted to provide a bit more practical information based on our years of experience to help people decide which bidet is best for their needs. The Bio Bidet Bliss BB 2000 is one of our best-sellers, so we wanted to share a few of the biggest reasons why this seat is so popular with those who like this model. If these factors are high on your list of important features, then this bidet seat is likely the best option for you.
One of the biggest draws of the Bio Bidet BB 2000 is the stronger spray that the wash functions provide to users. The spray volume, which basically is a measure of how much water is moved through the nozzle, is about 40% larger on this model than it is on most others (approximately 0.7 liters per minute versus about 0.5 liters per minute on average with most other units). Bio Bidet also updated the water heating system on the BB 2000 over their older BB 1000 model. Its new hybrid water heating system offers continuous warm water for as long as you wish to wash unlike the reservoir tank-style water heating found on the BB 1000 and other models. If a strong spray with limitless warm water function appeals to you, then this seat is going to be a very good choice for you.
In addition the Bio Bidet BB 2000 also has a couple of other features that make it stand out against other models depending on your needs and priorities. The weight limit on this bidet seat is 450 pounds, which is the highest weight limit of any seat available – most other bidets have a weight limit of 330 pounds. Also included is an enema wash function to help alleviate constipation. For some with certain medical issues, the enema wash feature can be very useful. If you are looking for these features, then the Bio Bidet BB 2000 is your best option.
Next, we will go through the different features how to operate the features with the remote control.
How do I use the Bio Bidet Bliss BB 2000? A breakdown of features and using the remote control
The remote control that comes with this bidet seat (available in white or black color) is the control center for virtually all of the features packed into this seat. At a glance, the remote has two sections: the top section which is comprised of an LCD screen and the bottom half which is comprised of the operating buttons. The LCD screen is not interactive, so you aren’t going to touch the screen but rather it is just there to show you what features are being used and the levels of the different settings. So the screen is just informational. The thing most people find most useful about the LCD screen is the fact that it has a digital clock on it. Since a lot of us don’t have clocks in the bathroom, the clock seems like a smart and practical addition to the Bio Bidet Bliss BB 2000.
The bottom half of the remote control is where you’ll find eighteen buttons laid out to help you take advantage of all the seat's features. Some buttons you will probably hardly ever use, such as the buttons to set the time for the digital clock. Other buttons, like the posterior and feminine wash buttons, you’ll use regularly. Some folks can feel a bit overwhelmed by all the buttons and the icons on the LCD screen, so in this section we want to demystify the remote control and break down how to use it in practical terms.
Top Row of Buttons
Top row – The top row of buttons on the Bio Bidet 2000’s remote control are the most commonly used buttons. From left to right you will find the Stop button; Posterior Wash button; Feminine Wash button; and the Air Dryer button. Pressing each of these buttons will activate the corresponding feature, while pressing the stop button will stop all bidet functions. You'll hear an audible chime when pressing each of the buttons, so you can have some feedback while operating. But the sounds can also be de-activated if you prefer. The remote is pretty easy to use, and you can see each button is marked with an icon instead of text, which makes the face of the remote control less-cluttered.
Once people have adjusted the settings to their liking (more on that below), they may rarely even use any buttons besides these. So the top row of buttons will certainly be the most-often used. Next we’ll spend a bit more time on the second row buttons since they are used for some of the more advanced features, as well as for programming the bidet seat.
Second Row of Buttons
Second Row – These four buttons are popular additional features beyond the basic wash functions. From the left, the first button is for the Enema, or Vortex wash, which can be used to help stimulate a bowel movement. The second and third buttons serve dual functions depending on when you press the buttons.
The second button initiates the oscillating wash if it is pressed during the wash cycle. The oscillating wash on the Bio Bidet Bliss BB 2000 will quickly move the nozzle forward and backward as it sprays, so a larger area is cleaned. This is a popular feature since it offers an even better cleaning than just using the stationary nozzle wash, but instead of needing to press this button every time to use it, you can make the oscillating feature the default mode. To do this, which essentially preset every wash to be an oscillating wash - simply press this button for about three seconds once you are seated. You will hear a chime which tells you the oscillating function has been saved. If you press the second button while you are not on the seat, this button will activate the shower nozzle function which cleans the nozzle if you want to periodically use this to clean the nozzle tip more than the automatic self-rising already does.
The third button, which says “Auto” on it, has two uses just like the second button. If you are seated on the unit and have not yet pressed any of the wash buttons (like the posterior or feminine wash buttons), then this will run a 30 second wash followed immediately by a one minute dry cycle. However - if you have already initiated one of the wash functions and press this third button, it will activate the Massage wash. You will notice that the wash stream will begin to pulse in an alternating high pressure/low pressure pattern for a massage-like effect. The Massage wash feature can be automatically set as the default spray pattern on the BB 2000 in the same way as the Oscillating wash can be set. Simply press the button for three seconds until you hear it “ding” and the spray pattern will then automatically be set to the pulsating massage pattern.
The fourth and final button of the second row is the Air Deodorizer button. The deodorizer can be set by pressing the button for three seconds, and when you hear a single ding it means the deodorizer is on. If you press it again for three seconds and hear two dings then the deodorizer is off. When set, the air deodorizer will automatically run. It stops automatically after one minute.
Adjustment Control Buttons
The next section of six buttons are the plus and minus buttons, the up and down arrow buttons, as well as the water and seat temperature buttons. The plus and minus buttons are used to adjust the water pressure, with the minus button decreasing the pressure and the plus button increasing the pressure. Similarly, the up and down arrow buttons will adjust the position of the wash nozzle during the wash cycle. The up arrow will move the nozzle farther forward while the down button moves it farther back. Between these sets of buttons you will find the water temperature button which has a small thermometer icon on to of wavy lines intended to indicate water. Simply press the button once to increase the water temperature across four settings – Off, Low, Medium and High. Below this button you’ll see a button that looks like a toilet seat with a °F symbol. Just like with the water temperature, simply press this button to adjust the seat temperature to Off, Low, Medium and High.
Bottom Row of Buttons
The bottom row of buttons you shouldn’t need to use often. The first button says “Time” on it and is used to set the time of the clock on the remote’s LCD screen. To set the time, first press this button, and then you will use the second button to adjust the hour and the third button to adjust the minutes. The last button on the bottom row is for the energy saving mode. Turning on the energy saver mode will automatically set the seat and water temperatures to the low setting when the seat is not in use. When you sit on the unit again, it will adjust the temperature settings to those you have saved.
The important thing to remember with the remote control is that once you find the settings you like, you won’t need to use most of the buttons again. So don’t be intimidated by the remote. Once you play around with it a bit, it’s a piece of cake to use!
What might I be missing with this bidet seat compared to others?
Whenever you are choosing between items to purchase – be it a car or computer or yes, even a bidet seat – one thing you typically want to know is what will be missing with this option versus others? So here we’ll go over a few of the features not included with the Bio Bidet Bliss BB 2000 that are available on certain other models.
Some seats like the TOTO S550e and Swash 1400 have two user presets so you can save the preferred water temperature, water pressure and nozzle position settings for two different users. The BB 2000 does not include this feature, however - the unit will retain the most recently used settings. If there is only one primary user, or if different users have similar settings preferences, then this isn’t really a factor. The Bio Bidet 2000 does not have an automatic opening and closing lid which you will find on the TOTO S550e, though the seat and lid are both slow-closing to prevent slamming. Like most bidet seats, the lid is not designed to be weight bearing so you wouldn’t want to sit on the closed lid. If being able to sit on the closed lid is important, you can do so with the Brondell Swash seats. Also – the Bio Bidet 2000 has a night light on the side of the unit, however it differs slightly from other bidets that have the night light that illuminate in the bowl area rather than on the side of the unit.

Final Thoughts on the Bio Bidet BB 2000
The Bio Bidet BB 2000 continues to stand out as one of the top electric bidet seats on the market. The larger spray volume and greater spray strength, as well as the vortex wash, means that the BB 2000 offers a superior washing experience for users. The upgrade to the hybrid water heating system for continuous on-demand warm water is a nice addition as well. The higher weight limit and strong warranty add to the value of this bidet. Overall, the Bio Bidet 2000 has been one of the most popular seats out there and continues to be a top choice for those whose top priority is having a strong, effective spray with continuous warm water. Other unique features like the higher weight-limit and vortex wash function also attract many buyers to this model. The BB 2000 remains one of the most highly recommended electric bidet seats by people in the industry as well as users who have experienced it first-hand.
A: It’s the technology really. The Bio Bidet 1000 was released 10 years before the Bio Bidet 2000. A 10 year gap in the electronic world is significant. Imagine a computer released 10 years ago vs. today. So the 2000 model is a much newer seat with newer technology. The biggest upgrades include on-demand, tankless water heating, a wider spray, stainless steel nozzles, improved nozzle oscillation, hydro-flush nozzle cleaning, and a night light. And because the 2000 doesn’t have a big bulky water tank inside, it’s more streamlined. The 2000 model is 25% thinner than the previous generation 1000 model.
Q: I’m considering either the Bio Bidet 2000 or the TOTO S350e. What are the differences between these two seats?
A: Well the first thing you’ve probably noticed is the difference in price, where the TOTO S350 is a couple hundred dollars more. For the extra money, you receive an ultra-compact design. At just 4” tall the TOTO S350e is the thinnest electronic bidet in our store. You also receive the eWater feature which mists the toilet bowl with electrolyzed water before and after each use, and an automatic open/close seat and lid. However, the water output is more limited at 0.4 liters per minute on the TOTO S350e vs. 0.7 liters per minute on the Bio Bidet 2000. Simply put – the Bio Bidet 2000 will wash you better because it outputs more water. You also get a stainless steel nozzle instead of the plastic nozzle on the TOTO. And the 3 year warranty you get on the Bio Bidet 2000 is longer than the 1 year warranty you get from TOTO
Q: What’s the difference between the Bio Bidet 2000 and 1700 model?
A: These seats are identical except for two differences (1) the 2000 has a wireless remote control whereas the 1700 has an attached control panel and (2) the 2000 has a built-in night light whereas the 1700 does not.
Q: How does the warranty work?
A: Your purchase includes a three year warranty, with 100% coverage for all three years. This differs from other seats which typically offer declining coverage in the outer years, e.g., 75% coverage in Year 2 and 50% coverage in Year 3. But with the Bio Bidet 2000, you’re fully covered at 100% for all three years.
Q: What is the weight limit of this model?
A: The bidet can support persons weighing up to 450 pounds. This compares to other bidet seats which have a weight limit of 300 pounds, so the Bio Bidet 2000 has the highest weight limit of any seat in our store.
Q: Do most people choose the white remote or black remote?
A: Approximately 80% of people choose the white color remote. This is likely due to the fact it matches the toilet better. Plus other fixtures in the bathroom, e.g., sink and tub, are typically white as well. But if you have a darker décor in your bathroom, black may be more suitable depending on your tastes and preferences.
Q: I’ve heard complaints that, with other models, that the automatic air deodorizer fan turns on at random hours, including the middle of the night. Can you turn the air deodorizer off?
A: Yes. You can disable/re-enable the automatic air deodorizer thru the remote control. When disabled, you can still turn the air deodorizer on/off manually, or just leave it off permanently.
Q: I read in the Editor’s Review, that you can program the unit so the bidet starts oscillating the nozzle as soon as the wash starts. How do you do that?
A: It’s really easy. All you need to do is, while seated on the unit, hold the Oscillate button down for 3 seconds, until you hear a chime. You can revert back to the default setting by holding the Oscillate button for 3 seconds again, until you hear a double chime.
Q: What side does the electric cord extend from?
A: When facing the toilet, the electric cord extends from the right hand side as you look at the bidet, and is 38 inches long. And FYI - the water connects on the opposite side, on the left side if you were facing the toilet.
Q: Is everything required for installation included in the box?
A: Yes, everything is included. In the box you’ll find the mounting kit, hoses, and all other parts required to complete the install.
Q: Do I need a plumber to install? How long does installation take?
A: All of our bidet seats are designed for “Do It Yourself” installation and any able-bodied person can do it. It’s just a matter of fastening/unfastening some bolts and screwing/unscrewing some hoses. No special skills are necessary and the vast majority of our customers install their seats themselves. Installation will take 20 – 30 minutes.
