The all new Brondell Swash 1400 is the latest series model from Brondell. While on the outside it sports a similar body as the current Brondell Swash 1000, the Swash 1400 incorporates some updates and improvements based on feedback from Brondell's loyal customer base over the past several years.
The Swash 1400 still retains all the main features you would expect in an advanced bidet seat. These features include posterior wash, feminine wash, adjustable water temperature, adjustable water pressure, adjustable spray position and spray width. With all of these customizable features, you'll be able to find the right combination that works best for you. Even the temperature of the warmed toilet seat can be controlled with the touch of a button. When done washing, use the built-in warm air dryer to help with residual moisture after washing. The slow-closing seat and lid close gently, so the sound of slamming toilet seats in your home will be no more. And you're free to sit down on the sturdy, sittable lid of the Swash 1400 which unlike other bidet seats - is designed so you can sit on the lid too.
In addition to improved internal components designed to increase the durability of the seat, this newly designed unit features an all new wireless remote control. This is noteworthy since the remote control is your primary interface to interact with the seat. You'll notice three additional buttons towards the bottom of the remote when compared to its predecessor: an "Auto" button, a "User 1" button and a "User 2" button. The "Auto" button activates the wash cycle which is immediately followed by an air dry. This eliminates the secondary step of pressing the "Dry" button after washing. The "User" buttons work as user presets. This allows you to set individual wash preferences such as water temperature, water pressure, spray position and spray width for two different users.
Another addition is the convenient night light. As people get older, night-time restroom use becomes more common but who wants to turn the lights on and blind themselves in the middle of the night? With the Brondell Swash 1400 you'll have a handy night light which provides a gentle glow of the toilet so you know where to walk to, or know where to aim! The removable/replaceable carbon air deodorizer cartridge represent another upgrade. With the prior model, the carbon filter was not replaceable which would result in reduced efficacy of the air deodorization system over time. But now if you feel your air deodorizer isn't working like it used to, you can insert a fresh cartridge.
Brondell has taken the steps to take what was already a great product and make several improvements in this new model. We expect these product refinements to be well-received from the bidet community and existing customers who are looking for an upgrade/replacement of an older model. And when you consider that the lifespan of a bidet seat is several years, it's nice to have an option with these advanced features which will hold up with technology developments over time.
Available in white and beige.

New to Brondell? A Brief Q & A:
|What is the Brondell Swash 1400?||The Brondell Swash 1400 is a bidet toilet seat which provides a warm water wash after using the restroom. This is Brondell's latest and 3rd generation model - supplanting the 1st generation Swash 800 and 2nd generation Swash 1000 series.|
|When was it released?||The Brondell Swash 1400 was released in May 2017. Notable upgrades over previous models include a night light, 1 touch auto wash & dry, replaceable air deodorizer cartridges and a longer feminine nozzle providing more forward reach for women. Improved body design is more attractive and sleek.|
|Why would this model be a good choice?||The Brondell Swash 1400 does a good job blending looks with performance. It's a good-looking seat that works well too. Swash 1000 owners looking to upgrade will welcome the subtle yet noticeable improvements to the body design, and the night light is more handy than you think.|
Some Feature Highlights:
The all new redesign of the Swash chassis includes a hidden port for your water and power connections. A pair of cable clips are included, which join your water and power cords together for a convenient look. Also new is the replaceable air deodorizer. While the previous Swash 1000 had a deodorizer too, it wasn't accessible and the carbon filter couldn't be changed. These active carbon cartridges can now be replaced and are easy to swap out.
Swash 1400 Remote Control:
You interact and send commands to your bidet seat through the remote control. Brondell's new, refreshed remote comes with a similar color design as before, but the corners have become more rounded. It's still easy to hold in one hand though, and you can access all the buttons with your thumb. And the wall mounting kit is great. The magnetic cradle is the best design we've seen for docking your remote control. Hold the remote close to the cradle, and you'll feel the magnets engage to bring the remote home.
A: Yes, the Brondell Swash 1400 and all of our electric bidet toilet seats must be plugged into a standard 120V GFI outlet in order for any of the features to work. The power cord extends from the rear left side of the bidet as you are facing the toilet, and it is approximately 4 feet long.
Q: Do I need to hire a plumber to install?
A: The bidet seat is designed for do-it-yourself (DIY) installation and does not require a plumber. Most customers can install the bidet in about 30 minutes or less. All of the installation hardware needed for installation comes with the bidet, including a T-Valve and bidet hose for connecting to your existing water line as well as a mounting kit to install on top of your toilet.
Q: Do I need a hot water connection?
A: No, the Brondell Swash 1400 and other electric bidet seats heat the water internally. The bidet uses a tankless system for instant and continuous warm water that stays warm for as long as you wash. You should only connect the bidet to a cold water line. Connecting to a hot water line is not necessary and may damage the bidet.
Q: What is the weight limit?
A: The weight limit for the seat is 330 pounds. And unlike most bidet seats, the Swash 1400 has a lid you can sit on with a weight limit of 270 pounds.
Q: Can I return it if I don’t like it?
A: Bidet seats are hygienic products and typically are not returnable once they have been installed, however the Brondell Swash 1400 is covered under our 30 Day Risk-Free Trial. So you can return the unit if you are not satisfied with it by contacting us within 30 days of your purchase date.
Q: Can I use the bidet as a regular toilet seat if I don’t want to use the bidet functions?
A: Yes, if you don’t activate the features through the remote control, you can simply use the toilet as you normally would.
Q: What if I have a problem with the bidet?
A: The product is backed by a three year limited warranty from Brondell. You have 100% coverage of parts and labor during your first year of ownership, and then 75% during year two and 50% during year three respectively.
Q: Is it hard to use the different features?
A: All of the features are operated through a remote control which comes with a wall mounting kit so you can place the remote wherever is most convenient. To use the wash functions, you simply press either Rear or Front to begin the wash you want, and you can press the Stop button at any time to stop the spray. Making adjustments to the water temperature, pressure and nozzle position is done the up and down arrows on the remote which are marked. Most people find the remote very simple and easy to use.
Q: How do I clean the bidet seat?
A: We recommend using warm soapy water and a soft cloth when cleaning the surfaces of the bidet. Avoid caustic cleaning chemicals as they may streak or scratch the plastic of the bidet. The seat also has a nozzle sterilization feature which uses silver oxide to sterilize the wash nozzle. You can use a brush to clean the nozzle more thoroughly as well, though you do not need to regularly do this as there is a self-rinsing feature that cleans the nozzles with a pressured wash of water before and after use.
Q: What is the difference between the Swash 1400 and Swash 1200?
A: Brondell’s most popular bidet seat by far is the Swash 1400, which looks the same as the Swash 1200 but has some important differences. For example, the 1400 includes a popular oscillating wash function which moves the nozzle back and forth during the cleaning cycle for a better wash and larger area of coverage. Many users utilize the oscillating wash every time they use the bidet. Another feature on the 1400 not available on the 1200 is the warm air dryer with adjustable air temperature. Other notable features missing from the 1200 include a built-in air deodorizer, nozzle sterilization and a stronger warranty (one year vs. three year limited warranty).
Q: What color is the Brondell Swash 1400?
A: The Swash 1400 is available in a standard white color like most bidet seats, and there is also a beige color option. The beige color, also referred to as “biscuit” is a light beige that matches toilets that are beige or biscuit colored. The beige option is an additional $99.00.
Q: What is the width adjustment feature?
A: The Brondell Swash 1400 has a unique width adjustment not found on other bidet seats. The feature allows you to change how wide the stream of water is during the washing cycle. The stream width is initially set to the narrowest setting, and to adjust the width you simply press the button marked “Wide Spray” on the remote control. There are three width settings that increase width each time you press the button until you are at the widest setting. Pressing the button again while on the widest setting will change the spray back to the narrowest stream setting.
Q: What does it mean that it has a twin nozzle system?
A: Some bidets use a single nozzle for both posterior and feminine wash. The twin nozzle system of the Swash 1400 uses two separate nozzles, one for posterior wash and a separate nozzle dedicated for feminine wash. Some people prefer having separate nozzles for the different wash functions, but functionally speaking the single nozzle and twin nozzle systems both provide exceptional cleaning for both posterior and feminine needs.
Where have you been all my life??

This is the second Brondell. Loved the first one, the heated seat was what attracted us in the first place. Of course never felt cleaner too! The light is a bonus. Everything is good.
Nice, great value
Posted by Bob on 5th Jan 2018
It is very nice. The toilet is round in the guest bathroom so we needed a solution that was round. All functions are very good. It would have been nice to have an enema spray for more water pressure (would have given 5 stars). The wafer batteries in the remote seem questionable, time will tell if that is an issue. Overall it was simple to install, looks good, low profile on the seat, and works well, at a very reasonable price point. The Wife likes the sanitation function better than our other more expensive brand.
Great addition to our bathroom!

This is my first bidet so I researched extensively before I bought it. The video I found on BidetsPlus' website was really helpful. After owning it for a month, I absolutely love it. Holy cow why didn't I get one earlier. The warm water wash oscillates the nozzle so you get a thorough wash every time. So much better than wiping over and over with paper when you can just let a spray of water do the job. And the heated seat is just heavenly, particularly here in the Boston winter. Get it. You won't regret it.

Bad headline pun aside, we're happy with our purchase so far. It's installed in a half bath where a true bidet installation wasn't an option--now I'm thankful it wasn't. Overall, the Brondell Swash 1400 bidet seat is much better an actual bidet. The heated seat, stainless steel wands, integrated nightlight, back and forth spray option, rear or front spray option, sterilization, immediate warm water, dryer and air deodorizer filter, etc. make for a wonderful experience. The step-by-step installation video on Bidetsplus.com was reassuring and helpful. The install took less time than expected and was very easy. We recommend the Swash 1400 without reservation. We purchased the inline water filter even though we have a Kinetico water softener system. The claim is that the Swash 1400 and its heater will last longer by installing it. Since the filters cost so little for the benefit they provide, it makes sense to add this to your cart. At first, we felt a slight rise in the back of the seat, but we don't really notice it now. One possible future upgrade: It would be nice to have a dimmer on the blue night light.

My husband always raves about the Japanese hotel toilets whenever he travels to Japan on business so a Swash 1400 was a perfect Christmas gift! We both love it.
Wish tried earlier in life
Posted by Marie R on 28th Nov 2017
I brought the Swash 1400. Both my husband and I really love having the bidet. It is nice to wash after using the commode. Every time we use the bidet we feel so much more clean. The only thing I would change is it needs more water pressure (personally preferred). However, it does a good job and we would recommend to everyone. We do not understand why this is not a common seat on all commodes. It must be the cost, but it is worth the money to use this from childhood. We will never do without a bidet again. Americans need to be educated on the bidets.
All's Well That Ends Well

Great product...but: the remote is hard to read with our 75 year old eyes. Owned the Toto S3000 for 12 years. Repaired once for $125, but when it failed again I read many reviews on You Tube and settled on the Brondell 1400 because it won most comparison tests, and was half the cost of my Toto. The stainless steel wands are most hygienic--one for the bidet and one for the Mrs. My wife loves the "Blue Grotto" color of the water (night light). Here's hoping the Brondell lives up to its promise.

Our first bidet seat and we're not going back! How wonderful this toilet seat is. It has a warm toilet seat and warm water and warm air dryer. Winter's already starting to set in and it's just heaven in the bathroom. You don't realize until you wash with water, how bad toilet paper is. I can't believe I was doing that my whole life. The warm water wash is just the best.
Posted by Rebecca on 29th Aug 2017
Works great. I have had it for several weeks and I actually do look forward to the experience. It doesn't fully dry you so a pat dry is needed. All in all great and easy on your bottom.
Worth the upgrade
Posted by Renee on 25th Aug 2017
After owning the Brondell Swash 1000 for 4 years, we decided to get a second one. But when we started shopping we saw the Brondell Swash 1400 was released so decided to get the newer model. There are some important upgrades that we didn't even think to have - like the night light which is really convenient to have. The user-presets are useful between me and my husband too. The body of the seat looks a little cleaner/crisper and moving the power cord to the same side as the water connection was well thought out.
Bum Wash at its Best
Posted by Marlon on 27th Jun 2017
Can't say enough about the Swash 1400. Rarely do people say they look forward to going to the bathroom but you will if you have the Swash waiting to give your Bum a Wash. I recommend to everyone I know.
Posted by JR on 4th May 2017
We pre-ordered the Brondell Swash 1400 and received it a bit early. Having used it for a week now, we are very pleased with our purchase. Works like a charm and adds a high-tech look to our bathroom. We had some guests over and they were impressed too. Great product by a great vendor.
