Coway BA 13 has been discontinued and no longer in stock. See link: Brondell Swash 1000 which is nearly an identical seat - with similar feature set and design, also priced at $599.00
In addition to being one of the most technologically advanced units available, the Coway BA 13 is also one of the best looking bidet toilet seats you will find. Operated with a wireless remote control, this model offers a clean and modern look which will surely upgrade any bathroom.
A few of the advanced features you'll find 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. Also included are 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 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 Features:
Coway BA-13 Customer Testimonial:
The Coway BA13 is a modern and contemporary looking unit packed with all the latest features you'd look for in a 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 model for the Americas.
We have prepared our official review of this product here: bidetsPLUS' Coway BA13 Review. But you can continue reading below for our more informal thoughts and summary.
Operated with a wireless remote control (mounting bracket included so you can mount it on the wall), the the 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 you can 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 is the first to introduce stainless steel nozzles, adjustable spray-width, and nozzle sterilization features. You will find that only the Coway BA13 has the complete combination of all these features (or BA13s that have been private-labeled under another brand).
On top of all these wash features already included, you can further customize your wash experience. Nozzle position is adjustable to best suit your body. Water pressure can be adjusted as well. It also features 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, 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. You'll also find 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 it gets. But you don’t get that with this seat. It retains a sleek design, and looks very modern and contemporary. It’s a good looking seat.
And compared to other models which don’t recommend you sitting on its closed lid, you’re free to sit down on the closed lid. 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 is truly in a class of its own. With all these features, the only thing that's 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 here at bidetsPLUS!

My third Coway
Posted by Fred, Georgia USA on 26th Apr 2016
I've just bought and installed my 3rd Coway bidet BA-13. This one is the round version necessary to fit the only RV toilet I could find that would accept a conventional toilet seat. The motor home WAS the last place that I frequent that did not offer the enjoyment of our bidet. With the installation of a new toilet, minor plumbing modifications, and an additional electrical outlet we now have everything we have been enjoying for years in our home. I liked our home unit so much I bought one for my business which is where I spend most of my time otherwise. We are retiring soon and will finally be in the position to travel and camp on our own schedules; maybe weeks or months at a time -- Far too long to endure what has become indespensible. I know camping is supposed to be roughing it, but there is a limit. As it turns out one of my employees has a medical issue for which the bidet has proven to be of great help. So great in fact, he dreaded the weekends away from the office toilet. He bought one for home as well. For any RVers that may be interested, the Dometic 310 is the best RV toilet I found that can accommodate a Coway install. The round version is needed as this Dometic model is currently unavailable in an elongated version. It is however at "comfort height" which is 19". Not that it would have made my decision to pursue a bidet in my motor home any easier, but it is an eco-friendly addition due to the tremendous reduction in toilet tissue and the trouble that tissue causes in RV holding tanks. Bonus!
Great looks, great functionality

We are very pleased with our Coway BA-13. My husband got me one as a Christmas present and installed it himself so I can't speak to the installation process, but it took him about 30 minutes. What a joy! It's a pleasure to use and leaves me feeling fresh and clean every time. The remote control hangs on your bathroom wall, and it's very easy to take out of its magnetic holder and also to put back in place. It's also a very smart looking unit, and our bathroom looks more high-tech because of it.

When you reach middle age there develops a issue with freshness, not to mention flexibility issues. After a couple of knee surgeries i wish I had the Coway BA13. I have had it for about a month now, I curse my self for not getting it sooner...
I love my clean tushy!
Posted by IE on 24th Sep 2015
I would recommend this product to anyone especially if they have trouble reaching around like I do. The warm seat and warm water are a major plus too!
Love My Bidet
Posted by Martin G. on 31st Aug 2015
I had never tried a bidet before our overseas trip to Asia but our bathroom was equipped with one giving me a chance to try it. I found it to not only be more sanitary but it just cleaner. It's like this, would you wash your car with a dry piece of paper or would you use high pressure water. I knew when I got back to the states I would have to have one. The Coway fit my needs, easily installed, all the features work, I love it.
Coway BA13 Great Bidet
Posted by Liz on 27th Jun 2015
We bought our Coway BA13 a couple months ago and are very happy with our purchase. Not only is it more comfortable and soothing than toilet paper, we have been able to drastically cut back on our toilet paper usage too. The adjustable spray-width, when combined with the pressure controls, really lets you dial in the wash setting. And the slow closing seat is great - a feature I overlooked when buying, but not having slamming toilet seats in a house with kids is definitely a big plus.
Posted by Boris on 6th Apr 2015
I owned this product for a month now. So far, works flawless. It will be nice to have an option to keep seat heated but turn off bidet option. I would recommend this bidet to a friend.
I should have bought this a long time ago
Posted by Clarise on 17th Feb 2015
It works as advertised. The remote control is wonderful. I would recommend this bidet to anyone. Thank you for making a good product.
Better late than never
Posted by Gary on 5th Feb 2015
As seniors, the wife & I were apprehensive as buyers, never having used bidet seats, but in the short time we've owned & used the Coway seat, we continue to be amazed at the practical functionality & ease of use of this product. We both love it .. especially my wife! Thanx again to Bidetsplus for providing loads of comparison reviews to help with decision making, prompt shipping, and a great product that we should have had years ago!
Coway Bidet Fantastic
Posted by Ted B on 28th Jan 2015
Awesome comfort & cleanliness. Warm seat & water. Even use lots less TP.
Posted by Meg G on 23rd Dec 2014
This is our 3rd one. We bought the first for my Mother-in-law who has limited mobility. She lived with us part of the year. It has been a life saver. Remote is small enough for her to hold. When she moved in with her daughter it went with her. We missed it so much we bought one for each of our bathrooms. Love the heated seat. Lifesaver!
Great for all
Posted by Cynthia on 1st Dec 2014
We bought the Coway BA-13 3 yrs ago when my Mother-in-law had to move in with us. She has a severe case of MD. She is not able to clean herself. She has to be put on and taken off the toilet. After 2 months of me cleaning her I figured there had to be a better, more dignified way to deal with this. So thankful to find bidets plus. We just put her on the toilet and give her the remote. She is able to clean herself and now the boys can even help getting her to the bathroom. Being confined all day to a wheel chair the cleanliness is critical. No more sores from not getting clean. This has given her dignity back. She can't imagine living without it. Well now she has moved in with her daughter and taken the seat with her. I miss that seat. We are seriously considering buying one for us so when she visits we don't have to bring the seat with us. Plus we have both come to love it. Have had no problem with this product. The folks at Bidets Plus were very helpful in selecting the right one for us.
Posted by Mike on 23rd Aug 2014
Awesome product! Does what it says and more. The seat warmer is nice. The adjustable water pressure is great! And the all around functionality of the bidet is very nice. A+
The cleaner the better

Works well, a very clean finish
Great customer service
Posted by Don Stern on 9th May 2014
After discussing which seat would fit a one piece Kohler toilet with a "french curve", I decided on the Coway BA-13. It arrived in no time and only took me 20 minutes to install. This quality bidet does exactly what it was designed to do. I couldn't imagine wanting anything more from a bidet or from BidetsPlus. They answered all my concerns and provided a great experience. I'm very happy with the seat and BidetsPlus.
Throw off your inhibitions, be comfortable
Posted by Ron Busler on 3rd Mar 2014
While on vacation in parts of Europe I had contemplated using a bidet but was somewhat turned off (intimidated) when looking at the old conventional style mounted aside the toilet. While on vacation about four months ago I had the opportunity to actually use an automated one. This experience made me wonder why I didn’t get one sooner.
The reason I say this is because I know I’m not the only person out there who, without going into detail, uses five to ten feet of paper on the roll just to feel clean. Those of us who have, over the years, heard all the embarrassing clichés from our partners. Well, I want you to know I no longer have a thing to worry about when using my new Coway BA-13.
My home is in Western Canada. While searching the internet and trying to locate a local dealer that carried a high quality product and didn’t require a second mortgage was next to impossible. Although I am skittish about ordering anything out of the country, especially electronically, I want to assure you that my experience with bidetsPLUS and their very qualified associates made this purchase flow seamlessly. After a few emails everything was explained up front and the purchase went exactly as expected. Their associate answered all my questions and provided me with everything I needed to ensure the Coway bidet coordinated well with our bathroom arrangement.
For those of you that have aged somewhat and want a new lease on life, throw off your inhibitions and treat yourself to a whole new experience. You’ll love it.
Move to the civilized world with the BA-13
Posted by Barb on 15th Feb 2014
This wonderful bidet seat does everything promised. Quality is good. I like the stainless steel nozzles. I find the wide spray feature a plus and the water pressure choices sufficient. Low pressure is enough, really. I love it and hate the thought of being without it. I had 1,000 questions and BidetsPlus folks were patient, kind and knowledgeable. After much information gathering and investigation, went with the Coway BA13. It was very easy to install and it does everything promised. Highly recommend.Great Bidet Seat, Great Service from BidetsPlus
Good Bidet Seat, great customer service from BidetsPlus
Posted by Bob B. Omaha NE on 11th Feb 2014
I purchased the Coway BA13, great seat with all the right features. It works very well, even for a heavy, very large guy like me. If you wonder about whether they stand behind their product, well, now I've had experience there too. Had a problem with the dryer motor after 8 months and contacted BidetsPlus for help on email. They replied same day, gave me additional troubleshooting help over the phone to make sure it wasn't something I was doing wrong, then they filled out a return info sheet and instructions for me to send it in for warranty repair. I shipped the seat and it was repaired and returned on schedule, just like they said. I was nervous about trying to contact the overseas manufacturer, but BidetsPlus solved all that headache for me and made the arrangements. It was "easy-peazey" and that says a lot about their customer commitment -even after the sale. Thanks to BidetsPlus, I'll buy from them again. And I'm impressed with Coway features, usability, and customer support after the sale. Well done to all! I never thought a toilet seat would become so important to me, but it makes a real difference in quality of life. Coway changed our way of thinking about cleanliness. Now we miss it when we travel.
Wished I had invested in one years ago....
Posted by Jackie on 4th Jan 2014
Very nice product, bought the Conway BA 13. Esay to install, less than 20 minutes and ready to start playing with the remote.... No more cold seat in the mornings..
Its the Best
Posted by B on 30th Sep 2013
I had a Bidet in a custom Home we build 20 years ago.
When we retired and moved to another state the Tract Homes do not offer a Bidet. When I went to purchase a new tolit, the sales lady show me the
Toilet Seat Bidets. Price was over $1000.00
So I desided to check the internet to see what was available.After seeing all the Good reviews I desided to order The Coway Bidet at half that price.After Having it for several months I am very Happy that I purchased this Great product.My only regret is I did not purchase it before.
I have had my BA-13 for 8 months
Posted by Mort Abramson on 22nd Sep 2013
I did not want to comment until I had used my bidet for a while.
Now, after using it for 8 months, I am prepared to say that I don't know why I did not buy this wonderful item years ago.
Previous discomforts when using a toilet are no longer experienced, This unit is well-engineered and has been trouble-free. And, all my questions were quickly answered to my satisfaction by bidetsPLUS.
I recommend the unit and bidetsPLUS without reservation.
This is the Cadillac for sure
Posted by Connie Schenk, PhD on 7th Sep 2013
All features advertised work just as advertised. This really is extremely well designed and well thought out. Can be personally adjusted to fit personal preferences. Easily installed, according to my husband, who is definitely NOT a plumber! :-)
I recommend this as being absolutely excellent in all aspects, from installation to daily use.
great product even better customer service!
Posted by Cecilia S. on 15th Aug 2013
Great product, but the service is really outstanding. After the remote started malfunctioning (after 18 months of use) I contacted customer service and got a response back in the same day. New remote shipped out NO QUESTIONS ASKED! Doesn't get better than that.
we love our coway ba-13!
Posted by voorheeskids on 30th May 2013

Coway bidet seat--our third one!
Posted by David S. on 29th Apr 2013
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.
Not Sure How I Lived Without It
Posted by Scott on 28th Apr 2013
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.
Great bidet seat!
Posted by Barbara on 19th Apr 2013
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.
Great product, excellent customer service
Posted by Mark on 15th Mar 2013
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.
Better than other washlets
Posted by Sarah on 11th Feb 2013
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.
Posted by Akiko Fujimoto on 9th Feb 2013
Works very well. Will help to have larger printed instruction and larger drawings for senior citizens. We will buy another one.
Love this bidet!
Posted by Michelle on 11th Dec 2012
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.
Posted by Betty Dowds on 28th Nov 2012
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.
Researched a long time, made a good choice
Posted by David S. on 4th Jul 2012
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!
Posted by DonL on 19th Mar 2012
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.
Fresh as a daisy!
Posted by Susan Berry on 15th Feb 2012
I am so pleased with this toilet seat. My son put me on to it and I've thanked him many times. I've recommended it to everyone in the family and at least one other member is planning to get one. They'll be glad they did.
Thanks for a great product.
We love it!
Posted by Tim on 10th Nov 2011
Having tried a friend's recently installed bidet, as well as, other bidets while traveling in the Far East. We really thought they were great... You simply feel more clean. So, I decided to surprise my wife by ordering and installing one for us. I read many independent reviews and decided upon the Coway BA13. It arrived quickly and was a breeze to install. She was really surprised (and refreshed) when she came home form work. We love it and wonder how we ever got along without it.
Great value with loads of features
Posted by Lisa on 23rd Aug 2011
This is the second bidet seat I have owned, and I have found all the features are worth having. It is easy to operate. I appreciated the sanitizing feature, which my first seat didn't have. The Coway BA 13 lives up to its fine reputation, and BidetsPlus' customer service has been very good. I am going to order more for my new home which is under construction.
Works as advertised
Posted by Victor on 8th Aug 2011
Excellent quality product, which should be expected from a reputable manufacturer. Works as advertised. Installation is relatively easy. The free water filter is a plus. Checkout was simple and the shipping is fast.
Coway BA 13
Posted by Jessica on 18th Jul 2011
There were several choices with minor differences but after talking with customer service decided on the Coway BA 13. The ordering process was helpful and easy, the service was friendly. My handyman had trouble figuring out the install but after I called back, the rep gave him the instructions he needed. It works great.
