About the Product
The award-winning Swash 1000 bidet toilet seat is the ultimate in bathroom comfort and hygiene. Inside the sleek design and elegant styling, the Swash is packed with features - from a pulsating massage wash to a warm air dryer - to provide you with a complete "home spa" experience.
The TOTO S300 Washlet is probably the most famous bidet toilet seat in the world. Engineered for luxury, the TOTO S300 comes equipped with both posterior and feminine wash functions. Wash features include adjustable water temperature, adjustable water pressure, and nozzle position adjustment. There is also a water pulse mode which pulsates the water stream and a massage mode which oscillates the wash nozzle, widening the cleaning area.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Brondell Swash 1000 S1000-EB Advanced Bidet Elongated Toilet Seat
  • Very easy to install, basically an electrical outlet. Be sure to get the elongated size.
  • Swash has separate stainless steel wands for each nozzle. Stainless steel is generally accepted as being more hygienic and resistant to bacteria than plastic, and the separate wand for front and back wash also seems more hygienic.
  • The stainless nozzles are a big plus as well. The remote is more user friendly in my opinion, along with having a magnetic mounting bracket option. Not to mention that the Brondell is a bit less expensive. A great product overall, and I prefer the Brondell over the Toto.
  • The negative is that the "female's nozzle" does not extend far enough forward to wash the front area. This really is just for the back.
  • I loved this for the short period of time it worked properly. Then the rear nozzle stopped extending fully. No problem, use the front and shift a little. Until it stopped extending. I got down there and saw that minerals from our hard water had accumulated on the nozzles.
Toto Washlet S300 SW554-11 Elongated Front Toilet Seat
  • Round seat opening is shaped more like an oval (the seat itself is round), which provides extra room in front for guys compared to the other round toilet seats in our home.
  • This is a luxury that everyone should own in their lifetime. I used these gadgets in some 5-star hotels in Japan, and couldn't believe how squeaky clean they are, and more ... just how great it feels. Turns "the dirty deed" into something warm and wonderful.
  • Installation was simple; all the needed hoses and fasteners were included. Installing the first seat took me about 20 minutes, only because I didn't want to rush the process. I would suggest mounting the included remote on the wall, above your toilet-paper dispenser.
  • Sometimes the wand does not seem to go back far enough. This is easily solved by moving forward on the seat a bit.
  • Front: This is also a shower, but it's very soft (even turned all the way up). I practically have to sit on the lid in order to get it pointed in the right direction. This model of bidet toilet seat only has one wand. I wish it had 2 wands instead.
  • It only has one wand, the "dry" function blows too softly to get you dry, and I have to scoot alllllll the way to the very back of the toilet seat to get the wand to hit anything but the crack of my butt.

What customers say about "Hygiene"
Brondell Swash 1000 S1000-EB Advanced Bidet Elongated Toilet Seat
  • Two separate nozzles for front and rear washing (Toto doesn't have this). Strong spray but you can go softer too.
  • This does everything you can imagine and more. Temperature controlled, move water jet to where you need it, deodorize, you name it.
  • I love that you can move the nozzle all around so it's hitting the right spot (male or female). It's amazing.
  • The "front" cleanse for women is like an assault on such delicate flesh. I simply cannot use this feature, even at the lowest setting.
  • Even with adjustable nozzle, frontal wash doesn't reach as far as it could so you need to scoot back to make it work.
  • Drier sits off to side - doesn't dry even on hottest setting. You would need a drier nozzle like the sprayer nozzle for adequate drying to take place.
Toto Washlet S300 SW554-11 Elongated Front Toilet Seat
  • The warm (or hot) pressurized water now available to clean up is amazing, leaving us both feeling hygienically sanitized and refreshed.
  • This has been a godsend. My child has difficulty cleaning well due to disability. This seat has made my life much better & allows him more privacy. Expensive but worth it.
  • One of the best things I have ever bought. works great cleans very well and the deoderizer works great we put three fan vents in our bathroom and never use any now. the toto works so well.
  • Rear: This is one direct stream of water, and it's very powerful. Even when I turn the water pressure down quite a bit, it still feels a bit like a laser beam. It's so powerful, it feels like my toilet is trying to give me an enema.
  • The spraying wand is a bit too far back, I need to sit further back than I used to and set the wand to the front most position.

What customers say about "Control"
Brondell Swash 1000 S1000-EB Advanced Bidet Elongated Toilet Seat
  • Water temperature is good, there is a second of room temperature water when you start but i've experienced that on other bidets.
  • Gets you very clean, all temperatures are adjustable (heated seat, water), nozzles are adjustable forward and back and also oscillate, wide or narrow spray, it drys, remote control, took about 45 minutes to install with clear directions.
  • Adjustable pressure and width of spray. The up and down auto movement bidet function.
  • Water pressure, even on the highest setting is too weak for me. I've experienced Toto and their water pressure in the medium range was stronger than Swash at its highest.
  • Dryer takes too long (keep a dry wash cloth or hand towel nearby to finish up)
  • This is a nice Bidet. However, the water pressure was not adequate for my needs. My only issue was the water pressure.
Toto Washlet S300 SW554-11 Elongated Front Toilet Seat
  • Easy to install (took about 30 minutes). Settings for seat temp, pressure, wand position, dryer temp.
  • 2 energy saving modes for seating warming, one you can set to activate for 3/6/9 hours every day, another that's automatic based on your usage pattern, and they can be used together.
  • There're buttons for the basic functionalities on the unit itself, allowing operation without the remote if needed.
  • It thouroughly cleans everything with adjustable remote real time controls that control the water temperature, water pressure, oscillating versus nonoscillating spray mode, pulsating versus nonpulsating spray mode, plus arrows that adjust the temperature of the toilet seat.
  • No multiple user settings (as available on newer S300e models).

What customers say about "Features"
Brondell Swash 1000 S1000-EB Advanced Bidet Elongated Toilet Seat
  • Decent price for what is definitely a high-end unit, nozzle adjustments (forward/back), continuous warm water (never turns cooler), and a lid that you can sit on (most bidets don't have this).
  • Effective wand sterilizer and deodorizes well.
  • Can take heavier weight folks (more weight than Toto).
  • The constant hot water is nive and the seat warmer is as well. The two nozzles are nice the remote is comfy to hold.
  • Oscillating water nozzle (Move button) needs to have more back and forth range. You will end up shifting around on the seat anyway.
Toto Washlet S300 SW554-11 Elongated Front Toilet Seat
  • Ahhh... the joys of a warm toilet seat! And soft closing lid, so no more slamming. It cleans the wand between every use, so it's always clean.
  • Easy to install - a splitter needs to be connected to the water tank for connecting the washlet water hose, and a mounting plate for attaching the washlet to the toilet.
  • Water hose uses quick disconnect fitting and the washlet just clicks onto the mounting plate, allow the entire unit to be removed quickly without any tools.
  • A water filter built into the water splitter prevents the unit from getting clogged, it can be removed and cleaned.
  • Custom settings, wireless remote, warm seat, blow dryer ... this gadget has it all, and it's super easy to install - just follow the directions. Very happy with this, highly recommended.
  • Energy star settings are nice, but it would be better if the energy savings times could be fully customized via clock/programming.
  • The lid is really flimsy, definitely can't be used as a seat.
