What customers say about "Key Specs"
Brondell Swash 1200 S1200-EW Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE my bidet. It was very easy to install. It arrived very quickly after the order was placed. I'm just sorry I waited this long to instal one.
  • That alone in savings and the impact on the environment and our septic system is worth it. We’re adding in electric outlets to our other bathroom to buy another one this winter.
Brondell Swash 1400 S1400-EW Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
  • It does require a bit of work to get it connected to your water line and you will need a GFCI outlet close to use.
  • We really like our new Swash bidet system. Installation was very, very simple and took less than 20 minutes. The Swash does a surprisingly good job cleaning.
  • lmost incomparably more hygienic, time saving, toilet paper reducing, saves you from ever wiping yourself raw after a spicy meal, the list goes on. After using one for a while, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
  • Super easy to install, logical remote with a multitude of options (it seems a bit overwhelming at first glance but it's really simple and allows for the exact type of features you want).
  • I think this is an inevitability with the length required to store the nozzles plus all of the hardware inside to be seated on an American toilet with the tank so close.

What customers say about "Hygiene"
Brondell Swash 1200 S1200-EW Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
  • The warm air dryer and oscillating wand would have been awesome.
  • That's how great this product is. I don't even use toilet paper anymore but it is there if I need it.
  • I like the adjustablilty of the spray and the unlimited warm water.
  • This is my second bidet and I absolutely love it!... It cleans your bum very well and it is the best way to take care of many problems in that area.
Brondell Swash 1400 S1400-EW Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
  • The 1400 clean and drys just as well as they claimed to do so. A great aid for my wife's arthritic hand and cleans more thoroughly than toilet paper. Expensive but worth the money.
  • There are many more features on this new one. I found the dryer to be stronger thus drying has been improved from my previous one.
  • My wife uses both the rear and front cleaning modes and loves it.
  • It also has an eco mode and some memory setting which I never use.
  • My second issue is that occasionally the rear washing nozzle sometimes doesn't fully retract, and will spray me a little bit as it cleans itself.

What customers say about "Control"
Brondell Swash 1200 S1200-EW Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
  • Buttons are printed a bit small for my mother to see quickly but she adjusted fine and we’re so pleased with the purchase!!!
Brondell Swash 1400 S1400-EW Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
  • The only reasons why the Swash 1400 did not get 5 stars are the following... Programming the User 1 and User 2 settings and using those settings with the remote has not been working like we expected.
  • Basic features include: Front and back wash, 3 seat temps, 3 water temps, 3 water spray widths, I think 7 pressure levels (narrow on highest pressure will get you clean every time, I guarantee).
  • The buttons are large and easy to use.
  • There are so many features that put you in control of every feature.
  • I'm still experimenting with the various settings and controls on the remote. That said, it's simple to use -- intuitive. I've used it a handful of times now and would never go back to paper.

What customers say about "Features"
Brondell Swash 1200 S1200-EW Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
  • The warm heated seats inviting me to sit.. to the just right amount of water pressure on my bum made me feel fresh and clean all day long.
  • The nightlight however, stays on all the time. I wish it'll turn off if the lid was closed or perhaps some kind of motion sensing at least, cuz it is bright at night.
  • Heated seat, heated wash. I feel clean every time I use the bathroom. Ladies, every woman on earth needs one of these seats, find a brand, design, features and price you can afford you will ask yourself why you waited.
Brondell Swash 1400 S1400-EW Luxury Bidet Toilet Seat
  • Sometimes in the middle of the night, I don't feel like turning on the bathroom light because it's "overstimulating" and I may have a harder time getting back to sleep.
  • This is a great bidet seat. It was easy to install. And the heated set is nice.
  • The think I like least about it is although the water has three temperatures, it does not seem to get very warm.
  • The biggest life style change is the deodorizer. We no longer strike stick matches, spray stuff in the air and turn the exhaust fan on high. The deodorizer really works and it really pleases my wife. That alone is worth the price.
  • The warm seat, the cleaning mechanism and the remote control all do what they are supposed to and I leave my throne feeling better.
