5 Bidet Seats with the Best Warranties
Electric bidet seats aren’t cheap, so it’s natural to wonder about the warranty protection that comes with them. All of our electric bidet seats come with a standard warranty ranging from 1-year limited warranties to 4-year full warranties. Some seats even come with the option of adding extended warranty coverage, giving you more ways to protect your investment. This article walks you through warranty basics and highlights the top bidet seats with the best warranties.
What’s in a Warranty?
Warranties provide financial protection in case your bidet seat has a problem due to defective parts or workmanship. As long as you don’t violate any of the warranty’s provisions, the warranty covers either the full or partial cost of parts and labor within a certain time period. The percentage of costs that are covered depends on whether the warranty is limited or unlimited.
Specifics vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but in general:
- Limited warranties cover a portion of cost of parts/labor while full warranties cover the entire cost of parts/labor
- Warranty coverage only applies to the original purchaser
- Proof of purchase is required to obtain warranty service
Why Does Buying from an Authorized Seller Matter?
Buying from an authorized dealer is key if you want maximum protection for your investment. Buying a seat from an unauthorized seller, including many third parties on Amazon, may seem like an appealing way to save a few dollars. However, you’ll have little recourse if something goes wrong with your order or if the seat is defective.
Buying from an authorized seller ensures that your seat is a new and authentic product that isn’t damaged, defective, counterfeit or refurbished. Lastly, most manufacturers will only honor a warranty if the seat was purchased from an authorized seller.
Many Bidets is proud to be an authorized dealer for all the seats we carry. You can rest assured that any electric seat purchased from us will come with a valid warranty. This means that the manufacturer is legally required to address any problems with your seat that fall within the warranty’s provisions and coverage.
Warranty Limitations and Exclusions
What voids a warranty? It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer but warranties typically won’t cover units bought from an unauthorized dealer and normal wear and tear. Warranties also won’t cover damage caused by improperly installing, using or maintaining the bidet, natural calamities, electrical surges, or foreign matter/sediment in the water supply.
Keep mind that you’ll usually have to pay a portion of shipping costs if you need to mail the bidet to the manufacturer for repairs. The good news is that many bidet repairs can be completed at home using parts and instructions supplied by the manufacturer. However, if you’d rather let the experts handle the repair from start to finish, you usually have the option of sending the seat to an approved repair center.
Which Bidet Seats Have the Best Warranties?
The Cascade 3000 automatically comes with a full 4-year warranty, which is one of the best warranties of any seat we sell. It covers the cost of repairing or replacing any part that is defective in material or workmanship under normal installation, use, or service for the entire 4-year period. At this time, the Cascade does not include an extended warranty option.
As with all warranties, there are some exclusions. For example, buying a Cascade 3000 from an unauthorized seller automatically voids the warranty, and the warranty doesn’t cover scratches or staining that occurs after you receive the seat. Additionally, if it becomes necessary to physically send the seat in for repairs, you are responsible for the cost of shipping it to the authorized service facility. Finally, the warranty is only extended to the original purchaser. A comprehensive summary of the Cascade’s warranty, including additional exclusions, can be found on page 22 of the Cascade 3000 Bidet Seat owner’s manual.
Besides its generous warranty, the Cascade 3000 comes with a wide range of bidet features that provide the perfect cleanse. These include front and rear wash modes with optional nozzle oscillation, an instant heating system that produces unlimited warm wash water, and adjustable water temperature, water pressure and nozzle position. The Cascade also offers the option of a one-button wash and dry utilizing the seat’s last used settings for extra convenience.
Additional highlights include a warm air dryer, heated seat, scentless deodorizer, and an LED nightlight that illuminates the bowl and surrounding area with a gentle blue glow for easier nighttime navigation. For your health and safety, the Cascade’s interior tubing and nozzles are coated with a silver nano-solution that keeps the water sanitary as it moves through the unit, and the stainless steel nozzles self-rinse before and after each use.
From a design standpoint, the Cascade 3000 doesn’t disappoint! Sleek, streamlined, and available in both round and elongated seat sizes, the Cascade is compatible with most one- and two-piece toilets, including many with a difficult-to-fit French Curve design.
While most bidet seat lids serve only as a cover for the bowl, the Cascade’s lid is strong enough to support 330 lbs. This makes it possible for a wide range of individuals to use it as a seat for personal grooming or caregiving tasks. Last but not least, the Cascade comes with two remote control options: a large, ADA compliant remote with raised, color coded buttons, or a small, slim remote with a display screen and flat buttons.
Bottom Line: With a ton of fantastic features and a generous standard warranty, the Cascade 3000 offers unbeatable convenience, comfort, and peace of mind.
Bio Bidet BB-2000
The Bio Bidet BB-2000 frequently appears on our recommendation lists because it offers a ton of top features at a fair price. Unsurprisingly, the BB-2000 is also a winner in the warranty department thanks to its generous 3-year full warranty that can be extended to a 6-year full warranty for just $99.
Bio Bidet’s full warranty covers 100% of cost for labor and parts. Do keep in mind that they don’t pay to remove, return or reinstall any of their bidet seats. Bio Bidet also states that their full warranties are non-transferrable, meaning they’re only valid for the seat’s original buyer. For complete warranty details, including exclusions, see Bio Bidet’s 3-year Full Warranty Statement.
You’re getting more than a solid warranty when you purchase a BB-2000. This luxury bidet seat comes with front and rear wash modes, plus an enema wash option that directs a high-powered stream of water into the rectum to loosen stool and stimulate a bowel movement. It also offers a child mode that uses softer settings designed for smaller, younger users.
Other great wash features include nozzle oscillation, massage (pulse) wash, and a powerful hybrid water heater that generates unlimited warm water with great temperature consistency. The heated seat option keeps your bum warm when its chilly, and the warm air dryer allows you to dry off without wiping for a hands-free experience start to finish.
As with all the seats recommended here, the BB-2000 has adjustable water temperature and pressure, nozzle position, seat temperature and air dryer temperature. Additionally, the BB-2000 has an LED nightlight, scentless air deodorizer, a generous 400-lb weight limit, and its nozzles can be easily replaced at home. It only fits elongated toilets and comes in a white color only, but the remote control is available in white or black.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for remote controlled seat with top tier features, an enema wash, and multiple full warranty options, the BB-2000 is a terrific seat to consider.
Bio Bidet BB-1700
The Bio Bidet BB-1700 is nearly identical to the BB-2000 in both features and warranty. The BB-1700’s 3-year full warranty can be upgraded to a 6-year warranty, and the conditions and limitations are the same as the BB-2000’s warranty.
The main differences between the two seats are that the BB-1700 has a control panel attached to the side of the seat whereas the BB-2000 has a wireless remote control. Some users prefer the convenience of the side arm control panel, and it can be a good option for anyone who might have difficulty holding a remote control due to surgery, medical conditions like arthritis, or other physical limitations. Plus, you don’t have to worry about replacing batteries like you do with a wireless remote control, and you’ll never misplace it since it’s fused to the side of the seat.
One downside is that the BB-1700 takes up more room side to side than a bidet seat without a control panel, and some consumers don’t like the bulkier look. Additionally, potential buyers who find it difficult to look down, have vision limitations that make reading from a 2-3 foot distance challenging, or want controls that can be operated with their feet are probably better off with a remote controlled seat like the BB-2000.
Another difference between the two seats is that the BB-1700’s water flow rate is nearly double that of the BB-2000. As a result, we feel the BB-1700’s enema wash option is a bit more powerful than the BB-2000’s. The BB-1700 is also around $50 cheaper.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a seat with an enema function, side arm control panel, and long-range warranty options, you’ll want to keep the Bio Bidet BB-1700 on your short list.
Brondell Swash 1400
When it comes to features, the Brondell Swash 1400 holds its own against the three seats listed above. It comes with a 3-year limited warranty that can be upgraded to 5 years of full coverage for $99. The standard limited warranty covers:
- 100% Coverage of all parts and labor for the entire product for the first year from original date of purchase
- 75% Coverage of all parts and labor for the entire product for the second year from original date of purchase
- 50% Coverage of all parts and labor for the entire product for the third year from original date of purchase
As with most warranties, the Swash 1400’s warranty is not transferrable to anyone besides the original purchaser. It won’t cover damage or loss due to shipping, power surges, sediment in the water source, natural disasters, normal wear and tear, or improper installation, removal, cleaning or repair. A complete summary of Brondell’s warranty policy can be found here.
The Swash 1400’s wash features include front and rear cleansing with unlimited warm water and nozzle oscillation. The spray wand offers unprecedented reach and precision thanks to seven front to back positions and three width options.
Additionally, the Swash 1400 has a heated seat and warm air dryer, both with adjustable temperature controls, as well as adjustable water pressure and temperature. An air deodorizer, LED nightlight, and one button wash and dry option round out the seat’s luxury convenience features.
Similar to the Cascade 3000, the Swash 1400’s lid is more than a cover; it’s strong enough to serve as a seat in the bathroom. Keep in mind that it has a 270 lb weight limit, whereas the Cascade 3000’s lid can support up to 330 lbs.
For maximum cleanliness, the Swash 1400 even offers a sanitizing system that releases small particles of silver into the water used to cleanse the stainless steel nozzles. Last but not least, the Swash 1400 is operated via a slim remote control, comes in round and elongated seat sizes, and is even available in both white and beige, making it easy to pair with just about any toilet.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for maximum nozzle adjustability, high end features, and a solid warranty, the Brondell Swash 1400 is a great choice.
Best Bidet Warranty on a Budget: Bio Bidet BB-800 Prestige
The BB-800 Prestige is simpler than the other Bio Bidet seats on this list, but it’s very affordable and offers some of the best warranty options for a seat in its price bracket. The BB-800 comes with a 3-year limited warranty that can be upgraded to a full 6-year warranty for $99. The BB-800’s standard 3-year limited warranty covers the following:
- 100% coverage of all parts and labor for the entire unit for one year following the original purchase date
- 75% coverage of all parts and labor for the entire unit for the second year following the original purchase date
- 50% coverage of all parts and labor for the entire unit for the third year following the original purchase date
The warranty applies only to the original purchaser, and Bio Bidet states that the owner is responsible for the cost of returning the seat to the service center if in-person repairs are required. Additional conditions can be found in the warranty statement, located on page 22 of the BB-800’s owner’s manual.
In terms of features, the BB-800 offers front and rear wash modes with pulse and oscillating nozzle options, a wide spray that increases cleansing coverage, and a turbo wash that’s similar to an enema wash but a bit less powerful. It also comes with a warm air dryer with adjustable temperature settings, plus an adjustable heated seat. Like the other Bio Bidet models mentioned above, its nozzles can easily be replaced at home.
The BB-800 comes in both round and elongated seat sizes, so it fits on most one and two-piece toilets, and its operated with a side arm control panel. It’s the only seat on this list with a tank water heater, which provides 30-60 seconds of warm water. Once the tank runs out of warm water, it takes 3-5 minutes to refill, and the seat uses cool water in the meantime.
Additionally, the BB-800 is the only seat on this list with plastic nozzles versus stainless steel. Plastic works just fine, though stainless steel is considered the gold standard due to its longevity and the ease with which it can be kept clean. On the plus side, however, these elements do contribute to the BB-800’s low price tag, which is a huge advantage if you’re working with a tighter budget.
Bottom Line: At the end of the day, the BB-800 may not be our most feature-packed seat, but it’s durable and provides quality bidet cleansing along with solid warranty options.
