Detailed comparison of the Swash 1000 bidet seat vs the Brondell Swash 1400 bidet seat
When it’s said and done, the Swash 1400 is the hands down winner. All the feature upgrades to this one of a kind seat make it hard to beat regardless of the seat you’re comparing it to. We’ll go into these features in detail below.
Look and Feel Upgrades from Swash 1000
Designed with north american toilets in mind
Ever notice that bidet seats feel and look bulky once installed? One solution is to go the integrated toilet and bidet route (view some examples here). But if you want to stick with seats, the Brondell Swash 1400 bidet seat is about as streamlined as they come. Almost all bidet seats are made overseas, and designed as a one size fits all. Brondell took a different approach with the Swash 1400 bidet seat. If you are in north america, you are likely going to have a toilet with a slightly different style than found elsewhere in the world. Why isn’t there a bidet seat with these toilets in mind? I have good news… Now there is.
Hidden pocket that offers a discreet connection to power and water
Bidet seats have been around for a long time, but why do we have to deal with ugly cords sticking out all over the place just to enjoy the luxury of a bidet seat? If you’ve owned a Swash 1000 bidet seat, or practically any other bidet seat on the market for that matter, this is probably a question you’ve asked yourself at one point or another. Now, thanks to the folks at Brondell, you no longer have to see these ugly cords. The Swash 1400 has a pouch where these items connect, allowing them to remain out of sight and out of mind.
Cool Blue Nightlight
Most seats on the market today do not have nightlights, but you’ll find a few here and there that do. While most people do not see a nightlight as a deal breaker, it certainly is a nice enhancement to have. Studies show that soft blue light at night helps to encourage sleep when going back to bed v.s. Other colors, so maybe this is more important than we give it credit for? Looking at a unit that doesn’t have a night light? You might consider a toilet bowl night light. This night light does offers multiple fun colors to choose from, but since it’s an add on, it won’t be “invisible” like you’ll see on the Swash 1400 bidet seat.
Programmable user settings
Really the only “down side” of an extremely feature heavy bidet seat is the possibility of being overwhelmed by all the options. With this in mind, Brondell built the Swash 1400 bidet seat with 2 user presets. These user presets are simply marked and easy to set, making them perfect for those living with the elderly who might otherwise get confused.
One-touch auto mode
Want to run a wash and dry cycle with the press of one button? That’s exactly what you get with auto mode. Press, and relax, the Brondell Swash 1400 runs through a complete wash cycle followed by a complete dry cycle. Nothing else needed.
Replaceable active carbon deodorizer
Most seats with active carbon deodorizers design their deodorizers to last the life of the seat. Despite this, the deodorizer can sometimes start to lose effectiveness as time goes on. To help alleviate this concern, Brondell has equipped the Swash 1400 with a easy to remove deodorizer, just in case…
Dual, positionable stainless-steel nozzles with 7 positions
Yes, both the Swash 1000 and the Swash 1400 offer dual stainless steel nozzles, so why is this listed in the comparison? The Swash 1400 offers longer, further reaching nozzles than the Swash 1000, and gives the operator the ability to adjust the position of the nozzle with more precision than ever before. With a total of 7 different nozzle positions, the Swash 1400 bidet seat offers perfect nozzle placement every time.
Is no surprise that the Brondell Swash 1400 wins this comparison. Considering it’s the newest model, and it was designed as an upgrade to the Swash 1000, we really didn’t expect anything different. Till this model came along, the Swash 1000 was one of our top sellers. We fully expect the Swash 1400 to take it’s place as one of our top sellers.
