What’s the Bidet Price?
As you look at each of these seats, you’ll see that there is quite a price difference between our least and most expensive seats. How much are you looking to spend? Often it’s a balancing act trying to decide between features vs. price
How are the Bidet Controls set up?
For some people this may be a big deal. For others, it might not be as big of a deal. There are a variety of things to think about when deciding what controls you’d like. Side panel controls are often connected to the bidet seat. These seats tend to be cheaper, and many have a comparable version that also offers a wireless remote for a little more. Wireless remotes are not all created equal either. Some wireless remotes only have buttons, others have led screens. Again, it’s up to you to choose your preference. There’s no right or wrong.
What Water Pressure Settings does the Bidet Have?
Most bidet seats allow you to set the water pressure to your liking, but you may see some that do not. There are even some non-electric seats that offer water pressure adjustments. Just one more thing to think about
What Water Heating Settings does the Bidet Have?
Many bidet seats offer a water heater, some are tank-less, and others have a hot water tank. The tank-less water heating seats often advertise unlimited hot water, since they heat the water as you use it. Many of the seats with heated water systems also give you controls to adjust the temperature of the water.
This is a fairly important topic, check out our breakdown of bidet water heating systems here: Bidet Seat Water Heating Methods (opens in a new window)
Does the Bidet have a Heated Seat?
Getting a bidet with a heated seat is another item to consider. Often these also have options to adjust the temperature of the seat to your liking.
Does the Bidet have a Air Dryer?
Having a bidet seat with an air dryer built in is always a plus. It allows you to have a completely hands free experience. Some of these air dryers simply blow air, others heat it. Most people find that the air dryers that heat the air first do a better job of drying overall. Heated air dryers also often have temperature controls.
What Open and Close Functions does the Bidet have?
Many bidet seats on the market have soft close lids. A few of them have a feature where they automatically open when you walk up to them and close when you leave. A great feature, but really only available on the more expensive seats
Does the Bidet have a Deodorizer?
As we all know, using the restroom can be a stinky process. Some of our seats have deodorizers to help lessen the odor. Not a necessity, but a nice feature for sure.
What Cleaning Options does the Bidet have?
Most bidet seats have multiple cleaning options. Common cleaning options are; posterior, feminine, massage and enema. Some seats will have other specialty cleaning methods, but these are the most common. Make sure to look at what cleaning methods the seat you’re looking at purchasing has available.
What’s the Nozzle Quality on the Bidet?
Different bidet seat nozzles are made out of different materials. They vary from hard plastic, to stainless steel, and everything in between. This is just one more thing to think about.
Does the Bidet have Self-Cleaning?
Many seats have self-cleaning nozzles, which will clean themselves after every use. This is a very handy feature that many bidet seats offer, and one I’d highly recommend for any bidet seat you purchase.
Does the Bidet have a Quick Release?
The quick release feature is offered by quite a few bidet seats. This feature allows you to quickly disconnect the seat for easy cleaning. It’s a very handy feature, but not a necessity for most people.
Does the Bidet have a Safety Sensor?
Safety sensors are very common in bidet seats. This feature senses when someone is sitting on the seat vs. when the seat is unoccupied. This way, if you have to quickly get up for any reason, the bidet functions will stop instead of spraying water everywhere.
Can you save your Personalized Settings on the Bidet?
With all these settings, you might have only a couple combinations that you really like. Some seats give you the ability to save these settings so that they are accessible at the click of a button.
Does the Bidet offer a Warranty?
Different brands have different warranties. This is just one more thing to consider.
