Detailed Comparison of the Brondell Swash 1000 and TOTO S550e WASHLET Bidet Toilet Seats.

The Brondell Swash 1000 and TOTO S550e washlet are both designed with luxury in mind. Either seat will instantly upgrade your bathroom routine to a spa-like experience that can benefit everyone in the family. Below, we explain the specific differences between these two popular seat models so you can make an informed decision and choose the best product for your needs.


The TOTO S550e and Brondell Swash 1000 are both elegantly crafted with high quality materials. If you are looking for different design options, The TOTO S550e is available in two trim variations, classic and contemporary.  Additionally, the TOTO S550e comes in two color options, white and beige, to further match your style preferences. The Brondell Swash 1000 is only offered in one trim option, but is designed with a smooth, sleek style that will look great with any decor. The Swash 1000 is also available in white and biscuit (off-white).

If you happen to have a round toilet seat, the Brondell Swash 1000 is offered in a round option as well as elongated. The TOTO S550e is only available in elongated, though you can find the same features as the S550e in the TOTO S350e, which is specifically designed for round toilets.

Wash Features


The TOTO S550e comes equipped with a single plastic nozzle that performs a self sterilization process with an electrolyzed water solution called EWATER+. A single nozzle like this has two spouts, one for the front wash and one for the rear wash.  On the other hand, the Brondell Swash 1000 has 2 separate, stainless steel nozzles with one nozzle dedicated to the front wash and the other for the rear. The Swash nozzle also has a self-sterilization function that uses a silver-nano solution to destroy any bacteria or germs that might be lurking.

When it comes to nozzle materials, stainless steel is considered a superior and more hygienic choice of material for bidet seat nozzles due to its bacteria and germ resistant properties. Additionally, the nozzles on both bidet seat models are adjustable, oscillating, and self-cleaning.

Pulse Wash

Pulse washing is a nice feature that comes with the TOTO S550e. The pulse wash works by alternating between a hard pressure and soft pressure water stream. This creates a massaging and soothing effect that can bring extra comfort to sensitive areas. This wash option is also effective for stimulating bowel movements.

Comfort & Convenience


Unique to the S550e is the PREMIST function. The PREMIST sprays the inside of the toilet bowl with water, ensuring that nothing sticks to the toilet during use. This helps keep the inside of your bowl residue free and cuts down on the time you spend cleaning.

Sittable Lid

Sitting on a toilet lid is something we often take for granted, but this is actually a rare feature to find on a bidet seat due to the advanced hardware that is stored within the seat. If you often rely on sitting on top of your toilet lid for clipping or painting toenails, you will appreciate the sturdy sittable lid that comes on the Brondell Swash 1000. Holding up to 270 lbs, the Swash 1000’s lid definitely adds versatility and convenience to your bathroom.

Auto Opening Lid

While the TOTO S550e does not come with a sittable lid like the Brondell Swash 1000, it does have its own unique feature,  a lid that automatically opens. If you like to keep up with the latest technology, you will love having a lid that opens all by itself when you approach the toilet. This impressive feature can also be controlled by the remote and definitely gives your bathroom a cool, futuristic vibe.

Night Light

A night light is a great feature to have, particularly if someone in your home makes frequent nighttime visits to the bathroom. The TOTO S550e comes with a convenient LED night light feature that provides a soft illumination that is much nicer than being blinded by an overhead light or stumbling around the bathroom in the dark.

User Presets

The user preset function is very convenient for those who will be sharing the bidet seat with another household member. This function allows you to pre-program the desired wash settings for two different users without having to reconfigure the seat options each time. Out of these two seat models, the TOTO S550e is the only one that offers the user preset function.

Remote Options

The Brondell Swash 1000 comes with a wireless, push button remote that uses an illumination feature to clearly show chosen settings. On the other hand, the TOTO S550e comes with a very modern and sleek, dual sided remote. The front side of the TOTO remote also lights up to show your options and the backside features additional buttons and a screen.

Both remotes are intuitive, easy to use and mount to the wall for additional convenience and accessibility.


If you like to insure your purchases with extended warranty coverage, you will appreciate Brondell’s 3 year limited warranty that is upgradable to a 5 year full warranty for the Swash 1000. In contrast, TOTO only offers a 1 year full warranty for the S550e with no option to upgrade.

Final Thoughts

If you prefer a sittable lid and the dual nozzle design, the Brondell Swash 1000 would be the way to go. Alternatively, if you prefer options like a nightlight, user presets and an automatically opening lid, you will love the TOTO S550e. Regardless of your choice, both of these bidet seats are high quality that will change your bathroom routine for the better.
