Detailed Comparison of the Bio Bidet BB-1000 Supreme and Brondell Swash 1400 Bidet Toilet Seats

The Bio Bidet BB-1000 and Brondell Swash 1400 are two top selling seats that both offer a variety of amazing features. In the following article, we go through the details and differences between these two popular bidet seat models for your consideration.  

Design

Sittable Lid

The sittable lid is a great convenience feature and a must have for those whose bathroom configuration may require them to sit upon the lid for certain activities like helping someone bathe. Most people probably wouldn’t think twice about sitting upon their toilet seat lid, but this is not something that you should do on a bidet seat unless it comes equipped with this specific feature. Bidet seats store their hardware in the back of the seat, which makes the lid unable to support the weight of an adult human. Fortunately, there are some bidet seats on the market that offer a sittable lid and the Swash 1400 is one of them. If someone in your household has trouble getting around the bathroom, need assistance in the tub, or someone simply likes to sit on the lid for painting or clipping toenails, a sittable lid is an option definitely worth considering.

Water Heater

The BB-1000 comes equipped with a tank style water heater that will produce about 60 seconds of warm water before needing to refill and reheat. It then takes around 3 to 5 minutes for the refilling process to take place. Alternatively, the Swash 1400 includes a more desirable instant water heater, which can supply you with unlimited warm water. This is nice option to have if you don’t want to worry about hurrying through your cleansing cycle, or if you have a lot of people in your household that will be using the seat.

Wash

Nozzles

The BB-1000 comes equipped with Bio Bidet’s patented, single, 3-1 nozzle that provides high quality front, rear and enema washes. This nozzle is made of plastic and easily replaceable if necessary. On the other hand, the Swash 1400 includes dual, stainless steel nozzles for its front and rear washes. Worth noting, the Swash nozzles are highly adjustable to seven different positions, that way you can further customize your wash experience and find what’s most comfortable for your body. The nozzles on both the Swash 1400 and BB-1000 are self cleaning and perform an oscillation feature.

It should be mentioned that stainless steel is a more preferable choice of material for a bidet seat nozzle due to its germ and bacteria resisting properties.

Water Flow

A high water flow rate is known to help provide a more effective and faster wash. The BB-1000’s water flow rate is 0.32  gallons per minute and is nearly three times as powerful as the Swash 1400’s rate of 0.11. A higher water flow rate can be a great option for those who suffer from urinary and bowel incontinence since it can help provide a thorough cleaning after an accident. It is also nice if you just want to get clean and on your way a little faster.

Enema Wash

If constipation is an issue for anyone in your household, the enema wash is a feature you will want on your bidet seat. The BB-1000 includes Bio Bidet’s patented enema wash that utilizes state-of-the-art vortex technology. The enema wash works by spraying a powerful, circular stream of water into the rectum, which effectively loosens stool and provides relief from constipation.

Wide spray

The wide spray feature is a nice wash option that provides more water coverage for your cleansing cycle, and can result in an overall faster and more thorough wash. While only the Swash 1400 provides this feature, the high water flow rate that the BB-1000 offers makes up for the lack of this feature.

Pulse Wash

The pulse wash is a feature in which the water stream pulsates to create a massaging effect. This can be beneficial for helping to stimulate bowel movements. The BB-1000 offers the the pulse wash option, while the Swash 1400 does not.

Other Details

One Button Wash & Dry

This convenient option is carried by the Swash 1400 and is ideal for those whom are not always comfortable with programming multiple settings and buttons. With this function, you can easily activate a basic wash and dry cycle at just the touch of a button. This has been known to be a helpful setting for those of a more elderly age looking for additional simplicity for their bathroom routine.

User Presets

User presets are an excellent option to have if you will be sharing your bidet seat with another household member. Through user presets, you have the ability to pre-program your favorite settings into the control panel so the bidet seat can perform your personal wash options without you having to reconfigure it with every use. The Swash 1400 comes equipped with this convenient feature and allows for you to set presets for up to two users.

LED Night Light

For those who often make night time visits to the bathroom, a night light is a great feature to have. The Swash 1400 includes a convenient, integrated LED illumination feature that produces a soft blue glow so you can easily find your way around the bathroom without turning on a harsh light.

Remote Controls

One thing that makes the BB-1000 so unique is it’s large panel style remote. This remote clearly displays easy to understand icon buttons that are simple to press, which makes this bidet seat a great choice for those with dexterity or coordination issues. Furthermore, this remote can be mounted to wall for accessibility. On the other hand, The Swash 1400 remote is smaller, but also very easy to operate and it’s buttons feature LED lights for showing your chosen options. The Swash remote can also be mounted to the wall for convenience.

Final Thoughts

Though this article, you can see that these seats each possess some unique options that the other doesn’t. With it’s large remote, the BB-1000 is a wonderful option for those with dexterity issues and is highly recommended for those of a more elderly age. Additionally, if constipation is an issue, the enema wash is a must have.

Alternatively, If a sittable lid is necessary for your bathroom due to its configuration or the general needs of your household, the Swash 1400 is an excellent option. Either way you go, both Bio Bidet BB-1000 and Brondell Swash 1400 are superbly crafted seats that will not disappoint.
