Detailed Comparison of the Bio Bidet USPA 6800 and Brondell Swash 1200 Bidet Seats

The Bio Bidet USPA 6800 and Brondell Swash 1200 are two seats that offer quality wash options and an array of convenient features for an affordable price. If you are looking to add the luxury of a bidet seat to your bathroom but are shopping on a budget, we invite you to check out the differences between these two bidet seat models to see if one of them may be right for you!

Design

The Bio Bidet USPA 6800 and Brondell Swash 1200 bidet seats are both crafted with quality materials to ensure a comfortable and convenient bathroom routine. These seats come in a clean white color and have a sleek, streamlined design for a modern look that will enhance any bathroom. For added versatility, the Swash 1200 and USPA 6800 are available for both round and elongated seat styles.

Sittable Lid

The sittable lid is a great convenience feature and a must have for anyone whose bathroom configuration requires sitting on the lid to help someone bathe or to trim toenails. Most people probably wouldn’t think twice about sitting upon their toilet lid, but this is not something that you should do on a bidet seat unless it comes equipped with this specific feature. Fortunately, there are some bidet seats on the market that offer a sittable lid and the Brondell Swash 1200 is one of them. If someone in your household has trouble getting around the bathroom, needs assistance in the tub, or simply likes to sit on the lid for painting or clipping toenails, a sittable lid is an option definitely worth considering.

Water Heater

The Bio Bidet USPA 6800 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 Brondell Swash 1200 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 wash cycle, or if you have a lot of people in your household that will be using the seat. 

Wash & Dry

Nozzles

Both the Bio Bidet USPA 6800 and Brondell Swash 1200 come equipped with dual style nozzles, which means one nozzle is dedicated to the front, feminine wash and the other is dedicated to the posterior wash. However, the Swash 1200 nozzles are made of stainless steel while the USPA 6800 nozzles are made of plastic. Stainless steel is typically a preferable and more hygienic material for bidet seat nozzles because is naturally repels germs and inhibits bacteria growth. That being said, both these models nozzles are self cleaning, adjust to numerous positions, and offer an oscillate option for an extra comfort during the wash cycle.

Water Flow

A  high water flow rate helps provide a more effective and faster wash. The Bio Bidet USPA 6800’s water flow rate is 0.26  gallons per minute and is more than twice as powerful as the Swash 1200, which features a wash flow of 0.11 gallons per minute. A higher water flow rate can be a great option for those who suffer from urinary and bowel incontinence since its extra-thorough cleaning is ideal after an accident.

Pulse Wash

When a pulse wash is activated, the water stream is sprayed in a hard and soft alternating pattern. This creates a soothing massage-like effect that helps stimulate bowel movements. The Bio Bidet USPA 6800 offers the the pulse wash option while the Brondell Swash 1200 does not.

Comfort & Convenience

Air Dryer

For users whose physical limitations make it difficult to wipe thoroughly, the air dryer could be one of the most important features a bidet seat offers.  Though this feature is sometimes not featured on entry to mid-level bidet seats, the Bio Bidet USPA 6800 does include this valuable function. Toilet paper can create a lot of issues and can even result in additional health concerns for those who have trouble using it. Thankfully, an air dryer on your bidet allows you to virtually eliminate irritating toilet paper from your bathroom routine. Not only is this a game changer those who struggle with dexterity, coordination and balance, but you will also be adopting more eco-friendly habits and saving money by buying less paper. Unfortunately, the Brondell Swash 1200 does not include an air dryer.

Deodorizer

Another nice feature sometimes not found on less expensive bidet seats is a deodorizer. The good news is that the Bio Bidet USPA 6800 comes with a deodorizer that uses a fan to pull air through an active carbon filter. The filter then absorbs and neutralizes any smelly odors, leaving your bathroom smelling fresh and eliminating embarrassment about unpleasant smells.

LED Night Light

If you or someone in your household makes frequent night time visits to the bathroom, a night light is a great feature to have. The Brondell Swash 1200 includes a convenient, integrated LED illumination feature that produces a soft glow so you can easily find your way around the bathroom without turning on a harsh light. The Bio Bidet USPA 6800 does not come with a nightlight but you can purchase and install an after-market nightlight if you wish.

Child Mode

For those who have children who could benefit from using a bidet seat, the Bio Bidet USPA 6800 comes with a child mode function. This feature provides a gentler wash that is more appropriate for a young person and can be easily programmed via the “kids” icon on the USPA 6800’s remote control. The Brondell Swash 1200 does not come with a child mode.

User Presets

This is 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 1200 comes equipped with this convenient feature and allows for you to set presets for up to two users.

Remote Controls

Both the Brondell Swash 1200 and Bio Bidet USPA 6800 comes with a standard size remotes that can be handheld or mounted to the wall. The USPA 6800 remote clearly presents its options via icon buttons and displays your chosen options on a screen. On the other hand, the Swash 1200 comes with a sleek and intuitive flat button style remote that illuminates your selected options.

Warranty Options

For the USPA 6800, Bio Bidet, offers a 3 year warranty that can be extended to 6 years of full coverage. On the other hand, Brondell includes a one year full warranty on the Swash 1200 that can be upgraded to 3 years. In general, the Bio Bidet company excels when it comes to additional coverage. If you like extra insurance for your purchases, Bio BIdet is a great company to work with.

Final Thoughts

With both of these seat providing so many different options, it can be difficult to choose which may be best for your household. Arguably, the most important and differing features between these seats are the sittable lid that the Brondell Swash 1200 offers and the air dryer that the Bio Bidet USPA 6800 includes. If you are looking to ditch toilet paper for comfort reasons, or if your health is compromised from being unable to properly wipe, a seat with an air dryer is a must have. Alternatively, if the air dryer is not necessary or important to you and you want the desirable sittable lid, the Swash 1200 could be a good option for you. Regardless of your needs and preferences, Brondell and Bio Bidet are two reputable companies known for producing wonderful, high quality units and you won't go wrong in purchasing from either of them.
