When it comes to picking out a seat for larger individuals, there are a few things to keep in mind.  The weight limit of the seat, if the seat has a wireless remote or side control, and how comfortable the seat is for larger individuals.  Note that all electric Bio Bidet seats support 400 pounds.

 

Our recommended seats large operators

 

Top Pick: Bio Bidet DIB-850

Price: $699

(Contact us for better Pricing)

Pros:

Cons:

You Might Choose This Seat If:

  • Supports 400 pounds, and tested up to 500 pounds
  • Most comfortable seat on the market for those over 300 pounds
  • Unlimited warm water
  • You like the idea of unlimited warm water
  • You want the most comfortable seat on the market

Why the Bio Bidet DIB-850 is our top pick:

This one of a kind seat supports a weight limit that most others do not, it's comfortable and provides unlimited warm water.  The wireless remote allows for easy access to the controls and can be mounted to any wall desired.

 

Second Place Pick: Bio Bidet BB-1000

Price: $499

(Contact us for better Pricing)

Pros:

 Cons:

 You Might Choose This Seat If:

  • Great water flow
  • Also supports 400 pounds and tested up to 500 pounds
 
  • Limited warm water (approx 1 min to 1.5 mins)
  • Not quite as comfortable as the DIB-850 for individuals over 300 pounds
 
  • Better water flow is more important to you then unlimited warm water
  • You're looking for a more affordable bidet

Why the Bio Bidet BB-1000 is our second place pick:

The BB-1000 looses out on first place for two main reasons.  First the seat not being as comfortable for larger operators, and secondly the limited warm water.  That being said, many customers find that the amount of warm water is enough to get the job done, and the higher water flow offers a great clean!

Third Place Pick: Kohler Novita BH-90/93

Price: $629

(Contact us for better Pricing)

Pros:

 Cons:

 You Might Choose This Seat If:

  • Great water flow (better the DIB-850)
  • Supports 350 pounds
  • Similar comfort level to DIB-850 for larger individuals
  • Unlimited warm water
  • Lots of bells and whistles
  • Only supports 350 pounds
  • Lower water flow then BB-1000
  • You're under 350 pounds
  • You want good water flow
  • You like the idea of unlimited warm water

Why the Kohler Novita BH-90 is our third place pick:

 The main area this seat falls short is the weight limit, only supporting 350.  This is it's only real weakness.  If you're under the threshold of 350 pounds, this seat is a great option!
