Below we provide recommendations for a few seats that would benefit anyone experiencing arm weakness and associated mobility loss.

  • Adjustable water temperature, water pressure, seat temperature and nozzle position

  • Lower water flow rate than the Bio Bidet BB-2000 (below) - 0.185 gallons per minute

You might choose this seat if: 

  • You want to sit on the lid due to bathroom configuration, to complete personal hygiene tasks, or for any other reason

  • You would benefit from a larger remote with raised buttons due to visual or physical disabilities

  • Nozzle and seat hygiene is a top priority for you -- the Cascade 3000's interior tubing and nozzles are coated in a silver nano-solution that keep water sterile as it passes through the unit

  • The seat needs to fit on a round toilet seat or a toilet with a French curve design - the Cascade 3000 comes in both round and elongated seat sizes and will fit on many French curve toilets
  • You will likely rely on the one button wash and dry feature regularly -- the Cascade 3000's one button wash/dry option provides the longest cycle of any seat on the market for a comprehensive cleansing and drying experience

 

Why This is Our Top Pick

The Cascade 3000 provides a range of great features that increase comfort and convenience, all while enhancing bathroom independence. It's an especially great fit for individuals experiencing muscle weakness or limited range of motion thanks to its warm water wash options, quality warm air dryer, thorough one button wash and dry feature, and large remote with easy to press buttons.

Design Features

The Cascade 3000's sleek design makes it one of the most versatile bidet seats on the market. It is designed to fit on most one and two-piece toilets, including many with a difficult-to-fit French curve design, and it's available in both round and elongated seat sizes. While most most bidets come with lids that cannot safely support the weight of an adult, the Cascade 3000 comes with a sittable lid that can safely support up to 330 lbs. This is an especially great feature to have for anyone who's accustomed to sitting on the toilet lid for activities like getting dressed, performing personal hygiene tasks, or helping someone bathe.

Wash & Dry Features

The Cascade 3000 features an instant water heater that generates unlimited warm wash water, an oscillating wash option that soothes tender areas and helps increase wash coverage, and a built in warm air dryer that gets you dry without needing to wipe with toilet paper. For added convenience and ease of use, the Cascade 3000 comes with an auto wash mode that initiates a standard wash and dry cycle at the touch of a button, which is perfect for quick cleansing or for users who feel overwhelmed  navigating the remote. It's worth noting that the Cascade 3000 offers the longest auto wash/dry of any seat on the market, making it the best choice for thorough cleansing and drying at the touch of a button. The built-in LED nightlight illuminates the toilet bowl to make nighttime restroom trips safer and easier, and the automatic deodorizer gets rid of offensive bathroom odors. 

Remote & Controls

The Cascade 3000 comes with two remote options, so users can choose what suits their needs best: a large remote with easy-to-navigate, raised buttons that are helpful for visually impaired users or those who have difficulty with fine motor tasks, or a small remote with flat buttons and a display screen.

  Price: $699

(Contact us for better pricing) 

bb-2000-01.jpg bio-bidet-bb-2000-angle.jpg bb-2000-blackremotes.jpg

Pros: 

  • Seat supports up to 400 lbs

  • Enema Wash

  • High water flow rate - 0.32 gallons per minute

  • High quality, easy-to-replace stainless steel nozzles

  • Adjustable water temperature, water pressure, seat temperature and nozzle position

Cons:

  • Cannot sit on lid

  • No water sterilization system

  • Only one remote style/size available

  • Shorter one button wash than the Cascade 3000

  • Not available in round seat sizes (elongated only) 

You might choose this seat if: 

  • You're looking for luxury bidet features without paying premium prices

  • You have incontinence issues or would otherwise benefit from a higher water flow rate that ensures faster cleansing

  • You need a seat that is specifically designed to help alleviate constipation - the BB-2000's enema wash function is intended to help loosen stool and stimulate the bowels
  • You are looking for a seat with a pulsating spray option that quickly varies the water pressure for a soothing massage sensation

  • You want to be able to change the unit's nozzles out themselves should they become clogged or corroded versus sending the seat to Bio Bidet for servicing

  • You need a beige seat and/or want options for the remote color

Why This is Our Second Place Pick:

The BB-2000 is a great seat, offering a myriad of convenience features designed to meet a wide range of needs. With the BB-2000, you get a sleek and stylish unit that is equipped with an easy to use, wall-mountable remote featuring a screen and easy to press icon buttons.

Wash & Dry Features

The BB-2000 comes with some excellent wash and dry options that allows you to find what works best for your body and needs. This unit includes a high-quality, 3-in-1 stainless steel nozzle that performs three different wash cycles: feminine, posterior and enema. In addition to these washes, the BB-2000 provides soothing pulse wash and oscillating wash options. It is worth noting that although the BB-2000 does not have a dedicated wide spray function, its standard water stream is a bit wider than other seats on the market. Additionally, of the three seats recommended here, the BB-2000 has the highest water flow rate (0.32 gallons per minute). A high water flow rate is beneficial for achieving a faster, more effective cleanse and is an especially helpful option for anyone experiencing incontinence as it makes cleaning up after an accident quick and easy.

Another feature that lands the BB-2000 near the top of our list is its powerful enema wash. If you or anyone in your household deals with constipation, the enema wash is a must have feature. The BB-2000’s enema wash utilizes Bio Bidet’s patented vortex technology to spray a powerful, circular stream of water into the rectum. This helps loosen stool and stimulate bowel movements, thereby providing relief. The BB-2000’s massaging pulse wash, which sprays water in an alternating pressure pattern is another, gentler way to stimulate bowel movements.

Ease of use is key for anyone dealing with shoulder and rotator cuff issues. For added convenience, the BB-2000  includes a one button, automatic wash and dry cycle that simplifies the cleaning process. Along these same lines, it also comes with a warm air dryer that allows you to get dry without toilet paper, thereby reducing or eliminating your need to wipe from start to finish.

Remote & Controls

Bio Bidet’s BB-2000 comes with an intuitive wireless remote with easy-to-use icon buttons and a large display screen. It can be mounted on the wall for easy use or storage, though you can always slide the remote out of the mount for hand-held use if you desire.

  • No enema wash

  • Plastic nozzles (versus stainless steel or aluminum)

  • Nozzles cannot be replaced 
  • Lower water flow rate -- 0.11 gallons per minute

You might choose this seat if:

  • You are looking for the ultimate hands free bathroom experience and would like the high-tech auto open lid
  • You could benefit from the premisting feature to help keep the toilet bowl cleaner longer

  • Multiple people will be using the unit, so customizable user presets would be helpful (versus an automatic one-button wash and dry option that reverts the last used settings)

Why This Seat is Worth Mentioning

If you are looking for a completely hands free experience and like to keep up with the latest technology, you will love the high-tech experience that the TOTO S550e provides.

Much like the Cascade 3000 and BB-2000, the TOTO S550e Washlet is a high end, feature-packed seat that offers maximum comfort in the bathroom. You will love all the premium wash settings that the S550e comes with, including wide spray, pulse wash, oscillating wash and standard front and rear washing.

Additionally, the S550e Washlet includes a great premisting feature that automatically sprays the inside of the toilet bowl before each use. This prevents residue from sticking, which helps keep the toilet little cleaner and cuts down on the time you spend scrubbing it.

One of the S550e's coolest features is its automatically opening lid, which is a must-have option if you're looking for a completely hands free bathroom experience. Conveniently, the lid can be programmed to open as you enter the bathroom or by pressing the corresponding button on the remote.

If you like the S550e's features but happen to have a round toilet, you'll want to check out the TOTO S350e, which comes with all the same great options as the S550e but is built to fit a round style toilet.
