BrondellSwash300Here at WoWasis, we’re pretty well known for our bathroom plumbing product reviews, from Thai toilet hoses to heated, pulsating toilet seats from Asia. Geez, we’ve even shown you how to wash your butt on a 747 jet airplane! But we gotta tell ya: after installing the Brondell Swash 300 toilet seat at the WoWasis world headquarters, we just can’t keep visitors off the thing. They use the warm water jets even when they don’t have to use the toilet!

What makes the Brondell Swash 300 bidet seat elemental for every home is its affordability: it’s selling for under $300 USD, more than 50% less than similar seats by other manufacturers. It’s sturdy, easy to install, and a snap to use. It replaces your standard toilet seat in just a few minutes. All plumbing gadgetry is included. When you’re done, you simply plug it in to a grounded, three-prong electrical outlet. And you’re off to the races!

Here’s what you’ll love:

1) There two nozzles, one for “front,” the other for “rear.”
2) The water temperature and pressure are adjustable to three settings.
3) Nozzles are retractable and self-cleaning after each use.
4) Adjust the seat temperature if you’re in the cold season.
5) The lid doesn’t slam down, it floats down.
6) Warm water nozzles are triggered by someone sitting on the seat: no unwanted geysers here.

The product is made in Korea, with exceptional Korean craftsmanship. Installation instructions are simple to read. You’ll be able to do it yourself in an hour or less.

You can spend a whole lot more on heated bidet toilet seats, up to $1000 USD. But why should you? For the extra money, you’d get stainless steel nozzles and an air intake, which is advertised to remove smells. We don’t think either is worth the money. You could also spend less, perhaps $200 USD, but you wouldn’t get warm water. And you’ll love the warm water.

The remote includes instant controls for front or rear wash, water temperature and pressure, and seat temperature

The handy controls on the Swash 300 are mounted on a wireless remote device that you can attach to a wall (via magnet, double-sided tape, or screws), or you can use it hand-held. The bidet seat comes in two sizes, elongated (approximately 20 inches from lid screws to front of bowl) and round (approximately 18 inches).

This is truly a revolutionary product for the Americas, and has a real chance to move Americans away from the barbarity of toilet paper (you still use paper, but only to dry yourself). Its price point is right and it’s durable and easy to use. Once you use it, you’ll never want to go back to the old way of using the bathroom. The Swash 300 can be found in various hardware stores, but you can buy it now, without making a trip, at the WoWasis eStore.
