It's the belief of Bio Bidet, an Algonquin, Illinois, corporation with a particular interest in toilets, that the reason bidets have never caught on in America is that we don't have enough space in the bathroom. With a sink, toilet and bathtub already squeezed into what's usually a rather small room, there's just not enough expensive real estate, not to mention expensive plumbing, for a unit many people tend to see as superfluous to their everyday needs, assuming they're aware bidets exist at all.
Bio Bidet's solution is simple but elegant. Why have a separate unit for washing what the company delicately refers to as the "ano-genital region" when you can simply replace the toilet's existing seat with an automated bidet that shares space and plumbing with its big brother? The Biobidet Bliss BB-2000 electric toilet seat, which uses their exclusive inside-out cleaning technology to perform "a vast selection of cleaning methods," has a nozzle that's self-cleaning through Hydro-Flush technology. ("Hydro-Flush" simply means "water flush," which seems a bit redundant, but it's what Bio Bidet calls it.) You can even infuse bubbles into the cleaning stream for a fizzy experience in the intimate regions. Frankly, the BB-2000 sounds like it might be fun to use, which may explain the "Bliss" part of this model's name. If you decide to use it for more than just bathroom functions, who's going to know?
Although their explanation as to the necessity for the toilet-bidet combination is convincing, Bio Bidet didn't originate the concept. That honor falls to Japanese toilet-manufacturer Toto, which released its first "washlet" -- a combined toilet and bidet -- in 1980, which is why such bathroom hygiene combos were big in Asia long before they found their way west. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket and want to buy one of Toto's full toilet-bidet extravaganzas, check out the Toto Neorest 700H.
Came with all the appropriate parts...it sprays warm water on your butt as it is supposed to. So, the core functionality seems to be pretty decent.
Does a whole lot more than simply cleaning and drying your nether regions. It allows people suffering from constipation to give themselves warm or cold water enemas.
Worked as advertised and without any glitches. It was easy to the average homeowner to install and the instruction manuals are well done.
Bracket never tightens up completely...seat is sturdy, and holds my weight without issue. However, it just feels light...doesn't feel as solid as I had expected.
I was able to get it done in no time. I love the simple yet efficient features this model offers. I love the feeling of being clean and fresh too.
It works great. I really enjoy feeling so clean. My toilet paper expense will probably be reduced by 90%. The remote is super easy to use.
Love having the remote vs. controls on a toilet seat...the pictures on the remote were self explanatory. Looking forward to a heated seat this winter!
