"Swash" is a great name for an automated bidet toilet seat. It combines the word "wash" (which is what it does to your private parts) with the sound a toilet makes when you flush it. (Onomatopoeia-wise, that sound could also be written as "swoosh," but that would make a lousy name for a toilet seat and it's already the name of the Nike symbol.) The Brondell Swash 1400 uses "nanotechnology" to sterilize its dual nozzles. Nanotechnology is usually tech-talk for artificially constructed molecules that are doing something useful, but whether the nozzles mix those molecules into their stainless steel construction or the molecules are actually doing the scrubbing isn't clear. Those dual nozzles can be positioned in seven different directions, so they should easily handle people of both sexes with a wide variation in width between their body parts or even just allow one person to determine with precision exactly where they feel they need to be cleaned.
The ceramic core heating system warms up water fast enough that there shouldn't be any danger that you'll get splashed with an unexpected spray of icy, aerated liquid. The seat closes slowly, so there won't be any slams in the night, and has a blue glow inside, so you don't need to turn on the bathroom light to find it. The water pressure, temperature and spray width can all be adjusted using the "intuitive" remote control. The unit comes with a warm air dryer, which supposedly removes the need for toilet paper, and a deodorizer that cleans the air in the bowl with a carbon filter, so you'll leave the bathroom smelling at least as fresh as it was when you went in.
Brondell claims that the Swash 1400 is so easy to install that you won't even need a plumber, which given the rates most plumbers charge is good news for consumers. Brondell toilet seats do well with Amazon reviewers, with the 1400 garnering an average of 4.5 stars per review. The price isn't low, but for an even higher-priced automated toilet seat, see the Toto S350E. Other robotic bidets to check out include the Duravit Sensowash Starck C and the Biobidet A7 Aura.
We really like our new Swash bidet system. Installation was very, very simple and took less than 20 minutes. It's worth the investment.
Just installed and I'm loving the night light! My husband loves the blue light and I can tell the front female spray is more effective.
