BidetKing.com is proud to announce that it is adding Brondell’s new line of luxury bidet toilet seats to is inventory! Brondell is the American leader in electronic bidet seats and BidetKing.com is honored to help launch their fantastic new lineup of advanced bidet seats.
The Brondell Swash 1000 and Swash 900 are a leap forward for Brondell in terms of overall quality and craftsmanship. Manufactured in Korea by the top-notch Coway company, the Swash 1000 and Swash 900 feature tankless on-demand water heating systems, stainless steel nozzles for hygiene, a special wide spray function, and the industry’s only lid strong enough to sit on when closed. If you want top of the line, look no further than the Brondell Swash 1000.
Here at iHeartBidets.com, we’ve had the pleasure of testing a brand new Brondell Swash 1000 and to put it simply – we’re impressed. The wireless remote control feel great in the hand and attractive on the wall. The buttons are laid out in a logical manner and you never feel overloaded with functions. The wide spray action is unique to the new Brondell Swash lineup and provides for a more complete wash area.
A common complaint that we hear from customers is that they wish they could sit on the lid of their bidet seat when it is closed, like a normal toilet seat. Typically, this is NOT recommended for any bidet seat, but the Brondell Swash 1000 and Swash 900 have introduced the first product designed to do just that. The lid is contoured down, close to the seat and is strong enough to support the weight of an average adult. A very convenient feature that is often overlooked.
The wash functions on the Brondell Swash 1000 are smooth and quieter than your average bidet seat. The seat itself is very solid and you get the sense that you are sitting on a quality piece of technology.
If you’re the type of person that values quality and craftsmanship, do yourself a favor and try the Brondell Swash 1000. It is covered by Brondell’s 3 year limited warranty and is included in BidetKing.com’s 30 Day Risk-Free Trial program. You simply can’t lose.

Don’t believe us when we say that the rest of the world already loves toilet seat bidets?
Just ask Argentinian soccer legend Diego Maradona what he and his team would love to have in South Africa at this year’s World Cup.
“The manager of the High Performance Centre in Pretoria, Colin Stier, maintained that the request from Maradona had culminated in two whole bathrooms being changed.
“[Bidets] are quite common in Argentina but hard to get hold of here,” Stier said, according to The Daily Mail.
“In the end we managed to track down a seat which has bidet nozzles, but to make it fit we ended up having to replace the whole bathroom too.”
We love it.
But, hopefully you won’t have to replace your whole bathroom.

We get this question from our customers at least once a day, and so we thought we might as well post our answer here. In short, the Clean Sense dib-1500R. Both are both great quality bidet toilet seats that offer tremendous value over other ‘luxury’ brands that cost $1000+ . Below you will find an actual email question from one of our customers and our subsequent answer.
I am having trouble deciding which bidet toilet seat to purchase. I think I am between Clean Sense dib 1500R& Coco 6035R.
I think the tankless instant water heating feature would be good for us because this seat will be installed in a home we plan to retire in, so for now, it will only be used for periods of time, then unused for months.
The functions, enema, posterior& feminine are all wanted.
Please help me decide& explain other comparisoms between these 2 seats.
Thank you for your inquiry.
The two seats you have chosen, the Clean Sense dib-1500R and COCO 6035R are both great seats. In comparing the two, there are a couple of main differences:

Common questions that we get on a daily basis from our customers concern the use of water filters with bidet toilet seats – namely, what are they for and why do I need one?
Why would I need a water filter?
An analogy we like to use to help explain the concept of using a water filter for your electronic bidet seat is that of an oil change for an automobile. It’s easy preventative maintenance that can help prolong the life of your fancy new toilet seat bidet. The water filters used with bidet seats are “inline” water filters that are installed on the water supply line feeding the bidet. In simpler terms, it filters the water that goes into the bidet seat.
For the most part, yes, your tap water is clean enough for bidet seat use. The trouble is that over time, especially in areas with particularly ‘hard’ water, calcium deposits and other minute solids can build up inside the bidet seat’s water reservoir and nozzles – thereby reducing the spray pressure and/or clogging the nozzles. Tiny dirt, sand, and rust particles also have a chance of being passed through the water stream so it’s highly recommended by all bidet toilet seat manufacturers to use water filters.
How long do water filters last? How often should I replace them?
Water filters have a life span of 4-8 months depending on usage. As a rule of thumb, we recommend replacing them every 6 months.
Are they easy to install?
Very. Water filters are simply screwed on or off the water supply hose that feeds into your bidet seat. Installation takes a couple of minutes at the most.
I see many different types of water filters online, what are the differences?
Carbon – Carbon filters remove solids and chlorine from the water stream.
Sediment – Recent studies have shown that removing chlorine from the water stream actually allows for algae growth inside the bidet seat. Sediment filters are packed with a synthetic polyester that filters out solids, but allows chlorine to pass through. Available at BidetKing.com.
Iodine – Iodine filters remove solids and chlorine from the water stream while also adding trace amounts of iodine to provide sterilization.
Ion – Ion filters remove solids and add ions to the water stream to discourage bacteria and improve hygiene. Available at BidetKing.com.

Bidet Toilet Seat FAQ #2
If I buy a bidet toilet seat, will I still need toilet paper?
Although toilet seat bidets eliminate the need to wipe with toilet paper, it is not likely to completely eliminate the need for toilet paper for a number of reasons.
Washlet bidet seats can drastically reduce the amount of toilet paper your family consumes, but are unlikely to eliminate the need for TP completely. For folks suffering from limited mobility issues, bidet seats and their warm air dryers can offer a toilet paper / reach free solution. But for most, toilet paper is still used – just in smaller quantities.

We’re starting a new series of posts that feature Frequently Asked Questions about toilet seat bidets and the bidet seat industry. They are inspired by the many calls and emails we get on a daily basis about our electronic bidet seats and how they work. And without further ado…
#1 Do bidet toilet seats require electricity? What kind of electrical outlet?
Yes and no. Electronic bidet toilet seats like the Blooming NB-R1060 and COCO 6035R require a GFCI outlet of at least 15 amps. GFCI outlets are outlets specially designed for use in bathrooms and other areas where water contact is an issue.
There are also non-electric bidet seats that don’t require an electrical outlet, like the Bio Bidet BB-i3000. They are still able to provide many of the same hygienic benefits as their electronic counterparts, but aren’t capable of the luxury functions like heated seat /warm-air drying.
Zach Galifianakis guest starred in a hilarious new episode of Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Zach had a great performance, second only to our old friend: the bidet!
The bidet shown in the clip is the classic French style vertical spray bidet. The water stream is normally directed vertically (although sometimes horizontally) which requires the user to squat over the bidet. They’re antiquated and don’t offer the multitude of features that electronic toilet seat bidets provide, but are still great conversation pieces.
Check out the hilarity below:
In the world of bidet toilet seats, it’s not often that we come across a seat that surprises us. Most seats available on the market today have roughly the same features, same overall design, and are relatively on par with each other in terms of quality. About once every year or so we come across a bidet seat that makes us take a step back and say, “Hey, I think we got ourselves a good one here!” Last year, it was the Clean Sense dib line with its affordable inline water heater. The year before that, it was the COCO 6035R that wowed us with its overall aesthetics and continuous heating system. This year? It’s the Blooming NB-R1060.
First, a little background information on Blooming Bidet. The Blooming line of bidet toilet seats is produced by NCM Corporation in South Korea. Blooming has been selling their electronic bidet seats successfully in Japan for years. NCM Corp. is South Korea’s largest exporter of toilet seat bidets and has been manufacturing well known brands like Sanyo for the last 20 years. The quality of Blooming bidet seats rivals that of much more expensive Japanese brands (*achem* TOTO*achem*), but without the hefty price tag.
The previous line of Blooming bidet toilet seats, including the NB-520, NB-560, NB-570, and NB-R770, were great quality seats with a host of functions, but had 1 major flaw. They were kind of bulky in the rear and only fit 2 piece toilets. If you have a 2 piece toilet, great! Otherwise, you were a little SOL. Enter, the new Blooming NB-R1060.
The NB-R1060 bidet seat is such a great value because it takes all of Blooming’s wonderful features and quality and stuffs them into a beautiful, sleek package. It rivals the COCO bidet toilet seats in terms of aesthetics and is on par with INAX, TOTO, and Japanese brands in terms of top-notch quality materials and construction. It features a very small footprint like the COCO 6035R and also has a rounded back which allows it to be installed on most 1 piece toilets – including some models with those pesky french curves.
As with all of Blooming’s toilet seat bidets, the NB-R1060 features their trademark Aluminum Coated Nozzles and Luminous LED Night Light.
If we haven’t already said that the Blooming NB-R1060 has great quality – it does. The seat and lid are the strongest that we’ve seen on the market next to INAX. They have a great, heavy feel to them and don’t bend when you apply lots of pressure. We tested it by closing the seat and lid and sitting on it. At 180lbs, I didn’t feel any “give” whatsoever.
Functionally, the Blooming NB-R1060 performs as well as any other bidet seat on the market. The wireless remote also has a nice heavy feel to it and is easy to use. The only feature that truly stands out is its warm air dryer. Compared to other seats on the market, the NB-R1060 has one of the strongest warm air dryers that we’ve experienced. This is especially useful for folks with limited mobility or anyone wishing to rid themselves of toilet paper completely. Keep in mind – it will still take up to 1-2 minutes to be fully dried.
Negatives – In testing, we found two drawbacks that may deter some folks from owning this bidet seat. First, is the absence of an enema wash function. The enema function is useful for folks suffering from constipation, but the NB-R1060 only has the rear wash and feminine bidet functions. The second drawback is the lack of an inline heater / continuous heating system. Although Blooming has suggested that it will be implementing an inline heater for this model in the future, the current NB-R1060 uses a “tank-type” heater. This means that if you wash with warm water, the stream will begin turning cooler after 25-30 seconds of wash. For the 90% of people who only wash for 20 seconds or less, this is a non-issue. For others, it’s a deal breaker. Personally, we here at iHeartBidets don’t mind it at all. It simply signals to us that we’re clean =).
We love the Blooming NB-R1060 bidet toilet seat and think you will too. Scroll down for some real-life pictures of the model we used to test. Enjoy, and don’t forget to visit BidetKing.com for the best bidet deals on the internet!
Bidet toilet seats are a great way to cut down on toilet paper use. Instead of having to wipe several times with toilet paper, clean yourself with a warm aerated stream of fresh water. When you’re done, use a couple sheets to dab dry or activate the seat’s warm air dryer and enjoy the breeze.
Are all electronic bidet seats equally energy efficient? No – although all bidet seats will help you cut down on toilet paper use, they are not all created equally. For the most energy efficient solution, choose a bidet seat with an inline water heater rather than the conventional water tank. Electronic bidet seats with inline water heaters like the Clean Sense and Spaloo brands do not heat the water until you are using the wash. They draw a higher wattage while in use (1200-1300w), but are still much more energy efficient because they don’t constantly heat a tank of water. Also, no tank means that the warm water supply is basically endless.
