Vegan Health Brondell Swash 1000 Bidet -
"A Spring of JOY"
A vacation revelation gave rise to an everyday inspiration when we experienced a resort toilet with a toilet-seat bidet. We laughed our heads off when trying it out the first time, but could not deny the joy of posteriors that were "shower clean." So when we returned home, I started researching "toilet seat bidets" for our home and office.
How the Brondell Swash 1000 Bidet Works
The Cost Cost was a factor to consider along with the desire to have a warm water spray. The rental properties at which we live and work do not have access to the hot water lines without drilling through gorgeous built-in hardwood cabinetry. So I had to find a bidet system that fit on the toilet and included heating the water. After several hours of "googling," I found the affordable Bio Bidet BB-300. This served us for many years, but we decided to upgrade to a more deluxe model, the Brondell Swash 1000 Bidet.
The Fit The Brondell Swash 1000 comes in two sizes to fit a regular toilet shape or an elongated shape.

The MOVE/MASSAGE and Spray Buttons
The move/massage feature which moves the wash nozzles back and forth, extends the cleaning area to just where I want it. And the adjustable spray-width allows me to choose from a narrow, concentrated spray or a broader, softer spray and is available in three settings – wide, medium and narrow.
The BEST FEATURE of the Brondell Swash 1000
The Very BEST FEATURE of the Brondell Swash 1000 is the nozzle sterilization. A Silver Oxide Nano particle treatment, which has powerful anti-bacterial properties that sterilizes the nozzles before and after each use. This provides complete sanitation if used by family members or guests.
The air dry button on the Brondell Swash 1000 Remote provides four different settings and is rated as one of the better air dry features of other bidets.

A "Sit-Able" and Silent LID
Limited bathroom space caused me to be creative and use the toilet tank shelf as my makeup application area with lights and a magnifying mirror. Many toilet bidet systems state that the seats are too delicate to sit on, so I was delighted to learn that the Brondell Swash 1000 provides a “sit-able” lid. Other bidet seats have thinner lids which you can’t sit on, but Brondell provides the freedom to sit down on the lid of the Swash 1000.
Both the seat and lid close whisper soft as well, so I'll never worry about my grand-children slipping or slamming the seat or lid shut.
The heated seat on the Brondell Swash 1000 Bidet is WONDERFUL and I use it year-round.
A convenient air deodorizer filters the air from the toilet and helps remove any bathroom odor.
The Brondell Swash 1000 also has an Eco-power mode, which decreases energy consumption when not in use.
The Remote Control
Measuring 5.5 inches tall and 2 inches wide, the Brondell Swash 1000 is compact and easily fits in one hand and all the buttons are accessible with my thumb. This small remote provides access to all of the bidet seat’s functions.
A separate mounting bracket is included for wall-mounting to prevent misplacing the remote. Provided in the box is double-sided tape or mounting screws for making the mounting process easy. The Brondell Swash 1000 remote's back is magnetic and holds securely to metal. I have a towel rack that is metal and I keep it on the shelf leg between uses... sometimes I hold it other times I just press the wash button. Three AAA batteries are required to power the Brondell Swash 1000 Remote.
The unit comes with all the items needed and it's a breeze to install. This video demonstrates the ease of installing the Brondell Swash 1000 Bidet.
Toilet Paper Savings
We were surprised how much our toilet tissue usage has dropped. In fact we only use toilet tissue as a "checker" or "dryer" and NEVER for wiping!
Simply decide whether you have a round or elogated shaped toilet before buying. The Brondell Swash 1000 is easy to install and use, it's practical and it's an affordable luxury that ensures exceptional personal hygiene. Remember, the money saved on toilet paper pays for the investment.
