Brondell S700-RW Swash 700 Luxury Toilet Seat Round, White by Brondell
Just Love It !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
E. Evangelista from Ca. USA - 5 out of 5.Just like the men who reviewed Bidet's, I was skeptical and researched this item Brondell S700-EW Swash 700 Luxury Toilet Seat Elongated, White
until I blue in the face. Installation was okay for me since I'm a bit handy. I installed a receptacle in the master bathroom after I researched the power requirement. Upon receiving the item, it took about half an hour to install and set up. Yes, I tried it just in case the wife had questions. To be honest, I was very impressed and would love to buy another one and maybe without the remote. I gave this to my wife for her birthday and her initial comment was, "is it for me or for you". Needless to say she loves it and have let our two daughters to try it and they also love it.

Richard Ballinger from Rensselaerville,NY - 1 out of 5.The brondell is very good but it doesn't always deliver on its promise. The hot water heater breaks
and the pulsator does not function. Beware most reviews are written shortly after delivery, when the machine is new. I am reviewing this after five months of use.
Amazon is great and makes returning an item very easy.

Johnny K from Buffalo, NY - 2 out of 5.Ever see a slew of glowing, gushing, reviews and thought, "wow, the writing is so similar amongst all these reviewers!"
Then you click on their names, and just about all of them have only reviewed either this product, or some other Brondell toilet seat?
Bigtime shill reviews. Beware!

clean bottom to bottom
Louise Cotter from New River, Arizona - 5 out of 5.Ever since visiting Japan where all the toilets have "bidet" type seats we have been searching for one for our bathroom. After much research online and in local stores we selected the Brondell S700. It has all the features that we wanted including the remote to mount on the wall. My husband installed it himself without too much difficulty. It has been in use for a month now and we are impressed with it's comfort and practicality. If we ever move this thing is going with us.

You will love it!
J. Butera from Roseville, CA United States - 5 out of 5.We just installed this 3 months ago and it truly is wonderful. Before I bought it, I read the other reviews about the heated seat and was surprised but in the middle of the night, in the winter, it's pretty comforting!
To install the electrical outlet in the bathroom cubicle our handyman pulled a wire down from the light switch which was probably an easier approach than going in the attic and running a new wire down. It seems to work just fine.
Before taking a trip, we unplug it. I called the company and they said that is a good idea.
It's truly a nice luxury!

Works very well but remote placement limited
Anil - 4 out of 5.Works very well and is well designed. The only issue I faced was that the remote only works for me when mounted near to the IR receiver on the unit. It did not work from any other location on the bathroom wall.

THE BRONDELL SWASH 700 ROCKS!
DEB from SAN FRANCISCO CA USA - 5 out of 5.After visiting Tokyo last year, I fell in love with the Asian style bidet systems. I never knew how to hop onto the Europoean bidets. The Asian style just makes so much more sense! And takes up a lot less space!!!
After having to wait to install an electrical outlet for my Brondell Swash 700, it was up and running in November, 2007. Now after almost 6 months, it works like a charm. During the winter months, it was a nice surprise to sit on the heated seat during the middle of the night.
My husband and I are extremely pleased with the Brondell Swash 700 and highly recommend it.

A woman's point of view
Eva Allison Frank from San Francisco - 5 out of 5.I noticed that all the reviews for this product are from men. Well let me tell you a woman's point of view. I am 9 months pregnant with my first child and all my friends had me paranoid about getting horrible hemorrhoids before and after pregnancy (something no one talks about until after you get pregnant). My husband bought a Swash for me and I am addicted! Not only have I not had one problem throughout my pregnancy, I don't think I can ever go back to a seat that is not heated - and I never expected that to be such a bonus. I have since convinced five of my girlfriends who are pregnant to install a Swash, and everyone thanks me. So pregnant ladies out there, get a Swash, or kind, caring, loving husbands of pregnant women, buy one immediately, your wives will LOVE you!

K. Stonelake from Portland, OR - 5 out of 5.I rarely come across an item that makes me wonder how I got along before, but the Swash is definitely one of those rare products. You'll quickly get past the first-time user surprise of "hey, oh.... OK, now that's a little different!" and the thought of going back to dry toilet paper after experiencing Brondell's warm water treatment will become laughable.
Installing the Swash was pretty easy, and I had zero prior "plumbing" experience. If the connection hose from your wall to your toilet is flexible hose (luckily mine was), the whole install should be problem free, but if it's metal pipe, that could require significantly more effort to connect that water supply to the Swash.
The primary feature of the Swash is of course the warm-water bidet, but the heated seat is VERY nice on cold nights and the slow-close lid/seat feature is handy, especially if you too have a toddler who thinks that trying to slam doors and lids of all types is great fun.
The Swash is a bit expensive, but the value you'll get out of it everyday makes the price seem more than fair. When the one bathroom in my house with a Swash suddenly became the bathroom that everyone in the family wanted to use, I didn't hesitate to buy a second Swash to keep the peace.

A Much Better Way to Go
T. Lappin - 5 out of 5.This is a fantastic product. Yes, it's a little strange at first -- unless you've spent any time in Japan, where these kinds of "washlet" seats are very common. Put simply, this is a much cleaner, much more sanitary, and much more convenient way to take care of your business
The Brondell is very well made. Installation is simple -- it took me about 30 minutes to install myself. The water supply comes from the plumbing already installed in your toilet, and you just plug the cord into a wall outlet. (HINT: If you're doing a bathroom remodel, ask your electrician to install an outlet behind the toilet, about 9 inches above the floor.)
The remote control unit mounts on the wall, and it works very well via an infrared signal. The seat is heated, which is a GREAT feature. The water jets do a very thorough job, they maintain a steady supply of warm water, and they are self-cleaning, which is very nice. Overall, the Brondell is a joy, and it requires almost no maintenance. My only complaint is the visual appearance of the unit. I's not bad, but I wish it had a bit more design flair.
We installed the Brondell in our ground-floor bathroom -- the one that guests use when they visit our home. It's been VERY interesting to see how people react to it. Women in particular are big fans of the heated seat. Some people seem to be a little nervous about trying the washlet feature for the first time, but once they do, most seem to like it. Personally, I've become a huge convert. Once you get used to it, you'll never want to use a plain old toilet again. This is a much, much more civilized way to, um, go.

J. Wells from San Diego, CA - 5 out of 5.The Swash is great. I'll never go back. At first, I was a bit embarrassed to admit how much I liked it. ;) But I can't believe that I've lived so long without one. Next time you use the restroom, think about washing your hands by rubbing dry paper over them... doesn't make much sense. If cleaning your hands with warm water makes sense, then it should be obvious to use warm water for the business end. Happy Swashing!

A great experience!
J. Burroughs - 5 out of 5.I never thought I'd want to spend this much on a toilet seat, but oh was it worth it!
My order arrived on time and in an easy to manage package. My neighbor, thank heavens for that man, helped me install the seat. It was easier to install than I expected.
The only downside really is aesthetic since you can't really put a seat cover on it.
Now I will never have a cold toilet seat again!
