Bidet/washlet/advanced toilet seat questions
After these high tech undercarriage care devices were brought to my attention here on GardenWeb, I've about decided that we're going to give one a shot when we remodel our bathroom. I've been researching them and have a couple of questions that I'm hoping someone on here may be able to answer.
The two I'm looking at are the Brondell Swash 1000 and the Bio Bidet 1000.
1. I notice that the Swash lid is "sittable" while the BB doesn't mention this feature anywhere. In fact, I believe it mentions in the owner's manual that it's not meant for sitting on with the lid down. Does anyone own the BB that can tell me if it's truly not able to hold the weight of a person sitting on the lid? This cold be a deal breaker as the toilet is occasionally needed to function as a seat.
2. I believe you can control the deodorizer on the BB, but am not sure you can on the Swash. Can anyone with a Swash tell me if the fan is controllable at all or does it just run automatically. I'd like to be able to turn it off vs having to listen to it every time I sit down.
3. I saw on a comparison chart that the Swash has a nozzle sterilization (in addition to the self clean) - but don't see that the BB has anything but self clean. What does this sterilization amount too? The only think I can figure is that the water temp is cranked up and run through the cleansing cycle. Just curious.
4. Pressure. I've seen a few comments that the tankless seats don't have as much pressure. Is it still enough?
Anyone who can comment on the two in comparison, I'd love to hear what your thoughts are in general!
