Toilet Fit Guide

FITTING A SWASH TO YOUR EXISTING TOILET

Measure the Bolt Hole Spread

Measure the distance between the bolt holes. The space must be between 5¼ inches and 8 inches. Measure the distance from the center of the bolt holes to the toilet tank to ensure proper clearance. There must be at least 1½ inches of clearance.*

Determine the Length of the Bowl

Measure the distance from the bolt holes to the front of the toilet bowl to determine if you have a round or elongated fixture.
If your measurement is 18" – 19½" order an Elongated Swash
If your measurement is 16" – 17¾" order a Round Swash. (note: CL825 is not available in a Round model)

Please note: some toilets may require an Alternative T-Valve and/or Top Mount Hardware. View the Installation tab for more information on these types of installation.


* Is the distance from the center of the bolt holes to the toilet tank less than 2 inches?
The Swash may extend slightly over the front edge of your toilet bowl.

Toilet Overhang

Measure the distance from the front of the toilet tank to the front of the toilet bowl.

If this measurement is less than 20½ inches, consider purchasing a Round size to reduce the amount the seat extends over the front edge, even if your fixture is elongated.
The overall length of the Round Swash is 19.4 inches. A distance less than 19.4 inches from the tank to the front of the toilet bowl will also cause overhang.

 

FITTING A SWASH TO A NEW TOILET

If you've decided you'd like to install the Brondell Swash on a new toilet, we recommend you find a toilet that matches your size, budget, design, performance, and height requirements. Once you find your toilet, use the toilet manufacturer’s spec sheet and the diagram below to calculate whether it is compatible. If the value of “D” is greater than 1-1/2 inches, the toilet is compatible with your Swash.

New Toilet Fit Guide

If you’re looking for inspiration for your new toilet, below is our “Best Of” list.  Please note, Brondell has not used any of these toilets and is not responsible for the performance of these toilets.  Brondell has no affiliation with the manufacturers listed below:

  • Best High End:  Toto Drake II Two-Piece toilet
  • Best High End Concealed Trap Away Toilet (Skirted):  Toto Legato One-Piece high-Efficiency*
  • Dual Flush High End:  Toto Connelly Close Coupled toilet, 1.28GPF & 0.9GPF
  • Dual Flush and Budget-Friendly: Glacier bay 1-piece High Efficiency Dual Flush Elongated Toilet in White
  • Wall-Hung:  Toto Maris (Because this toilet uses an In-Wall Tank System, your plumber will need to provide an accessible ½” water supply connection for the bidet)

 *you will need Alternative T-Valve and Top Mount Hardware for this installation

Swash 300/900/CL825/1000 Installation Video

The Swash high-tech bidet toilet seat installs directly onto your existing toilet. We designed the Swash to fit over 98% of residential toilets in the United States, allowing us to provide its amazing bidet benefits to nearly all American households. Best of all, just about anyone can install it, usually in under an hour!

Please note that this video depicts the Swash 300, 900, and 1000 bidet seats. All three models install the same way.

 


 

Electrical Requirements

Swash S300, S900, CL825, S1000, S1200, S1400, SE400, and SE600 Bidet Seats must be plugged into a standard GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt) outlet. The GFCI outlet is generally required in bathrooms, kitchens, and near sources of water. Swash and LumaWarm users typically need an outlet within three and a half feet of the toilet fixture; though running an extension cord is perfectly acceptable as well (see below). We recommend a minimum of 15 amps for the circuit for the Swash Bidet Seat.

NOTE: The Swash Ecoseat, PureSpa and FreshSpa bidet attachments, and CleanSpa bidet sprayers do not require an electrical outlet in the bathroom.

If you don't have a GFCI outlet in the bathroom, you can easily purchase an inexpensive GFCI adapter online at Amazon.com or at your local hardware store

Extension Cords
While we recommend installing a dedicated outlet near your toilet fixture, If you need to use an extension cord with an existing outlet, we suggest you use the shortest cord length available. The extension cord should only be a 3 prong heavy duty cord that can handle a 15-20 amp load with a gauge of 10-12. You may want to use a cord concealing kit.

 

Installing a New GFCI Outlet
An optimum outlet placement would be behind the toilet fixture on the right or left hand side depending on which product you purchase.

Plumbing Requirements

The Swash is compatible with over 98% of residential fixtures in the United States. All that is required to hook your Swash up to water is a toilet fixture with a tank. Wall-mounted toilets require a separate water connection to be added in the bathroom in order to provide water for the Swash.

The Swash includes everything that you need to plumb it into the water supply of your current toilet fixture. In the rare case that your water supply line is inflexible you will have to purchase a flexible water line to complete the installation. A t-valve (shown) provides the Swash with a continuous flow of clean water to use for washing.

Brondell Swash Advanced Bidet Seat FAQs

 


 

GENERAL INFO

What is a Swash?

A Swash is an advanced toilet seat that offers men, women, and children a fresh and hygienic cleansing using two retractable wash wands for posterior and feminine areas.

 

How does a Swash work?

The Swash replaces your existing toilet seat. Unlike traditional versions, it has a heated seat and delivers a warm-water wash with temperature, pressure, and nozzle position adjustability.  Two self-cleaning, retractable wands are used, one for the posterior wash and another for the feminine wash. All functions are easily operated at the push of a button with a wireless remote control. The Swash 1000 also includes a warm air dryer for a complete "hands-free" experience, as well as a deodorizer and other special features.

 

What are the differences between the Swash models?

A model comparison chart detailing the differences between models can be found HERE.

 

Where is the Swash manufactured and serviced?

The Swash is manufactured in Korea. All of Brondell’s products are serviced in San Francisco, CA, USA.

 

What is your Return and Warranty policy?

Our Warranty policy can be found HERE, and our Returns policy can be found HERE.

 

When will I receive my order?

  • Orders typically ship the next business day
  • US orders ship from our warehouse in Effingham, IL and typically ship via UPS Ground unless otherwise specified
  • Delivery times vary, but usually are between 1-6 business days depending on distance from the warehouse
  • Brondell ships orders directly from our warehouse in Toronto, ON to destinations within Canada

INSTALLATION AND FITMENT

Will the Swash bidet fit my toilet?

Toilet Fit information can be found HERE.

 

What installation is required?

Standard installation is quick and easy. It involves a few simple steps: shutting off the water valve at your toilet, removing your existing toilet seat, installing the Swash mounting bracket, and attaching the Swash to the bracket and connections. The included T-valve is installed directly below the toilet tank to direct filtered household water to the Swash. View the Swash Installation Video HERE.

 

I have a skirted toilet with no access to the tank or the toilet seat mounting bolts of my toilet. How do I install the Swash?

The Brondell Swash comes with all of the plumbing and mounting hardware necessary to install the bidet on a traditional toilet. However, many modern toilets have sleek designs intended to cover and camouflage plumbing connections, which makes a typical installation difficult or impossible. For this, we recommend using our alternative T-valve option, found HERE. The T-valve will connect at the shut-off valve at the wall instead of under the toilet tank. If your fixture also only has top-side access to the mounting bolts that hold the seat to the toilet, you will likely need top-mount hardware, found HERE.

 

What are the plumbing requirements of the Swash?

Plumbing Requirements can be found on the "INSTALLATION" tab on each product page.

 

Do I need an electrical outlet?

The Swash 1000 does require an electrical outlet, operating on a standard 120 volts AC. You will need a three-prong GFcI grounded outlet (e.g., outlet with an internal safety breaker, common in kitchens and bathrooms). If your outlet is more than three and a half feet from the toilet, you will need a grounded extension cord to operate your unit. For those customers interested in installing a new outlet specifically for the Swash, the optimum location when facing your toilet fixture is to the right side of the fixture underneath the toilet tank. For more information, see the "INSTALLATION" tab on each product page.

 

How much electricity does the bidet use?

The Swash 1000 uses 1200 watts when heating and spraying water. When not spraying water but the seat heater is on, power consumption is 60 watts. Additional information on Electrical Requirements can be found on the "INSTALLATION" tab on each product page.

 

How long is the power cord? What side of the bidet is the power cord on? 

On the Swash 1000, the power cord extends from the right side of the bidet when facing the toilet. The power cord for every Swash model is 3.5 feet long.

 

I don’t have electricity in my bathroom and don’t want to run an extension cord. What kind of bidet options do I have?

The Swash EcoSeat, Spa Series Bidet Attachments, and CleanSpa Bidet Sprayers do not need electricity to operate.

 

What are the interior hole dimensions of the bidet seat?

The interior hole of the elongated-size Swash is 11.5”L x 8”W. The interior hole of the round-size Swash is 10.75” x 8”.

 

Is your Swash compatible with seat elevators or toilet seat risers?

The Swash is compatible with some Carex brand risers, found HERE.

 

What colors are available for the Swash?

The Swash 1000 is available in white and biscuit. If you are looking to match your new Swash with an existing toilet, our color recommendations for American Standard, Kohler, and Toto toilets are as follows:

White

  • American Standard: White
  • Kohler: White
  • Toto: Between Colonial White and Cotton (not a perfect match)

Biscuit

  • American Standard: Linen
  • Kohler: Biscuit
  • Toto: Sedona Beige

USING YOUR SWASH

How do you operate the Swash?

The Swash 1000 is operated by a remote control which can be mounted on the wall or the side of the toilet.

 

Can a Swash be used by children, elderly, and handicapped?

Absolutely! Children love using a Swash, and they are wonderful for parents with children who are potty-trained but not yet able to clean themselves. Those who are elderly, or who have limited mobility or other limitations, can especially benefit from using the Swash.

 

Does the seat stay heated at all times?

The heated seat function of the Swash 1000 is controlled by the user. It can be set to one of three temperature settings, or simply turned off. The Swash also features an Eco Mode that turns the heated seat function to the low setting until the seat sensor is triggered by a user.

 

What is the duration of the wash?

Pressing the ‘REAR’ or ‘FRONT’ button on the remote control starts the 2-minute wash cycle. Pressing this button once again at any point in that cycle starts the 2-minute cycle from the beginning. The ‘STOP’ button will stop the cycle at any point.

 

How long does the warm water last?

The Swash 1000 uses an instant ceramic heating system that provides "endless" warm water washes.

 

What is the difference between the front and rear washes?

The front wash offers a feminine cleanse while the rear wash offers a posterior wash for both men and women.

 

Do the wands ever "get in the way"?

No, the wash wands are only extended during the cleaning cycle. At all other times they are housed inside the unit to avoid being contaminated. As a further safeguard, the wands clean themselves with a high-pressure spray of water before and after each use. The Swash 1400 also offers nozzle sterilization.

 

Is a Swash safe and reliable?

The Brondell Swash 1000 is ETL- and UPC-certified and comes with a three-year limited warranty.  With proper usage, Brondell products will provide years of reliable use. Owners should read and follow all safety precautions in the literature provided with the product.

 

What is the weight limit of the Swash?

The Swash Lid has a weight limit of 270 pounds. The seat part has a weight limit of 330 pounds.

SPECIAL FEATURES AND FUNCTIONS

What is the Silver Ion Sterilization feature on the Swash 1000?

The nozzle sterilization is located inside of the Brondell Swash 1000 and consists of ceramic balls that are covered in silver ion particles. When the nozzle sterilization button is pushed (when you are NOT using the Swash to clean yourself) the water is redirected through these balls, picks up these silver ions, and becomes charged. When that charged water flows over the stainless steel nozzles, the nozzles then become sterilized. Silver is a very powerful natural antibacterial agent that keeps the nozzles clean and corrosion-free for a longer nozzle life and provides the highest level of hygiene available.

 

How does the deodorizer work?

The deodorizer is a fan that pulls the air out of the toilet bowl through an activated charcoal filter. The filter does not add any additional fragrances; it just neutralizes the odors in the toilet bowl.

 

What is EcoMode?

Eco Mode only affects the seat heating part of the bidet. Ten minutes after the seat is no longer in use, the bidet senses no one is sitting on the bidet and will go to EcoMode. If the seat temperature is set to Medium or High, the seat temperature will drop to LOW. If the seat temperature is on LOW or OFF, there will be no change. Turning off Eco Mode will enable the seat to be on the MEDIUM (Pink) or HIGH (Red) temperature setting even when the user isn’t using the bidet and will be the desired temperature when the user sits down on the seat. Instructions for canceling Eco Mode can be found in the Special Operations section of the Owner’s Manual.

 

Why is it that when my child tries to use the bidet it doesn’t work?

You may have noticed that the bidet will not work unless someone is sitting on the seat. The sensors on the Brondell Swash seats are not weight sensors, but moisture sensors that know when they have made contact with skin. To use the bidet with kids, we recommend turning off this sensor. Instructions for canceling the Seat Sensor Lock Mode (or turning off the seat sensor) on your Swash can be found in the Special Operations section of the Owner's Manual. Alternatively, if you don't want to turn off the sensor, you might be able to have your kids hold their hand on the seat to trip the sensor. If you imagine the tank of your toilet is 12 noon, the sensor is at about 4 o'clock. If they hold their hand here, the bidet sensor will be activated and the bidet will operate.

MAINTENANCE

What maintenance is required?

Swash seats are made of germ-resistant plastic. They can be cleaned with a soft, wet cloth and a mild detergent. For complete cleaning, the Swash features a quick release from the mounting bracket. Although Swash wands are self-cleaning, Brondell recommends they be cleaned with a soft brush monthly or as needed. Brondell recommends that the removable mesh filter is cleaned on a regular basis as needed.

 

What are bidet filters? How often should they be replaced?

If your home uses hard water, well water, or softened water, we recommend using an external bidet filter. The bidet filter should be changed every six months. Installation and purchase information can be found HERE.

 


back to top

 

MEDICARE AND MEDICAID

Is the Swash covered by Medicare or Medicaid?

You may be able to get coverage particularly with the state-level Medicaid , but you should check with your doctor and/or insurance provider for more information. If you have a medical condition that a hygienic bidet toilet seat can help, then your doctor may be able to prescribe a Swash bidet for you and you may be eligible to receive insurance coverage for it.

Swash 1000 Bidet Seat is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 126.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the purchase I bought it because I wanted to just have a more cleaner feeling. Pros: I love the selection of water temp, spray pattern, pressure and nozzle position. I have found the dryer works but really need to wipe once with paper to get off the excess water. Seem quality built. Easy instalation Cons: It is costly but I get 8+ of problem free use then it's a great value. You feel cleaner. Installation was very simple with nothing more that a pair pliers or a small adjustable wrench. I'm very happy with the quality and build thus far and have no reason to think it will not perform for many years. If I get 8+ years out of it I would say it was a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without it! When we remodeled our bathroom, my husband (along with our contractor) suggested we purchase the Brondell Swash 1000 Bidet Seat. I told him he was crazy and he could put it in his bathroom--not mine! But I have been won over quickly and completely. The clean feeling and comfort that you receive from this appliance is fabulous. I am not elderly, but I would recommend this to anyone, especially those that have mobility and toiletry issues. All of the features work very well. Because it is more visible than a regular toilet seat, it does take away from my perfectly, picked-out-to-match toilet, but the experience is well-worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Ode for My Tush With my electrical in place; install a breeze. Now with the seat in position; I sit if you please. The seat warms my buns as I settle in, I comfortably rest as my business begins. With my movement complete, I anxiously deploy, a steady stream of water to my pleasure and joy. I’m now confident to know, my Tush will be free, of all unwanted fowl but consequential debris. With my task near its end; the drying begins And I ponder the review to neighbor and kin. My Brondell exceeds all expectations And I heartily recommend it with no hesitation If you are ready to buy the best in bidets Order yours now; you’ll have it in days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean and comfortable Just bought and installed my second Bidet seat. The first one went with the ex-wife and I finally decided to get another one. Of course, I wanted the top of the line with all the bells and whistles. I am tired of using toilet paper and the tushie wipes from the store. As with the first, it works like a charm, makes me feel good and less TP going down the drain. Installation was again a breeze, and this time I bought the filter since I do not have soft water now. Just had to add the electrical outlet which I tapped into on the other side of the wall. Great product, great sales price, and great warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Swash 1000 I first purchased the Swash 1000 a few years ago and absolutely loved it. I've just purchased my second. It's easy to install, well-made, easy to use and looks great! It's something I just don't want to live without. Visitors have loved it as well, after the initial embarrassment and instructions on how to use. It makes you feel so clean. I also like that it's an elevated seat especially now that I'm in my 60's. And also love the heated seat, slow close seat/lid, and oscillating feature. The one feature I find I don't use much is the dryer. But again, it's a product I have found I don't want to live without and the quality of my life has definitely improved with the Swash 1000!! Thanks Brondell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you need to go in style We've had this product for about a year and it works as well as the 1st day after installation. The installation was really simple, water supply via a tandem "T", power plug-in and seat install. Couldn't be simpler. Depending on how convenient access is to the water connection and a power plug - you should not need more than just time and evolved patience to install. The seat warmer is set to Mid Temp and so it the water pressure. The water cleaning option is so effective with an absolute feeling of 'clean' and actually being just that for both men or women, without a doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have had my bidet toilet seat forever it seems I bought it because I am very large with short arms and unable to see to my own hygiene.; I wanted to relieve my husband of this terrible job so I bought it hoping it would do the job. Boy, has it ever! I love this thing. It cleans immaculately and I have used it for a very long time. Everything is still operating beautifully. Thank you Brondell for such an instrument to alleviate my embarrasment and my husband's awful ordeal. I am so grateful for this equipment. Medically I wish there was a portable one that I could take with me when I go to the hospital. That would be wonderful and then I would not have to rely on others. That is a market, the hospital trade, that you might want to see about. Thank you again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swash 1000 is the GREATEST This is our 3rd Brondell, starting with the 600, then 800 and now a new Swash 1000, we're so impressed! Hubby has muscular dystrophy and not very flexible and it is of great benefit to him to stay independent and feel clean. I am 74 years old and it was easily installed, the faceplate was easier than the two previous models we had. We love the new smaller remote. You can control temp, pressure, movement with just a touch of the button. We like the stainless wands, they seem so much cleaner. Thank you Brondell for an excellent product, we'll never be without one.

Why if you have a water softener do you need a filter? What does soft water do to the bidet? When would you not need a water filter?

Asked by: Harold
A water softener indicates you have hard water to begin with. Even with a softener, scale may form potentially clogging the nozzles. A bidet water filter will help with this. You do not require a water filter unless your water is very hard or contains sediment, however a filter will help prolong the life of the bidet by ensuring the nozzles and internal hardware remain clean.

Can the seat temperature be turned off? Can the Swash be turned off completely if needed for extended vacation away?

Asked by: queeni1951
Yes! If you press the seat heat button until there is no light over the button (between red and blue) the seat heater is off. There is a power button on the left side of the bidet (right side if you're looking at it head on) that will turn the unit off without unplugging it.
