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.
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?
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. Please note this model is only available in the Elongated size.
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 CL825 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 CL825 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 CL825, 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?
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.
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 CL825 is only available in white. 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:
- American Standard: White
- Kohler: White
- Toto: Between Colonial White and Cotton (not a perfect match)
USING YOUR SWASH
How do you operate the Swash?
The Swash CL825 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 CL825 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 CL825 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.
Is a Swash safe and reliable?
The Brondell Swash CL825 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 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.
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.
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 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. The Swash CL825-EW installs the exact same way.
Swash 300, 900, 1000, and CL825 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
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.

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.

Reviews & Questions
Reviews & QuestionsSwash CL825 Bidet Seat is rated out of 5 by 2.Rated 5 out of 5 by Steven G from Has the features I need... This is our second Brondell (both of which I purchased from Costco) and both have worked perfectly from day 1 to the present. Installation was easy as pie. The 825 has endless heated water, oscillating spray and a clean, pleasing design. It does not have a dryer/blower but this feature has never been of much value to me. I have had other brand seats with a dryer and it simply takes too long to use regularly. This is the perfect feature set for me.Date published: 2018-01-13Rated 4 out of 5 by Pumpkinhead from Interesting contraption! Works so far pretty well. Do not overtighten the hoses, you may cause a leak and have to take apart and re tighten.Date published: 2016-12-25
