Brondell Swash 1000

Summary

Brondell’s S-1000 Swash 1000 Bidet Seat is one of the company’s more affordable models that still comes with a full suite of functions. Similar to many of Brondell’s other models, the Swash 1000 has a ceramic-core heating system that heats water immediately as soon as it passes through the washlet. Thus, there is essentially an unlimited supply of warm water available for cleansing purposes.

 

With regards to cleansing, this model has dual nozzles for front and rear washes, made with stainless steel that makes it more hygienic than plastic ones. A drying function blows warm air at different temperature settings for a comfortable drying. There is also a charcoal deodorizer that neutralizes any bad smells.

 

All functions can be controlled by a separate remote control on a magnetic docking holder. User settings can be programmed so the machine remembers your preferences. The seat can also be removed easily, thanks to patented Quick-Release technology.

The Good

  • The unit is priced moderately compared to other models on the market
  • Seat can be easily attached and removed for cleaning with the patented Quick-Release technology
  • Antibacterial properties on the seat keep the unit hygienic. The water nozzles can be cleaned and sterilized via a push of the button
  • Water heating technology ensures an endless supply of warm water available for cleansing
  • User has full control of cleansing settings: water temperature, water pressure, seat temperature, spray width
  • Air drying function comes with adjustable temperature
  • Comes with an air deodorizer to get rid of any unwanted odors
  • Adjustable nozzle positions provide a thorough cleanse without the user having to change position or posture
  • A separate remote control is provided, together with a magnetic docking station mounted on the wall
  • Available in two different colors

The Bad

  • The seat is made for elongated bowls, and may not be suitable for more traditional round bowls
  • The unit needs electricity to run, so an electrical socket located near the bowl is needed
  • The seat with the lid has a humped, slanted design, which may not be considered an elegant look

Bottom line

Brondell's SWASH 1000 Bidet Seat is a good choice for users who don’t have a large budget but would still like a smart toilet with all the necessary functions. With lots of adjustable settings, the user can easily program the seat to remember their preferences for a comfortable bathroom experience. The separate remote control is also a plus. However, most complaints from users are linked to the product’s durability. It seems that while the unit works well at first, a host of problems start to surface after a period of time. In addition, purchasing the product through a third-party shopping site led to warranty problems for some users, preventing them from getting a replacement for broken products.
