Fit and Compatibility Requirements
Our Swash bidets are compatible with most Standard toilets on the market, however, there are parameters that need to be met for a successful and compatible installation!
Fitting a Swash bidet toilet seat onto an existing toilet
How to measure for a Swash toilet seat
Measure the distance between the bolt holes. The space must be between 5-1/4 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.
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 Ecoseat
If your measurement is 16" – 17¾" order a Round Swash Ecoseat
Is the distance from the center of the bolt holes to the toilet tank less than 2 inches?
The Swash Ecoseat may extend slightly over the front edge of your toilet bowl.
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 bidet toilet seat to a new toilet
If you've decided you'd like to install the Brondell Swash Ecoseat 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.
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. You will need Alternative T-Valve and Top Mount Hardware for this installation.
- 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)
Standard installation is quick and easy. It involves a few simple steps:
- Shut off the water valve at your toilet
- Remove your existing toilet seat
- Install the Swash mounting bracket
- Attach 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.
A Phillips head or standard screwdriver may be needed to remove the existing toilet seat and a standard wrench may be needed for loosening tight water supply connections. However, we recommend hand-tightening the bidet connections to avoid damaging the product.
Teflon tape can be helpful in creating a watertight seal between plumbing connections to make sure your installation is leak free! Teflon tape can be found online or at your local hardware store.
All of our Swash Bidets will require access to a Standard ⅞” fill valve. A flexible braided supply line from your shut-off valve to the toilet will also be necessary as some homes have alternative plumbing (such as a rigid pipe).
Use only the provided installation hardware
Please contact us if you need alternate parts for your installation, we provide approved alternate hardware as needed. Substituting with unapproved or third-party parts will void your warranty, and Brondell will not be held liable for damages.
Alternative installation (for skirted toilets with no access to the tank or the toilet seat mounting bolts)
The Brondell Swash comes with all of the plumbing and mounting hardware necessary to install the bidet on a traditional toilet. Please contact Brondell Customer Support to see if your alternative installation is possible.
