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 bidet seat installation videos HERE.
Only use 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.
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?
Swash electronic bidet toilet seats do 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?
Electricity consumption may vary by model. For example, the Swash 1400 uses 1200 watts when heating and spraying water. When not spraying water but with 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?
Power cord placement may vary by model. For example, on the Swash 1400, the power cord extends from the left 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. 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.
