Operating Your Swash
Each Swash model is designed with its own unique feature set and operates according to the specs of those capabilities. Some models feature adjustable heated seats, wash width and temperature controls, pressure settings, and nozzle adjustability. Many models feature two self-cleaning retractable nozzles - one posterior nozzle for makes and females, and one feminine wash nozzle for female hygiene.
In all models except the Swash 101 & 102 Ecoseat, these electronic bidet features are easily controlled at the touch of a wireless or sidearm remote control. Consult your owner's manual to see just which custom features your particular bidet seat includes and use the remote function to select and operate the perfect wash experience for your needs.
If you have a Swash 101 or 102 Ecoseat, simply use the adjsutable pressure controls on the side of the seat to engage both feminine and posterior aerated washes.
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 feature is controlled by the user. It can be set to one of three temperature settings, or simply turned off. Some Swash bidet toilet seats also feature 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?
Depending on your Swash model, the bidet will either have a warm water tank reservoir or an instant ceramic heating system.
- Swash seats that are equipped with a warm water tank reservoir maintains warm water for the duration of a 60-second wash cycle. After that, the water temperature will start to decrease and then go cold. Once you stop the cycle, the tank will refill and heat. It takes about 3-4 minutes to refill and reheat the tank to the desired temperature.
- Built-in instant ceramic heating systems heat water on-demand and provide "endless" warm water washes.
- The Swash 101 & 102 pulls room temperature water from your existing water line and does not heat the water.
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 1000 and 1400 also offer nozzle sterilization.
What is the weight limit of the Swash?
The Swash lid has a weight limit of 270 pounds. The seat itself has a weight limit of 330 pounds.
