Buying Guide Steps
Sixty Second Guide to Buying a Bidet.
Do you want to buy a bidet but you’re not sure which one is perfect for you? In the next 60 seconds, we’ll show you how to pick a model that suites your needs and budget.
0:60 Electric or Non-Electric?
Electric models require a GFCI outlet near to your toilet for the power supply. Installation is relatively identical among all offered models and relatively simple and straight forward. All functions are regulated by a built-in PCB with multi-safety features. Electric models offer more features and are considered “luxurious”.
Non-electric models are water pressure driven bidets with basic washing functions only. No convenient features such as massage, wide clean, aerated stream, warm seat, warm air, and deodorizer. Scroll down to “Non-Electric” if this is the model you are interested in..
If you prefer ELECTRIC MODELS with advanced technologies:

0:40 Remote or side panel?
Wireless remotes come in handy if you want the convenience of using a handheld controller to operate your bidet without having to reach to your side or look down. Wireless remote controls can be used as handheld or wall mounted on either side you prefer. Remote type models are also equipped with simple side panel on the unit.
In contrast to wireless remote type models, side panel models come with a fixed side control panel directly attached to the seat on the right-hand side of the user. This type of bidet is more popular in households with children since they cannot misplace or damage the remote control.
Wireless Remote : BB-2000, BB-1000, USPA6800, BB-400
Side Panel : BB-1700, BB-800, BB-600
0:30 On-demand or water tank heating?
On demand heating is instant water heating technology that allows unlimited warm water supply.
Water tank type heating constantly heats water to maintain warm water at a set temperature but does not heat the water while it is in use. Warm water is limited to 40 to 60 seconds per usage which is plenty for normal use.
On-Demand Heating : BB-2000, BB-1700
Water Tank Heating : BB-1000, USPA 6800, BB-800, BB-600, BB-400
0:20 Elongated or Round seat?
Elongated seats are oval shaped seats which are about 2” longer than a round bowl and often found to be more comfortable due to the added sitting room. The elongated bowl size is typically 18 ½” long from the center of the mounting bolts to the very front of the toilet. Elongated toilet bowls are more popular in larger, more spacious bathrooms where the size won’t get in the way of doors, drawers, or cabinets but in small bathrooms, a round bowl can save space. Round bowls typically measures 16 ½” long. The shorter size of round bowls makes them a good fit for children.
Bio Bidet seats are designed to fit all standard 2 piece toilets and most 1 pc toilets but there are few unusual toilets that might not fit, such as rare low boy 1 pc toilets with French curves where the toilet tank connects to the base of toilet.
If you have one of low boy style toilets shown as “C” type below, contact us to confirm compatibility.
If you prefer NON-ELECTRIC MODELS with basic functions:
0:50 Seat or just an attachment?
Bidet seat models come with complete a seat assembly where your toilet seat and lid will be replaced.
Bidet seats will convert your toilet into a bidet toilet in minutes. The seat and lid are hydraulic for soft closing and made of fire-retardant ABS resin.
Bidet attachments are bidet units which mount between your existing toilet and toilet seat.
A side control panel is placed on right side of user to operate the attached nozzle which extracts for washing only when in use. Nozzles are normally hidden behind splash guards when not in use.
Seat : BB-i3000
Bidet Attachment: BBC-70, BBC-250, Elite3
0:40 Ambient or warm water?
Ambient water bidets only require a cold water connection directly from the fresh water line already connected to your toilet. The first 10 to 15 seconds of the water spray will be from the water pipes inside of your hose so it will likely be room temperature and then gradually cool to the outside temperature. The water spray is in a fine mist form and it won’t feel as cold as the actual water temperature outside even in cold climate areas.
Warm water bidets require both hot and cold water connections. The hot water connection often comes from the hot water shut off valve which is usually located under the sink. The water source must be on the same side of the bathroom as the toilet and within 6 feet. Warm water bidets come with the cold water bypass feature to drain out remaining water inside of hot water pipe to avoid getting sprayed by idle cold water.
Ambient Water : BBC-70, Elite 3
Warm Water : BB-i3000 & BBC-250
0:20 Single or Dual nozzle?
Single nozzle models are designed for posterior wash (also known as the family wash) and easy to operate with a single pressure control knob. The pressure control knob comes with P.S.P.C for easier operation.
Dual nozzles are for posterior and feminine wash with self-cleaning feature. An extra control knob is placed on the control panel for nozzle selection and self-cleaning. User will simply turn the top knob to select between posterior or feminine wash before turning the bidet on by increasing the water pressure.
Single Nozzle : BBC-70
Dual Nozzle : BBC-250, Elite3
