- Novita vs BB 2000 Review by Ashley
- great, but... Review by cd
The BB-2000 does have more features than the Inax, but I had been looking for a stronger spray(and I was tired of the two nozzles catching on each other).
I do remember being very impressed with the strength of the bb2000 at first, but in the past several weeks, it seemed to lessen. We tried cleaning both the nozzle and strainer to really no avail. Changing the filter brought results, but it still does not seem as powerful as I remember.
Also, while I have tried to bear in mind that it is harder for the water to be hot, or be kept hot, when it's colder weather...lately it has been much warmer and very little difference in water temp, which is low temp even on max settings.
I can't really fully review the seat warmer as I can't stand that, but when we first installed it, it was very warm.
I feel they have gotten something backwards here. The seat itself has a nightlight feature for the manual buttons. It is very bright, cannot be disabled(that Ive seen), and when you have this thing installed in a master bath, it can be irksome when you turn off the lights to go to bed.
And yet, the remote is not back-lit. When you get up in the middle of the night, you don't want to turn on all the lights; it would be nice if the remote lit up so you could see the screen and the buttons. I do not use even half of the buttons. I feel like this was a little over-thought on the designers part.
Another issue is that the bracket that attaches the seat to the toilet is cheaply made plastic.
This bidet seems to have been designed with plus size people in mind... I say seems, because of how much weight capacity they made sure it could hold...seems a selling point... and yet the brackets are plastic.
I am plus size, and I can attest the actual seat so far does hold up well. On both the Inax and this model though, I've had to remove the lid completely from the unit.
Plus size people generally have extra padding in the back area, and it can be painful to try and sit and have a lid digging in your hips. Not to mention being forced to sit to far forward that the sprays can't reach their allotted areas. So bye to the lid.
That also brings me to the dryer. It has the same power as the previous Inax, which is hardly anything. I don't turn it on because it makes absolutely no difference. I don't have the time, inclination, or frankly even the physical endurance to sit on the toilet for as long enough that it would take to dry; instead I have to use alternate methods.
As far as cleaning strength-again, in the beginning, it was strong, and I felt like it did its job (sans dryer). Now, however, it does not lend me the feeling it has fully cleaned. You can just tell.
Would I buy this bidet again? I think so, but I haven't had it long enough to truly discern whether it will last for the amount I've paid for it.
However I really do like that it is one nozzle, and there are three different sprays- also an added option for oscillation.
I do like that even at its current weakest point, it's still stronger than the Inax. It is a lot better than toilet paper at any rate.
Would I recommend this? For non, or even mild plus size persons, I think a solid yes, because they can use the full functionality of the seat (including lid).
For those a bit more weighty, I still would, but just advise they don't have as high expectations for it. And for any of those in the extreme category (over even the bidets weight capacity), it's worth it if you can afford it. You may have to adjust and wiggle (carefully) for the spray to have access, but the seat is very sturdy(except for the bracket). I would note that while the seat is considered elongated, it is shorter than the Inax from back to front.
Also, the seat is easy to clean. I do recall in previous research, reading that some bidet seats had issues. If mine has any, I've yet to see them. (Posted on 2/28/2016)

- Excellent, after 6 months use Review by Larry
The only learning curve is how you position yourself on the seat for cleaning. While this device is designed for the average butt, we are all different sizes. While the adjustable wand helps to position the wash, it does take a little scooting to hit the right spot. I slide a bit forward, the wife slides a bit back. After a couple of times, this becomes automatic.
Go ahead, buy it, try it, you will love it.

- Lots of Features, remote can be confusing, a little noisy Review by JJ
1. Comfortable seat (elongated is what I have)
2. Good water pressure
3. Easy installation, even for non handy type people
4. Multiple useful functions such as variable water temp, heated seat, soft close seat, oscillation of nozzle, auto clean
5. Wall Mounted wireless remote
1. Its LOUD. Loud enough for people outside of the bathroom to hear the motor fairly clearly. Some may not care, but this for a bathroom near a main area, It could cause some embarassment as you can hear the motor spin up / oscillate, etc.
2. Wall mounted remote has small buttons
3. Many of the buttons on the wall mounted remote are confusing, and depending on who this product is intended for could be frustrating.
First, shipping from BidetKing was on time, and the order process was extremely painless. Product is pretty easy to install, as I am not the most handy of guys and was able to get it installed in about 25 minutes.
The remote has pretty small buttons, so if you are installing this for someone who has vision issues, that could be an issue. Also, there are a LOT of features on this bidet, and not every button on the remote is self explanatory. One example of this is, the "rear wash" button looks pretty darn similar to the "enema" button, as they both have icons of rear ends with water. The enema button shows a stream and the "rear wash" button shows more of a spray, but unless you are familiar with these buttons you could get a surprise.
The spray pressure is very good, and adjustable. The water stream is targetted well, both for males and females. I am 6'3 and 230lbs and the seat is pretty comfortable (elongated seat). My wife is about 5'7 and says the seat is also comfortable for her.
The seat warmer is nice, and comfortable. My experience with the supposed "instant on" unlimited hot water has been hit or miss. When the bidet first turns on, the water is "cool / warm" and then gradually warms up to the temperature set. They claim no "cold spots" and I guess that is true, however the water is not always the temperature you set.
One BIG negative (at least for me) was the noise this unit makes. I ordered (2) of these units, with one to be put in a master bedroom, and one in a powder room off my family room area. The idea was for my wife and I to have easy access to a Bidet both upstairs and downstairs, and also give friends and family a chance to try one.
This bidet is LOUD. Loud enough for people to hear the motor spin up while in our family room, and wonder what the noise is.
I am surprised I do not see other reviewers speak of the noise, which makes me think there might be an issue with mine... but in all other respects it operates normally.
I am rating the overall product as 4 stars. If the unit was not as noisy as it is, it would be an easy 5 stars, even with the somewhat confusing remote.
