Bio Bidet BB-1000 Supreme Bidet Seat w/ Remote
- Product Review (submitted on January 28, 2013):
"I have had the opportunity to test several bidet seats due to my family owning a few brands in their respective homes. I cannot go into detail about the others that I have tested since I have only used them a handful of times while visiting however I will say that the BB-1000, which I ultimately purchased for myself, has an extremely effective water spray. Cleansing aside, I was looking for something that would do more than be a hygienic plus.
With a product as compact as this that draws a maximum of 600 watts, I can say that the water pressure that the motors supply is very impressive.
On one of the `test' models, the water seemed to dip like the water stream from a drinking fountain. When turned on, it would spray water at an upwards angle but the pressure was not strong enough to keep that angle steady so by the time it reaches a human body, the water merely skims it and flows back down into the toilet bowl. As you can imagine, this was very frustrating and inconvenient since I had to position myself constantly in order to get this dipping water to touch my butt.
On another `test' model, the water pressure was too uninhibited. There was nothing regulating the amount of water or the pressure of which it came thus making it uncomfortable in a painful way. No, it was not on any enema wash it was just a standard posterior wash at low to medium settings. I felt like if I had kept the spray on one spot for two minutes straight, that spot would become bruised.
One bidet, no matter where I positioned my body or the nozzle, it would spray my back.
Needless to say, although I liked the concept of these things, I was never impressed. Nonetheless, I wanted one in my home but I decided to go another route than my parents and brothers. I did my homework and narrowed it down to two seats that I had a good feeling about. I ultimately went with the BB-1000 because of the unique 3-in-1 nozzle and the enema/turbo wash.
I am very pleased with the water spray on this product. Upon installation, I placed my hand on the seat to activate the safety sensor and covered the opening where the water would spray with my hand. I tested it on all three washes this way so that I could observe the water and found each one to be satisfactory. The water shoots at one steady angle and comes at a rather thick volume of water. The difference with this one is that it uses `bubbly' water so the stream isn't painful while it is still powerful.
All bidets can clean a person (more or less) but I wanted a bidet that performed up to my standards. If I wanted to settle with a simple squirt of water, I would have. From a technical point of view, regardless of the silly extra features that I don't need (i.e auto open and closing lid, auto flushing, etc), this might be one of the best bidets I would have been able to find. Do you buy a bidet so it will flush the toilet for you or do you buy one to get a satisfactory water stream to clean you off? I am part of the latter and I would recommend this to anyone else who thinks the way I do."
