Top 3 New Bidet Seats of 2022
#1. Alpha UX Pearl
The Alpha UX Pearl is the newest model in the Alpha Bidet line. This luxury bidet is not only one of slimmest models on the market, but it also has some of the most advanced features available. It is powered by an energy efficient, tankless water heating system which provides on-demand, unlimited warm water.
Along with standard features like a heated seat, warm air dryer, and a soft close seat and lid, the UX Pearl contains a photocatalyst deodorizer that neutralizes unpleasant smells. It also has the benefit of not needing a cartridge to be replaced, like some other deodorizers.
The UX Pearl also has an industry exclusive Pure Breeze Bowl Sanitizer which utilizes an air plasma generator to sanitize and freshen your toilet bowl between uses by circulating ion particles. This significantly cuts down on odors and bacteria inside your bowl.
The UX Pearl utilizes an arc shaped stainless steel nozzle. This uniquely curved, self cleaning stainless steel nozzle minimizes any chance of contamination and splash-back while also providing a better reach during a front wash cycle. Lastly, the UX Pearl has 2 user presets that allow users to save up to two user profiles. These user profiles save the spray pressure, nozzle position, and temperature settings.
The Bio Bidet Discovery DLS is the newest luxury bidet seat from Bio Bidet. It is also one of the slimmest models available on the market and, along with having standard features like a warm air dryer and heated seat, the DLS Discovery also has a unique UV Sterilization feature. This feature uses ultraviolet light to sterilize the nozzle after each wash cycle, reducing the spread of germs. This is in addition to the nozzle’s self cleaning function that uses water like other bidet seats.
The Discovery DLS also has a motorized opening/closing seat and lid. This allows users to easily open and close the seat and/or lid with a press of a button. Users also have the option to activate the proximity sensor which will allow the user to open the seat and/or lid by simply walking up to the toilet. This is a great feature for those looking for a true hands free experience.
#3. TOTO Washlet C5
The TOTO Washlet C5, from world renowned bidet manufacturer TOTO, is the new and improved version of the C200 Washlet featuring improved performance, features, and build quality. The TOTO Washlet C5 has already grown to become one of the most popular bidet seats in the US as the C200 was discontinued in early 2021.
Containing the same core features as its predecessor, warm water, heated seat, warm air dryer, the C5 also boasts some new features such as EWATER. This feature converts the ions in your tap water into a gentle cleansing agent that can help reduce the chemicals necessary for cleaning. Another improvement for the TOTO Washlet C5 is a sleeker and slimmer profile. The C5 is only 5.7 inches thick at its thickest point and 1.4 inches thin at its thinnest point.
For years, the biggest complaint with TOTO’s value oriented bidet seat models was their bulky design. The C5 has improved on that greatly while adding a few other features to boot.
