CostCo has this Bidet Toilet on sale for $999.99 and we are thinking of buying it.
This will be our first time with a Bidet of any type, so I thought I would ask for input.
I was looking at it, too. There were enough people posting negative reviews about reliability that I decided to pass on it. While there are many people who were pleased, move than 10 % of the reviews were 1 or 2 stars and many of them related to electronics failures. When I install an expensive, complicated toilet, I don't want to have to worry about it failing in a year or two, or whether the company wil be around in 5 years to provide repair parts. The good news is the fact that it's from Costco and you could get a refund if you weren't happy, but it's not like bringing a toaster back to the store.
We chose to use the bidet seat instead of the full toilet. As best I can tell, it has all the functionality of the toilet but less money and way easier to return if we have problems or just hate it. Got it from Costco too.
Can I fit a toilet,bidet and sink in a guest bathroom 4x4?
Toilets with built in bidets
I need to find a wall hung toilet with a washlet/bidet function.
Bidet toilet seats
Take a look at Woodbridge smart toilets. They have a lot of good reviews. https://www.woodbridgebath.com/home/product/prolist/classid/3/attr/15_83?sortby=price&attr=15_83&classid=3&viewmod=grid
I purchase a bidet toilet from OVE Decors - The Tuva, I'm so happy with it I feel like I can never go back to a regular toilet again! https://www.houzz.com/products/ove-decors-tuva-elongated-bidet-white-tankless-toilet-prvw-vr~123714690

We have two washlet seats, a Toto and a BioBidet. We've probably had them now for close to 10 years.
My wife and I both favor the BB over the Toto. It's the BB1000, probably a model that is no longer offered. But we've had zero issues with it, or with the hand held remote.Highly recommend a hand held remote. VERY easy.
If this one went kaput, I'd want to buy another.
EDIT: Just looked, and I CAN buy another, lol. Same remote too. BioBidet1000
I am looking at the Tushy for the price point and lack of "gadgetry." Simple with few areas to break.
I just looked at the Biobidet and found their "Slim" model and it looks like another great, simple option. Thanks for posting about them.
MongoCT, just curious, what are BioBidet advantages over Toto?
Read the reviews for the Tushy. You get what you pay for.
I have! that’s why they’re on my radar. But the bidet attachments from Biobidet would be a nice way to test out the idea. Sorry to hijack the thread OP!
I have a Toto washlet and love it. I don't think squirting cold water on my bits is an equivalent experience :-)
We were also looking at one unit first but then decided to go with normal toilet and separate bidet seat. That way it'll be easier to replace if/when bidet electronics will break without having to deal with toilet itself.
We have kohler ( https://www.us.kohler.com/us/c3-050-cleansing-toilet-seat-elongated/productDetail/toilet-seats/1293422.htm?skuId=1293420&brandId=1058245). Got it as part of the plumbing package with good discount so we were not comparing with any others. Work well but it does not have air drier. Next one will certainly have an air drier :)
And one question for people that have remotes for their bidet seats: do you use it often or just for initial settings? is it worth the increased cost?
The Tushy offers a hot water connection as well. I like the slim profile and price point for testing it out so if my husband hates it then I'm only out a hundred or so versus several hundred.
I think the biggest thing for us is the spray patterns and water velocity.
For my wife, the female spray patterns she prefers the BB1000. For me, I use the "enema" spray function a lot. Pressure is excellent, but however it all works it results in an easy bowel movement.
Warm water, we both like, but she does like it more.
Heated seat, my wife loves, me, I'm indifferent.
Air dryer, I never use, she does occasionally.
We first bought the BB1000. Installed it in the master bath. Then bought the Toto C300. Moved the BB to the kid's bath and installed the C300 in the master. We both soon realized we both preferred the BB1000 over the Toto c300. So I swapped them out. It wasn't a "new" versus "old", or a "what you're used to" thing. It was performance related.
