Top-notch performance at top-notch prices
Invented in the 1600s in France, the bidet started as an aristocratic amenity. Today, the bidet is widely used in Europe and Asia and considered a part of basic hygiene. Despite resistance to past efforts to popularize the bidet in the States, Americans are coming around to the idea, too, as judging by the response to this recent innovation on modern toilet technology.
The SmartBidet SB-1000 is meant to replace the seat of a standard toilet. It boasts an array of features designed to make your bathroom experience cleaner, more comfortable, and overall better than your old ‘porcelain throne’. Gone are the days of the wipe-and-check method; this bidet will make sure you leave the bathroom with a sparkling bum.
A Temperature-Controlled Seat
One of the first features we should mention is the power function that keeps the seat and the water in the bowl at an even, comfortable temperature. For those of us who don’t appreciate that shock of cold during the winter when you sit down to do your business, this is a welcome change. Don’t worry about heating costs– the temperature function only engages when you sit down. You can even adjust the seat temperature manually to meet your comfort levels.
Water Pressure Levels
Speaking about comfort levels, few things are more uncomfortable than misjudging the force with which a focused stream of water is directed at your most vulnerable bits. It doesn’t have to end in disaster, though! You have the option of five different water pressure levels, with one being the lowest and five being the highest. Be warned that cranking that number up results in a marked increase in force, so maybe test which level is to your liking before you use the bidet for the first time.
Nozzle and Wash Modes
The SB-1000’s nozzle is automatically self-sanitizing and activates after each use, saving you the time and hassle of cleaning it yourself. There are multiple different modes to choose from: ‘posterior wash’ is for your backside, while ‘feminine wash’ is a wider, gentler spray meant to clean your front. ‘Turbo’, of course, is stronger than the previous two, with a concentrated burst of water propelled straight at your posterior. A reviewer on Amazon claims that ‘turbo’ is “…probably just short of powerful enough to peel an apple.” On top of that, there’s also an ‘oscillate’ option, which means the nozzle will swing from side to side to give you a more thorough cleaning.
It’s proven that the SmartBidet SB-1000 stands up to wear and tear, with one customer stating his model lasted five years before it was necessary to repair it. The easy-to-use remote control is reliable and could be of great assistance to users with mobility issues, and the various adjustable options for temperature and water pressure make this bidet a great choice at the intersection of quality of price.
