What Is a Bidet Toilet Seat?
Rather than installing an entire porcelain bidet, you can install a toilet seat that functions as a bidet. The TOTO bidet seat is so popular that “WASHLET” has become synonymous with the term bidet toilet seat. TOTO is a trusted Japanese manufacturer with a knack for innovation. The name WASHLET is a derivative of “let wash” that alludes to the idea that the unit does the washing for the user. WASHLETs have grown in popularity due to the advanced features offered by each model. We carry bidet seats from other manufacturers, including Brondell.

Choosing Your Bidet
- Know the Size and Shape of your Toilet: Unless you’re purchasing a single-unit bidet, you need to know what size of the bidet to buy. Know before you buy, long and elongated, short and circular, or else you may get the wrong one.
- Find out what type of bidet you want: Though we’ve already mentioned the popular “spray bidet” model, there are a few different types that have different modes, features, or behavior, and you need to know which one you want.
- Don’t Expect a Separate Bowl: Most bidets—particularly here in the US—are overlays that fit within the toilet itself, contrary to what you might see in the movies. The reason for this is that the separate bowl models are costly, and are often not worth the money. Yes, these models are available to you if you can afford it, but know that—with standard bidets—you won’t be getting a standalone basin.
Environmental Benefits of Bidet Toilet Seats
Studies show that Americans use approximately 37 billion rolls of toilet paper each year, the equivalent of 15 million trees. Not only are bidet seats designed to enhance a bathroom, but they also reduce the use of toilet paper, which is beneficial on multiple levels. With a reduction in the amount of toilet paper that flushes into the sewer system, there is less chance for clogs and a reduced need to empty the septic tank.
Another benefit specific to the TOTO WASHLET is the used water per flush. Initially, some users were skeptical of WASHLETs with all of the features and new technology. One of the impactful improvements that Toto has had to make in designing their bidet toilet seat is water usage. TOTO has designed the WASHLET to get the job done while using approximately one gallon of water per day for the average family, which is not a significant increase over the typical water used by the alternative traditional toilet seat.
Benefits to Personal Hygiene
New advancements in the bidet seat industry have proved that their cleaning features are superior to wiping with toilet paper in regard to personal hygiene problems, such as infection. Experts were initially worried that the water expelled from the bidet spray faucet might become contaminated and spread disease, but to counteract this unfounded concern, the TOTO WASHLET includes a self-cleaning nozzle. WASHLETs have proven to be among the most successful and environmentally friendly ways to optimize your bathroom.
