Just install a regular toilet seat, get inspected and signed off. Frankly I've never heard of such a requirement...do you have a backflow preventer on your bath sink, kitchen sink,shower? I'm not a plumber but the only case where backflow preventer might be desired is if your equipment is in a basement subject to flooding. Where is the bidet nozzle going to suck water from and back into your water supply? Crazy requirement from inspector. Call brondel if necessary. I have enjoyed two of this model for over 5yrs with zero issues.
It does not auto flush. You have to do it yourself.
If the seat is a standard two hole mount, from the pictures I saw it should fit. The way the bidet seat mounts is pretty versatile. so it should work.
The old seat is removed and replaced with the Brondell Swash.
The cord is not very long, but you can use a 3prong extension cord that will work frime !! We love ours......works perfect!!
It connects to cold water only, however the Brondell Swash 1000 has a temperature feature with a built in heater system. You can adjust the temperature in three levels. Essentially cold supply which may be about 60-65 degrees here, luke warm perhaps about 75-80 degrees, and mildly warmer about 90-95 degrees or so. It is definitely not HOT water. We mainly use it on the cold or luke warm settings for energy reasons, but occasionally use the warmest setting. Whatever you have it set on, the system may purge the old water in the heater tank and then begin to heat the water to be ready for you.
The unit seems to be high-quality and the S1000 model has a 3 year parts and labor warranty (50% of costs in 3rd year).
Yes, this will work on almost any toilet, all the major manufacturers. Just make sure your bidet is ordered for a round or elongated toilet seat which ever your actual toilet has.
It's designed for an elongated bowl, but it is quite short.
Yes, it has a slow activating cover in that when you drop the lid it does not slam and slowly drop down to the toilet seat. The actual cover is fine to sit on but I would not recommend you stand on the cover especially if you weigh over 130 or 140 pounds.
