I bought my Kohler Novita BH-90 Plastic Elongated Bidet Seat in November 2018 and still use it several times daily as recently as yesterminute! I had shoulder surgery scheduled for 26 December 2018 and asked my wife if she was willing to help me with a problem I was likely to have after the surgery. Prior to her first blink, she told me that she was either unwilling to provide the assistance I required or that she was planning to be out of the country on a trip she had yet to plan or schedule. Naturally, after considering a short list of solutions to my problem. a bidet presented itself as a remedy that would make her travel unnecessary. I found my Kohler Novita BH-90 Plastic Elongated Bidet Seat on line at Home Depot... ON SALE! I bought it, installed it after an electrician I hired installed an GFC outlet near the toilet. It was easy to install and worked well immediately. Because I'm a graduate of a New England high school and know how to read, the installation directions were easy to follow. I did so.
I use the bidet-seat's remote control when I am in my bathroom office! Double tap the upper left hand button on the remote and the bidet does what it does that I need to be done! One can use the remote control to adjust the temperatures of the water and the seat, and to adjust the pressure and the oscillation features of the wand when it does what it does for two-minutes or less. One can control how far the nozzle extends before it does what it does; you might think of this feature as an entertainment option. The blue light in the seat mechanics is controlled only by a control pad that is part of the seat itself.
The seat cover and donut ring can be set to open automatically when the motion detector on the bidet-seat is triggered by your presence. This feature was welcome until it started to open and close every once in a while without anyone present in the middle of the night. So, that was/is a malfunction but I simply disabled the option and have learned to live without it. I'll never be without a bidet!
Installing on some Koehler toilets needs some extra attention. See the attached pictures.
The installer may have to use the original screws from the toilet set if the nuts are inserted in the base. The Koehler Bidet is a great bathroom appliance and had not have any problems since install.
I also used Velcro to install the remote on the wall instead of the supplied adhesive pads. It saves my wall if I want to paint my wall later
The Novita seat was much easier to install than I thought it would be. The hardest part was wiring a new outlet next to my toilet, but I had an outlet on the other side of the wall that I just pigtailed into. It was done in about 30 minutes. Installing the seat itself didn't require any tools. The instructions are very barebones, but the remote is pretty intuitive. My 3-year-old knows how to use the kids wash, the dryer, and how to turn it off. And the bidet seems to have an endless supply of warm water. Good product.
I bought and installed the Novita Bidet Seat on a one-piece Kohler toilet. The Kohler installation video was excellent and made the installation process both easy and quick. It took some time (a few days!) to get the knack of operating the bidet functions efficiently. I had surgery on my right shoulder a few weeks ago that seriously limited the use of my right hand. Prior to that surgery my beautiful wife told me she was unwilling "to go where no man (or woman) had gone before" during my recovery from surgery. I know now that the Novita bidet seat does a better job of matter removal than my wife could ever have done had she chosen to accommodate my needs.
My choice to have a bidet seat was driven by an actual need for help. That said, I think I should have had a bidet seat installed years ago if only to have erased skid marks, the conspicuous artifacts of inefficiency in my elimination protocols.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'll start by saying how easy this was to install. My 12 year old son installed it all himself, it even came with batteries for the remote. Yes you read that correctly... remote...for my toilet seat! I never would've dreamed I would feel the need for such a fancy toilet seat but now I could never dream living without it! Two words first off....seat warmer! I could leave it at that but so much more. I am a woman with 3 sons and a husband. The motion sensor lid or lid and seat lifter is worth it's weight in gold! No more touching the lid to put it down for me anymore or falling in, in the middle of the night! The bidet is great, especially for a toddler who is learning to clean himself after going, it helps with the job. It's very sturdily made and I believe would last a long time.
This is one of the best purchases we've made. Everything about this product says clean, from the bidet functionality to the automatic open/close of the seat. I love the heated seat, especially in the winter. It's one of those products that once you experience it, you can never go without it.
