PDS Hygiene introduced the Bio Bidet electronic bidet toilet seat to the United Kingdom in September 2007. Bio Bidet offers an efficient and sophisticated alternative to purpose built shower toilets at a fraction of the price and is the only electronic bidet seat with WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approval for installation in the UK. Bio Bidet can be fitted to most standard toilet pans in place of the original toilet seat. It provides the user with a temperature and pressure controlled warm water wash and blow-dry. The normal operation of the toilet is unchanged; it operates conventionally with the addition of the bidet.

Bidet toilet seats were developed in Japan as luxury items some years ago. They have since moved into the mainstream and they are now in common use in the Far East. All hotels and public buildings in Japan are fitted with them, as are millions of private homes. None were approved for connection to the water main in the United Kingdom until PDS Hygiene redesigned the Bio Bidet to comply with British regulations. The testing programme leading to WRAS approval included putting the Bio Bidet through over 200 000 operating cycles. Users can therefore be confident that they are using a welltested product.

We displayed the Bio Bidet at the Naidex Exhibition at the NEC in 2008 where it was selected as one of the highlights of the exhibition by the BBC. Please follow the BBC link below to view the Bio Bidet shown in photo number 4.

There are two models available: BB-800 Prestige and BB-1000 Supreme. BB-800 has a fixed control panel on the side of the seat while BB-1000 has a remote control unit which adds to its functionality as a mobility aid. BB-1000 also comes with the added feature of a deodoriser.

The Bio Bidet is the only electronic bidet toilet seat approved for direct connection to the water main in the UK. It would normally be plumbed into the water supply feeding the toilet cistern (using the flexible hose and Tee connector supplied) provided the pressure is at least 0.4 bar.

The Bio Bidet is equipped with a power cord that can be plugged into a standard domestic power socket protected by a residual current device (RCD). When fitted in a bathroom it would normally be connected via a switched fused spur and RCD. This would be done by a qualified electrician.

The static weight limit for the Bio Bidet seat is 21 stone (133kg).

The prices inclusive of next working day delivery throughout the UK mainland are:

BB-1000 (Remote Control) £564.00 (£480.00 + VAT)

BB-800 (Fixed Side Control) £495.54 (£421.74 + VAT)

The Bio Bidet can be purchased VAT free if the person is eligible to receive goods zero rated for VAT.

We offer 12 months parts and labour warranty on both models.
