One of the top contenders in the fight to be recognized as the major player in the battle of the bidets.
Along with the likes of TOTO, Brondell, Novita and others, BioBidet is one of the most prominent manufacturers of bidets – both electric and mechanical – and consistently makes innovative, quality bidets.
Two bidets from BioBidet have left lots of people wondering which one provides the best value: the BB1000 and BB2000.
Bottom Line Up Front
To save you a smidge of time, I’ll give you the verdict right off the bat:
While some of the BB2000’s features aren’t revolutionary, the whole suite is simply a much better package than what you’d get with the BB1000.
Unless you’re truly strapped for cash and have a surprising fondness for the appearance of the BB1000, the BB2000 is definitely the way to go.
Read on to see for yourself how we’ve come to this conclusion.
To make the arduous task of selecting the proper poop-chute shiner a bit more bearable, we’ll start off with the major differences between these titans of tush cleaning.
In my opinion, BioBidet have really missed the mark with the BB1000.
It has been compared to a “medical device fit for a retirement home” and honestly, I agree.
It’s big, bulky, sterile-looking (in a repulsive, hospital kinda way) and so far from sexy that giving it an Ed Hardy sleeveless T-shirt and slathering it in hair gel couldn’t make it look worse.
Even the remote for the BB2000 (you can choose either black or white) looks sleeker and more modern.
The BB2000 however, while not a feast for the eyes, is much more pleasant to behold.
With some nice curves and a slimmer profile due to its lack of a water heating reservoir, the BB2000 is a bidet seat fit for most toilets.
Besides the look (and majorly contributing it) of the two bidets, the second major difference between them is the BB2000’s instantaneous heating system versus the BB1000’s reservoir heating system.
When it comes to actually using these two systems, you probably won’t notice much of a difference.
The BB1000 has ample water to clean your rear – unless you expect multiple people to be using the seat in quick succession. In that case, the latter users may get the shaft as whoever got in there first has most likely used a good deal of the warm water already.
The BB2000 doesn’t encounter this problem as its water is heated instantly and continuously. Feel euphoric as infinite amounts of warm water caress your ass.
Stainless Steel Nozzle
The BB2000 has a stainless steel nozzle and the BB1000 does not.
In my opinion, a stainless steel nozzle is a feature that any bidet I’m going to buy should have.
Stainless steel is more durable, looks better, is easier to clean and is a more hostile environment for bacteria, viruses and fungi.
The BB2000 has this feature, the BB1000 does not. What it is refers to the way the nozzle of the BB2000 is cleaned by blasting water through the nozzle from the inside-out to more thoroughly sterilize it.
This is opposed to the way most other bidets simply run water over the outside of the nozzle to remove any nasty lil-bits that may have found their way onto the nozz.
Now, whether this is actually going to increase the cleanliness of your dump sessions is still up for debate as other bidets without this feature have been sufficiently cleaning asses for many many years without issue.
The bottom line on this feature is: if it makes you feel more comfortable knowing the inside of the nozzle can be cleaned at will, BioBidet’s Hydro Flush feature may be worth it for you.
Belted Nozzle Cleaning
The motorized nozzles on the BB2000 are able to move more precisely and more quickly than other bidet nozzles.
Basically, this means they can quickly shimmy in and out as the outside is being cleaned with water to more throughly remove anything on the outside of the nozzle.
The motor operated nozzle is also able to be more precisely adjusted than other nozzles, although how much this is going to affect your morning session is up for you to decide.
Most bidets have several positions for the wand/nozzle to allow for a customized fit for each user. BioBidet’s motorized nozzle technology on the BB2000 allows for much smaller and more precise adjustments.
If you are unable to shimmy your rear a little bit to accommodate one of the BB1000’s preset nozzle positions, the infinitely adjustable BB2000 may be the bidet seat for you.
This is one of the coolest features of the BB2000. Its cool, blue nightlight illuminates a small control panel on the side of the bidet for easy use even in the darkest, windowless bathrooms.
While it may not seem like a game-changer, a night light really makes your bathroom seem more modern as it is bathed in a calming blue light.
Not only is this useful for your late-night sessions, it’s probably the single most impressive feature for guests who haven’t experienced anything outside of a vanilla toilet.
At the end of the day, it should be obvious to most that the BB2000 is ultimately the better bidet.
As a bidet is a serious investment of money, you really shouldn’t settle for something unless you’re completely satisfied with the features provided.
If you’re looking for a premium bidet, the BB2000 is a decent offering from BioBidet.
