An electric bidet toilet seat has been becoming popular these days due to the benefits and comforts it can offer—making every toilet experience simpler and more convenient. Aside from the apparent health risks reductions through contamination, bidet use prevents constipation and soreness, bleeding or itching of hemorrhoids, and occurrence of rashes.

It is soothing and more comfortable to cleanse with warm water instead of using a toilet paper which may cause irritation and may even leave a residue. The use of a bidet toilet seat with a washlet reduces our need to use a toilet paper and helps clean our private areas with ease. So besides doing away with paperwork, it gives us a fresher and cleaner feeling.

So what do we need to know about bidet toilet seats and what features do we look out for? On this post, we will review the characteristics of one of the top bidet toilet seat products on the market today.

So why this TOTO Washlet? Go ahead and read on.

Features Explained

Heated Bidet Seat

A heated bidet seat can offer ultimate comfort by eliminating surprises from the cold feeling of the toilet seat on your bare skin. This feature helps improve the way you feel because heat allows you to release body tension and relax your muscles.

Adjustable Water Temperature and Pressure

This feature will allow you to set the temperature and pressure based on your preferences and toilet needs. It also removes the need for toilet paper use so rubbing your private areas will not be necessary anymore.

When those parts are feeling a bit more sensitive, the adjustable water pressure will help provide comfort and prevent any more swelling or irritation.

Remote Control

Having a remote control allows you to make adjustments and changes easier than ever. This is most helpful to those people with limited mobility due to aging or injury. There will be no need to stretch and reach out somewhere to make adjustments.

Energy Saving

This feature helps you minimize your power usage to keep your energy bills low. The electric bidet seat will power back up when someone sits down and goes into sleep mode when not in use which allows you to conserve a considerable amount of energy.

The Wand

After you are done with dumping, this pulsating and oscillating feature does its job by providing short water bursts to cleanse your areas. It does not hurt and leaves a relaxing feeling. This is a known feature of a TOTO Washlet.

Products Compared

The Washlet A200 is one of the primary or entry product of the TOTO Washlets. There are also mid-range, top of the range and washlet toilet products.

The midrange seats come with the same features as the A200 with advanced functions like the air deodorizer, warm air dryer and a Connect+, a feature which conceals the water supply hose and the power cord. Being cleansed by a gentle, warm water followed by a mild action of a warm air dryer is something that is hard to resist since it gives instant confidence and a feeling of freshness.

The top of the range products have an added feature called eWater+ which provides electrolyzed water used as cleanser or disinfectant and is famous for its automatic open and close lid and its night light. The washlet toilets include an elongated bowl and dual function features.

The Verdict

So, are you ready to change your toilet experience? Are you up for that upgrade? It’s about time!

After reviewing the features, pros, cons and making a brief comparison among other products, we can say that the ​Washlet A200 Elongated Bidet Toilet Seat​ is a decent choice if you want to take your toilet to a whole new level.

It comes with essential features that most electric bidet toilet seats include so you will surely not regret choosing this product.

However, if you are also after the warm air dryer feature or the automatic deodorizer to keep your toilet smelling fresh, the midrange units will be the better choice for you. The top of the range products is way too luxurious which comes with advanced features like the automatic open and close lid, the night light, and the eWater+ which uses electrolyzed water to cleanse and disinfect the seat after every use.

To make a perfect choice, make sure to think about what you really need. You do not have to spend too much if you want to take it to the next level.

Get to know the features to understand what you are getting and compare your options before finally making that choice.

  1. Hi there. I really like your article about the Toto bidet toilet seat. I personally think it is very smart for people to have these in their homes. not only does it save you on toilet paper cost but its hands free. for example, at restaurants they have hand sensor soap, water and hand dryers. it is more sanitary to have hands free options.

  2. Hi!

    Thank you very much for this review of the TOTO Washlet A200 Elongated Bidet Toilet Seat.

    It looks amazing and the features are great, especially for people that have limited mobility.

    I was wondering how you can install this toilet seat in your home. Is this something you can do on your own, or do you need somebody to install it? And does it fit to every common toilet, or only to specific ones?

    Are there any other places to purchase this Toilet Seat, as the amazon link shows that there are no available seats anymore.

    I would be happy to know some alternative pages where to buy this product for the best price 🙂

    Best regards,

  3. Wow , this looks like the ultimate toilet seat. I love the heated seat option. No one likes to sit on a cold bowl. My question is, are these difficult to clean? The bidet seat that we have now does not have all the options this seat has but it is a pain to clean in between small open areas. Thanks for your help!

  4. I see that bidets are becoming more and more popular in the United States. One of the reasons I was excited about traveling to Europe is to experience the comfort of a bidet. Now I don’t have to.

    I didn’t know they came with so many features. I wonder how much a person could save by not having to buy toilet paper.

    Hi, Mia,

    You can install the TOTO bidet for yourself by following our guide here, or you may want to consider getting your local plumber or using Amazon installation services to have the outlet installed – the choice is yours really.

    Yes, this particular TOTO bidet is designed to fit most toilets, however, I would recommend that you also take a look at the official fit chart here just to make sure.

    The Amazon link to purchase this bidet has them as being available now and you can also visit the official TOTO website to make your purchase, but know that the best price in available on Amazon.

    Please let me know if you have additional questions. I hope this helps and thank you for reading and leaving your questions 🙂

    Hey, Nicole,

    Yes, TOTO are manufacturing some of the best quality toilet seats on the market today.  They are definitely one of the leaders in the Bidet Toilet Seats Industry.

    And no, they are not very difficult to clean at all.  In fact, read the proper steps on how to clean a bidet toilet seat here and you will see how easy it is.

  7. Advance My House

    A whole lot of money can be saved per year when you make the switch over to a Bidet Toilet Seat. 

    You will find that many of them are being manufactured with air dryers and they are getting more advanced each year.

  8. Hi there,

    Great article!

    I used to live in Europe a few years ago, and there, every house has a bidet in the bathroom. Today, I live out of Europe, and unfortunately, there is no bidet. My new house is under construction, and I will definitely put a bidet in each bathroom. The Washlet A200 seems to be comfortable and useful. I will show it to my husband since we already plan to buy several bidets. I would like to know though if there is a warranty, I didn’t see it anywhere in the article. If so, what is the limit?

    Thank you very much for this useful article!

  9. Advance My House

    Thank you for your comment and question, Daniella,

    This TOTO A200 bidet toilet seat comes with a standard 1 year warranty.

    You can get more information when you scroll down on this page and go to the product information section.

    All the best to you and your husband as you get your new home in order.

  10. Jim Holzgrefe

    Thanks for your review of the Toto Washlet A200 Elongated Toilet Seat. As a real estate agent I can say that we are seeing more and more new construction house bathrooms in my market area offering a bidet. Your review offers information that will help owners upgrade to that market trend.


  11. Well this Bidet Toilet Seat looks amazing. I have not had a lot of experience with bidets except for when I was stationed in Japan. I think that they are wonderful, but here in the U.S. they almost seem taboo for some reason. I like the idea of everything being hands free. I don’t think I saw a cost for the seat anywhere, what is the cost of the unit?

  12. Wow,
    We sure have come a long way when it comes to toilet seats, I can remember the outside toilets at our camp when I was a kid how cold those seats would get.

    This does sound like the perfect toilet seat for every family, I was wondering is this toilet seat a one size fits all or not?

  13. Tony Spagnolia

    Hi there,

    I am not too familiar with bidets but am interested in the savings. I live in the United States and am renovating my home currently. Can I easily swap out a toilet or just the seat on my toilet with one or do I need additional plumbing to complete the job?



  14. Advance My House

    Hey Jeffery.

    Yes, it’s true that we are advancing in every way with toilet seats. Bidet toilets are the true modern way of using the toilet.

    This particular TOTO Bidet seat is suitable for all body sizes.

  15. Advance My House

    Hey Nate!

    You can find the cost of the bidet toilet seat when you hover over the image or click on it.


  16. Advance My House

    Hey Tony,

    You can easily swap out your current toilet seat with this TOTO Bidet seat. This article will help you with removing and replacing one without hiring a plumber.

    Do let us know if you need any further advice.

  17. TheToysThatTeach

    As someone who is trying to minimize my carbon foot print, this seems like a very eco-friendly purchase that can help lower or diminish my family’s paper product use.
    I love how you talked about how adjustable it is with the pressure and water temperature. My question is, are you able to adjust the controls on the actual seat itself as well as the remote? My concern is that my young children could get a hold of it and make changes or get hurt.

    Thank you for your response!


  18. Advance My House

    Hi Jenny,

    With this TOTO A200 Washlet Model, the controls are only located on the wireless remote, which can be easily mounted at a safe height & out of the reach of small children.

  19. Christopher Lewis

    The first thing that anyone should take into account is the water pressure. My wife and I bought another brand, and it only had two settings. Big no-no. I like that the TOTO offers 5 settings, and quite frankly wish I had found this earlier. Its funny, you don’t normally put a lot of thought into these kind of things, even though you are likely to have them for years.

  20. Advance My House

    Yeah, I know what you mean, Chris.

    It’s a good thing that you are now more educated when it comes to choosing the right bidet for your home.

    If you need any assistance going forward, do let us know by sending us a message.

  21. I see that this has an adjustable water temperature control. How does it work? Does the seat heat up the water, or is it necessary to connect a hot water supply to the seat? I’m curious to know how much plumbing will be necessary to install this, and if I will need to hire a professional.

  22. Advance My House

    Hi CJ508, The TOTO A200 Washlet has a tank that will heat the water. You will only need to connect the washlet to your incoming water supply to the toilet.

    So the water temperature and actual seat temp are individually adjustable.

    Installing the washlet is also quite easy and does not require a plumber (unless you really want to).

    The first thing you want to do is Prepare the Area > Install the washlet seat mounting bracket >slide the washlet onto the bracket, then finally connect the washlet’s hose. It’s really that simple.

    All detailed instructions will be included with the Washlet , so no need to worry.

    If you do have any other questions or concerns, please contact us.

  23. Claudia H. Blanton

    It is funny and timely that I ran across your blog post because about a week ago, my husband and I saw a similar type of toilet in Lowes when we were working on a different bathroom project. He was slightly confused by the whole thing, but I tried to explain a bidet toilet to him, without much success. And I would really like to have one, but first, he must be on board too!

    I am going to forward him this article and see if it helps to get my point across.

    Thanks for your help


  24. Hello, thanks for a in depth review of the TOTO A200. The base product seems sufficient but I must admit I think I would opt for the middle of the road Bidet. I think the upgrade with the added features would be the better choice for my needs. I know my family would appreciate the room deodorizer. Lol

  25. Advance My House

    Hey, Kevin,

    Glad to know that you found the review of the TOTO A200 helpful. It is one of our best rated bidet toilet seats, and is becoming more and more popular on the market.

    You will be satisfied with your purchase.

    Thanks again for stopping by and if you have any questions, please ask.

  26. The TOTO Washlet A200 Elongated Bidet toilet seat is an excellent choice. I am really liking the price. There is over $200 in savings. I had my heart set on the warm water feature so I don’t know if I will get this one. Do you have any recommendation for a bidet toilet seat with the warm water feature at a lower price like this one?

  27. I have been to Europe many times and my relatives there have bidets. I think they are wonderful and I would love to have one of these. How hard is it to convert from a conventional toilet to this type of bidet? I see it is plugged in and I do not have an outlet by the toilet. Is this a hard thing to accommodate as well?

  28. Advance My House

    Hi, Jonathan!

    It is true that the TOTO A200 is a great choice with decent savings.

    And just so it’s clear for you, it also comes with the warm water feature, so it will be a good choice, since this is something that you seem to be most interested in.

    The Smart Bidet SB 1000 is what we recommend as an alternative to the TOTO as it relates to a lower price.

    I hope this help you to make a great decision!


  29. Advance My House

    Hi, Matt’s Mom,

    I am glad that you have become motivated to get a bidet in your home. This is always a smart decision to make.

    The process of converting from a conventional toilet to a bidet requires that you follow a process.

    You can view the step by step guide here and follow along to get this done properly.

    You would also need to get an outlet installed near the bidet toilet seat in order to get it working.

    You can contact your local electrician to get this sorted out. It’s really not a complicated process.

    I hope this helps you out, and feel free to stop by again if you need any further advice.
