Looking to add on a bidet / washlet. The upstairs bathroom has a GFCI close by, but the downstairs does not.

For the upstairs bathroom, I'm leaning towards the Toto Washlet. But also came across the Bio Bidet. We used the Toto Washlet at the Hyatt and it was pretty nice. But reading up on the Bio Bidet, it has more stainless steel and a better self cleaning function.

Experience with either in a long term setting? Any others we should look at?

Anything for the bathroom downstairs with no GFCI?

We have Toto washlets and they have been fantastic. The only self cleaning function is the wand will rise itself with water before and after you use it. We clorox it every so often but have never had an issue with it being dirty. The way the water sprays and the nozzle is angled, I don't think splash back really happens. And you're not going to be shitting while the wand is extended anyway.

For the bathroom with no outlet, you could always get one of the cold water units that use water pressure to extend the wand, but then you lose out on the heated water, seat and spray settings. I'd just have an outlet put in so you could run a plug in washlet.

Just about every household in Japan has a Toto bidet. I highly recommend them as mine has worked without flaw for the last 3 or so years.

LOVE the nightlight on our BioBidet 6800, night time pee means no lights turned on bc you have a target

Seem that Toto is the way to go. No issues with maintenance? And longevity?

Clean it as you would a normal toilet seat. My cleaners haven't done anything different to it and it still looks new. There are quick release tabs on the side so you can remove it every couple of months to clean underneath where it connect to the toilet if you want to.

I bought the BB2000 a month ago or so, no regrets but nothing to compare it too. Squeaky clean butthole.
