    Can he get more?

    I have a daughter with serious mobility issues, and with my lower back surgery, a couple of these would really help my family out.

    I am intrigued that there are so much competition in this product area.

    The Kohler and Toto seem to be priced alike.

    The Kohler lights the bowl at night, but lacks motorized open and close as compared to the Toto.

    The Swash is the cheapest on eBay, and has a battery powered model, but I am not keen too having to open a battery compartment seeing the use and germs of this product.

    I could almost buy two swash 550's for the price of one C3-200.

    It's not about how much time you spend crapping, it's about people who have pain bending over to wipe, or perhaps they don't have enough mobility to bend and wipe. I know it's hard for bubbly puppies to unstand, but when your lower back is all fused together, it's a biotch reaching down there.

    Also here's a test for you. Do the math.... how many rolls of TP does your household use in a year? How much money is that? How many trees is that? How much impact on the environment is that?

    Here's the one I am considering. I don't need a powered seat or seat heater. Just a bidet.

    http://www.brondell.com/products/SwashEcoseat250.php

    I like the presentation on the environmental impacts of TP. The wands are hydro powered, the remote is battery op., so no need for electricity.

    List price $350... $238 on eBay.

    I think this is a very useful thread, we have more than one disabled member here at DBS Talk.

    Lets just keep it from being X-Rated.

    I agree.....I was thinking about just that - how technology can be used by those who really need it day in and day out. Things we all tend to take for granted.

    But some of the side comments.....oy vay....:eek2:

    Ah I'm single so I go through a roll about once a week or two.
    How much water will one of these use per flush and cleanse? I just wonder which is the more renewable resource, wood pulp or water? Hmmm.

    Oh and the power resources needed to operate these high-tech toilets.

    There is one very inportant question that is still unasked...

    How does Al Bundy rate this toilet?

    There is another reason for these. While bubble puppies might insensitively lick themselves in public, other people find bidet's much preferable to dry wipe. More sanitary, more cleansing, more refreshing.

    And knowing about Jason's daughter, I suspect his family will find a bidet seat to be very helpful in keeping her healthier.

    So as Jason already knows, I say go for it. :)

    (Don't go battery. Ewwwww.)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    But don't you still have to dry yourself of the water?

    I believe that it is eligible for Medicare coverage....as well as some private insurance plans....but you'd have to check and verify that to make sure before ordering.

    Often, the manufacturers of devices for the disabled have knowledge of that.
