Many bidet seats on the market today are full of bells and whistles, and you can’t move for fear of setting off some sort of unknown function.

Luckily, for those after something a bit more simple, non-electric bidet seats exist.

They have the same basic functions as an electric bidet seat but don’t use any energy.

Instead, the toilet seats are powered by water pressure. You might be thinking – does this make them weak? Don’t worry, they can still deliver a mighty spray.

Any bidet is a good eco-friendly and hygienic alternative to toilet paper.

With a seemingly endless stream of products, it can be confusing trying to decide which bidet seat is best for you. It’s certainly worth doing your research as most units are non-returnable.

I’ve created this guide to the best non-electric bidet toilet seats to try and make your choice a little easier.

Best Non Electric Bidet Toilet Seats

These are my picks for the best non-electric bidets.

There’s a good range here to suit all budgets and lifestyles.

Brondell Swash Ecoseat Non-Electric Bidet Toilet Seat

The Brondell Swash Wash is the best option if you’re looking for a warm water non-electric bidet seat as it works with both hot and cold water. Perfect if you’re living somewhere with cold winters.

The seat comes with a special hot water pipe that you can install using your faucet water supply.

Just make sure to conceal the pipe properly or it could become a trip hazard!

Apart from this, the seat functions much like a standard bidet seat. It comes with dual self-cleaning nozzles for front and rear cleansing and has a soft close lid to prevent accidental slams.

Different knobs control the temperature and function of the bidet so you won’t get confused.

There’s also a cold water only option of this bidet if you’re not fussed about the hot water.

Pros
  • can have hot or cold water
  • self-cleaning, retractable nozzles
  • dual nozzles (front and rear)
  • soft close seat
  • thin profile
Cons
  • hot water supply means toilet has to be near sink

Kohler Puretide K-5724 Elongated Manual Bidet Toilet Seat

This manual bidet seat from Kohler has a unique control mechanism.

The seats operated by a handle rather than the traditional knob. You push the handle up and down and the nozzle moves backwards and forwards.

This allows you to transition smoothly between the front and rear cleaning modes and also means you can adjust the wand’s position until it’s perfectly aimed.

Twisting the handle will adjust the pressure. The spray wand also has a pulsating setting where it’ll move backwards and forwards, spraying water as it does.

The nozzle automatically self cleans after every use, and the seat has quick-release hinges, so it’s easy to take off and clean.

I’ve linked the elongated version of this seat below. If you want the round version click here. Kohler also has a wide range of electric bidet seats that I’ve reviewed in a separate post.

Pros
  • unique function control handle
  • automatic self-cleaning nozzle
  • retractable nozzle
  • quick release hinges
  • pulsating mode
Cons
  • single nozzle design
  • not slim-line
  • no t-adaptor shut off valve

American Standard Aqua Wash Non-Electric Bidet Seat

American Standard’s non-electric bidet comes with only one spray wand.

However, the wand’s nozzle is detachable, and there are several different spray pattern options so you can pick your favorite.

You can adjust the wand position using the rotating switch on the side of the toilet. This switch also controls the pressure.

The seat has slow-close hinges and a button you can press to quickly release the whole seat. This makes cleaning very quick and straightforward.

The seat is made to fit elongated toilets, so make sure to check your toilet type before purchasing.

Pros
  • detachable nozzles
  • several different spray patterns
  • slow close seat
  • quick release button
Cons
  • no round option
  • no t-adaptor shut off valve

Hibbent Non-Electric Bidet Seat

The Hibbent manual bidet seat has two size options, one to fit an elongated seat and one to fit a round seat.

Both sizes come with a soft closing lid and two self-cleaning, retractable nozzles.

One nozzle is angled for rear cleaning, and the other is angled for front cleaning. They also have different spray patterns to ensure a comfortable experience.

The function knob is easy to use and controls for both pressure and angle.

You have to push the switch forward for rear cleaning and backwards for front cleaning, which seems a little counter-intuitive to me.

This could lead to confusion for any guests who aren’t used to using the bidet. But I’m only nitpicking!

Pros
  • self-cleaning, retractable nozzles
  • dual nozzles (front and rear)
  • soft close seat
  • two size options
Cons
  • unintuitive controls

GenieBidet Non-Electric Bidet Seat

Genie Bidets are known for being well-made products, and their non-electric bidet seat is no different.

The bidet will fit most modern toilets, and there are two different sizes to fit either round or elongated seats. Both the seat and the lid have slow closing hinges.

There are two different nozzles that retract after use and produce an aerated spray of ambient temperature. The spray is both efficient and environmentally friendly.

It comes with a metal t-valve that has an on/off switch. This means you can turn the water supply to the bidet seat off and stop anyone messing around with it.

Pros
  • two size options
  • slow close seat and lid
  • aerated ambient temperature spray
  • two retractable self-cleaning nozzles
Cons
  • plastic hose

Bio Bidet Slim Non Electric Toilet Seat

The Bio Bidet non-electric bidet seat has a more compact design than most, measuring just 4 inches at the back.

This means it’s comfortable to sit on, and you won’t feel like the seat is pushing you forwards, which is a common complaint with bidet toilet seats.

It has a chrome-plated lever that controls the retractable nozzles and the water pressure. There are two nozzles for both front and rear washing.

The slow closing seat has a battery operated night light with two brightness levels for ease of use in the dark. Having a nightlight is pretty rare for a non-electric bidet.

Pros
  • slim design
  • dual nozzle design
  • night light
  • slow closing lid and seat
Cons
  • only one size option

Alpha Bidet One V2 Manual Bidet Seat

The ultra-slim bidet seat from Alpha is just 2.4 inches thick but still feels robust.

Both the seat and the lid have slow closing hinges. And despite being so thin, the seat offers a battery-operated LED nightlight that you can use for going to the toilet in the dark.

The light has two different brightness settings to pick from.

As with other bidet seats, it has two self-cleaning nozzles. One with a forceful spray for rear washing and a softer spray for feminine washing.

However, unlike other bidets I’ve featured, on this one, you push the switch backwards for rear washing and forwards for front washing. I think this is more intuitive.

It’s made with durable brass valves and a metal braided hose. Plus, the nozzles are thicker than average so they’ll last longer.

Some users have noted that the toilet seat has a slight blue tinge and therefore doesn’t match their toilet color. This is something to consider if aesthetics are important to you.

Pros
  • self-cleaning retractable nozzles
  • front and rear wash settings
  • night light
  • intuitive controls
  • slim
  • durable
Cons
  • seat has a blue tinge

Luxe Bidet Neo 120 Bidet Attachment

While this isn’t technically a toilet seat, it’s still worthy of a place on my list. It’s a great option for anyone wanting a cheap non-electric bidet.

It features a retractable nozzle that automatically moves behind the built-in guard gate to keep it clean when not in use.

The controls are easy to reach and understand, allowing you to adjust the pressure and clean the nozzles.

This particular model only has one nozzle, but Luxe has a whole range of different non-electric bidet seat attachments to suit any budget.

For those on a tight budget, I suggest the Luxe Neo 110. If you want dual nozzles, then the Luxe Neo 180 is the best pick for you. And finally, if you’re looking for a more premium product, the Luxe Neo 320 allows both hot and cold water connections.

Pros
  • 18-month warranty
  • retractable, self-cleaning nozzle
  • guard gate
  • budget-friendly
  • different models available
  • easy to use controls
Cons
  • only one nozzle (on this model)

Astor Bidet Non-Electric Bidet Toilet Seat

Another toilet seat attachment but again I thought it was worth mentioning because of the budget-friendly price.

Astor is a simply designed bidet with one nozzle and one easy to reach knob which controls the pressure.

Although there is no separate nozzle for cleaning your front and rear, users have reported that merely changing your position on the toilet seat works well enough.

All of the internal valves used are made with 100% brass ensuring high quality and long-lasting durability.

Pros
  • 12-month warranty
  • 100% brass valves so very durable
  • budget-friendly
Cons
  • only one nozzle
  • no self cleaning mode

BB-I3000 BioBidet Premium Bidet Seat

This non-electric bidet seat has a few features that set it apart from other options.

The first thing you’ll notice is the joystick controls. This design means you can see what you’re doing, unlike with switches that are located on the side of the toilet seat.

Moving the joystick backwards and forward will activate either the rear or front nozzle, and decide the water pressure.

There is also a ‘vortex’ wash setting where the spray nozzles will move backwards and forwards for a full-coverage wash.

Last but not least this bidet has a soap dispenser. You can fill the soap reservoir with a mild feminine wash and use it to leave feeling fresh after every use!

Bio Bidet’s are able to accommodate more weight than other popular bidet brands, so if you’re a heavier user this is a good choice.

Pros
  • easy to use joystick control
  • vortex wash setting
  • soap dispenser
  • two nozzles
  • retractable self-cleaning nozzles
Cons
  • bulky design

Benefits Of A Non-Electric Bidet Seat

Bidets come in several different forms. There are the traditional stand-alone bidets, handheld bidets that look like mini showers, and even portable bidets.

If you’re interested in the different types, why not take a look at my guides to the best portable bidets and best handheld bidet sprayers.

In this article, the focus is on non-electric bidet toilet seats. These are seats that replace your standard toilet seat and have the added benefit of a built-in spray wand.

The main rival of non-electric bidets are electric bidet seats. Let’s take a look at some of the differences.

Advantages of non-electric bidet seats vs electric bidet seats

  • typically cheaper than their electric counterparts
  • better for the environment as they don’t use any electricity
  • no need for an electrical socket near your toilet
  • easier to install and maintain
  • less likely to malfunction
  • easy to master control mechanisms
  • slimmer designs

Disadvantages of non-electric bidet seats vs electric bidet seats

  • fewer features such as seat warming
  • no drying function
  • less suited for those with mobility issues
  • most only have cold water settings

Compared to handheld bidet sprayers, which are the other main option for home installation, non-electric bidet seats are more comfortable to use because you don’t have to worry about getting the spray hose in the correct position, it’s already there.

They also tend to be less messy because the chance of misfiring is minimal!

Furthermore, you don’t have the hassle of turning off the t-valve after every use as you do with handheld bidets. I explain why in my article on how to use a bidet sprayer.

Who should buy a non-electric bidet seat?

They’re great options for anyone on a budget who wants the convenience of sitting down on the toilet and simply pressing a button to clean themselves. Or anyone who doesn’t have the luxury of an electrical outlet near their toilet, such as if you want to install a bidet in an RV.

They also tend to be easier for kids to use and understand, which is why I think these are the best type of bidets for families.

How To Install A Non-Electric Bidet Seat

Most non-electric bidet toilet seats can be installed in the same way and require no tools or plumbing knowledge. It takes the average person between 30 and 40 minutes.

They come with three main parts:

  • Toilet seat (already assembled)
  • T-valve
  • Connector pipe

Watch this short video to see how all the parts fit together:

Non-Electric Bidet Buying Guide

A bidet toilet seat is something you’ll use multiple times a day, every day, and spend a considerable amount of time sitting on.

In fact, the average person will spend 92 days of their life sitting on the toilet – so you want to make sure you have a toilet seat you love.

I’ve taken a look at some of the features which you should consider before purchasing a non-electric bidet seat.

Size

Perhaps the most important thing to check is whether the seat will fit on your toilet.

There are two main types of toilet, a round toilet, and an elongated toilet. Some bidet seats have options to fit both, while others only fit one.

Measure your toilets dimensions and check these against the bidets dimensions to ensure a snug fit. If you have a round toilet I have a good guide on bidets for round toilets here.

Another thing to think about related to size is how bulky/slim you want the toilet seat to be. In general, the more features a toilet seat has, the bulkier it tends to be.

Handle Design

The handle design and how easy it is to control are good things to think about, especially if children or older people will be using the bidet seat.

Most non-electric bidet seats have a basic rotating switch on the side of the toilet. This switch controls both the spray functions and the water pressure.

Others have more unique designs. Some have upright controls so you can see what you’re doing, and others have long handles, which can be easier to grip for some people.

Nozzles / Spray patterns

The nozzles are a central working part of any bidet seat. The seats will either come with one or two nozzles.

Two-nozzle bidet seats are the best choice for women because they have a dedicated feminine wash spray wand, as well as the standard rear wash wand.

The nozzles tend to have different spray patterns and pressures, which are catered to their intended use.

Seats with one nozzle can be less suited for women because they don’t all have a dedicated front wash setting.

However, some one nozzle designs come with different nozzle heads or have an adjustable wand, which can be moved to suit feminine washing.

Extra Features

Some bidets offer extra things like night lights or hot water supply. These bonus features could give major brownie points in your eyes, so keep an eye out for them.
