The Swash Bidet Seat and LumaWarm Heated Nightlight Toilet Seat must be plugged into a standard GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interupt) outlet. The GFCI outlet is generally required in bathrooms, kitchens, and near sources of water. Swash and LumaWarm users typically need an outlet within three and a half feet of the toilet fixture; though running an extension cord is perfectly acceptable as well. We recommend a minimum of 15 amps for the circuit for the Swash Bidet Seat.
The Swash Ecoseat, FreshSpa easy bidet attachment, and FreshSpa dual temperature bidet attachement do not require an electrical outlet in the bathroom.
If you don't have a GFCI outlet in the bathroom, you can easily purchase an inexpensive GFCI adapter on Amazon.com by clicking here.
While we recommend installing a dedicated outlet near your toilet fixture, If you need to use an extension cord with an existing outlet, we suggest you use the shortest cord length available. The extension cord should only be a 3 prong heavy duty cord that can handle a 15-20 amp load with a gauge of 10-12. To complete the Swash Bidet Seat installation, use with a cord concealing kit such as the one shown here:
An optimum outlet placement would be behind the toilet fixture on the right or left hand side depending on which product you purchase.
