Eco-Nova Bidet Review 2023
The Eco-Nova bidet has made quite a splash since first coming on the market in 2020.
An update from the discontinued Nova-1000, this elongated bidet seat has many valuable features and a high quality design that separates it from other bides in its price range.
Our top bidet seat of 2023 is also very user friendly. We didn't really need to use the Eco Nova Bidet manual, but just in case you wanted to give it a look, we've included it here.
The adjustable temperature and pressure washes are everything you’d expect from a high quality bidet seat, but we’re going to start by highlighting some of its unique features.
High Quality Design
What makes the Eco-Nova stand out from other bidets in its class is a sleek, sturdy design, coupled with advanced technology. The heated seat is super sleek and feels very comfortable to sit on.
While some bidet seats can be bulky eye-sores, the Eco-Nova is ultra sleek and stylish. It’s also composed of anion-type nano antibacterial polypropylene, which basically just means it’s a higher quality plastic that’s less prone to bacteria buildup.
A sittable lid can be important if you’re used to using that space in your bathroom for other tasks like helping someone take a bath. Despite boasting thin composition, the Eco-Nova has a sittable lid with a weight limit of 400 pounds, the highest weight rating of any seat on the market.
So not only are you getting a thin seat and lid that blends in seamlessly with your bathroom’s decor, it’s also sturdy and antimicrobial.
The Eco-Nova also fits both one and two-piece toilets, as well as toilets that feature a "French Curve," so it's design is also versatile.
French curve is a design found on some more modern toilets, where the tank connects to the bowl in a concave, curved appearance. Some customers prefer this classy design, but it can be problematic when attaching a bidet.
A toilet with a French curve is pictured below:
The Cascade 3000 is another bidet toilet seat seat we sell that also fits one and two-piece toilets and those featuring a French Curve.
UV and Silver Nano Sterilization
Now let’s move on to cleaning technology. Some electric bidets that offer a sterilizing feature usually only have one kind, but the Eco-Nova utilizes two distinct types.
First, a silver nano filtration is applied to all the water that passes through the unit, so any water that touches your body or rinses the nozzle has been sterilized with trace amounts of silver.
The second sterilization occurs after the wash is completed and comes in the form of Ultraviolet (UV) light, which is used on the wand and nozzles. UV light is a powerful, but safe way to sterilize.
The rays from UV light contain high amounts of energy that destroy all microorganisms it comes into contact with. The DNA and RNA of viruses, bacteria, molds, fungus or yeast are actually scrambled. The cell wall of the organism is penetrated, destroying the cell's ability to reproduce.
All of that science sounds pretty intense, but UV sterilization is highly regulated and studied by the FDA and is deemed safe for consumers.
A clean and sterile bidet seat is important and we are impressed with the lengths to which the Eco-Nova goes above and beyond in this department.
The Eco-Nova also offers one of the best warm air dryers on the market. While some air dryers on bidet seats offer varying degrees of effectiveness, the air dryer on this bidet seat actually works! It comes with four settings, off, low, medium and high, so you can choose to not use it as well.
Radio Frequency Remote Technology
Also worth noting is the stainless remote control, which uses radio frequency instead of infrared to send signals to the bidet’s software.
Sometimes in smaller bathrooms with dark walls, the signals from a bidet’s remote will absorb into the wall and not bounce back to the seat. With the Eco-Nova’s radio frequency technology you can rest assured that the signal from the remote will always make it back to the seat, no matter the size of your bathroom or the color of the walls.
You can also operate the remote from outside of the bathroom if you were helping a loved one and also wanted to give them privacy.
Unlimited Instant Warm Water
The Eco-Nova also offers unlimited warm water from its tankless, instant water-heating system. Most bidet seats that use a tank water heater only provide around thirty seconds of warm water before it eventually runs cold.
Tankless water heaters will often have a burst of cold water at the beginning, followed by unlimited warm water. The Eco-Nova’s instant, tankless heating provides warm water from the start that never runs out, a valuable upgrade for sure.
The variable water pressure, while not being the absolute strongest on the market, is more than sufficient and definitely gets the job done.

What the Eco-Nova Lacks
While the Eco-Nova is superior in many ways over most seats in its price range, it does lack a few features that you might be looking for.
For starters it does not come with an auto deodorizer. Also missing is an enema wash for constipation. Finally, this seat does not offer an auto open/close lid for a complete hands-off experience (although it does have a slow closing lid and seat).

Also, keep in mind this product is only available in elongated, so there is no Eco-Nova bidet in round seat size.
Eco-Nova Bidet Review - Conclusion
All in all, the Eco-Nova is a very high quality product that exceeds all expectations in its price range. Although it might not have every single feature you might be looking for, what it does have is more than enough to keep even the most discerning bidet shopper happy.
We'll recap the pros and cons of the Eco-Nova Bidet Toilet Seat here:
- Instant, unlimited warm water
- Ultra sleek yet sturdy design
- Two kinds of self sterilization
- Radio frequency remote
- No deodorizer
- No Enema wash
- No auto open/close lid
While Nova is a brand that doesn’t pull the same weight as someone like TOTO or Brondell yet, you’d be missing out if you didn’t give this hidden gem a try. After all, it does come with a 30 Day Risk Free Trial.
While it doesn't have every feature you could possibly want in a bidet seat, for its price range, it has more than most.
