coway bidetmega stainless steel nozzle

Why a bidet’s stainless steel nozzle is important

Bidets: stainless steel nozzles versus plastic nozzles.


Bidet wash nozzles come in a variety of materials these days

From plastic to aluminum coated plastic, stainless steel coated plastic to stainless steel itself—the materials with which bidet nozzles are made do not have equal benefits. For hygiene and quality, nothing can beat stainless steel.


Stainless steel is more hygienic

Using a bidet, you’re already ahead of the curve on bathroom hygiene.  But, what about the hygiene of the actual bidet itself?  All electronic bidet seats utilize self-cleaning nozzles which helps keep them clean between uses. The benefit of stainless steel nozzles over plastic and aluminum is due to its uniform surface, and cleanability.  Having no pores or cracks to collect grime, bacteria or fungus, stainless steel cleans faster and more completely than plastic or aluminum. This is why stainless steel is the most widely accepted material in restaurant kitchens and food handling. It’s also why every Bidetmega toilet seat is made with a stainless steel nozzle.


Quality materials make a quality build

It’s common sense that construction from steel would be higher quality and longer lasting than plastic. That’s why most luxury bidet seats are built with metal nozzles as opposed to plastic. Still, there are some brands that are clinging to plastic construction as their default. Make sure you do your research, so you can find the best value in your bidet choice.


Coway bidets are only built with stainless steel nozzles

It’s surprising, but some of the most recognizable bidet brands with heavy price tags are built with plastic nozzles. That’s because it was the industry standard for so many decades. Every model of Bidetmega is engineered to the highest level of quality and hygiene, so you can enjoy a consistent, clean bidet experience every time.

1Coway air purifiers have been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.
→ Tested with Airmega Aim, 100, 150, 160, AP-1216L, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 200M, Icon, IconS, 230, 240, 250, 250 Art, 250S, 300, 300S, 400, 400S, ProX

299.97% of viruses, bacteria, fungi and pollen were verified to be removed from the air for Coway air purifiers which have Green True HEPA™ filter applied based on the Japan Food Research Laboratories(JFRL) testing according to JEM 1467 standard.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.

4The concentration of ammonia, acetaldehyde and acetic acid were proven to be removed within 30 minutes by FCG Research Institute, Inc. Human Life Science Lab. It is not a demonstration result in the actual use space. Not all odors and gases may be supported. → Tested with Coway Airmega 150, 160, AP-1512HH, AP-1512HHS, 400, 400S

5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
