  • Bio Bidet wants to mass produce a water-powered toilet
    seat with night lights and bidet functionality. 
  • The company has raised more than $36,000 since Monday
    to start making the toilet seats. 
  • Bio Bidet’s smart toilets have heated seats and warm
    water, but previous products have all required electricity to
  • Next, Bio Bidet will consider creating a round version
    of its newest product, as the toilet seat is only available in
    an elongated shape.

An Illinois-based bidet company raised enough money this week to
begin mass producing water-powered toilet seats featuring night
lights, bidet functionality, and a slow-closing lid.

Bio Bidet — which sells
products such as electronic bidet seats and toilets with bidet
functions — launched an
Indiegogo campaign
on Monday with the goal of raising
$10,000. The 10-year-old company reached the goal overnight, and

water pressure. 

This “Slim Zero” toilet seat comes with multiple features
normally found on electronic seats, such as the night light and
slow-closing option, but it uses a battery compartment instead,
Amburgey said. The toilet seat is on sale for $59 as an early

, which raised money for a smart
toilet that requires electricity to run. Some of the people who
supported the first fundraiser said they wanted an alternative
that did not require an outlet. 

Americans use
about 36 billion rolls
of toilet paper each year, which
requires about 15 million trees, 100 billion gallons of water,
and other resources. To reduce the use of toilet paper,
Amburgey said Bio Bidet is focusing on raising awareness of
bidets as viable alternatives.

“Our whole thing is we believe water does it better,” Amburgey
