The word bidet is now becoming a universal term. And, most probably, you have encountered a basin fixed on toilet sits that has water nozzles. The seat is supposed to clean you after you have used the bathroom. Bidets are common in European, South American, and Asian countries. As of now, they are increasingly becoming common in the United States.
What makes a home bidet relevant to most of us is the reason we wash our hands even with detergents after using the Bathroom. In the real sense, the hands are not the dirtiest place. Still, they have to be cleaned. On the other hand, the excretory channels are by far the dirtiest. The priority for cleaning with water and detergent should be focused on this first before washing hands. If you have high-quality bidet models with inbuilt driers, they will clean you with hot water and dry you up. Isn’t this more hygienic?
Typically, a bidet is a basin or receptacle that can be sat on so as to wash the human genitals and the anus. It's fixed to the toilet water supply, mostly the flushing faucets and a drainage channel. Since bidets are designed to promote personal hygiene after defecation, sexual intercourse, or whatever reason makes your genital dirty; they are subject to local hygienic regulation. To some extent, bidets for apartments may be used to wash feet.
Contemporary has nozzles whose spray can be directed to areas that require washing precisely. You also may savor hot water cleanses with electronic bathroom bidets that feature built-in water heaters. They also have heated seating, night lighting, air fresheners, and hot air dryers.
Originally, bidets were separate porcelain extensions located beside the toilet (this is the awkward-sink variety). To utilize these self-contained bidets, one had to use the bathroom and straddle on the attachment for cleaning. This bidet design is still used in Europe.
To use a bidet, use the toilet and wipe yourself as usual though once. If you are using a standalone bidet, you can face the controls so as to control the temperatures and flow of water. If you are going to straddle on a bidet, you have to remove your pants. If you are using hot water, you have to adjust it to tolerable temperatures.
Match your nether regions with the spraying water and straddle the bidet while perching on the rim. Even though many bidets lack seats, they are nevertheless intended to be used; you simply perch on the rims.
Release the jet valve slowly until enough pressure is created to cleanse the nether regions of any residual feces. The bidet for your toilet may lack jets but feature a sprayer that feeds a bowl the same way as a sink tap does. If you come across any of these, wash up using your hands and detergent.
It is important to dry yourself properly after cleaning your anogenital regions. The cloth towel that comes with some bidets is not to be used, however. This towel is exclusively used for hand drying. You may utilize the bidet's dryer. If the one you're dealing with doesn't have one, you should use toilet paper. Remember, toilet papers should not be thrown at the bidet. This might block the bidet and impede its efficiency.
By the use of a flathead screwdriver, unmount the old toilet seat. Switch off your toilet water supply. You have to flush the toilet to get rid of the water remaining inside the tank.
Your bidet for a round toilet comes with a T-Shaped valve. Its function is to divert water. Now unbolt the supply hose from the toilets tank. Carry a bucket around as leakages may occur. Fix the T-valve where you unbolted the hose. Lastly, attach the supply hose to the T-valves bottom.
The next step will be mounting the Bidet to the toilet. The Bidet will have a plastic mounting plate that has to be positioned on the rim's back. As such, it should align with the existing screw holes. With the plate mounted, slide the Bidet in it till it assumes the right position.
You then have to fix it to a water supply. The bidet has its hose to be fixed to the T valve opening. If the connections are safe, open the shut-off valve to test the installations done.
Just like above, shut off the supply valve and empty the flushing tank. Disengage the cold-water hose and the element and remove the T-valve from the toilet water supply. Now reinstall the water supply to the flush tank.
The remaining part is to disconnect the element by shutting the control valve below the sink. Then turn off the tap and empty the pipes. You have to disengage the warm water and the element. Lastly, the T-valve should be unmounted from the water supply.
Once done, you got to remove the element from the toilet, clean it and replace the seat.
Every toilet should have a bidet, and this one doesn’t disappoint. With two angles, and a self clean function, it meets the needs of my family’s 1 bathroom usage. Simple to install, because I did it while on the phone with a friend. The fit on my toilet, doesn’t raise the seat at all. Everyone in my house seems a little happier now that our bums are cleaner. Once you bidet, you’ll never “go” the same again.A.Z.smiles
So fresh, so clean!
This is a solid and well-priced bidet. Once installed, it will help you to have extra confidence in your cleanliness after using the bathroom. And you will need far less toilet paper.The home bidet installation is fairly straight-forward and takes about 15 minutes.
The bidet works wonderfully.Michael L
This is the second unit I buy and install. Of course, the installation of the second one was much quicker and felt easier than the first, but even the first presented no problems and I am not a handyman at all. It's a wonderful addition to the bathroom. Once you get used to it there is no way you want to go back to a bidet-less miserable life. Que viva el bidet!PierPolz
