An Overview On Bidet Toilet Seats
Bidet toilet seats offer a simple way to enhance our current style of cleaning ourselves after using the toilet. The water from a bidet gently jets upwards to clean any remaining residue, either solid or liquid, after we are done relieving ourselves on the toilet.
In addition to becoming more clean due to the thoroughness of the water jetting, we have the added benefit of needing to use way less toilet paper and therefore we are creating much less paper waste in our households. Some small amount of toilet paper is still used to pat dry the area, lest it remain damp, but the total toilet paper usage is still drastically lower than if we use if for the primary wiping duties.
Bidets will have one or two sprayers. In the case of a simpler bidet with one sprayer, it may require a little adjustment with where you are sitting on the seat. By moving your body a little bit, you are able to get the stream of water exactly where you want it, maintaining control over what gets cleaned.
Dual-spray bidets are a little more high end and often you will start seeing some other options added in like a water-warming system or remote control. With two nozzles, one will generally have a higher flow rate and be aimed more towards the rear where you might need to remove solids, while the front sprayer is more gentle and can clean the more sensitive areas without adding unnecessary discomfort.
Heated bidet toilet seats totally exist and it’s exactly the luxury that you can imagine it being. The seat is warm when you sit down, taking away the cold feeling you might otherwise get, especially in the winter months. In addition to the seat being warm, there are plenty of models that have a mechanism to heat the water a little bit before spraying it on you. This warm water is a safe way to add comfort to the task and it might be one of the nicer creature-comforts in bidet designs today.
Other useful features in some models of bidet toilet seats are a remote control option and nightlights. The remote control is very handy for those who have limited mobility and aren’t able to comfortably control the dials and mechanisms that are often tucked to the side of the toilet. Nightlights add guidance in the middle of the night when you are trying to find your way to the toilet seat.
Installing a bidet toilet seat is generally a task that takes 15-30 minutes if you are able to use some simple hand tools and follow the provided instructions. There are models that install easily with no tools whatsoever, but you will at the very least find yourself needing to undo the existing water-hose connecting into the toilet, since that is where the bidet will get its water supply from.
DWYM Fun Fact
Toilet seats with built-in bidets are only one of a few common types of bidets on the market today. There are handheld bidet sprayers that are similar to the spray nozzle that you might find on a modern kitchen sink, only it’s attached to the side of your toilet. The other common bidet is a standalone unit, more commonly found in countries overseas, that sits in your bathroom and resembles a toilet, but in fact is the bidet.
The Bidet Toilet Seat Buying Guide
- Bidets can take a little while to get used to, so don’t get discouraged if it feels strange the first few times. It will become more natural as you get used to it.
- Try all the adjustments to find one that is best for you. Some people like stronger jets of water and some like the stream to be more gentle.
- If you test the bidet sprayer while standing in front of it, it will spray directly on you or the wall in front of the toilet, so be prepared and stand to the side when doing your first function test.
- If you use a remote for your bidet, attach it somewhere easy to reach with a small string or cable so you don’t end up losing the small remote.
- Practice adjusting your seated position a little bit to help the bidet work effectively.
- Bidets pay for themselves over time by way of toilet paper savings. If you are struggling with the idea of paying money for your bidet, try calculating how many toilet paper rolls would equal the cost of the bidet and you can get a good feel for your return on investment.
