Do you have limited mobility and feel as though using the bathroom has become a bit of an issue? Maybe you are trying to improve your hygiene and are seeking a natural way to try and treat your haemorrhoids. Either way, a bidet is certainly a good way for you to solve the problems you are having without compromise. When you add a bidet to your bathroom, you will be able to cut down on your toilet waste. After all, 42 million tons of toilet paper is used across the world every year, and this has a catastrophic impact on the environment. If you want to do something about this, then using a bidet is certainly a solid solution. Want to find out more? Take a look below.
Types of Bidet
When you choose a bidet, you may notice that there are various choices available. Most of them can be split into two different categories. You have a traditional bidet, and you have a bidet add-on.
Traditional bidets tend to be installed separately from the main toilet. They resemble a toilet too, but instead of having a bowl and a tank, they have a faucet and a drain. Traditional bidets are costly compared to add-ons, and they also take up more room, but that being said, they do tend to give you a better experience overall. Traditional bidets are available as a wall-mounted option, which attaches to the wall. You also have a floor bidet. This is the most common and it is the simplest option to fit. Turkish toilets and back to wall bidet toilets are also options you may want to think about.
Bidet add-ons do not have much more of an advantage when compared to a traditional bidet. They do the same job but you can fit them into your bathroom. They don’t take up any extra room but at the same time, you may not feel as though you are getting the full experience and if you intend to use your bidet all the time, you may want to opt for a traditional combined bidet toilet.
The Cost of a Bidet
Wall hung bidet toilets come with various features, and they are provided by different brands that often release new models. If you want to spend as little as possible then it’s now possible for you to find an affordable bidet without compromising features. If you do this, you should know that you might not get all of the bells and whistles that you’d expect with a more expensive model, but you will have an easy and convenient way to clean yourself after going to the bathroom, without harming the environment.
Ease of Use
It’s very normal for you to have a bit of an adjustment period when it comes to your new bidet. Most bidets are very easy to use though. Traditional bidets are available with a number of great features, some of them include rimless options, integrated toilets and the option for warm or hot water.
The water pressure has to be at a certain level if you want to be satisfied with your end product. You may find that you have a hard time cleaning yourself if you notice that the water pressure is either too high or too low. Traditional bidets come with a faucet that allows you to turn up the water pressure to the correct level. Some of them even come with an adjustable water pressure toggle where you can choose the one that works best for you.
When choosing your bidet, a lot of factors influence comfort. Whether it is the design or even the shape of the toilet seat, you have to think about things like this. The water temperature will also play a huge role in the general comfort of your bidet. In the dead of winter, cold water can feel somewhat unkind, but warm water would be a welcome feature. Most bidets come with an option for hot and cold water, but it’s best to make sure if you can.
Ease of Installation
Installing a bidet is not a walk in the park to say the least. Unless you are a trained plumber, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. A bidet attachment can be easy to fit but at the end of the day, if you go through a reputable service for your bidet, you will soon find that they can handle the installation process for you. Most bidets on the market today are very easy to use, so it’s no surprise that quality bidet installations are on the rise.
