The toilet bowl and the bidet are two separate plumbing fixtures that are both used many times a day. In every bathroom you off course will find a toilet bowl but you may not always find a bidet. Many people like to use bidets because they offer a fresh clean feeling that just using toilet paper can not provide. Many people also say that using a bidet is more healthy for you as well. The problem is that not every house was built with a bidet in mind and if the house does not already have existing plumbing for a bidet then the cost to hire a plumber to run water lines and waste lines to the bathroom could be quite expensive, until the toilet bidet seat came along.
The toilet bidet seat offers the same features that a standard bidet can offer with out all of the extra hassles of adding additional plumbing to your house. In fact the bidet toilet seat can be hooked up with a few easy steps requiring just a few basic hand tools. Bidet seats work the same way a bidet does by providing a spray of water from the rear of toilet seat. The water that sprays out from the bidet nozzle can be heated with some models of bidet seats. Other options bidet seats can have are massages and even warm heated drying systems.
The bidet seat will replace your existing toilet seat. You also will need a electric outlet near your toilet bowl if your bidet seat requires electric. The bidet seats that require electric are usually the models with the heated water and air dryers. If you do not have electric in your bathroom you can use a bidet seat that just requires a power supply. This type of bidet seat will only use and spray cold water for cleaning. Most bidet seats will also have have an adjustment knob so you can control the amount of force that sprays out of the bidet nozzle.
To install a standard cold water bidet seat that requires no electricity, you will need to remove your old toilet seat. The next step would be to bolt on the new bidet toilet seat in place of the old standard toilet seat. Once you have the new bidet seat bolted onto the toilet you will need to connect the water supply to the bidet seat. Depending on what brand of bidet seat you buy will depend on how the water supply hooks up to it. Most bidet toilet seats come with all the hardware and the adapters you will need to hook the bidet seat up in minutes without having to use all kinds of expensive tools. In fact most of the connections on the bidet toilet seat can tighten and installed with an adjustable wrench.
