Install bidet on toilet


Dunno if this went through. It's not showing up. Try again.
Looking for real-world experience installing a bidet on existing toilet. Basically, it's a spray nozzle attached to the water supply. If anybody's done this, wd appreciate your sharing brand purchased and if installation was complicated.
TIA

I've not installed one, but they're apparently popular in Japan. Toto is one brand that I've seen; the whole assembly just replaces the seat. Installation *appears* fairly straightforward; looks like just one water connection and one power connection. Japanese power is fairly comparable to that of the US, so it's not inconceivable that you might find someone importing them. I find the thing fairly creepy, myself, but that may just be because I'm not used to having little robotic squirter things moving about under my bum.

The Toto one is available in the US. I know of at least one person with one. I didnt' get it when I changed the toilet to Toto.

Is the spray nozzle under constant water pressure even when it’s not being used?

You can make your own. Just attach the water inlet to a piece of 3/4" copper tubing. Put a valve in line. Bend the tubing to fit to the rear of the seat. Let it stick up about a foot above the seat. When you finish taking a shit, sit on the pipe and let it go all the way up your asshole. When it's all the way up your butt hole, turn on the valve and let it do the cleaning. If you want, you could rig this up so the water comes out the pipe when you flush the toilet. This way you can flush the toilet and your asshole at the same time.
Note, if brown water starts coming out of your mouth, it's time to shut off the valve.

We put a Toto washlet unit when we redid our bathroom. It is very nice: adjustable warm water, an air dryer, a deodorizer, and a heated seat.
Some of the considerations were that it fits only certain model toilets (not a problem for us as we were getting a new toilet, too.), it needs an electric outlet right by the toilet (these are rare, so you will have a wiring job also, and it was fairly costly (Toto's are not an economy product). Water supply was no problem, as it runs off the tank supply (the water is heated electrically). And you need a convenient place to hang the wireless controller. I think other manufacturers make them, such as panasonic, and might cost less than the Toto, but our Toto has performed flawlessly for over 7 years now.

Hmmm.... This thread is quite enlightening. You folks may have helped solve a worsening health problem.
I'm my mom's caretaker, as she is getting older and beginning to suffer from senile dementia and will probably end up with terminal alzheimers, like her mom. Recently, she has begun suffering a health problem due to her inability, physically and/or mentally, to properly clean herself adequately. This can develop into a severe rash that requires first aid and has already, on one occasion, progressed to the point of hospitalization, yet she still vehemently resists any assistance. A bidet might be just the solution. I don't know why I didn't think of it before. Thank you, very much.

I've got an arthritic back, and so far I haven't been unable to reach where I need to, but I can definitely see where a bidet might be in my future.
Wash- and dry. 2 things I might not be able to do even in a shower.
Problem is, every time I try to test drive one of them on a display . . . .<g>

There are a variety of exercises and poss. even supplements that can help, depending depending. I make apparatus that deals with this kind of problem, for my own very dicey back.
Also, they make inversion tables, that you may have seen on HSN, QVC, etc. Very over-priced, you can find Weider's online for $99, I got one from Sam's or Costco for $129, a while back.
This is not a rah-rah-rah hup-two-three-four let's-get-fit-and-have-fun shpiel. There's some real biomechanics/physiology to this, that can really help -- depending depending.

OK, a serious question. Is the Toto strictly a seat add-on? At $1000+, I'd think you'd get the actual toilet, too. I am looking at the washlet version, as a plain bidet next to an existing toilet is not possible in a park model home bathroom.

Toto makes several models of Washlets - and the prices range from a fair bit to quite a bit. The toilets are sold separately. There are alternatives, but I have no experience with them. http://cgi.ebay.com/DUO-BIDET-WOMAN-2-NOZZLE-Washlet-Hot-Cold-Non-Elec-/220641517656 http://cgi.ebay.com/DAEWON-BIDET-SEAT-WASHLET-NEW-STOCK-/190420828223 etc.

Funny -- Toto is childhood slang in Spanich, meaning approx. the same as "nookie".
They should also offer a Culo....
Yeah, as asstutely pointed out in this thread, bidets can be semi-assential, in numerous asspects.
Hemorrhoid sufferers would find these not only very very useful, but proly part and parcel of the healing process itself. However, for walking hemorrhoids, like Shitty Two and Ricodjour, indeed a full-body shower -- and private therapy -- would be more appropriate.
Overall, bidets really are quite the hygienic innovation, a longtime, uh, fixture in Europe, but apparently a little asspersional to Merkins.
I wonder if one of these is appropriate for the guest bathroom? Heh, I think company would NEVER leave, with one of those.... Hey, whats takin so long in there..... Mebbe I could make it coin operated.....
Oh, btw, diet and the right kind of exercise (NOT heavy squats, dats f'sure) can almost eliminate hemorrhoids in some individuals, as well deal with stiff backs, but bidets sure would be an, uh, asset for the occasional flare up.

A lot of people have a bath tub right next to the toilet in at least one bathroom. It seems that there should be a product that you could hook to the faucet in the tub and control from there, not unlike a rubber shower nozzle that you can slide over the tub faucet to allow you to rinse your hair or back while taking a bath. Heck, one of those rubber shower nozzles might be the cheapest solution (assuming the tub is in proximity to the potty). This might be a sloppy solution with overspray, though.
