Correcting Common Misconceptions About Bidets



Many people are unfamiliar with bidets. In addition, there are some myths surrounding the bidet that give this bathroom fixture a bad reputation. Today, we’ll correct these misconceptions.

Bidets Require Professional Installation

You won’t need to duplicate existing plumbing or hire a plumber for bidet installation. You can easily include a bidet during when planning a simple bathroom renovation project. You can attach a bidet directly underneath the toilet seat or you can just replace the toilet seat with a bidet seat. Bidet seats can be installed by a homeowner because they are just connected to a standard GFCI outlet. They utilize the current water connection that’s attached to your water tank, so they don’t require installation of additional plumbing.

Bidets Make a Mess

Bidets won’t cause a mess. They are designed to gently clean personal areas. Many bidet seats also allow you to adjust the pressure and position of the stream of water to get a clean and comfortable experience. A few premium bidets even include water temperature settings.

Bidets Are Expensive

The average American uses over 20,000 sheets of toilet paper per year, and the cost adds up. A bidet is not that expensive and can reduce your toilet paper use by up to 75 percent.
