  • I used a toilet seat bidet today...yipes!

    I'm doing a job at the house of a Japanese woman and her family. This is the second time I've come across a customers bathroom that has a bidet installed--one of the good ones too with heated seat, air drying--the works.

    The first time was in an $8 million house doing a $41,000 reface job. Really rich people give me the creeps as it is, and it was the first time I had actually sat on one of those seats, so I was too nervous to try it and went with the good old sears catalogue--I mean paper. But the *ahem*discussion here on the forum had me pretty curious about the thing.

    This time I felt pretty comfortable and welcome in the house, and so I says to myself, "eff it" and gave it a whirl.

    First thought was "does this thing have a laser aim?!?" because let me tell you--bullseye.

    I won't go into grittier details than that unless asked, but I could see getting used to the thing. I'm not about to go get one tonight and install it in my apartment, but I can definately see the benifits. I felt pretty fresh and clean after and wasn't worried about a weak flush not doing it's job from too much paper.

    Maybe one day when I have my own house and a few extra bucks...

      I'll tell ya, man......I can see the benefits to having one of these things. Just the damn savings in paper would pay for it.

      Everyone wants to be "fresh".....

      Especially on those days when you have a stomach-flu and that "fresh feeling" disappears around 7:00 AM............
      I'm on "The List" and I love it!!

        what happened, I thought the bidet salesman(can't remember his name) would buy it from you if you didn't like it.
        Buy cheap, buy twice.

            We would've for the price we could get them for. Now we found a better unit then the TOTO 300. So I'm not all that interested.

              Glad to hear you tried it. They make all different styles in all different price ranges. so don't let price scare you off. Ken and I are not joking about these things . I only wish I would have tried one years ago so I could have told some of my relatives with bad mobility about them before they died.

                Thanks for the offer Rick, but my girl said no-go too. Her issue is that I'm 'sposed to be saving pennies for a ring .

                If you still have it when i get that situated I may just take you up on it.

                    I think she's okay with the bidet idea, just not with me spending cash on a toilet ring instead of an engagement ring at the moment. Unless it's a rope-a-dope move and all the "maybe"s turn into "no way"s once the deal is sealed!

                        Your right about the savings in paper. Heck a cheap unit costs about $70.00. You'd save that in T.P in no time.

                        I'll change the word fresh for clean. You are clean every time. It's great!!!!

                          O.K. so what is better than the Toto 300 that you have found?

                          Never used a bidet. My wife also said "no way" when I asked her about one when the big bidet thread got going.
                          Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.
