  • Bidet or not bidet?

    Should I add a bidet with flush rim andouche spray, or purchase the bidet seat to add to an existing elongated bowl toilet?

    Thank you,

    Robert
    I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.

    bidet seat is the way to go. a stand alone bidet is a waste of space and doesn't do half of which a good bidet seat will do.

      Thank you, PlumbeRick.
      Which ones do you recommend?
      Co$t?
      Presumably I'll need to install an electrical outlet in the WC closet?
      Maybe I can bring it from the bathroom sink counter GFCI-protected outlet on the other side of the wall.

        You will be happy with most any expensive bidet seat. The only one I have tried that did not clean at all was an inax so stay away from them.

          You are right about the electric. as for cost be prepaired for anything from $600 to $1200. If you have any questions feel free to P.M. me or give me a call 616 399 6775. 1 more thing even if you spend $1200 (I wouldn't) it will be worth every penny. They are that good.

              if you want to spend the money/ $800. then the toto washlet 300 is what we have.

              if you want to save the money, then the wife's old hairdryer should work for drying and odor control

                Can it be easily moved between powderoom and master bath?
                Then people might think we're rich!

                  easy, no, butt it can be moved if needed.

                  the water connection has a quick disconnect and you could buy another tee fitting so that the water is already connected, but turned off.

                  the seat snaps onto a quick release bracket, but they don't make a matching non bidet seat to quick connect back and forth.

                  an interesting question and maybe toto can help with that seat swapping.

                    Where can one buy a Toto S300?
                    Cheapest I found is $1,325.
                    Is there something similar which is less expensive?
                    Thank you.

                      robert a simple google search and this showed up on my first click.

                      looks like a great price and no tax.

                        Robert I have to commend you on your intrest in a bidet. When you get one you will be on the cutting edge of hygene. You will be on par with the midwifes that would wash there hands before delivering babies when Doctors thought washing your hands was rediculous. you will be one of the people that made it a point to brush there teeth when the rest of the country was dieing from dental disease. I could go on and on,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and i will. 24 is on I'm out of here
