    Doing a bathroom remodel. I want a bidet she says I will flood the bathroom. Anybody used one? Does it give that fresh clean feeling?

    When we built our house I had a bidet put into one of the bathrooms --------- It was the best thing I did ever as far as bathrooms are concerned.  
    I thought bidets were only for females but i was wrong. I throughly recommend it.  It saves trying to sit in the hand basin!!!!!!
    Our house designer has put bidets in all his new designs.
    Go for it you simply cannot regret it.
    Check the water spout that it works for you.

  • @xtimedt69 if you can find a special attachment for it you could use it for cleaning inside your butt!

    @isvara @braveneworld guess what??? They make a retrofit one that fits on a regular toilet with heated water and retractable jets! Less than $150.00.

    I've always wanted to try a bidet. It seems like such a nice and quick way to clean your anus after moving your bowels. Rather than jumping in the shower. Is it used purely as a water rinse? Or is the idea to also soap up?

    Toilet paper is a good invention though. Some of them are a bit thin and you might want to fold them multiple times before wiping, but there are good versions of it. Some actually stick to your ass, stay away from those. You guys should try it :P

    @xtimedt60 first one was awsome! Like in China.. all the toilets got them. Go large, porta-bidet isn`t anything for you!


    Proper use of a bidet:

  • @xtimesdt69 Seriously you would be better getting a separate fixed water one! No electrics to go wrong and designed to just keep working for ever. If you have the room of course. Your wife says she does not want one but once she has used it a few timmes I bet she wont be able to do without it!

    No, it won't flood the bathroom unless the overflow drain isn't working and you leave it running with the 'stopper' closed.

    When you rinse your crack to just remove a film of sweat (aka perspiration) it does yield, "that fresh clean feeling!"

    Only downside is that the rim lacks a warming device for installation in colder climates.  (Note:  a couple of the Japanese toilet seats do have warmers along with their bidet-type sprays)

    Over the years we've rented several homes in foreign countries with a variety of bidets.  So, here are thoughts to discuss with your wife and plumber.

    -- We've had bidet fountains that didn't warm up for several minutes.  That tempts one to fully open the fountain valve and have water splashing on the floor.  Adding a small in-line or instant water heater near the bathroom will help.  If that's not possible, choose a smaller diameter supply pipe to speed warm-up.

    -- consider the cost-benefit of installing having a thermostatic valve to deliver water that's, "just right."

    -- consider the different type of valves available for the water manifold (rotary open-closed, spring loaded levers). 

    -- consider adding a "barb" fitting for attaching a short hose and douche nozzle if you or your wife so desire.  (remember that copper will corrode and leave a green stain on the bidet... brass or nickle plate or plastic is better)

    @rook. Be nice to try before yo buy. But Home Depot frowns on it as do most mattress stores.

    xtimedt69,

    If you don't have room for a stand alone, you may also want to consider the Lotus products.  These seats rinse and dry you and are loaded with features.   4 or 5 years ago we had one or two threads running about them here in the forum and several users seemed quite satisfied with them.   Be advised that these devices are more pricey.   Check out the vid here

  • everyone used to have one in the 80s here and no one has now. think this pretty much tells how people liked those.

    i used one once and this is my experience:
    depends on the type of bidet (quality=price) but if you sit down your penis and scrotum "bath" in poo water, if you dont sit down properly you might get wet at your legs, and water drips down on your shorts.

    i would recommand to use wet wipes and wash properly when having a shower.

    I did not realise that bidets were such a bone of contention!

    The one we had put in I thought was all wrong with the outlet on the top between the taps.  See picture.  However it has works ever so well. I don't have to sit in the poo! I normally never put the plug in. The water exits just in the right place (angle is adjustable) - pre soap, rinse and dry -10 seconds! Or I can sit facing the outlet for a front trad-sex freshen up - 10 seconds. Excellent for 'rrhoids - they really pop back in (haha).  Saves heaps of paper!!!!! (Trees)  Probably uses less water than making the paper!  However that was not my concern.  I just like to feel fresh and clean after whatever and for whatever.

  • @isvara Are you sure they did not install a low hand basin by mistake? It really looks like one! =))

    @braveneworld you are a funny man!!!


    @isvara We don't have the space for a seperate unit. She can't see the value in a $400-$500 "toilet seat" with water jets!!! LOL! I like the Lotus ones but they are pricey.

    @Alex_xxx  great as a beer cooler!  Moved into one house in Puerto Rico where the bidet was half full of colored marbles.

    @xtimedt69   If space, cost, or 'aesthetics' are an issue, consider a "shower-shot" type of device. When an anal/vaginal douche nozzle is attached the purpose is rather obvious.  If that's a concern, attach a more conventional hand shower and tell people that it's really handy to give your dog a bath.



    enjoy,  rook

    I'll tell you this:  I hate spending time cleaning my ass.   Probably I would be happy to have a bidet.

    But what I do as a stopgap to get nice and clean is use a diaper wipe or two at the end (and throw in trash, not toilet!).   I recommend Pampers Sensitive, 192 pack.

    @rook Damn I didn't think about just bringing the Garden hose in through the window!!! You just saved me hundreds of dollars. Seriously how do those things work attached to the shower? One how do you know when to stop shooting your self full of water? Where does the "debris" go? doesn't that have the potential for somewhat of a mess?

    @Darwin I got these:

    http://www.charmin.com/freshmates-flushable-wipes.aspx

    They are so damn small they are useless. Unless they meant for you use your hand and then use the wipe to clean you hands off.

    Some years ago when we were house hunting I came across an ensuite toilet that had a Toilet Shower attached. I may have the name wrong. It was a small shower type nozzle attached to a flexible tube with tap that was plumbed into the toilet plumbing. It was not a douche. I did not think it appropriate to give it a go ha ha! But at the time I was impressed. I think the house owners were Asian or pacific island people.
    We do not have a cold climate (freezing) so a cold water wash on the toilet would not be a problem.
    BTW I think pacific folk do wash as I am told that the girls public toilet on our tourist strip is awash with water!

    Think it's hard/inconvenient cleaning up without a bidet?  Try it with your bottom three disks removed and the vertebrae fused together; it's a real pain in the ass trying to reach it buck naked, and nearly impossible to reach when clothed.  Add to that, a great deal of lost nerve sensation in the rectal/prostate area, and it's a challenge at times.  When I get a good nights' sleep in my bed, I wake up stiff and sore, so I have to loosen up by relaxing in my recliner for at least a half-hour.  If I have to make an emergency BM before I get loosened up, I can't quite reach far enough back to clean myself.  I have, however, found those adult wet-wipes quite useful after I've thought I've cleaned myself well enough; it shows I never have.

     

    I apologize for the apparent rant; you may now continue with your regularly-scheduled programming.

  • @badger Sound blood awful mate! I have smashed my heals into 20 piece and after two years am in tremendous pain when walking. The recliner or bed is the only places where the pain subsides so mate I feel your pain I too use those adult wet wipes after toilet paper as the paper just quite frankly does shit all!
    Hope the pain becomes less in the future for you.

    @Badger @braveneworld what brand of wipes do you use? Those Charmin ones SUCK!

    Damn guys we are three broken MF's. Two years ago I had to have ankle surgery to repair an old  injury that went back to being drug more than 200 yards by a horse (broke my left leg and pulled both hips out of joint), and they pretty much took my foot off and put it back on. Some mornings I get out of bed and feel like an old stick for a while.

    I use the Costco own-brand baby wipes. They're not flushable though.

    @twlltin @braveneworld @Badger I have a Sam's club, I am going to go today and see what they have. I too detest the after BM cleanup and I hate my ass to feel unclean.

    But these may be the best yet!!!!!

    So I did it and got a bidet after months and months of studying. The wife looks at me with a smirk and has made several wise ass (bu good natured comments). When I was looking about a year ago they were rtaher cumbersome and expensive, but I found this one:


    I have it installed and it works quite nicely, hitting and cleaning the right spot Feels rather refreshing. If you turn it on high though it's like getting an enema from a power washer and you look like one pf those fountains in a European fountain with water spewing out your mouth. 

    My first test was rather humorous and almost paid the wife back for her remarks ... I turned it on medium and it sprayed across the room missing her face by just inches. She wasn't pissed but not amused either.

    @isvara It works perfectly hits the right spot and the cool water cleans as it refreshes. I am sold on it. Plus self cleaning, not mess and only $39.95 and with Prime free shipping.

    @isvara after a week with this bidet, I don't know how I lived without it. Instant freshness. But wait there's more .... I discovered through another website, that if you use the higher pressure and do contractions, it actually cleans out inside too and very effectively.

    @xtimedt69, mmmmm your toilet bidet is much better for the clean out as 'it' can be flushed away. Sounds like a win win all round. You have joined the exclusive Bidet Club!
