@squishybrain I’ve always wondered how the hot water option works on these. I mean it takes 30-45 seconds for hot water to reach my bathroom sink, so I just wait before I put my hands under the water. Does the bidet give such an option to pre-run the water until it’s warm before shooting it onto your backside?
@demonbane The one on Meh is not what you want. The one I bought is very comfortable, has easy adjustments…seems about the same level of build as my Toto…solid. No, it’s not the top of the line, but if you compare the one I got to the others, it doesnt have a lot of bells and whistles, but it uses nice warm water, has good adjustments, and this one is also in our second bathroom.
I bought one when previously offered. The nighttime temperature dropped to about 50 last weekend and it started leaking like crazy. I am guessing due to metal fastener screwing onto plastic and shrinking at different rates. I had to disconnect it.
Before this happened, it worked perfectly.
Probably will not be able to use it during cold weather months anyway since it is not the heated model.
I will settle for nothing but the best! But nothing I have is elongated (toilet seat, butt, none of it!). Please, for the love of all that is holey, sell the round one one of these times! Until then…
@ponagathos The trick is to ease it on up until you get a gentle sprinkle. It takes a bit of time at low pressure for the guard to fully retract, since it is pressure-driven. Too much pressure, and it flips up like a switch, at full blast.
I have always been intrigued at the idea of getting a good bidet, but our master bathroom has the toilet in a separate little room by itself. Does it need to be plugged in? I assume so to heat the water. The only electrical source is the light switch by the door.
@Lister Great comments everyone and yes, the electric models will need to be plugged in and have a 4’ cord. You’re right that most American homes do not have an electrical outlet that close but you can run a small extension cord to an outlet nearby, typically near the vanity.
@BioBidet awwww, bummer. I’ve really been wanting one & was almost sold but we also have the closet can & I don’t want to run an extension cord for fear of a tripping hazard, (just had a two level c-spine fusion, myself & my husband would be pissed if I effed it all up during a nighttime potty stop!). Perhaps we’ll have our contractor run the wires & install an outlet for us & in the meantime I’ll wait to see if this deal is offered again in the next few months.
Yay, I was going to bite the last time but missed out. Just the cheap one though–the cold water tap can approach 100 degrees here in the summer, so not particularly worried about it being too cold. Also got an apropos order number:
You tempt me once more meh, and yet my lone throne is not the right shape for the best, and the lesser will simply not do. Alas, one day I will have an elongated bowl, and on that day, I will not say nay.
@mellowirishgent uninformed? have you tried a warm toilet seat in the middle of the night along with a nice warm spray to the butt-hole? almost as good as grandma reading you bedtime stories to put you to sleep
( or that creepy uncle )
/ why spray the nuts? i feel like \
\ i missed something /
The only negative thing I can say is that these ruin vacations. You will feel unclean all day when you have to go without a bidet. I don’t know why the US is so weird about toilet hygiene. I ask, if you got poop anywhere else on your body, would you feel comfortable wiping it off with toilet paper alone?
I have the least expensive one and love it. I think most women get the advantages of owning one. The only caution I advise is to VERY gently increase the water pressure or else you will shoot yourself straight off the seat for the surprise of your life. No sense rocketing yourself into the air. Lol
@robin0575 With a dual nozzle system the posterior wash will have fewer holes in the nozzle end, making for a more forceful and focused wash. The feminine nozzle will have more holes in a wider pattern thus creating a softer and wider spray, easy on the lady parts.
Got the “best” last time: my wife loves it, I like it.
Plumbing was a snap with the tee fitting, but I had to cut a hole in the wall and wire in an electrical outlet. Nothing I haven’t done many times, but it did mean yet another trip to the store for the parts I thought I had, and another hour or two to get the job done.
The only real problem with it is she always leaves the bun warmer on “scorch” while I prefer “rare”.
Love these! Got them last time, then my sis got them and we think they’re the best things we’ve ever bought. How do people live without them? Icky, icky, icky. Shame on you, buy these and have a most Meh experience ever!
We’d been talking about trying one of these on and off, last time they were on meh, my wife and I both bought one without realizing the other had (A3). Originally we thought we’d return one, but after using them, we’re definitely keeping both - love them. Great for the kids too. Cleaner bums abound, and with much less toilet paper use. Highly recommended.
@jakemanchester sooo… we’re shy at our house and we pretend “bathroom things” don’t occur. But I really want one of these. How do I start the conversation? And what do I say to my houseguests? I’m too mortified to talk about it. OH GOD I’m blushing thinking about this!
