@Stumpy91 Yes. I got the ones with two inputs for a hot water line, but have never hooked it up. It really isn’t any more shockinv than washing your hands with tap. You do want to control the pressure, though. Once the light sprinkle hits, and you adust to the water temperature (2-3 seconds, again its tap temperature on a small part of your skin, not like a full body shower when the hot runs out), then you can turn it up to full-blast power washing to strip the chrome off a bumper if you’d like.
I really like the models I got from Meh (link above), even though I don’t use the hot water line feature, and I never figured out the “fun” mode (maybe it rotates the jet around for full-service cleaning?)
@Stumpy91 Two squares is all it takes. You’re just dabbing the area dry, and if you notice any spots you’ve missed, you just wash again and dry again. It will come to you pretty easy. But the reduction in TP usage is huge.
I can’t imagine the stress on the municipal sewer systems around the country as people flush all that toilet down their toilets.
@mike808@Stumpy91 I don’t feel the need to use any TP the water falls off and you dry quickly. It’s nice to not have to use TP and have your fingers rubbing your poop-hole. (Unless you like doing that–“nothing wrong with that.”) I love my two-for-Tuesday Bio-Bidets. Also I have a septic system and the septic pump guy told me that what fills the tank is the TP not the poo. So I expect to have long intervals between pumps saving more money. I think it’s crazy everyone doesn’t have a bidet seat.
Looks like not available at Amazon now! I only paid $35 and it has worked wonderfully. Looks like all the Luxe models are out of stock but maybe you can find it somewhere else. I do think they can be ordered directly from Luxe.
Bought one last time they were here but never got around to installing it. In fact, it got stuck on a shelf in the garage and forgotten … forgotten, that is, until the Great Toilet Paper Panic of 2020 set in. Now it’s residing on my throne and soothing me with reassurance that my butt’s going to walk out of that chamber clean no matter what’s happening outside those walls.
I have had a bidet since the first meh sale. Absolutely cuts the paperwork in half. Took a few minutes to install, anyone can do it. Cold water in the winter does the job, in the summer its actually refreshing. Someday I may invest in a bidet with h/c water and the blow dry feature. It will take a Plummer. To totally eliminate paperwork.
@kcface Hi - I have one of the ones that does everything - it’s a full seat replacement w/ heated seat and water, adjustable spray, air dryer, etc., and it’s no more difficult to install than the basic ones.
Exactly the same, in fact - install a T valve between the supply and the toilet and one end of the T goes to the bidet.
I’m assuming you had to put in the T valve for the bidet you’re using, so you may not have to do any thing except hook the new one up to what’s already there.
Maybe you’re thinking it has to be connected to both hot and cold water supply, but the bidet does the heating, so you only supply cold water.
@DennisG2014@kcface don’t forget power… which can be an issue depending on bathroom layout. We’re currently using an extension cord but will get an appropriate outlet installed once the wuflu crisis abates.
It’s a xenophobic racial slur directed at the Chinese, promoted by white nationalist right-wing extremists, such as Fox “News” commentators. Much like calling people “illegal” for an administrative change in their immigration status.
It does point the finger at the country (and so the people who rule that country) that jailed doctors trying to warn about the virus, restricted reporting on the infection, withheld data, prevented international cooperative assistance and sharing of info, is now trying to say the US Army is at fault, and threatening to slow down or tariff critical PPE and supplies that the US was unwise enough to become dependent on a hostile foreign power for.
@duodec If there ever is a world war 3 there won’t be a need for bombs. If China is on one side and the USA on the other all China has to do is shut down our supply chain. End of story. And no TP either.
I bought one of the full seat replacement bidets from costco during black friday but didn’t install it until this past weekend. We have TP but it seemed to be a good time.
If your toilet isn’t flat from the rim to under the tank, you may have issues; ours barely fit because the toilet has a cove up just in front of the tank (keeps nasty from getting under the tank) that made the seat just barely fit. I may be able to slightly trim the mount plate to get it back a little further, but it is functional.
Also still using an extension cord for power; we probably won’t get an electrician out until wuflu settles back down. Or I may just install one myself. With the illannoy unions it would probably cost 4-5 times the $100-125 price I’ve seen people talk about in other areas.
Achievement unlocked; usage of toilet paper reduced.
I have one of the manual hot/cold ones sold here long ago that I’m now going to install in another bathroom as long as my wife doesn’t end up hating the fancy one.
In one forum, I was going to link to one of the many $30-50 all-the-same, cheap, cold water bidets on Amazon. They’re all friggin’ gone, sold out, none with Prime shipping. The US TP market is going to crumble in the coming years. (Now I have to find the ~5 or so spares I bought from Meh and price gouge!)
@joe645@Kidsandliz Yeah, I’m sure my bideted butt is cleaner than that of someone who only uses TP, but still not clean enough for me to be comfortable drying off with something that doesn’t get flushed down the toilet afterwards.
It’s just beyond my personal comfort level.
Not saying it’s completely rational of me to feel that way or that you’re wrong for doing it.
You do you, it’s all good. I’ll refrain from shaking your hand even after this pandemic thing is over, though. No offense.
