At Elite Luxury Bath /eliteluxurybath.com/ we have made choosing easy for you by offering the newest and best bidet products. We've looked at what the manufacturers have to offer, examined them inside and out and carefully chosen the best bidets for you.
First, you have to decide which type of bidet will best suit your needs. An Electronic Seat Bidet that will replace your existing toilet lid and seat? A standard bidet that goes between your existing toilet lid and seat? A hand-held bidet, a travel bidet or deciding to go all out and get all the bells and whistles of a top of the line bidet seat like the Cascade 3000.
We've divided them into several categories as well as pointed out the advantages and disadvantages of each type. Finally, we've provided some basic information for buyers to consider before finally making a purchase. So, let's get started!
Electronic Bidet Seats
- First, you have to determine whether you have a one-piece or two-piece toilet. A 1-piece toilet is a toilet sculpted into a seamless unit. The result is a sleek toilet with no crevices between the tank and bowl. A 2-piece toilet has a separate tank and bowl that are bolted together upon installation.
1 Piece Toilet
2 Piece Toliet
Virtually all toilet seat bidets such as BioBidet, Cascade 3000 will fit 2-piece toilets. If you have a 1 piece toilet, your selection is a bit more limited. Read product descriptions carefully to make sure the bidet will fit your piece toilet. Example of bidets that will fit a 1-pc toilet is the BioBidet BB600.
- Second, you have to determine the shape of your toilet bowl whether it is round or elongated. In the figure below, measure the A-line, which is the inches from the center of the two mounting holes, to the end of your toilet bowl.
Round Bowl - A measurement of inches from the middle of the two-seat bolts on the back edge of the toilet (figure A) that equals to number 16.5 or less.
Elongated Bowl - A measurement of inches from the middle of the two-seat bolts on the back edge of the toilet (Figure A) that equals to number 16.5 or more.
Check the product specifications for exact measurements if your bowl falls somewhere in between.
Next, choose the color of the bidet. Most bidets come in white and beige (biscuit). Pick the color that matches your toilet.
Decide between a one-nozzle or two-nozzle bidet. The two-nozzle bidet is especially handy for feminine hygiene since it has its own separate nozzle for that as well as the standard nozzle for rear cleansing.
Choose what features are important to you. Bidets have an amazing variety of features, from built-in deodorizers to remote controls, warm air dryers and even automatically opening and closing hydraulic seats.
Pick well-respected bidet manufacturers or authorized dealers. There are many different bidet makers and dealers out there.
Some of the most popular brands include BioBidet, Hygiene For Health and Dignity Solutions.
Non-Electrical Bidet Seats
One example of non-electric seat bidet is the BioBidet Economy Class Slim Zero Non Electric Elongated Toilet Seat, the other is BioBidet Economy Class Slim Zero Non Electric toilet seat.
Both models replace your existing toilet lid and seat in a similar manner to the electronic seat bidets. They can be hooked up to hot water, but can also be used for cold water only.
If used for hot water, then a typical installation is to connect with the hot/cold water line under the bathroom sink. Of course, this application is only practical if your toilet is within 5-6 ft. of your toilet.
Both models have self-cleaning nozzles. This is an advantage not found in the insert type bidets below.
Hand Held Bidets
Hand held bidets are the stylish, practical and affordable solution for better hygiene care. For many years these clever attachments have been used widely around the world and only recently introduced in the USA. They easily attach to your existing toilet. At Elite Luxury Bath, we have hand bidets from BioBidet. All hand bidets function the same way. They only differ in spray heads design and materials used. Some hand bidets are metal/brass constructed.
A travel bidet is a battery-powered unit that you can carry with you wherever you go! Just fill it with water and it is ready to do its job which is to of course clean you.
When you are done, just empty out any remaining water, fold in the spray wand, collapse the bidet back into its translucent blue reservoir and slip this compact unit into your purse or briefcase.
A travel bidet is great for those who wish to take the benefits of home bidets on the road. They're also convenient to use at home for persons with limited mobility or anyone hesitant about installing a full bidet system. The most popular types of travel bidets are battery-powered, plastic units that are compact enough to be gripped by people of all ages.
