Types of Bidets
There are two types of bidets commonly used in homes. One is connected to the toilet seat and the other is a floor mounted standalone porcelain bidet. The toilet seat bidet is used to retrofit an existing toilet and is connected to the water pipe going to the toilet. The standalone bidet looks almost like another toilet but has separate plumbing from the toilet. Some porcelain bidets can also be mounted on a wall along with a new toilet. There is a bidet for every size bathroom, therefore you're guaranteed to find the right one for your home!
The Benefits of Using a Bidet
There are numerous health, hygiene, and environmental benefits associated with using a bidet, including:
- Better Hygiene: A bidet helps you to stay cleaner after going to the bathroom than when you just use toilet paper. The bidet also removes germs and bacteria that toilet paper leaves behind.
- Lowers Toilet Paper Usage: Lowers toilet paper usage and protects trees and the environment. About 27,000 trees are harvested every day throughout the world to make toilet paper. Most times, virgin forest trees are used instead of recycled paper. Bidets lower the need and demand for toilet paper which decreases the amount of deforestation going on in the world. Toilet paper also contains a lot of bleaches, dyes, perfumes, and other chemicals. As the toilet paper breaks down, those chemicals get released into the environment.
- Plumbing Friendly: A clogged toilet is a common problem in many homes. Clogs are usually formed or worsened when too much toilet paper is used. Using too much toilet paper can also be a problem for older septic systems and leach fields. Removing clogs from a septic system can be an expensive and time-consuming process during which you may not be able to use the bathroom or kitchen. A bidet reduces the chance that you will have clogged pipes in the future caused by using too much toilet paper.
The installation and use of bidets are growing in the United States because they are more sanitary and environmental-friendly than using a regular toilet. At Beehive Plumbing we carry a full line of bidets from top manufacturers like Kohler, Moen, and Standard. Many of the bidet seats on the market today use electricity to offer high-end, luxury features. There are requirements that pertain to an electrical outlet when installing an electric bidet toilet seat that often requires a professional plumber for installation.
Bidet Replacement Services
At Beehive Plumbing, we are able to replace an existing bidet that no longer works properly and replace it with a new updated model. If you are remodeling your bathroom and are looking to free up space, we can remove an old bidet and retrofit your existing toilet with a seat that has a bidet built into it. Just give us a call and we'll stop by to help you develop a plan for your new bathroom.
Bidet Repair Services
Bidets are reliable but they can develop problems over time. The water stream may start to flow in the wrong direction and the pipe will need to be adjusted. Sometimes, debris can build up on the strainer in the pipe and the water flow will be greatly reduced, or the washers around the strainer can wear out and you’ll experience water dripping out of the pipe. You have no need to worry. Our Beehive professionals not only install bidets but we also have trained service technicians who can repair any problems you might experience with your bidet. If your bidet is in need of a repair we’ll send a technician out to your house to fix it right away.
