A Step-by-Step Guide to Install a Bidet

Bidet seats can be installed easily and require no special tools or skills. These seats are not  like a standalone installation that will require plumbing skills and can be quite arduous. It  is easy to install bidet seats, even though they have different features. This  is easy install bidet 

Step 1 – Remove the toilet seat 

Two mounting bolts hold your current toilet seat in place to the rim. You can cover the  screws with small-sized plastic covers. To remove them, you’ll need a flathead screw. 

Once you are able to reach the bolts underneath, use the screwdriver. You may need to  reach below the toilet to remove the bolts. Sometimes the bolts are embedded in the seats  so you won’t have a surface to remove them. Untie the nuts beneath. 

Once you have removed all bolts and nuts, lift the seat. It should be easy. The seat should  be lifted and should come off easily. Clean the toilet rim to prepare for the bidet. You  should save the old seat if you are using it for your bidet seat. 

Step 2. Turn off the shutoff water supply to the toilet 

Locate the shut-off valve at the back of your toilet, closer to the floor. The supply hose  runs from the bottom of the toilet tank to the water pipe at the wall. The shut-off valve is a  valve that looks like an oval. 

Turn it counterclockwise to turn it off. To drain any remaining water in your toilet tank,  flush it. 

Step 3. Attach the T-Valve the current supply line to  the toilet 

Your bidet seat package will include a valve in shape of a T, appropriately named the T Valve. Its purpose is to turn water through the toilet and the bidet sprayer. The majority of  the components are made of plastic so tightening can be done by hand. A ll parts should fit  snugly. If you have any difficult fittings, the wrench can be used. 

Remove the supply hose from underneath the toilet tank. As water could still leak, make  sure you have a small bucket and a towel ready.

Attach the T-valve to your toilet tank at the same location as the supply hose. Attach the supply line to the T-valve’s other end. 

Step 4. Connect the bidet to your toilet 

The mounting plate for your bidet plate is included with it. Mount it on the seat by aligning  the mounting holes with the bolt holes at the back of your toilet. The whole package can be  used as a mounting plate for some bidet models. 

Once the holes are aligned properly, insert the mounting bolts included in the package  through them. Secure the entire setup by locking the bolts with the nuts underneath the  rim. Depending on the model of bidet, the bolts or nuts can be either made from plastic or  metal. Use the adjustable wrench or a screwdriver to remove metal. 

Once the plate is mounted, push it backwards until it clicks into place.

Step 5. Connect the seat of the bidet to the water  supply 

The bidet includes its own water supply line. Attach one end to the T-Valve opening to the  left. Then attach the other end to the connection on your bidet seat. 

Double-check the connections between the T-Valve & the bidet water supply. Make sure  they are tight. You can now turn on the shutoff valve you turned off at the beginning of the  installation. 

To open the shut-off valve, turn it counterclockwise. This will allow the toilet tank to fill  up and supply water to the seat. As soon as possible, check for leaks and fix any  connections that may be required. 

You will need a ground GFCI channel for electronic bidets or a reliable extension cable in  your toilet or bathroom. After plugging it in, you can check for other functions and make  sure it works as it should. To access many functions, you will need to sit on the bidet. You  can use the bidet as long as everything is in order and there are no leaks. 

Turn on the bidet 

Now it is time to turn on the bidet. Slowly open the valve until you get enough pressure to  clean your butt. On the remote control, there is a wash button that allows you to rinse your  nether regions with water.

Turn it off once the underside feels clean. If your nozzle has a self-cleaning function, it  will clean the nozzle immediately after being used. 

Different people have different ways of using the bathroom. What works for one person  may not work for another. There are many types and designs to choose from when it comes  to bidets. Some prefer to use the entire experience without any hands, while others prefer  to use the simple bidet with some toilet paper to dry their skin. 

The power of the fresh, clean water will wash away all dirt and grime from your  toilet. There is no need to use soap. If anything, it may irritate your delicate skin. Water  pressure works miracles to make you feel clean without itching or infection. 

It’s now time to get involved. Problem with the status quo, good old toilet paper, is that  you can’t use the tissue paper alone to smear fecal matter on your skin. It doesn’t do the job. If you use the toilet bidet with no drying function, you may need to  dry your clothes before you put on your pants again. This is where the TP comes in.
