All About Bidets
These days you see more and more North American bathrooms adopting the bidet to add more flare to their design. Already very popular in Europe a bidet can take any ordinary bathroom and add that extra flare. If you have ever travelled overseas to Europe you know how much the people who live there, both men and women, rely on the bidet. In fact, some of those people believe that not using a bidet is unhygienic.
Back home here in Canada the trend seems to be larger and more luxurious styled bathrooms. That said finding room for this hygiene product is much easier today then it was a few decades ago. Your standard bidet will have one of two types of sprayers, a vertical sprayer located close to the fronton the bowl or a movable nozzle which would be located close to the faucet handles. All bidets will have both cold and hot faucets and are usually outfitted with a pop-up drain. If your bathroom is not large enough to house both a toilet as well as a stand alone bidet you can find a combination toilet and bidet.
The installation process for a bidet is very similar to that of plumbing a bathroom sink. The only main difference between the two projects would be the fact that the bidet can have the waste line plumbed below the floor similar to that of a shower. However, just like your bathroom sink it is possible for the bidet to have single or multiple deck holes for faucets. That said, be sure that you purchase the components that match the style of bidet you choose for your installation.
