Own a similar style to these (also purchased from Meh) and it really makes you wonder how scraping literal crap from your butt using chopped up tree ever became popular. Don’t get fixated on the water not being heated as it might sound concerning, but turns out to be a non-issue (at least for me and yes, I live in a climate that gets sub-freezing). I cringe using other toilets now and being forced back into the asinine act of smearing feces around until you think things are clean enough.
Secondly, it kind of sucks in that you will be imprisoned by your dependence. No longer will the world be full of convenient places to defecate. Starbucks, McDonalds, that shady gas station bathroom will all be equally inferior to your glorious clean butt provided by your newly acquired butt bidet. You’ll be playing poo roulette with your colon more often than you’d like. Can you make it until the end of your shift? Can you hold it in for the entire drive home? Next thing you know, you’re buying “gifts” for your parents place…your best friend’s house, and surely you current significant other. However, you and I will know the truth. This isn’t truly a gift for them, that’s just a fortunate side benefit. It’s actually a gift for you, so you don’t have to rush home to your one toilet because it’s the only one you know of that has…a butt bidet!
Also, if you don’t have one of these. You have a dirty butt.
Also also, pairs well with that water detector if you’re concerned about your plumbing skills. Don’t cheap out on the hardware. Make sure to use a metal t joint and hose.
Some comments in the reviews that might be useful if these two things apply to you:
“It won’t work if you have 3/8” waterline. Due to the design fault, it won’t even work with standard 3/8 T adapter."
“Not compatible with my toilet seat (Kohler elongated). Have had a handyman here twice trying to install this. The screws that came with it were not long enough. Bought longer screws but still does not fit”
I’m already covered with both of my bathrooms but for this price I’m one as well jump on them for the future, just called mom and she wants 2 as well so A family that bidet’s together all has clean/ cleaner butts. Sending my sister the link next
@Badpookey@docflash Run water through the tap till hot water gets to the bathroom, then run the self clean function (sends water gushing down the back of the bowl) for a minute or two to purge the supply line.
[No, I don’t do that. I’m happy with the basic cold water model.]
I bought a similar one from Amazon, and while it lasted a year, the cheap plastic tubing connecting to the water line broke and flooded my whole second floor with cold water before I got a chance to notice. Invest a little more with a bidet that doesn’t rely on PVC.
@Gypsigirl213 Ok, so - I have similar G.I. issues.
I don’t have a model like this, I have a full toilet seat replacement model.
In my experience, there is a trade-off; personal clean-up is very much improved, toilet + bidet clean-up is not.
I really don’t want to get into graphic details, suffice it to say that cleaning the toilet has become a more unpleasant and labor intensive task. But(t) IMO, the comfort and cleanliness of using water to clean yourself off and then just a couple of dabs w/ TP to dry more than makes up for the extra mess beneath the rim (of the toilet!).
YMMV, of course and, to be fair - as a bachelor living alone, I tend to let the issue get out of hand.
A quick clean-up of the bowl after each use would go a long way but, ain’t nobody got time for that.
I agree, the plastic fittings and hose were a disappointment. Honestly I don’t trust plastic in any water situation. Nonetheless it didn’t work for me as I have a automatic seat. Couldn’t get it to fit properly at all. Had no regrets throwing both in the garbage.
@mbimeh-Okay, a tongue tied lady went into a bar & ordered a Beer. So, the dam bartender say, “That’s $3.50, please’”! She says,“Ohh, shit, Man,…okay’” & pays up. They talked a bit, then she orders a Rum & Coke & he says,“That’s $8.50!” She said, “Wow, that’s mighty High, but okay”! Then she asks for another Beer & pays the $3.50. She felt kinda respected since she was real tongue tied & rarely got much respect, so she tells the old bartender, “You’re okay, man.” He says, “Ah, you too, but I try to make my customers feel comfortable.” She decides to explain what she means, so says, “No, I mean, I’ve been here for 2 hr & you haven’t 1 time said anything bout me being tongue-tied, thanks.” He felt all warm, so he told her, “I appreciate you too because you ain’t once said anything about me being Humpback, so Thank you, really, Sweety.” Where she blurted out, “Is That Your Back? I Thought That Was Your ASS, Everything Else I So High Around Here”!!¡
@nolrak It’s really a non-issue. You’d think it would be and I had concerns before trying it, but it turns out not to matter. A cold seat is far more shocking to the system – the skin being sprayed just isn’t very sensitive to temperature.
Water temperature? Most of these have the water sitting in the pipes of the house before you use it. So whatever temp you have your house set to, the water will be at that same temp. So if you want warm water, turn on the furnace full blast! Or you can choose to be invigorated!!
@ripper69 I have one that connects to the hot and cold supply and you can set a temp. I find that the “cold” setting is usually just fine, and it only gets chily if you go for an extended wash in the winter long enough to flush the line so the “inside” temp water is clear.
Has anyone used this particular model? Any good? Does it get the backside clean well?
We actually have a bidet in the house, but due to layout, its not next to the toilet, so it ended up not getting used much. Trying to convince the spouse that an integrated unit would be good. But can’t get a piece of crap otherwise it will be a lost cause.
I love the one I got from morning save. Never poo without a bidet if I can help it. Bought one for my mom for Christmas (she asked for one) got this 2 pack so I can give one to each of my kids. Now I can poo away. Noticed someone said they had trouble putting on an elongated toilet seat. I don’t understand that issue because my toilet seat is elongated and I had no trouble at all. But I installed mine at the back of my toilet maybe they tried to put theirs at the front.
