For anyone who has heard the word 'Bidet' for the first time, it is a fixture intended to clean the human solid waste with water.
This is the most hygienic way of cleaning human solid waste. Yes, ditch the papers!!
Step 1: Precheck
Step 2: Shop for Bidet
You can choose a Cold water only Bidet or a Cold or Hot water combo Bidet. I chose a one that had option to switch between Cold and Hot water or just neutral.
Once on receiving the bidet, make sure the water pressure knob is at zero/low position.
Step 3: Tools Required
1. Adjustable Wrench
2. Knife/Scissors (to cut tube)
3. Flat Screw Driver/File (to cut portion from basin separator) - This is optional
Step 4: Remove Seat Cover
Step 5: Drain Tank
Once drained the tank completely, remove the nozzle attached to the bottom of the tank (pic 2).
Step 6: Attach 15/16" Adapter
Usually cold water is sent to drain tank and hence 15/16" adapter would be in plastic construction. The metal adapter is supposed for hot water.
Now connect the open plastic end of the adapter to the tube that was initially removed from tank (pic 2).
Step 7: Make a Small Hole in Was Basin Separator
Step 8: Shut Hot Water Inlet
Shut the hot water valve by switching the nozzle position perpendicular to the tube.
Using adjustable wrench, unscrew the nozzle attached to the hot water fitting.
Step 9: Attach 9/16" Adapter
Now connect the open end of the adapter to the tube that was initially removed from wall fitting (pic 2).
Step 10: Attach Tube to Hot Water Inlet
Now insert the tube fully to the small opening in the middle of 9/16" adapter and screw it to hand tightness.
Step 11: Pass the Hot Water Tube Outside
The remaining portion would be used for cold water inlet.
Step 12: Attach Tube to Cold Water Inlet
Now insert the tube fully to the small opening in the middle of 15/16" adapter and screw it to hand tightness (pic 3).
Step 13: Attach the Hot and Cold Water Tubes to Bidet
Now insert the hot and cold water tubes to appropriate nozzles in the bottom of the bidet. Then screw them to hand tightness with the screws over the tube.
Step 14: Secure the Bidet and Place the Seat Cover Over
Adjust the hole to hover over the closet hole. Now place the seat cover on top of bidet and screw both bottom ends.
Step 15: Open Nozzles
Once done, twist the water pressure switch to two or third speed and you must get a steady flow of water around.
Ensure caution as the water would spill out of the closet. If positioned opposite, might get wet.
Step 16: Its Done!!
Once practiced, you will feel very comfortable and would just think how have you lived without this so far.
Some bidets have something called "Women Clean". Although I haven't used it much, it is supposed for women to clean during menstrual cycle.
Also, toggle between hot and cold waters for season specific usage.
Personal hygiene also starts with a fresh clean.
