When talking about bidets it is important to note the two main differences. There are bidets that are their own separate unit that is installed next to the toilet, and there are bidet seats that are installed on toilets
For the purposes of this post, we will be referring to the bidet seats as that is the main bidet we deal with in the Sarasota, Bradenton, and Venice areas.
There are many types of bidet seats available on the market. So which one is the best choice for you?
One of the biggest factors to decide on when choosing a bidet seat is whether it will require an electrical outlet or not. For the ones that do you will need an outlet close to the toilet to plug the seat in.
Look at the features and decide if it is worth the extra price of a bidet seat that plugs in versus a bidet seat that is fully manual. Also, keep in mind that an electrician can install an outlet for you, it is all just a matter of what you want to pay for the features you would like.
The simple types of bidet seats have two dials on the side of the toilet, one is on/off for one of the two sprayers, and the other dial for water pressure. These do not require an outlet and will be among the least expensive options around.
After that, you start to get fancier when you add the ability to plug the bidet seat in. You have a remote to turn on the bidet, adjust the angle and pressure of the spray, turn on a seat warmer, etc. They can automatically raise the seat when you walk over to the toilet and close it when you are done.
There are a lot of options on the market, once you have determined your price range, features you want, and found out about the electrical, then it’s just finding the one you want!
