    Having some remodeling done and it is an option that I'd not considered before. Does anyone have one installed at home? Opinions or observations are appreciated.

    I don't have one, but I wish I did. I spent a couple of years living in Brazil and i had them in a couple of the apartments I lived in. I was a bit weirded out by them at first, but then I tried it. I like them and wish that I had one in my home.

    What's it feel like? I guess you wipe first then use it? Also is the water cold?
  4. Don't you have to use shampoo first?

    I never used a bidet, but I almost got electrocuted by a toilet in Paris. It was an unpleasant experience. Does that count?

    I would love one. They make toilets with built-in bum squirters too. Some day ...

    Feels like a shower on your butt. That's about it.

    As for wiping first, nope. That's the point of a bidet. They are there to clean you off after you do your business, and they do a great job. Much better than toilet paper ever can.

    I think that they are more common in places where putting your TP in the toilet causes the sewer system to backup and creates problems. The alternative in places like that is a trash can for everyone to put their used paper in sitting next to the toilet. I'd rather take a butt shower than have that next to the toilet stinking up the place.

    we have a bidet, a cold water version, although there are also warm water versions available. it feels, as devo_stevo says, like a shower on your butt. it gets you much cleaner, and for those who find wiping with TP irritating, a bidet is much more comfortable. i use a little TP to dry off after using it.

    I've heard of a toilet that fully cleans you. Not just a bidet. I don't know how it gets all up in there with the necessary friction to actually wipe, but it's apparently out there.

    You're in LA aren't you? I think a cold water bidet in northern climes in the winter would be a little too chilly. I saw an ad for an add-on device, but it hooks up to the toilet supply line, so it would be a cold water version.

    I started pushing random buttons on the control panel of one of those space-age thrones years ago in Japan and received a cold water blast that continued to shower my back as I jumped off.

    yes, i am, and i'm sure there are places where a cold water bidet would be brutal.

    there are add on devices that will work with the sink line somehow, too. here's a few kinds
    Luxe Bidet Neo 320 - Self Cleaning Dual Nozzle - Hot and Cold Water Non-Electric Mechanical Bidet Toilet Attachment (blue and white) - - Amazon.com
    SmarterFresh Warm Water Bidet Sprayer, Hot and Cold Bidet for Spray Faucet - Hand Held Bidet Faucet Sprayer, Toilet Water Spray Hose Attachment for Sink - - Amazon.com
    HANEBATH Toilet Bidet Sprayer Set with Hot and Cold Mixing Valve -Strong Water, Chrome - - Amazon.com

    important tip about an add-on bidet is that you can just add it on, but the water will be powerful and you'll need to be careful OR there's some kind of regulator you can get so the water won't come out at firehose strength. me, i just turn it on very gradually - we didn't bother with the regulator, but next time we get one, we will.

    I have one that adds on the toilet. Would never go back to just paper.

    A friend of mine is a custom home builder, and one of his signatures is installing a urinal in the main bath. Evidently husbands love it, and wives love it even more.

    Just a thought if you're looking to do something a little different.

  19. I miss having the bidet hose like nearly every bathroom in Thailand has:


    If your pressure is high enough, you can break stuff loose that you never knew was up there.
