Mistakes When Buying A Bidet Toilet Seat

Mistakes When Buying A
Bidet Toilet Seat

Purchasing a bidet toilet seat should be an exciting time, but there are a few things that can put a damper on your experience. Follow this guide to make sure you avoid the most common (and frustrating) buying errors and help the experience go smoothly.

There are Two Bidet Toilet Seat Shapes

One of the most important first steps is to make sure that you have the right size in mind for your bidet toilet seat. If you decide to go with a non-electric attachment, this step won’t matter, but electronic bidet seats will need to be the correct shape for best results.

Toilets come in two different sizes - round or elongated. If you have a round size toilet you should purchase a round size bidet seat. And if you have an elongated size toilet you should purchase an elongated size bidet seat. Elongated bidet seats are going to be the longer of the two, with the round toilet shape being a bit shorter. If a visual is not enough to confirm, measure your toilet. You should measure from the mounting holes (the two holes which secure the toilet seat to the porcelain) to the very front outside edge of the toilet. Elongated toilets will measure 17.5 inches or more while round size toilets will be 17 inches or less.

Verify Your Power Source

If you are looking to install an electronic bidet, you will need to verify that you have a proper power source first. Power cords on bidet seats are typically only 38 inches long, so an outlet near the toilet is the best scenario. While extension cords can be used, this should be viewed as a temporary solution since the best long-term solution is to have an outlet installed within reach of your bidet.

Get The Bidet You Want

One of the biggest sources of regret when buying a bidet seat is not getting what you actually want. Spend a little extra and go for the bonus features and what sparks your interest. There are various features that can be found in bidet toilet seats and you spend way too much time in the bathroom to settle for average.

Conclusion

Make sure that purchasing a bidet seat is a fun, painless experience by ensuring the system will fit and function in your bathroom. If modifications are necessary to make the system work, consider completing them before buying the bidet. Lastly, ensure that you will stay happy with your bidet seat indefinitely by purchasing one with all of the features you want.
