BIDET INSTALLATION

BIDET INSTALLATION

Bidets are becoming increasingly popular among consumers since they are less expensive and more effective than traditional toilet paper. You may believe that connecting them to the line is as straightforward as plugging them in. However, a stand-alone bidet or built-in bidet, with superior functionality, also requires an intricate plumbing connection and professional plumbing knowledge to install.

When it comes to bidets, it’s critical that they’re installed by a professional to minimize leakage and backflow, which may lead to contamination of your toilet water supply if not done properly. At Plumbing Hamilton, we can assure you that your new bidet will be fitted the way it should be. Let our plumbers do the job for you!

Types of Bidet

Even if you have a small bathroom with no space for a fixture, you can still install a bidet. Bidets come in various shapes and sizes, from full-sized toilets to toilet-seat attachments.

Stand-alone Bidets

The term “stand-alone” bidet refers to the fact that it sits side by side with the toilet bowl within the bathroom but is entirely distinct from it. There are two ways to place this bidet: on the wall like a urinal or the floor like a toilet.

Portable or Travel Bidets

Individuals who travel often or who are constantly on the move might choose this type. Using a bidet bottle, maybe convenient and eliminate the risk of skin irritation from regular toilet paper use.

Spray or Handheld Bidets

A spray-type is the most convenient alternative for most individuals since it allows more control over the water flow and can be easily connected to toilet plumbing. It also provides additional control over the water pressure.

Toilet Seat or Built-in Bidets

This type of bidet is often called “combos,” which combine a toilet and a bidet into a single unit. It’s a toilet seat with slanted spray jets to make cleaning more accessible and efficient.

Bidet Attachments

It is a form of bidet that fits neatly under an existing toilet bowl seat. They are often inexpensive and environmentally friendly, much like a classic bidet, but with a modern twist.

Things to consider before a Bidet Installation

If you’re unsure what type of bidet is best for your bathroom, in that case, you may opt to consult a plumbing professional that can give you advice on the workarounds and compatibility of your preferred bidet with your unit’s rough-in requirements and layout.
The rough-in specifications determine the size and position of the pipes in the subfloor and walls. Certain rough-in standards must be met when installing a bidet. It’s advisable to ask a plumber to verify if the bidet, the supply, and the drain pipes in your walls and floors are in the fits teh manufacturer’s requirements.
Bidets, like faucets, include mixing valves that let you set the rinse water temperature to your preference. This necessitates having access to both hot and cold water sources. According to the plumbing code, a “vacuum breaker” that prevents water from making a backflow must also be used with bidet supplies.
A special frame is necessary Before you can put up the drywall and place the tile on a wall-mounted bidet. All plumbing connections may be found on the wall for this kind of bidets, where mounting bolts attached to this frame protrude. As opposed to this, the drain for a floor-mounted is located on the ground.
When deciding on your bidet configuration, You should always contact a professional plumber to ensure that the rough plumbing is put exactly where it should be according to the bidet installation instructions.

How our plumbers install a bidet?

While a bidet may seem just another bathroom fixture, the installation process is quite different from a toilet. This task takes basic plumbing equipment and some knowledge of carpentry and plumbing to do successfully. Here’s how our skilled plumbers install different bidets:

For Stand-Alone Bidets

Preparing the unit
Our plumber will review the plumbing layout in the bidet’s installation instructions to ensure they’re not missing any stuff. They will also ensure that the bidets can be connected fitting to the drain on either the floor or wall of the bathroom
Installing of water supply hose to the bidet

Our plumber will connect your bidet to the water supply valve on the bathroom wall. They will run hot and cold water lines to meet the rough-in specifications for the bidet.

Sealing of bidet
After securing the hose, Our plumber will make markings and drillings on the floor or wall to attach the Stand-alone bidet the same way we attach a toilet.
Connecting of Water Lines
When everything is set up, it’s finally time to connect all the hot and cold water lines to their appropriate water lines and drainage lines.

For Toilet Seat and Handheld Bidet

A toilet seat bidet doesn’t require the extensive construction that a floor-based bidet does. However, it requires more meticulous dealing with connecting the inlet and hose and mounting the toilet seat, especially if it’s electric powered. Our plumbers will ensure that the installation of a toilet seat bidet is meticulously done and adhere to the manufacturer’s requirements.
Removing the toilet seat
Our plumber will remove the old toilet seat by unscrewing the caps and lids from the mounting holes.

Mounting the bidet seat
Our plumber will first place the mounting bracket over the two mounting holes, followed by the guide rails and bolts. Finally, they will now install your bidet seat to the mounting bracket.
Hooking the bidet to a water supply
Our plumber will now use the T-connection with the bidet seat to secure the water supply. The T-connection divides the water into two ways: one is for the toilet while the other is for the bidet use.
Final Check
Before turning on the water, our plumber will examine all the mounting brackets, guide rails, bolts, nuts, and T-connections. As soon as the water is running, he’ll check for any probable leaks.
