The Best Bidets to Buy for Your Home

Table of Contents

Perhaps the hardest supply to get during the pandemic was toilet paper. So, what can you do? Sure, you could use newspaper, a rag, or just simply take a shower; you could just order it online as well, but if you don't trust the delivery times or price, or if you're looking to make a change for health reasons, a bidet not only saves you money on toilet paper but it's also great in preventing chronic itching due to dryness. And if you have hemorrhoids, you know what we mean.

Using little to no toilet paper at all, a bidet is a bathroom fixture that bathes the genital and perineal areas of your body. It can be installed as a separate unit in your bathroom or fixated by your shower, sink, or toilet. The most common bidet designs have a nozzle that squirts a jet of water to help you clean your areas after a bowel movement, but you can also straddle over the device and lower yourself in position to either dip your buttocks into the large basin. It may seem like a funny tool to use — maybe uncomfortable — but the product is anything but and is a good alternative to toilet paper - especially during a pandemic. In this guide, we’ll highlight a number of products to show you some of the best models you can buy in Canada.

Choosing the Right Bidet for Your Home

Installing a bidet is a lot easier than you may think. Not only do they create less waste, save you money and clean you better, but some of the models are also reasonably priced. As you invest more money, you can get self-cleaning, soft-closing smart bidets. The mechanical option uses the water pressure and temperature of your home plumbing, while electric ones have little motors inside to enhance these functions. Electric bidets are more expensive but finding the right one comes down to your needs, your plumbing set-up and the size of your bathroom.

This is a cold-water bidet you attach to your current toilet seat.

The high-pressure faucet valves are made with a metal-ceramic core and braided steel hoses (instead of traditional plastic), and it also comes with a metal cold-water T-adapter.

The bidet has a single wash nozzle and dual chrome-plated control knobs that lets you select a mode and activate the spray then adjust the water pressure accordingly. Clearly defined settings on the control panel means it can be easily operated by children and the elderly, and as an added hygienic feature there is a guard gate that shields the nozzle and a self-cleaning sanitary nozzle that rinses that nozzle with fresh water.

The bidet is flexible and versatile. You can easily rinse up and down by simply flipping the sprayer over.

Perhaps you’ve heard about how hygienic a bidet is when it comes to cleaning up after going to the bathroom and how it also saves on toilet paper. Maybe you’d like to try a bidet in your home but you’re on a budget and don’t want to purchase something you won’t like. We understand that every dollar matters and that’s why we’ve added this manual-style budget-friendly model.

This slim bidet is only 6 mm thick and attaches to your current toilet seat. It has many of the functions of a more expensive model, but instead of it being electronic this model is manual meaning that you adjust the different functions yourself. There are two nozzles to choose from, one for the front and one for the rear, and what’s neat about this bidet is that it attaches to your cold and hot water inlets so you can adjust the temperature manually to suit your comfort level. And if you want to save water on hot water costs, you can just hook it up to the cold water pipe and it will work, too.

Reasons to Get a Bidet for Your Bathroom

Bidets are widely available in Canada and have been increasing in popularity over the last few years. In Japan, more than 60% of homes have a bidet and in South America that number is closer to 90%. At first you might think of a bidet as a funny fixture but there are actually a lot of benefits that come with getting one. Like trying anything new, it takes a bit of an adjustment at first but consider some of these benefits when buying:

  • Better Hygiene and Personal Cleaning: Even after you have a bowel movement and use toilet paper, you don’t always leave the bathroom feeling the cleanest. A bidet removes any residue left on your skin after you use the bathroom. Using water helps to soothe the area before you apply toilet paper or a wipe, too.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Obviously, as a toilet paper alternative, you don’t have to use much toilet paper with a bidet. The bleaching process used to manufacture toilet paper is very damaging to the earth and to people. So, why not save the trees and yourself?
  • Save Money: You’ll use a lot less TP, plain and simple. You might need a couple sheets to dry off but other than that you’re using a fraction of the amount you regularly use.
  • Better Skin Care: If you have hemorrhoids and any other anal irritations toilet paper might not be the best possible choice. You can soothe and clean the area with warm water, which is a huge benefit in getting a bidet. Anal itching can be an issue for people and that’s caused, at times, by toilet paper residue.
  • Avoid Plumbing Issues: Plumbers are expensive and when something goes wrong in your apartment or home the costs are virtually unavoidable. Bidets reduce plumbing issues and prevents clogs in your sewer pipes.

Different Between an Electronic Bidet and a Bidet Attachment

When buying it’s important to understand the difference between an electronic bidet and a non-electronic bidet seat attachment. Electronic bidets are typically more expensive and get their power from a standard electrical outlet. With an electronic bidet seat, you need to remove your original toilet seat. But in exchange, you’re getting a whole range of features that’s not possible with a non-electronic bidet attachment. The most notable feature often associated with electronic bidet seats is warm water. Most models also have an oscillating cleanse as well as adjustable water pressure and temperature based on the user’s preferences. There are some that have a warm air-dry feature and heated seats as well.

On the flip side, non-electronic bidet options are a little bit different. The most common form is the hand shower spray, which is similar to a handheld shower head found in some showers. The device is usually connected to the cold-water supply and you can keep it in reach of the toilet. Some of the more advanced models can be attached to the toilet between the bowl and seat. To install this correctly, you have to remove the toilet seat and make sure the bidet attachment is secured directly to the toilet. Once that is complete, you can re-install the toilet seat over the bidet.

While non-electronic bidet attachments clean more effectively and hygienically than toilet paper, the major drawback is that they use cold water whereas most people prefer warm water. Think carefully about your needs before buying and check out some of the varieties of models we have below to make your decision.

Bidet FAQs

It’s natural to have questions; we’re here to help. Check out some of the best questions some of our readers had about bidets.

How Often Should I Clean My Bidet?

You need to clean it at least once a week. You can use household detergent or a vinegar and water solution. Make sure you clean all the surfaces, including the underbelly of the seat. You can use a cloth or a toothbrush — whatever works.

Can You Use a Bidet Too Much?

It depends on the water pressure. Overuse can lead to irritation of the anus or vaginal areas. Some bidet models have strong settings so it’s important to test all of them out before getting comfortable with one particular setting. Understanding your skin’s sensitivity to prolonged water use will determine the outcome.

Is There a Proper Technique to Using a Bidet?

Use the toilet and dry wipe once with toilet paper to remove any remaining solid waste before using the bidet. Position yourself to use the bidet by straddling the bowl. It's acceptable to sit on the rim of the bowl, but many users will squat or “hover” over the bidet.
