Installing a bidet toilet seat is much easier than you may imagine. Most products can be installed easily at home without any assistance from a professional. You don’t need to be a DIY expert to complete this task. Your bidet toilet seat will come with clear instructions for installation of your specific model. You should always follow the directions that you are given carefully for proper installation. If you’re concerned about the basics of bidet installation, and whether or not you’re up to the task, read on for a more comprehensive look at how a bidet toilet seat will fit into your home.

Most Bio Bidet toilet seats either replace your current toilet seat entirely, or fit along the back of the toilet seat. In order to install your bidet toilet seat, you will need to first remove the existing seat. If your bidet includes an entire seat, you will simply install this where the previous seat was. If the bidet does not include a seat, you will usually install the bidet fixture first, and then replace your existing toilet seat on top of it to hold the fixture in place. The bidet nozzles are then located beneath the toilet seat and can extend as needed.
You bidet will require a source of water. Most options connect directly to your clean water pipe. This is simpler than it seems. You just shut off the water and install a t-valve on the pipe. This valve allows the pipe to supply water to the toilet as before while also providing an extra valve that will be connected to the bidet. After the bidet toilet seat has been properly installed, you can connect the water hose from the bidet seat to the t-valve. Be sure to follow the instructions you’re given and use all the nuts and bolts appropriately.
Finally, your bidet toilet seat may need a source of electricity. Not all bidets require this. However, if your bidet does need electricity, you must find a nearby outlet to plug the bidet into. If your bidet comes with a wireless remote, there are a few more steps you’ll need to take. First, you need to make sure the remote has batteries. Secondly, if the remote comes with a special bracket, you’ll need to mount this as directed. This is usually done with screws. Keeping the wireless remote in the bracket helps to protect this important feature from accidental drops which may damage the device.
