What Is a Bidet?

A bidet is a bathroom fixture that, after you finish your business, cleans your backside and genitals using a concentrated stream of water. A bidet connects to your home’s water source and pressurizes the water in a focused spray to clean. The water goes through a specially designed nozzle that funnels it to target either the bottom or genitals depending on the setting the user selects.

There are a variety of settings and modes that the user can select from depending upon the type of bidet. Some settings automatically disperse water with a predetermined amount of pressure to clean a specific area. Others allow the user to manually adjust the pressure as needed for a desired wash. Some bidets offer temperature control allowing the user to select the desired temperature for maximum comfort.

Designed for use by men and women, bidets come in various styles and price points and with varying features. Some models, for example, include a female-specific wash (Feminine Wash) intended to thoroughly clean female genitals. This is more luxury feature as all bidets will clean female genitals. The Feminine Wash setting adjusts the nozzle and spray to target female area without the user needing to adjust their position.

What Is a Bidet Toilet?

A bidet toilet is an integrated, all-in-one system that combines the function of a toilet with the features of an electric bidet. It completely replaces your current home toilet. It needs to be connected to the plumbing system in order to flush waste, as well as an electrical outlet for power. A bidet toilet offers the most features and is considered the most luxurious option.

What Is a Bidet Seat?

A bidet seat is an electric-powered bidet that only replaces your existing toilet’s seat.

The device uses your existing toilet to flush away the waste as normal while offering the functionality of a bidet to wash and clean. They’re easy to install at home, requiring only a water hookup and an electrical outlet as their power source.

Bidet seats are popular because they're more affordable than a bidet toilet, and still come packed with features like a heated seat and temperature-controlled water. Many also come with an Enema setting for constipation relief.

Consider purchasing a bidet seat if you’re looking to make your bathroom experience more enjoyable.

What Is a Bidet Attachment?

A bidet attachment is a non-electric option that attaches to your toilet, under the seat. It’s simple to use and operate and still offers a satisfying wash. A budget-friendly option, bidet attachments simply get the job done. They’re easy to install and don’t require a lot of knowledge to set up. Some of the features they offer include pressure-controlled wash, warm water wash, and self-cleaning nozzles. They only require a warm water and cool water hookup to operate.
