Buying Your First Toilet Seat Bidet | Review Bidets

Buying Your First Toilet Seat Bidet

If you haven’t bought a bidet before, it’s understandable to find yourself a little unsure about your purchase.  Toilet seat bidets, after all, are still in the process of gaining popular use in the US and many still aren’t familiar with how they work.

First things first, though.  If you’re buying a toilet seat bidet, you have to take note of two important things: your existing toilet and your budget.  Since it will be an add-on accessory to your bathroom fixture, you will have to make sure any bidet you buy will fit snugly as a replacement for your toilet seat.  Four variations of toilets (either one-piece or two-piece elongated and one-piece or two-piece round) are usually found in homes and you’ll have to arm yourself with that information before shopping for your bidet.

As for establishing a price, there’s a wide range of options in toilet seat bidets.  The cheapest and simplest units can run as low as $40, while complete sets with a barrage of features installed can retail for as high as the low four-figures.

While cheap bidets are available, we highly recommend investing in a moderately priced unit ($250 to $500) from trusted brands like Toto, Coco Bidet, Bio Bidet, and Brondell.  You can expect bidets to be widely used inside the home (especially if you’re planning to eliminate toilet paper in its presence), so a moderate investment should be a smart choice in exchange for a higher quality of build.

As for features, expect your costs to add up with each extra function your bidet facilitates.  If you have the budget for the extra expense, they should be worth every penny, though.  Some features I personally consider necessities for new bidet owners include:

  • adjustable water pressure (helps cleansing a lot)
  • adjustable water temperature (for hard-to-remove dirt)
  • warm air dryer (for drying your wet bum)

Other features that are not real necessities but you may find of value include:

  • heated seats
  • remote controls
  • seat sensors
  • hydraulic lids
  • built-in deodorizer

Hopefully, that’s enough to get you started on your road to buying your first toilet seat bidet.

    We bought Coco bidet the basic model for our 2 restrooms a few months back and ended up ordering one more for the third restroom…Very easy to install, took 15 minutes.Kids never used a bidet before but our whole family is enjoying the benefits of it and is glad we have them in the whole house.The water is not heated in the basic model which we have, was cold for only about a week in winter, nothing unbearable though. It is an excellent buy.We are always going to have a bidet in our house from now on.A must have….highly recommend it.

    We bought the Coco 9500R bidet; and, have nothing bad to say about it. We were a little apprehensive about having a bidet; but, after visiting Europe, and seeing that they are the norm there – why not. The conversion from a standard seat to the bidet model is easy. All you really need is a GFCI electrical outlet near the toilet. The rest is easy. And, they really are a major advance in sanitary care. Good job, Coco.

    What about non-electric bidet seats. The BBi3000 gets written up as excellent, but by people who are trying to sell them.

    Can anyone suggest an enema function bidet toilet seat w/strong water pressure? The Bio Bidet 1000 and the Clean Sense Dib 1500 seem to be on that list. The Coway BA-13 is at the top of the list from this website but I may be missing the specs for an an enema setting if there is one? As I’m getting older this is becoming an important feature. Thanks
