Why should I get a bidet?

Cleaner.  Softer. Sustainable.  That's our mantra here at Bidets Best, and that's not just lip service.  Once you try a bidet, you'll be asking yourself how you possibly managed to go all your life laboriously tearing through roll after roll of wasteful toilet paper, trying to cleanse, only to inevitably know deep down that you're not nearly as clean and refreshed as you would like to be.  In a nutshell, bidets are simply cleaner, faster, more comfortable, environmentally conscious, and soothingly therapeutic for a multitude of medical conditions, including Crohn's, IBS, hemorrhoids, and constipation.

Do I have to purchase and install a whole new toilet to replace the old?

No.  While we do offer completely integrated bidet toilets that would replace your old toilet, we also offer bidet seats, which can easily be DIY installed to replace your current toilet seat atop your existing toilet in a matter of minutes.

Do I have to hire an electrician to install a new power outlet?

While most electric bidet model power cords will reach an outlet up to six feet away, we also offer non-electric bidet seats that require absolutely no power source, and function simply via the water pressure from your tap located behind the toilet.

Is the water that sprays out even hygienically safe?

Yes.  It's the same water from your household tap from which you're probably drinking.  That said, we also offer water filter attachments that can add an extra level of filtration to the bidet seat water source if so desired.

Do I have to clean the bidet after each use?

Most of our models feature retractable nozzles with self-cleaning capabilities, however it is encouraged that you clean your bidet with an all-purpose cleaner as often as you would normally clean your toilet -- no more, no less.

Isn't the water very cold to the touch?

If you choose an electric bidet seat, the water can be heated to the precise temperature you desire.  If you choose a non-electric model, the water derives directly from the tap, so it can vary from room temperature to cool.  Most users describe the sensation as that of a refreshing breeze on a warm summer day.

What are the environmental benefits of using a bidet?

It requires the mulching of 31.11 million trees per year to supply all U.S. households with their requisite toilet paper needs. Needless to say, by switching to a bidet, you can immediately do your part to have a positive impact on reducing that number, and on the climate change implications that come with it.  Additionally, recent studies have found that most toilet paper is replete with potentially cancer-causing PFAS, also known as "forever chemicals," and that these chemicals inevitably make their way into our rivers, lakes and drinking water, polluting the environment indefinitely.

Isn't a bidet too expensive?

To the contrary.  The average American household uses over 400 toilet paper rolls per year, according to Forbes magazine.  That can translate to up to $350 in annual savings by switching to a bidet.  A bidet literally pays for itself over a short period of time.
