I received an Electric Bidet from bioBidet to facilitate this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
Did you realize the bidet is an invention from furniture makers dating back to the 17th century!? I had no idea! I’ve been hearing about Bidets for years now but never took the leap to actually try one… till now! So if you’re like me, this post is for you! I’m sharing all the info you need to make a decision on if a Bidet is the right choice for you and your family.
What Is A Bidet?
A full bidet is a bowl or receptacle designed to be sat on for the purpose of washing the human genitalia, perineum, inner buttocks, and anus. The modern variety includes a plumbed-in water supply and a drainage opening and is thus a type of plumbing fixture subject to local hygiene regulations. The bidet is designed to promote personal hygiene and can be a completely separate fixture, or now can be added to your current toilet for space saving, easy use. The latter is often times referred to as an ‘add on bidet’.
Why Choose A Bidet?
Better Personal Hygiene:
Personal hygiene is more easily improved and maintained more accurately with the combined use of both toilet paper and a bidet, compared the use of toilet paper alone. Addressing hemorrhoids and genital health issues might also be facilitated by the use of bidet fixtures.
More Eco Friendly:
With the use of an add on bidet, little or no toilet paper is necessary; helping save on resources. Last year, when toilet paper was in short supply, this became even more important. “Scientific American has also reported that if the US switched to using bidets, 15 million trees could be saved every year.”
Easy To Use:
Bidets are becoming increasingly popular for the simple fact that they are easy to use. All ages and different abled people have been able to master the use of bidets. This includes elderly and handicapped, affording greater independence to some who may have had to rely on others before.
Why Choose An Add-On Bidet?
As mentioned above, you can purchase a separate fixture bidet or an add on bidet. The add on bidet options make it easy to convert an existing toilet and comes at a much lower cost.

The bioBidet Ultimate Series Seat is an easy-to-use model that has lots of great features. As a complete bidet newbie, I’m extremely pleased with the easy of install as well as the performance of this add on bidet.
- Dual posterior/anterior nozzle delivers an aerated pulsing wash
- Oscillating wide clean
- Self-cleaning nozzle for low maintenance
- Hydraulic seat and lid help limit contact with the hands
- Heated seat for cold weather
- Auto-wash mode starts a full wash sequence and warm-air dry with 1 touch

We did have an electrician come out and add a plug-in behind the toilet to keep that mostly out of view as I didn’t want a cord coming around the front of the toilet. Then, we just hooked the water up to the toilet directly.
Overall, the bioBidet has been extremely easy to use and a great addition to our bathroom! If you have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I’ll try to answer.

I’m a city girl turned country by my awesome husband and we have three busy boys and two darling daughters. I love spending time with my family, reading Karen Kingsbury novels, and catching up with friends while our kiddos have play dates. I’m blessed beyond measure and can’t wait to see what God has in store.
