Homeowners who are interested in installing a bidet have many options to choose from. Traditional standalone units are installed beside the toilet, and they are suitable for larger bathrooms. In smaller bathrooms, homeowners may choose to install a bidet seat or attachment on their current toilet. Another option is to remove the existing toilet and install a combined bidet toilet in its place.
The type of bidet that a homeowner chooses has a major effect on the cost of the project. Adding a bidet seat to an existing toilet is a relatively inexpensive project compared to removing an existing toilet and installing a combined unit. Adjustments may need to be made to the plumbing before installation, which can add a significant amount to the final cost. The bidet's features also affect its price. Homeowners can expect to pay more for deluxe bidets with features such as programmable user settings or deodorizing capabilities.
Installing a bidet can be a complicated task. To install a standalone bidet, a plumber may need to run new lines for hot and cold water and install a new drain. These lines need to be installed correctly, or they could leak. Combined bidet toilet units can be similarly challenging since the old toilet needs to be removed before the new unit can be carefully set in place. For a smooth installation, homeowners should consider consulting a plumber.
