The toilet is a familiar element of the bathroom or toilet. But the bidet is less common. Although those who installed it in their apartment, talk about the convenience of this sanitary and hygienic equipment. Often bidets are not used because of the lack of free space. But for such apartments there is an original solution - a toilet bowl together with a bidet function.
The toilet bowl looks like a familiar toilet bowl. If you look closely, you can see that the cup is a little longer, and the tank is bigger. It is there that the electronic equipment that controls the work of the bidet is located. It includes a heating device and several other devices.
Such toilet-bidets have a stationary nozzle or choke, which is put forward only before use. The second type is more convenient and hygienic.
The floor toilet with bidet can be both expensive and budget.
Products priced at $ 1800 provide water of a certain temperature, blow the body parts with a hair dryer. You can control the processes with the help of the DPU. The microlift will smoothly lower the seat.
Budget models costing from $ 200 are deprived of these "bloat." In order for the water to be heated, it is necessary to connect the bidet to the pipes with hot water. If there is no such service in your apartment, you will have to be content with the cold.
They make it possible to save space in the toilet, simplify cleaning and improve the quality of hygiene procedures. Since the outlet sewer pipe is located above the floor level, so this plumbing is not so quickly soiled. Tanks of such toilet bowls are hidden from prying eyes for installation.
Do not be afraid that the device will fall under the weight of the seated owner. Suspended toilet-bidet can withstand loads up to 400 kg. This is facilitated by a solid metal frame on which it is attached.
To make it easier to connect the electronic part to the network, in some models a corrugated pipe and a jar are provided.
Suspended toilet-bidets are becoming more popular every day, the number of their sales is constantly increasing.

Alternatives to the electronic bidet
