Bidets – Plumbing Upgrades

Benefits of Installing Bidets

Benefits of Installing Bidets - Plumbing Upgrades

I did some research on bidets recently for one of our Tampa plumbing customers. They wanted two bidets installed in their existing bathrooms. They prefer that method of personal hygiene and wanted the best options available.  From what I found there are many bidet styles available. From stand alone fixtures, accessories that compliment your existing toilet, or very advanced systems that are integrated into the toilet seat itself. Although not as common in  the United States as in other parts of the world, bidets are becoming more popular in the United States.  Senior citizens and people suffering from any number of injuries and ailments find a bidet easier to use rather than twisting and reaching using conventional toilet paper. In addition, bidets can reduce skin irritation in a very sensitive area.

Environmental Benefits

The environmental benefits are also a big attraction in switching to a bidet. Bidets are more in line with “green” living as they reduce the amount of paper products used in your home.  By some estimates we use over 30 billion rolls of toilet paper a year in the U.S. alone. This translates to over 10 million trees and billions of gallons of water. Not to mention the innumerable gallons of chemicals used in the process of turning trees in to soft, convenient rolls of toilet paper. Bidets also make for healthier sewer lines as there is less paper product to cause clogged drains.  So, take an environmental stand, enjoy more comfortable hygiene experience, and experience fewer toilet and drain clogs. Look into investing in a bidet today.
