How to install a bidet in 10 steps



Are you considering upgrading your bathroom for a more luxurious and hygienic experience? Installing a bidet can revolutionize your toileting routine. Bidets offer enhanced cleanliness, comfort, and environmental friendliness. Follow this comprehensive 10-step guide to install a bidet—whether it’s a bidet attachment or a bidet toilet seat—to elevate your bathroom experience.


Step 1: Gather Tools and Materials

Before you begin, collect the necessary tools and your chosen bidet attachment or bidet toilet seat. You’ll typically need an adjustable wrench, screwdriver, and potentially a drill if the bidet requires installation with screws.

Step 2: Turn Off the Water Supply

Locate the shut-off valve behind your toilet and turn off the water supply. Flush the toilet to drain any remaining water from the tank and bowl.

Step 3: Remove the Existing Seat (for Bidet Seats)

If installing a bidet toilet seat, remove the existing toilet seat by unscrewing the bolts that attach it to the toilet bowl. Set the old seat aside.

Step 4: Install the T-Valve

For bidet attachments, locate the toilet’s fill valve and attach the bidet’s T-valve to it. Ensure a secure connection, and then connect the bidet’s hose to the T-valve.

Step 5: Attach the Bidet

Securely attach the bidet unit to the toilet bowl using the provided hardware. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the specific model you have chosen. Ensure a snug fit to prevent any wobbling.


Step 6: Secure the Bidet Toilet Seat

If you’re installing a bidet toilet seat, carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions to affix the bidet seat onto the toilet bowl. Tighten the seat securely using the provided hardware.

Step 7: Connect Water Supply (for Bidet Seats)

For bidet toilet seats, connect the bidet’s hose to the T-valve. Ensure a tight connection to prevent leaks.

Step 8: Turn On Water Supply

Once everything is securely connected, turn the water supply back on. Check for any leaks around the connections and make adjustments if necessary.

Step 9: Test the Bidet

Test the functionality of the bidet. Adjust the settings according to your preferences for water pressure, temperature (if applicable), and nozzle position.

Step 10: Enjoy Your Enhanced Bathroom Experience

Congratulations! Your bidet installation is complete. Enjoy the newfound comfort, cleanliness, and eco-friendliness that a bidet offers for a refreshing and satisfying toileting experience.

Remember, the installation process may vary depending on the type and model of the bidet you choose. Always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for specific guidelines tailored to your bidet attachment or bidet toilet seat. With this step-by-step guide, you can elevate your bathroom and embrace the convenience and hygiene a bidet brings to your daily routine.
