Frequently Asked Questions
WHY USE A BIDET?
The short answer? For your HEALTH and WELLBEING Imagine instead of a shower or bath you started each day by grabbing a tissue and wiping your face and underarms, would you feel clean? The bidets we supply cleanse your private parts with a stream of pure filtered warm water and then dries you with a gentle temperature controlled air flow every time you use it. Leaving you feeling fresh and clean. No amount of toilet paper can clean you as well as the washing and drying functions performed by an electronic bidet.
I THOUGHT BIDETS WERE ONLY FOR WOMEN?
That is a popular misconception the bidet is highly recommended by health specialists for use by both men and women. 1/ our bidet has 2 cleansing nozzles .one being for cleansing of the bottom and the other for the exclusive cleansing of the vagina area. 2/ for women who want more effective feminine hygiene during monthly menstrual cycles the bidet is the best way to accomplish this task
IS IT EASY TO INSTALL?
The bidet can be installed directly to the existing plumbing of your toilet . All the parts required are included, and the instructions are easy to follow. The only thing that you will have to do, after connecting the plumbing, is to plug the unit into a wall socket. And if you don't want to do it your self, any handyman or plumber can install your bidet in a few minutes.
IS THE BIDET SAFE TO USE ON A SEPTIC SYSTEM?
Yes. As no toilet paper products are required and the water is purified by the in built filter, the installation of our bidet system is probably the best thing for your septic system.
HOW MUCH WATER DOES IT USE?
Not much. About 2 glasses of water (500ml) per average wash. You use 4 times this amount (2 litres ) when you wash your hands. Did you know that a 10 minute shower can use as much as 120 litres so the amount of water you would use using the our bidets over a whole year could be less than having 2 ten minute showers 3/. A lot of water is used in the manufacturing processes required to produce the toilet paper and a lot of chemicals and dioxins are used in this process If you don't use toilet paper apart from saving money every week ,you will also be doing your part in reducing the pollution discharged into streams and rivers, generated by the manufacture of toilet paper.

Our bidets supplied by The Bidet Shop are the most advanced bidets on the market today . They feature an instantaneous heating system that heats the water instantly while you use it . They have no internal tank that require heating as all other bidet have and we all know what problems may occur with water sitting warm in a container over a few days. So the water supplied by our bidets is as fresh and clean as possible. Also, our bidets have two separate cleansing nozzles one for the bottom and one for the ladies so cross contamination that may occur with single nozzle bidets can't occur Many of the bidets that we have considered for introduction into the New Zealand market ,have passed the European ,American and Asian safety standards but fall short of meeting the strict New Zealand standards requirements, and are therefore rejected.
Our range of bidets are probably the most affordable bidets on the market today when compared to bidets of equal standard and quality. Over a 2 year period the money an average family with 3 children will save on toilet paper alone, will offset a major portion of the price of a bidet
