How to install it yourself?

Basic steps for assembling a hygienic shower or bidet cover

Installation work will depend on the type of bidet shower you choose. If you focus on the shower toilet, then its installation involves the same steps that are required in the process of mounting a conventional toilet. In addition, it is only necessary to supply water and install a mixer.

The bidet cover is mounted as follows:

  1. The water from the tank must first be drained by closing the shut-off valve after that.
  2. The next step is to remove the hose through which water flows into the tank.
  3. Next, remove the top cover from the toilet and install the tee. The tee should be connected to the tank using a special hose, after completing the subsequent installation of this element.
  4. A bolt should be inserted into the plug and into the base plate, and then the plate and all bolts and plugs are connected to the main part of the mechanism.
  5. The main mechanism is installed thanks to the holes made in the toilet bowl, securing the device with bolts, after which the nuts are tightly tightened and special plastic washers are attached.
  6. At the final stage, the mechanism is connected to a tee and the water supply is checked.

Wall-mounted models are mounted in two ways:

  1. Open mounting. The mixer is installed on the wall in such a way that the flexible hose connects to the shower head, and then hang the shower holder. In the process of installing a hose with a shower head and a mixer, gaskets should be placed between these elements.
  2. Concealed installation. Such mounting involves the creation of a special niche in the wall, followed by the laying of strobes in order to supply water to the mixer. The main mechanism is installed in the created niche, after which the joystick lever is installed, and a hose with a watering can is connected.

Reviews:

  1. Olga, g. Samara. “A hygienic shower is a wonderful thing, thanks to which you can easily pour a bucket of water and wash the cat litter box. And as for the inconveniences that some people focus on, this is generally a very controversial issue. After all, what will be comfortable for one person may not be so convenient for another. This is already a matter of tastes and preferences. Personally, if I had a place in the bathroom for a bidet, I still installed a hygienic shower because of all the advantages of this device. Moreover, running right after the toilet in a regular shower is somehow not very convenient, as for me, don't you think so? "
  2. Maxim, g. Arkhangelsk. “Personally, I would prefer a bidet over a hygienic shower. Especially if there is enough free space in the bathroom. I come from my own experience. When using the shower, there were often such incidents that completely spoiled the whole impression of buying such a compact device. Sometimes it was very difficult to establish a suitable water temperature that would be most comfortable for the intimate area. The jet was sometimes too cold, sometimes very hot, if the tap was on in the kitchen. You should also pay attention to the shape of the existing toilet. Because with a strong pressure of water, you can spray the entire bathroom floor, and this leads to the need to do daily cleaning and wipe all tiles after each wash. "
  3. Sveta, g. Moscow. “Because of my cleanliness husband, I had to install a hygienic shower. Personally, he is very pleased with everything, although water drips in the same way as from a regular shower. Fortunately, the fluffy rug that we placed on the floor saves. And I personally like the most ordinary shower, so I do not always understand such an indescribable delight of my husband. Although the cat's tray is very convenient to wash with the help of the hygienic option. In this regard, he was very useful to me. "
