Bidet is rather popular bathroom equipment in many modern houses and apartments. But do you know how to install a bidet seat? – Let’s discuss this process in details. As an example we have taken a classical bidet, represented by floor type with the faucet water supply.
As a rule, it is located in a very close distance to the toilet bowl. But you should take into account the so called “working” zone. The minimum distance is 70 cm (the width of the bathroom equipment plus the area around it).
Before installing a bidet you should carefully read the instructions and check whether all the necessary details are available. First of all you need to deal with the holes in the bowl. There is a standard amount of them.
They are tree in the complete. Upper is used for mounting a mixer, the other two are located within the container and are used for overflow and siphon.
The mixer has one feature that is useful for its use. – A sprinkler attachment, which allows to change the direction of water depending on the destination.
The mixer and siphon setting
In order to connect the mixer to the water source you would require two thin pipes, reinforced by exterior metal braiding. The mixer setting is represented by a few steps, some of which are associated with pulling the pipes: fix the ends of the hoses in the sockets of the mixer; insert them into the specially provided holes on the shelf (at the top of the bowl); fasten faucet by the screw of a suitable size.
Fixing to the floor
Arrange the bathroom equipment on the necessary place and check if there is enough length of pipes. On the floor mark the attachment points.
The edges of the equipment, which are adjacent to the floor surface, should be additionally treated with silicone.
Connection to the sewage system
Sewer pipes should be prepared in advance. It is important to make the wiring so that the hose attachment points are just around the bidet. The shorter pipes you have, the better your system will work.
Open tubes provide an excellent opportunity to find out a leak in time and to make its quick repair. But in most cases water and sewage systems are hidden inside the wall behind the plastic or gypsum panels.
Sometimes the connection of the bidet to the sewage is made after all pipes have been already hidden in the wall. On the surface we can see only 3 remaining outputs – one for sink and two for hot and cold water. Attach the hose to the water supply system and discharge pipe should be inserted into the sewer pipe socket.
The final stage involves testing by the water supply.
