The bidet is a household item typically placed next to the toilet and used for the cleansing of the private parts. Usually, the bidet is a separate fixture mounted next to the toilet, but you can also get attachments that can be added to an existing toilet. As with any toilet fixture, bidets come with a number of options for you to choose from. These include a wide range of bidet designs to select from and some extra luxuries to add on if you’re interested. Some bidet designs feature warm water jets to clean off the genitalia. While a water heating technology doesn’t come with non-electric bidets, some units allow you to switch between two water sources, allowing you to connect one hose to your water heater (the same one that heats your shower, for instance).
