Hi all,

Recently, I have installed a new Bidet in the bathroom, and now I have an issue with the wastewater flow. I have installed a non-return valve, around 1 meter away from the bidet, but the water would not flow properly, I suggest the pressure is not enough to open the valve, and lets the water flow, someone suggested to install an Air Admittance Valve, but this did not help, unfortunatly, the non return valve is unreachable now, so I cannot remove and test.

Is there any suggestion on how to increase the pressure on the valve to open it for water flow?

Thanks in advnace

howdy, if you have enough water to flush the bidet, it should be able to pass the valve. Is it just a check valve for the bidet drain? It is not necessary unless your local code requires it....
You might HAVE to get access to the valve and see if it is working, stuck,etc. Get rid of it if you can -- there will be future problems as the lines gradually build up STUFF...... good luck

Why dont you install a portable bidet that Chesp,saves time and space?
it sits under your toilet seat ,a hose connects to the back of your water supply(usually a tap) no electricity or batteries it just works on water preassure and onlly needs 2 bars preassure..(standard toilets usually have 3 bars) installs 4 min

hope this helps
