bidet leaks


hi the bidet in our newly bought home is leaking so we turn off the water, I really need to get this fixed it was suppose to be fixed by the previous owners and they did not fix it right, and now it leaks all the time. We want to turn it off but the shut off valve in the back is not working. is there any help to show how to change the controls of just have it shut off in a different way so we can keep the water flowing in the house?

No one here can see your house so were not going to know where your shut off are.
Changing the shut off valve should take all of 5 min. so shutting off the main, relieving the pressure by opening up a sink faucet, remove the valve and replace with a new one is a pretty simple job.
Replace it with a 1/4 valve.
There's lots of differant sizes so you going to have to take a look at what you have to figure out what to repace it with.

I think joe meant to say a 1/4 turn valve. You may need an angle one or a straight on depending if your water supply is coming out of floor or wall?

The one on the right is the straight 1/4 turn valve. On the left is the angle 1/4 turn valve.

You have to put your arse on it, otherwise it will shoot up like a geyser and leak.
