Bidot advice


Not to sure if I will get much help on this subject. Can any one recommend a bidot seat or such attachment that will go on my toilet? I had a toto one a while back that I bought new for 350 bucks through a friend. I check today and they are around 1200 dollars. I can spend up to $300 dollars. Have been looking at some of the under $100 dollar ones and not sure if they are safe as far as leaks go. No room for a full bidot.

Save yourself a buck and just put another shutoff within handsreach of the setter. Run 1/4" flex copper up and under the seat. Leave it long, then cut off so that about 1/2" protrudes past the seat.

Now take a crescent wrench or something that won't mar too bad, and give it a slight aim upwards.

Test.

Adjust as necessary.

I've installed a lot of these with a seat valve shut-off and recently installed one with a 1/4 turn ball valve type shut off. It delivers water in a hurry.
