How to Install A Bidet Toilet Seat
Depending on your preference, you can choose a bidet seat that you consider suitable for your home.
Fortunately, you can apply the instructions contained in this article to almost every type of bidet.
You may need to drive in some bolts while installing your bidet, so you need a screwdriver.
Since you may require any screwdriver, it is safe to pick up a combination of heads.
The fittings on your new bidet seat may require an adjustable wrench to tighten, considering that not all seats come with fittings that you can tighten by hand
Bucket & Paper Towels
When you disconnect your toilet’s water connection, a tiny amount of water may drip. To clean up, you will need some paper towels and a small bucket.
How To Install a Bidet
1. The first thing to do when you want to install a bidet toilet seat is to get rid of the former. Check the former bidet to be sure of what is holding it in place, then remove the bolts accordingly.
Usually, a screwdriver is best for unraveling the bolts at the top while you remove the nuts beneath simultaneously. Not all toilets have bolted seats; however, there are nuts beneath the rims to separate the heart.
After removing the bolts and nuts, you only need to remove the seat. After removing the former bidet seat, thoroughly wipe the top to get it set for the new toilet seat.
2. After removing the old toilet seat, the next thing you want to do is to disconnect your water supply. To do this, locate the valve, which is usually behind the closet.
When you find the valve, twist it clockwise to stop the water flow.
3. Next, install the T-valve to the supply pipe. Alongside your new bidet seat, a T-valve is included to divert water to the bidet sprayer.
Most parts of this step consist of plastic, so you only need to tighten them using your hand. However, you will need your wrench to tighten metal fittings properly.
Disconnect the hose supplying water from the toilet tank. Prepare your bucket and paper towels in case of a leak.
Attach the T-shaped valve to the toilet tank, replacing the supply hose.
Attach the hose to the T-valve at the bottom.
4. It is at this point that you attach the bidet toilet seat to the toilet. Your new bidet seat is supposed to come with a mounting plate. Place the mounting plate behind the rim, make sure it aligns with the last bolt holes.
Put the bolts into the spaces and tighten them underneath with their rims. Depending on the type of bidet you bought, the bolts and nuts can be either plastic or metal. For metal bolts, use your screwdriver or wrench.
Fit the bidet into place.
5. Now that you have mounted your new bidet toilet seat, it is not functional until you reconnect the water supply. Since your bidet has its water connection, join one of its ends to the last space in the valve.
Fix the available hose to space beside the bidet seat. Cross-check all the links to make sure they are firm and tight. You can then open the valve you shut earlier.
To open the valve:
1. Twist it anti-clockwise to fill up the tank and allow water into your bidet.
2. Check the bidet seat to be sure there are no leakages.
3. If your bidet seat is electronic, plug it into the appropriate outlet to avoid shock.
