Everyone goes to the bathroom and everyone needs to clean up afterwards Â- that's where a bidet-toiletÂ can come in handy.Â
Although the bidet has been a feature for a long time throughout Europe and Asia, it has only become more common in the UK in recent years.Â
There has been an increase of internet searches for bidet-toilets, as people are becoming more aware of the many benefits.
It is more hygienic â€“ using water to clean yourself is far more effective. Think about how you clean your body â€“ using dry paper is nowhere near as effective as a shower or bath.
Cleaning with water is more comfortable â€“ we donâ€™t use dry paper to clean our hands, so why use it for our sensitive body parts?
Finally, it is less wasteful. The manufacturing and distribution of toilet paper requires a lot of trees (15million annually), energy (17billion kW) and water (473 billion gallons).Â
In the UK, we use 1.3m tonnes of toilet paper each year. A bidet eliminates the need for this, meaning you produce less waste, save money and save space.
At Living Needs, we can provide a range of bidets to suit your requirements.
The simplest option is the Bio Bidet, which can replace most conventional toilet seats. It enables users to wash and blow-dry themselves while seated.Â
It comes in the more basic 800 model or the 1000 model (with a separate remote control, heated seat and deodoriser).Â
Prices start from Â£495.50 (ex VAT) and if you suffer from any long-term health condition, you will be exempt from VAT.
We also sell Geberit AquaClean. This award-winning shower-toilet will look modern in any bathroom.Â
With automatic nozzle cleaning and a proximity sensor to switch some functions on as you sit down, it is easy to use and maintain.Â
This is the ideal choice for a more permanent option, and if you want us to install it, our experienced plumbers will offer a minimal contact, safe and professional service from start to finish.Â
