U.S. News & World Report: Bidets Are Gaining Popularity in the U.S.
February 11, 2016
According to a recent U.S. News & World Report Article, bidets are gaining traction in the U.S. The article reports one of the reasons Americans were slow to adopt bidets earlier, is because the typical European bidet (which sits as a separate fixture next to the toilet), was not intuitive to our lifestyle. Moreover, the European-style bidets required additional space in already-cramped bathrooms, additional plumbing was required, making for a difficult and expensive installation.
But with the advent of the modern electronic bidet seat, it’s now much easier for Americans to put a bidet in their home. Bidet seats attach right onto your existing toilet, so it doesn’t take up any additional real estate. No plumbing is required, since the bidet seat taps into the existing cold water supply behind the toilet (and come equipped with water heaters to achieve a warmed temperature). No drainage is required either, because the water from the bidet just falls into your toilet bowl.
These days, if you want a bidet – all you do is remove your existing toilet seat, and replace it with a bidet seat. Simple.
And with this newfound ease of bidet installation, more and more Americans are discovering a better way to go to the bathroom. Folks are realizing that using water is a far superior method vs. using dry, abrasive paper to clean themselves. But there are benefits beyond hygiene and comfort. There are environmental benefits of using a bidet seat too. Toilet paper use is reduced which saves trees. Toilet paper waste is reduced which saves sewers, septic tanks and landfills. And bidet owners don’t buy as much toilet paper, resulting in a direct savings to their wallet.
Try a new bidet seat in your home for 30 days, risk-free. Once you try it, you’ll understand why bidets are starting to take off in this country. With all these benefits it’s no wonder bidets are getting so popular in the U.S. We just wonder why it took so long?
