Is Australia ready for the Bidet?
Australians are really dedicated to being clean and showering more than most countries. Toilet paper is used by Australians to clean and by the truck loads. Contrary to popular belief toilet paper has a tendency to irritate the skin, if you rub too hard. Toilet paper though is not a sanitary way to clean, it leaves residue in the anal area, this can lead on to cause problems.
A good way to compare it is, you wouldn’t wash your dishes with a tissue and then reuse the dish? You also wouldn’t take a shower by wiping your arm pits and genital area with a toilet roll and throw on a new pair of clothes? If this is true then why do Australians continue to wash themselves with toilet paper and not water. What better way to be washed than with water, natures bathing solution.
The market for bidets in Australia is still in its infancy but has grown tremendously in the last few years. A lot of Australians in fact are already using a bidet and they are starting to appear in many luxury hotels and casinos. Once this way of life is adopted by Australians YOU will wonder how you ever lived with a bidet.
Why would you use a bidet, you ask?
Well bidets are the perfect solution for both men and women. The bidet offers a hands free approach and a remarkable washing experience. This is in place of the traditional way of wiping with your hands. Yuck!
It is a helpful way to improve personal hygiene and cleanliness. It is also massively popular among senior citizens, disabled people and hospital patients. Still, bidets should be used by everyone. They offer a far superior wash and a really needed to keep a healthy and active lifestyle.
After you experience the feeling of superior cleanliness, you will never go back to toilet paper. Trust me, I know 🙂 If that doesn’t convince you, then think of all the animals you will be saving by reducing the devastation to the rain forests to make the toilet paper you use.
Coway is the only company that has it own R&D department, designs its own products, builds it own products and sells to the world. All other bidets are manufactured under OEM where certain bidets are re-branded for every different companies brand. More information on what OEM can be found here.
Easy To install
The bidet can be set up within 15 minutes, with no additional tools necessary.
The instructions are clear on how to install the bidet and it should take no time at all to start using your new bidet.
Everything required for a standard installation is in the box.
*Standard installation is considered when you have access to the water behind the toilet and access to the toilet lid bolts from under the toilet. ( the bolts which hold the current toilet lid in place ). If the water supply is inside the tank or there is no access to the seat bolts an adaptor kit or top fixing bolts can be purchased or supplied.
Although the manufacturer has designed this product for easy installation, in other countries most people do it themselves. In Australia, the plumbing code mandates that this product needs to be installed by a plumber and we do advise that you comply.
Same rules apply to other household products like washing machine, fridges with water connection and any water filter or appliance connected to a water tap.
All of our products are fully watermarked to the Australian standard WMTS-051:2016.
In order to be compliant with the AU watermark standards, we have supplied the bidet with the appropriate backflow attachment.
Part of the watermark requirements all our products must be labelled accordingly.
You will find the following information on the packaging and on the product:
THIS DOUCHE SEAT IS SUPPLIED WITH A BACKFLOW PROTECTION DEVICE COMPLYING WITH AS/NZS 3500.1. NO FURTHER BACKFLOW PREVENTION IS REQUIRED FOR CONNECTION TO THE WATER SUPPLY
The AU standard AS3500 classifies the bidet as a high hazard device and requires the installation of a Reduced Pressure Zone Backflow Preventer ( RPZ Valve). Currently, this conflict is being discussed with the ABCB who wrote both of these standards as well as many councils and state water boards.
