The short answer? For your HEALTH and WELLBEING.
Imagine instead of a shower or bath you started each day by grabbing a tissue and wiping your face and underarms, would you feel clean?
The bidets we supply cleanse your private parts with a stream of pure filtered warm water and then dries you with a gentle temperature controlled air flow every time you use it. Leaving you feeling fresh and clean. No amount of toilet paper can clean you as well as the washing and drying functions performed by an electronic bidet.
That is a popular misconception. The bidet is highly recommended by health specialists for use by both men and women. Our bidet has 2 cleansing nozzles.
One being for cleansing of the bottom and the other for the exclusive cleansing of the vaginal area. For women who want more effective feminine hygiene during monthly menstrual cycles, the bidet is the best way to accomplish this task.
The bidet can be installed directly to the existing plumbing of your toilet. All the parts required are included, and the instructions are easy to follow.
Australian plumbing law states that all products installed into a water system must be installed by a licensed plumber. This includes washing machines and water filters.
As no toilet paper products are required and the water is purified by the in built filter, the installation of our bidet system is probably the best thing for your septic system.
Not much. About 2 glasses of water (500ml) per average wash. You use 4 times this amount (2 litres ) when you wash your hands.
Did you know that a 10 minute shower can use as much as 120 litres? So the amount of water you would use with our bidets over a whole year could be less than having 2 ten minute showers.
A lot of water is used in the manufacturing processes required to produce the toilet paper and a lot of chemicals and dioxins are used in this process. If you don’t use toilet paper, apart from saving money every week, you will also be doing your part in reducing the pollution discharged into streams and rivers, generated by the manufacture of toilet paper.
The bidet supplied by thebidetshop.com.au is an invaluable aid to personal hygiene. The bidet is gaining popularity among senior citizens, the disabled, and those with impaired motor functions and those who may have issues with the control of their bodily functions. It has restored a sense of dignity and independence for thousands of Australians (see testimonials in this site).
We strongly recommend that if you are operating the bidet for another person please use the bidet yourself first to make sure that the temperatures are set to a comfortable level for your patient, preferably at the lowest setting. More importantly these devices can and should be used by healthy people of every age and gender who want to remain healthy and feel truly clean.
The functions of the bidet can only be activated when a person sits on the toilet seat. When the person stands up all functions on the bidet will stop.
When cleanliness is an issue, both men and women who want better hygiene before or after sexual activities can utilize our bidet for the cleansing and pulsating massage functions.
thebidetshop.com.au prides itself on only supplying its customers with state of the art products that have been tested to conform to Australian standards.
The bidets supplied by The Bidet Shop are the most advanced bidets on the market today. They feature an instantaneous heating system that heats the water instantly while you use it. They have no internal tank that requires heating as all other bidets have. We all know what problems may occur with water sitting warm in a container over a few days. So the water supplied by our bidets is as fresh and clean as possible.
Our bidets also feature two separate cleansing nozzles one for the bottom and one for the ladies so any cross contamination that may occur with a single nozzle bidet can’t occur with a bidet from The Bidet Shop. Many of the bidets that we have considered for introduction into the Australian market – (units that may have passed the European, American and Asian safety standards) – fall short of meeting the strict Australian standards requirements and are therefore rejected by The Bidet Shop.
Our range of bidets are probably the most affordable bidets on the market today when compared to bidets of equal standard and quality. Over a 2 year period the money an average family with 3 children will save on toilet paper alone, will offset a major portion of the price of a bidet.

Bidets are often referred to as washlets, bidettes and Japanese toilet seats. Although bidet is the accepted word for these sorts of toilets. It is established that the first references to the bidet as it appears now trace back to late 17th century France. It is thought that these bidets were first made by French furniture makers. The first electronic bidet was made in the 1960’s, however, non-electronic bidets are extremely common in many European, Asian, and Middle-Eastern countries and because of this, bidets are commonly a standard fixture in all buildings.
The bidet’s popularity in the western world is rapidly catching on, this is due to the fact that bidets are far superior than using the western method of toilet paper; especially in the hygiene department. The reason why the bidet has not been completely embraced however, is mainly due to the bidet being seen as intimidating and strange for first time users. While the bidet may be strange at first use, once you use it you will not know why you didn’t buy one sooner.
At The Bidet Shop Australia we commonly have customers that want a bidet after returning from overseas and having experienced first hand the benefits and comfort that a bidet provides as opposed to toilet-paper toilets. It is because of these features and benefits that they can’t stand to use traditional toilet paper toilets any longer.
Many well travelled people, many celebrities and people from all walks of life regardless of age or gender have abandoned the archaic method of wiping and have fully embraced the bidet, often buying one for every toilet in their house.
