I moved to Canada
12 years ago. I'd lived in the USA before so I knew that a bidet was not a common household item. In Argentina
, where I'm from, a bidet is considered a must for any home bathroom. There's even a product called "bidet nŠutico" (nautical bidet), which is basically a bracket, some pipe, and a handle that you attach to the toilet seat. It also has a hook-up for a regular faucet hose from the toilet water supply.
When you're done you move the arm (which is conveniently tucked away to the side, inside the toilet) and open the faucet. Wash before you wipe, my mom used to say.
I have two of those at home, which have been moving with me every time I moved. Installation
is trivial. I have been wondering whether I would install one on the boat when we go cruising. I probably will install it but not use it until I know what our water consumption
is and how easy it is to fill the water tanks
. Or maybe not; I'm sure this is going to be buried deep down in the to-do list.
Unfortunately I did a quick Google
search and can't find a link to the product. But if you go to Argentina
you'll probably be able to get it at many neighborhood hardware
