The process for installing your Bidet Seat is very easy and will take anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour, depending on your ability to use tools as an example: for someone who is good with tools it should take about 20 minutes compared to someone who has never done something like this before your time will be closer to an hour. It's a DIY (do it yourself) job and the installation kit comes with all the easy to fit plumbing parts you need to install a unit, all you need to provide is the toilet, electrical outlet and maybe a small adjustable wrench.
Below the instructions, is a video on how to install the Bio Bidet BB-1000 and will apply to most of the bidet seat on the market. The only big difference will be what kind of T-connector they come with. Some bidets come with a ⅞" T-connector that installs under the toilet tank and some come with a 1/2" T-connector that installs on the wall valve that supplies your toilet.
Now let's get started with the step by step instructions.
- Turn off the valve that supplies water to your toilet and then flush the toilet until the tank is empty.
- Discount the water line from the wall valve to the bottom of the toilet tank. Please note, if there is still water leaking out of the wall valve, make sure it is tight enough and if that does not work, you will need to replace the wall valve (it is very rare that this happens). If you are in a hurry, you can turn off the main water valve to your home, but will still need to replace the wall valve later on.
- Time to install the T-connector, if it's 1/2" connect it to your wall valve, but if it's ⅞" connect it to the underside of your toilet. Be sure not over tighten the connector. If you have the ⅞", you may need to hold the inside of the toilet tank water inlet line, because sometimes it moves and you will need to hold it still while you tighten the connector.
- Now connect the supplied water hose on the wall valve to the underside of the toilet tank or ⅞" T-connector, then connect the supplied water line to the T-connector.
- Now remove the old toilet seat and clean around the toilet bowl, so your new bidet has a nice clean resting place.
- Take the supplied mounting brackets and install them in the same holes that were holding your toilet seat and tighten. At this point don't worry about straightening them, we'll fix that later.
- Take the bidet seat out of the box and slide it onto the mounting plate. When you have it fully engaged on to the mounting plate, you should hear a click, letting you know you did the job correctly. Now loosen the bolts on the mounting plate and move your bidet until you are happy with it resting place, then-retighten.
- Now connect the water line to your bidet toilet seat, but don't over tighten.
- Turn on the water and check all connections to make sure the are not leaking.
- If you have a model that has a remote, install the batteries first before proceeding.
- Make sure that the water heater is in the off position.
- Almost there! Now plug your bidet into the wall outlet. You will hear a bunch of sounds and this is normal.
- While holding your hand over the marked area of the seat sensor that is on the right side as you face the unit, you will now need to press the rear cleaning button on the remote. Note: you will need to keep your hand over the seat sensor while doing this, because if you remove your hand, the unit will stop spraying water. Depending on the unit you have, it could take up to 30 seconds before the water starts coming out of the nozzle and once it does you can remove your hand the the water will stop. Note: make sure you have your have you hand over the nozzle so it does not spray you in the face.
- All you need to do is set the water and seat temperature and you're good to go.
