    We have just had our bathroom refitted and asked our builder to fit a bidet in but to our amazement, he said that they are a waste of space – it was probably the size of our bathroom and the ergonomics to fit it in why he said so.

    Anyway, after reading your review, I can see how it can help the elderly. I have elderly family members who can benefit from this so I’ll definitely bear this in mind knowing that it isn’t a space waster but it can be of some help for those lacking in mobility.
    I can see another use for it – for washing down babies after a nappy change.

    Thanks for this review! I will no longer look at bidets as a space waster but as a helper for both those lacking in mobility and the young.

    Do you think bidets will replace toilets in the future, due to their environmentally friendliness?

      Hey, Jacqueline,

      Ultimately, I think Bidet Toilets will replace the traditional toilet, not just because of their environmentally friendliness, but also because they are more effective when it comes to cleaning those intimate parts.

      Regarding bidets which could be used for washing down babies, the idea does sound good.  However, there  are specific bidets for toddlers that are used for this purpose.

      The murmurbaby Baby Bath Seat and Bidet for Newborn Baby To Toddler is just one example which can be used for babies. 

      Overall, bidet toilets are here to stay while traditional toilets are eventually on the way out.

      Thanks for stopping by today and see you in the next post.

    What a great way to put a Bidet in a bathroom. I have always wanted a Bidet, ever since traveling around the world and using them in other countries. It is a very pleasant and hygienic way to clean up without using toilet paper. And Kohler has made it affordable by attaching as a toilet seat. Changing an existing toilet to a Bidet or adding a second fixture to a bathroom is very expensive in comparison.
    Your review is well done, I’ll be looking at getting one of these. Is it available in Canada? The shipping charges from the U.S. to Canada are very high.

    Thanks for this wonderful review of the Kohler Bidet Seat.

    I’ve been wanting to get a bidet seat for years. This is particularly useful for women experiencing their monthly cycle by easily and efficiently cleaning the “area.”

    The only concern I have is the temperature of the water. Does it come with an optional heating device?

      Hi, Barb,

      Manual Bidet Toilet seats such as the KOHLER K-5724-0 doesn’t come with a heating device, however, the narrow stream of water coming from the nozzle doesn’t feel extremely cold.

      Still, if this is a major concern for you, I would suggest you look into getting an electrical bidet toilet seat.

      They may be a bit more expensive, however, they will provide the right service for you.

      The Brondell S1000-EW Swash 1000 Advanced Bidet is one of our top choices when it comes to a great electric bidet.

      Warmest regards.

    Hi there!

    You said the Kohler K-5724-0 is manually operated. Does that mean I literally have to pump with the little handle?

    How do others work then, do I have to connect them to power? Who has a power outlet close to the toilet?

    Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it!

      Thank you for your questions, Manny.

      Yes, the Kohler K-5724-0 requires you to manually turn the easy-to-use lever enabling you to wash.

      Yes, there are other bidet toilet seats which you are able to connect to a power outlet.

      Refer to the SmartBidet SB-2000 Electric Bidet Review to learn more – it’s one of the top electric bidets available anywhere.

      If you do not have a power outlet close to the toilet, it is recommended that you get a professional electrician to get one installed.

    Great review didn’t realize a bidet could just be a seat. I think everyone would enjoy this as who wouldn’t want to feel cleaner. I like the information you provided was very helpful and easy to understand. The pictures on this page help explain how the seat works which was nice. You have everything laid out in a way to catch someone’s eye. Very nice review!

    Hello, Jason

    I was happy to come across your review today.

    My father is determined to stay in his house. He grows older and he has trouble in this department. I believe the Kohler Bidet Seat will be a great help for him.

    Remodeling his bathroom to accommodate him is out of the question. The Kohler Bidet looks like the perfect alternative for him. I am going to present your review to the family and see what they think about the Kohler upgrade.

    The price of toilet paper is high, and he does use a little too much, causing the toilet to clog.
    Is paper used at all?

    Thanks for your in-depth review.

    Thanks for your great review of KOHLER K-5724-0 Puretide Elongated Manual Bidet Seat. It is looking elegant and easy to use. The traditional bidet is waste of space but what I like about this one from Kohler is that it is a great solution for space saving.
    I also think it is a great solution for those who don’t prefer to use toilet paper. This seems to be a good replacement for a bidet hand shower (Shataf). 

    Being a Civil Engineer I would recommend this bidet to my customers. A couple of question to you though. Is this available globally? Will this bidet be compatible with other brands of toilets?

      The Kohler K-5724-0 bidet seat is available to ship worldwide.  You can easily go to Amazon and have them ship it to your location.  It is also compatible to use with other brands just as long as it’s an elongated shape.

      Thanks for your comment and questions.

    I have been to various countries in Europe several times and never could figure out how in the world bidets worked because of the design, they looked EXTREMELY uncomfortable and inconvenient. The video on here did a great job of clearing it up. Apparently what I usually see is the bare bones, like a toilet without the toilet seat. Putting one of these on a bidet makes so much more sense.

    Despite what most people in the western world think of a bidet it has been proven to be the most reliable way to clean that part of the anatomy. As your article states different bidets come with a variety of attachments. Whichever the type of attachment you choose they will all work better than toilet paper. The many different designs and variations available with this product should be able fit anybody needs.
    You have a great breakdown of the different toilet seats available for bidets. Do you think they will ever become prevalent in the United States?

      Thanks for a very useful comment, Sequoiaman,

      And yes, I think that bidet toilet seats will get more widespread in the coming years as more and more Americans are making the transition.

    Great article Jason! As funny as it sounds, I love bidets. Beyond personal hygiene, it makes it easier to clean the toilet and other things that can easily be sprayed off like muddy shoes. As an American, it’s uncommon to see people who like bidets. I currently have a handheld bidet that I use to spray dirty things (like cloth diapers) into the toilet. Would you be able to use the manual bidet seat in a similar capacity?
