Bidets are, unfortunately, the punchline of jokes in many movies and television shows. Unless you have one in your home or know someone who does, then you may believe a few common myths about bidet toilets and their benefits.
Below, we’ll clarify some of the most common misconceptions we’ve heard over the years. If you’d like to learn even more about bidets and their benefits, visit the Ecoway catalog to view our best-selling models!
When many people think of bidets, they think about a bidet spraying a high-pressure stream of ice cold water. It’s no surprise that they’re hesitant to try them given that misconception, but bidets are actually extremely comfortable. Many of our models feature heated seats, warm air dryers, and of course, water that’s sprayed gently at a comfortable temperature.
One of the most common questions we’re asked is, “How can a bidet clean properly?”
It’s an understandable question, but rest assured that all of our models have been thoroughly tested in order to make sure that they provide better cleanliness than toilet paper. Think about it — in many cases, toilet paper doesn’t actually provide 100% cleanliness, and it can even cause chaffing in the process. The gentle water from a bidet provides a better solution to both problems!
They’re Too Expensive
Many bidets can be costly, but the ones in the Ecoway catalog are all extremely cost-effective and sold with the needs of the average household in mind. At the end of the day, we believe that making bidet toilets more accessible is more important than inflating the cost just to boost the bottom line!
They Waste Water
Contrary to popular belief, bidets don’t waste water. In fact, they use significantly less water than traditional toilets!
Yes, the water stream and subsequent flushing both consume water, but our toilets have a low-flow design that greatly reduces the amount of water required for each use. Moreover, the process of creating toilet paper wastes hundreds of millions of gallons of water each year. Switching to a bidet and relying less on toilet paper means that you’re creating less demand and, in turn, reducing the amount of water your household consumes indirectly.
They’re Difficult to Use
A bidet toilet might sound a bit complicated when you’re used to simply pressing a lever to flush the toilet. However, the learning curve is minimal, and operating most bidets is as easy as pressing a button or learning to use an intuitive remote control. Check out some of the videos on our YouTube channel to see just how easy they are to install and use!
