After being initially somewhat skeptical as to the real benefits of a bidet, I am now a most enthusiastic and positive advocate for the Toto Eco Washer Bidet seat. My only regret is that I didn't get one years ago!
I have tried a hand-held bidet, and whilst it, too, is much better than paper, the "Toto" is far superior in every way. The refreshing stream of water is well directed and varied according to need with a slight repositioning of the body and tweak of the tap. I am using less than half the amount of toilet paper and feel "shower fresh" constantly.
My husband easily installed the seat following the detailed instructions and after some initial hesitation has also become an enthusiastic user.

Coming from an Asian country where the usage of bidets is very common (almost all households have them in their toilets) I found it a bit troublesome doing the toilet business when I first moved to Australia.
All of the properties that I'd been living on didn't have a bidet in the toilet, so I always kept in mind that when I bought my own house - the toilet will have to have a bidet. Now that we have bought our own house, we were very pleased to find Lusan Bidets selling a range of various bidets.
Our parents were especially happy when they learnt that our new house's toilet will have a bidet on it! We plan to renovate our second toilet in the near future and will definitely be buying another bidet from Lusan Bidets.
Thanks very much.

Thanks for the USABidet. I've had it fitted up for a week now and it is working a treat. The unit was easy to fit and although I am a mechanic by trade, I see no reason why anyone else couldn't fit this as easily as I did. Also, thank you for promptly replying to my emails.
I started looking at bidets because after taking a course of antibiotics; this upset the balance of my digestive system and good bacteria in the intestinal system, which in turn caused a rash on my bottom area. This made the area around the 'back door' sensitive to wipe, and poop further irritated the rash area so I needed a way to clean without using harsh toilet paper. I had been using a hand-held shower unit but the little sprays just weren't doing enough. Then I saw your unit that has a nice sized nozzle for 'good water flow'.
In use, I find the unit delivers a great quantity of water that cleans the entire area (and then some) and also up inside just a little. This helps eliminate having a little poop seep out later - which would start irritation of the sensitive area again.

The unit works very well - it has been in daily use for over 6 months now. Thanks also for your additional helpful information via email. The 'Hang Chrome' kit (H-03CRPL) was easy to install, very well thought out and carefully prepared, with comprehensive instructions. And it arrived promptly in the mail.
My only difficulty, as you anticipated in the instructions, was that I did need to perform the 'optional' step of swapping the existing float valve across to the other side of the cistern. Even though you hadn't seen the insides of my toilet, your instructions still told me exactly step by step what to do. Rarely do instructions line up with the real world like this! Well done.
I chose LuSan because you seem to be the only people who know all about it - you have the most comprehensive product line and web site - complete with the full story on pressure limiting and backflow. Excellent reading indeed. Your 'competitors' in Australia, such as they are, talk about an ~$89~ unit but warn that you have to buy a 'tap' to go with it (presumably a backflow controller or pressure limiter), but their websites provide no onward links or information about exactly what 'tap', or how to buy etc. Very frustrating.
Thanks again. We'll certainly be buying another in the near future.

This is an absolute necessity!
I remember that purchasing this bidet was the first upgrade we made to our newly acquired house. Being Asians, we're not used to using toilet paper. It was very hard to adapt to using such a method of cleaning as using toilet paper. I had to act fast- and looked for a bidet as the most obvious solution to our problem.
Tried all local hardware here in Toowoomba, but it seemed they could not get me the right bidet I wanted. Googled on the net for any bidet here in Australia and luckily, found Lusan Bidets. They are easy to deal with, and after a couple of days the product arrived at my doorstep. It is easy to install - you don't need a plumber to do it.
Every visitor is surprised at what contraptions we have on our toilet seat.
If your toilet does not have any drain system this is the best unit to install. It is not messy and you will not have any problem with water on the floor of your toilet. No more use of toilet papers for us! And when our visitors ask where I got it, I always reply: "you can get it from LUSAN BIDETS - you can easily find them by a search on the Internet".

We grew to like using the hand held bidet when bicycle touring around Thailand last summer. We loved how fresh it made us feel and how simple it was to use.
Back in Australia we looked around for a place to purchase one but the only quality ones we could find were from LuSan Bidets. I really appreciated the installation procedure guide.
We used it during all of winter in Newcastle and now need another one because there is a competition to get to the toilet with the bidet installed. Not only that but it works a treat with no maintenance required.

I bought a Hoy Bidet Kit white (pressure Limiting) two days ago, and initially had reservations as to the difficulty of the installation of the kit into my toilet cistern - so I only purchased one kit to test it out. But it was easy to install, and my reservations were unfounded. The kit was delivered within 3 working days even though I am living in NSW!
Now I am sooo happy with it as I really could not get used to to not having a bidet in my toilet - since I immigrated from a country where the majority of houses have hand held spray bidets installed in all their toilets.
No more dry wipes! No more urinary-tract infections! Guys, you need to move out from the ancient ways - get cleaned the right way. Even my teenagers prefer the bidet and we are all rushing to use the toilet with the newly installed bidet.
The hand held wash gun is easy to use and does not leak even with the main water tap left turned on which is most important. Design wise, the white economical plastic is not as sophisticated and sleek as the all stainless steel model but it serves its purpose. The water pressure coming out from the spray gun is not too high and makes washing easy and comfortable. I am used to the cold water as it beats dry cleaning anytime. Its worth the cleanliness.
I am planning to buy the all stainless steel model for my other toilets which I believe is the best money can buy.
I would recommend readers buy the pressure limiting models as they are more durable - saves money in the long run.

I installed my TOTO bidet in August 2010.
Like most Australians I was initially skeptical but now I know better! It works brilliantly, is reliable and unobtrusive to the point that I would not be without it. I have also installed a Rezi 3.3kW instantaneous electric water heater to add even further luxury.
Les has given me excellent service and advice making me a very satisfied TOTO bidet customer.

How nice it is to have my "nether region" feel really clean.
Water does such a better job than toilet paper -- and without the inevitable skin irritation and cost. I had used a hand-held bidet on a recent holiday in Indonesia and noticed an immediate improvement in anal iritation -- and so on my return, investigated the best way to get one in Australia. Local plumbers looked at me dumbfounded, having not heard of such a thing before.
That is when I resorted to the internet and discovered LuSan Bidets. I am now very happy with my Hoy Hand-held Bidet kit as it was very easy to install; I got a handyman to do the job, and he had it all done in just a few minutes.
I was also very pleased to be able to phone Les at LuSan before purchase to check on the best type of hand-held bidet and attachment for my wall. He was most helpful and advised on the best for my situation, not necessarily the most expensive. I was also impressed that once the order was placed, my parcel arrived very promptly, was very well packed with a checklist of all the parts included.

Recieved my hand held Bidet Spray kit and thanks to the easy installation guide - I had it installed and working within minutes. I am very happy with the service and quality of the product. Highly recommend to others to install one on their own toilet. Thanks LUSAN

I installed the underseat USABidet I got from you on 3rd January 2011. I have been using it for 3 weeks now, and am very happy with the product. To be honest; if I hadn't used the one that was installed at my Mum's place, I would never have known how well they work, and as a result wouldn't have felt the need to change the way I did my toilet business. As they say; "you don't miss what you've never experienced".
Although Mum also has a hand-held model, I personally have only used the underseat Bidet because of its convenience. It just swivels back into place with a spring, then all that's needed to do is use 2 or 3 squares of paper to dry your bottom. When I used the one at Mum's - I wiped with paper first, then finished off with washing. But now I just wash very gently at first, then use a bit more pressure before drying with paper.
I save on toilet paper, plus I don't have to buy the expensive, very soft brands that claim to prevent irritation, because I'm not using the paper to clean anymore, just to dry. I did have to turn the pressure back with the small tap (that shuts off/regulates the flow), like a bit of trial and error, but once it's set to be enough to clean (but not to hurt) you don't need to touch it again.
All I can say to anyone who thinks they will buy one is - you won't be disappointed. With regards to the installation, if you read the instructions carefully, and you are even half a handyman (or woman) you should be okay.

We got two Hoy stainless hand-held kits (pressure limiting). When the product arrived, it did not look like a cheap one - very nice looking. The pressure limiting valve controls the water pressure so we are able to leave the tap open. Although it seems like you can do this yourself, we used a plumber as we were also replacing the whole toilet suite.
It is easy to use, just point the wash gun to the area you want to wash. In our daughter's case; after she does a poop on her nappy, we just get her to sit on the toilet and use the hand held at an angle (about 45 degrees) to wash off her bottom. It also helps to wash her vagina if she gets poop there. She just has to sit a little further back - otherwise the water can splash and bounce off the front of the toilet seat. We don't use it though to clean the nappy.
My brother's family stayed with us for a few days and they reside in Melbourne. They liked the hand held bidet as they were able to wash their 4.5 year old son's bottom without the mess of using a pale of water.Â They did comment that in Melbourne the water would be cold, and then I showed them that you can attach a small water heating device being sold from the same site.
In one of our toilets the wash gun is attached to the left side wall, and with the other toilet - to the right side.Â It is advisable to get the pressure limiting kit as it limits the water pressure and in my opinion prolongs the life of the hose/wash gun - especially if you plan to leave the tap on. A friend of ours got a similar product from another vendor, but without a pressure limiting valve (the company does not sell this kit), and their hose burst in less than a year. The tap included in this kit can also be used to limit the water flow and works well with the pressure limiting valve. So if you want less water, you can close the water tap about half way. Â
Because we live in Bisbane; after we ordered we got the item the next day.Â
It is a great product and we are happy we got 2 put in.

Initially my wife had doubts about buying another Electronic Bidet Seat since the last one (a well known brand with a lot of functions) failed after only a couple of years - despite several trips in and out of the workshop.
Since installing the Aisin Electronic Bidet we have been very pleased with its simplicity and efficiency which is marvellous. It also takes a lot less time to use than the previous bidet seat.
The installation instructions supplied were easy to follow (for any normal householder) and there is no need for a plumber.
We have visited Japan several times recently and have just returned from our third visit. In Japan, bidets can be found in transit areas, shopping malls, highway rest areas and all the average-price hotels.
We can thoroughly recommend this product - and LuSan Bidets for their service and quick delivery. We can be contacted (see LuSan Bidets for our contact details) should you need any further information about the company or the product.
we are very pleased with the bidet because it is so easy to use and efficient, you do not need all the bells and whistles and there's a lot less to go wrong - as was not the case with our previous electronic bidet.
For cleanliness, this is the only way to go.

I had some reservations about the water temp before purchasing the kit, and was also a little concerned about being all wet once I'd finished washing. My partner at the time was giving me grief also, saying I was wasting my time - but I went ahead and placed an order anyway.
It arrived nice and fast and the installation was super easy. After my first test run I was sold. The feeling is amazingly clean, just like you have just stepped from the shower. When using cold water the temperature is not shocking, more like refreshing. There is no residual mess, even after using a little finger agitation, and washing your hands as per normal afterwards is all that's required. As far as being wet afterwards, I started drying off with a little paper but found it unnecessary because your body heat dries it out very quickly.
Now I wish there were bidets everywhere. Going back to paper when I'm away from home just feels so barbaric. It makes no sense to try and wipe yourself clean with dry paper, who the hell came up with that idea? If you had poo on some other part of your body, it would be water that you want to wash it of with, not a dry paper!
Anyway, I'm absolutely sold on the hand held bidet system and my skeptical partner was also converted. Spread the word and make everyone's world a cleaner place.

This started off as an excellent product, it looks much better compared to other bidet sprays out there and is designed for our unique Australian pressure system which is the reason I purchased this. Many of my friends bought cheapies from overseas but had a lot of trouble with the products not looking so great after a few months and leaking.
However one year down the track, ours has started leaking, something I didn't expect. Hopefully the problem can be sorted as this really is a fantastic product otherwise. The design of the product blends in really well with our brand new toilet so I hope to continue to use it, but get some replacement sprays. It's great the product comes with a warranty as well.

If you are thinking of writing a review; please don't be intimidated by the previous archive for the USABidet. 'PoopReport.com' do have several regular contributors with considerable literary talent!
Anyway, here's my '2 cents worth' on the bidets we are currently using:
We had previously been reluctant to stock electronic models - mainly because all the ones we trialed or saw had things we were not happy with, and the ones we did like - were just way too expensive.
The workmanship and quality of the 'New Cheers' bidet seat is first class, and its shape, size and aesthetic appeal (we think) are just about perfect. The one thing we were most concerned about was the enema ability of the single, general purpose nozzle. Initial trials revealed that the spray was in fact, a little too soft for our liking.
Further investigation revealed a pressure/flow restricting device fitted behind the strainer (in the rear of the seat). Enlarging the restricting orifice here by just 0.5mm (0.8mm - 1.3mm) made a significant difference to the water flow. Our mains water pressure is around 500kPa (72psi), and at full flow the jets could now be classed as perhaps a little too strong for sensitive bums. Not any real problem though, as water flow is able to be reduced very easily (and accurately) with the operating lever during use. This minor (but important) modification is now done standard to all these bidet seats before sale in Australia.
Restricting the incoming water pressure now to 350kPa (with a pressure limiting valve), still showed a respectable water flow that could deliver reasonable enema effect. This is important for folks who have lower water pressure, or who wish to use this bidet seat in conjunction with a hand-held model.
We have really grown to love the warm seat on these cold winter mornings. The seat shape itself has been thoughtfully designed to not only be very comfortable, but also to assist in elimination by helping to spread your butt cheeks with its gentle inward slope. The slightly elongated design also means there is plenty of room at the front (or back) for wielding our second weapon of choice: the 'Hoy' all stainless Hand-held bidet - used with a Rezi water heater of course.
This combination really does deliver the ultimate in comfort and versatility. Besides being my wife's favourite; the hand held bidet is really handy for hosing down the toilet pan after a particularly effective enema cleaning session. It would also be very hard now to go back to just cold water in the winter - that is - when you don't have to!
Now if all this seems just a little extravagant;
The cost of all three kits will set you back around $990. But that's only about what you will pay for just one (fairly basic) electronic bidet from most other reputable suppliers.
As 007 (James Bond) once said - so succinctly: "You only live twice" Whether you believe that or not; why not be comfortable NOW!

The Most Bidet For The Buck.
If you have never used a bidet, you may wonder what all the fuss is about. I first became curious about bidets after seeing an ad for the Biffy on late night TV. Being a mild hemorrhoid sufferer, I thought it might be something I should look into. Up until that time, I thought a bidet had to be a completely separate fixture, like those found in large bathrooms in fancy hotels. I had no idea some clever person had designed an attachment that fits onto an existing fixture and takes up no additional space in the bathroom. The Biffy commercial made a lot of sense to me -- imagine trying to clean up messy poop with dry paper! Water is simply a much more effective cleansing agent.
It seemed like a perfectly logical equation to me: PS < WC. Paper Smearing is less effective than Water Cleanup.
After researching many devices (who knew there exists such a plethora of available butt washers?), I discovered a host of products with a dizzying array of features. All of them attach in some way to an existing toilet -- either as a replacement seat, a seat attachment, or even a bowl attachment. After hours of investigation, I was overwhelmed by choices; and although I knew I would be getting one of these cool gadgets, my dilemma was: how do I narrow them down and pick the right device?
Well, one of the first things to consider when making any purchase is cost versus value. All of the replacement-type seats I looked at were way cool, but those came with the highest price tags. Requirements for connection to water and electricity lines meant many of them would need professional installation. The super-deluxe models, such as the Panasonic Intimist can be quite pricey. The deluxe wash/dry model, with heated soft-close seat, warm water spray, and blow dryer, can run well upwards of $600. I went ahead and checked those off my list. I wanted one, but not THAT bad.
The other extremely cool options were toilet add-ons. Although these have much less whiz-bang, so to speak, they are every bit as serviceable and usually much simpler to install. Some fold out of sight, while others are permanently positioned. The fold-away model made the most sense to me. They come in cold water only and warm water models.
The GoBidet is a fold-away model that uses a hot and cold water mix. Similar in design to the Biffy that had first attracted my attention, this guy is all metal and looks to be very sturdy. At first I thought for sure I wanted a warm water unit, but as I read the different testimonials and reviews, I discovered that people did not mind the cool water in the cold only models. Some likened it to a cool cloth on your forehead when you feel sick -- even though the cloth is cold, somehow it feels great. The perineum does not have many hot/cold sensors (luckily for those who like a lot of spicy food), and if you're a hemorrhoid sufferer, the cool water actually soothes the irritated piles and makes them shrink on the spot. I decided to go the cheapest route and get a cold water model only.
There was only one decision left: what kind of water flow did I want? The Biffy and the cold water GoBidet have showerhead-style nozzles. The other choice was the USABidet. I liked its precision and concentration, and it appeared to be very sturdy and well made. At $149.95, it was a bit more money than the others (which sold for more like $100), but I decided this looked like the best value. The Biffy is almost 100% plastic, and the GoBidet doesn't have the concentrated spray I was after. Another thing I noticed was that the USABidet mounts entirely on the seat, allowing it to tuck out of the way better than the bowl-mounted GoBidet, so the whole bowl can be cleaned without obstruction.
After all this research, I made my decision and placed my order. The next few days seemed like a blur, but soon the UPS man was at the door delivering my new toy. I read the instructions and began to install this chrome-plated beauty. Sure enough, it was very sturdy, almost bulletproof. The valve worked like a charm, and the installation was not too difficult. The water connection was a breeze.
The first bit of trouble I had was that the return spring was depicted backward on the instructions, and the bidet would not retract as drawn. It was simple to figure out the problem, however, and soon I had a beautiful installation. The only other problem I encountered was that this device is rather stout, and thus the toilet seat had to be elevated slightly to facilitate the clearance needed. The company supplies rubber feet for this purpose, but I wish they had supplied four instead of just two -- that would have made the seat clearance issue simpler. Nonetheless, with only a few household tools and about an hour of work, I was ready for my test drive.
The first time I used it, I rotated the handle too far and sprayed water all over the bathroom. This was just a learning issue, though, and by the second use, I was aiming like a pro. I still remember that the first time I turned it on -- I clenched with all my might and got ready for a cold shot. Much to my amazement, however, the cool water actually felt great! The cleansing was awesome and the water pressure fully adjustable from a gentle rinse to a mighty stream that would easily reach the ceiling if no one were seated above it.
After water cleaning, wiping is entirely unnecessary. The only thing needed is a couple of squares to pat dry. Even those squares come out clean from fecal matter. For my preferences, this product far exceeded my expectation in both quality and serviceability.
Things I have learned since my bidet purchase: yeah, I may be biased, but I think everyone should have a bidet, particularly those who suffer from 'roids, eat mucho spicy food, or have physical limitations that make traditional wiping difficult.
Another issue I discovered: the direct stream from the bidet can be used as a makeshift enema. This blew my mind. If you've ever experienced a stool so dry and hard it almost rips your o-ring coming out or even gets stuck halfway, you would give a hundred dollars for one good burst from this bidet. When I get on the throne in the morning, I give myself a good shot before I defecate, thus lubing the pipes. Then even the largest, driest, most difficult logjam slips easily out. After a normal movement, even when I think I'm clean, I relax the sphincter and give myself a squirt right up the middle and into the lower part of the colon. One would scarcely believe the stuff that's left in one's colon after defecation. Usually several more substantial chunks of fudge come out -- chunks which would otherwise have been there festering until the next movement.
Although I heartily recommend a bidet in every bathroom, there are a couple of downsides. My particular model, the USABidet, has a few small drawbacks, but these are minor considering the wonderful health benefits. First, this unit tends to "air hammer," a phenomenon which occurs when air is trapped inside the part of the pipe opposite the nozzle. It causes a chatter that sounds like a jackhammer on the pipe. This could be bad for the Shameful Shitters in our midst, but it can be controlled by careful use of the valve. I haven't tried the one-handed model, but I don't think this would be a problem for that design.
The second issue I have is that the arcing motion tends to shoot mostly towards the middle of the arc, so the back-and-forth motion of the spray is extremely limited. Although this is easily overcome by gently rocking yourself back and forth, a little more aiming ability would have been nice.
The third and most troubling problem applies to all these products: you become almost addicted to your home throne. Once you start using a bidet, frankly, you don't want to go without it. Right now I am planning an extended overseas vacation, and I'm booking hotels based on bidet availability. I may even have to get a portable one and break it in if I can't find suitable lodgings.
I truly believe this is one of the healthiest things one can do for the body -- and I'm no yoga-preachin' all-soy-eatin' nut! As a bonus, my wife tells me that my underwear is almost totally void of any kind of skidmarks -- a phenomenon, I'm sad to say, was not always the case before I got my bidet.
RATING CHART FOR USABidet
Price: B- At $149.95, it seems just a little high, but it IS built like a tank!
Quality and Durability: A- I have used mine for nearly four years without so much as a hint of failure.
Ease of installation: A- A few glitches with the instructions, a little trouble getting the seat adjusted high enough, but overall very easy.
Functionality: B- Fantastic water pressure where needed, but soft and gentle as well. Not much aiming capability. Seems like the Biffy and the Go Bidet may be better here.
Overall: A- Do your sore, bleeding bunghole a favor and just get one of these. It will thank you for years to come!
