Bidet Toilet Seats were frowned upon once in the U.S., but its popularity is now accepted worldwide. Bidets are used to wash and clean the body after a bathroom use, without using toilet tissues. The user’s position for washing the frontal genitals, is by facing the nozzle, and for washing the back end of the body, users should sit with their backs to the wall.
Standard bidets have manual adjustable seat settings, front and back sprayer, that users can use to adjust the temperature and pressure of the water, and a soft seat and soft lid. The more expensive bidet models allow users a more direct control of the sprayer nozzles, self-cleaning functions, adjustable warm air dryer, self-flushing system, an hygienic air filter, and a sensing self opening and closing lid.
Bidets are available in a variety of designs, such as: electric model with a sprayer nozzle system, filtering system, and massaging options; basic bidet without electricity where you can choose to adjust the water stream according to a users requirements; modern bidets with remote control features; and travel bidets which are compact models with carrying cases, and soft push button knob.

Some companies do offer a replacement warranty if a bidet arrives defective and in its original packaging, as long as it is done within 30 days from the day of purchase. Bidet toilet seat companies, however, do offer different yearly warranties on all parts, installation labor costs, and is dependant upon the type of bidet purchased.
