There are two main types of bidets – one of them is a mechanical autonomous system built into the toilet lid, and the second is a manual mechanism that does not require any installation.
Before you start using a portable bidet, which is built into your toilet, you need to install it, which is extremely simple:
This type of portable bidet is built under the lid of your toilet and activated by pressing a separate button, or by flushing the toilet barrel (depending on the model you choose)

Turn off the water in the bathroom – now you have to work with the pipes, the water must be blocked.
There is a hole in the body of the bidet to which the hose should be connected – connect the hose to this hole and the pipe through which you supply water (or to the tank of your toilet. We remind you that it all depends on which model of portable bidet you have purchased.)
Check the reliability of the mechanism – all pipes must be securely fixed, in order to avoid leakage or water breakthrough.
There is another connector in the main body of the bidet – for installing a faucet through which water will be directly supplied. Install the faucet in this hole and fix it securely.
Carefully check the hose connections again before testing and using the system.
Done. Now that you have installed the bidet, you can return on the place.

Now consider the second type of portable bidet with manual control:
Unlike the previous type, this version of the bidet does not require any installation and it is much easier to use it. You can take it anywhere – even with you on a trip or a long road.

Externally, such a bidet is a water tank and a not particularly long hose nozzle through which water is supplied.
First you need to thoroughly wash the water tank and the bidet nozzle. But remember! Do not use aggressive chemicals – they can damage the surface of the device
Fill the tank with water. The main thing is that the water temperature should not be higher than forty–five degrees Celsius. Since most often such a tank is made of soft plastic or silicone, hotter water will simply melt it.
Screw the nozzle to the water tank. Ready!
