Benefits of a Bidet
Ottawa’s Best Bathroom Plumbing
Ottawa residents are moving away from Toilet Paper and towards the Bidet. The beginning of the Covid-19 quarantine opened a lot of eyes to the bidet. Consumers had bought all the available toilet paper, and retailers could no longer keep it stocked. Ottawa residents began looking at alternatives, and Bidet Installations have taken off. If you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering if a Bidet is for you?
What is a Bidet
A Bidet is a plumbing fixture installed in bathrooms to clean up your private parts after using the toilet. It’s a shower for your bum. Bidets offer a superior cleaning compared to dry Toilet Paper, and they won’t clog up your drainpipes as “Flushable” wipes can. They are very popular in Europe, Latin America, and many other areas, but Canada has been slow in adopting this hygienic and green technology until recently.
A bidet can come as an attachment to be installed onto your current toilet, or an independent plumbing fixture separate from the toilet. It connects to a water supply line, supplying water to a sprayer. This sprayer will shower your bits after using the toilet, keeping the insides of your pants fresh all day long.

How a Bidet Cleans You
Regardless of the style of the bidet, a bidet works by spraying water on your junk after you’ve finished using the toilet. It showers your private parts, keeping your pants region as fresh and clean as when you got out of the shower.
After you have cleaned yourself sufficiently, you can dry yourself off with either a small amount of toilet paper (a fraction of what you would use otherwise) or a towel you keep for bidet use. Some bidets also come with a Drying function, which uses airflow to dry off your bits.

Interesting Facts About Bidets and Toilet Paper
- The average household goes through more than one toilet paper roll a day, 8 rolls a week, and 32 rolls a month.
- Canada has over one billion acres of the boreal forest. More than one million acres of this forest are affected annually by industrial logging. “It’s disappearing before our eyes at a rate of seven NHL hockey rinks a minute.”
- Canadian forests are being harvested to supply Americans with toilet paper.
- The average retail price for Toilet Paper in Canada was $2.61 per 4 rolls.
- Toilet paper smears feces and rubs it in. While it may remove large amounts of it, it always leaves something – whether or not you can see it on the toilet paper.
- Toilet paper consumption far surpasses the consumption of newsprint.
- Canadians use over 3,700,000 rolls of toilet paper a day. That’s over 24,000 trees used per day to meet our toilet paper needs. This statistic doesn’t consider the greenhouse gases released to harvest and process the trees (which also help to clean greenhouse gases), or the electricity and resources used.
- Toilet paper’s pulp fibers can cause sewer lines to clog, requiring extra resources and labor to maintain our cities sewer systems.
