Greetings fellow radio lovers.

Pbpix,

I was in Japan a few years ago and saw that most of the toilets have a similar water squirt setup, but I've never used one. They also had the holes in the floor at Narita airport restrooms, which, to tell you the truth, it smells horrible.

Dumb question, how do you dry your derriere after the water squirting? don't you still need some sort of towel or paper anyway? or just wait to air dry?

I agree that toilet paper is not exactly very good either.

I, for one, haven't used TP in over 12 years.
I have a bidet attachment ( $35) that fits under the back of the toilet seat that squirts water and fully cleans the area.

BTW:
Talking about unusual differences in certain countries... In Singapore chewing gum is outlawed.

And although the religion is mostly Buddhism, Islam and Hindu or Christian; prostitution is sort-of okay and licensed or regulated.

It's a little damp... if you need to you can use TP to dry.
.. but honestly it easily self dries.. it's clean water anyway.

Buy one for your toilet! Believe me.,. you'll love it and never look back. So sanitary.

While we are on the subject. I would think that you would need really strong leg muscles to use a toilet without a seat.

Women here in the US do it all the time in public toilets. They don't want to sit on a possibly wet nasty seat... so they just hover .... and add to the mess on the seat.

The BioBidet BB2000 seats we have are equipped with a warm air dryer. They work very well, and are the model I recommend: http://www.biobidet.com/Bliss-Bidet.htm

I think you already know the answer to that Bill... :)

It involves the words... paddle, creek and up
but, not necessarily in that order. Lol

There's not a single photo on that website with the lid up, showing the seat. Seems like the seat is the most important part (I don't know karate).

And I'm still not sold on the idea of having a remote for my toilet seat. One more thing to clutter up the house. I need a remote control for a toilet seat about as much as I need... I don't know... I can't think of anything equally useless to compare to a remote for a toilet seat.

I'm not saying the idea of a bidet is bad... I just can't see needing to keep track of a remote for it.

One place I worked at the maintenance people used to complain about footprints on the seats from women standing and squating on the seat.

This bunch can talk about ANYTHING! This is great idea! Been thinking about this as a great french idea from decades ago and wondered WHY NOT IN USA? Now this forum links to Home Depot for 35 bucks!

Wait, are we talking about flatulence now?

No way am I springing for a bidet unless it has a built in warm air dryer option.

Curious, what happens when there is a power loss?

Worse, ones home has electric well pump. Its back to the bucket full of sand. Tell me it has a battery backup, no good without the water. I suppose a home generator needs to run so one can "go". :roll:

Yep, loose power often, but never, ever lost muni water...

I wonder what become of Alan Douglas's "One holer" he restored...?

YMMV
