After my travels and stays across the Globe I have realized that a Toilet Spray followed by Toilet paper is more hygenic than only one of them.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bidet_shower

Are there any toilet sprays or pipes that are flexible and maneuverable like those kink free collapsing Garden hoses?

If not, how could one find such pipe/ hose and then DIY them to attach them in a bathroom?

Especially, if the place is rented - what would be easy ways to do this?

  • Why not use a shower hose? They have the same internal structure as those kink free collapsing garden hoses except that they have either a plastic or metal cover rather than the fabric that the collapsing garden hoses have. – Dan D. Sep 26 '15 at 7:50
  • @DanD. - I'd like a 'softer' collapsible type of pipe/ hose over a metallic shower hose as it would have similar manuverability issues as thick PVC – Alex S Sep 26 '15 at 10:10
  • I'm sure you could tee off of the toilet supply, and use adapters to size up to a garden hose fitting. – Tester101 Sep 26 '15 at 11:59
  • @Tester101 - What do you mean by "tee off"? I dont intend to take a garden hose and chop it if avoidable. I just gave that as an example to illustrate a more softer pipe/ hose material. – Alex S Sep 27 '15 at 13:21
  • By "tee off", I mean that you could install a tee after the shutoff valve. One part of the tee could supply the toilet as usual, while the other leg could supply a flexible garden hose. – Tester101 Sep 27 '15 at 13:32

There are bidet toilets that spray (2 positions) heated water, and blow you dry. It has a heated seat, too boot.

I've installed the Toto brand version (Washlet) (a seat replacement). It has water and electrical hookups included. The spray wand self cleans and self stores.

I can recommend its function and efficacy.

  • Nice - But looks expensive and a bit out of scope for an apartment. If it was my own place, I'd consider it. Again, a great alternative but not something I can use/ apply now. – Alex S Sep 27 '15 at 13:29
  • Have you considered a "portable bidet"? They make some attachments that simply thread on to a water bottle. – BrownRedHawk Oct 26 '15 at 16:34
  • @Alex S Since its a self contained seat replacement, I'd think it would be eminently usable in an apartment. – HerrBag Nov 28 '15 at 0:11
