There are many types of bidets out there. Most of them are the premium bidets that cost a lot of money, but if one just wants to use the bidet without paying a lot for it, they can just get a non-electronic one. In this article I will give 5 reasons why the non-electronic bidet is sometimes better than the premium electric bidet.
Much Cheaper than Electric Bidets
One of the main reasons one should go for the non-electric bidet is because it is much cheaper. Most electric bidets cost over $500 dollars and include many different features. These features are not necessary for those that are just looking for a quick clean. All of the added features make it very expensive. The non-electric bidet on the other hand can go for as low as 30 dollars. This price difference makes the non-electric bidet a much better choice for those that want to try it out for the first and are not quite sure what to get.
Greener for the Environment
Since the non-electric bidet does not use electric, you can save on the energy used in your house and you can save money since you are not paying for the electricity. You will save on energy which in turn will reduce the carbon footprint of your house.
You Can Save on Toilet Paper
Using the bidet will reduce your toilet paper cost as well as the cost you would have to pay for buying an electric bidet--which can cost well over $500
There is less maintenance
Using an electric bidet requires more maintenance than a non-electric one. For example since its electric you have to find an outlet that you can connect it to. If you don't have one in your bathroom you can't use it. Also since you are dealing with electricity, you have to be careful with water around it. It can be dangerous. The non-electric bidet on the other hand does not require much maintenance, after the initial installation--which requires no electricity-- you are ready to use it and don't have to worry about things going wrong. Since there's no electricity, you don't have to worry about the bidet breaking due an electrical problem.
Save electricity by using pipe ran warm water, rather than an electric powered water heater
One might think if they purchase a non electric bidet, then they won't have hot water, but this is not the case. Most non-electric bidets have an option to connect to both the hot and cold pipes of your sink, which allows the bidet to have warm water coming out of it. The electric bidet heats up the water using electricity and that can waste a lot of energy. Electric bidets with heated water can cost well over 400 dollars. Using the plumbing pipes is much more efficient and also much cheaper.
