Luxe Bidet Neo 120 Installation
Best Valentines Gift Ever
Guess what I got for Valentine’s Day from my wife? If you guessed the Luxe Bidet Neo 120, you were right! I’ve always wanted a bidet and my wife knew it. Isn’t she the greatest?
My wife says I should explain what a bidet is in case someone doesn’t know. If you watch all of the gifs below (especially the last 2) I think you’ll be able to figure it out. But just to spell it out, it’s something that attaches to your toilet seat and sprays water on your derrière after you’ve done your business in order to clean you off. A bidet leaves you feeling squeaky clean and saves a ton of toilet paper! Do you want one yet or are you grossed out?
A Quick Installation
The Luxe Bidet Neo 120 was really pretty easy to install. It comes with everything you need, including instructions. There is also a video on the Amazon page that shows the whole process step by step, so I’m not going to go into too much detail other than showing some gifs of how the process went down for us with some brief explanations.
First some prep work of applying plumber’s tape to the threads on this T-connector
And the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 comes with a small roll of plumber’s tape that has just enough to complete the installation, so that was great.
Removing the toilet seat
We love our toilet seat because you can actually remove it for cleaning purposes without unscrewing anything (It’s a Kohler quick release toilet seat). But to complete the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 installation, we did have to undo the screws and put them back on with the bidet in between the toilet base and the seat screws, as shown below.
Placing the bidet, screwing it in, and replacing the toilet seat
Shutting off the water, flushing the toilet to empty the tank, and unscrewing the water supply
After shutting off the water supply, you really want to flush the toilet to empty the tank before unscrewing anything. And it’s always a great idea to have an old towel on the ground to soak up any little drips that might still come out.
Attaching all of the hose connectors
And the last step is turning the water supply back on
It’s also good to check for leaks after you turn the water back on to make sure everything is snug and that enough plumber’s tape has been used.
Trying it out
Check this thing out! That is some serious water pressure! The first time I turned it on it actually sprayed water all the way across the bathroom onto the window on the other side of the room. Luckily, the pressure on the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 is actually adjustable using the dial that you can see me turning below. The other dial is to put it into a self cleaning mode. We’ve had a chance to use this thing a few times since the installation and found that things generally work best with a pretty low pressure setting. It’s pretty cool how the nozzle stays hidden until you turn the dial, then pokes it’s head down and does it’s thing when it’s time for action. Do you want one yet?
