Electronic Toilet Seat FAQ

Electronic Toilet Seat

The electronic toilet seat: it’s a miracle of the technological age. Unlike the cold, slam-y, featureless toilet seats of yesteryear, an electronic toilet seat promises to elevate your bathroom experience and make your commode the IT place to be. If you’ve got questions about these techy wonders, though, you’re not alone.

Luckily, we’ve got answers.


  1. Is an Electronic Toilet Seat Just for Women?

Guys guys guys! While some people believe bidets are only for women, this isn’t true. And luckily so, because they’re awesome enough that nobody should miss out on the experience. In fact, standard bidets aren’t often recommended for women, since the angle of the spray can contribute to bacterial infections.

On most modern electronic toilet seats, though, the bidet feature offers both an anterior and a posterior wash, which enables every member of the family (not just the female ones!) to adjust the spray and customize the experience.

Perhaps men even find it easier to admit that their undercarriage is, er, dirty.  Maybe this is why 60% of BidetGenius customers are men!


  1. Are Electronic Toilet Seats Worth the Money?

Yes! This will change your life. But let's slow down...

Depending on which model you’re interested in purchasing, you can expect to pay a few hundred to more than a thousand dollars for a good electronic toilet seat. This begs the question, of course, of whether or not these toilet seats are truly worth the money.

To answer that question, it’s important to look at a few other things, as well. First, there’s the cost of toilet paper. The toilet paper industry is worth more than $30 billion annually, and the average U.S. citizen uses about 57 sheets of paper daily.

Not only will investing in an electronic toilet seat cut down on your toilet paper use (the environment will thank you for this), but it’ll also decrease the amount of water you waste flushing the toilet multiple times and will provide some important health benefits that could save you a trip to the doctor’s office. As if all that weren’t enough, electronic toilet seats are also inexpensive to operate and will not cause a major spike in your electric bills.

That said, the cost cutting and environmental benefits aren't the core point here. A bidet toielt seat will upgrade your life and your health. You'll actualy wonder why it took you so long adnd amaze yourself at how long you walked around with smeared bacteria on your body. Seriously.

They're also more fun and make for great party conversation. So, that;s worth the weight in gold.


  1. Will You Have to Change Your Plumbing?


Most modern electronic toilet seats work with your existing plumbing and your existing toilet. Simply take the old seat off, throw it away, and swap the new one out. Hook it up to the existing cold water plumbing and plug it into a GFI electrical outlet. Electronic toilet seats are an easy way to retrofit your existing bathroom and take your old toilet from good to great.


  1. Are Electronic Toilet Seats Hard to Clean?

One of the great things about the modern bidet seat is that they’ve got a host of self-cleaning features built-in. While people who have never used a bidet before imagine that they’ll have to get down and dirty with the spray nozzle, the opposite is often true. In fact, most bidet toilet seats don’t ever require you to touch the nozzle.

Before and after use, most bidet nozzles move through a self-cleaning mechanism that sterilizes the spraying surface and gets rid of bacteria. Some even offer a pre-spray feature, which wets the toilet bowl before you use it to help it stay clean and reduce flushes. Outside of that, you clean an electronic toilet seat the exact same way you’d clean any standard toilet seat.


  1. Are Bidet Seats Safe?

With all their fancy features and built-in bells and whistles, it can be easy to ask if bidet seats are safe. Luckily, the answer is a resounding “yes.” Bidet seats have plenty of built-in safety features, including thermal fuses and high temperature switches. These fixtures are UL approved and a very reasonable addition to your household.
