I have been travelling around Asia and noticed they use a Bidet. What are the benefits of using a bidet and can I get one installed here in the UK?
There are many reasons to use a bidet and we could write a whole novel on the benefits of the bidet system and its history. Listed below are briefly a few unknown and amazing benefits
- it promotes environmental protection – United Kingdom uses up to 4 million tons of toilet paper every year, and to cater to this demand, forests are cut down. Aside from the pulped trees, toilet paper production uses over 200 billion gallons of water on an annual basis.
- It decreases your exposure to toxic chemicals – Manufacturers bleach toilet paper using chlorine and its derivatives, such as chlorine dioxide, leading to the creation of cancer-causing chemicals, like dioxins, trihalomethane, and furans.
- It reduces pollution to the environment – Various estimates state that the amount of toilet paper tossed into United Kingdom dumps and landfills can reach up to 35 to 40 percent of total landfill mass. Moreover, chlorine by-products can transfer to the air, waterways, soil, and eventually, the food chain.
- Health benefits
Bidets Have Health Benefits For people suffering from bowel conditions, such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, constipation, haemorrhoids, and diarrhoea, a bidet can potentially offer some relief. Toilet paper, on the other hand, can irritate your skin and cause more unnecessary problems. There is also a theory that using a bidet may help prevent urinary tract infections due to its ability to cleanse thoroughly.
That said, the bidet is very popular among the elderly as using one allows them to quickly practice good hygiene without excessive assistance. The same is true for people suffering from temporary injuries, permanent handicaps, or people who’ve recently undergone surgery around their genital area.
Women can take advantage of the bidet’s gentle nature during their monthly period or after childbirth.
When it comes to benefits, bidets seem like a no-brainer. Go ahead and give it a try. Why not give heat jet a call to discuss further the health and environmental benefits?
