Ask Poopreport: Vertical Or Horizontal Bidet Spray?
We are doing a bathroom remodel and are lucky enough to have space for a standalone bidet. I'm mystified, though, as to whether to choose a vertical or horizontal spray. It is a sensitive topic and it's not like we can try one out in the plumbing showroom. And given that we live in the U.S., there are probably no working bidets within a hundred miles that we could discreetly demo.
My main concern is how to clean the target area without having water sprayed from that area up into my girlie bits. I understand that one can sit on the bidet either facing toward or away from the controls. Perhaps a horizontal spray would be best, thus allowing me to face the spray in such a way that the water stream would hit the target area from front to back?
For those who might suggest a Toto Washlet: We have given it careful thought, and have even seen one in action, but have decided that a traditional bidet would offer more flexibility for cleaning both the male and female target areas.
I'm hoping the friendly and sophisticated international PoopReport community can come to the rescue with advice.
