Bidets in your building?Apr 29, 2021

There's been talk of allowing bidets in our co-op. Does anyone have them in their buildings? Can you provide feedback based on your experiences?

Do you need a plumber AND an electrician to install them? I think you do, but I'm not sure.

Do you allow them to any s/h or do you limit them to people who have a medical reason (and can supply documentation) for wanting one?

Do you treat them as a renovation and have the shareholder sign a document agreeing to be responsible for any and all repairs that may result from problems in the future?

If you have them, have you had problems with them or have they worked with few hassles?

Thanks in advance for any feedback you can provide.

Bidets OK - Grant May 06, 2021

should not be a problem. bidet is very close to being a toilet. Both need a waste pipe and cold water supply, but a bidet additionally needs a hot water supply.
So if you have the floor space in your bathroom, feel free to proceed!
Hope you know how to lay out a floor plan or call a pro.
