How to install the BB-1000 by Bio Bidet Transcript:
If you’re excited to get the BB-1000, by Bio Bidet, but are concerned about how complicated it will be to install, stay tuned, this video will make the process simple. My name is Daniel Johnson, I’m your bidet expert and I’m the owner of manybidets.com, where over the past eight years we’ve sold over 10,000 bidets.
Now, before we install the Bio Bidet BB-1000 you might be asking yourself “Is the BB-1000 the bidet seat for me?”. If that’s a question you’re asking, check out our ultimate buyer’s guide E-book, a link is in the video description. It will give you everything you could possibly want to know about bidets and help you make the perfect choice.
Now, let’s jump into the install. We’re going to start by turning off the water supply. Mine is a quarter turn, but yours might be required to be turned further, just turn it off until it stops twisting. Now that we’ve done that, if we undo this we’re going to have some water coming through, so let’s start by draining the tank. We’re going to hold down on this flush lever until the tank’s as empty as possible. We can hear water stopped running, so we’re going to let up on that lever and now unscrew the line that’s at the bottom of the tank. We have something down here to catch any water that drips, but we shouldn’t have a lot, because we’ve turned off the water and we’ve drained the tank. All right, so we’ve got a little bit of water, we’re letting that drip out.
Now, we need to install the T-connector. We want to make sure that this T-connector, which comes with your purchase from us, has a rubber O-ring in the top of the T, and we’ll just attach it here. You don’t need plumber’s tape for this, in fact we recommend trying it first without plumber’s tape. This just needs to be hand tightened. Make sure that you didn’t lose the rubber ring on the water inlet and attach that as well. It’s also important to note that the BB-1000 comes with an additional water supply hose; Don’t let that confuse you, you can use the existing water supply hose. The hose that comes with the BB-1000 for the water supply, can just be ignored, so don’t let that throw you for a loop. You will need to use the water supply hose that leads from the T to the bidet seat, however, so we’re going to go ahead and install that now. Make sure that the rubber gasket is on that as well and connect it to the T-connector. The hose that you will be utilizing, from the Bio Bidet box, is the white hose. Now that we’ve got it hand tight, we’re going to go ahead and give it a little additional crank with a wrench, but again we want to make sure that we’re not over tightening either.
Unlike a traditional toilet seat, where you mount the entire toilet seat on the toilet in one go, a bidet seat utilizes a mounting plate. We’ll want to install the mounting plate first. The nub that we see here, needs to be facing the rear and the arrows need to be pointing at the toilet tank. If we try installing this mounting plate this direction, we have it on backwards. We want to make sure it’s facing the proper direction. Now, we can mount it to the toilet. To do that, we are going to use these washers. The washers are going to sit in grooves, in the mounting plate. The ridge that we see here does need to be facing up, because that’s going to grip the top of the bolt heads. There’s little grooves on the bottom sides that allow it to grip the mounting plate. Grooves up, and then the bolt goes through those washers. We’ll do the same thing on this side as well. Now that we’ve got the hardware on the top, we need to attach this to the toilet. That will be done using a cone washer, with the thin side facing up and the nut on the bottom, which will press that washer up against the bottom side of the porcelain. These are also just hand-tightened, so don’t over tighten them. Then the same thing over on this side.
Now this mounting plate is in place, we’re ready to slide the seat on. When sliding this seat onto the mounting plate, we want to make sure that it goes into the grooves that show up here in the bottom. You’ll notice that there is a little indention, here. That indentation lines up with this middle ridge on the mounting plate. You can also see that there’s a little hook right here in the middle. That will hook into the mounting plate when we slide it on. Let’s go ahead and line it up and then slide it into place. You’ll hear a click and that’s how you know it’s officially snapped into place. It’s as easy as that. Now, the bidet seat is snapped into place. If I want to release the BB-1000 from the mounting plate, I simply press in on that button that we saw a moment ago and it will slide right off. Let’s go ahead and slide it on again, and we’re good to go.
With the BB-1000 securely mounted to the toilet, it’s time to connect the water supply. Same basic principle, make sure that the rubber washer is there and then connect it to the water inlet. Again, don’t use plumber’s tape on this unless you have to. That rubber washer should be adequate to make sure that there’s no leaking. If you do have to use plumber’s tape, make sure that you use it very sparingly. Once you’ve got it hand tight, you can tighten it slightly more with a wrench, but do attempt not to over tighten it. It’s also important to note, that the seat may not necessarily fit your toilet perfectly, but if it doesn’t, you can loosen up the bolts and slide the seat around a little bit to make it fit better. We’re going to loosen these bolts a little bit, to show you kind of what we’re talking about here. I can now move this seat around. I can make sure that left to right it’s good, front to back it’s good and then when I have it where I want it, I can tighten these bolts down again, in order to secure it into place.
Now, it’s time to plug it into electricity. Now, before we run our first trial run, we want to make sure that we remove the blue packing tape that Bio Bidet puts on, to protect the nozzle. We’ll want to just take this off and that will allow the nozzle now to come out successfully. Now, at this point in time I do need to put batteries in the remote. A fairly common question we get is, “Where is that battery compartment?”; Well, the problem comes from the fact that you may not realize that this is a wall mount attachment, on the back of the remote. If we push down here, we can now see the actual remote itself and we can see the compartment where the batteries go. Let’s go ahead and put that in now. Now, we could mount this wall mount and once the wall mount is mounted on the wall, wherever we see applicable, slide the remote into that wall mount. We’re ready to give it its trial run. Let’s go ahead and turn on the water supply. We want to check for leaks. The T-connector and of course where the water connects to the bidet, those all feel dry. Don’t confuse the coldness of the water running through, with moisture, but do definitely check for leaks. Now, we might be ready to test the seat, but we might start pressing buttons on the remote and not seeing anything happen; That’s because we need to move our hand over the seat occupied sensor, that light will come on, and now if we press a button the wash will actually start. Now, the first time that you run a wash, you might run into this where you don’t see any water coming through; That’s because the BB-1000 uses a tank water heater, so the first time that you install this, that water heater has to fill with water. Once it has, that wash will start to run. So, we’re waiting for that water heater tank to fill. There’s that wash. As soon as that water tank is filled with water, the wash starts. You’ll notice as soon as I take my hand off of the seat occupied sensor, the wash stops, because no one’s now “seated on the unit”. It’s also important to note that this seat sensor sticker can be removed, so feel free to do that. You’re not required to leave that sticker on, it will work just fine with that sticker removed as well.
