How to Install the Bio Bidet’s Discovery DLS Bidet Seat Transcript:
Hi, Daniel Johnson here, your bidet expert and owner of manybidets.com; where over the last eight years, we’ve sold over ten thousand bidets. Today we’re going to talk about how to install the Bio Bidet Discovery DLS Bidet Seat. We’re going to walk through it from start to finish, talk about what you need and make sure that you have a good understanding of how it works.
This is your standard water hookup for a toilet. One of the most common mistakes we see people make, is trying to connect the t-connector that they receive, to the water inlet. The t-connector should be connected on the bottom side of the toilet tank. If you run into a scenario where that doesn’t work for you, because this area is skirted and hidden, you can always purchase an alternate t-connector from us – that will allow you to connect down here as well.
The first step that we’ll want to take is turning off the water supply. We want to make sure that this (these can differ sometimes it’s sometimes it spins a lot sometimes it is just a quarter turn this is just a quarter turn), but you’ll basically want to make sure that this is turned off so that water is not running through this hose. Once the water supply is turned off, you’ll want to drain the water tank; by holding down on the flush lever, or if you have buttons on the top, holding down on those flush buttons to drain out as much water as possible.
Once you’ve done that, you can then unscrew this connection. You’ll want a towel handy, to sop up any water that comes out, because there will be a little bit of water when you do that. Then you’re going to take your t-connector and connect it on the bottom side. Again, keep in mind if you try to connect this t-connector to the water inlet, this thread is way too large for that to be doable. This is designed to work without needing any plumber’s tape, so keep that in mind. If you use a little plumber’s tape, use it very sparingly, technically it is designed to operate without any. Then we connect the water supply to the bottom of that t-connector that we just connected to the tank. One common question we get here is “Now I’m getting dirty gross toilet tank water coming through to my bidet”. Incorrect and the reason is that, you have back pressure on this hose. The back pressure is going to keep the water that’s in the tank, in the tank and the water going to the bidet, to the bidet. The two aren’t going to intermingle. That’s an important thing to keep in mind. Once we’ve got these two connections, connected up and in tight,we can connect this hose…as such. Then as you may have guessed, this side is going to end up connecting to the bidet seat.
Now, we need to install the mounting plate. We have the mounting plate itself, which is a hard plastic. It’s got some rubber pads on the bottom and we have two of these brackets. These brackets allow us to position the mounting plate further forward, or further back as needed. We’ll look at that here in a moment. Also as part of the mounting hardware, this particular unit uses a top mounting kit. It’s a rubber sleeve that a bolt goes into. If you look at the bottom side of these, you can see a little metal ring. Basically what happens, is this allows you to mount on a toilet that doesn’t have access to the bottom side of the bolt holes. What you do is you push these guys into those toilet bolt holes. Snug is good here, let me reach around the side here and pull it through, so that you just have the rubber ring up here at the top. What happens is, as you put a screw in here and you tighten it, the screw pulls up on this metal part on the bottom and when it does that, it presses this ball against the bottom side of the toilet porcelain and thus this ball basically grips the bottom side tightly….
