How to install the GoBidet Attachment Transcript
If you’ve ever wanted a quality bidet attachment, with a lifetime warranty, you’ll want to check out our favorite bidet attachment, the GoBidet. Today we’re going to walk through installing this from start to finish.
My name is Daniel Johnson, I’m your bidet expert and I’m the owner of manybidets.com, where over the past 8 years, we’ve sold over 10,000 bidets.
The first step, whenever installing a bidet attachment is to take your existing toilet seat off. Pretty straightforward to do this, just loosen the nuts on the bottom side of these bolts and once those nuts are off, the seat will come off. The attachment is going to sit between your existing toilet seat and the rim of the toilet itself.
This is how the GoBidet attachment comes in the box. We have the arm that attaches the GoBidet to the toilet, we have a nut, a plastic washer and a rubber washer. The rubber washer will stay on that little bolt, but the nut and the plastic washer will come off. We’re going to leave it right like that. You can also unscrew this all together if you want and move it over to this hole. If you want to have some opportunity for different placement of the GoBidet control panel, we’ll look at that as we get further into the installation. When it comes to water connections, by default the GoBidet works with cold water. You can see the “C” here, this is the cold water inlet. Here’s your “H”, for hot water inlet. By default, the hot water inlet is capped off. We can take a flat head screwdriver, to uncap it. If you get a hot water adapter kit with your GoBidet, install the nub that comes with that hot water adapter kit, so that you now have a hot water inlet as well. The hot water inlet would connect to the sink water line, or some other location where you can get hot water and of course the hot water kit is going to come with an additional hose and T-connector, to run that line. Today we are going to be installing the cold water only, but as you can see, getting the hot water set up is pretty straightforward, assuming that you get the hot water kit. Now we’re going to place the arm into the hole that connects the toilet seat to the toilet. We want to make sure that this rubber washer is protecting the porcelain, so that’s going to be between the two. Now we’re going to put the plastic washer on the bottom side here, followed by the nut, so let’s do that now. That’s somewhat snug, we could get a wrench and tighten that down even further. This hole here, where the nub could also have connected, would allow us to connect the nub here and run it over to this hole if we needed positioning to be a little bit different. You’ll also notice that these arms go over the rim of the toilet bowl, which allows the nozzle to hide inside the toilet bowl, under the rim and allows me to move this nozzle for front wash, or rear wash and even adjust it a little bit here, as needed, to get that positioning perfect.
Now we need to connect the GoBidet to the water supply. Right now, there’s pressurized water in the line. We want to avoid disconnecting anything while that’s the case, or we’re going to have water everywhere. We’re going to turn the water supply off, this is a quarter turn off valve. Then we’re going to flush the toilet and hold down on the flush, until we don’t hear water flowing anymore, so that we know as much water is out of the line as possible. Despite the fact that we’ve gotten so much water out of the line, we still want something to absorb any water that does fall out when we disconnect the water supply. We are disconnecting the water supply at the tank, not at the water inlet. The T-connector will only connect on the bottom side of the tank, the water inlet will not work for this T-connector. You’ll receive a white box with your bidet. In that box, you’re going to have the T-connector, that allows you to connect the bidet to the water, a spacer and some plumbers tape just in case you need it. The spacer will be placed here and the T-connector, we want to first of all make sure that that rubber gasket is showing there, will connect to the bottom side of the water inlet on the toilet tank. That is tight on there. Now we need to connect the water inlet, to the bottom side of that T, again making sure that the rubber gasket is there. Last but not least, we need to connect the water supply that leads from the offshoot of the T-connector to the GoBidet. We’ll tighten these down a little bit with a wrench and there we have it. Now, we just need to figure out exactly what position we want the arm and the nozzle in and once we’ve done that, we can tighten this nut on the bottom side of our arm in that position. We’re now going to place the toilet seat over the toilet holes. We have our plastic spacer right here, so these are both now the same height. We’re going to go ahead and put the toilet seat there, grab the bolts that came with the toilet seat, put those into place, grab the nuts and washers that came with the toilet seat (all this we took off just moments ago). For this one, I’m actually going to use a flat tip, on the top here. Get that a little bit tighter.
Now, we’re ready to check it for leaks. There’s a few different places that we want to keep an eye on. The three connections on the T, as well as the connection where the hose connects to the GoBidet. If we mess with the connection down here, by the water supply, we’ll want to keep an eye on that as well. I’m going to turn it on slowly. We actually have a leak there, see a little bit of water coming out there. Let’s go ahead and turn that off and let’s mess with that leak. Now, to check for the leak, we’re going to go ahead and drain this tank again. Get any water out that we can. We could see that water was leaking out between the water inlet for the tank and this top piece of the connector. Let’s go ahead and just undo that. When we have a leak like this, we want to make sure that we’re checking for the rubber washer. The rubber washer is missing here, but it’s actually because it’s pressed up into the inlet here. What I’m going to do in this scenario, is use a little bit of plumber’s tape. This plumber’s tape does come with the GoBidet, so you don’t have to worry about going out and buying plumbers tape just for a little install. Now, we’re going to re-tighten this down. Absorb some of that water that’s spilled out and just for the sake of completeness, let’s go ahead and give this a little bit of an extra tightening. All right, let’s check again. Again, turn it on slowly here. That’s so much better, so no more leaking from right here, no leaking from any of the other seams. We’re good to go on that front.
Now it’s time for the fun part, testing the product. Let’s go ahead and make sure that the GoBidet works. Forward on this knob is off, backwards is on. You can see here, we’re adjusting the position of the nozzle under the rim, out under the rim out, so you can kind of get it right where you want it. Then you use this, to adjust the pressure. Right now, if I push back on this we see no water comes out. Why is that? Well, I’m over on the hot side of the equation and I only have the cold water supply connected. We’re going to go ahead and move this over to the cold. As we do that, we’re going to see water start to come out. We’ve confirmed that it works. If you’re actually using it, you can use this knob at the same time to adjust the position and make sure to get the best coverage possible. Now, the beautiful thing about the GoBidet is, it does have a lot of pressure, because it’s using the pressure from your home, so I can just keep turning this up if I want. We can see that there’s lots of pressure there to work with. If you’re looking for a high quality product, you don’t need all the bells and whistles, but you do want really good pressure, this is a good unit, this is definitely going to do the trick. Now that we’ve tested and made sure that it works, we’ve got everything hooked up, all we’ve got left to do is enjoy it.
