How to install a bidet shower head to my toilet?

Hey Guys,

 

I need to install bidet shower, but I dont have enough space to install the Three Way Tee.

The Diverter Tee is 1/2" size, and I cannot rotate it to install since the wall blocks it. 

Is there something like an elbow which would give me more space to install this.

Hello @kingj 

 

Welcome to Bunnings Workshop. Thank you for sharing your query with the community. Since there is not enough space to join the cistern tap to your bidet tap I suggest to remove the cistern tap and connect the bidet tap direct to the wall outlet. You will need a Kinetic 15mm Chrome Plated Brass Hex Socket and screw that to the brass wall outlet and then screw the bidet tap to the socket. Please make sure to use thread tape so that the connections are secure and that you don't get a leak. Thank you for sharing your diy journey.

Please note : Please make sure to follow all local and council laws and regulations regarding the connection of bidet sprayers in your area. As every area is different you may have to inquire at your local council. This is for your safety and the safety of others.

Thanks, but I am unable to remove the cistern tap.

How would I do that, it looks to firm to be moved or rotated.

Hello @kingj 

 

You will have to turn the water off to the main house and use an adjustable wrench to remove the cistern tap. I have placed a picture below. Good luck and stay safe.

Thanks @redracer01 

 

Have tried this, but didnt work. Due to lack of space around ( there is cabinet next to it) I cant open the tap. 

Is there no other option to extend it out.

Hi @kingj,

 

It's great to see you're already receiving helpful assistance from the knowledgeable @redracer01. Does the bidet sprayer have its own trigger? If so, removing the current mini tap and replacing it with a Kinetic 15 x 15mm Matte Black Brass Double Mini Tap would be the easiest option. Is the issue using the adjustable wrench that you can't attach it at all onto the fitting? You should still be able to use it in a fairly confined area. Sometimes though, it's just not possible. 

 

Any fitting I can think of that would extend it out has to be at a right angle. Due to this, it will hit the wall in the same way you are already experiencing. Although it wouldn't be my first choice, and if you didn't need to operate the three-way tee often, then you could attach a Kinetic 225mm Flexible Water Connector to the mini tap on the wall. You could then attach your three-way tee onto the end of the flex hose. It wouldn't be the best solution but could potentially get you out of trouble.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Mitchell
