Bidet Taps Buyers Guide
What is a bidet tap?
In order to discuss bidet taps, you have to begin with the bidet first.
A bidet is a short, relatively narrow pan that’s placed to the side of a toilet in a bathroom. You’ve probably noticed them in public restrooms when travelling abroad, as they tend to be more popular in continental European countries especially.
With a bowl and tap, it’s used to clean yourself after using the toilet. Many people find it more comfortable and efficient than using toilet paper, not to mention a means of saving money on the latter. Others prefer to use it as an extra.
It’s also widely believed that a bidet is more hygienic than using toilet paper. This is because whereas the latter can technically spread bacteria around, the former douses it with water and washes it away.
Bidets are also more convenient for people with certain physical conditions that limit their range of movement, as well as others with medical conditions affecting their genital area. Some people with developmental disabilities such as autism also find them easier to use.
Now you know what a bidet is, you can appreciate what a bidet tap is used for.
Factors to consider when buying a bidet tap
Price, reliability, colour, brand, ease of fitting - these are all common considerations you would have to make when buying any new bathroom appliance. Yet with bidet taps, there are some more specific things to bear in mind.
Various traditional and contemporary designs are available on the market, meaning that you need to decide from the off what type of overall look you want to go for with your bathroom as a whole.
Some come with dual levers, whereas others opt for a single one. Certain taps offer pop-up waste functions - as opposed to more conventional free flowing drainage systems - while others provide features including an anti-splash mechanism.
And finally, you’ll find that some bidet taps only need the lightest amount of pressure applied, whereas others require a far more forceful approach.
All of these considerations need to be taken into account when purchasing your first bidet tap. To help you, let’s have a look at some general types that are available to buy, as well as how major manufacturers weigh up against one another in this respect.
General types of bidet tap
Single lever bidet taps
Featuring a single lever which can be turned one way or the other to adjust the temperature, single lever bidet taps offer a more streamlined, space-efficient appearance. Sometimes employing a sleek, block design, they often appear quite art deco and help your bathroom exhibit a more modern feel.
Dual lever bidet taps
Dual level bidet taps tend to offer a little more control than their single lever counterparts. Many people also feel that they provide a more traditional, “complete” look, one that would fit into an older, well-maintained bathroom, for instance. This is helped by the fact that they often come in vintage styles, emanating designs from a century or more ago in a way that can add a touch of class to your room.
Pop-up waste bidet taps
A pop-up waste feature often involves having a lever at the back of the tap which, when pressed or pulled, allows you to drain the water away. The alternative in this case would be a free-flowing drainage system, which is the standard for most bidets. Pop-up waste options are convenient for allowing you to fill your basin with water, thereby giving it an extra clean. But ultimately, it’s a matter of taste and whatever works best for you.
What the manufacturers can offer
To help you decide what bidet tap is the right one for you, here’s a rundown of some of the best manufacturers UK Bathrooms works with, as well as what their products can offer you.
For each one, we’ve had a look at the type of style image they prefer to follow; the ergonomic uses of their products; and the approach they’ve taken to levers, waste disposal and other common bidet tap considerations.
Burlington Taditional Bidet Taps
Let’s take a look at Burlington’s Anglesey range to start off with. This series of models tends to come with either a quarter down valve or screw down valve, although some have been conveniently designed so that if the water pressure is above six bar, you can fit a pressure reducing valve instead. Their convenience in this sense combines with their traditional, chrome look - one that could fit into a hotel room as comfortably as an ordinary house bathroom, such as with the Regent Monobloc Bidet Mixer - to provide a range that matches style with practicality well.
A mention should also be made for Burlington’s Chelsea range. Models such as the Regent Curved Spout Monobloc Bidet Mixer appear very sophisticated with their pillar design and minimalist single lever approach.
Dornbracht Bidet Mixer Taps
Dornbracht tend to opt for block-based designs, which gives their products an appearance of sturdiness and reliability. Aside from their simplistic, yet striking appearance, they are also built with ease of use in mind.
Take the Dornbracht IMO Single Lever Bidet Mixer with Pop-up Waste model, for example. An adjustable nozzle, with 30 degrees of control built into it, allows the user to easily maintain control over the flow of water and the rate of temperature. The same control can be exercised with the Dornbracht Lulu Single Lever Bidet Mixer Tap with Pop-Up Waste model also, whose single valve design makes such factors simple to adjust.
Grohe Contemporary Bidet Mixers
Grohe bidet mixer taps are made with resilience in mind. For instance, the Grohe Eurosmart Bidet Mixer has a finish that is particularly effective at resisting scratches over time. Like Dronbracht’s range, Grohe also builds its models with ease of use in mind, especially in terms of adjustable flow rate limiters and non-swivel mousseurs.
The brand also likes to compete in the more luxurious side of the market and names its products to match. Take the Grohe Allure Brilliant Bidet Mixer, for instance, a bravely yet fairly named product that wouldn’t look out of place in a fancy spa.
Hansgrohe German Engineered Bidet Mixers
Hansgrohe has an interesting approach to providing ease of control. Although many others in this list also prioritise this factor, the brand stands out from the rest with its preference for a”joystick” design, such as with the Hansgrohe Talis Classic Bidet Mixer With Waste model.
The brand’s models are also a key example of why you should make sure you know what type of basin you have before choosing your tap. The Hansgrohe PuraVida Bidet Mixer With Waste model, for instance, is designed to be compatible with those that have an overflow system installed.
Keuco Bidet Mixer Taps
As with many other brand models, Keuco’s products tend to come with a pop-up waste lever included, yet not necessarily mentioned in the title. The Keuco Moll Single Lever Bidet Mixer model is a good example here - note the lack of “pop-up” in the name.
The same model is also typical of the brand’s approach to comfort, especially in terms of a gentle, relaxing flow of water, as achieved in this case through a flow rate that has been reduced to six litres per minute.
Ideal Standard Bidet Taps
Ideal Standard’s products live up to their brand’s name in more ways than one. But one particular factor that stands out is their focus on safety - something that’s especially worth considering when you remember what part of the body we’re talking about here!
Designs like the Ideal Standard Cone Single Lever One Tap Hole Bidet Mixer achieve this by installing a cartridge that prevents the water from getting too hot at any one time.
Imperial Bathrooms Traditional British Bidet Mixers
As the name suggests, Imperial Bathrooms tends to pursue old-fashioned, grand designs for its products, emulating eras such as the Edwardian and Victorian periods. The Imperial Victorian Monobloc Bidet Mixer model is a key example here.
The brand also likes to mix things up a bit, occasionally producing designs that differ not only from the period it’s trying to emulate, but everything else on the market too. The Imperial Cou Bidet Mixer Tap with Pop-up Waste model, for instance, has both hot and cold knobs sticking out at diagonal angles, with four spikes on each handle.
Pegler Bidet Mixers
In a similar fashion to Keuco, Pegler prioritise the comfort of their models. The Pegler Bidet Monobloc with pop-up waste model, for instance, produces a steady, balanced stream of water at all times.
Some of their models also draw comparisons with Dornbracht’s preference for block-based designs. Take the Pegler Marina Monobloc Bidet Mixer, for example: its straight-facing, wide yet shallow lever provides a sturdy appearance alongside the rectangular pillar and curved tap.
Like many brands that pursue a single lever design predominantly, Roper Rhodes has a range of products that are minimalist in their design and convenient in their ergonomics.
The Roper Rhodes Storm Bidet Mixer with Click Waste model achieves both, matching a sleek appearance with the ability to fine tune the water flow rate and temperature with ease.
