 How do I remove and replace bidet?
Author: RichRock (FL)

Hello all!

I have to remove and replace a bidet, next to a toilet. The bidet, has separate hot and cold water lines coming out of the floor and through the unit to on/off knobs, on top. Unlike like the toilet, which has one water line with a shut off valve from the wall, which can be turned off to remove toilet.

you will need to shut off the water and install a couple of shutoffs. the drain has a pop-up assembly just like a vanity faucet.
BUT, once removed you will have to take some measurements and get a cut sheet on the new bidet to make sure things will line up.
it is not a simple job for a novice and can be quite difficult if you choose a bidet with a submersed spritzer in the bottom.

What is a cut sheet?

What are my options for a new bidet, other than one with a submersed spritzer in the bottom?

cut sheet is the specification information..
where the hard part of a bidet installation comes is when there is a portion of the water supply that can backflow wash water into your drinking water. that is what those tubes behind yours are for.
if you have a bidet which has a faucet with a spout like a sink, they are easy.
