I’ve always wanted to try a bidet. I have heard good things about them from other people with IBD. I’m glad that I was given the opportunity to review the Luxe Bidet Neo 185.
The Neo 185 was fairly simple to install. I did have some problems hooking up the T joint to my tank because of how stiff the hose that went from my wall to the toilet tank. Once I got that installed things went very smoothly. I do need to get some plumbers tape to put on it. It did leak a little. I think that because of how stiff one of the pipes is, it’s causing too much tension on the T joint and causing it to leak. I meant to get some plumbers tape this past weekend but I forgot.
When I first used the bidet it was a little shocking to have cold water spraying on my butt! I do wish that there was a temperature control or something on this but I’ve gotten somewhat used to the cold water. It’s definitely helped some with the butt burn when I’m having a bad day IBD wise. I’m definitely going to be glad I have this the next time I’m in a flare.
The bidet does not get you perfectly clean. I still have to wipe some, but not as much as I used to. The water from the bidet definitely helps! One thing to keep in mind is to not turn the dial to full blast the first time you use it! Try a lower setting to see where the water pressure is for it and adjust from there.
This bidet also has a self-cleaning feature which is pretty nifty! There is also a setting for the ladies. I haven’t really used it. I’m more interested in a bidet for my behind. But for the women who are looking for a bidet that also takes care of the lady bits, this is a great option for you.
