View Full Version : Bidet in van

Recently bought a bidet kit from Italy which is designed to fit a Thetford C200 toilet bowl.
I was very pleased with the 'spray' attachment which is fitted into the bowl and retracts when not in use. In fact if you didn't know it was there, you would have trouble spotting it.
I was not so impressed with the mixer tap that was supplied, because the pipe fittings were only suitable for hose clips, and I had no confidence in them at all. If they had slipped off, unnoticed, the locker would simply have filled up with water, until the tank was empty! So instead, I used a Reich remote mixer tap, which is as strong and reliable as Hymer taps, and far better for coping with hot water for long periods.
As a result, although we are extremely pleased with the addition of a bidet, I'm not going to recommend the Italian kit as I dont feel that enough thought has gone into the basic design to ensure that it was capable of 'fit and forget'. I wasn't prepared to have to keep checking the connections, or having sleepless nights worrying if a hose was going to slip off. R

Why would you not trust a hose clip? They don’t fail on your cooling system so why would they fail on a fancy ar5e cleaner. Why would you want one in your van? On the whole I think crap wrap does the job.

Is it gentler on the botty area than my Karcher pressure washer, which sometimes when I am not careful with my aim, can shoot my balls over my shoulders at a very high velocity.

My best mate was a courier for a travel company in the 1960s. He was in charge of a coach party in Biaritz when the hotel manager summoned him to a room occupied by 2 old ladies.

There in the bidet was a Richard III, poor sod had to explain to the old dears that they had got it all wrong.

I’m sure if he went to Mackey Ds and maxed his drink cup could have a dual purpose as a gonad bath. Mmm but we are all assuming that it’s Rog and his dingles that need the bidet when it may be for Chrissy to wash her CAT. 😂😂😂

All this talk about being posh is basically bullsh*t. I'm just trying to find a way of avoiding too much paper making life difficult at the emptying point.
Now that its fitted, I think its a great addition to have and we are both very pleased with it.
There is a possibility that we MAY use more water and we MAY have to look to empty more often, but only time will tell.
With regard to all these, and more, questions, we will find the answers and get to the bottom of it! R

you can avoid too much bog roll simply by folding the paper each time you wipe your bum,1 piece does a minimum of three wipes,four if you arnt too sweaty,mind you if you use newspaper you can get half a dozen folds if you arnt too rough :wacko:

Devilish cunning these Italian designers. When I used to work with Italians in Milan they would but me up in the most incredibly small hotel rooms with distinctly idiosyncratic plumbing. In one whilst turning on the shower I received a violent jet of water up my nostrils, once I had finished choking I realised the funny depression in the corner of the shower tray was meant to be a compact integrated bidet. I dread to think what impact that would have had on my nether regions if I had actually sat on it!

We used the 03483-01- Bidet Universal for Fiamma Bi-Pot Cassette Toilets For Sale at The Fiamma Centre (http://www.thefiammacentre.co.uk/fiamma-bidet-universal-for-bi-pot-cassette-toilets.html) for our C2 Toilet. They do this version for the 200 series. 03483A01- Fiamma Bidet 200 for Thetford 200 Cassette Toilets For Sale at The Fiamma Centre (http://www.thefiammacentre.co.uk/fiamma-bidet-200-for-thetford-200-cassette-toilets.html).

We used it for 8 years full timing no need for plumbing in. We used the bidet also for number 1s and used a lidded nappy bucket as storage in the shower tray. The bidet contents went in as well. We could made a cassette last us 10 days using this and the liquid only was easily disposed off.
