The San Bidet Go! Challenge

What is the San Bidet Go! Challenge?

The San Bidet Go! Challenge is a non-profit campaign to encourage every property owner in San Diego to install a bidet or bidet attachment in their restrooms. Bidet attachments are a relatively unknown eco-friendly toilet technology that brings the benefits of stand-alone bidets to standard toilets. These attachments are incredibly affordable, making them very accessible to the average American. To learn more visit our bidet service page.

Drain Help originally started its San Bidet Go! campaign because we saw an opportunity to help our customers prevent toilet clogs by reducing their paper footprint within their plumbing and drains. We call San Diego our home. So we believe that we can make a considerable impact on the city’s environment, health, and budget by promoting the use of bidet attachments.

What is a Bidet Attachment?

Bidet attachments come in all shapes and sizes to fit just about any non-commercial toilet out there. Attachments come in two types. The first type is designed to fit under your toilet seat. The second type is integrated into a toilet seat that will replace your current seat. Both types use the water supply hose going to and from your toilet to operate. They can be installed in about 15 minutes without any proper plumbing training. Most bidet attachments are made of durable plastic and metal connections. There are non-electric designs and electrical designs. Bidet attachments can come with a range of functionality.

Some simply clean your rear. Others will cleanse both your behind and front. Pricier units will offer heated water and air drying functionality. Your bidet may even sing you a song, depending on the unit. The majority of models will come with convenient self-cleaning designs with enclosures to protect the nozzles. Contrary to popular belief, the bidet nozzles do not project out toward you. They pop out downward when activated, spraying up at an angle to clean.

Many Americans are unaware of bidet attachments and how affordable they can be. The average price for bidet attachments is $50. Units can go up to the thousands, but most don’t break $100. They can be bought on Amazon or Ebay, but you will be hard pressed to find one in a store near you.

Bidets Save Money!

A family of four can spend hundreds of dollars a year on toilet paper. A typical single family home water bill can add up anywhere from $30 to $100 in San Diego. Toilet flushing takes up a modest amount of that bill, but over the course of a year, a family of four could save upwards of $50 dollars from not having to flush as much. Actual savings depend on bathroom behaviors and could be quite a bit more or less.

Then there’s the issue of toilet clogs. A snaking job by a licensed plumber can start as low as $70 dollars but can go up to $200 or more if you want a camera inspection. Bidets can easily prevent toilet clogs caused by toilet paper and flushable wipes. Most plumbing companies do not advertise bidet installations because it can cost them customers. We realize this reality, but we are willing to bear the cost to help the San Diego community on a greater level.

How to Use a Bidet Attachment

Using a bidet attachment can be as simple as turning a knob. A single nozzle bidet without any extra features will have just one knob or control to adjust spray pressure. A dual nozzle design will have controls that adjust the spray for rear and front cleansing. If your attachment does not have a defined self-cleaning control, then the lowest possible setting will likely act as the self-cleaning function.

After spraying, a few sheets of toilet paper are all that is needed to dry off. If your bidet is not completely cleaning you, then you will likely need to adjust the water pressure higher and modify your positioning on the toilet. Leaving the spray on for longer may also help. Bidets are child-friendly, but it is recommended that parents properly educate their children on bidet operation before letting them use one. The positioning of the bidet attachment may also need to be changed to accommodate children as well.

The Ecological Impact of Toilet Paper

Toilet paper wipes the earth clean of many valuable resources each year. The environmental impact left behind by toilet paper costs the earth almost 10 million trees a year. 88,000,000 lbs of greenhouse gases are generated to make the 34,000,000 rolls of toilet paper that Americans use every year. 225,000,000 gallons of fresh water are used every year to manufacture toilet paper products. Bidet attachments can reduce the amount of paper used for going to the bathroom by up to 90%, saving natural resources in the process.

Historically, San Diego has been in a perpetual state of drought. Water costs are constantly rising. The city is avidly searching for cheap and sustainable sources of fresh water to prevent rationing in the future. We need to look at every angle. As a local plumbing company, we see a great opportunity to save the county water by preventing flushing with bidet attachments. Low flow toilets seem great on paper but they often need to be flushed more to get the job done.

Each spray takes only a few ounces of water at the most for any kind of attachment. Rarely does it take more than one flush to use the restroom with a bidet. It is this preventative nature of bidets that is key to saving San Diego water.

Changing San Diego Culture

San Bidet Go! isn’t just about natural resource conservation. It’s also about education. Drain Help will always strive to educate its customers and San Diego about beneficial plumbing technology. This mission is also why we decided to start this initiative. Most Americans are unfamiliar with bidets and bidet attachments. We hope that our campaign will raise awareness of bidet technology and educate San Diegans about their many benefits and uses.

Sometimes people need to see to believe.

Sponsoring commercial restrooms with bidet installations throughout San Diego County is how we plan on raising awareness and helping people believe in the technology. At the turn of the 20th Century, most Americans would not even speak the words “toilet paper” aloud out of embarrassment. The Scott Brothers, founders of the Scott Paper Company, popularized toilet paper on the roll, but were said to have been ashamed to be in the business because of the cultural stigma.

However, they were able to overcome the taboo by pushing forward and making their products highly visible to the public. Our mission with San Bidet Go! is to normalize bidets within San Diegan culture just like toilet paper once had been. If the city can adopt the technology successfully, it will serve as a fantastic example to the rest of America that water can be more hygienic, ecologically sound, and cost efficient than paper.
