I installed one of the in-toilet bidets before this badge bit was avaiable. It works well, but I don’t like cleaning around it. This time I thought I’d try a hand-held bidet.

Hello everyone,
Here is my submission for this badge bit. I found a hand held bidet for the task.
Toilet mechanism was also broken and leaky and needed replacing, that was done at the same time.
Have a nice day,
Oliver

this shot was hard to get, there's a sensor that can tell when you're sitting on it.

I finally had the free time to install it. I ran into an issue with the seat bolts, but managed to overcome it.

Purchased this a while back just now getting to install it.
Took a little longer due to having to remove toilet because of small bathroom and replacing wax ring but got it done.

We have babies in the house and fabric diapers. So it's high time for a bidet for cleaning purposes. I was quite pleased at the ease of assembly!
