How easy is installation?
If you have a powerpoint and the water socket in the right spot… very easy.
if I dont?
Then it's hard
@kolorijo: If you have access under the house, you can cut the cord , feed it through your toilet base under the house and then rewire on the other side. Took me 10 minutes. Your also need PowerPoint access under the house..
@TommyGun: Can I use Keynote instead?
@ak47wong: Use ‘Slides’ instead, will take you less than 10 minutes access under the house.
My pipes are metal. Does this just screw onto the end between the pipe and the tap? So i may need to replace with a flexible hose?
Yes may need to change to a flexible hose.. These come in various lengths at Bunnings. Just remember to use Teflon tape on threads.
Does it do a good JOB?
I wish I had a power point in my shitter :(
Is there some Australian standards that limit how close the GPO can be to the toilet?
NCC only lists sinks and taps. Shouldn't be much difference to putting a dishwasher plug under the sink.
Pretty sure there is, you don't want letters and parcels to arrive smelling like shit
Don't forget the requirement for a RPZD on the water line.
Have one put it, it will pay itself off in reduced tp costs
You still use TP to dry…
But only like, 4-5 sheets.
@miicah: If 5 sheets is a big saving, how much are you using! (Actually, please don't answer that…)
@callum9999: I hope you use more than 10 sheets to finish the job…
Haven't heard that term since Beavis and Butthead.
You'ved saved $236 by not having a power point in your shitter :)
Just run an extension cord bro.
Cue bad potty humour:
Is this a C&@P product?
English sticker included?
According to the description it does - "Australia Power Plug with English Control Panel Sticker"
Does this come with a t-piece or whatever is needed plumbing wise to split the water between the the seat and the toilet?
Highly doubt it
Yes it does.
The required T-piece is the filter.
It doesn't require t piece. You connect the filter to the wall water connector which has two out, one for seat and one for toilet cistern.
Our toilet water is connected to Rain water tank and not sure if it will be clean enough to use for Bidet. Power point is another issue, else I love the idea.
I think it comes with a filter but you will need to replace these every 6 months
I haven't replaced mine… should I ?
Reading about this in other threads, the filter is only really needed in areas/countries with hard water so you shouldn't need to change it.
I already have a bidet from a random brand with excellent pressure hot water, two "positions", hot air dryer, etc.
But physically it doesn't sit so well.
How is this as far as pressure and temperature?
I think the pressure is a bit low as compared to using a simple manual bidet without the heater function I was using before, that one will force clean your shit off your ass at tap pressure!!
I don't think the pressure is due to the filter also, as I unplug the hose from the seat into a bucket and turn the water on and there's quite a bit of pressure & flow. I think the limiting factor is the size of the pipe inside the seat that limits the flow so it can keep up with the water heating rate. Saying that, I haven't had skidmarks issue on my undies, just need to let the water clean a bit longer.
Also from butt memory compared to other bidet I used in Japan, I think the pressure is a bit lower.
Water temp is consistent, but the first 0.5 sec of water that came out is cold.
I guess you kinda get what you pay for. But happy with it so far for what I pay.
any idea on how many watts it uses? im assuming the heated seat is always on?
If you turn on the heat seating function, then it stays on. That's my only gripe that it's manual.
The higher end xiaomi seats are smarter and can automatically turn on/off but they aren't available here.
but doesnt it take time to heat up? so its kinda pointless if automatic, you dont want to wait 2 mins before you sit down
Those are linked via bluetooth such as when you use the xiaomi band. It detects when you are nearby and will activate your personalised functions and are stored onto the band/app (https://youpin.mi.com/detail?gid=101173).
So each person can have their tailored settings.
In reality, the seats heat up pretty quickly anyway.
@Nanokillaz: lol so you have to have your phone on you.
ah well, thats not really a feature im interested in anyway, as long as it doesnt waste power
@perplex: FYI that's only for the more expensive version.
For this one it's pretty simple, no need for any accessories. Just sit and do you business. I'm not sure how much power it uses, which is why I keep mine turned off unless it's the winter.
Anyone who has one of those smart power adapters such as Xiaomi zigbee or wemo would be able to get an idea.
@Nanokillaz: Should be around 27W as the TinyMu one.
I have mine plugged into a smart switch that is triggered whenever I turn on the toilet light and turns off again when the light goes off. On cold mornings I simply ask 'Alexa turn on throne' a couple of minutes before I visit.
@awaddell: Can you tell me what smart plug you use?
I have this seat and would like to set it up like you have.
I want to know this too!! This info simply not available on the net. My tight arse wants to justify the cost by the toilet roll savings.
It's smart as in it can sense your bowel movements and pre-heat the toilet seat.
I'm looking for one that has a vibrating setting.
I really wish elon musk would get into toilets. There's so much more we can innovate!
all for ludicrous mode in taking my morning dump
from the rectum to outer sphincter in 3.5 secs
would they then have massive "apple" style launch day presentations in front of large crowds who clap as he demonstrates?
Since installing this machine I now get excited about bowel movements
Hopefully just your own.
The plumbing connection cost me more than this bidet in my new home. Ridiculous.
You should sell your new home & move out to an old home. The plumbing will be cheaper.
Only thing I hate about these Xiaomi Mi Smart Toilet Seat is that controls are next to the seat. It would be hygienically better if the controls are on the wall or something. Imagine if guy pee, all the vapor goes around it, inc the control, then next person comes and touch it :)
Pee is clean
Clean, but still a bit gross. I would rather have less pee on my hands if at all possible.
I wouldn't install it in a house (or bathroom) where men stand while taking a leak.
I have just realised that.
Since installing the unit my wife now makes me sit when I take a piss. I am however starting to lose my masculinity.
I can see my wife's point, I don't think toilets are very well designed for standing… but its so much more efficient… if you don't include cleaning up.
However, by sitting I can go at night without turning light on.
If my wife let me get one of these I'd be willing to sit.
Should we start a support group for blokes that sit.
Sorry to tell you this, not just pee, sometimes water spray of faeces can landed across the panel too. But not as bad as pee vapor.
This has a very particular shape that I can't imagine it sitting right on most of our flat and oval shaped toilet seats.
I bought one of these. The plastic filter leaks from the outlet of the Xiaomi filter. This is because its made out of plastic with plastic threads and you are supposed to screw in the metal connector on the hose. Plumbers would never join a plastic male/female fitting to a metal male/female fitting. It's a disaster waiting to happen as its a weak point in your plumbing. I still did it and the threads on the plastic end got damaged and the actual outlet cracked on the Xiaomi filter. I just decided to send it back as it's not worth flooding your house. Get something Watermark Approved so you know its built to Australian Standards. You don't want to flood your house.
thanks. This is not the type of area I want to go cheap.
Mine landed today,(different deal) I bought a spare filter, was glad I did as I cross threaded the first one…. Then proceeded to cross threaded the second one…
Ended up getting the Circular saw out and cutting a Little of the edge off… Got it right the third time… I'd suggest you cross threaded, hence the leaking water.. very easy to do with these stupid plastic end…
End result was pretty good though…
