Do you prefer to use hot or cold water when washing your behind? The perfect bidet water temperature can make the experience more comfortable, enjoyable, and beneficial to your health.
How do bidets get warm water? Simple, from your cold water line. Thanks to the power of instant water heaters, you are able to get the exact temperature water you want, on demand! To make the bidet water warm, an adjustable knob or button will allow you to adjust how much cold and warm water is mixed to create the perfect temperature. Everyone is different, so you may need to experiment a little bit to find the right setting with your warm water bidet. If you already have a bidet and the bidet water is too cold, you will definitely want to upgrade to a bidet with an instant water heater.
Most bidet toilets and bidet seats have a range of temperatures that you can choose from, some even have a heated dry setting which can make the experience even more comfortable. The temperature you choose can depend on your preferences and what feels best for you or it could be a matter of what benefits you would like to enjoy. Unlimited warm water makes it a lot easier to find your ideal temperature without worrying about running out of hot water and getting a cold shock. Yikes!
If you’re not sure what temperature to choose, start with a medium setting and see how that feels. You can always adjust the temperature later if needed.

Hot water provides better hygiene as it kills more germs. Research from the University of Arizona found that washing with hot water resulted in less bacteria on the hands. A bidet with a heated seat and adjustable water temperature provides the utmost comfort and cleanliness for the user. There's a reason so many countries around the world use bidets!
Reduces anal issues

Getting a bidet that sprays warm water and features an adjustable temperatures selector can help to avoid this issue.
Washing with hot water can feel more relaxing and it can provide a sense of cleanliness that cannot be replicated with cold water. Bidet toilet seats with adjustable water temperatures make it easy to find the perfect hot water temperature for you, ensuring that you always enjoy a relaxing experience.
