    If you plan to have water pressure at your retreat after the event you might want to consider this. Very inexpensive (less than $25 on Amazon) and effective. Benefits include, less TP to store, less strain on your septic system, less litter to dispose of and improved sanitation. Installation is simple. It bolts under the commode lid using the same bolts and hooks into the water supply at the tank. Less than 10 minutes total. Drawbacks include getting use to it and convincing your wife and daughters it's not gross. But, then again, they have never used an outhouse. I am sure some of you are familiar with the concept. I had to add 3 1"x3/8th round rubber washer between the unit and the seat attachment to get the seat to lay correctly on the toilet rim.

    Believe it or not, most countries around the world have Bidets in their bathrooms. Europe (East and West), Middle East, Central Asia... I can't understand why North America doesn't have of those 'it ain't American' things, I imagine. They're great! Especially during the hot weather. Women especially love them! I will definitely install them should I ever build a house here.

    and most can be adjusted to warm , this unit I can see getting me off the throne with a squirt of ice water on the back door .
    TP is better that leaves / old papers & catalogues of the shiny !!! phone books were good.

    I worried about the cold water too but I think it will be preferable to setting in a cold outhouse.

    I'd a whole lot prefer to take a cold shot than one that might raise blisters ---

    Explain that a bidet is actually healthier for them. Women using bidet's have less urinary tract and yeast infections.

    I've never used one.

    Question: After hosing down the undercarriage how does one get the parts dry?

    I thought the whole process was a "hands off" ordeal.

    I can just see trying to mount one in between toilet to bidet with pants down , trying to keep your cloths off the floor etc.
    Im sure Asia might have a picture of the toilets in his part of the world , kinda just a hole in the ground , and if i got that low , I would not be able to get back up . I think he got a real fancy one for his tush

    A large roll of plastic tubing behind the toilet might get the water to room temperature at least. May try that this winter if it's unbearable. I'm sure my wife can find something on Pinterest to make it look snazzy.
