Our agent had never seen anything like it.

2. Shop Amazon under bidet!

See what's up, I think those will work, but are kind of midiaevil compared to the consumer models.

11. Obviously self engineered

I guess they didn't want to replace the toilets so they rigged this up.

14. No shit, Mr Crapper!

We recently installed a retrofit bidet here. A cold water retrofit is ~ $35, MUCH neater without the "steampunk" plumbing. We did a hot/cold water one, no plumber required, on a standard "ADA" height toilet. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JG3NVG2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

3. I'm no bidet expert

But I guess itís like a power washer? That could be a pressure valve?

Of course getting it adjusted just right would be important.

17. That's a standard ball valve.

One could control the volume by how much you opened the valve but the pressure would be equal to the house pressure.

4. Looks more like a pressure washer for your hiney-hole than a bidet.

Could be entertaining as all get out for you when your house guests get a surprise.

5. If you are in the cold north in the winter time,

with out a mixing valve this thing would wake you RIGHT UP!
Yes this thing would work but the execution is "butt ugly" ...... pardon the pun...

19. Down here in So Fla it's in the high 70's in the summer and high 60's in the winter, so

it would be tolerable.... Although my butt might disagree...

10. Yes we and our agent said words to that effect

She's been selling houses for probably 20 years and she'd never seen anything like this. I didn't even notice the one downstairs.

8. No it's not an outlet

If that's the right term. It's a flexible metal "tube" and a steel cap. ???

12. Perhaps bidets were installed at one time

and some of the plumbing was left in case someone wanted to install new ones.

they are a good valve. some are marked for WOG (water, oil, gas) applications.

21. I take it your previous owner was Donald Trump?

A man's got to be seriously full of shit to need a pressure washer for his ass.
