    BIo Bidet

    Hi All
    My husband passed away in March 2017 after 3 years with ALS. I installed in September 2016 a new all singing and dancing bio Bidet and it was only used for just under a year it was donated by the MND Association and would now like to give this to someone who is in much need of one it's free but will be needed to collect I live in Bristol.

    Sorry to hear your husband has left us Queenie. Condolences to you.

    That's kind of you to offer the bio-bidet.

    Love Ellie.

    Hi terry
    I am in a mnd support group at Preston . Mick just had bio bidet fitted he says it don't clean him . He says it only dose a three second burst of water .
    I have closeomat that's great I have unlimited water I have a mixer installed on the feed so water dose not run cold when I empty toilet tank . I use mine to replace urge to date I have managed without laxatives.
    So I need your opinion I have a different make so I can not say definitely sure as I am it's not set up right

    Hi Kevin and good to hear from you and it's good that you are helping others with Mnd;

    There are two reasons why the Bio Bidet might switch off after a few seconds apart from there being a hardware or software fault,

    I guess it is a year or more old. Both reasons are due to a built up of salts etc.

    Firstly and most likely, is that the small holes in the squirting thing get nearly blocked up and it causes an over pressure in the machine causing it to switch off.

    Secondly, the filter or the inside of the water heating tank can get clogged up and when asking for water, the computer is sensing that there is not enough water pressure and shuts down.

    The first problem can be solved normally by using a Darning needle to loosen the stuff in the holes, also some (anti scale) stuff can be put in them but I don't think my wife and sometimes uses white vinegar. (Spoken to the boss and she says, "press the middle button on the side of the loo 3 controls and hold it down for around ten seconds. It should then come out for around 30 seconds and then make a few noises before going back in and rinsing itself). Not sure how to get the squirting thing out without it squirting but I think that you can by just pressing the button without pressing on the seat. If this doesn't work then look at the manual and if that is not clear on how to get to the holes, let me know and I will ask the misses.

    Second possible problem, I think there is a filter on the inlet side that can be changed or possibly cleaned. If the main tank has crud in then it's probably a main dealer job.

    Whilst we are talking about the Bio Bidet, my bum can get very hot when drying on the number four setting and there is a number five setting. So if you are controlling the drying controls for your partner and they can't talk, be careful.

    I reckon this will cure the problems Kevin, please report back.

    Love Terry
