A Health Faucet Toilet Bidet Sprayer Installation
A health faucet, also known as a toilet bidet sprayer, is a device that attaches to a toilet and uses a spray of water to clean the user’s anus and genitals after using the bathroom.
The lever or handle on the toilet tank or the wall adjacent to the toilet is often used to operate the sprayer. You can adjust the water pressure and temperature for comfort. Some bidet sprayers also have a built-in heater to warm the water.
You can also use a handheld bidet sprayer instead of a traditional bidet, a separate piece of equipment set up next to the toilet. They are popular in many parts of the world, especially in Asia and Europe, and are becoming more common in the United States.
Benefits of Using Health Faucet Toilet Bidet Sprayer

In addition to their practical advantages, modern health faucets can serve as attractive accents for your bathroom decor.
What You Need:
Before you start installing the hand held bidet sprayer, you need to prepare the following tools:
- A roll of Teflon/PTFE seal tape (to seal the connections and prevent leaks)
- A T-valve (to connect the sprayer to the water supply valve)
- Adjustable wrench or pliers
- The bidet sprayer itself
Steps in Installing a Handheld Bidet Sprayer
The following are the standard procedures for installing a hand held bidet sprayer, also known as a health faucet or toilet bidet sprayer:
Step #1 Unpack the Handheld Bidet Sprayer Package
To begin, remove your handheld bidet from its packaging and double-check. Make sure you have all the necessary components.
The handheld bidet is typically sold as a whole unit. A bidet hose, hand held bidet sprayer, holder, T-valve, PTFE seal tape, drywall screws, anchors, and gaskets are all included.
You can set up the system with a toilet and some elbow grease. A handheld bidet with adjustable water pressure.
Controlling the intensity of the spray produced by a sprayer requires a water supply with variable water pressure. If the spray is too strong, it will be unpleasant.
Step #2 Turn Off the Toilet Tank’s Water Supply Valve
The water supply valve is usually found close to the toilet’s base, behind the toilet, or along the wall adjacent to the toilet.
Turn the handle fill valve underneath or lever counterclockwise until the water stops flowing to turn off the water supply. The water supply to the toilet bowl will be cut off.
Note: Make sure to remove the water supply prior to removing the water supply valve.
Step #3 Unscrew the Water Supply Nut
Slowly turn the nut counterclockwise with a pipe wrench or an adjustable wrench to loosen it. Use your other hand to hold the supply line so it will not turn as you loosen the nut.
You can remove the water supply line from the bottom of the toilet tank once you loosen the nut.
Find the water closet’s fill valve and turn it on. Remove the water supply hose from the fill valve using the spanner.
Step #4 Connect the T- Valve to the Water Supply Line
With a wire brush, clean the water supply line end to remove any dirt and debris. Then insert the T-valve into the water supply line end, and make sure the outlet and inlet ports are facing the right direction.
Tighten the compression fittings to secure the T-valve in position.
Note: Keep in mind that the T-top valve is where you’ll put the flat rubber washer.
Step #5 Connect the Water Line
After you’ve attached the T-valve to the toilet tank, thread the water supply line into the fill valve underneath. Just tighten your grip on your hand once more.
The bidet sprayer will be attached to the T-other valve’s female thread.
Step #6 Connect the Bidet Spray to the T-Valve
On one end of the bidet spray, connect the bidet hose included in the bidet spray package. Then attach the bidet hose to the other end of the T-valve outlet.
Check the connection by turning the T-valve on. Then, turn on the bidet spray.
Note: If the hand held bidet sprayer hose is too short, you need to buy an additional bidet hose to attach to the bidet spray to the T-valve.
Make sure the T-valve is compatible with the material of the pipe you are attaching, and follow the instructions in the manual.
Step #7 Set up Holder for Spray Bottle
When not in use, the handheld bidet’s spray nozzle can be stored in its included holder. The next step is to set up the holder for the spray bottle.
The sprayer holder has two possible mounting locations, either on the wall or on the edge of the toilet tank.
Having it attached to the toilet tank is an option. Grab the tank’s rim and pull the lid up and down to open and close the tank.
The drywall screws and anchors required for wall mounting are included in the package, but you can get replacements at any hardware shop or online.
Just drop the sprayer into the holder, and you are done.
Step #8 Sprayer Leak Test
Now would be a good time to see if the bidet springs any leaks.
Turn the water back on, but do it slowly. We then went around, and hand tightened everything, but you may always go back and give it another twist if you feel it needs it.
The water should begin flowing, and the tank will fill up.
Turn the water valve back to its original position by turning it counterclockwise.
Turn on the system’s valve to try out the sprayer. This part of the T-valve can be found on its outside.
When aiming the sprayer at the bowl of a toilet, carefully depress the sprayer’s trigger until water begins to flow out.
Ensure there are no air leaks at the hose’s connection points. If the sprayer’s opening is steady, you can keep pressing the trigger to release more water.
Note: You can reduce the water pressure somewhat if even the weakest spray setting is too intense for your liking and you have very high water pressure. The water pressure is adjustable via the wall-mounted water valve.
Warm Water Hand-Held Bidets
Temperature controls are not only for bidet settings!
The use of bidet mixing valves is easy. This mix valve is connected directly to your water line beneath your sink.
You can control hot and cold water by adjusting the valve handles to control a variable temperature bidet spray.
Reasons Why Bidet Sprayer Leaks
Bidet leaks occur outside of the installation process when a hand-held bidet is not completely switched off after each usage.
The first step in correctly turning off a hand held bidet is to stop the water flow at the sprayer head, but the second and most important step is to turn off the bidet’s T-valve.
Similar to garden hoses, bidet sprayers operate by giving your toilet a jet spray instead of water. After using the garden hose nozzle to water your plants, simply release the lever to stop the flow of water.
But the water is still running! The spigot at the opposite end of the hose still needs to be turned off. The hose will leak or explode if you don’t.
The same logic also holds true for bidet sprayers. The spray jet is stopped when you release the sprayer’s handle or trigger.
However, the bidet water supply hose and sprayer head are still being pressed against by water pressure. This pressure gradually damages things, which is followed by leaks.
If the damage is bad enough, a bathroom can potentially flood. The pressure is released by entirely closing the T-valve off to the water supply.
How to Fix a Leaking Bidet Sprayer?
If there is already a leak, the damaged bidet component needs to be replaced. Both replacement hoses and sprayer heads are available from Faucetu.
After you’ve changed the leaking sprayer or bidet hose, you may keep your bidet from leaking by turning off the T-valve after each usage.
We strongly advise moving to a different model of bidet if you can’t consistently shut off your bidet’s T-valve.
There are many bidet seats and attachments available from Faucetu that don’t require a shut off valve but still provide excellent bidet cleaning.
