Bathroom plumber in Sydney to install a Pozzi Ginori Bidet
The Nu-Trend team was called out to help with a small bathroom renovation in Sydney for a Pozzi Ginori bidet. Installing a bidet isn’t the most common bathroom renovation idea although it is a common plumbing question we get asked about.
This brand of bidet has been around since 1735 when the Marquis Carlo Ginori started in Florence and then in Doccia with the activity of his famous Manifattura on of the first and prestigious in Europe. Their focus has always been ceramic sanitary ware with production in Italy and today the group is one of the largest in the world. In 2015 Geberit AG acquired the Sanitec Group and today it is considered to be one of the best manufacturers of washbasins, mirrors, bathroom sets and other accessories for bathrooms – all made in Italy.
The Pozzi Ginori bidet is a bowl or receptacle designed to be sat on for the purpose of washing your genitalia, perineum, inner buttocks and around your anus. Not everyone enjoys the sensation that this can give you and will prefer traditional methods like using toilet paper. Although modern bidets include a plumbed-in water supply, drainage opening and comply with all the modern plumbing regulations. There are even bidet seats that go on top of your existing toilet.
How did our plumber install the Pozzi Ginori bidet?
There wouldn’t be too many bathroom renovation companies in Sydney that couldn’t install a Pozzi Ginori bidet as the process is very similar to setting up a new toilet. So generally you will require a local plumber who can give you a free quotation and work out if there would be any renovation required to install the bidet. This could involve adjusting the existing floor tiling, moving service piping or removal of an existing bidet.
In this scenario we didn’t do a small bathroom renovation but the client wanted to have a Pozzi Ginori bidet installed in their existing small bathroom. Luckily there were lots of spare tiles from the original bathroom renovation so it meant we could remove the shower waste area and utilise that with altered drainage to install the bidet. We had to wet saw cut the floor and chased the wall to provide the appropriate water and drainage outlets needed. We managed to waterproof, render and tile it all back to a great condition to the point the client couldn’t tell what was new vs old. So for this room there was the loss of a shower, but there were other bathrooms in the house so this didn’t matter.
What types of bidet can Nu-Trend install in Sydney?
1. Toilet seat bidets
A toilet seat bidet comes in different models with the most popular ones the newer electric models. Pricing for one of these can vary with cheaper models available from around $700 to all-in-one units around $1,500.
While these are relatively cheap to other options it is important to consider that because the bidet seats attach to your existing toilet, the mess stays in the bowl and there could potentially be spillage around the edges making it a little harder to clean later. You can use a bidet to clean your butt with water after you poop and while traditional bidets are separate from your toilet these more modern ones attach to any standard toilet quickly.
Installation for a toilet seat bidet can vary from $400 up to $4,000 it just really depends on the situation in your bathroom in relation to plumbing, electricals and sewage.
2. Bidet spray kits
A bidet spray kit is a quicker alternative to get installed as it is adapted to the existing water supply. The spray kits are available from $80 depending on the brand, design and material used and installation will vary between $50 and $500 depending on the complexity of your bathroom set up.
3. Traditional bidets
A traditional bidet is what we call ‘old skool’ and is a permanent solution that involves a small renovation to your bathroom. Getting one of these installed can vary between $800 and $4,000 depending on the situation and type of unit chosen. You must have a licensed plumber install this type of unit and we have the added benefit of 20 years bathroom renovation experience to get the job done properly.

How we make bathroom plumbing stress free.
We make sure everyone knows what areas of the house can or cannot be used. So for example we make sure there are warnings on the toilet or sinks to make sure someone doesn’t use them be accident before they have finished being installed.
A shower wall niche has become a modern trend for new bathroom renovations. For this room it was a full length niche spanning the wall which made it a design feature and practical element for the shower area. It utilises empty space in the wall to turn it into a shelf for storing common shower items. No more ugly hanging baskets or other ugly items in your shower but have an easy to reach shelf.
A feature wall can add impact and style to any bathroom size whether it is for a house, unit or apartment. It gives you that wow factor that can transform a bathroom.
A floating vanity unit can help make a room feel larger. Visually what happens is your eye can see more of the floor and naturally the room or space feels larger because you can see further. By placing a vanity unit, cupboard or other furniture on the walls in a floating style you can make any small bathroom feel larger.
A complete clean up from street to bathroom. We don’t leave mess anywhere and make sure every element has been cleaned to return it to normal.
We also take care of the little things like making sure the rubbish removal bin is covered so that dirt, debris etc doesn’t fly out on the street and it makes it easier to be taken away.
