D'Lucci Smart Bidet Toilet Seat Installation in Sydney

The Nu-Trend team was called out to help with a Sydney bathroom plumbing installation for a DLUCCI Smart Bidet Toilet Seat. D’Lucci is a brand that is available at Bunnings from sinks to spa-inspired creations that turn bathroom into what they call ‘an oasis of tranquillity’ and apparently they ‘never stop working to make great design attainable.’

D’Lucci makes a range of bathroom solutions that are optimised to be functional like their DLU0071 Smart Bidet Toilet Seat that has a wireless control and lots of different controls. It is a cost effective bidet solution for your toilet that doesn’t require the room to be renovated.

Is a D'Lucci toilet seat and bidet toilet sanitary?

A traditional bidet toilet will be a permanent fixture in the bathroom just like a traditional toilet or shower would be. A standalone bidet toilet fixture sits alongside the normal toilet so you can clean your genitals. Using water is considered more sanitary because it gently cleans the area instead of smearing waste on your skin with toilet paper.  

The norm in most Australian homes is to use toilet paper, but you can get a more hygienic clean of your private parts by using water to clean up rather than using the toilet paper, just like you do in a shower. Water is a lot more thorough than paper wipes and the effectiveness (or lack of it) of hand washing after wiping is also an issue. Bidets can help relieve haemorrhoids, as well as some of the symptoms of constipation and inflammatory bowel disease.

Do you wipe after using a bidet toilet?

Wiping after using a bidet is pretty simple actually. Gently wipe or blot the wet areas to soak up any excess water. Remember that the area is already clean; one gentle wipe or dab should do the trick. In most cases you can use toilet paper to do this as as most people already have it in their bathrooms. Although some people may use a towel, just like you would after you have a shower. 

If you have a high end bidet that has built in drying fans then you may not need to wipe at all because the toilet seat will do all the work for you.

Can you install a bidet on any toilet?

Bidet toilet seats are generally designed to be installed by anyone so there are no special skills really needed to place it onto a toilet. Although if you have to use a qualified plumber if the product is being connected to Sydney’s drinking water supply. There are a range of bidet toilet seats available and some will include the ability to heat the water, fan drying and more. For a lot of Sydney home owners, installing a bidet toilet seat is a quick and easy solution.

How much does it cost to install the D'Lucci Smart Bidet Toilet Seat in Sydney?

In Australia, the installation of bidet toilet products connected to a drinking water supply must be done by a licensed plumber in Sydney like Nu-Trend – it’s actually illegal to do it yourself.

All bidet toilet products must also be certified through the WaterMark Certification Scheme.

Installing the D’Lucci smart bidet toilet seat model DLU0071 will usually cost between $100 and $200 assuming the existing plumbing can be used around your toilet. This bidet toilet seat has a wireless remote control with different cleaning modes to provide hands-free hygienic cleaning and help the environment by reducing toilet paper waste.

  • Wireless remote control with four cleaning modes: posterior, feminine, swing and massage

Luckily in this situation the property owner had already purchased the bidet toilet seat and the existing electricals and plumbing was nearby. It meant this bidet installation was pretty straight forward and we didn’t need to relocate any services or create extensions etc.
 
 
In this situation a bidet installation can be done for around $200 and be done in less than 2 hours to make it a quick and easy bathroom accessory to get installed. We altered the mini tap connection to suit the cistern and toilet seat for the water supply.
 

What types of bidet spray installations are available 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, electrical 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 bidet toilet
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 bidet installation in Sydney and general 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.
