Whisper Bidet | a review from Mr. FG and me

Whisper Bidet Review.

(The review is from Mr. FG and me because the girls are completely hecked out by the idea of a bidet. Ha.)

Whisper Bidet in the box.

I know we are really late to the party here; lots of people bought bidets during The Great Toilet Paper Shortage of 2020.

But hey, better late than never.

We have always kinda wanted to get a bidet, but the bidet never managed to move to the top of our to-buy list.

So when Whisper Bidet emailed and offered to send me one, I said, “sure!”

What’s a Whisper Bidet?

It’s a bidet attachment that works with your existing toilet; you can buy dedicated bidet toilets, but those are rather expensive.

(understatement of the year!)

And if you already have a toilet that works fine, it seems a little wasteful to go buy another one, so it’s nice to have an option to modify your existing toilet.

How do you install a Whisper Bidet?

You basically just have to turn off the water supply, unscrew the water supply, remove your toilet lid, and then install the Whisper Bidet.

The gif below illustrates this nicely. 

Do you need plumbing skills to install it?

Nope. This is super uncomplicated; if you can screw and unscrew things, then you can do this. No tricky plumbing is necessary.

(And this is coming from someone who loathes plumbing, so you can trust me. I’m not a person who will say plumbing is easy when it’s not!)

Whisper Bidet adapter

Since the Whisper Bidet attaches to your existing toilet and your existing water supply line, it really is a simple job.

Mid-install, obviously

What comes in the package?

Just three things! You get the main piece, an adapter, and a flexible water line.

All of the Whisper Bidet parts.

What do we think of the Whisper Bidet?

It IS a bit of an adjustment if you’ve never had a bidet on your toilet before!

But it does help to reduce the use of toilet paper. And it definitely feels more hygienic than toilet paper alone.

Flexible hose.

And while this doesn’t apply to us, I know that a bidet can be very useful for people who have mobility issues (for instance, someone who is recovering from back surgery).

How much does the Whisper Bidet cost?

The Whisper Bidet costs $79.

On the one hand, that feels like kind of a lot for three pieces.

BUT. This is a tiny fraction of what a bidet toilet costs; for example, this one from Home Depot will run you $900!

Does a bidet pay for itself?

Over time, I’d definitely say it could. How long it takes depends on how much you pay for toilet paper and how much you use your bidet in place of toilet paper.

But, assuming that the bidet lasts for many years, I don’t see how it could NOT pay for itself.

Is the water warm?

Uhhh, no.

That bidet water temperature is a little bit shocking in the winter! Yikes.

But I think it will be a much more pleasant experience in the summer when the water in the pipes is warmer.

There are companies that sell bidets that attach to the warm water supply line, but I still think those would send you chilly water at first, since the water in the line would be cold.

Plus, those are more complicated to install because you have to get the line under your sink, which usually means going through your vanity cabinet somehow.

So, I’m just making peace with the cold water.

What if you don’t like the Whisper Bidet?

There’s a 60-day trial period with a money-back guarantee.

So, it’s a risk-free purchase! You can try it and if you really hate it, you can get a full refund.

Pros and Cons

Let’s sum it up with bullet points!

The pros:

  • very easy to install
  • way cheaper than a dedicated bidet toilet
  • not super noisy
  • can save money by reducing toilet paper use
  • risk-free purchase because of the return policy

The cons:

  • it’s not the most beautiful addition to the bathroom (not a big deal to me, but it might be to some)
  • it’s a little bit hard to clean around
  • the water is cold

I LOVE my bidet! I've been wanting to try one for a long time, but during COVID just bit the bullet and got one from Amazon. Fairly easy install for a handy person. Thought I'd just try the cold water one, and if I liked it, spring for the plumbing line for warm water, but I actually prefer cold and find it refreshing. With a bidet you're just so much cleaner and it cuts down on waste and wiping so your butt gets tender treatment. I use a few squares of tp to dry off (personally I'm grossed out by the idea of a hanging cloth for drying, no thanks). I plan to install one for my elderly parents if I can talk them into it. It is not the nicest looking thing in my hall bathroom but whatever. Everyone poops!

We've had a bidet for over a year and I LOVE it. When I was in NYC for a long weekend (pre-covid), I missed it almost as much as I missed my cat. Yes, you do have to do some tp to dry off, but it's way less than without the bidet. It's definitely worth the price.

OK this will be a bit indelicate. My husband bought one a few months ago.He loves it! Me?? Well, the spray kind of makes me all wet and then I have to use paper to dry off.. so I am not seeing a great savings of toilet paper.Maybe I am not aiming it properly?? Like I said, this is an indelicate post reply! LOL! Maybe I need to make it release less of a pressurized spray? Lower volume of water?? I am not sure what I might be doing wrong.Will keep trying... it is more hygienic, but I am using a lot of paper to dry off. I was kinda ok without a bidet.

We had a bidet for several years for my son who has cerebral palsy. It gave him some independence when going to the bathroom. We also found it very helpful when he broke his hip and again when he had a hip replacement surgery...it didn’t work as well with toilet chair that goes over the toilet but still helped. He was 17 at the time so this was worth it for the independence it gave him in the bathroom. Drawback was the difficulty to keep the dial clean with boys who do not aim well.

We've had a Toto washlet for the past few years after visiting Japan (they are everywhere), and it's amazing. Heated seat, warm water, and air dryer. It's definitely more hygienic and reduces our TP use by 75%. It's a huge game changer for mobility-impaired or those recovering from surgery or other conditions, etc. Highly recommend!
