We’re starting a new series of posts that feature Frequently Asked Questions about toilet seat bidets and the bidet seat industry.  They are inspired by the many calls and emails we get on a daily basis about our electronic bidet seats and how they work. And without further ado…

#1 Do bidet toilet seats require electricity? What kind of electrical outlet?

Yes and no.  Electronic Bidet Seatslike the Blooming NB-R1063andBio Bidet BB-1000require a GFCI outlet of at least 15 amps.  GFCI outlets are outlets specially designed for use in bathrooms and other areas where water contact is an issue.

There are also non-electric bidet seats that don’t require an electrical outlet, like the Bio Bidet BB-i3000.  They are still able to provide many of the same hygienic benefits as their electronic counterparts, but aren’t capable of the luxury functions like heated seat /warm-air drying.
