I can now have a wee in the night without traipsing to the far, cold corner of the house. Here it is, sitting in its own little corner, all new and clean and lovely. To the side is the Shattaf, nicknamed the Shitoff by the tradies. It is the new way of including a bidet. No-one in Bishop, Darlo or Stockton had any idea what we wanted. I think some of the plumbing/bathroom outlets still think bidets are something to do with your feet. Eventually we tracked down a good one, with hot/cold mixer, on the internet and it came with fully illustrated instructions for installation, which was greatly appreciated by our plumber
It can do you backwards and frontwards and the little circular control fixes the temperature and force of water. The plumber informed me that it came out fast but was reluctant to demonstrate. It is quite a talking point and the electrician and painter have also been round for a look.
You can look too and even use it if you come to visit!
