What does the Lotus Seat do?
The Lotus Seat with PureStream uses a gentle stream of warm water to cleanse the body after using the toilet.
How is the Lotus Seat different from the traditional bidet?
Instead of installing a second toilet in your bathroom, the Lotus Seat attaches to your existing toilet. Simply remove the existing seat cover and replace it with the Lotus Seat. The warm water wash of the Lotus Seat flows at a preset temperature (about 102 degrees F). The seat itself is heated for greater user comfort. After using the bidet or PureStream function, most Lotus Seat models come with a dryer and deodorizer. There is no need for paper with the Lotus Seat.
Men and women of all ages benefit from the health and hygiene the Lotus Seat provides. For senior citizens, the PureStream function, featuring a non-invasive concentrated flow of water to the rectal region, greatly improves regularity and offers relief from painful hemorrhoids and constipation. The Lotus Seat is an advance in 21st century health and hygiene and is meant to become part of the daily routine for everyone.
Who benefits from using the Lotus Seat?
Everyone benefits. Lotus Seats are very helpful to patients recovering from surgery and those with physical disabilities, dexterity and other problems that limit their range of motion. People who suffer from hemorrhoids, diarrhea, dysentery, difficult bowel movements, irritable bowel syndrome and any other ailments that involve the rectal or genital areas find the Lotus Seat effective as a source of relief and healing. The Lotus Seat is easy to use with those who have developmental disabilities such as Down's Syndrome, mental retardation, autism, or cerebral palsy. Men and women who want better hygiene before or after sexual activities find the Lotus Seat to be a great answer. Women wanting more effective feminine hygiene during monthly menstrual periods also benefit.
How do I install the Lotus Seat with PureStream?
Installing the Lotus Seat on your toilet is easy and requires very little mechanical skill. Easy-to-follow instructions are provided when you receive your bidet. Please call 877.808.0055 if you need assistance with installation. One of our trained technicians will be glad to assist. The power source for the Lotus Seat must be plugged into a GFCI outlet. For those who do not have an electrical socket near the toilet you can either run an extension cord to your bathroom outlet or have a new GFCI outlet installed behind the toilet.
How much time does it take to install the Lotus Seat?
Installing the Lotus Seat should take about 20 minutes.
How do you keep the Lotus Seat clean?
Cleaning the Lotus Seat is easy and requires little maintenance. Spray and wipe your Lotus Seat on a regular basis with any household disinfectant. The streamlined wand of the PureStream function is self-cleaning after each use and requires no additional cleaning.
Is the Lotus Seat safe to use?
Absolutely! The Lotus Seat has many built in safety features such as a thermal fuse, a high temperature sensor switch, and auto-shut off. The Lotus Seat has an adjustable temperature range of 85°F - 104°F which is the same as normal body temperature. The Lotus Seat is equipped with a drying feature with an adjustable temperature range of 104°F - 140°F, which is less than that of a hair dryer. Adjustable water pressure offers different levels of comfortable wash for users that may suffer inflammation and irritation around the sensitive areas of the rectum.
What is the power consumption of the Lotus Seat?
The Lotus Seat consumes electricity to heat the water and the toilet seat. For regular usage by a family of 4, the monthly electricity bill will increase by about $5. However, most of our Lotus Seat models have an "energy saving" feature that will help you reduce power consumption.
