Hand held bidet sprayers, like all bidets, are slowing gaining popularity across the western world.

They’re above all a convenient and hygienic way of washing yourself after going to the toilet, but that’s not all.

They’ll also save you time, money and space (you’ll no longer have to store rolls of toilet paper).

Hand held bidets are very cost-efficient compared to a standalone bidet, and you can use them for multiple things besides a bum gun. I use mine to wash my dogs after a muddy walk!

On top of all this, they reduce toilet paper usage, which is good for the environment.

So whether you’re trying to save time, money or trees, my picks for the best hand held bidets should do the job.

Best Hand Held Bidet Sprayers

My picks for the best bidet sprayer kits.

These are my favorite options for all ranges of budgets and needs.

RinseWorks Aquaus 360 Patented Bidet

The Rinse Works Aquaus 360 bidet is pretty unique, and its innovative design is why I’ve rated it as our top pick for the top-rated held bidet sprayer.

This bidet head uses a rotatable switch rather than a lever to control the water pressure. This makes it super easy to control.

You can open the switch slowly while you position the bidet and only open it fully when you’re ready, meaning you no longer have to suffer the surprise of a misaimed spray.

Best of all, you can open the switch from both sides of the bidet, so you can use it from multiple different angles.

The bidet comes with a 5-inch extension arm that will create an 11-inch long spray head. This allows you to effectively clean your backside from the front Very useful for plus-sized users and caregivers.

The mechanics of this bidet are also very impressive.

There’s a leak-proof brass valve in the spray head that RinseWorks say will hold up for years, and the t-valve is set up so the shut-off switch faces forwards rather than backwards. This makes it easy to reach while sitting on the toilet.

RinseWorks also have a hand held bidet sprayer with warm water functionality that attaches to a showerhead and comes with a 96-inch long hose.

Pros
  • 360-degree switch with precision pressure control
  • extended arm

The sleek design comes in 4 different finishes, gold, nickel, chrome, and black.

The chrome version has a traditional thumb lever for controlling the pressure rather than adjusting it via the valve. But it only has one spray function.

Abedoe’s bidet hose has both manual and automatic spray modes, as well as two different spray patterns.

In automatic mode, it’ll provide a constant stream of water without you having to keep the lever pushed down. Because of this, I’ve rated it the best hand held bidet for the elderly and people with reduced hand mobility.

Sontiy uses a series of ceramic disk seals in the sprayer head instead of the standard spring valve. They say this design is high pressure resistant and can last for up to 15 years.

Unlike other bidets, the t-valve doesn’t share a shut-off knob with the toilet tank. Therefore, there’s no need to turn the t-valve off.

The PVC hose is reinforced for durability, and the t-valve is metal, so it will stand the test of time.

You can adjust the pressure at the t-valve to make sure it’s comfortable for you before use, but you cannot change it with the spray head.

The metal hose is 86-inches long so will reach just about anything in your bathroom. One small thing to note is that depending on how your sink and toilet are positioned the loose hose could become a trip hazard.

The spray head comes with two different spray settings, a soft one and a more powerful one.

Benefits of Hand Held Bidet Sprayers

There are several different types of bidet on the market today.

You can pick from travel bidets, bidet seat attachments, traditional ceramic bidets, bidet and toilet seat combos, and last but not least, a hand held bidet sprayer.

All of them help improve your personal hygiene and save you buying toilet paper.

So why should you pick a hand held bidet over a different type?

In short, they combine the mobility of a portable bidet with the quality and power of a bidet seat.

The ability to move the spray head is by far the most significant advantage a hand held bidet has, it means:

  • You’re able to clean yourself from different positions and angles, such as from the front which makes them convenient for females as well as males
  • You can aim the spray precisely as you need for more efficient cleaning (and there’ll be less water on the toilet seat)
  • You can use the bidet to clean other things besides your bum. These attachments are commonly used as cloth diaper sprayers, to clean pets, or to clean a muddy pair of shoes
  • You can use it to rinse the toilet after use

A portable bidet is also maneuverable, but lacks pressure compared to hand held attachments so are often not as efficient at cleaning.

Furthermore, hand held bidets are non-electric so a great option if you don’t have any electrical outlets in your bathroom. It also makes them easy to install which is helpful if you’re renting and don’t want any hassle.

If you are renting why not check out my list of some other bidet options for renters.

How Does A Hand Held Bidet Work?

Hand held bidet sprayers are powered by water pressure.

They consist of 3 parts, a t-valve, a hose and a spray head.

The t-valve is connected to your water line and acts as a splitter, splitting the water between your toilet tank and the bidet sprayer.

It’s used to control how much pressure gets into the bidet. When the t-valve is closed, no water can run through the bidet, and when it’s fully open water is free to flow.

At full pressure bidets can be pretty powerful, so if you prefer a lower pressure try only opening the t-valve partway.

Once you’ve opened the t-valve and the bidet is pressurised, you can release the water spray. If you need some more advice on how to use a bidet hose then you can read my helpful guide.

After you’re finished using it, most manufacturers suggest turning the t-valve off.

Hand Held Bidet Sprayer Buying Guide

Before buying a bidet sprayer here a few things you should consider:

Materials Used

Generally, the spray heads are made from either ABS plastic or stainless steel.

Stainless steel is the premium option because it’s more durable and will last longer, but it can be prone to rust depending on the type of steel. ABS plastic heads tend to come with a chrome-plated finish, but won’t always stand up to heavy wear.

The hoses are most commonly made with a stainless steel exterior, but the more budget options will use PVC. Both are flexible materials. The linings are normally made from EDPM rubber, and some linings will also use nylon for extra reinforcement.

Lastly, every hand held bidet sprayer comes with a metal t-valve. 99% of these will be metal.

Pressure Control Mechanism

Cheaper hand held bidets will only have the option of controlling the water pressure via the t-valve, which can be inconvenient, especially if more than one person uses the bidet.

Other bidets come with pressure controllers on the spray head, these come in two primary forms, a lever which you have to push down with your thumb, or a rotating switch.

The levers can be very sensitive and are not always easy to control. However, you can stop the water flow very quickly by releasing the lever.

For us, the best hand held bidets come with a sliding switch to control the pressure. These are much easier to control than a lever and allow a smooth transition between high pressure and low pressure.

Construction

An essential feature of any hand held bidet is how it deals with high pressure. This has a direct impact on how long the bidet will last and will help prevent any leaks.

Some bidets, often the ones with a thumb lever, are fitted with a spring valve. These valves work well, but you do have to remember to turn the t-valve off after every use and release the pressure as they won’t withstand high pressure for long periods.

An alternative to a spring valve, often found in bidets with a rotating switch, is a brass valve that’s fitted with ceramic seals. It’s claimed these seals have a burst rate of up to 250 PSI and can last over 15 years.

Spray Pattern

Hand held bidet sprayers come with a range of different spray patterns. They vary between being spread out for full coverage and being much thinner, but more powerful for a better-targeted spray.

Some sprayer heads have different spray patterns built-in which you can switch between by rotating the nozzle. These are the best type of hand held bidets for families because each user can pick the spray pattern they prefer.

Installation Method

Most bidets are very easy to install, requiring no tools and taking around 10 minutes.

However, some require a lot more effort or need to be installed via the sink or shower, which can be impractical depending on the layout of your bathroom.

Although harder to install, these bidets tend to come with the added benefit of allowing hot or cold water to flow. No pain, no gain as they say!

Warranty

As with most pieces of hardware, bidets come with a warranty.

This can be anything from 1 year to a lifetime.

I recommend looking at the manufactures policy, especially as these types of bidets do wear out eventually and you may need to get replacement parts.

Do I Need To Turn The T-valve Off After Every Use?

Yes!

When you stop spraying water out of the bidet, this doesn’t stop water flowing into the hose. This flow of water creates a build-up of pressure inside the bidet.

The parts that makeup hand held bidets can deal with high pressure for a short period, but extended periods of high pressure can wear the parts down and can cause them to fail flooding your bathroom.

Turning off the t-valve stops water flowing through to the bidet and releases any pressure, helping prevent any unwanted leaks and prolonging the life of the bidet sprayer.

This is why it’s recommended you always turn off the t-valve after use.

There are some hand held bidets who claim to get round this with different designs and technologies. While it’s likely that these bidets will be less prone to bursting, turning the t-valve off will still help prolong their life.

How To Install A Hand Held Bidet

Pretty much all the bidets featured on this list come with the same basic parts and can be installed in the same way. It should only take around 10 minutes.

In the box you’ll recieve:

  • mount
  • hose
  • sprayer head
  • t-valve
  • screws
  • o-rings
  • teflon tape

Why Is My Bidet Sprayer Leaking?

Here are a few common reasons your bidet might be leaking.

Before you try and fix any leaks make sure the main water valve is switched off and the toilet tank is empty.

Tight Connections

Most manufacturers warn against tightening connections too much as this can lead to leaks.

People sometimes try to fix leaks by tightening any leaky connections, but often this just makes the situation worse.

If you’ve discovered a leak near the t-valve, try loosening the connections and see if it helps.

Defective Nozzle

Over time the bidet parts will naturally wear and may need to be replaced.

If you notice a leak from the spray head it’s likely something in it has worn out. You can take it apart yourself and see if you can fix the problem, or you can just buy a replacement head.

Snapped Hose

This one should be fairly easy to spot, and easy to fix by buying a replacement hose.

You should also check your hose for clogs as this can cause leaks.
