Hygienic shower for the toilet with a mixer: choose the optimal model
To create a comfortable environment for intimate hygiene, you can use a hygienic shower for the toilet. It is not difficult to acquire and install such a device, moreover, its price is quite democratic. It is worth getting acquainted with the existing types and models of wall mounted faucets with hygienic shower.
Manufacturers offer several varieties of compact devices for personal intimate hygiene. They differ in design and, accordingly, in cost. These are models built into the lid of the toilet bowl or directly into the toilet mounted on a wall or sink.
The popularity of the hygienic shower with a toilet mixer is rapidly gaining momentum. Given the modest size of bathrooms, it allows you to acquire the function of a bidet in cramped conditions. Many buyers appreciated the idea of manufacturers to combine a hygienic shower with a mixer.
The design of the faucet with a hygienic shower (photos are presented on the websites of manufacturers) is no different from conventional faucets for a washbasin, except for the addition of a design with a hose with a watering can for a hygienic shower. The watering can is attached to the wall or to the cistern of the toilet bowl, which allows you to comfortably use it for hygienic purposes. It should be noted that the faucet can function separately from the hygienic shower itself, since water flows into the shower only when the button is pressed on the watering can itself.
If the bathroom is equipped with a sink, it makes sense to purchase a sink mixer with a hygienic shower. The design of the hygienic shower in the toilet (photo to confirm) is somewhat different from the shower for the sink. First, the watering can itself is more compact, and the flow control is enclosed in a button on the watering can. Often, after carrying out the procedures, many turn off only the button, without blocking the mixer tap itself. In this case, the shower hose remains under pressure, which is fraught with undesirable consequences.
In the case when the hygienic shower is combined with a sink mixer, this will not happen, since, with the shower closed, water will flow through the mixer spout. In any case, leave the faucet tap open will not work.
Prices for faucets with a shower for a sink range from 4,600 rubles (SMARTsant, Russia) to 37,500 rubles (Grohe, Germany).

Installation of the mixer is made at a convenient height for all family members. A towel holder and a dispenser for liquid soap are installed next to the watering can holder.

The principle of operation of such a mixer with a hygienic shower is the following: when the lever is opened, water enters the washbasin through the spout of the mixer and flows into the shower hose. But the shut-off valve does not allow water to flow from the watering can until you press the button on the shower watering can. As soon as water flows from the watering can, it stops pouring from the spout of the mixer. This principle of operation allows in any case to block the water after the procedures with the help of a lever.
