What kind of cover-bidet choose?
More recently, there was an interesting novelty in the world of sanitary equipment - electronic bidet, and as with any new thing, it makes the ordinary buyer lots of questions - why is it necessary? what are its advantages? what to buy - electronic bidet or an electronic toilet with bidet combined? what brand to choose a bidet? where to find the best reviews of the covers bidet? Doctors say that the use of electronic plumbing in everyday hygiene? On these and other questions, I will try to answer in my articles! In this article I write about the models produced specially for the Russian market.
To begin with, the first plumbing products e were first created in Japan - the country is rightly referred to as the world center of sanitary technology. After all, the notion of purity has always been at the center of Japanese culture, and bodily purity has always been a symbol of spiritual and moral purity. Since the 80s of the last century electronic plumbing begins the rapid development and spread throughout Japan reached unprecedented popularity at the end of the first decade of the XXI century, along with other devices such as computers and phones. Having achieved success in Japan, this technology begins to spread rapidly to nearby markets to Japan - Asia -. South Korea, China, etc. Along with Japanese, these countries formed their own production and brands. Simultaneously, the new emerging market pay attention to leading European and American manufacturers of sanitary ware, which is also trying to occupy a niche in this new market. It would seem that, as a result of the Russian consumer must have a huge selection of makes and models of electronic plumbing to make a purchase - but the world's major manufacturers are in no hurry to release devices designed specifically for Russia. But this is a very important issue, such as the technical features of the network 220, and voltage drops, water hardness, acidity and its dimensions toilets, it all has a great influence on technology and ultimately affects the operation of the device and its durability. All this makes the unwanted private imports from abroad. At the moment, Russia presented the Japanese production model (Toshiba, Panasonic, TOTO, Inex), South Korea (YoYo, Senspa, Blooming et al.), The European model (Geberit), but from the entire set of the models and brands in Russia are produced only a few. Elementary study showed that the adapted model produced only two companies - the leader and pioneer of the global market of electronic bidet - by TOTO, but models have been approved for adaptation and official sales in Russia are focused on the luxury segment, ie price category above 200-300 thousand rubles. Agree, TOTO products can afford a few. Hopefully, TOTO will release the Russian market and a low-end models. Another manufacturer - the Japanese company also E's Inc. - In 2011, released on the Russian market of electronic bidet under the trade mark IZUMI. Assembling this model is made in South Korea. Electronic bidet IZUMI - a budget model, which has almost all features and pretty good quality, are not inferior to the quality of products the market leaders. By the way, manufacturers such as Panasonic and Toshiba, its low-end models are also produced in South Korea. It should be noted that the quality of South Korean products actually caught up with the Japanese and South Korean products actively displaces Japanese brands from many markets. Covers bidet IZUMI sold in the budget price segment - from 13-15 thousand. Also, recently it was reported Panasonic plans to release a cover bidet specifically for the Russian market, presumably in the price range above 30 thousand rubles. Connoisseurs of famous brands recommend waiting a year, well, a maximum of two! Korean models such brands as Senspa, Blooming Bidet or YoYo, also have a good quality and is quite advanced functionality, however, the same model sold on the Korean market. This suggests that these models are designed primarily for the South Korean market. Hence, in particular, the problem of compatibility with toilets represented in the Russian market. However, if you picked the right toilet, then why not buy a cover-bidets with design you like! And finally - before you buy electronic bidet cover, note the presence of an authorized service center, since you would probably not buy a washing machine with a warranty, but no service center in your town!
