A bidet, traditionally a bowl designed to wash one’s private parts for good hygiene, is a common sight in European countries. While less popular in other parts of the world, the use of bidets in the United States has picked up over the years, and not without good reason as there are various benefits to using a bidet. There are different kinds of bidets in the market, ranging from theses cheap and simple handheld bidet sprayers to the bidet toilet seats or full bidet/toilet combos.
The handheld bidet sprayer is a popular choice because of its simplicity and affordability. Known as bidet á seringue or bidet with a syringe, the upward sprayer that can be operated by a hand pump was invented in 1750 and still exists today with several modifications and improvement.
Also known as a bidet shower, handheld bidet sprayers consist of a handheld nozzle with a trigger that sprays water to assist in cleansing after using the bathroom. The sprayer is attached to a hose which in turn is attached to a water source. Handheld bidet sprayers are most suitable for those who want a bidet for one main purpose – for cleansing and can do without all the bells and whistles. Check out our list below for the best handheld bidet sprayers.

Ease of Installation
Most handheld bidet sprayers are easy to install and shouldn’t need any professional help. There are also kits that include everything you need to install the bidet sprayer, even the tools, and small parts. Some sprayers only come with just the head which is suitable if you have an existing hose and just looking to replace the sprayer head. Check out this video on how to install a bidet sprayer.
The material of sprayer and hose
Sprayers and hoses are commonly made of either ABS plastic or stainless steel. Plastic sprayers are light and easy to handle but may be easy to break and won’t last as long. Stainless-steel sprayers and hoses are more durable but are also heavier and might be an issue for users who have a weakened ability to hold objects.
The material of T-valve
A T-valve is an essential part of handheld bidet sprayers because they allow water from the outlet to go into two different directions, namely to the water tank of the toilet and the other to the bidet sprayer. Newer bidet sprayers have a brass T-valve but older ones are made from plastic. Brass T-valves are more durable and are less likely to leak.
Handheld bidet sprayers can be used for different purposes. Depending on what you will use it for, you might want to go for a bidet sprayer that offers different modes of water pressure.
Handheld vs Toilet Seat Bidet
Handheld bidet sprayers are cheaper compared to bidet toilet seat bidets. However, there is also a limit when it comes to functionality. Toilet seat bidets, especially electric ones, have various options from warm water, adjustable nozzles, to night light features and heated toilet seats.
If you are just after the main purpose of bidets which is cleaning, a handheld model will do just fine. If you prefer an upgrade to your bathroom experience and want more features that offer more comfort and luxury, toilet seat bidets are worth exploring too. A solution that’s a compromise between the two would be a bidet attachment – that goes on to your existing seat.
Handheld bidet sprayers offer convenience when it comes to hygiene and other daily tasks. Installing one in your bathroom can prove to be a good investment especially if there are people with mobility issues, the elderly, and kids in your home. Handheld bidet sprayers have different features and are made from different materials ranging from plastic to stainless steel, with the latter more durable and last longer. While there are different kinds of bidets available, a handheld sprayer is a good option for those on a limited budget and just wants a bidet sprayer that does its main purpose – cleaning.
