installation Guide for Aquaus 360° Bidet Sprayer
Installing the Aquaus 360° bidet sprayer is a straightforward process. Follow these steps:
NOTE – Toilet must have a flexible water supply line to install the Aquaus properly.
NOTE – Before installation, place a small towel or shallow pan under your water supply line.
NOTE – Make sure the nut above the water line nut is tightly screwed against the bottom of your toilet tank to prevent water leakage. If there is any leaking, refer to the troubleshooting photo below.
Installing the T-Valve: Start by shutting off the toilet’s water by turning the valve handle clockwise. Flush the toilet while holding the flush lever until all the water has drained except for a small amount at the bottom of the tank. Place a towel or shallow pan below the water line connection area. Screw the Aquaus T-valve nut onto the toilet threads, ensuring the washer is in the nut and pushed to the bottom. Turn the nut counterclockwise, being careful not to cross-thread it. Position the valve for easy access to the on/off safety valve lever while sitting on the toilet and finish tightening the nut firmly by hand.
Attaching the Water Supply Line: Unscrew the hand-tight water supply line nut by turning it clockwise. Make sure the rubber washer is still in the nut and not damaged. Screw the water supply line nut onto the T-valve’s male threads by turning it counterclockwise. Be cautious not to cross-thread the nut.
Connecting the Hose and Sprayer: Screw the hose nut onto the half-inch T-valve threads by turning it counterclockwise. Ensure the washer is pushed to the bottom. Screw the other end of the hose onto the sprayer threads, making sure the rubber washer is in place. Hand tighten the nut firmly. Use an adjustable wrench on the groove at the bottom of the hose nut to turn it tighter if needed.
Mounting the Spray Wand Holder: Hang the pre-assembled toilet tank clip and spray wand holder over the edge of the tank under the lid. Alternatively, you can mount the holder on the wall by removing the stainless steel clip. Ensure the sprayer fits securely in the holder without accidentally turning on the water flow.
Checking for Leaks: After installation, check for leaks. Turn off the spray wand and T-valve, then slowly turn on the water valve for the toilet. Check for any leaks from the T-valve, hose, or spray wand. If no leaks are detected, slowly turn on the spray wand to check its functionality. Always turn off the safety shut-off valve after each use of the sprayer.
Step 1: Locate and Grab the Bidet Sprayer
The first step is to locate the bidet sprayer next to the toilet. The sprayer is positioned on a hook or holder specifically designed for it. Grab the bidet sprayer securely, ensuring a firm grip for ease of use.
Step 2: Open the Shut-off Valve
Before you start using the bidet sprayer, it’s important to open the shut-off valve to allow water to flow through. This can be done by turning the valve counterclockwise. Don’t worry, the water won’t start shooting automatically, so you have control over when and how it is used.
Step 3: Choose the Method of Use
Using a bidet is a personal choice, and there are different methods you can employ. Depending on your flexibility and comfort, you can choose to enter either through the rear of the seat or the front. Some females may prefer to spray through the front of the seat to effectively clean both the anal and genital regions simultaneously. Find the method that works best for you.
Step 4: Start Spraying
Once you have positioned yourself comfortably, lightly push the lever on the bidet sprayer handle to start the spraying process. It’s important to aim the sprayer at an angle for the most effective cleaning and to avoid any splashback from inside the toilet bowl. Experiment with different angles to find what works best for you.
Note: It may take a few uses to learn the desired pressures and angles of the bidet sprayer before you feel comfortable. Don’t get discouraged after a couple of uses; give yourself time to get used to the bidet operation.
