Top Picks for Hand Held Bidet Sprayer

How to Choose a Bidet Sprayer
There are many different factors when choosing a bidet sprayer. These are some questions to keep in mind when choosing the right product.
Some bidet sprayers are designed specifically to be bidets but others have a stronger spray mode that can be used for other functions such as washing your pet or cleaning your bathroom. Any of the two SmarterFresh bidets can act as this, one even being able to use warm water. However, models like the Brondell CleanSpa Advanced Bidet are designed specifically for bidet use and are hard to use as anything else.
Control with Your Thumb or Index Finger
Controling the water flow with your thumb is often easier than with your index and the Brondell CleanSpa Advanced Bidet was designed specifically for that. More versatile models resemble the design of a garden hose and require using your index finger when using it as a bidet.
Requirements for the Warm Water Option
If warm water is a necessity for you, then the SmarterFresh Faucet Bidet Sprayer is your choice. However, this bidet can only be connected to faucets with a detachable aerator, which is the mesh attached to the tip of the faucet to deliver a mixture of air and water that creates a non-splash stream. You can confirm this by checking if anything can be screwed off from your faucet.
Best Bidet Sprayer Review
The Brondell CleanSpa Advanced Bidet is one of the best bidet sprayers in the market.
This product was made with the end user in thought. The ergonomic design makes it super easy to use and it has a nice range of pressure that you can adjust by your thumb.
The only complaint we have about this bidet is that the hose is shorter than other products, so washing from the front can be difficult depending on your setup.
- Precise spray
- Designed for ease of use
- Easy to install
- 1 year warranty
- Hose is too short for front wash
- Adding a spring to the switch can improve the bidet
The SmarterFresh Lifetime Hand Held Bidet was made to be more than just a bidet sprayer. There are two modes, soft and hard spray, and the soft is what you'd want to use as a bidet. The hose is 4 ft long so it can be used as a front wash as well. The power spray can be used for other stuff like washing down your bathroom.
The head is made out of stainless steel, which prevents it from rusting, and it has an automatic shut off lever when not pressed. The material does make the bidet heavier than common bidet sprayers, so long use may tire your hands out.
This bidet usually does not leak if you make sure to close the t-valve every time, but in the case that it does, SmarterFresh has great customer service to help you solve the problem and send spare parts when needed.
- Automatic shut off lever
- Great customer service
- Long hose
- 1 year warranty
- heavy spray head
Best for the money
The Abedoe Hand Held Bidet Toilet Sprayer Kit is a great budget option. It's very similar to the SmarterFresh Lifetime Hand Held Bidet Sprayer where the head is made of stainless steel and has a 4ft long hose. In fact, we could hardly much different about the two.
They key difference however, lies in the spray. The SmarterFresh Lifetime Hand Held Bidet Sprayer offers two spray modes, but this one has a standard lever which can output various strengths of spray. The spray can get quite strong and it's easy to overshoot, making this spray harder to use.
The Abedoe Hand Held Bidet Toilet Sprayer Kit also has a 24 month warranty, which is longer than most bidet sprayers.
- Stainless steel
- Long hose
- 24 month warranty
- Easy to overshoot
- Leaks are more common
Warm Water Option
SmarterFresh has another bidet sprayer which caught our attention. Instead of connecting directly to a water source, the SmarterFresh Faucet Bidet Sprayer connects to your sink in order to supply warm water as well. The hose is 4 ft long so make sure that your sink is close enough to use. You also have to set the temperature beforehand, which may takes some time to get the right warm cold balance.
The main problem we had about the SmarterFresh Faucet Bidet Sprayer is the compatibility. First, it only works on faucets with a removable aerator in order to screw the bidet in. Even then, different faucets come with different sizes and SmarterFresh provides adapters for these different situations. In addition, if your sink is located far from your toilet, it might be difficult to reach as well, so measure the distance before purchasing!
Other than that, the warm water option for a hand held bidet sprayer with the quality of this bidet is a game changer!
- Warm water
- Provides free sink adapter
- Not compatible with certain faucets
- requires setting the temperature of the faucet beforehand
Handheld bidet sprayers give you a bidet experience that you can control at the palm of your hands. You can control the pressure and position of the spray at your freedom and these devices are a great sanitary alternative to toilet papers.
