Fine, have a filthy butt. I'll sit here on my throne with water shooting up my rear, with a smile on my face. Seriously tho, bidets are great. When going somewhere without one, you don't feel clean anymore, and the amount of TP wasted wiping is ridiculous.

on the BB-270 is says "Built-in cold water bypass", does anyone know what that is?

in the morning my hot water pipe takes 2-3 min of cold water flush before hot water gets to the sink, is the bypass going to push the cold water to the cold side until hot water makes it to the bidet?

Hello,

The 'cold water bypass' allows the both the hot and cold water to run independently of each other instead of mixing the two to adjust the temperature.

Thank You,

Here is the correct answer. A cold water bypass simply ensures that even if there is a loss of pressure on the hot water side, that cold water is able to continue to flow independently. This also helps prevent accidental siphoning of cold water into the hot water supply.

To answer your specific question - this will not do anything to make hot water get to the unit any faster.

There is really nothing you can do to solve that unless you have some way of manually purging the hot water line of cold water before using the unit and even then you'd have to purge it as close to the unit as possible to minimize the amount of cold water in the tube.

This is why the more expensive units have built-in water heaters and some of the top-of-the-line units basically have tankless water heater technology.

IMO, it is pointless to simply connect a bidet to a hot water line because no matter what you will need to go through all of the cold water in the lines before the hot water reaches you.

"Nothing you can do", really . . . that's not what my friends at TOH told me. Here are couple links for for you.

Better to buy a recirculation pump with a low cost bedet with a total cost less then a single heated bedet. And on top of that the pump will save you a lot of money over the years.

Ahh those recirc pumps cost around $200 so they hadn't really crossed my mind. But yes, that would help a lot.

Although, it's worth mentioning that hot water isn't the only benefit of the nicer bidets - it's things like the pre-mist, deodorizer, adjustable positioning, some have seat warming, etc. Of course those things may not matter to you (and for the record I own the A3 myself) but just pointing out that hot water isn't the only benefit of using that money towards a bidet instead.

However, someone actually went through and did the math and at least in their house the recirc pump was costing them more money to run then they would save in water. The calculation will be largely dependent on how hot you are keeping your water in the lines as compared to the average ambient temperature at your house (cost of heat loss). Also cost of water and how much you actually waste currently. I know that some recirc pumps work on timers too so you can have them off at night, so that's also relevant to the calculation too.

I bought the A3 for my guest bathroom. I've had hot water units like the BB-270 before and agree, it's not worth piping your hot water line since it takes so long to prime. I have the UB4800 in my master bath, which is totally worth it since the water is warm immediately (+added benefits of heated seat, slow close lid, etc)

yes, with improper installation and lack understanding how the device works one can negate any benefit of anything. however, the cost of the pump is negligible if one was to have couple of bedet. putting $200-300 in a single bedet that can break anytime . . . to me i prefer to pay $10-20 for a bidet and a pump that can be use for all application through the house at a cost of less than a single hot-water bedet.

yes, for people who need deodorant my application would not work.
