No plumber or prior experience needed. The bum-guns come in a kit:

You may call that a bidet. I do not.

I recommend the Aquaus 360 over any "kitchen sprayer" model bum gun.

Unless it is a case of diarrhea,else TP is good enough .

The Europeans use bidet,I think because many European homes are old and they dont have shower or bathtub and in some public places,the toilet is a hole on the ground where you have to stoop down to do #2 and for a woman,you have to stoop down for both #1 and #2,the place is often filthy.

Knowing how to use certain facilities even as female sure beats the rules in certain West Coast cities.
What does stooping down do?
No showers/bath tubs? Where and when have you been in Europe?
As far as filthy goes - plenty of that going around sidewalks in the US.

Simple eat less. Age old principle applies - in and out.

I'm single so savings amount to just a little bit. Certainly not worth a bidet or any other equipment or fixture.
We use Staples rewards for TP and buy by the case.
