How to choose a toilet?

The bottom of the pan is not boxed so it allows for easy carefree flushing without anything left behind. It is a great choice for people with children. This is a popular and affordable choice, and eco-friendly as well.
Which to choose, Intelligent toilet or bidet?
Both the intelligent toilet and bidet toilet seat cover have similar cleaning functions, and are both great for your personal hygiene needs, however, the intelligent toilet has more functions than a bidet, such as; night lights, seat warmers, automatic flushing sensors, many different female/male wash cycles, and much more. The question is, do you purchase a smart toilet suite and smart toilet cover? Actually, an intelligent toilet will implement most of those hygiene and care functions. If you think installing a toilet seat is a hassle, you can choose a smart toilet suite.
A bidet is just a bowl or receptacle to use as a cleaning tool after every use, this is used to promote good personal hygiene by keeping you fresh after every use. There are also two types you can choose from: a handheld bidet and a fixed bidet. A handheld bidet which has a flexible hose and is a handy bidet spray that can be easily installed on the side of the toilet, and is perfect for a quick spray, and rinse. The fixed bidet cannot be moved and is usually installed inside the toilet bowl.
If you just need a bidet shower after going to the toilet, a toilet bidet will be sufficient for you. Both handheld and fixed can be selected according to your personal requirements, and needs. If you prefer to have many different functions, then you can upgrade to an intelligent toilet which is your best choice, if your budget allows.
