Will this help with UTI?

Yes, using a bidet regularly can help prevent urinary tract infections by flushing out the bacteria that would normally remain. The fresh, clean feeling after using a bidet also has the added benefit of encouraging better health.

Will my Bio Bidet work with a seat riser?

No, electronic bidets will not function with anything on top of the seat other than a person. Due to the digital safety sensor, direct contact must be made between the seat and the user. Also, with 3-4 inches added on top of the bidet, the user will not be able to feel the maximum potential of the water stream. If you need a higher toilet, we suggest using the type that raises the toilet from the base instead of adding anything to the top. Raising the toilet from the base will not affect the bidet’s functionality in any way.
