As people initially stayed home during 2020’s coronavirus outbreak, some household staples were stockpiled a bit more zealously than others. In addition to hand sanitizer and face masks, toilet paper became a coveted item as worry about a potential break in the supply chain led to hoarding. While the supply issues were short-lived, it caused many to begin considering alternatives, including one long-popular choice in Europe — the bidet.  

To answer the need for bidets in the U.S., Fluidmaster recently unveiled its Soft Spa 9500 Bidet — an electronic add-on to existing toilets. Designed to provide a more hygienic, clean and refreshing solution in the bathroom, the Soft Spa 9500 Bidet comes complete with water temperature and pressure controls, adjustable dryer speeds and an ergonomic temperature-controlled comfort seat. In addition, the electronic bidet features a sleek design that won’t shift while sitting.

“Adding electronic bidets to the toilet has been a growing trend in the U.S. market over the last few years as more people have transformed their bathrooms into a personal spa oasis,” says Corinne AndersonSchoepe, director, global brand, Fluidmaster. “COVID-19 and the recent toilet paper shortages fast-tracked our development of the Soft Spa 9500 as we responded to the widespread adoption of elevated personal hygiene standards.”

According to AndersonSchoepe, the Soft Spa 9500 Bidet serves as a healthier, more hygienic way of cleaning up in the bathroom. Front and rear cleaning cycles help remove more bacteria and prevent the spread of germs when compared to wiping with toilet paper. The result is a fresh, “just stepped out of the shower” clean feeling made possible by a premium, fully customizable experience. 

“We’ve leveraged our trusted leadership in the toilet repair industry to offer a premium, more hygienic solution that we believe is going to be a welcomed upgrade in the bathroom,” she says.

The Soft Spa 9500 Bidet includes automatic front and rear cleaning cycles with oscillation, water temperature and pressure controls; adjustable dryer speeds with temperature control; a sleek design with an ergonomic comfort bidet seat that won’t shift, featuring adjustable temperature control; electronic control via push button at bidet base or wireless remote; a deodorizer and push-button quick release for easy cleaning; and a night light and soft-close bidet seat lid for round-the-clock use. 949-728-2000;
