Water in Toilets

Hi All,

I just realized that a very handy tag would be to extend the toilet tag so that one knows what the cleaning options are. Off the top of my head the options can be:
none - for no water
shower - for hand held ones
combined - for integrated japanese style
bucket - self explanatory

But what to use for tags? toilet:wash?

Thoughts?

Best Regards
Mishari

Re: Water in Toilets

toilets:wash=* seems appropriate.

IMHO, the "integrated Japanese style" might as well be toilets:wash=washlet tag, per Wikipedia.

Again, Wikipedia suggests bidet (saved everyone a click: taps with a small sink) is slightly different than the usual bidet shower. I guess fancier toilet amenities might offer these kind of bidets (with sinks) rather than the usual bidet showers.

But then again, toilets:wash=shower gets the job done. For those special ones, might be toilets:wash=bidet.

Buckets? I reckon cistern (toilets:wash=cistern) might better fit the description for something like this. In short:

  • toilets:wash=cistern (with a water container)

  • toilets:wash=shower (the usual, ordinary cleaning option)

  • toilets:wash=bidet (for special sinks)

  • toilets:wash=washlet (Japanese-style)

Re: Water in Toilets

Clarifying: I use the tag toilets:handwashing=yes/no to indicate a sink with faucet(s) where one can wash hands but I assume you're talking about the spray hose for, in Wikipedia's words, "genital and anal cleansing", right?

I don't believe those small spray attachments found in most Thai toilets should be tagged the same as an actual bidet. It's not a big deal to me either way.

You might gain some insights into a tagging scheme on the Tagging mailing list. (You might also end up with many opposing viewpoints and no clear conclusion.)

Cheers,
Dave

Actually, that's what we're discussing.

Re: Water in Toilets

As already mebtioned, the base key should be toilets.

I personally never saw a bidet in any toilet accessible to the public.

What I frequently saw is what I guess was called in this thread Japanese style. Foe clarification here is a Wikipedia link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_bidet
