So while it can leak if you don't find a simple and easy work around, it is a great product and prevents you from having to "dunk" the diapers in the toilet!
Particularly for parents who are cloth-diapering and babies in the pre-solids stage, a diaper sprayer is a great alternative to sticking your hands in toilet water to get them rinsed off. And to answer those reviewers who claim this can't be used without making a poo-water mess all over the bathroom floor and toilet, I would argue that they likely haven't given themselves time to get the technique down. I had the same experience when I first started using it, but over the last few months I've become pretty adept at rarely getting any splashing outside the bowl (and small splashes when they do happen -- nothing to fret about). Also, be aware that the on/off spigot doesn't have to be pushed all the way over, which can help decrease the water pressure a bit and give you a little more control over the spray. Being able to quickly spray off dirty diapers has really gone a long way to helping me keep them from too much staining, and makes me feel much better about throwing them in my nice clean washer!
The first thing is the necessity of having a flexible line into the tank, which other reviewers have mentioned. It was an oversight in the directions, but it's not too tricky to solve -- just go to the hardware store and get a flexible line. No biggie.
Secondly, and the thing that bothers me the most, is the ease with which this becomes a very leaky little gadget. The directions clearly warn against leaving the spigot on after you're done spraying, because the pressure will build up in the tubing and damage it. So I'll give them credit for the warning, but really, we're human, and most of us are capable of forgetting little things like this once in a while.Read more ›
Otherwise this is a very well made and useful product.
Cons...its poorly constructed and cannot be easily repaired (when it inevitably breaks)
The problem with devices like this, is that they are designed to require proprietary replacement parts. But based on a relatively low cost, it isn't contacting the manufacturer. The valve on mine stopped working after 7 months. Fearing a leak when not around to stop it, I was hoping to repair it by making a quick trip the local home improvement store. I hit one roadblock after another trying to get parts to both thread AND seal. I could get one and not the other.
I am not a plumber, but have some common knowledge. I could not find a replacement valve stem. Nor could I find another compatible valve. This tells me that the manufacturer knew it would probably one day break, and that they didn't want me to be able to fix what I would otherwise have to replace, by buying a new sprayer. Another sale for them right? ...WRONG!
I am looking into making one from scratch, using quality parts. It will cost around the same amount and last until my baby again uses diapers but for seniors. If I can find a good parts list, I'll post it. I would not buy this product again even though I NEED a sprayer. I will sooner run a garden hose in the window. Bum Genius - Make a better product please....because I'm not sure which is crappier....my babies diapers, or your sprayer.

Works, but leaks profusely. The manual warned not to leave the water connected / on while it's not in use, because "all seals leak" eventually. Read morePublished 12 days ago by DB
