So, I was nervous reading reviews and being new to cloth diapering that the sprayer would not be powerful enough to get all the poop and such off the diaper. Well, to my delight, I was totally wrong! This sprayer has some POWER to it. My husband joked that he can't imagine how people could use it as a bidet, b/c the water pressure is enough to where it probably wouldn't feel so great for that use. It was easy enough to install, although it did lack detailed installation instructions. The directions were extremely basic and were written on the outside of the box, but there really wasn't much to that installation. So, if you don't have someone around is at least somewhat handy person, you might want to recruit one -- it's well worth it. It took all of 5 minutes to install. Just check your connection on your toilet to make sure it's the right one, before you purchase it (a metal one, rather than plastic). I saw some reviews where their toilet didn't have the correct connector. However, I have also read the connector is easy to change out/update for the "right" one at the local hardware store, that will work with the sprayer connection. Someone more hardware savvy than myself would know all about that, and again, this isn't rocket science--it's just replacing one connection with another to suit your needs. I would recommend this sprayer to ANYONE in cloth diapering. So much cheaper than some of the other bigger name brand sprayers out there -- and overall seems to have way better reviews than any of them, too. So glad I went with this one!
At first I was happy to purchase a sprayer at such a bargain price. I paid about $35 compared to the name brand ones that sell for $50-70. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. The installation was easy, and the sprayer pretty much did what it was meant to do, which is probably why there are so many positive reviews. After two or three months of light use, the sprayer started sticking on. I had to pull the button outward to get it to stop. That worked for a few weeks, but now it keeps spraying regardless of whether it is stuck in the pressed position or not. It leaks really bad too. When you have a toilet full of poopy water, a sopping wet diaper in one hand, a sprayer stuck in full-pressure spray mode in the other, and a toddler desperately trying to dump mega blocks in the toilet, it kind of leaves you in a s***ty position. I probably should have just coughed up the extra money to begin with and gotten something I didn't have to replace. Another issue is that the hose material is not very flexible, so it's awkward and difficult to point in the right direction, and it never stays in place when I hang it back up. My 12-month-old is also obsessed with sucking on it, so now that I already need to buy a new one, I'm going to buy a nice one made in the U.S. that is certified lead free. If you are going to buy this, at least wait until baby is on solids so that if it starts to malfunction you might still have time to return it.
My husband and I have twin boys who are now 10 months old. We started cloth diapering them when they were about 2 mos. old, and we've been using this bidet to rinse out the dirty diapers before throwing them in the laundry. Mind you, we're only using it with the dirty ones, not the wet ones, so with 2 boys, we're probably using this product 2-3 times a day on average.
It worked great for the first 3-4 months, but since then it's been leaking. It started with the trigger sticking in the "on" position so that I'd have to manually pull it out to turn the sprayer off. If I didn't get it all the way back (which is not an easy thing to do, especially when it's wet and especially when you're trying to corral 2 little boys!), it would leak out the sprayer part. In the last month or two, it's also started leaking from the hose where the sprayer part attaches.
DO NOT buy this product ... unless, of course, you want to buy another bidet in a few months like we're going to have to do. :(
We bought this for cleaning home-made re-usable diapers. Water pressure is great. It's easy to use. And, frankly, we just like the product. We have had it for about 4-5 months. However, starting about a month or so ago, the lever starts to stick...thereby making it impossible to shut the water off. I'm not the only reviewer to say this. I think I can probably find a way to fit something really thin into the handle to force it to turn off. But, I don't want to have to buy something to make this product work. I've got to find out if there's still an applicable warranty, but I can't seem to find info on that. We threw away the wrapping, etc. So, I'll post again if I find something useful.
We bought this as a cheaper alternative to the many expensive diaper sprayers, and so far it has worked very well for this purpose. The directions for setup were minimal; it required common sense, but it has not leaked or lost pressure since then. It pounds the stain out of my cloth diapers, rinses poop off the child (who finds this chilly but apparently hilarious), and is useful for cleaning the toilet as well. We've been using it for about a month at this point. My only other caveat would be that the pressure is so high that contaminated water will end up outside the bowl unless you depress the button only partially, which is hard to do.
This sprayer was such a pain in the neck to install. My poor husband tried and he couldn't get it, so my father-in-law had to come do it. He said we were missing a piece and that we must have been sold a used product. After a trip to the store, we finally got it installed. It worked great for the first few weeks, but then it started leaking so badly I had to put a huge Tupperware container under the connection, and now, I have to empty it every time I spray off a diaper. I had to put duct tape over the connection where the sprayer meets the hose, because that was leaking like mad, and water still manages to make its way through the tape.
