This diaper sprayer seemed relatively easy to hook up (although I just watched) and no plumber is necessary. You can adjust the pressure of the water stream and cut the tubing down to your desired length. The device itself works well and seems well made, however, the sprayer holder isn’t the best. I chose to hang it on my tank, which is less stable, but it’s not as easy to hang as I would like (since I usually need to do this one-handed).
To be honest I don’t use this diaper sprayer all that often since it gets the diapers so wet when I spray them. I can see how this is MUCH better than the old-school diaper “dunking”, but it is rare that I need to use this. Newborn, breastfed stools are water-soluble so you wouldn’t need it at that stage and now that my daughter is 10-months old the stools usually plop off pretty easily in the toilet. The sprayer is good for transition stools (4-8 months depending when you start solids) and softer stools.
So I could definitely live without a diaper sprayer, but they are convenient to have around. I look forward to using it to wash out my daughter’s potty during potty training and have a feeling it will get a lot of use at that time.
Diaper sprayers can also be used as a bidet would, or for postpartum or menstrual hygiene.
I would rate this an 8. a 5. IT STARTED LEAKING!
