Diaper Sprayer Review, Giveaway, and Discount Code!


The number one question I get when I tell people I use cloth diapers is, "What do you do with the poop?" I can instantly see people envisioning me dunking the diapers into the toilet and swishing them around. I don't know about anyone else, but that idea certainly doesn't appeal to me. A diaper sprayer is a must have product if you decide to use cloth diapers. It makes the whole process simple. Diapersprayer.com was generous enough to send me a diaper sprayer to review.

Ease of Installation:
The diaper sprayer was surprisingly, very easy to install. I was a bit nervous about messing around with plumbing by myself, so I enlisted the help of my dad. We disassembled the original hose, drained out the water, and set to installing the sprayer. We did run into a minor snag, though, when we realized that the sprayer came with a 3/8" compression connection, and our toilet had a 1/2" connection. A quick trip to Home Depot remedied the situation easily. Diaper Sprayer's website states that 95% of homes won't need this piece, but I was one of the lucky ones who did, so it's a good idea to measure your connection before beginning. A reducer can also be purchased from the Diaper Sprayer website. Aside from the quick Home Depot run, we did not run into any other problems. An adjustable wrench was the only tool we needed. The sprayer holder was also easy to install to the wall. Only a screwdriver was needed for that part, although you certainly don't have to install the holder.

Pros:
- Makes cloth diapering extremely easy!
- Easy to install
- Takes some strength to hold the sprayer down, which would help prevent a baby or toddler making a mess with it.
- Very strong hose and connections. No leaks.
- Long hose. I could easily stretch the hose over to the tub if needed.
- Can double as a bidet.
- T-valve on the sprayer hose allows you to adjust the water pressure
- All sprayers are covered with a one year warranty
- Anti-microbial protection through Microban

Cons:
- It would be nice to have a movable or less permanent option for the holder.
- Can sometimes be difficult to hold the sprayer down with one hand. I end up having to try several times while juggling the diaper with the other hand.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!

Buy It!
The sprayers can be purchased directly through their website. The company is also offering a coupon code to all Family of the Cloth readers. Enter the code "JJ2010" for 10% off + free shipping!

Bathroomsprayers.com has the best selection of Diaper/Bidet Sprayers which are actually hand bidet sprayers meant to be used to clean yourself, not a diaper originally. Great way to save allot of money on toilet paper and help the environment. They even have some stainless steel models that come with a 5 year warranty = the best in the industry!

I would really like this diaper sprayer, because I haven't started using cloth diapers yet but fully intend to with our next child. Anything that will help get us started is great!
