Which diaper sprayer would you recommend? I am trying to get one for Christmas and I'm just not sure what is best. My sil recommended the bumgenius sprayer, but I have read reviews that say it can leak at the area where the button is. So, I thought I would come here and ask you so smart mamas what your favorite is.

TIA
Shelby

We have the BG sprayer and it's treated us well.

I have a minishower, and it's gotten to where when you turn on the lever, it comes on at almost full strength. It's still usable, but it's annoying.

I found how-to video for a DIY diaper sprayer the other day. DH is going to install one when we move in a few weeks. Can't wait!

Here's a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zpfj_SeG4ro

The bumGenius seems to be the most popular amongst all the people I know. Love the idea of a diaper sprayer as a Christmas present. Good for you.

We used the Minishower and it never leaked. It did seem to work on full blast very easily though. DH liked it a lot, probably more than I did. So it really helped him get into the cloth diapering spirit :-)

We have the BG diaper sprayer. It has alot of pressure behind it, and it specifically tells you to always turn the valve off when you are done using it. I would think that if anyone is having leakage problems it's because they fail to do that.
It has great pressure, but I have to turn the valve off before I let go of the sprayer button because it has SO much pressure that when I let go of the button it shakes our pipes in the wall.
Other than that one little concern it works great.

We love our BumGenius sprayer. But I've not tried any others to compare to.

We are also careful to remember to turn off the valve between uses.

I had the BG sprayer/minishower for 5 years and it was awful. But it is the most common so most people don't know there are options. We have The Diaper Sprayer now and it kicks all the others' butts. Plus it is $10 cheaper! Great warranty, too.

We have a Minishower and like it. DH tried to make one, but was having trouble so we returned all the parts and bought this one for the same price. He assembled it in 5 minutes or less. DH likes using it...and not just for diapers.

Our toilet and shower are right next to each other too. I did use the detachable shower head before I got my diaper sprayer and I find the diaper sprayer to be much easier to use and less messy.
