I'm sure some people didn't even ask at all? since they're so easy to install? I know its still alterating the plumbing.
What about something like this instead? I think it would be a bit more fiddly than a proper diaper sprayer, but it should be less likely to offend the landlord.
They're super easy to install....and uninstall (and put the original bit back in place). I suppose you should look at your rental agreement, but because its not a permanent alteration to anything then it seems like it shouldn't be a big deal? Could you uninstall it when you have inspections? We used this one and had no problems at all (used 4years).
ETA: does he look at your toilet super carefully? Its pretty discrete.

I'm a happy dunknswisher with my diapers, but I don't see why a diaper sprayer would fall in the "need permission" category of your average rental agreement (though I agree to check for sure.) If you can't find anything in the agreement that makes you feel particularly strong about asking permission first, just don't.
I agree with above posters that since it is only a temporary attachment you probably won't have a problem.
I prefer the dunk and swish method myself. I keep a pair of rubber gloves by the toilet and IME find it to be way more effective than a sprayer. I used to use a sprayer but felt like if I didn't have the angle right I ended up spraying poop water everywhere.

I found the diaper sprayer useful. But you don't really need it. I don't think it's worth running a hose from another room. You can always just dunk in the toilet, or scrape off with a butter knife
I would definitely check your rental agreement and plumbing codes for the area. It turns out where we are, diaper sprayers are against code.
We use disposable liners and they work great. Just throw the pee ones in the garbage and the poop ones in the toiler and flush away. We also rinse in a muck sink before we do laundry to get any left overs.
Why do you think your diapers aren't getting cleaned? poop stains do not mean they're not clean
