I've never actually seen a minishower IRL, but from what I understand, it's just a sprayer that's hooked up to the toilet's water line right?<br><br>
Couldn't I just install a "Y" pipe and buy a $10 kitchen sink sprayer? Or is there something about a minishower that's unique?

You know what I just found in lieu of a minishower for my dad's house?? This sprayer thing that just attaches to your bathroom sink faucet. It cost $4.99 at my local hardware store. Score!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

My dh installed an extra sprayer we had from a new faucet we bought, and installed a T in our line for under $5 and less than 5 minutes. We adjust the water pressure on the line. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Whatever piece will allow you to hook up both the toilet and the sprayer to the line will work. Dh installed ours, but I could have easily done it. That's how easy it is. And poop, watch out buddy! This spray is STRONG!!!!!

Ok, I think I'm just going to get what I need from Home Depot and have dh put it all together.<br><br>
Although he was worried the spray might be too strong! He has visions of poop-water splashing back into his face! :LOL<br><br>
Thanks for all your replies!
