I have one! I can't for the life of me remember where I bought it! I got it when pg with DS1...so about 3 years ago from an online store. I LOVE mine. I couldn't imagine cding without it...it makes dealing with poop diapers so much easier.
Oh...I had DH install it and it didn't seem to hard--(didn't take that long to install...)

Bought mine new from a mama on the TP.
(Gotta love the TP!) I use it for all kinds of things besides just spraying poopy diapers -- spraying the sink when DS gets a little crazy with the hand soap, spraying the diaper pails after I empty them into the washer, cleaning especially mess bums -- and my three-year-old loves to use it to help me "clean" the toilet. :LOL

I installed it myself. Easy peasy instructions are included -- it took about five minutes. Be sure to do it when little fingers are safely in bed, though.

I bought a sprayer from the plumbing/bathroom section of Walmart. It looks basically like the sprayer on your kitchen sink except it has a longer hose and hooks onto the shower head. It was very easy to install (just unscrew the shower head) and has a quick-disconnect if you want to use the shower. It cost about $17.

Here are directions for making one. My DH made it for me. It was under $20. I thought someone might want to try their own.

Supplies needed- you can get them at any hardware store-he bought them at Lowes.
3/8"x3/8"x3/8" tee
barb splicer
sink sprayer
hose clamps 2
toilet supply line

1. Shut off water at the valve behind the toilet
2. Remove supply line to toilet from the valve
3. Install 3/8"x3/8"x3/8" tee to valve (One end should be horizontal- the other two are up and down)
4. Take the removed supply line and install it to the tee-the top of the tee
5. Cut off large end of new toilet supply line
6. Insert the barb splicer (this will connect the toilet supply line and the sprayer)
7. Put hose clamp on the new toilet supply line
8. Cut off very end of the sink sprayer
9. Install on the other end of the barb splicer
10. Add all of this to the other end of the 3/8"x3/8"x3/8" tee-which is horizontal
11. You are finished. You can buy a hook to hang the sprayer on the wall. BTW- I just leave it in the tub.

I feelreally dumb posting this..but here goes anyway..

I bought a minishower a few months ago and never hooked it up. I've since lost the directions and have no idea how to hook it up.
DH is clueless as well when it comes to this kind of stuff. I tried emailing the mama I bought it from but got no response,can anyone please explain it to me?

One note about installing, though! The general concept is that you unscrew the water supply line at the toilet tank, lower it a couple inches, screw the Mini-Shower to the water supply line, and then screw the Mini-Shower to the toilet tank. This only works IF you have a flexible water supply line.

We had a rigid metal water supply line that wouldn't bend to make room for the Mini-Shower. I had to buy a whole new (flexible) water supply line and replace it when I installed the Mini-Shower. It wasn't a big deal. The new line was like $5 (and I only paid $17 for the Mini-Shower on the TP) and was easy to install. I did, however, have to have DH tighten everything when I was done b/c I'm too weak to tighten things tight enough to not get leaks. :LOL
