So, this is what I found after opening up the package and surveying all before me. Pretty straight-forward, although the package's touting that one didn't need tools to install it was, um, dead wrong. No tools, my butt.
If you ever find yourself installing a diaper sprayer, here are a few tips:
- Clean your toilet first. Big time. This is for your own comfort since, depending on the space you're working in, you may be getting quite intimate with your potty. I know I did. Plus, it's easier to admire your handiwork when you're done if it's all clean.
- Follow the directions, but use your instinct. They were pretty simple but there was half a page that I zoned out over and ended up skipping. Forge ahead as did our forefathers and you'll be fine.
- Flush when done. The hose area you use to connect everything may make a weird hissing noise. I started to get nervous and thought, "Aw, hellz no. There's no way we can sleep listening to that all night." Nerve-inducing, I'd say. But after a flush or two, the noise went away and I sighed a breath of, well, success. Y'know, the "woohoo, I did it, go me, I'd happy dance if it wouldn't wake the baby" type of moment.
So, here's my trophy. Int she purdy?? I'd like to thank my stepfather (who's a plumber) for the years of observation on the workings of the ol' john and the confidence from it, and, of course, the little man for the super long nap.
Now gimme one of those nasty 3-times-a-day blowouts you're so know for! (What can I say? He's teething.)
