I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.
I wish I had one of these during my last flare! I think it would have saved me a lot of discomfort.
I was a bit intimidated when I received the box, I am no plumbing expert and wasn’t sure I would be able to install in myself. Luckily my fiance and I (mostly him) were able to get it put in and installed within about 20 minutes. It did leak a bit at the back where the tubing is attached but we fixed that with some plumbers tape and haven’t had any problems.
As for the actual use, it’s definitely different from what I’m used to, but I don’t hate it. I still used toilet paper, mostly to try off but also to make sure there wasn’t anything left behind. It is super easy to use and the self cleaning part is great. We have really hard water so it will be interesting to see if it holds up, so far so good. I’ve had it installed for about a month and a half now and have had no issues. It doesn’t take up a lot of space. I’m not currently flaring (!), but I think that if I were it would get a lot more usage to save my bum from that dreadful burn. The box talks about some of the benefits and I think they’re all true!
