I finally decided to install the product after having in storage for 2 weeks. I was afraid it was going to be difficult. Having installed an on seat bidet in the past, I was reluctant to take the project on as I had found that tackling the toilet seat had been difficult. I was surprised on how easy it was to install. It took me 15 minutes, and most of those minutes were spent finding the plumber tape I had put away, a pipe wrench (which I really didn't need). There were diagrams in the package on the contents and the steps for installation. The wand holder slides inside the toilett top for easy access. The water pressure is adjustable on the valve which makes it gentle or hard water. Great product! and I am buying another for my other bathroom.

This hand held bidet helps you keep yourself clean when arthritis and bad balance combined with digestive troubles make it difficult to stay clean and comfortable. It's cold water so it's not the same as taking a sitz bath.But it's inexpensive and easily installed.
I am using only the hand sprayer and the sprayer holster toilet mount. The diameter of the T-valve with water pressure control is too narrow for my toilet plumbing. Consequently, it's unusable as far as I am concern, because I don't want to add additional adapters. That would make the setup too complicated. The metal spiral hose looks very weak and of poor quality. There is no way I would connect that hose to the toilet plumbing. I certainly wish to avoid any risk of leaks. The sprayer holster toilet mount could be secured better if there was an additional bolt and nut to connected to the plastic holder that hangs from the toilet tank. Currently the plastic hook connects to the holster with ONE bolt/nut set only. However, it still does the job, so no big deal. I really like the hand sprayer. I like that I can lock it on the ON position without having to hold down the ON/OFF button. However, it's my opinion that the ON/OFF mechanism should be reversed. Currently to shut off the water flow one has to push the ON/OFF button UP with the index finger while reaching down with your hand. I think that makes it more difficult. It would be easier to shut off the water flow pushing the ON/OFF button DOWN with the thumb finger. My advice to anyone who wants to buy this product is to buy ONLY the hand sprayer. I know that Overstock.com sells the hand sprayer by itself at a very reasonable price. The rest of the elements you can buy at your local hardware store. I think that would be the best option. Despite all the negatives, I find the hand sprayer very, very useful and I am very pleased with it. It has improved my hygiene routine tremendously. So, I'm a happy customer.
