These sprayers add more water to the holding tank, if its used to spray down the toilet bowl to remove solids that does not rise by its self. A hand held spay bottle is far more effective, more direct steam force for solids removal. And some times the sprayer does not shut off at the handle, after its been used, next time when you use the toilet, YOUR KNEE/FRONT will get wet, when you flush, I know cause it has happened to me. So I don't use mine any more.

Boy did I make a mistake for starting this thread! LOL. Thanks for all of the input from the guys with good suggestions & the humor from the others! A spray bottle or a pitcher of water are alternatives to a sprayer. However, since my comments are in the toilet, (rather than the gutter), I'll explain further. The sprayer comes in very handy when you are flushing the toilet & a piece of toilet paper or you know what is hung up. By grabbing the sprayer I can flush the offending stuff down the drain without risking getting something caught in the rubber seal in the toilet. My thought is that this might prevent something from causing the seal to eventually leak. The sprayer is right there so I can take care of things while the toilet is still flushing. I think this actually saves water rather than waiting for the water from the rim to eventually flush the paper down the drain. As far as those of you who think I'm referring to a bidet, sorry. I'm not cultured enough to use a bidet. I can barely spell it. I've had 3 fivers & this is the first one with a sprayer & I will never have a fiver without one. Thanks again to those trying to help my neigbor who wants to install a sprayer on his toilet. I think Home Depot is the way to go. However, keep those witty comments coming!
Well, this has been fun but needs to go out of 5th wheels to Gen'l RVing Issues.

My next door neighbor in the rv park saw the sprayer we have for our toilet & wants to add one to his toilet. Has anyone done this & is there an universal kit?
We have one in our Komfort and, for rinsing the bowl, a pitcher of water works much better, since there's very little water pressure. Using as a bidet sprayer would be 1) awkward, 2) cold, 3) not real sanitary, IMO. Had it about 2x the pressure, it would be helpful in cleaning the bowl, especially near the seal, but then it might spray all over the place, too. That's one reason we keep a toilet brush right next to the stool. :-)
Same water pressure at toilet as there is at sinks, shower etc. as it is the same water system. If you have low pressure at toilet and/or sprayer then water module is plugging or sprayer head is plugged.
Or if you have low water pressure thru-out rig......'city water' inlet screen plugging or water source pressure low.
My toilet sprayer has same flow & pressure as sinks/shower and works very well for cleaning toilet bowl/seal/blade an drop tube.
We don't have much pressure anywhere, whether on city water or pump. One of my complaints, but we boondock more than CG camp, so it helps with rationing. :-)

I have a Thetford and it had the barb at the back to add their sprayer. I have PEX tubing. I cut the water line going to the toilet and added a Flair-it tee, piece of PEX, Flair-it elbow, more Pex, Flair-it valve, more pex, Flair-it x male pipe thd adapter elbow. Then a pipe thd valve, a pipe thd x hose barb fitting then a sink sprayer. I turn both valves open then throttle the first to adjust the flow based on incomming pressure (pump vs city water connection) to aleviate any back splash. Then I use the second valve as a shut off in case the sprayer lever fails. Works great and don't have to pull the flush handle on the toilet to use the sprayer. Been working fine for 5 years.
When we did our "Inside Make-Over", we also put in a new toilet. The old toilet had a sprayer. We didn't like the looks of it hanging on the wall. So when I installed the new toilet, I removed the sprayer and wall bracket. If all you want to do is remove something stuck inside the toilet bowl, a "Sqirt Bottle" works just as well, if not even better, and doesn't waste so much water as a sprayer does. We now just use a small Bottle Sprayer, that has a very powerful stream to it, and will remove anything stuck inside a toilet bowl. We put HD Velcro on the "Spray Bottle" and on the side of the tiolet. We have it placed on the side of the toilet that makes it easy to get to, but almost completely out of sight. The bathroom looks so much better now with out the Sprayer on the Wall, plus we save a lot more water using a "Squirt Bottle". We have just used "Squite Bottles", with every RV we have ever owned. Its cheap, and it works perfectly, using very little water. Works great as we moslty do all Boondocking, and anything that saves water is a good thing. Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill
I did it. I have an Aquamagic IV in my trailer with a hand flush. There is a barbed fitting sticking down in the back of the toilet opposite from the hand valve. I bought the kitchen sprayer from home depot and a hose clamp. I snipped off the end of the toilet fitting and cut the threaded end off the sprayer hose. 5 minutes later and I had a toilet sprayer.
You do have to open the hand valve to provide pressure to the sprayer. I just leave the sprayer hanging over the bathtub side when not in use.
