    Thai Bum Guns, The Builders Nightmare

    Now the Thai bum guns are great things when they actually work and a much better idea than smearing poo up and down your crack with tissue paper, probably helps people stop getting piles as well, have to question sbk on his toilet habits but he sounds like a poo smearer.

    Anyway I actually forgot my golden rule in never getting involved in buying or supplying bum guns, the reason for this is that most of them are shite, ie they don't work or they leak, so whats a reasonable price for fitting a bum gun? It is just two drill holes and connecting up the pipe, lets say 200baht, now that don't sound too bad for the builder for half an hours work does it, so lets have a look at todays bum gun installation.

    Off we went to the homemart to buy all the bathroom fittings, ok there was towel rails and things, probably took a couple of hours and say 100baht in petrol, not too bad though as we charge for fitting each item so it's looking good, quite a few items to fit, we find suprisingly that the bum gun is foked, normally the worse that happens is they just leak, but this one the nut that connects to the pipe was completely broken off, so lets say if things worked out perfectly I would have made say 150baht for fitting the bum sprayer, but now of course I have to take it back to the shop and get it replaced, more time, more petrol, etc, I am on a loser straight a way, so off I toddle back to homemart and we start going through their stock, the first 4 bum sprays of the same make were broke before the box was even opened, yep looking through the back of the packet you could see that the nut was not connected, obviously homemarts staff were quite happy if I took one of these, but another broken one wouldn't sort out my problem, ie the customer wants a bum gun that works, eventually they gave me one that looks like it might work, yes that was another hour in there and another load of petrol, the moral of the story is if you are a builder or contractor tell the customer to fit his own poxy bum spray....

    When I was installing bathrooms back in the UK,we gave up supplying sanitaryware and brassware because of all the problems. No matter how much we paid for stuff, there would always be something wrong with it, and because we supplied it , we had to sort out. We ended up telling the customers to get their own stuff and we would fit it. That way, if there was a problem, they had to sort it. Ahhhh Plumbing........Happy days.......Not!
    Do not walk beside me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me for I may not follow. Just pretty much leave me the fuck alone!

    Buy a quality bum gun then, I got 3 for current house, think they were around 1k each, solid, heavy and no leaks, no faults and look classy to boot.

    The original bum guns we have here are nice metal ones. I've replaced two of the poxy things so far with cheap plastic ones, and they seem to be more reliable.

    Lot's of junk low quality sanitary fixtures on the market. If I was a builder, I would find a brand with good QC and reliability and tell the customer if he wants me to install he must use a certain brand/s. Otherwise he's on his own.

    pretty good, was able to replace the service tabs, despite a few problems,

    also had to replace the toilet gun with a nice expensive one,

    I have been shopping for toilet units for weeks now, still not sure what I want. I quite like the Cotto Serenade, but the Namh Orbit is quite elegant too,

    difficult choices

    When I moved back to Melbourne, first thing I did was install a gun, two problems, water temperature and water pressure. The cold water froze my ring piece solid and the high pressure just about blew it into the next suburb.

    shoulda bought one of those Japanese contraptions. The electronic seat with automatic bum pleaser. Those things actually warm up the water before allowing the gentle sprinkles to softly caress your hallowed ring piece

    I think you can do the same with the sprayer attachments from standard faucet hookups...
