Well I finally landed back in the US and have picked up a new digital camera. I had made mention that I would like to do a weekly EDU thread so I'm going to start that now. This first week will be an enema kit. I'm going to try and stick to a format so everything below the ________ will be what you see weekly. I'm open to comments, suggestions, and criticism in fact I encourage them Difficulty will always be ranked out of 5 *'s Pictures are uploaded, if anyone is having problems let me know, they work on my end. ___________________ !!WARNING!! As will be the case with all my EDU/DIY's this is not the ONLY way to build something. I encourage exploration and in some cases you will need to use you're own judgement on what parts to get. I am merely providing ideas for items. !!!! What - Enema Kit Total Cost - 20-40$ Time to Build - 30-45minutes Difficulty - * So I had lost my old enema kit and wanted to get a new one. I am kind of a cheap bastard and don't like buying sets if I can make something myself. So after a day of moving I hit up the local store for some food supplies, already being out I decided to get the stuff to make a new enema kit. If you buy one of these in a store it’s going to cost a min. 50$ to get a GOOD kit, but you’re probably gonna have shitty tips. So now you’re looking at another 15 for tips, and another 50 for a nice plug tip if you want to do retention. By building the kit yourself you can save some money and get the DIY satisfaction. The cost can range though, tips can be anywhere from 5 to 15 dollars for hard plastic tips and if you want a nice plug tip you’ll need to spend even more. But over all the cost is still less than buying the kit out right. To make a kit from scratch you will need some of the following (+/- a few things ) Supplies I would have substituted scissors for the knife but 90% of my crap was still in boxes soooooo We'll start with the every day components. You can most of the stuff at a local hardware store and local mega mart (walmart, target, etc). I couldn't get pictures in walmart (where I purchased the bladder) as the workers there are assholes. However I did get several of Lowes, so lets assume for the moment you go to Lowes to pick up your supplies. You'd be looking for the plumbing aisle and you'd want to be specfically in an aisle that looks like this: Aisle Placard Aisle Part 1 Aisle Part 2 If you are lucky, your store will have displays of the item so you can see what you are purchasing. In particular all the hardware components looked like this on the aisle. Tip: Take the tip with you. It will do a lot of good to size them in the store and most hardware employees will be completely clueless as to what it is, unless of course it’s butt plug or penis shaped Hose (Under the displays) Plastic Valve Threaded - Barbed copper My hose and fitting selections. Threaded - Barbed plastic this part was fairly expensive for this build and I didn't pay attention, it's 6$ vs. about 2-3 for copper. Barbed - Threaded copper (inner thread) Barbed - Threaded copper (outer thread) Barbed - Threaded copper (outer thread) Note you don't need ALL of this, I'm just giving examples of what to look for. For everything you purchase in copper it can also be purchased in plastic, however it is much more expensive. Now that you know what you need we can move on to the actual build. The only thing you will need to purchase at a porn store or you can purchase these online is tips. There are several different style of tips out there. My tips are barbed, but you can also find threaded tips. Almost every porn store I’ve been to I’ve seen some watersports tips in them. The style I’ve found are usually threaded. Depending on your tip is what hardware you will need. I think threaded are slightly easier to build, but none the less mine are barbed. First you’re going to start with a tip from your kit. First I began by cutting a small section of my ¾ inch OD tubing. I cut about 3 inches worth. And attached my first threaded – barbed attachment. This one had a 3/8 inch barb and a ¼ inch outer thread. Plug Tip Tube cut Plug+Hose+Adapter Next I added the ¼ internal threaded piece (to ¼ barb) to the previous adapter. This turns the hose from a ¾ inch OD tube into a ½ OD tube. Next I cut a length of ½ OD tube, this would be my section of kit from tip to valve. I then fit the tube onto the ¼ barb (Tube is ½ OD, ¼ Inner Diameter). Plus ¼ barb adapter Close up tube selection All together After that is pieced together you’re going to take the valve and connect one end of the valve to the Tip half. The other end of the valve will be the rest of your ½ OD tube. This can be whatever you like, I made my fairly long as it will be hanging from my shower rod mostly, but I have left over tubing so I can also make it shorter. Valve 1 Valve 2 Connected Now we move on to the bladder. I picked this particular bladder up from walmart, it is a backpack hydration system, it cost around 9.96 iirc. It is designed with a removable thread at the base so that you can thoroughly clean the bladder. For me it worked perfect that my plastic thread-barb adapter fit in it perfectly. The plastic piece is a ¼ inch thread, it fit perfectly into the hole of the bladder. Next just connect the free end of the hose (bladder side now, not the tip side) to the thread. That’s it, you’ve finished an enema kit. Depending on your attachments you may be able to make it removable and exchange the tips, if not it’s fairly easy to make a tip attachment for each kind you have. Bladder Barb Barb + tube And here is the finished product and the finished cost (just the Lowes recipt) All finished. Plug Tip As far as “Is it safe to use copper,” well I can say that we’ve used our old kit fairly extensively and while you will need to eventually replace the copper if it’s looking bad, no it’s not going to do any damage. It takes a fairly large dose of copper to induce copper poisoning, but if you plan on using a kit everyday or fairly often I would recommend spending a bit more money on a DIY kit and going all plastics or even look into medical grade equipment. Otherwise I would recommend a professional kit (I have found a few SUPER NICE kits in the 120$ range with mediocre tips).
