First, yes, there is some installation required, and yes, the instructions aren't that great. They don't mention needing a flexible toilet supply valve (search for them here or local hardware stores, if you need to buy one), but you absolutely do. The installation is relatively easy, just MAKE SURE YOU TURN THE WATER OFF TO THE HOUSE! You really need no plumbing skills to install this.
The pressure from the sprayer is pretty powerful, but only if the valve is all the way open; you can totally slow the water flow. At full blast, it makes pretty short work of #2, but if there are scrunchy elastic leg holes you might have to stretch them out to really get in there. At full force, you can end up spraying poopy water around your bathroom, but a little practice should get you where you need to be. You'll still probably have some cleaning to do once in a while, but hey, that's the nature of the beast when it comes to cloth diapers.
I've read some complaints about the plastic parts, but your shower head is mostly plastic as well, and we haven't had any problems.
The hose has a good reach, longer than you probably need.
It works well on all the brands of diaper we've used, and the only inconvenience is that on diapers with pockets, the pockets can fill up a bit with the grimey water, so be careful when taking them away from the toilet.
