Has anybody tried the Afex system for incontinence?  It's priced at $80, and allows the user to pay the water bill the normal way or directly in the device, here's a link:

Viperguy,

I tried this system with some limited success; however, I went back to pads, etc. I purchased both "reservoirs" finding that the one advertised as being for activities, ie golf, yard work, etc. was better for me. I used the system for about 3 months. I would take a pad, cut a slit in the middle and stick the reservoir through the pad to where it connected into the collection bag to catch the occasional spill or leakage. While that was an inconvenience, I still preferred doing that as opposed to experiencing a leakage. (I realize that is going to the extreme.) After about 3 months, the connection, twist grip, between the reservoir and the collection bag went bad. At that point, I just went back to the old diapers and pads routine. I was already scheduled for an AUS implant, so it only for another couple of months. All in all, I can not whole-heartedly recommend it.
