The height you hang your enema bucket or enema bag determines how fast the flow will be through your tubing.
The higher the height, the greater the flow. The lower the height, the slower the flow of enema solution.
We recommend placing or hanging your enema bucket or enema bag no more than 18 inches above your buttocks.
Placing an enema bucket on the toilet seat is a good height if you are lying on the bathroom floor while doing the enema.
How Fast Should The Enema Water or Enema Coffee Flow?
If you are doing a water enema, coffee enema, wheatgrass or essential oil enema, you do not want the flow to be fast and powerful. Your body is not designed for that.
You want a gentle flow which is enough to get the solution into your body, but not so much that your body will want to push it right out.
For coffee enemas your body needs to adjust to this "caffeine" going into the colon. So the slower the better.
Make sure the flow is enough to get the solution in. If the bucket or bag is too low, and the flow is too weak, then you might not get any in at all.
Reason For Not Being Able To Hold The Coffee Enema In
One reason you may not be able to hold your coffee enema in the entire 15 minutes required or hoped for, is because you put the solution in too fast. We dont know exactly why, but it seems when the solution goes into your body too fast, it just makes it harder to hold it in for 15 minutes.
A Different Enema Tubing Clamp Can Help Adjust The Flow
There are 2 types of enema tubing or enema hose clamps.
1) The Traditional Clinch Clamp
This clamp can either be opened or shut. There is no way to really adjust the flow.
2) The Enema Tubing Roller Clamp
The Enema Tubing Roller Clamp can be rolled with your thumb so that the pressure on the tubing can change, thereby allowing you to have a very open flow, or a lesser flow. You control the flow.
With this type of clamp you can hang or set your enema bucket at any height, because you can control the flow using the roller clamp on the enema tubing.
This type of clamp only works with silicone enema tubing. Not plastic or vinyl types.
