It’s easy to charge and was easy to use. We rigged it up to a popup shower enclosure and stuck the draw tube into a plastic jug we filled with heated water, and made a really acceptable camping shower. It’s not a rival for a plumbed shower but a big improvement in pressure over a gravity fed option AND you don’t have to lift the water source above your head
I attached a longer hose to both ends for my beach van conversion. Runs great and it takes a lot longer to run out of water than I thought. Attached to 16 gallon tank. Haven’t had any trouble with the battery.
This shower head works great, lasts for a good period of time and lots of pressure.
These battery-powered showers are nothing new, but totally worth investing in. I had my first one six years ago and still have it. They are not only innovative, but very practical to have on hand. If you don’t have access to electricity or running water, this shower set can be set up in minutes. The only thing you’ll need, aside from a fully charged shower, is a bucket of water. If all else fails, running water from a stream or river will do.
I can draw water from the bucket or any other body of water, but mind you, it probably will be rather cold. The other recommendation, which accompanied my other shower, was that you only use it with water that’s within the 50° F to 122° F range for obvious reasons. I’ve used these showers to hose myself down in many circumstances. They can be used when camping or, if need be, when there’s no access to inside running water. Fortunately, I haven’t had to use it in an emergency.
Back to the portable shower and set up. Assembly is quick and easy, but not all that intuitive because I ran into some little glitches. Using the visual on the front of the instruction manual is the most helpful. I made sure I added those little rubber washers to the outlet pipes, if that’s what you call them. I added a few photographs to help with set up. Look closely to see where everything is set up. For example, if you don’t have the proper hose in the pump, the inflow of water will knock it right off the unit.
Make sure there’s plenty of water in your bucket before starting in order to get a good flow. The hose is a bit stiff and the coil tilts the outlet pipe upwards. This pipe does have small enough holes to filter out larger bits of debris like pine needles or dirt that can get into the bucket. Now, the flow isn’t a pummeling one, but have been able to shower up, shampoo my hair, and rinse off. It’s also good to simply rinse after heading to the beach.
What I do is take along a 10000mAh battery pack for power as this will fully charge up the pump twice. The pump is 4400mAh and can be charged from the bottom. The port is covered with a silicone cap. This unit can be charged from one’s car, at home via a laptop, or computer. My choice is to use a battery pack as it’s more portable and simpler. I can also use the remaining power in the pack to charge up other small items. This unit is an improvement over my other one with more power. Definitely a shower to have on hand for camping or those unexpected emergencies.
This is a great product! I've used it for multiple purposes, I used it to water my plants that my regular hose won't reach, I've used it for camping, I can use it for emergency situations, and I'm sure you can use it for any dogs that you want to wash them outside. It's not too heavy but obviously if you're carrying a full bucket of water for long periods of time, it will get heavy. But the hose and base itself is pretty light. It's easy to store, it comes in a nice box that I just pack it back up in the box and store it. The battery lasts pretty long and it holds the charge fairly well. I'm not sure about the exact amount of time because I haven't tested it that throughly. It's pretty easy to put together although it does take some time and common sense to put it together but after that it's easy to take apart and put back together. Overall, I'm very happy with this product and would recommend to others!
