3/31/2017 UPDATE: In speaking at length with the product developers at Nemo - they called me to get more information on how I used this product - we narrowed it down to how the unit was stored. I kept it in a sealed Pelican case where I also had two propane bottles. They believe, as do I, that latent gas in that sealed case compromised the material used at the junction of the tube and the cap. I've bought another despite the knock-off now available on Amazon. Nemo deserves my business for the lengths they went to take care of me and get to the bottom of their product's performance.
3/23/16 UPDATE: So disappointed to have this fail on our last trip to Moab. A galvanized junction in the tubing just aft of the pump split. It's been used a dozen times or so and has been in our kit for about a year. For the money, I expected this to be pretty bullet proof.
Upon further inspection it looks like the material is failing. The tube coming out of the foot pump to a pressure fitting has disintegrated, the one-way valve on the foot pump has separated from the housing, and the lid from the top has disintegrated. The plastic is failing.
I got in touch with the folks at Nemo and they're replacing the unit, so kudos for them for taking care of their clients.
To make the water warm as I like I purchased an induction cooktop: http://www.amazon.com/1800-Watt-Portable-Induction-Countertop-8100MC/dp/B0045QEPYM/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1445124848&sr=1-1&keywords=induction+cooktop
You will also want a funnel to pour the water from the cook top pot (which you will have to purchase separately from the induction cook top) through a standard size funnel to keep it from spilling.
To keep the HelioPressure Shower standing as you pour the water into it, I use a belt to wrap around the strip at the top and have the other side of the loop of the belt attached to a pipe that comes out of my wall.
Other ways this product could be improved include:
A clear strip going from the top to the bottom of the shower system so that you can see how much water is left.
Parts that easily detach/attach so that they can be replaced if they break.
Having the strip at the top be able to wobble or detach easier so that it does not obstruct the path of the water that needs to go in.
I also use this for washing dishes as I mentioned. It works good enough!
Edit: I would add one more feature to this: instead of having a small lid at the top there should be a large one (perhaps an inch less than the diameter at the top). That way one can clean out the inside easier to prevent mold (by reaching completely in with their arm and a washcloth).
The product was easy to use, the 7 foot hose length is sufficient, it seems to be of good quality and it was used probably 25 times in one week and held up beautifully. Would be great to park outside a tent to rinse off feet or in the camp kitchen to rinse off dishes.
- seems well made.
- good size, easy to store
- water pressure is very low. good enough to get things wet, but not enough pressure to wash down a dirty bike.. let alone dirty dishes. pumped it up as much as i could.
- the top cap is very tricky to put back on with a full tank. kind of stupid actually. you have to push down on the cap really hard to close it, which puts pressure on the tank spilling lots of water. very messy, very bad design. should be a screw cap.
- also the cap is very small. requires a funnel or small nozzle water spout to fill.
- too expensive.
I am really unhappy with this purchase, and currently trying to see if I can get my money back.
I even used it to start desensitizing my donkey to baths (no scary hoses on the ground, no loud noise from water) I'm not sure how I got by without this.
