    That is an interesting niche product and the price is good. Propane powered so you really could cram it into a small cabin. I must be to much of a nerd though as I compare this to a solar water heater panel system that wouldn't require propane tanks. Though assuredly the cost of water heated panels is MUCH more.

      Looks like a neat unit.

      I have had experience with camp showers in the past. Coleman used to offer a pump that ran off of 4 D cells and it provided pretty decent water pressure. You had to heat up your own water, but 4 gallons of water gave you a decent shower, even if you like to lollygag:D

      The last one I experienced was a Zodi (like these http://www.zodi.com/web-content/ ). Nicer setup, more user friendly.

      I have also seen one that you lay in some hot coals (like a coil) and it heats up your water that way, similar to how instant on ones work. I forget how it pumped water... but was a neat idea!

      Of course the one you listed is good for a cabin.

      Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
      beat you to death with it because it is empty.

        I have had experience with the residential gas powered tankless POU water heaters in europe, they are very effecient and I wanted to install them in my home but they were not available. A few years back I came across a guy at a horse camp that had salvaged one from somewhere and hooked it up on his flatbed with a 12V water pump a 50 gallon water drum and a propane tank. Lots of hot water! These residential units are on the market now but still an expensive inital investment.

          tankless

          I have a tankless water heater, I pump water from my rainbarrel through it & think it to be the best shower I've ever had.

            Here it is, this little unit went in my cabin shower shortley after this pic. Let me tell you, it is worth every penny I paid on it and the building of my shower.
