Sometimes what you really want to round out a perfect day of hiking or surfing is a good hot shower. The HelioTM Pressure Shower comes in a small, neatly nested kit, weighs less than a liter of water, and provides 5 to 7 minutes of steady and satisfying water pressure. Unlike conventional gravity-fed, hanging shower systems, the HelioTMsystem uses an 11 liter welded fabric water tank pressurized by a foot pump. To use the system, you simply fill up the water tank, let it warm in the sun, set the tank on the ground, then step on the foot pump a few times. Pumping occasionally while showering maintains the water pressure. HelioTM is ideal for showering or cleaning dishes in camp, rinsing off after surfing or canyoneering, or general hygiene and cleanliness on any extended stay in the backcountry.
Unlike gravity fed camp showers that need to be hung overhead and produce dismal water pressure, HelioTM rests on the ground and delivers the pressure you need to wash hair, do the dishes, or rinse off gear…or water your plants, or wash the dog.
System components include an 11 liter portable tank, a 7 foot neoprene hose with spray nozzle,pump, and ventilated carrying case. Components stow neatly in a rugged, ventilated carrying case
Easy-to-use foot pump can’t over-inflate and provides constant water pressure
The safety strap over the fill port prevents the tank from accidental opening during operation and provides an easy way to transport the tank when filled
