Rated 5 out of 5 by Yoti14 Awesome, just Awesome
I bought this with the idea that it would be nice little Luxury, for us while camping at the races this August. Well, man was I wrong. This unit is just spectacular. We had six people showering once a day for 4 days. 4 days of doing dishes twice a day,(2 wash tubs going at once). All of this was done on the initial charge of the battery, and one propane canister. Unreal!!!!! I love this heater and cannot wait to take it again. The On Demand water heater is a bit "plasticy", but if your careful it should last as long as you want. My only isssue was there is not a shut off for the shower head. You have to completely turn of the heater, which makes for some fun moments when you have soap in your eyes. LOL
I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a way to get some hot water while camping
Rated 5 out of 5 by moondog4042 VERY HELPFUL PRODUCT!
We are very very happy with our purchase of HOT WATER ON DEMAND by Coleman. We've been looking at them for some time and shopping around. Then all of a sudden (spur of the moment) we decided we needed it THAT week. We checked Bass Pro (who had in stock) but it was still less expensive for us to purchase from Walmart ONLINE and get delivered on the 1-2 day delivery, Great...thanks Walmart!~
Rated 2 out of 5 by camper12 Not for cooler climates
I purchased this product for camping. I saw it in action and thought it would be a great addition to my camping collection. Well, I deer hunt (tent camping) in the North Georgia mountains in November and December and this product failed miserably. The temperature knob broke (it was cold outside) when I tried to turn it to high heat. I could not use the unit again. I returned it to the store and exchanged it for a new one. The next time I used it, again it was cold outside, the same thing happened again! I was very frustrated and brought it back to the store again. This is a 3 season water heater. Do not rely on it if the temperature drops below 40 degrees. If you need a water heater in colder weather, I would recommend some other water hear (maybe Zodi) where you have no mechanical parts that can break.

The water heater does heat the water as advertised but the water pressure from the battery powered pump is very very low. I was very disappointed in the water pressure as I wanted to take a shower with the unit (as was mentioned in the ad). It will do what Coleman says it should do but I was not happy with the unit.
Rated 4 out of 5 by shotoshine I would buy it again
Had the product for a couple of months now, and have to say, It was worth every dime. nothing like a hot shower when the alternative is going without. Some of these reviews say it has weak pressure, but mine is not so bad, I'm 6'1 240 lbs, I can take a 20 minute shower, and its great. Not like home, but hey, better than a heating water over a stove. I have taken 3 showers, and washed dishes with one small propane bottle. I would recommend it to anyone.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ferretlaw Lovely hot water anywhere!
I agree that the water pressure doesn't match that of even a low-budget hotel, but hey...you're in the wilderness, right? Rinsing long hair with a bucket of warm water (faster than using the spray nozzle) works perfectly. On the plus side, this thing has worked over and over from horse shows to mountain peaks without a hitch. It is not a substitute for your trusty kettle as the highest setting is great for tea but not hot enough for making drip coffee. However, we set this up on the camp kitchen for easy dish & hand washing then move it over to the shower tent for endless hot water (connected to our big propane tank, there's plenty of hot, not scalding, water for four people to shower). It is an expensive luxury when a really big constantly warmed teakettle would do the same job, but this was a Christmas-present convenience I now wouldn't want to be without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Effects Coleman Hot Water On Demand
Coleman's HWOD is a can't-do-without product for camping fun. As advertised, it gives you HOT water when and where you need it with NO WAITING. Cleanup was never so easy with this portable water heater that provides gallons of hot water on one small bottle of gas. Love it!
Rated 4 out of 5 Hot Water On Demand
Product lives up to its name! It is big and heavy and I was a bit intimidated, but I followed the instructions for cleaning well before use and am amazed how really easy it is to use. I plan to use with a camping trailer and this will really help with dishes, bathing and hot drinks. Love it! No more waiting for the pot of water to heat.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Szenyka Excellent For warm outdoor shower
Along with a shower tent and accessories to hook the water heater up to a shower hose, this product was perfect for warm showers when our hot water heater went out. The only draw back was the accessory to hook our hose directly up to the heater. We could not get a good seal, but just a large bucket, hose, and product's pump fixed the problem.
Rated 5 out of 5 by happyfloridacamper great product
i used a friends and had to have my own. works great, easy to operate, great for camping & when kids play in the mud they can get a shower outside and not track in my house
Rated 5 out of 5 by trailerfanatic Met my expectations
I actually purchased this to use with my concession cart. It works great and heats the water to Health Dept. requirements. It's easy to use. We also take it camping and it is nice to have hot water to wash our dishes. I would highly recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by coldnorth great for the sportsman
We got this to use while cleaning pheasants outdoors as the water coming from the garden hose is too cold for cleaning birds. It worked great!! We did not have any problems with the unit at all.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PfHollies provides you with hot/cold or warm water
Does as it is advertised, wish the shower hose was longer so it could extend over our shower shelter
Rated 3 out of 5 by myklrex Hot Water On Demand
Bought this for camping - have only tested it once (it works) - will have to wait for spring to see if it holds up to normal use. That's the only reason it's rated at 3 stars across the board. Once I'm camping again, it'll get used one weekend/mo.
Rated 2 out of 5 by 2chee Eh.... Disappointed
Water tepid at best. Did not get hot as advertised (tested in 55 degree weather).
The set up was easy & the pump works well. Had to return it for the lack of hot water.
Rated 4 out of 5 by luck59 running hot water
Its like being at home in front of the sink.
I read a lot of reviews and found some you tube videos on this product before I bought it I have not used it in the field yet but the trail at home has me feeling good about my purchase
Rated 4 out of 5 by DetroitBoy Really Pleasant
To be able to take a hot shower while camping! My wife and I used on a trip this weekend. It took a few minutes to discover how to get a comfortable water temperature, but once done, it was great! Be prepared; 5 gallons of water go VERY quickly when showering!
Coleman products are generally very durable. Obviously we haven't used this long enough to comment, but it seems solid.
Rated 5 out of 5 by yh2497 Great product
This item works wonderful! It heat up really fast, i really enjoy having this product when i go camping. This shower is good part too.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mzsuzyq Works very well
I have used this water heater for the last two summers for our annual camping trip. It works very well. As the other review mentioned, the water pressure is not high, but what do you expect from a portable unit? It heats the water in seconds and we got around 14 showers out of one propane bottle and had propane left. The only suggestion I have is to charge the unit in your car every night whether the low battery light is on or not. The first year I only charged it when it said it needed it and until the green light came back on, but then it would run out of power in the middle of a shower. That did not happen this year charging it every night.
