A must have!!!
We have had one of these in the past, we love it! When your in the middle of the woods with no power this is perfect. It doesn't have alot of pressure, but enough, to rinse off soap and rinse out your shampoo and conditioner. Plan ahead for your water source!!! We filled a medium sized tote and we were both able to take a shower. And it's warm not hot.

Dioes noit work as advertized
I finally got it a position to use this water heater/shower and was sorely disappointed. Everything worked on the unit but the water never got more than tepid at best. I realized that the water source I'm using is pretty cool but I couldn't tell the difference from the temp of the water source and the water coming out of the shower. The pressure was substantially lower than I'd hoped but I needed the shower and all I can say about it was it was quite invigorating. I'm going to try to hook up an alternate heat source for my water source and try to heat that up before it goes through the shower but from what I've read I shouldn't have had to do that. The instructions say that if the water is not warm enough then direct the shower into the water source and run it through again. For the amount of heat generated by this unit I think I would have had to re-cycle the water all night to get it warm. Nice concept but in my experience...it doesn't do what it is advertized to do.

Great unit if no showers at campground

I used this on a recent camping trip and it performed as described. To get warmer water, it is convenient that all you have to do is recirculate the water by placing the shower end back in the water bucket until the water reaches the desired temperature. The batteries and propane tank lasted through 5 showers which included about 5 minutes each time of pre-heating the water. Also I did not turn off the heater or pump while soaping up--I just kept washing and rinsing without dawdling. Carrying the water in a bucket to the shower area is a minor inconvenience. The amount of the spray is greatly improved if the water bucket, pump and heater are elevated on a table. I can imagine that it would be very inconvenient if the pump batteries and/or propane tank were depleted mid-shower.

Outstanding Water Heater and a tip.

First, this water heater works great. I use it for my husband, who is bedridden, and it works wonderful, the shower is very strong, and the water is nice and warm. Although I have NOT had the problem some have, with water not being hot enough, there is an answer to it. If you start the water and it's not hot enough for you, let it run in a 5 gal bucket, (my source of water) until it's warmer and keep it going, THEN you will have very hot water. The temp. that I get is very nice, and warm, but if you like it really hot, give that tip a try. It worked for my friend, so it should for you too. I'm very pleased with the results of the Zodi, and have even purchased another pump. I sometimes use it with a bucket of warm water, when I have a pot already on the stove, and don't need the heater. Either way, the Zodi's work very well for me. I couldn't live without them, and my husband sure is thankful we have them.

Good Product

Bought this and it seems to be very good as an overall shower. If your buying this as a stand alone unit I would suggest that you get the standing shower pole for it. That way your not holding the water sprayer in your hand the whole time. Unit must be circulating water when the heater is on so you go through the water rather quickly and there is no on off switch while your showering. If you get an extra 5 gallon bucket it helps a lot. cant beat the price camping stores have them at almost twice the price I rate this a 8 out of 10

Great for MY needs

Gotta say for the price and the easy to use guide, i like it..saves me from taken the dogs to the bathtub.....n for emergency situations....the reason i didnt give 5 stars for expectations is because the switch to lit has not worked yet...it sys to light the first time, but not the 2nd,3rd and so on...but lighting is easy tho...but jus one more thing to keep in bag if something happens..

1. Uses propane to heat the water. Instant tankless hot water. There is an electric ignition that fires the propane, heating the unit and water that passes through. The only power, which is battery, operates the pump.
by Camper999
2. Propane!
by joseph928
3. Propane only. You can use the common camp propane bottles (preferred because the heater will stand on it's own) or buy a propane tube to attach to your larger 5 gallon tank. If you do the latter, you will have to figure out a way to keep the heater upright... but it should be too hard.
by Combatoverride
4. Propane to heat the water and batteries to cycle the water through the pump.
by Thundershine
5. propane
by Vickles21
6. Propane
by miller2381
7. It uses a small propane tank to supply the heat for the water. The pump runs on 4 D cell batteries. You must use the correct tank for the heater as the tank actually supports the heating unit. There is an electric lighter for the propane built into the unit which seems to work well.
by ExpertCamper
8. Propane small green bottles
by Madwmn04
9. Propane bottles or tank (with adapter).

1. No the coils will over heat!
by joseph928
2. No you cannot shut it off at the shower head. I tinkered with mine so that the I could turn off the head and return the water to the bucket (made a circuit of sorts). If you alter it to just have a on/off valve the heat of the water may damage the tubing or it could damage the pump. For it to work safely, you must leave it running while bathing or have someone turn it off until you are ready to rinse.
by LovesDealsInTN
3. No
by Roland123456789
4. No. There is no knob to shut of the shower from the head. It is important to note that water must be flowing through the heater while the heater is burning or else the tubes will melt. If you are drawing water from a 5 galloon bucket, you will have enough water for a 5 minute shower. Don't let the water run out while the heater is on or your unit will melt and be destroyed. I keep a second 5 gallon bucket filled with water nearby as a backup in case I wish to take a longer shower. Turning off the heater and water while soaping up would be very inconvenient unless you had a helper. There are too many steps involved when you have soap in your eyes:) Best choice is to have a helper to turn on, adjust the heat, add water as needed and turn off the system.
by Combatoverride
5. NO.... but if ur using a 5 gallon bucket or something simalar u can jus put it in bucket to jus rotate n get warmer while u wash up
by delcoprepper
6. no but you can put the hose back to the bucket (if you're using one) and let it recirculate while you suds up. Then it warms up quicker too.
by Vickles21
7. No
by miller2381
8. Yes BUT: You MUST shut off the propane heater first. If you don't, and the water doesn't flow through the coils to cool them they will just melt.
by ExpertCamper
9. You don't need to just put it back in the water to recycle
by blsnbelles
10. No; just put it in the bucket where the water is being pumped from when not in use.

1. Not as hot as some would like. But let it recirculate it will get hot. Yes you can adjust it but not a lot.
by joseph928
2. From garden hose water temperature to heated it is between warm and hot. From warmer water to heated it is hot. You can adjust the "temperature" by adjusting the fuel output of the propane. If you are wanting a hot shower cycle the water from the container to the heater and back to the container until the water is at a good warm temperature. Then you can take a hot shower.
by LovesDealsInTN
3. The water is warmer than the cold water coming out of the tap if you want it hotter you cycle the same water back into your holding bucket until it reaches your desired temp. Once you start the shower it will maintain that temperature you raised it to
by Roland123456789
4. 30 degrees above your source water. Using tap water from my garden hose, it heated the water as hot as I could withstand and I could have made the water hotter. The temp is adjusted by turning the knob on the side of the heater which adjusts the flame... much like a gas stove or grill.
by Combatoverride
5. yes and no, water got hot enough that i added more cold water, but that was in springsummer months....have not used in colder weather yet....but buy turning the knob higher will make water hot, so i guess for the most to answer ur question....yes
by delcoprepper
6. It all depends on the temperature of the water you are running through the heater. If you start with very cold water what comes out is at best tepid. If your source water is already warm (leave it in a black bucket for a couple of hours in the sun - or put the shower head back into the bucket to cycle it through the heater for 5 - 10 minutes) the water coming out can be very hot. There is a knob which allows you to turn down the heat on the propane tank valve if the water is too hot.
by ExpertCamper
7. If you allow it to keep recycling the water before you use it the water will get to hot to even shower with! It works great
by blsnbelles
8. Water temperature is controlled by flow level dial at tank connector.
by An anonymous customer
9. You can adjust the flame on the heater.
by DesertKamper
10. it gets around 80-100 degrees. You can keep the temp low by turning down the heat.
by tradermike
11. You can adjust the water temperature by turning up the flame and by turning down the water flow. The slower water flows through the heating coil, the more opportunity it has to absort heat. The higher the flame, the more heat in the coil.
