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.

Sorely Disappointed

Purchased this unit last year after reading all the positive reviews. I used it last year when I couldn't use my kitchen sink to wash dishes. It worked like it was supposed to, so I'm pleased (especially since I bought this behind my husbands back). Fast forward to this past weekend (Memorial Day 2011). The first day of use, both the hoses burned off the heater unit sending steam hissing. I'm ticked, but the pump still worked, so I set the water can in the sun. Well of course the pump stopped working in the middle washing dishes. I changed batteries but that didn't solve the problem. I refuse to throw away $99, so if anyone can tell me if there are heat resistant hoses to fit this thing, I would greatly appreciate the info. It galls me to have to pay for another pump. But after reading the reviews for the competing battery operated pumps, it seems I'm stuck with this Zodi. How sad that Coleman does not sell theirs anymore.

Works good - uses minimal water

We went camping in the desert with limited water. We needed somthing that worked but did not require much water. This unit did the trick. We did showers and hair washes for 4 people. It worked flawlessly. The one unit heater is PLENTY of heat for summer camping. It is capable of heating just fine. Put your water almost as high as the shower head and it has plenty of volume. It was our most popular appliance. Well designed, simple, rugged. The propane and the batteries lasted for the week, there seems to be plenty left.

Great! Works! Love it!

I am a very frequent camper, “in the middle of no where” camper…I usually jump in a creek to “bath” so this certainly is a step up. If your expectations are something like the Hilton (or even Motel 6) you won’t be happy but if you want a reasonably warm shower in the middle of the woods you’ll be happy. We used about 5 gal for 2 showers in a bucket, (the first time we pulled directly from the creek but it was too cold) the water pressure is akin to a garden hose, not too bad but nothing wonderful. The water temp is less than 100 degrees according to the instructions. It was very cold outside and I chill VERY easily so we boiled about 1 gallon of water and used the machine to “recycle” the water until lukewarm. Once we did that the water was actually hot, I am guess 110-120 degrees – skin red hot. Very important to note that the temp of the water you’re starting out with will directly impact the shower temp. We used creek water about 40 degrees so we boiled to get hot showers. If you’re camping in July this isn’t a problem, if you’re hunting in November you’ll have a different expectation and need for warmer water. The shower head is small but certainly works a million times better than a creek. So…if you’re trying to recreate a hotel exp in the woods this isn’t going to work, but if you’re looking for a warm way to be clean this does a great job. We were able to get 4-6 showers per green disposable tank and about the same per set of batteries. It does “vapor lock” easily which is easy to fix so be sure to read the directions. The carry case is about the size of two standard two boxes on top of each other w/o the propane. Price is a bit steep outside of Walmart ($120 or more) but for $88 it is a good value and worth it because i use it a lot, 5 weeks a year at min.


I bought this for use in Florida in my hunting camp, the product is GARBAGE!! You BARELY get any water flow, and the water is NOT "Hot" even with the negligable flow! I bought a "Tankless" heater from an RV store for about 20 bucks more and was VERY satisfied with that one, hooked it to my campers water system and can get SCALDING hot water in my kitchen sink if I want it! DO NOT BUY THE ZODI you will be disappointed if you want anything close to a "Shower"
