    Solar shower head melted in the sun

    Pros

    • It Heated The Water Well

    Cons

    • Sun Melted Shower Head
    • The Clip Slipped Off

    Best Uses

    • Save On Hot Water At Home

    Comments about Advanced Elements Summer Shower 5 Gallon:

    We bought it for home use to save on hot water. It heated water very well. We had it for about a month and used it 3-4 times a week. The second time we used it the black clip flipped off the end of the strap and flew into the woods, never to be seen again. We tied the straps together and carried on but only used it a few more times before the shower head was warped by the sun. We returned it for a refund. Campmor customer service rocks!

      Comments about Advanced Elements Summer Shower 5 Gallon:

      I bought this to replace one that lasted us 6 or 7 years, maybe more. We use it every camping trip for a hand wash and dish rinsing station. We hang it in a tree with camp soap and a towel and couldn't get along without it. This is our third shower of this brand and our second one of this size. Great quality product.

        Comments about Advanced Elements Summer Shower 5 Gallon:

        I use this shower on my sailboat. It provides a great hot shower after a long day of sailing. My only caveat: if you leave it in the sun all day, the water will be extremely hot. Either dilute by adding some cold, or leave it out only an hour or two.

              We hang it on the side of our truck when we are on the beach. Great for rinsing off sand or fishing gear that needs cleaning up. I would have given it a 5 except I would like to see an additional hose clip. We find that over time these showers leak at the nozzle and end up using a clothespin or other clip on the water hose. Water heats great. Love the twist top for filling, feels sturdy. I would definitely buy again.

                Works Great! On a sunny 85 degree day this thing got to 115 degrees in about 5 hours. That's almost too hot to shower with. The threaded fill cap is very nice, the spray valve works well. Delivers an ample spray and 5 gal. is plenty of water. (I could probably get by with 3 gal.) Seems well built. I'll be using this at the National Scout Jamboree so it needs to be!

                  Since 1976 I've used various models of solar showers. Glad to see they've improved.Heats up fast, love the screw on cap and the shorter spray hose.

                          I would guess about one pound dry. And yes leaving the filled bag in the sun is the best way to warm the water prior to a shower, just make sure that its laying with the clear side up.
