    things to look out for

    By Bri

    from Calgary

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Pros

    • Great for dry camping
    • Makes hot water fast

    Cons

    • Pump assembly is weak
    • Pump will cause no start

    Best Uses

      Comments about Coleman Hot Water On Demand Portable Water Heater:

      watch out for the weak pump, replacement is $15, this will cause it not to ignite as the flow relay doesn't sense water coming through and it will kick off, thinking maybe a weak battery.
      only two small items to be concerned - spare battery for a long extended periods of use and pump replacement, both inexpensive

        When the water at camp has been shut off for the winter, this is the best piece of equipment to have. Recommend the shower accessory!

        Pros

        • Easy To Set Up
        • Great for dishes
        • Propane use is great
        • Sturdy
        • Very quick heated water

        Cons

        • Goes through water quick
        • Needs longer shower hose

        Best Uses

        • I use at our bunkhouse

        Comments about Coleman Hot Water On Demand Portable Water Heater:

        I use this product at our summer cabin/bunkhouse. Great for a quick hot water source. You will need to most likely buy a longer shower hose if you buy the shower attachment. Definately get the bulk tank adapter if you are keeping it in the same place so you can have a larger propane tank. If using for a shower you may need to hook up to a hose or a larger than 5 gallon water source. Great product would definately buy again.

        Pros

        • Easy To Set Up
        • Instant hot water
        • Sturdy

        Cons

        • Uses water quickly

        Best Uses

        • Camping
        • Car Camping

        Comments about Coleman Hot Water On Demand Portable Water Heater:

        While very useful in your camp kitchen, we got it primarily for showering. There's nothing like that fresh feeling of a hot shower, especially when camping.

        The thing is amazing. Twist the knob and out flows piping hot water. According to the documentation, one charge and one fuel cylinder will heat about 40 gallons of water. So far we have not been disappointed.

        The one caveat is that it uses water quite quickly, so camp near a water source or bring extra.

              I do not see any problems with using this with a 3 compartment sink as long as the sink will accept an accessory hose that there is an outlet for.

              This unit cannot be hooked up to a propane tank, as it is battery-only.

              A:

              The Coleman Hot Water On Demand Portable Water Heater does not have a central exhaust port for venting. You would want to only use this water heater in a well ventilated area.

          • Q:

            Does this pump it's own water or do you have to hook it to a water pump? Is this NSF approved or equivalent? Is there any way to run it off of electricity or generator instead of propane?

              As long as there is good ventilation you could use this in a concession trailer. This is also with the approval of any regulating organizations approval as well.
