Helio Pressure Shower - Running Water is Awesome

The Helio Pressure Shower fills two needs. 1) Some of the places we camp don't have shower facilities, so we need a portable, durable shower to take with us. 2) At home, we have well water with an electric pump. If the electricity goes out, we don't have running water in the house. The Helio Pressure Shower gives us the ability to have running water during power outages.

After camping without running water for four days, I have a renewed appreciation for this modern convenience. The pressure shower performed beautifully. I'm so very glad we have it.

Observation & Suggestion

The foot pump is tall/thick which is good because each press puts a lot of air into the tank to increase the pressure. Since everything is wet and slippery when showering, it's easy for your foot to slip off the pump. We are going to put a small towel over the foot pump and see if that prevents our foot from slipping off.

Will We Use It Again?

Yes, I look forward to using the Helio Pressure Shower on all our camping adventures to come. I guess that's the best recommendation one can give.
