The Hot Tap Travel Shower is an instant hot shower in a box. Enjoy the convenience of instant hot showers with matchless push button ignition. Portable and self contained, the Hot Tap Travel Shower is one of our most popular instant hot showers. Equipped with a stainless steel burner, this Zodi shower provides endless hot water in just seconds. Includes a rugged plastic case that doubles as a 4-gallon water container. The powerful water pump delivers great water pressure (requires 4 “D” cell batteries). The Hot Tap is ideal for family camping, great for hunting, boating and emergencies!Sometimes campsite grime takes on a life of its own. Enter the Zodi Hot Tap travel shower, a completely self-contained instant hot water shower that sets up anytime, anywhere. An ideal accessory for family camping, road tripping, multi-day music festivals, and power outages, the Hot Tap connects to either a 16.4-ounce disposable propane cylinder or a 5-gallon propane BBQ tank (the latter requires an optional bulk propane kit). To use, simply add four D-cell batteries to the waterproof battery case, connect the propane heat source, and submerge the self-contained 6-volt water pump in a clean water source. One you hit the convenient pushbutton igniter, the Hot Tap will provide plenty of hot water for showers, cleanup, and dishes. The water temperature adjusts all the way up to 100 degrees F via the gas valve.

If you’re in an area without an easily accessible water source, you can use the rugged 4-gallon travel case as a water tank instead. The tank holds enough water for a 10-minute shower and refills in seconds. You can even hook the shower up to a garden hose to enjoy an unlimited water supply (requires an optional garden hose kit). The Hot Tap–which measures 15 by 10 by 10 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 11 pounds–comes with everything you need to shower on the go, including an 8-foot flexible shower hose, a water-saving showerhead, and a debris screen to keep the pump from clogging.

Almost perfect for us! This thing is great, plain and simple. I just tested it out for the first time and it heated the water to temperature instantly with the burner not even half way. Granted, I did start off with 75 degree water because I live in South Florida (which is where we do most of our camping). Within seconds the water coming out of the shower head was perfect for a hot shower. It was packaged perfectly and all seems well. There are 2 reason it doesn’t get the 5 stars. The first reason is that the water pressure isn’t great. Yes that means you conserve water which is key in camping situations so not that big of a deal really (as long as the pump lasts, if it doesn’t last then it’s a 3 star product to me. The 2nd reason it doesn’t get the 5 stars is that it really should have a recirculating system at the shower head, which I will be installing, so instead of wasting water and speed showering it can be routed back into the water source. For $15 more, this could have been part of the product…

Good camping water heater with slight modifications I started looking for a hot shower set up after our last camping trip of the season last year. After doing a bunch of research, this seemed like the most compact unit that heated water and from reading other people’s reviews, I was aware that the pump was a joke and lacked the ability to handle the rigors of camping without failing to pump or just falling apart. I was also not thrilled with the idea of depending on a pile of D batteries. I was also aware that this unit does not have an auto on off feature. Even with it’s short comings, it’s compact and is a better option then other tankless water heaters on the market.

Worked better with modification For our elk hunting trip in 2011, we purchased this same Zodi unit. Not only did we have to recylce the water thru the system to get it hot enough, the unit would not refire if still warm. I returned the unit at the conclusion of the hunt totally disappointed. I spent the summer looking for another camp shower, only to come to the conclusion that the Zodi was the smartest way to go; however we did modify it. We added a bypass valve just above the shower head. Now we do not have to move anything, nor do we have to shut the unit down while we lather up. It cost us $14.00 to add a metal bypass valve and all fittings and hoses. I can now divert the heated water back to the bucket if it needs more warmth or while I lather up. Our camp took three hot showers every night and over the week averaged 2-1/2 gallons total each night. One bottle of propane lasted five days or 15 showers.
