NEMO Helio Pressure Shower
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Sometimes what you really want to round out a perfect day of hiking or surfing is a good hot shower. The Nemo Helio Pressure Shower comes in a small, neatly nested kit, weighs less than a liter of water, and provides 5 to 7 minutes of steady and satisfying water pressure. Unlike conventional gravity-fed, hanging shower systems, the Helio system uses an 11 liter welded fabric water tank pressurized by a foot pump. To use the system, you simply fill up the water tank, let it warm in the sun, set the tank on the ground wherever youd like to shower, then step on the foot pump a few times. Pumping occasionally while showering maintains the water pressure. The system includes the water tank, Helio foot pump, 7 foot neoprene shower hose with nozzle, and a ventilated fabric carrying case. To prolong the life and increase the durability of your Helio, you should only pressurize the tank when you're using it, keeping it depressurized when not in use. Keeping the tank pressurized over long periods of time can put the fabrics and welds under constant tension. Simply spray water out of the nozzle until the stream dies out and open the top valve, letting any air escape.
There's nothing like a refreshing shower after a muddy mountain bike ride or hot, dusty hike. Use the freestanding Nemo HelioTM Pressure Shower to clean up as soon as you're back to the car.
Extended stays in the woods doesn't necessarily give you a piney scent. So if you're serious about living a life in the wild, using the Nemo Equipment Inc. Helio Pressure Shower once in a while can keep you fresh and despite your dirty lifestyle. Lightweight and small when packed, this pump-pressured shower uses sunlight to warm its dark-colored, 2. 9-gallon reservoir before you wash off the sand, dirt, or dirty dishes at your off-the-grid basecamp.
The Nemo Helio Pressure Shower is an innovative camp shower that uses air pressure rather than gravity to get you clean. The 2.9 gallon (11 liter) capacity provides 5 to 7 minutes of pressurized water for showering, cleaning dishes, dogs or bicycles at the end of the day. The welded fabric water tank is pressurized with a foot pump that builds off of Nemo's unique air beam tent design. Set the tank anywhere, no need to find a place to hang, like a gravity shower (it is not recommended to hang this shower). You can let it warm in the sun for a nice hot shower. Pump occasionally while showering to keep pressure up. Comes with a ventilated fabric carrying case and packs down small (Nemo recommends storing un-pressurized for a long service life). Great for car camping and day-trips, but also light and packable enough for backcountry adventures. A quantum leap forward in camp shower design, you'll find 100 uses for a Nemo pressure shower.
