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.
