Hi All,
Would anyone own the Hott Wash water heating unit for bathing and if so does it work well?

I gagged over the price on those things and bought myself a Coleman Hot Water on Demand Unit with a garden hose adapter. It was cheaper (I see they're over $200 now), ran on propane, is very portable, and gets unlimited amounts of water as hot as you want very fast. I love my Coleman. It uses those weenie cans of Coleman Propane and they last a looong time.

I installed a small regular water heater with a mixer to mix hot and cold in the hose. About the same price and gives me more hot water than I need.
The only reason I could see for the portable is on the road, or at a boarding situation where the owner doesn't have hot water--but then they probably wouldn't be too thrilled about the electricity to heat yours, either...

Thanks for the ideas, I will look into both of these options. The price tag on the Hott Wash was a bit steep!

Kat, you can pick up a submersible water heater for under $50 that will heat up a 5 gallon bucket very quickly, only downside is that you can only sponge rather than hose. They do work great though.

Here's a link to one sellers site:
