The compact and efficient Helton Hot Water Kit is a unique hot water system that harnesses the heating power of your car’s engine to produce hot water anywhere. Designed to simulate a home hot water supply, the output temperature of the Helton is approximately 160° F, making it the hottest unit available for camping, fishing or wherever hot water is required away from home. It uses a copper heat exchanger that is heated by the engine’s coolant as it passes from the engine to the radiator and in turn transfers the heat to the passing water. Water is pumped from any water source - container, lake, river - through the heat-exchanger to the delivery hose, which ends with an attached showerhead. A temperature regulator valve is included to control the heat output so it can be used for a shower. Best of all, the Helton Hot Water is designed to be permanently mounted under the hood of your car so there’s no need to pack and unpack heavy water heaters: you simply get in your car and go. Use it to wash dishes, vehicles, and around camp.
