Portable Propane Hot Water Heater: A Touch Of Luxury In The Outdoors


Bringing along a propane shower on any outdoor excursion can add a touch of luxury to your time spent outside by providing instant and unlimited hot water at your fingertips. Unlike a solar camp shower which can take hours to produce hot water and depends on the sunís availability, a propane camp shower can turn frigid water into a nice steamy hot shower in minutes.

A propane shower can either be connected to 16oz propane canisters or to the 20lb tanks used for BBQs. Most models heat water by igniting a flame which heats an interior coil. Water running continuously through the coil is heated and then flows out the attached showerhead. These are known as tankless water heaters because they donít have a reservoir to hold water but instead provide instant, continuous hot water. Other models come equipped with a reservoir which is heated until the water contained inside comes to an acceptable temperature.

Convenient and efficient, a portable propane hot water heater provides a variety of benefits including hot showers, washing muddy kids and pets, cleaning dirty dishes, cleaning vehicles, gear and animals and best off all, doing it in overcast conditions or even when itís a bit chilly outside.
