      Best Uses

      • Surfcasting

      Comments about 8 Gallon Portable Shower:

      I have only used this product a handful of times so far to wash down my gear after surfcasting. The fine stream is powerful enough to wash salt and sand off my tackle, waders, truck and whatever else I want to protect from the effects of salt water. I wish they had used a coiled power cord as the existing cord can be unruly at times, otherwise this is a great product.

      Comments about 8 Gallon Portable Shower:

      I fish the beach and camp a lot. this little gem is a must have when living out of the back of your truck for a few days. Pull it out, plug it in, and rinse/clean/shower. This made coming home after a 4 day tournament on the beach a lot easier, my dog no longer runs from me! Use it for rinsing off the truck, rods, myself, etc, etc. if you go to the beach, fish the beach, or camp a lot, you should invest your money in one of these.

      Service and delivery comments:

      So these have a lifetime warranty. i didnt know that. i broke the hose, called them up and asked for a replacement part, they told me to send the whole unit back to be refurbed!! Could not believe they stand behind their product like this. Turn around time was very quick, and when the unit came back, it looks like its brand new!

          Pros

          Cons

          • Power cord not long

          Best Uses

            Comments about 8 Gallon Portable Shower:

            The 8 gallon portable shower provides a good flow of water to rinse off after a swim from a boat. Capacity more than enough to fully rinse off 4 adults, 2 kids aged 4 & 6 and several sun glasses during the course of an afternoon.

            The power cord may not be long enough if you wish to connect it through your truck cargo window to your cigarrete lighter. Useful for when you wish to rinse your kids, snorkel gear and beach toys after a day on the beach with the shower container sitting on the cargo bed. You can purchase an extension in such cases.

            It is simple and effective. I have not tested the product claim that it can relatively heat water quickly if left in the sun. But any water left in a plastic container long enough will be heated.

            Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was free standard shipping and arrived on time and undamaged. Order completion took longer than I expected, 3-4 days, before it was shipped.

            I use this product for a shower when I am hunting. This year I used it out in the field to clean the wild game out. Worked great just plug it in to the rhino side by side, and wash out the game. Best money spent.

              Our family uses this all the time for our bi-monthy camping trips. We love that we can have a quick rinse at the end of the day when it is hot and sticky - especially in Texas

              We do a lot of K-9 and rescue training which require getting down & dirty. The dogs as well as the firts responders love it. We have a total of three of the 13.6 Gallon portable showers and it was money well spent. Thanks for making a great product and GOD Bless.

              Comments about 8 Gallon Portable Shower:

              this shower is the perfect fit for someone like me who has a seasonal cabin. we use this shower everyday we are there, winter or summer, very portable and easy to move. it would be great for camping. the water spray is very strong with plenty of water. i have had my big kahuna shower for three years, and after using a few different type of hang type shower bags, i am completely satisfied. the warranty is the best. i broke my hand held spray handle and called to order another. they shipped it immediately at no charge. then they followed up later to be sure i was satisfied.

              buy one of these units and your shower issues will be over!

              Comments about 8 Gallon Portable Shower:

              We use ours whenever we go camping, or even just on an off-road adventure. It's so handy to rinse off, or even to keep a cool head during hot summer months here in the California deserts. We have two sizes, a smaller short-term version and also a larger one for more people or a longer stay. As part of our emergency preparedness kit, they are always nearby and ready to use.

                Comments about 8 Gallon Portable Shower:

                My parents bought me a Big Kahuna (the 4 gallon model) for Christmas and it truly is the gift that keeps on giving. I use it primarily for surfing and also for beach days with the kids. When I go surfing, I fill it with hot water and the water stays relatively hot even after 3-4 hours of filling it up. It has good pressure and the parts seem to be high quality. The seal on the lid is very tight and I have never had any water leak out of it. I would highly recommend this product!
