Great for disasters and camping!
We live in a rural area and occasionally have household water emergencies where there is no running water at the house for a few days - An occasional bear tearing up the water line or an elk stomping through a pipe. I simply have to have a shower even when we don't have running water!
We first tried those battery powered camping showers and they are too wimply (and only lasted one event.) When I saw Big Kahuna's video - and thier lifetime warranty, I just had to get one, but I had questions, because I needed to use it inside the house not connected to a vehicle.
So I contacted Customer Service and they were propmt to respond and extremely helpful. We needed a way to use house power for the Kahuna and they advised us about inverters. Based on their information, we discovered that our auto jump-start power unit would run the Kahuna, so now our Big Kahuna is matched to a portable power unit and we can use it anywhere. Everything works perfectly for our emergency situations!
So when our running water is offline, we just heat up a few gallons of water on the stove, add it to the Kahuna container, move everything to the bathroom shower area and enjoy a nice long hot shower. Wonderful!
Plus we can take the whole set-up camping, and it's an important part of our disaster preparedness equipment. Have shower, can travel. Have shower, can evacuate, too :)
I think there are a lot of people who would find the Big Kahuna indispensible once they've used it. In today's uncertain world, a shower can make the difference between a happy family and a grumpy one. And the lifetime warrany is a big plus, too!
So be brave, get one of your own. You won't regret it.
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.
Versatile and reliable. Worth its price
I use my 5x10 V-Nose motorcycle trailer like a ToyHauler, complete with portable shower and toilet. After a long day at the track, I need a shower, but typically the track facilities are either lacking or over utilized. To create a shower, I use a 31 gallon storage container, two hookless shower curtains, and two spring-loaded shower rods to create an enclosure. Then, I fill my 4.7 gallon Big Kahuna Portable Shower with warm water from my Coleman Hot Water-On-Demand unit, located outside under the awning since it is a propane unit. I then take a very long, comfortable shower and usually still have 1.5 gallons left over! Washing and rinsing dishes is easy too. The unit is very efficient, yet provides excellent flow and pressure. I highly recommend the Big Kahuna.
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!
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!
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.
Qualiyt Plus Quantity!!!!
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.
This is a great product and easy to use.
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.
Fantastic Product/Fantastic CS
