As the ski season tapers down and our minds start to drift to beach barbecue vibes it’s fun to look at the latest gear to optimize our outdoor recreation. Really digging this foot pressurized mobile shower system by Helio that allows you to wash off just about anywhere. If you’re the type that doesn’t mind getting dirty but does mind staying dirty this puppy could change your game.
The Helio™ LX has 5.8 gallon tank with a foot pump that with occasional pumps you can keep fully pressurized for 7-10 minutes of strong continuous spray. Shower in a parking lot, blast the dishes at your campsite, wash off your dog at the trailhead…super useful little device. BUY HERE.
Unlike gravity camp showers that need to be hung overhead and produce dismal water pressure, Helio™ LX rests securely on the ground and delivers the pressure you need to wash hair, do the dishes, rinse off gear, water your plants, or wash the dog.
You can quickly and easily pressurize the 5.8-gallon tank with a foot pump – and with occasional pumps you can keep it fully pressurized for 7-10 minutes of strong, continuous spray. The tank cannot be over-inflated. Set the black tank in the sun to warm up gradually, or you can fill it directly with hot water for a warm shower.
Unlike other pressurized showers, Helio™ can be refilled anywhere, even without a hose. The 7-foot neoprene hose is long enough to hold it overhead for a shower, or to reach all angles of dirty gear, muddy paws, or salty wetsuits. Pair with Heliopolis™ privacy shelter, which has a fitted nozzle holder for hands-free overhead showering, for the ultimate home-away-from-home shower in the backcountry.
