Perfect I use it for dog washing outside
Works very well
This shower has been brilliant. It has transformed our outside space allowing us to wash after working rather than taking all our dirt home with us.
It has blown out once in a strong wind but so does our gas stove if it is blowy enough so not really a shock.
We have a 12v pump running off a battery and the water is from water butts.
I would happily recommend this shower.
Love this horse/ dog outdoor shower . Both the horses and dogs love it and been a life saver with all the mud we had this winter . Negatives are that the gas light goes out very easily with the slightest of wind ( mine is mounted inside) and also feel the water pressure could be better . Pressure fine for dog washing but could be stronger for showering horses ( I have good water pressure ) In order to get really warm water you have to accept a lesser water pressure as you can’t have both . Still love this product and been simple to use . Also you must ensure you drain the unit if weather freezing .
Brilliant wish I had bought one earlier
Shower is great but hose lasted less tha 2 hours of use and burst hose not included in warranty :(
Unit was bought for a Christmas gift and is a little disappointing in performance. The water is tepid (still warmer than tap water I know but doesn't work as well as needed) and the flame is constantly being blown out. For a unit intended to use outside the design to shield the performance is poor. I appreciate the H&S aspect but we have to reignite so many times when washing the horses legs that its becoming easier to use buckets. Friends have other brands which aren't this temperamental. The unit and gas are set to the max and it wasn't windy at all today but still it happened 8 times!
Can you offer any advise on how to prevent this?
Used it at home on the dogs worked wonders, then when taken to the stables and used a week later it wouldn't even ignite the gas - not working now at all and beyond annoyed.
The instruction booklet is poor, but fortunately my husband knew what to do with the bits as he's done some plumbing! The chrome shower attachment provided is not really suitable for horse use. You need to buy and fit a separate longer hose and on/off spray attachment. Having warm water is brilliant, but the unit does not cope with very cold or high pressure inlet water. As long as the inlet pressure and volume is reduced, it copes with providing warm water. I think the portable shower trolley is almost essential - otherwise its difficult to hang the unit, the hose attachments and store the gas cylinder neatly. The trolley is great and well made, but took six weeks to arrive. Overall, the horse and the dog love it and it makes my life easier, but installation and set up was not straightforward.
Extremely happy with the shower. Easy to use and works wonderfully!
