Some campers view camping as an escape from city life; some view it as an opportunity to enjoy the view and fresh air. Most campers, however, are greeted with the same challenge in the form of not having access to hot water for having showers or washing up the dishes.
Joolca, an American company, addressed this issue by developing a unique hot water system solution called HOTTAP:
“At Joolca, we imagine a world where exploring the great outdoors is comfortable, achievable, and enjoyable for everyone. Starting with everything water, we are perfecting one product category at a time: running water, power, heating & cooling.”
“The HOTTAP portable water heater is among the world’s smallest heaters in its class, and portability is one of its most notable benefits. As the brand states, “Wherever you can take a propane bottle, you can take the HOTTAP.”
HOTTAP is available in three different kit variations, including the Essentials Kit, the Outing Kit, and the Nomad Kit.
The Essentials Kit is a portable hot shower system that connects to taps while the Outing Kit is a portable off-grid pump and hot shower system. The Nomad Kit is equally suited for RV campers and people living in cabins (or similar off-grid locations). It’s comprised of a portable off-grid pump, a hot shower, and a kitchen sink system.
HOTTAP can tap into any water surface, as it’s outfitted with exceptionally versatile connectors and accessories. It is supplied with a two-stage water filter, a robust pump, and long-distance feeds that can reach up to 100 feet.
Joolca’s HOTTAP portable hot shower was warmly received by thousands of satisfied customers, many of which had voiced their opinions and expressed their feelings towards this innovative solution on reputable camping websites. HOTTAP was featured on RV DAILY, the VANLIFE documentary, Salty Summits’ posts, and Station Hoppers.
Christopher, a verified buyer, praised his HOTTAP Nomad Kit, stating:
”I have been impressed by the Joolca Nomad Kit. It is very easy to use and actually fits back in the sink unit as promised without struggling. With remote camping, particularly in winter, it is so nice to give the kids a hot shower. The kitchen sink works great and I don’t have to do another wash-up when I get home. Overall very impressed with the kit and would recommend it.”
The quick setup, lightweight construction, and well-rounded connectors allow campers to use HOTTAP in almost any outdoor scenario outside of camping, whether it be trekking, hiking, mountaineering, or hunting.
