Helio LX Pressure Shower
Most showers designed for camping have to hang from trees and require gravity to push water through, making for a high pressure at the beginning and a terribly low pressure when the bag is only half full. Nemo fixed this problem by adding a foot pump to the Helio LX Pressure Shower; you control the pressure from the first scrub to the last. This innovative design also allows you to keep the bag on the ground instead of hanging from something. This LX version offers 20% more water than the standard Helio model, and that equates to ten minutes of steady water pressure.
- Clever camping shower defies the troubles with gravity
- Included foot pump assures steady water pressure
- Silicone sleeve holds nozzle in the open position
- LX model offers 20% more water for 7-10 minutes of use
- Item #NEM006I

Just do yourself a favor and buy it
We just got back from our first camping trip with this thing. It was well used at the camp site and everyone thought it was such a great piece of camp gear at our site. I could nut figure it out at first, and what I was missing was how to pressurize the thing. Here is what you do: fill it up all the way. It will be heavy to lug back to your site, but trust me, this is the best way. Screw the top on. Undo the tab on the foot pedal. Then step on it to pressurize the bag. You'll see the water bubble up and the bag gets blown up. Once the bag is taught, you press the tab back in to close it. Now your water hose is pressurized! It was great to have at our site to have for fresh water. We washed dishes with it, and it was awesome. Really convenient. I highly recommend it!

Love this thing!!! Unfortunately the top carry handle broke on the first use. Sending it back, but will buy another, and give it a go

Camping Comfort and Cleanliness!
I love to get dirty, dusty, muddy, sweaty and stinky, but sharing a two man tent with my wife and dog after doing any combination of those things can get a bit malodorous. The Helio Shower is so clutch for this purpose, and to do everything from rinsing off the dogs paws to cleaning dishes, bikes, etc... If you pair this with the Heliopolis tent it works like a charm. It seems pretty tough so far and like all things Nemo it should hold up for ages with a bit care on my part.

Incredible upgrade to camp setup
If you like camping but hate not being able to shower. Or surf a ton and have to jet off to work post session. Or love to get your mtn bike nice and clean right after your ride. The Helio XL Pressure shower is an absolute game changer. An upgrade in size from the smaller and original model the XL allows an easier seal valve on top with the screw top and a little bit more capacity water wise and the foot pump works just as well. A few other upgrades from the previous model was a handle is on the bottom which allows you to hang this upside down when empty so it will dry out 100%. Just fill it up, let it sit in the sun or in your hot car during the day and when you need to rinse off your board, bike, or even a small child and yourself it works awesome. The pressure is great and provides more than enough to get rinsed off with some fresh water after being in the ocean, at a dirty campsite, after a hike, a muddy dog, you name it. I loved this soo much that i bought this version even though i had the smaller one. That's how great this product is. It fits into the stuff sack very easy and does not take up much room when packed. About half the size of a basketball or so. I have taken this to Puerto Rico, Mexico, camping countless times, and to the beach to get all that sand off before getting into the car. I can't think of a good enough reason not to bring this on any trip.

This is a great addition to any camp set up. It holds 5.9 gallons of water and will run non stop for 5 min. Can't wait to use it more this summer on all the trips.

More than a Shower!
This pressure shower is so useful! we do use it for a shower when camping or on the road. But even more useful, we use it to wash bikes, Cool the dog off on hot days, wash dishes at camp, wet t shirt contest, it's really a do it all pressure shower!

Better than you think...
Its the item you never knew you needed so badly... I use this for everything thing... Surf trips, camping trips, dishes, dog, bikes, watering plants, etc. Takes very little effort to pressurize and its keeps pressure for many minutes. The pressure stays strong too. I like the LX version a bit more becasue of the larger capacity and the closed system. The smaller version has a bleed valve which is great for making sure it isn't over pressurized, but I really like the closed system... It allows you achieve a higher pressure to the unit. Also I like how its black now instead of grey. Gets much hotter in the sun i think. The little rubber sleeve is super nice for hands free. YOu can find a stem on a tree to hang it on, and . boom, you got a real shower. I also like the opening is big enough to clean out. The regular version is too small to get your hand into... Get one, you wont be disappointed

I am a van dweller and utilize this thing outside of my gym or hospital's hours and it is a life saver. With a full tank of water, it takes little to pressurize, and just a few foot pumps to keep solid pressure. Being that it is an upright tank, I rigged a secure line that connects to the the D-Ring to keep it from falling over during transit. I've found it easiest to rinse first, suds up, then rinse again in terms of efficiency but to each his own and how they like to shower. The spray nozzle comes with a rubber depressor to keep the gun continuously spraying, but find it unnecessary and it depletes your water stores far faster. If you want warmer water, put it in the cab of your vehicle or somewhere where it can absorb more heat, but be cautious, it is a closed system and will expand with additional heat, so the system shouldn't be left pressurized and then placed in to direct heat or sunlight. Cheers

I've always been skeptical of camp showers, but this thing is awesome. The pressure is impressive and it lasts way longer than I thought it would. I use it not only to shower, but to give the bikes a clean and my dog a rinse. It will go on every car-camping adventure in the future!

Does the pressure work just as well when the bag is partially filled? Also, does this pressure shower hold up to regular use?

Can you add warm water to this? Not boiling but something warm enough for shower?
