I had read all the customer reviews so was expecting the tubing to fall off, which it did. Now you could gaffer tape it back on but a neater solution is a quick roughen up with sandpaper and a dab of shower sealant. A proper job in no time. So why don't Gelert do that in the first place? It comes ready assembled so presumably someone is putting tube 'a' on to spout 'b'. Would it add too much to the unit cost to seal it?
The output from the shower head is pretty feeble but from experience with similar set-ups you soon develop a satisfactory technique. I may drill a few more tiny holes in the head and I feel sure that will go some way towards getting a better shower.
It has a chart on the black side showing time and temperature achievable (given an ambient temperature of 21C) The outside temp in the sun was 8C and I managed 12C water temp after 2 and 1/2 hours. So in the summer very possibly there will be hot water
I bought this to provide two showers per day while wild camping by a Scottish loch. I think it will do the job fine. I would recommend this item with some reservations. As I said at the start, you get what you pay for.
I pop mine on my car roof during the daytime, leaving it in the sun for as long as possible to warm up, then return to it for a quick shower in the early evening. By this time, I'm hot and sweaty and more than ready for a shower - so this is just what I need and I leave it on the roof with the shower hose directed between the opening rear doors of my Kangoo. Obviously, the shower doesn't have a thermostat and the temperature it reaches is governed by how sunny the weather is and the outdoor temperature but on a warm day (25 deg) it certainly warms up the water.
I find it works best by not fully filling the bag - which helps ensure a more even water temperature and also makes it easier to lift as 20 litres weigh 20kg and this can be quite unwieldy to lift above head height.
The only drawback is that, while it's good for a warm trickle shower, it is useless for washing long, thick hair so this is something I have to forgo but - hey, I am camping and there are ample camp-sites available for anyone wanting full facilities and all mod cons!
If you're looking for a means of having a warm rinse-down at the end of the day and want to avoid camp-sites, then this is just what you need.
I should have gone with my gut feeling. All they seem to be good for is pouring cold water on yourself, which any decent bucket will be able to do. They don't seem to heat up to any comfortable temperature, no matter how long they get left in the sun for. The best I managed was verging on lukewarm. The tubes leak, forcing me to resort to duck taping them to the bag, the bags don't empty properly due to the placement of the tube and the handle began to rip even with only a half full bag. The flow is dodgy as well unless the bag is hung from something. Tough if you don't have anywhere to do so.
The one good thing about them is that the tap for turning the water flow on and off is pretty rugged.
Basically, just get yourself a bucket instead.

Would not even let water flow through it at all, and then fell apart in my hands.
Waste of time and money.
