Cheap and effective but could do better,

This review is from: Highlander Solar Shower - Black, 20 Litres (Sports)
Well, you can't expect too much for that sort of money. That was my outlook when I ordered it. When it came I was pleasantly surprised. The vinyl seemed perfectly substantial and it had a reinforced tube in the handle where the hanging cord attaches. The filler was easily used and it could be filled from a tap or a river equally well.
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.
