Hot Water is a Must for Baths

    Comments about Insta Hot® Equine Portable Washing System:

    This portable hot water unit works great for us to give horses baths. My gelding definately does not like cold water and will put up a fuss. Got this heater and he just stands there for a bath. Makes me feel better that he is happy. The cons are that on a windy day the heater needs to be out of the wind because the pilot light will go out. Also make sure that you follow the directions for draining the unit before freezing weather. A must for the barn if you don't have hot water.

            Comments about Insta Hot® Portable Equine Washing System:

            My sweet husband gave this to me (and my horses) for Christmas and the horses love it - I could NEVER give baths in March before. It is easy to assemble and easy to use but could have improvements. Although it is easy to use, there is a sequence to follow when you are going to use it and I needed to refer to the book both times - I wish the directions were printed on the side. When it sits on the cart which is made for it and you use the 25' coiled hose, you can pull the cart over very easily if you don't pay attention because the coils take away a LOT of the length - I have learned to tie it to the post in the wash stall to keep it upright. The fittings are underneath - I use my wash stall for tacking up, etc., so I have to disconnect the water supply to move it out of my way and it's a bit awkward. That being said, I am THRILLED that I own this and my horses love it.

                  Love that it is portable. Used it once and it does get warm. It us still cold where I live and the water from the well is usually way to cold to give my horses a bath. My house seemed to like getting a good wash with warn water. I'm guessing that the temperature of the water will get warmer as we come into spring. Worked perfectly.

                    How is the best way to drain the unit to prevent from freezing? Just replaced my original one due to broken pipes from freezing. Trying to avoid that mistake again

                      A:

                      Storing this unit in an above freezing temperatures if possible is the best way to avoid any damage. If it has to remain in frigid temperatures, make sure the drain valve is open, this is the ribbed cylindrical stem next to the water input valve. You will also need to unhook the out-going water line to make sure the water is drained from the heat exchange unit.

                  • Q:

                    Can this unit be used to fill or top off horse water buckets in winter to keep them from freezing. We have a six horse barn. Water buckets are about six gallons each. Can it supply enough hot water each day?

                      A:

                      This will supply heat as long as the propane tank is filled and water as long as the supply is constant. This can be used to fill or top off water buckets, but depending on how cold it is will determine whether they freeze hours after the hot water has been used.

                  • Q:

                    Can I hook up a regular hose instead of the curly one? I have a friend who has one of these and the water pressure is terrible. I have really tall horses and don't want to fight with having to pull on a curly hose. Been there done that with the curly hose. Thanks

                      A:

                      You can hook up another hose. However, the larger diameter hose will decrease the pressure more. The Powermax will give you more pressure than the original Insta-Hot if a larger hose is desired.

                      A:

                      Any nozzle can be attached. However, the nozzles that have several spray options are not the best option because every time you switch a setting, you cut the water off so it shuts the unit down for a split second.
