TOTALLY WORTH IT!!

Comments about Insta Hot Power Max Portable Washing System:

Easy to set up. Portable or permanent. Horses are happier(and me!!) during bath time. Cuts washing time due to easier lifting of dirt from hair coat because of the warm water. Powerful spray. Love it love it love it!!!!

Comments about Insta Hot Power Max Portable Washing System with Cart & Basket:

The concept of the heater with cart was an answer to my needs but we did have some issues. The problem is the mounting bolt on the heater and cart do not fit each other. It is close to a fit but so we will have to increase/adjust the size of the opening for the mounting "nail head" to go into the mounting bracket base. Also, when we opened the box for the cart, the bag with the screws and parts was torn and opened so parts were loose and spread all over the place. I wonder if we received this unit by mistake because even the packaging looked like it had been opened and then taped shut as if it was a returned item. Overall, I think the idea for this heater and cart combo is a great one.

LOVE this item! Best purchase ever

Comments about Insta-Hot® Power Max Portable Washing System W/cart:

Incredible. Hot water is nearly instant even when incoming temps are cold, the pressure is fantastic, it basically "power washes" my pony and gets out the dirt even without soap. She seems to think it's like a massage and is now totally relaxed in the wash stall. I don't ever want to be without this machine!

I'm in love!

Comments about Insta Hot Power Max Portable Washing System:

I am so happy with the new InstaHot Power Max that I just bought. Setting it up with its cart and hoses was no problem, instructions were clear, it took me 15 mins total. The first time I used it I literally squealed with glee - scalding hot water was ready in just seconds, and I know my incoming water was just barely above freezing. It is quiet when it turns on (think of the ticking sound followed by a "whoosh" you hear when your gas grill lights up) and doesn't spook the horses, the exhaust actually creates kind of a nice warmth in a chilly wash bay, and the water pressure is so nice that it almost "power washes" the deep dirt out of my horse's coat. The water spray is much smaller than you get out of a garden hose, but that is by design and not a flaw; the couplings and nozzles for its hoses are actually reducers that will take the 2.7gpm flow and make it quite powerful so you get great pressure even at a relatively low flow rate. I worried that the GPM would be so low I'd be dissatisfied, but in reality, it makes the washing better and easier. The small spray size actually is really nice for washing small areas like fetlocks and faces and avoiding overspray into places like ears and eyes. I'm THRILLED! (Plus, hey, you bet I'm bringing this when we go camping for a nice hot shower. Yee hah!)

Comments about Insta-Hot® Power Max Portable Washing System W/cart:

The instructions for assembly aren't great. In addition, mine was missing a coupling which we ended up having to buy at the hardware store. We called the company that makes it 3 times, and never got anywhere (they hung up twice). But the heater works well and it's really a nice thing to have in your barn if you don't have a water heater.

      This unit has to be hooked up to a hose. It doesn't hold water.

    Q:

    I went to use my unit and discovered that the water pipe inside had split over the winter. I thought that it was drained properly, apparently not. I cannot figure out how to open the front, in order to, possibly, replace the pipe? I have taken the screws for the front cover off, but the knobs are holding it in place. I cannot figure out how to remove them?
    Asked on 4/7/2016 by Robin

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      You may have to use some force to get the knobs off. You can use Quick Fix welding adhesive to fix the pipe inside.

  • Q:

    In below freezing temps does this unit have to be moved into a heated area when not in use to prevent freezing and breaking? -i.e. if it was mounted to the wall vs the mobile cart?
    Asked on 12/10/2015 by Stef from Iowa

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      If the unit is not properly drained and cared for in freezing temperatures, it does risk damage. It is recommended it is stored in above freezing temperatures.

  • Q:

    Is the unit in danger of freezing if used in a barn that is not insulated in winter temperatures which can drop below zero?

      This makes the same noise as when a propane tank from a grill is ignited.
