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

      I really don't like to leave reviews, but this product blew me out of the water (No pun intended)! I know I've never been a fan of the early spring baths with that terribly cold hose water, so I couldn't expect my horse to be either. I saw the special for the full system with the cart and thought what the hey, the price is good, I'll give it a try. I have 12 horses total, one that's white, 3 that are drafts, and one with heavy white feathers. The drafts we use for our carriage service, so talk about a battle of bathing. I've tried every soap under the sun to try and whiten those whites, but they never quite cut it. Add hot water to the mix and you've got it! I felt a bit stupid for not realizing that the hotter the wash, the better the stains are lifted, just like your laundry. We had a 42degree day yesterday, and I took this baby for a spin and LOVED it!!! One of my Belgians likes to lay in the poop in his stall, and his rump and flaxen tail were pretty rough. 20 minutes after we started, I have NEVER seen his tail so white! Not to mention I wasn't complaining about cold water running down my arm. He didn't seem to mind either. :-) Would definitely buy another!!

          This takes the chill out of cold water. We used it at a horse show for 2 horses & they seemed to love it. Make sure you use the plumbers tape or it will leak, tape is included.
          Can not comment on trolley for it, it's on back order.

              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?

              • Staff Reviewer

                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.

              Can you attach different nozzles or is the one supplied the only option?

              • Staff Reviewer

                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.

                You may have received the incorrect manual. The Insta-Hot has an on/off switch, the Power Max does not. Please call our customer service at 800.365.1311 to speak to one of our representatives if you have received the wrong manual.
