Default RinseKit spray wash system

Anyone got one of these?
How do you like it?

You pressurize it with your hose pipe.

So how does that small amount of pressure get all the water out of this thing? Just doesn't seem like it would have enough pressure to spray it all out .

it works similar to a pressure tank on a well

I have seen one in use (in person)

it does not have super high pressure but it definitely works

what do they go for now?

they were pretty new when I first saw them a few years ago and I thought they were way too expensive . . .

They are $90 at Academy.

Still a bit high in my opinion.

A $20 pump spray garden sprayer with maybe a better nozzle seems cheaper and better

fwiw it moves a lot more water (volume) than a pump up sprayer

I would think it had a pressurized bladder like some water well tanks
water line pressure is higher than the pre pressured bladder, so when filled up it would have the same pressure as the line you filled it with to start out and would never drop below the pre pressured bladder pressure until the water is gone

I had one. Used it 5 minutes before it broke. Had pressure issues and then the bladder broke. It Looked like a cool concept but after using it I thought it was an overrated piece of crap. I quickly returned it. I have been looking at big kahuna showers. They are tad pricey but look well made and run on 12v.

Ive been selling them out of my surf shop since they were invented. They actualy have a crazy high pressure equal to whatever you street pressure is. I keep one on the front porch of my store so customers can play with it. You can easily spray to the middle of the street. Never had one break. They are popular with beach goers to rinse all the kids feet off before they get in the truck and surf fishermen like them for rinsing their reels. I canceled the freshwater system on my new boat and keep one full in my front deck hatch. The owner of the company left wall street to market them.

Yeah the Big Kahuna showers are expensive. But one of theirs has a heater in it.

I was wanting something I could refill and use camping etc.
I think I might just go low tech and use a $3 5 gallon bucket and one of those drop in shower pumps for $20 bucks.
Then I can dip bucket in creek and refill and use again.
