HOW DO I DECIDE WHICH MODEL IS BEST FOR ME?
The Traveler is smallest and lightest of the Hot Taps but if the temp of the source water is below 65 deg it may need to be recirculated for a few minutes until it reaches shower temperature. This is done by placing the shower nozzle in a bucket and running it until the output water is up to temp. The Traveler is great for one or two persons where the situation calls for light weight especially in the Summer when the water source is warmer. It is also an excellent choice for those on a budget. Both the Traveler and HP put out about 1/2 gpm so the shower pressure is exactly the same.
The double burner HP is capable of heating cooler source water with a single pass. This makes it more useful in the Winter or when the water source is cooler. We recommend the HP over the Traveler if cost and weight are not an issue.
The X40 is bigger and heavier and more suited for commercial outfitters or serious campers that want a higher output heater. The output of the X40 is about 1 gpm. If you are working from a bucket or limited water source the HP or Traveler may be a better choice to give a longer shower.
This powerful 12 v submersible pump turns any water source into endless running water. Connects to any car, boat or RV 12 volt battery for instant water pressure. Works with all Hot Tap or Stove Top models. Ideal for outfitters or large groups, Complete with 10 foot power cable. Upgrade to the 12 volt pump for extra options & convenience.

HOW DO I DECIDE WHICH ACCESSORIES I NEED?
The 12v pump is a great addition the the HP or Traveler for extended camping trips or in a permanent camp when a 12v power source is available or with the Zodi 12v Battery. The water output will not be increased, as the shower nozzle is what limits the flow rate.
Adding a Bulk Propane Kit to the HP or Traveler will give you hours of use without changing propane. It also acts as a nice steady mount, lessening the risk of being accidentally knocked over.
The Garden Hose Adapter is something we recommend to all customers. It's nice to hook up directly to a faucet when available.
