I own a joolca and I am not impressed with it. Its good unit untill you have a wind up and then it as useless as tits on a bull. If its windy you have to shield the thing. If you can keep it wind free they are brilkiant. If I was to rate it out of 5 i would give it 3.5. If it was.nit for the wind issue it would be 5 out of 5. Dont like it when it blows out in wind and the water goes cold on you. It happens more oftern than not. How has anyone else found these or ones like it?

If you can get more IBC set something like this up. You can then recirculate your water. If you go a joolca or similar i reconmend to put it in.some kind of vented enclosure. 1613463834_images.jpeg-1.jpg

I've heard of others that used a wind shield just like you sometimes need to with a gas cooker. I've been lucky that i have never needed to. Because I always moved it as close as I could to the shower tent that may have blocked any wind from being an issue

Yes, I was just saying to Shakergt before in reply to his pm (thanks by the way shaker, that's definitely something to take into consideration). Anyway, I was saying that the one I've looked at online is this one:- https://www.joolca.com.au/products/hottap-v2

It's called the hottap-v2, and I'm assuming that the v2 stands for version two? I'm not sure which model shakergt has, but maybe it's an issue that Joolca have solved as I can't find any mention of the problem in any of the excellent feedback that purchasers have left for it.

Either way, if that's its only issue I would be more than happy to knock-up a little wind shield for it. I like all of the accessories that Joolca have too, and the way everything just clips on/off.

I like the IBC shower idea too shakergt, but it would have to be spider proof otherwise I'd have to send Mrs D in to search for spiders before I'd go in smile


Try hard not to offend. Try even harder not to be offended.
