A very good portable hot water system. Very easy to use and versatile

The hot water system is well constructed and easy to install. The instructions are easy to follow. The unit has clear dials for setting temperature. We have used it a lot and it is very easy to use. Show details

Nobody minds staying at the shed now we have the Joolca

Easy to use. Great design,
Water temperature stays where you set it.
No problem with high demand, 4 people use it ,one after the other. As long as you have enough water it does its job. Show details ·  1

Instant hot water - total game changer!

Easy to set up, even easier to use! Loved having instant hot water for showers and dishes. Water was so hot - had to set at lowest temp for showers. 15 litres of water for a shower plenty to wash and condition hair. Show details ·  1

A perfect end to a day on the beach

After several summers of investigating having an outdoor shower a caravanning friend put us onto the Joolca website. We watched the video and we were sold. Our unit is now semi permanently set up and copes beautifully with the demands of an extended family, kids and adults. The versatility is a feature where we use it for showering after beach time, washing wetsuits, cleaning BBQ’s etc.
The talk of our Summer. Show details ·  1

Great Set-up

Great setup being able to adjust both water pressure and temperature I can fine tune the shower for showering or crank up the temperature for the dishes. Set up was easy with the click & connet fittings. The only thing it's missing is a soft cover to protect it between uses. Show details ·  1

Oh my god! I am so happy!

I bloody LOVE my Hot Tap! When I first tried it out, I turned it up to its hottest because I had read a review that said they don’t get very hot……what a load of rubbish! It was too hot! I had to turn it down so I didn’t cook myself. It is an awesome product. I could not be happier. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Show details ·  1

Let down twice on camp

Lots leeks with cheap connectors, 1st pump stopped and was great to be replaced but then 2nd one stopped also after little use and wouldn’t replace that, had to buy new however brought same pump elsewhere for 5th Joolca price. Main issue is the system is unreliable and when camping and it breaks down your out of running water for the rest of your camp

My joolca hot tap has been running perfect for 5 years , now it is either boiling hot or cold , I've adjusted the water flow to suit and gas flow seems good . My question is : Does the thermostat eventually fail and can I replace it ?
