- We have purchased several Triton 5Ls for our ranch – it reliably provides adjustable on- demand heat via a propane source. Both the flame intensity & the water flow can be adjusted to modify the water temperature. In the winter, when the water is much colder, you can decrease the water flow in conjunction with a maximum flame to provide a very hot shower, even if it’s snowing outside. However, don’t let the unit freeze without draining the water first – we’ve broken two this way with temps only as low as 25F. In the hot summer, we often disconnect the propane and let ambient water run through the system. This is a well made Chinese product that we do use in indoors since a 15 minute cutoff is embedded in the unit, but it does produce CO, so ventilation is recommended.
- The Camp Chef Triton actually works and does what it claims to do. This is very refreshing when you look at all the hype from other product that never work as expected. The Camp Chef exceeds. My well water is 65 degrees but I have no problems getting hot water instantly. The one thing I did not realize was that it can not be mounted on a wooden wall or any wall made from a combustible product. I over came the problem by attaching a non-combustible material on the wall and then mounted the water heater. This is such a remarkable product I don’the understand why it is not marketed more widely.
- I purchased the heater to accommodate warm showers at our fish camp in south La. i was pleased to learn that the unit comes with an adapter so a garden hose can be connected for water output, as an alternative to the provided shower head. This allows a direct feed to the camper and the existing plumbing can be used for a shower. I am happy with the product for the price and anticipate a lot of use.
- On Windy days the wind blows out the pilot and cuts off the flame which makes cold water come out.
- The reason we gave it a 4 star is because the flame blows out with the least bit of wind, we have had to rig a surround to protect it from the wind, other than that you have a wonderful hot shower while camping
- I don’t recommend the Triton Hot Water Heater for camping because it doesn’t have a pump in it, which is essential if you’re using 15 – 20 gallon buckets, or containers, as your camping water supply. It said in their sales material that it needs a minimum of 1.5 gal./min. going through it to set off the propane gas heater, but even using house pressure (about 3 gal./min.) it didn’t set off the heater. We tried every way we could for 45 min. in 35 deg.F weather to get it to work, and it just wouldn’t heat up.
