A company that makes portable washers has launched a hot water system to accompany them.

Waterboy washers are designed for when you’re without mains power or a mains water supply.

Now the company has designed a portable gas system to provide hot water.

“You can take it with your Waterboy anywhere and shower your horse, dogs or use it yourself,” said a spokesman for the company.

The Waterboy L5 tankless propane water heater requires no electricity and provides up to 1.5 gallons of hot water per minute.

It includes a gas hose and regulator to connect to a 10 or 20 pound BBQ type LP bottle.

You can attach it to a garden hose or use it with a 12v Waterboy washer, adjusting the temperature from 80-150 degrees F.

The water heater costs £182 and a 120 litre Waterboy washer – suitable for lorries carrying more than two horses – costs £323.
