Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!! I purchased this water heater with the high expectation that I didn't want to be boiling water for a shower while camping, and it exceeded that expectation. It was awesome to just hook it all up and instant hot water. My kids also enjoyed not having to help me boil and collect water. I should have purchased this heater years ago!! Thank you Camp Chef for taking a little stress out of my recent camping trip!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Triton hot water heater The water heater worked great. We used it with a shower tent for a week with five people showering, took long showers and used little propane. _x000D_ The stand it comes with is practically useless. I built a simple one out of wood that worked very well. The water was hot enough to shower and also used it to get water to do dishes. Its a great little unit and lots of people who saw it want one.

Silly question, but do you fill with water? If not, what us the water source? Wondering if this could work at my cabin, which has no septic system.

Asked by: Jules
It would work with a water holding tank and a 12volt rv water pump that's how I use it camping

Asked by: Kevie
Hello Kevie, Thank you for reaching out to us. Sorry that you are having issues with your Triton, If you will notice there is a Brass outlet connector, this is so that you can attach your hose to it and do a back flush and that should help clean it out and take care of the problem. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns. Regards, Camp Chef

Asked by: Handsome rider

What is the thermal efficiency of the Triton 5HWD5-1 Water heater. I have a food truck that wants to install the heater, and I'm trying to determine if the heater will be adequately sized.

Asked by: KESinger79

My year old Triton, stored over the winter, reconnected to the same water source now requires max flow rate from a sink faucet in order to activate the burner. Works fine with the high flow shower handle...is this adjustable? Thanks
