About this project
How awesome would it be to clean up at the park or beach and rinse off the kids or dogs before they get in the car? That’s exactly why we created RinseKit, its like having a hose to go! RinseKit is the only portable shower to have the pressure of a garden hose without pumping or batteries.
Now with your help, very soon it will also be the ONLY pressurized shower to have a battery-powered heater system that quickly and safely heats water to 100°F - A hot shower anywhere with the flip of a switch!
The RinseKit's patented design simply stores the water pressure from your home for later use. As the water pressure from your hose spigot enters the RinseKit, it compresses the air in the chamber. When you close the valve, that pressure is trapped in the RinseKit and acts like a spring to force the water through the hose and out of the nozzle.
RinseKit’s patented design can hold the same pressure as a garden hose (55-75 psi) for over a month. When in use, RinseKit can spray for over 5 minutes depending on the nozzle setting.
RinseKits are BPA-free, so they are safe to drink from and you can use its water for cleaning up after cookouts. There are also no moving parts and RinseKit is made of extremely tough virgin PE and ABS plastics. Additionally, RinseKit is made from materials that will not rust, so you don't have to worry about corrosion. it’s extremely durable.
RinseKit has six sprayer nozzle settings and a 6 foot long hose. The detachable lid also acts as a standing pad to rinse off dirty or sandy feet, a cutting board with inch marks for measuring fish and a handy seat. RinseKit can also store wet swimsuits, sunscreen and more under the lid.
Whether you’re cleaning up after hiking, surfing or work, just need to rinse your car or remotely water plants, RinseKit is like having a hose-to-go!
- Now you can wash your dog with warm water!
- Rinse off little feet after a day on the beach with the family
- Clean up after a lunchtime workout so you’re ready for work
- Wash the car without the restrictions of a stationary hose
- Use while camping as a shower, to rinse off dishes or put out campfires
- And much more…

Why Kickstarter? We are essentially a start-up company with big dreams. We hope to introduce RinseKit to people who live active lives and love to get dirty. Kickstarter is the perfect platform to reach a diverse group of people that are up on the latest trends and appreciate innovative design. We need help from the Kickstarter community to bring our heater accessory to life. From surfers to parents to dog owners to anyone that gets dirty, RinseKit offers the convenience and versatility to fit into Kickstarter backer’s lives. Thank you for helping to make our dream a reality. We’d love to hear your feedback, so please give us your thoughts in the comments section.

Risks and challenges
RinseKit- We expect no delays with the delivery of RinseKit to our Kickstarter supporters. We will begin shipping June 3, 2016 . We are about to receive a large shipment and our production facility is standing by to keep up with demand. This product is built extremely well and we are confident that it will provide you with many years of service.
RinseKit Heater Accessory- We have been working diligently to develop the Heater Accessory for this Kickstarter campaign and we now have a working prototype that will heat cold water to 103 F max in approximately 30 minutes. If we reach our Kickstarter funding goal, we will immediately begin engineering, tooling and full-scale manufacturing to deliver this game changing invention.
Here’s what we see as the risks. MANUFACTURING: Creating the tooling to manufacture a product like this is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right. There is typically a 60 day lead time to create the molds for a product similar to this and that is one area where delays could occur. To minimize the possibility, we're working with a tooling manufacturer partner that has a superb track record for delivering high quality tools on time. PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: As the Heater Accessory gets readied for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate our adjustments and those suggested by our experienced manufacturing partners. We do not expect delays. In the unlikely event that we have delay, we will keep you informed. We will also inform you any changes to the performance or specifications of this product. FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things go sideways that can’t be planned for; a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down or a shipment gets delayed. These things could cause a delay. We have selected a factory with a very good track record of building this type of product, with deep experience creating heating elements and rechargeable batteries. We do not expect any significant manufacturing delays. If by chance we do experience a delay in manufacturing, we will keep you in the loop about it. We promise that we will not compromise the quality of the product to meet a deadline. Your pledge brings us one step closer to the goal of delivering the ultimate portable shower system.
