RINSEKIT VS HELIO

Anyone with experience on the two that can offer some advice?

Leaning towards the Helio right now simply because it has a pump, and no hose connection is needed to create that initial pressure.. Looking for something off the grid, quick and easy.. Need something reliable that will not only rinse the yak but myself for a week or two at a time in between storage...

Sorry no advice on either one but I have the Waterport kit from Costco. It was $160 but I think it's worth the price.

I had it mounted on the hitch of my wrangler and now in my Tacoma's bed. It's a bit heavy but I guess this means durable? Theres three ways to pressurize it. has a pump cap and you can also pressurize with an air compressor.

I usually fill it with the water hose and it gets good pressure from my water supply alone. The way it works is that you fill it with the hose connection, its fully sealed so it will get up to pressure and then just close the connection and now its self pressurized.

thanks brotha see the latter is how the rinsekit works but i'm going to be needing something that works down in Baja too and typically a hose connection is not practical for down there so will stick to a pump rinse kit..

Off topic but my rinse kit exploded on the first fill. Rinse kit said they donít recommend filling the tank with a water line that has more then 70psi; mine has 85.
