The RinseKit, as its name suggests is for rinsing your kit, however, it's actually far more than just a device to wash the sand off at the end of the day. This clever pressurised washer requires no pumping and no batteries; it doesn't even need an electrical supply. Just fill the box up with the attached tap adjusters, and you'll get 2 gallons of pressurised to do whatever you wish with! The RinseKit uses the eonTM pressure system, which is not magic but actually just some clever science that feels like magic. There is a hose attachment that has no less than seven different settings raining from hard jet to a soft mist. The build quality is exceedingly sturdy, and you get everything you need out of the box ready to go.
Simple instructions and easy to use fittings can be found in the top of the box, and there is also a convenient carry handle for transporting it around.
We usually call this section on the water and talk about how something performs at sea, seeing as this device contains water and is for use on the land I am sure you will forgive us the title change! The RinseKit is brilliant, initially, we assumed it must be powered by magic, in the past, we have used mini pressure washers that plug into your car battery to rinse things off when we are at the beach. The RinseKit is a far more portable affair; you can take it anywhere you care to carry it.
It is capable of firing out far more pressure at a consistent level than we ever managed to achieve from our electrical options we had tried previously. It's perfect for rinsing sand and salt water off your gear at the end of a session, even better for a quick shower if you go for the hot water adapter option! If you spend a lot of time at the beach living in your van or even if you just like to keep things fastidiously clean the RinseKit is for you. Of course, it has some great applications for kitesurfing, but you can also use it just about anywhere you need a pressure jet of water or a shower. The possibilities are endless.
What is remarkable is the RinseKit's ability to hold pressure, we filled it up took it on a couple of trips, left it in the van and a few weeks later it was still pumping out water at a very respectable rate! It's earned its place as a permanent feature in our van, perfect for those sandy beach sessions and a quick rinse off before a trip to the pub after your session!
