Some of them are anti-freeze protection, a flame failure device, and overheating protection. A special LED display screen shows you the temperature.

The heater is equipped with mounting brackets, which you can find on the top and backside of the unit. They are intended for easy installation. Moreover, the unit has a very convenient high-quality handle so that you can carry it with you and enjoy your camping experience.

What Does It Do?

Being designed as an outdoor water heater, this one can be used for camping. You can even hook up this system to a garden hose. The only thing you need in order to do this is an adapter which to convert the pipe thread to the garden hose. Of course, if you insist, you can also install this unit indoors. To do this, you will need a flue pipe, and you should keep the device well ventilated. Whenever the pressure of the water rises above 110 psi, it will be automatically decreased by the Gasland BE158 1.58GPM 6L Outdoor Portable Gas Water Heaterheater to provide the necessary safety. If you are not satisfied with the level of water or heat flow, you can adjust it to your taste.
