Details about the mobile BOXIO-WASH washing station

The BOXIO-WASH is a mobile camping sink with dimensions of 400 x 300 x 280 mm (L x W x H with lid). Essentially, it is a black box that is great for storage in a camper or for car camping.

The mobile bathroom sink has a 5 liter fresh water tank and a 5 liter waste water container. If necessary, you can securely lock both canisters. So if you drive on a dirt road, everything is safely sealed.

The hand pump allows for effortless operation. Children can handle the pumping motion just as well as older people. No battery or even charging of batteries is necessary, the portable washing station works without electricity.

The faucet/tap is made of stainless steel and flawlessly produced. Nothing wobbles or drips anywhere – everything is tight, and it is easy to use.

All necessary parts are included in the delivery. The assembly with the four small screws and the connections of the hoses included in the delivery with the pump, faucet, and tanks took me less than 15 minutes.

I urge you to read the user manual carefully. You must attach all rubber rings and hoses correctly so that the required pressure is also generated in the canister.

To store the mobile sink, simply pull on the hoses and place the pump and faucet in the sink. Put the lid on and you're done.

The functionality consists of filling the fresh water tank and storing an excess pressure in the fresh water canister by operating the hand pump, which brings the water to flow when the faucet is opened.
