Was supposed to be $50, until the seller tested it and said he couldn't get water to pump.  I asked him his price if the pump didn't work, he said "Just come and get it".  It came with everything but the collapsible water bag.  Carrying bag, 2 wall and 1 ciggie lighter chargers, two batteries etc.

So,  while I soak the pump in CLR, hoping that it's a calcium issue, not the most likely "the pumps on these things sucked*", in the event that I do need a pump, has anyone devised a work around as replacements are NLA?

The best work around for this I found is a large stock pot on a 426b middle burner. I could never get the pump to work on the one I bought.

Stock pot needs a pump to run a showerhead... 
Do try Cigar Mike for anything you need - he has added some applicable stuff in the last six months or so.
Attwood Corp makes some nice D-cell-powered submersible pumps that will handle warm water, or a lot of other chemical mixtures.

Stockpot just needs a bulkhead fitting and elevation. Better yet, put the bulkhead fitting, a hose and a showerhead on the bottom of a 5 gal. bucket and hang it in a tree. Pout the warm water into the bucket.... Lather, rinse, repeat.

I showered with a similar set up for years when working in the woods. The solar shower was great in the SW, but not so much above 45 degrees latitude.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I actually bought a battery powered shower sprayer that you put the pump in the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket. I think from amazon. IIRC it was under $20.

I bought one a few years back, battery was dead. I think I paid @ $50.  Bought a new 6 volt battery at Batteries plus Bulbs and it fired right up! Works great for little family outings and camp trips where the Mrs. "demands" a hot shower...lol.  found a very helpfull you-tube video on extending the intake and shower lines and rigging it for use in one of those shower-tents.

Yes, I think I've watched that video, it's the one with his shower tent set up and the hose extensions.  The reason for me finding a HWOD system was not that the whole stockpot on the stove for hot water doesn't work, this is more to keep my wife happier during camping.  She isn't the type to take extra steps to complete a task if there is a work around.

Both batteries that came with the system are good ones.  They hold a charge, no issue.  It's that it won't pump.  I am hoping it's that CLR will free the pump up, but if it's rusty and finished, I was looking at a few submersible pumps available on Amazon that would pump roughly the same amount per minute or hour as the existing pump.

How about a good photo of the data plate on the pump? Sourcing pumps is part of my job, so if I have the info, I can find something that will work.

I use Chucker's setup, but with the spray wand replaced with a sink sprayer.. Takes a barbed brass fitting and an adapter to go from the wand hose to the sprayer hose.  I messed with a couple setups before I got a sprayer that nested nicely in a stock pot (that was short enough to sit under my tonneau cover.)

I have one of these and at some point the pump stopped working. The battery in this thing is 6 volt. I have a 24 volt power supply at work and figured, "What they hey, I can't screw it up more than it is." and hooked it up. The 24 volts broke it loose and it was spinning like I had applied an AED to a heart attack victim. I then ordered two replacement pumps from Coleman. I got a couple more years out of the original before I had to switch to a new one. I now run some vinegar followed by water through it at the end of the camping season.. The pump part number is 2300-6251

I now have three of these units. 1 that works great, one that acts up in cold or humidity, and one that is just for parts.

The pump is going to be your hard find, as coleman no longer offers them, although you might take up the offer of the poster above, or consider that aftermarket replacement pumps are being sold in Australia (believe it or not). 

Theres a trick to breaking them loose sometimes, if they're not too stuck internally. On the end of the pump that screws on to your water jug,  the threaded cap is fitted behind another piece, the part you can see the screen inside of. On that protruding end, there are 4 half circular cuts into the edge that pokes into the water jug, 90 degrees apart. You can lay a round screwdriver shaft across and "in" those cuts, and unscrew that entire piece from the pump. Then you can see inside the pump and carefully manipulate the impeller manually.

If the pump shaft is too stuck to the brushes inside, its done for. I'm super paranoid about that as all the pump failures I've seen are from exactly that, and so I hang the pump and let it dry end of season, and buzz it every few days for a month or so, so that there are no rusted surprises come spring.

A replacement pump from AU is 50ish dollars plus whatever it would cost to ship.

Hi John,

The one I got from you ended up being the best behaved one, but the pump was siezed. I got it free but suspect it had substantial rust inside because it siezed a second time and wouldn't free up after that.

Neither of mine have a data plate or the like on them. 

[part_p_1642546_3283241039] 
It looks like the above, runs on 6v, pumps about 1gpm

I'm only able to get a partial of the numbers on the AU replacement as well.

Earlier models of the Coleman Battery powered shower uses the same pump (later models use a different pump arrangement):

I know that isn't a lot to go on, but if you can find out who makes or sells something workable as a replacement, I'd jump for joy. I'm down to my last working pump now, and dread having to shell oput 3 bills for the newer model HWOD...Even though it is lighter, packs smaller, and uses a L-ION battery...And I have parts galore for the old and know it inside and out very well.

I may break down and order one of those...unless I can find something cheaper and closer.  So, these flow rates are about 1Gallon/minute?  That helps when I go looking for a replacement pump.

I have the exact unit the pump failed a couple years after buying it and have not been able to get another. I ended up rigging up a battery operated shower pump from zodie. It does work with the smaller head that comes with the pump. But found it better to hook the pump to the unit fill a bucket with hot water then use the pump as it was intended. Not the best solution but does the job.
