Deck Sprayer - beyond showers

Postby Rainier70 » Fri Jun 20, 2014 3:56 pm

I know that this isn't a new idea and lots of people use sprayers for showers etc., but I thought I would add my experience to the record.

I got a 1.5 gal deck and masonry sprayer from HD. It was in the paint department not the garden section.

What a handy little bugger to have around. I modified it by lengthening the spray hose and shortening the wand sprayer. I got my extra poly hose and barb fittings from State Trailer.

The nice thing about the deck sprayers is that they deliver a flat fan shaped spray pattern. I know that you can put a sink sprayer on it, but I wanted it to use less water than that. So I kept the wand, just shortened it. Pump it up and it's good to go for quite awhile. Set it in the sun, and it can get quite hot. Or just put hot water in it for a nice shower.

Additional Uses: I put a long hose on it so I don't even have to move it to use it for a zillion things outside the cargo trailer. I can pull the hose out the door of the camper and wash my muddy boots and waders off. The same goes for my hands and even cleaning the odd fish or two. I use it to rinse out and wash dishes. Spraying off grubby grandkids' assorted toys, boots, and hands. It even helps with keeping the porti-potti clean and "fully flushed".

A great $10 investment in easy camp clean.

I just came across this shower accessory. It looks like a good option if it were not for the self contained battery feature. What do you do when it fails?

Get the best shower attachment for it here http://www.duckworksbbs.com/gear/shower/index.htm
I bought the attachment from duck works and the sprayer at wally world. It works great if you have sun to warm the tank, or a good source of hot water. This year we used the zodi hot shower I got on clearance at wally world a few years ago, it is the closest thing to my shower at home we will ever need.
We ended up recirculating the water back into the 5 gal bucket until it hit the temp we wanted, then shutting off the heater and taking a perfect temp shower, not something you find in the middle of the wilderness normally. http://zodi.com/hot-showers/hot-tap-with-bag I got mine for $75. Worth it for a happy wife :thumbsup:

I took Cindy's lead yesterday and purchased one of these from HD. But it cost me $1 more at $11.

Yes slow, I would use them too if I had them. This sprayer gets me something to use this fall while the budget gets strong enough for all the good stuff. I wish I could find some of these "recycled" items.
