My new solar shower.

We used to have a Zodi shower... it worked great but needed D cell batteries. We switched over to a 12V pump in a bucket of hot water and it was still a bit of a production. :thinking:

But I think this one is going to be a keeper. It's a two-gallon steel tank with an added 6' hose and garden nozzle. Fill it full up in the morning, set it in the sun and give it 10-15 pumps.

Hey Tony, did you make that yourself using a garden sprayer pump? If so, did you fab the tank yourself or convert it from something existing?

Looks like it should work well if the pump will put out enough volume. :thumbsup:

It's just a used metal weed sprayer that I painted black and added the 3/8" hose and fittings. Works great.
