Bottled Water Shower

Postby The Teardrop Nanny » Mon Aug 28, 2006 7:43 pm

8) Only in California would you get a shower with bottled water!! :)

The shower that was hooked up worked great! You could stay inside it and keep yourself warm while you dried off. And, as far as taking pictures....

I use a 3 gallon garden sprayer with a kitchen sink spray nozzle attached. Works great. I have never needed all 3 gallons to take my shower. If you want it really hot, just heat the water on the stove before you shower.

we bought the Zodi shower setup through walmart online. It is cosiderably cheaper than going to the zodi sight.
clicky thingy for walmart
We also found a shower enclosure at walmart for about $45.00 I think. We never saw one there before, and haven't seen one there since, so I'm not sure if they still carry them. Here is the enclosure

The Zodi worked great. We cut a small hole in the bottom mesh in the enclosure to run the shower hose. Where we were camped at had water so we didn't use the pump and water container. I went to zodi online and got an adaptor to hook it up to a water hose. It was plenty warm . The only drawback for me was the enclosure was a little small, Connie on the other hand had plenty of room. This setup too was a 2 person operation. One to turn on the water and heater, while the other showered.

my shower

Well here in West Tn there are not many dry campgrounds if any. But we do have a friend that has about 500 acres of land and a large lake that has some good fishing. So we used a old Pepsi syrup tank. We heated water on the stove and mixed the hot water and cold water. I have added a hose from a old kitchen faucet with a spray head. We add air to the tank from a 12 volt tire inflator that I keep in my truck. All buy ourselves we do not have to worry about photos and just use the stars as cover :thumbsup: . It is a great way to end a good day of fishing.

After one of Joanie's massages you could have showered in ice water and river sand and it would have felt good they were great :thumbsup:

Our local Wal-Marts in N Alabama still carry those. They run about $35.00. I havn't used mine as a shower yet, but do use it for my toilet. I usually stay in campgrounds with good shower/restroom houses, but still sometimes set up the enclosure so the walk in the middle of the night and first thing AM isn't so long :roll:
