> It's not so great when it's cold outside

Does its accompanying literature warn against filling with warm water? I use a camp shower pump like this in a big, sturdy dry bag, and it does a lot more than take the edge off. All I really need to do is stop wind from hitting me, and it's downright therapeutic at times.

This shower is the best thing ever! I just bring two 5 gallon containers of water and it gets two people through two showers daily with extra.

u/SmokeyTwoPeaks · 7 pointsr/OffGrid

Great discussion! I could definitely use one of those. I have to pump about 15 times to fill a glass of water with my hand pump.

I bought this shower two years ago and it was worth every penny and is still working great. Besides showeing, I have used it for many purposes like transferring rainwater from one conainer to another rinsing dishes and watering my garden. I have a bad back and this little beauty is by far my favorite off grid purchase.

I'm in the UK. It needs a bucket. I typically boil a kettle & mix that with a bucket of 'cold' water to make it not freezing. Works... OK :)

u/milesahead89 · 6 pointsr/Coachella

My own means to shower. The line in Lot 4 last year was brutal. I'm thinking I will just buy this and a bucket.

u/Ace-of-Spades88 · 6 pointsr/ElectricForest

Tip: Bring earplugs for getting rest at the end of the night/morning. We Foresters can be a rowdy bunch.

Trick: A couple car batteries and a power inverter works wonders for charging small electronics throughout the weekend.

Tip: make note of the cleaning schedule for the porta-johns near your campsite. (Hint: early morning seems like prime time.) Nothing like getting an early morning shit out of the way in a freshly cleaned john. Also, they wont have hot-boxed in the sun yet.

Trick: I bought one of these electric shower heads last year and brought a 5-gal bucket for water. Thing worked like a charm! It's less than $50 and rechargeable. Could easily split the cost among your group. Everyone in my camp loved it.

u/1984Society · 5 pointsr/vandwellers

The shower builds I've seen in smaller places usually consist of a metal basin you can stand in, with a hole drilled down through the floor for a drain, with basically a shower curtain however you want to hang it (hula hoops work nicely) and then using some sort of pump (electric or manual) for the shower.

I don't have a shower IN my van, but I do use this - https://www.amazon.com/Ivation-Portable-Outdoor-Battery-Powered/dp/B00IFHFJXI - With a 5 gallon bucket and it works great

u/hamslamwich · 5 pointsr/vandwellers

I have the RinseKit, as its gaining popularity down here in SoCal. I love it for its purpose - I keep it in the trunk of my car to hose off diving/surfing gear. But debating whether to make space for it in the van. Like others have said, after a quick few minutes, its just a waste of space until you find another spigot.

I've also seen this which is intriguing.

u/Jordan-5 · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest

Add this shower head for extra credit. I had the pocket bag already so now I'm just gonna put the one end into the bladder of water and boom I have an almost fully functioning shower.

Here's the tent I just got. Doesn't support the weight of the pocket bag but nether did my last one that claimed it did, and actually just collapsed in on itself

You can build a van with underbody tanks and a shower, but that's much more involved. You also need a heating system to keep those from freezing, etc.

But there are any number of ways you can keep clean between showers, and in the states Planet Fitness (as has been mentioned) lets you both work out and shower almost everywhere.

Washcloths and basins of water would be plenty to get clean, if not as luxuriously as a shower.

Put room temperature water in a bucket, pour in a pot of boiling water to get it lukewarm, and use this: https://www.amazon.com/Ivation-Portable-Outdoor-Battery-Powered/dp/B00IFHFJXI (drop the pump into the bucket and shower away. If you get a wider basin you could even stand in it and let the water circulate a couple of times and extend the shower time.) Or combine with a drop-in bucket heater, to shower in hot water. Just have to get creative.

People have kept clean for centuries without showers. It's not as nice but it's doable.

u/scumteam14 · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Hey, I was in a very very similar situation. I don't know how intense you want to go with it, but here are some things that I've done at various points:

  • For face cleansing, use gallon water from the grocery store (costs ~$0.80 where I'm at and honestly a gallon lasts a long time)

  • Or fill up a small water container (if you have a spot to fill up at that has good water) - plastic or a lemonade dispenser both work well, depending on the counter size

  • If you're having issues with your scalp/body, you can try rinsing with gallon water after showering with the sketchy water (will take about a gallon or two)

  • This one is more long-term very-very-bad water type situation (brown water, no water, etc.), but if you have a good water spot to fill up at you can fill up a large water container, get a camp shower (pricey but very good, charges very quickly and holds a charge for a while), and a bucket. Boil half your water, use cold water for the other half, bam. Sounds terrible if you're used to having safe running water, but honestly isn't half bad

    I know there are water filters out there, but idk if an affordable system would fix the issues you're describing.
u/minkgod · 3 pointsr/okeechobeemusicfest

I bought one of these and one of [these

after leaving the grove at 1 am, showers are closed. I'm not going to bed gross

i bought the tent and shower thing on ebay for way cheaper. I assume you do the same.

u/tomstaplez · 2 pointsr/preppers

The best way I have come up with to heat water for a shower is warming water on a portable induction cooktop, then drop in a battery powered shower head Any ideas out there to heat water when wood campfire is not available? Without propane. Thanks!

u/cospaceman · 2 pointsr/FireflyFestival

I think I may be in the minority on this, but the shower bag never really did it for me. I brought one like this and it was really lack luster. Im 6 feet tall and after hanging the bag, the nozzle was below my waist. That would have been fine, if not for the fact that the shower head just barely dripped, Placing the bag on the roof of the car got the water nice and hot within an hour or two. But if you want to get clean I might go with one of these with some kind of wash basin, or a kiddie pool and a bucket work really well for a quick cleanup

/+ a bucket + a shower curtain to direct water back into the bucket is a very simple DIY recirculating shower. I'm planning on using upgraded versions of those parts in my more permanent build. All the other recirculating showers I've seen seem wildly overcomplicated

u/BLUMPKINFORCE · 2 pointsr/surfing

I have an electric one that plugs into my ac adapter or can use batteries similar to this: ($39) https://www.amazon.com/Ivation-Portable-Outdoor-Battery-Powered/dp/B00IFHFJXI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495650013&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=portable+shower&psc=1

I bought one of those big blue camping jugs and I fill it once every couple weeks. Works great for rinsing off my kids after a day at the beach too. I leave it in my car all the time and it's like a hot water shower.

u/AbsolutelyPink · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Agreed. Those propane units are awesome.

You could also use a camp shower bag. Hang outside during the day to warm. Now, those aren't going to be very long showers, but enough to get a person clean. I suspect you'd need a bag per person.

Another option is this added to this. Again, it's going to be a short shower, but it will work.

u/MulletWhip · 2 pointsr/surfing

I recently bought one of these portable showers, and i fill up a soft sided ice chest with warm water. The water seems to stay fairly warm when I get back to my truck after dawn patrol sessions

u/Serial_Buttdialer · 2 pointsr/dogs

Handheld portable shower

Ends 13 hours from now. Was $40, now $28.

Wahl nail grinder &
Scruffs bed

Both start at 7:30pm UK time, an hour from now.

u/bostonwhaler · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Stepped up the game this past June in my buddy's boat...

50gal fresh water tank, but it's cold, and the wet bath is mostly for storage.

Fill a blue 5gal Lowe's bucket with water and it's hot tub temp by noon in the sun. Bought a rechargeable nozzle for $35 and it was a game changer.

We have this one and it is amazing!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IFHFJXI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and get a collapsible bucket to put the one end in.

​

But honestly last year I saw a girl taking a shower using a small watering can. That actually seemed even easier than my shower set up.

u/be_to_the_bop · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

Buy a shower tent and a portable shower, acquire something to stand on like SMALL wooden pallet so you're not standing on mud, bring a few 5 gallon jugs of water (empty or filled, you can fill it there) and you can shower right at your campsite. It won't be the best shower you've had but it'll do.

u/cajungator3 · 1 pointr/blackfriday

It runs off a USB so if you have a USB adapter that fits in the cigarette port, it'll charge.

Edit: Sorry, this isn't the one I have. Mine is similar.

u/butterbal1 · 1 pointr/scuba

Cheap, work perfect, and I just bring a 5 gallon water cooler of hot water that stays warm all day.

u/Goodbutt_istaken · 1 pointr/AirBnB

Get something like this.But, I think your space should be rented out as an office/ art studio/ or storage but not as accomadations, if guest can't take a shower there.

u/hedonistichippie · 1 pointr/Coachella

I highly doubt anyone is going be creeping on you, they generally have better things to do. But I still recommend bringing a portable shower like this. My group has been using it for the past 6 years and its a savior.

u/Way-a-throwKonto · 1 pointr/vandwellers

My plan is to use a shower pump like this:

https://www.amazon.com/Ivation-Portable-Outdoor-Battery-Powered/dp/B00IFHFJXI/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=Ivation+shower+head&qid=1567661650&s=gateway&sr=8-3#

Then boil some water on the stove, and mix it with room temp water and put enough in the floor of this to cover the pump:

https://www.amazon.com/Happy-Life-Portable-Plastic-Bathtub/dp/B008XSXQIO/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?keywords=Portable+deep+tub&qid=1567661792&s=gateway&sr=8-6

... set up underneath the roof fan, with some velcro holding up a hula hoop holding up the shower curtain tucked inside the tub. Get a thing to stand on so my feet aren't soaking, attach the shower head to the hula hoop, put a cloth bag over the pump as a rudimentary filter... Voila, recirculating, hot shower, for as long as I want, for just a few gallons of water.

Bonus, the shower water can be used to wash your clothes if you separate it from your regular gray water.

u/bingbing20 · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

Battery powered shower head and a 2 dollar bucket from walmart for showers. We used it everyday last year and our neighbors even asked us if they could pay us to use it. We also bought a little shower tent for some privacy.

u/MmmmBeer814 · 1 pointr/FireflyFestival

I got something similar to this last year and it used it as a camp shower. If you split it with one other person it'll be cheaper than using their showers with no line. I also got this to use along with it, but you could just use water bottles.

u/211logos · 1 pointr/VanLife

There are tons of battery operated pumps out there, just depends on what your setup is. For example, you can just drop this in a bucket or jerry can for running shower water: https://www.amazon.com/Ivation-Portable-Outdoor-Battery-Powered/dp/B00IFHFJXI/ref=sr_1_14?keywords=water+pump+battery&qid=1563293308&s=gateway&smid=A2LM6ZPY06LT1N&sr=8-14

Look for "fluid transfer pumps" or similar, the kind with long down tubes. Many run on just a couple of DC batteries.
