Harness the sun and enjoy a warm shower in the outback with the Oztrail Solar Shower.
Fill it up and leave it in the sun to absorb some solar energy, warming the water while you are out for the day, then simply hook it up and enjoy a relaxing shower upon return.
Also great for all your campsite washing needs, the Oztrail Solar Shower is a simple and affordable way to get warm water without power.
Used this once on a 19 degree semi overcast day and it certainly did take the edge off cold water nicely. Can't wait to use it in the warmer weather
Would like to know how long the shower would last to drain 20l. Have a family of 5 and this seems top be the largest solar shower I can find. Is it best to erect the shower tent near a tree and hang the solar shower off a tree branch and poke the hose through the hose slot?
Hi Regarding set up- I am an average height woman. When the bag is full I find it too heavy to hang up high like on a tree branch. Therefore I don't know how long it would last if full. To get it high enough to stand under you would basically have to climb the tree in search of a very high branch. If you hang it on a branch about 2 metres high due to the length of the hose it means you basically have to have your shower squatting or sitting down. I am considering trying to cut and shorten the hose and am also investigating shower pumps for this reason. It's ok fora very short shower if you don't mind sitting while you shower. The ability to shut the hose while you lather up with soap then turn on again while you rinse is useful. I don't think there is enough water pressure to wash long hair but may be ok for very short hair.
These are certainly simple showers Jennifer, albeit effective for the price. I'd recommend using a rope thrown over a branch to hoist the shower up higher, or as you mention you could cut the hose to suit your needs, it will still be perfectly functional. Long hair may take a while to rinse I agree, so for anyone with long luscious locks, it may be worth investing in an electric shower with a pump.
