    My new portable shower!

    I read on a different forum that a lot of people use these in their awnings, so I thought I'd bite the bullet, as I haven't got a shower and will soon be going to a non EHU/or anything weekend festival site.

    Took a whiley to get it working properly as you have to fix all the bits together, says how to operate on the side of the tank.

    Watered the flowers, so far, so good....

    Had a shower (in my shower cubicle at home) with it this morning!

    It holds 5ltrs of water and has a tiny shower hose at the end. If you wet yourself, switch off, lather and then switch back on to rinse, it works very well! You would need to wash your hair separately. Mix hot water (not boiling!!!) with half filled cold water until the right temp.

    It has a trigger spray which you hold, so directional. If you hung the shower head up, you would need a peg or something to keep the trigger on. And you will need a plastic tub/container/maybe a shower curtain to contain the waste water...

    But just as an occasional shower-cum-all-over wash, it's effective - and easier than standing at a sink!!!

      Right, we will all be queueing up at J.J`s car and body wash.
      Do we bring our own soap?

          Thought about one of these too, although the reviews aren't good. Mostly re: the sun warming it up, though. So why couldn't you just add a bit of warm water to it if it's not warm enough?
