When our family went on our week-long camping trip this past summer we enjoyed using our camping shower that we purchased from Cabela’s. We have a nylon shower “tent”, a cedar “floor”, and a cool stainless steel tank that can be pressurized along with a sprayer.
While we were camping I was thinking we really ought to have a back-up shower, but they’re pricey and it really doesn’t fit into our family’s budget right now.
While reading an update post at Adventures in Self Reliance they linked back to their post on constructing an emergency or camping shower. This is the perfect back-up system for us and I just had to share it with you.
It has a number of uses – even if you don’t camp.
Have you ever have your city work on water pipes and were unable to shower because the water was turned off? If you store water you can heat some up and put it in your emergency shower and have a nice warm shower!
For those of you with electric hot water heaters – have you ever had a power outage and found that you only had cold water? With this emergency shower you can warm up some water (outside on your camping stove or inside if you have a natural gas stove) and have a nice warm shower using your emergency shower.
Anyway, you get the idea. I think every family ought to have an emergency shower – even if they don’t camp!
