That looks like a really good camping shower ...... and you can get loo/shower tents to use it in

Would be great for the small cheaper sites with only and elsan disposal ......... pay for itself in no time. Very Happy

Would you also need to be on a "superpitch" with a water supply to connect your "standard garden hose" to Shocked
Not sure about the cheapo cheapo site

cheapo site with a lake I agree Helen must put tree in to tent
brilliant Idea but if you don't have the force of water flowing through the hose pipe from tap would it suck its water up from a water drum scratch think I will ask

Just plan a couple of hours swimming in at the local swimming baths. Most only charge a couple or so quid to get in, and you can have a swim AND a shower.

There isn't very much pressure from a shower bag. The pressure is generated by the difference between the top of the water and the shower head so what pressure there is drops over the course of the shower as the water is used. Your looking at about 30 foot of water to generate 1bar (14.7psi) so the shower is more a gravitational water drop from the shower head than anything else. The other feature of these bag showers being they heat the water when left in direct sunlight. I don't know if that is during a UK or Continental summer but don't think I'd want to rely on the water heating during a winter camp. Most of the showers are 20litres so require a firm frame to attach to as they will then weigh in excess of 20Kg. This one is for a long luxurious shower after you have just put your back out trying to lift it: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Lots of people selling this sort of Whale pump type attachment from the cheap to not so cheap. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

From America two showers for people with too much money. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The second one features a pump system for pressure there was a company offering things like garden sprayers with a shower head instead. Can't find the company now but they do seam ideal if your doing off the beaten track camping. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I knew these existed but couldn't find one with a shower head rather than a spray. Found a pressure sprayer with a shower head on Amazon.
