Can anyone tell me how to build a battery powered camping shower? Answered

All the ones I've seen use a 4 D cell powered water pump, but I can't find the pump any where. Thanks!

Use a boating 'bilge pump' and a 12v 7 Ah battery or 2!

If you're taking showers, its not really camping.

Why do you need a battery? Just hang a jug of hot water in a tree.

I've got one of those shower tents, and the water bag is just too heavy to hang in it, and most of all, there's not enough head room for it. I'm a tall guy.

The ones you can get use a submersible pump, but there are pumps in cars which can generate quite a bit of flow, if they are not pumping against a great pressure restriction. Screenwashers perhaps ? Steve
