Kidwash2 for locations without running water? Answered

Dear Instructable Friends,

I really love m3285's instructable for making the kidwash 2 as seen here: https://www.instructables.com/id/KidWash-2-PVC-Sprinkler-Water-Toy/

I work for the American Heart Association.  The AHA does awareness events called Heart Walks.  My local heart walk will be happening on a day that will likely be very, very hot.  The location doesn't have running water but has access to electricity.  I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on some kind of easily refillable tank that I move though this setup?

Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

You can just get a bunch of garbage cans - clean ones. Get a submersible sump pump - doesn't have to be to powerful, they drop in the bucket and have a regular garden hose hookup to attach to your sprinkler. If no electricity, just elevate the garbage can to a height where you get good water flow from the misters and hook up with a spigot or valve siliconed and bolted to the bottom/side of the can for the hose. Good luck.
