Just because you are off on an adventure doesn’t mean you have to miss all the comforts of home. EpicTraveller’s portable solar camping shower means you can have a warm shower wherever you are.
Stay fresh on the road using a portable camping shower
Whether you are camping, travelling or at a festival it can be a struggle to keep clean. The facilities might be crowded, dirty, or just plain non-existent. Bring your own shower along instead. Then when you are done, take it away with you to use again.
Hang the bag from a tree, hook, or similar place, and allow it to heat up in the sun. Then use the attached shower nozzle to bathe with. No pipes, no connection to the water supply, no electricity or power needed.
You can enjoy the convenience of a shower rather than a strip wash or using a standpipe – much easier to get clean when using something so close to a normal shower. Set the shower up wherever you like to get some privacy or away from the rush and queues of other people waiting to use the facilities. And get some added warmth where hot water isn’t available, there might not be power to heat water, or any hot water left over.
It’s eco-friendly and solar powered; it can still provide you with warm water in the middle of nowhere or without power. If you are enjoying a pared-down retreat away from mod-cons the shower is simple enough to fit in. The shower only uses the heat of the sun and power of gravity.
It’s the perfect antidote to busy, dirty bathroom facilities in hostels, at campsites or at festivals.
Types of Camping Shower
There are three main types of camping shower:
- Gravity solar camping shower
- Pump action camping shower
- Electric camping shower
The gravity based camping shower uses gravity to flow water from the reservoir sack to the nozzle of the shower and to your body. This kind of travel shower is most versatile because it can be folded up very small and can be used almost anywhere. Plus, there’s the added benefit of the solar shower is that you can leave the black reservoir sack out in the sun to heat up and then have a warm shower rather than a freezing one!
The pump action camping shower is a great option for travel that is not too “rustic”. The pump action shower has working parts that can be damaged and it cannot be folded down into a small space. However, it does have the benefit of high water pressure which can be a relief when camping or in very rural areas.
The electric travel shower is the best option in terms of comfort and simplicity. However, they are not very practical for several reasons: 1) they need power of some description, and 2) they aren’t generally very compact. On the other hand, they can often work with a larger reservoir which can make them a bit easier to use.
Advantages of using a camping shower
A camping shower is an ideal companion when camping or travelling in remote and rural areas. The camp shower allows you to keep clean and helps you with your personal hygiene.
On top of the hygiene benefits, a camping shower can make a remote trip so much more comfortable. Clean, fresh running water can be such a relief in tropical or desert environments.
Camping Shower FAQs
How do I set up the camping shower?
Simply attach the nozzle to the reservoir sack and fill the reservoir with clean freshwater. Then hang the shower up in the sun to heat the water and open the valve on the nozzle to allow the water to flow through the nozzle. The nozzle must be lower than the reservoir for the shower to work as it uses gravity.
How does the camp shower work?
The camp shower uses gravity to flow the water from the reservoir sack through the nozzle. The sack uses the sun’s energy to warm the water inside.
