Outdoor Shower

my outdoor, on demand, rainwater shower. The solar panels moubted on the side of the shed charge a battery bank inside the shed that run the pump.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here and in the meantime some things have changed, mainly that we bought a house, have a huge garden and chickens (all things that I will dive into in later posts). What has not changed is that we are still dedicated to weening ourselves off of non-renewable energy, one small step at a time. So at our old place we had a very temporary on demand shower that used captured rain water but now I am doing the same thing in a much more permanent way by creating an outdoor shower that we can use all year long. As you can see I have the platform and curtain railings almost done and now it’s time for the piping. Stay tuned…
