Re: Solar Shower for Aft Deck

I've got both, a hangup solar shower and a home made pump up shower (bug sprayer + sink veggie sprayer spliced in). I think that the sprayer I have is larger than the one pictured.

the pump up wins hands down. Its large enough for two showers. The pressure and spray pattern is much better than the gravity feed bag. I add a teapot of boiling water and it's downright luxurious.

Faster is right on, that the solar bag is more easily stowed. I tried lashing the pump up to the handrails on the cabin top ... then the stanchions ... I've ended up lashing the pump up sprayer on the outside of the stern rail, its out of the way and can stay there for cockpit showers.
