Post Solar Shower
I just got a solar shower for wanee. Somebody with experience in this field tell me the best way to hang it, where'd be the best place to hang it, and is there a rule about run off water?

Hang it far enough away from anyone's tent and make sure you hang it high enough on a strong enough support.

Get yourself wet no long lingering showers, turn off to soap up, rinse hopefully you don't run out before you get all the soap off of you.

PS Don't expect this to get above luke warm in April.

Hang where the sun can reach it most of the day.....and shower in the afternoon...not late at night...or the water will be too cool.

For those "not so sunny" places in the woods... bring a small funnel, heat water to a warm temp, fill the bag... :) They heat up well if you place them on the hood of your car too, as long as it is parked in the sun... :roll:

We had one of those a few years back, it worked well... If I remember right it took more than one pressurization to get a shower out of it...
