The folks over at PreparednessAdvice.com recently included a post on a real world example of a solar shower. It’s a short post with only one image but, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. What I liked about the post is that it included both a bit of simplicity (using the sun’s rays and a rain barrel) and some modern technology (actual plumbing and a solar pump). The post also noted how the person who built the shower had to modify the design to increase efficiency. I think I would have also included a privacy fence where you shower but if you live in the middle of nowhere then who’s watching besides the deer?
