Watch: DIY Pressurized Solar Water Heater & Shower System

So you want a portable shower solution that will provide good water flow and warm water when you’re away from civilization? Well, you could pony up hundreds of bucks or you could settle for a plastic bag… or you could build your own, which is just what this guy did. In the end he has a nice solar-heated tank that rides atop his vehicle, which he can pressurize using a small portable air compressor. Add a short water hose with a spray nozzle, and you are in business.

The tools and materials he used are all pretty basic and should be easy to get. The only real snag I see would be when the water level gets low, a small compressor would have to work pretty hard to pressurize that big tube. But as Dad used to say, that’s a minor detail. Overall it looks like a great solution.

Check it out and let us know what you think:
