Green Ideas: A Great Solar Powered Shower

Anyone with a pool knows the drill. Right after a dip in the pool, you need to take a quick shower. While there are other systems out there, this is the first that we've seen that will heat the water with solar energy so that you won't have to rush your shower. Also, this is something handy to have on camping trips.

Once you fill the tank at the bottom of this Solar Power Shower, all you need to do is to place it in a sunny spot. Two hours later, you can have a hot shower! In a swimming pool and garden setting, you can connect your garden hose and mix the hot water with colder water. This lets a few people take hot showers. That's pretty cool.

This enables you to take some nice showers in the garden or while camping. Sure cold water really wakes you up and soothes sore muscles, but there's nothing like taking hot showers, especially if you are cold. Like all outdoor showers, this will keep your bathtub clean and lets you avoid getting itchy from all that chlorine. It also saves you pennies and dimes on your water and power bill. The Solar Power Shower costs $200 and is available at Herrington.
