    Default Need outside shower plans

    I know there are many threads on this, however I am looking for one in particular. Last Fall I went fishing in Seward near Thumb Cove. There at the forest cabin there was a set-up like I have never seen and what to know how to make it. Maybe someone knows of a contraption as such that I will try to explain and g post the full details on what is needed.
    OK: it was a five gallon bucket that you poured a mixture of hot and cold wat to suit your liking. The actual hose and shower head is what is confusing. It was a normal showerhead like you see in RV use with that type of hose. However I forget how it was connected to the bucket. What I do remember is that it went in from the top, not drilled in the bottom.as it sat in the bottom of the bucket it had some peices attached. It had a "U" connected to the shower hose and sat in the bottom. What the pieces were I don't remember. You were however able to shut off the supply via the button on hte head. So I ask you, how does this contraption work? and how do I make one? It obviously is some kind of syphon action going on. I also know that it has to be higher than the person taking the shower, so gravity plays a part. so does the "U" act as the syphon starter? I just don't know the sizes of the things, does anyone?
    Thanx,
    Mike

    WELL, IT'S OUTDOORS OF THE CABIN! SORRY, JUST WANTED TO SHOW YOU OUR SETUP.SHOWER,UTILITY SINK & WRINGER WASHER. IN MY OPINION, TANKLESS PROPANE( WITH 12 VOLT,55PSI PUMP) IS THE WAY TO GO.YOU CAN CHOOSE TEMPS. FROM 98- 140 DEGREES! TAKES 45 SECONDS TO REACH DESIRED TEMP. STILL IN THE FINISHING STAGE,(PAINT ETC.) BUT OPERABLE. PEX TUBING & " SHARK" SLIP CONNECTS ARE AWESOME!! POWER & INSULATED WATER LINES RUN OVER TO CABIN INSIDE 3 IN. ABS. HERE'S PICTURES OF IT.

    I like the looks of your plumbing it looks like a abstract art peice. The main thing is that it gets the job done. Is this just a summer set up or do you have it set up for winter?
