I am looking for ideas on a DIY self contained shower for the deer lease
We have electricity but no running water.
First thought is to just build a small wood frame 4 x ? room and get one of those $150 Zodi showers.
Second thought is similar to above but get a water tote some type of fluid pump and a point of contact water heater/shower.
Any ideas?
Thanks,

if ya got electricity but no water, put up some gutters on the house, run them into a container that will hold the water, and run one of them tankless water heaters to it with a water pump. Now you got a hot shower. I would recomend not drinking it if its in one of them tanks unless you know how to treat it.....I don't and wouldn't. Should work out. Anybody else?

24 buds thanks for the input, I like the point of contact idea the best. I should of been a little more explanatory, we do not need to collect water as I can get water from the land owners house just up the road. the problem I have is the poc heater says it can work off of 20 to 80 PSI but there is no direct cross formula from GPM this puts out 1.5 to the a PSI rating all it says is a 12 volt demand pump. I am trying to figure out how to convert all of this mess to a 110v system.

I use a Eccotemp L5 with a 12 volt RV water pump on my floating cabin. It works great!
Hook up your water line to it, a bottle of propane, and 2 D cell batteries. The best price I found was at sportsmansguide.

If you have electricity, this will work too.

I took a 55 gallon drum and put a regular outdoor water faucet on it. I then went and found a pvc screw cap with a hole to screw another fitting into the cap. In that fitting, for the other hole, I took a tire pressure nozzle and fitted it into the fitting and then screwed it all together.

I now have a 55gallon drum that can be pressurized. I have a generator and a pancake compressor and take that with me. I pressurize the drum with the compressor, put a hose on the fawcet, get a regular yard sprayer and wah-lah, I have a shower like home (kinda)!

Now, for the cold days, you can make a little stand to keep the drum on and under the barrel, on the stand, you can put metal flashing and put a fire under the flashing to heat the drum and the water...

It works GREAT and I got the drum for free. All I had to buy was the acessories...About 25.00... It was a simple deal that works awesome and it was cheaper than any solar shower I could find.

If you have to buy the compressor or the generator, its costs a little more but we use the water for bathing, cleaning, etc...

I made an awesome one for the old ranch crawfish pot on the smoker during the day with a thermometer when it gets to 105* pull it off and put it on the stand drop in a pond pump from home depot with the pvc fittings it was like 70 bucks put a valve in the middle to turn it on and off till you dry off then un plug it....
