I used to use a solar shower like this one to shower during the summer, but it was awkward and did not hold up very well.
Eventually I turned to my local lake to shower, which has worked out really well. However, temps are starting to drop and, let's face it, I would much rather shower at home. I spent some time researching different styles of camp showers and I found this magnificent item. For just $40 I have a steady flow of water! It is even rechargeable via USB. More about that later.

Next, I bought the largest diameter Hula Hoop I could find at my local discount store. The one I got measures 36" in diameter. Using screws with large, flat heads, I screwed the Hula Hoop to the rafters.
Next, I added two clear shower liners. I was lucky that they were the perfect length and I didn't need to cut them. I slid the stock tank under the shower curtains and heated up a bucket of water by adding a kettle of boiling water to room temperature water. I hung up the shower head using the hook that came with it. I was really beginning to anticipate a nice hot shower at home!
I pulled the shower curtains into the tub with me and put the bucket of hot water in as well. I dropped the pump portion of the portable shower head into the hot water bucket and proceeded to take a glorious shower.
What do you think? Not bad, eh? I tell ya, it may not look like much, but finally being able to shower at home is a great feeling!
