My Poor Mans Zodi Shower
Thought I would share my project for today....kind of proud of it....
My Cub Scouts HATE the cold showers at summer camp (ok, so do I)....they are fed from Arkansas springs....they are cold!!!
So I was our local camping store a while ago and they had a Zodi pump on clearance for $5. It is a small pump, a 4D cell battery pack, and a shower head. It puts out just under 1 GPM...
I had some old copper tubing - I wrapped about 12 turns inside an old coffee can, and then hooked the Zodi pump inline. It made a nice heat exchanger and the old Coleman stove heats the water close to 20 degrees.
If I fill the bucket, then put the shower head in there and recycle the water for about 15-20 minutes, it gets pretty warm and then makes about a 90o shower. I took a 15 gallon chlorine bucket and make it my water source and lasts close to 20 minutes.
Anyway - I dont really need it - but it was a fun project!
Any other suggestions welcome on improvements.
