A portable shower and pop-up tent combo will be a valuable resource during your next camping stint. Stop by a local sporting goods store that features a wide range of camping gear. Purchase the combo unit and other travel accessories that you will need while showering.
The Use A Shower Unit
A remote region may not feature an adequate water source that you can use to clean your body. On the occasions when you will be backpacking out into a remote region, access to a shower will be well-appreciated. A portable shower unit is a self-contained product that includes a shower apparatus, a portable water source, and a privacy enclosure.
The Model Type
Sporting goods retailers sell shower products that are ideal for adults and children. A gravity-fed shower model contains a pump. The pump provides pressure, which triggers water to be released.
A solar-powered shower model converts the sun's energy. A black-colored water pouch absorbs the sun's rays. The water heats up throughout the day. Tap and shower release valves dictate how quickly water is released from the pouch.
A portable shower unit that contains a hot water heater will require the use of a battery or a propane tank. This type of shower unit will contain plumbing connection pieces that will secure a battery or tank directly to the water source.
The Stall's Features
A portable shower unit that is designed to be used with a pop-up tent is lightweight and easy to assemble. A sporting goods store may feature shower stall floor models that you can view up close.
First, assess the material that a pop-up tent is made of. A pop-up tent will contain a framework that will be attached to the corners of the fabric. Neoprene, plastic, and vinyl are waterproof materials that a pop-up structure is often constructed of.
A shower stall manufacturer may feature a line of pop-up products containing UV-resistant fabrics. These types of fabrics will repel the sun's rays. If you are going to be using your new shower stall in an area that receives full sunlight, a UV-resistant coating will maintain the enclosure's interior temperature.
Built-in pockets and pouches that are inside a pop-up shower stall can be used to store washcloths, shampoo, and other essentials. After deciding which shower and tent combo to purchase, shop for travel hygiene products that you will need when showering.
