The shower? Yazz had found a system that used propane bottles, the same you use for camp stoves. It was a little tricky to start, but once you had it going it worked just fine. The "tank" held five gallons, which is actually more then what you want anyone using if you just budgeted 2 gallons of water per day for everyone in the camp :)

Was the pump not running well? I found that the batteries would go low in it, and people wouldn't know that they needed to be changed.

The pump and the propane both died immediately after I got into the shower on burn night.

I decided against showering that evening. :)

Hey Brian,
Suzanne here. Very cool system you have there. Wondering if you would be able to modify the shower system to include a gray water treatment system? Then you could take a nice long shower on the playa and wouldn't that be delicous?

Sorry to have missed you out there!

I just spent my morning writing out notes on how to solve the treatment problem :)

The solution I have would require me to spend about $30 per 200 gallons of water but... that really is nothing when it comes down to, at least for me, my love of showers.
