Outdoor Shower Made Easy

Sometimes it seems impossible for kids to stay outdoors for even a few minutes without getting dirty. This clever and inexpensive shower hooks up to a regular garden hose and heats water to 86 degrees using solar power. Sunlight hits the base's transparent lid, and then, similar to a green house, solar radiation is trapped inside, heating 16 gallons of water in two hours, enough for eight consecutive two-minute showers. It is 6 feet 6 inches high and delivers 9 psi.
