% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This article is taken from Five Gallon Ideas, which features over 100 uses for 5 gallon buckets with more being added all the time.

Did you know you can build a shower out of a five gallon bucket? Well, now you do. There are many different methods to go about this. You could of course simply stick little holes in the bottom of your bucket for a very low-tech method, but we’ll show you a better method after the jump.

The bucket-shower you see above was designed by KGB survivalist, who explains how to build this shower step by step in his video embedded below.

Using a standard five gallon bucket, a valve and some additional equipment he manages to build quite a nice shower. If this looks like too much work for you however, we have a better solution: A portable shower! This shower is battery powered and merely has to be stuck in a source of clean water to spray your body.

Worth mentioning is that the battery-powered shower is very easy to recharge. Its USB Charge allows you to simply charge it in your car or using a laptop, making it very useful when you go out traveling somewhere. It’s also a good idea to take with you when you go camping, in addition to the other great suggestions we have for supplies to take with you when you go camping.

      :idea: Some of these camp showers are supposedly black, to help warm the water, in the sun.

      This works much better if you add a pipe inside the bucket that goes from the pvc outlet straight up above the water level to the top of the bucket. It will increase the water pressure 10 times. The way he does it, will create a vacuum that slows down the flow. Learned this by experience.
