I thought I would share my backup shower. It did get brought out, once, this winter when the power to the water heater failed. It can be heated on the wood stove, propane heater or my rocket stove. It uses little water because its not constantly running. Pump to get wet. Soap up. Pump to rinse. Repeat if necessary. When you find yourself having to haul water by hand or its in short supply, this antique fire extinguisher is a goddess send. They can be purchased for 20-40$. You may have to put a bit of vasiline inside the pump if you are not getting pressure. That's all for now.

I might as well show the rocket stove along side. No electricity? No propane? No problem
