Fill it with water, put it in the sun, pump
it up and you have a wonderful shower for the cockpit of
your boat or anywhere you camp or cruise.
Sandra and I had these custom made by the
folks at RL Flowmaster.We developed the
idea after boating and camping for years with cheap gravity
fed solar showers. One day we thought, why not a pump-up
shower? So we went to Home Depot and bought a hand held
sprayer like you see on kitchen sinks and a pump-up type
bug sprayer. The latter came with a misting head that is
no good for showers, but the kitchen sprayer had a spring
loaded valve and the perfect spray pattern. We then married
the two together and found we had created the perfect solar
After using this shower for a while we decided
to approach some of the sprayer manufacturers about putting
such an item on the market. In our research, we discovered
that RL Flowmaster had a suitable shower head and black
two gallon pump-up tanks but had not wed the two. In talking
to them we found that they would be happy to do so for us
in an exclusive deal. So you will find these amazing showers
no where but here at Duckworks.
Not long ago, we went on a cruise on Lake
Powell with Jim Thayer and his Kokopelli group. Somehow
in our excitement, we forgot our shower and ended up buying
a solar shower at Wal-Mart on the way to Utah. After a week
of using that gravity-fed solar shower, I have renewed appreciation
for the pump-up shower we have been using for all these

Dear Sandra and Chuck,
The solar shower arrived this afternoon. Sadly, owing to the prevailing cloudy skies here in England, I was unable to test the "solar" part, but by filling it with a kettle of hot water, I can confirm that the "shower" part is very satisfactory! It's nice to think I won't have to wrestle with the plastic bag camping shower again.
Thanks for the prompt delivery and all round good service.
In Stony Stratford,
My wife and I just spent 4 days moored at Angel Island in San Francisco Bay. We finally had a chance to use your solar shower. It is far superior to solar bags I've used. One day it did not heat up enough, so I took your suggestion and added some hot water to it. It worked so well that my wife actually enjoyed taking a shower in the cockpit of our boat. There's is nothing like a shower in the open air.
Thanks for the great product,
Chuck Pierce took one of our showers on the 2011 Texas200. Here is a picture:
