Solar Power Shower – two hours of sunlight, 140 degrees of heat


This Solar Power Shower is a bit clever, seeing as in bright sunlight the base can heat 8 litres of water up to 140 degrees F in around 2 hours. Plug in your garden hose, adjust the mixers and you’ll have a nice temperate shower for very little energy cost. Thank you Mr Sunshine. $199.95.

 Just connect to your garden hose to fill the base to its 8-liter capacity. In less than 2 hours of sunlight, the water reaches 140°F! Use the mixing valve to blend heated water in the base with cold water from your hose to a pleasant 86-90°. You and your family can take several showers consecutively before the tank needs to reheat.
