Hour Shower?

I was just watching a you tube channel I like called CamperVan Kevin and thought some Escape owners especially you guys that make my head spin with all the things you do to your Escapes and make me jealous.
Pretty cool invention this guy has created, a shower that uses your grey water by filtering it, really neat idea and he is willing to tell you how for free. He honestly sounds like he wants to help people.
Hope you enjoy it.

Enjoy the journey.

Steve

Hour-Shower??

We have seen that a couple of times on YT
. I was mainly wondering what he does w the filtered mess he must get each time..The blue inline filters don't seem to me to have the capacity or efficiency to handle daily multiple "showers" ....much less gallons of gray water. From what I have seen, I'd be thinking I'd better boondock near a big hardware store or in the parking lot of a Lowes.
I think we will wait til a really simple commercial version comes out.

He has no interest in selling them, will tell you how and what it takes just because he wants to help people. That being said I think your wrong comparing this person to a 'snake oil salesman'
Still think the idea is pretty good and better then most other options because this conserves water. Did you watch the entire video? He knows people that are 100 uses into a filter, him included.

Enjoy the journey.

It certainly is interesting, but not something I would personally want. Still limitations on black tank, propane and food that force you into a trip to town when extended boondocking. I take pretty good showers when boondocking and just refill fresh tank from collapsible containers in the truck which get refilled when in town.
Iím more interested in his mini-split and Lithium setup.
