How quick is it to assemble?
The shack can be assembled in less than an hour by a single person. We are able to provide assistance or a quick "how-to" on your first shack.
How is the water heated?
The water is heated by a gas heater, which is simply connected to a propane bottle.
What if I don't have running water?
We recommend companies such as Water Direct who are able to supply clean, potable water across the UK. This could be a 1000 litre supply, suitable for small groups, or a huge 30,000 litre tanker for big events.
How to control temperature
The temperature of the shower can be managed by the user, so you can adjust the water to suit your preferences. Inside the shower, there will be a full set of instructions, plus the safety notices. Of course, the water can get very hot and you do have to use it at your own risk, so we recommend starting on the cooler side and turning the temperature up slowly- "OOH" is a better sound than "ARGH"!
How easy is it to transport?
It packs down into a pallet measuring 2m l x 1m w x 0.5m h and weighs 150kg. It can be transported easily in a small van or pickup, and you can load up to four on a 12ft trailer.
Where can you deliver them to?
We can deliver them to customers across the world on a van or pallet delivery depending on quantity. We will always work out the lowest possible cost for delivery so we can provide quotations on request.
How can we ensure the safety and quality of the water?
As long as you are using fresh running water, there is very little chance of waterborne diseases such as Legionnaires disease. Running the tap for a few minutes before use should clear out any stagnant water that's been sitting in the pipes.
With stored water, the supply should be kept below 20°C to prevent Legionella activity. The water supply should be refreshed at least weekly, without being allowed to stagnate and suitably chlorinated. All shower heads and hosepipes should regularly be descaled and disinfected.
How can you ensure the waste water doesn't harm the environment?
Not only do we supply and recommend eco-friendly shower products that have naturally low levels of phosphates and other chemicals that may affect the environment, but the water collection tray features various filters to remove both particulates and phosphates, to ensure that we're not introducing any unwanted nutrients into the ecosystem. Without making this paragraph any longer than it already is, we'll sum it up with a handy, if not very catchy slogan:
"Eutrophication: It's bad and we're not going to cause it."
With regards to chlorine levels, these can also cause damage to the environment if too high. Fortunately the safe levels of chlorine to kill most pathogens are already present in tap-water, so a Shower Shack will really have no more environmental impact than a garden hose.
