A portable, private shower which can be set up or packed down in around two minutes.
Shower from any fresh-water supply or set to recycle for a fabulously long soaking without wasting water.
How it Works
- Position the EverShower wherever and however you’d like – indoors, outdoors, roof on, roof off, with the frame or with overhead points of attachment.
Place the included 12 volt electric pump into your water source – inside the tub (drain closed), if recycling, or outside the tub (drain open) for continuous fresh water.
Use pre-heated water – solar, camp stove etc. – or for real luxury, a portable gas/L.P.G water heater.
- Hang the shower handset above for relaxing, hands-free showering.
- Switch on the pump, step in and enjoy one fabulously, long, private EverShower.
Another Awesome Aussie Invention!
For people who enjoy being clean as much as they enjoy getting dirty.
Frequently Asked Questions
For real luxury EverShower has been made compatible with several gas/propane water heaters such as Coleman’s Hot Water On Demand. For a continuous, steamy hot shower this is definitely the way to go. If you just want to take the chill off, however, then water can be pre-heated on the stove or campfire, poured into the tub and recycled. The free energy of the sun is also a good option. Just pour a few litres into the tub, enclose it with the heat-absorption cover and let the sun do its thing. In hot regions, of course, it may be preferable not to heat the water at all.

We’ve been using EverShower in the New Zealand snow and found it to be absolutely amazing. Even though it doesn’t feel like a small space when you’re inside, the tapered shape means the actual volume area is quite small. For this reason, when using it with the hot-water heater, it becomes hot and steamy in there very quickly. So much so, in fact, one often finds one’s self reluctant to get out. We were a bit spoilt because we also had a heater in a camper van but it did feel quite surreal to dry off, hot and steamy, inside the EverShower then step into a wonderfully heated camper van.
Yes, but only as one might in a bath. The recycling feature is an option for times when water is in short supply. If there’s plenty of water about then EverShower will perform just like a regular shower only with amazing space-saving and portability.
Also, if you are recycling but find the water too dirty or soapy, you might like to wash in three litres, for example, drain it, then pour in another three litres of clean water. You can then enjoy the clean recycled water for as long as you like using just six litres of water altogether.
Incidentally, there is increasing discussion of late about the benefits of showering without soap, or with very little soap.
Fresh water can come from any available source within reach of the EverShower pump or, for example, using a regular domestic, mains pressure water hose. When the EverShower is set to recycle the water the pump simply stays inside the tub, secured to it’s cradle. Water is then added to the tub itself (up to about 10 litres). When using the water heater, the pump also stays inside the tub if recycling. Water from the tub is simply pumped to the water-heater then up to the shower handset then back into the tub.
Yes. The tent-screen and tub retain the water within the EverShower system. Here’s an example of it being set up for use inside a small camper van, even though the van doesn’t have a very high ceiling. It can even be used inside a regular domestic bathroom, tub only, for massive savings in water and energy. Essentially it’s a washroom which can be packed quickly away into small draw – great for tiny houses, small apartments, offices, boats, caravans etc. Please follow manufacturer’s recommendations closely with regard to safe working environments for hot-water heaters.
EverShower has a surprising ability to function well even in windy conditions. It comes with four guy ropes and strong alloy pegs but in practice we’ve found that really only one guy rope has been necessary, in the direction of the wind and attached to an immovable object or just pegged into the ground.
The EverShower tub itself also incorporates four peg anchor points.
Obviously the weight of a person inside tends to keep it stable in the wind, however, if an un-pegged, empty shower does blow over in the wind, from our experience, the frame provides good protection for the fabric and once it’s laying down it’s actually a very aerodynamic shape, so tends not to travel any further.
In extreme conditions the tent can simply be unclipped from the frame, dropped into the tub and the cover attached. It this mode it is able to withstand some of the most horrendous conditions but ready to use next time in a flash.
The Coleman Hot Water On Demand incorporates a lithium iron battery which will power the water pump for around 80 minutes. The HWOD’s battery can be recharged via a motor vehicle cigarette lighter or 240v.
Adaptors are available which can enable the pump to be connected to a regular household power supply. View the 240V adaptor by Powertech.
There are also 12 volt battery packs which can be used virtually anywhere and recharged as necessary.
Many other water heaters also include their own rechargeable 12 volt power supply.
There are a few options: If there happens to be a drain in the floor then the EverShower can simply be positioned over it so that it corresponds with the drain in the EverShower tub. If there’s a drain or washbasin within reach of the shower handset then it’s just a matter of turning on the pump (just mop the last little bit out with a sponge-cloth). Alternatively, just release the tent screen (or drop it into the tub) and carry the tub outside or to a sink, for example.
The EverShower pump can be placed into any nearby fresh water source. The drain in the tub can be opened and the EverShower can then perform just like any regular shower. The Coleman water heater (and many other water heaters) can be connected directly to any garden hose (no pump required).
We’ve had some very heavy people using them and haven’t broken one yet. However, it is important that it be situated on a flat, even surface and, if there are sharp objects like gravel or stones, that matting be placed underneath.
The base measures 50.5 x 50.5 x 15 cm. The overall height when set up with the frame is approximately 220 cm. The width across the top of the tent is about 110 cm.

No. We sell the complete bundle ready to go. We also supply the EverShower on its own. The EverShower, without the heater, is still an independently, fully functioning shower. Many customer prefer to purchase the EverShower on its own because either, they already have their own water heater, they’re happy just to heat the water on a camp stove, they’re travelling to a warm climate where they do not require heating at all or they just want to see how it goes and may purchase a water heater later.
Yes it does. The saving in shipping costs would most likely make it much more economical to purchase the water heater locally.
The EverShower is made compatible with many different water heaters. We recommend the Coleman Hot Water On Demand, which is widely available around the world, but other heaters may be preferable depending on the intended use.
