The other night we reassembled the portable shower. This time I put Panasonic Alkaline batteries into the sump pump and it made a huge difference compared to Walmart “Great Value” brand batteries, and an even greater one compared to Dollarama Zinc Carbide batteries. We were actually able to pump water a couple feet higher than the reservoir.
I put a pail on the stand beside the sink, and poured some nice warm water over the pump.

I had to crouch, which was a bit uncomfortable, so I’d look into mounting the shower head higher. I also wish I was able to shut off the flow of water from inside – I think a pull chain type arrangement would be perfect.
