    not sure where to put this, so here it is

    I saw a thread on here about nobody really using the 110V outlet in the bed, and I had 2 of these laying around from my aquarium days

    5 gallons ea.
    During the drought my local beach shut the water off, then with the king tides we had last year combined w/ heavy surf, the showers were reclaimed by mother nature. I figured I could put them to use. There are products out there, but i am cheap and wanted to re-purpose the jugs.
    I ordered this pump

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01987QDKQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    and this switch
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AWR6NCY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    i had this laying around as well

    and this from and old router
    upload_2017-8-16_9-5-26.jpg
    you can see its output is rated at 12V-1.0A
    i think the pump is rated at 1.5A so i might be losing a little juice, but its what i had. Also the pump is pretty small(see pic) you guys w/ rotopax depending on how/where they are mounted might be able to just drop this in

    Nice one. I just did my own take on a shower - posted on my build thread. Like you, wasn't sure where to put it - hahaha!

    Installed a shower on the back this weekend. Hopefully come in handy pretty quick here. ​
