    I'm about to lose access to my shower for a few months, and it doesn't
    look like a gym membership is in the cards. Can anybody recommend a
    very inexpensive and very short temporary shower module that I can
    hook up in my basement? I'd love to avoid having to invest in an
    ejector pump.

    Thanks! Crispin

    Ejector pump??
    Do you mean there is no place to drain the water to in the basement?

    I can picture a very large galv washtub you could stand in,
    using a handheld shower wand to wash with. Plastic curtains
    hung from the ceiling would drape into the washtub.

    How about a large plastic garden sprayer, as described in "Water Conservation
    and the Mist Experience," $3? from the Minimum Cost Housing Group/School of
    Architecture/McGill University/3480 University Street/Montreal, Quebec H3A 2A7/
    Canada, (514) 398-6723. Their pamphlet describes ways of making very low-flow
    mist showers with water consumptions of 1 pint per hour (Bucky Fuller's :)
    and up. You might collect the water in a laundry tub.

    I was just going to recommend the camping section of any store. They have
    3 gal. bag showers for campers.

    It works, I used to shower in the basement standing in a tub with a
    bucket of cold water and a coffee pot of hot water (no enclosure)

    Why not set one up outdoors? Not all that difficult to do,
    inexpensive, and no water mess in the basement.
