Basic plumbing for water

Trip 292

Two water tanks store 220 liters (48 gallons) of potable water under the bed platform. Fill connections are accessed from the side door.

To fill the tanks, a drinking water-safe hose with an in-line 100 micron filter will be used. The filter will reduce bad taste, odors, chlorine and sediment in the water going into the tanks and should also help prevent bacteria growth in the tanks. As the tanks can be filled independently, in the event a water source is questionable we’ll only fill one tank so that any contamination is isolated to one tank.

At the galley sink, water is pulled from the tanks with the use of a foot pump.

All drinking water will be purified on a daily basis using the MSR Guardian water filter. “Grey” water from the sink goes directly into a canister below.

The galley is good to go.

For simplicity we opted for a non-pressurized system and no hot water. What are we to do for a shower? Well, we’re going to give this portable camp shower a whirl.
