I may not need a shower every day, but I also don't want to take a shower with the water I used to take a shower with the last time I took a shower. Thanks, but no thanks.

Wow!

What a great idea

Why hasn't someone thought of it before?

Oh yeah

IT'S NASTY!

Don't you think if this was feasible that RV manufactures and even home builders would have done it long ago? That filter will become a petri dish after the first use.

The difference between this and a bath is you do not possibly forcibly spray dirty water into your eyes, ears, nose and mouth with a bath.

It might be interesting when your doctor prescribes jock itch meds for the rash on your face.

I have met this person. I envy his mini split A/C.

I think it is a great idea. You are using just a 1/2 gallon of water to take a nice, hot, long shower. You don't reuse the 1/2 gallon over and over. You just use it once and then maybe wash your motorcycle or rig with the used water. He also explains what soaps to use and how to add Epsom salt to the mix to separate out the soap from the filter.

I'm sorry, but how do you use "just a 1/2 gallon of water to take a nice, hot, long shower" unless you're using it over and over? If not, then you're using more than 1/2 gallon of water. Like has been said, nasty.

The two filters clean the water for it to be continuous. Besides all water is used over and over. I don't see why folks have such a problem with this idea. It's a prototype that can only get better and better as new ideas are added to it.

"I don't see why folks have such a problem with this idea." Because I also don't wash my face with water directly from my toilet.

It may only be a prototype, but it's still washing your face with water that just came off your butt. YUCK-O!

Butt, not within the last 30 seconds, and untreated to boot(y). [emoticon]

Proper filtration systems for cleaning gray water are bit more complicated and no doubt pricey
