Shower Stalls. Six modular, commercial shower stalls (1) are installed on each side of the container.
Each stall is serviced by an overhead shower valve (2) and a showerhead (3). A drain, a shower curtain,
and a soap bar holder are an integral part of the shower stall shell. Two aluminum end walls and lengths
of 2-inch angle stock along the container floor hold the showers stalls in place.

operated from an ON/OFF switch (6) located at the personnel entrance (7). Power is supplied through the
integral power cord which is connected to a 20A external socket on the power service panel.
Internal Lighting. Three twin 40-watt fluorescent light fixtures (8) are mounted on the ceiling of the
container along the center aisle to provide internal illumination. These lights are operated from an
ON/OFF switch (9) located at the personnel entrance door. In addition, the TEMPER internal lights and
shave stand individual lights provide illumination inside the TEMPER.
Sump Pump. A commercial sump pump (10) is mounted into the graywater holding tank (11) located at
the rear of the container. The sump pump evacuates accumulated graywater from the holding tank. It is
activated by a float switch when the accumulated graywater reaches a preset height within the tank and
deactivates when the water level falls to a preset level. It can also be manually activated to pump the tank
prior to packing either shower model.
Personnel Entrance Door. The personnel entrance door (7) is part of the shower stall retaining wall. It
permits entry into either shower model from the TEMPER tent.
Floor Mat. The rubber floor mat (12) covers the center aisle of the both models. It provides a non-slip
surface for shower users to enter and exit the shower safely.
Water Distribution System. In the Containerized Shower, internal water distribution system consists of
-inch copper hot and cold water lines leading from the water mixer valve (13) to the overhead shower
valves of the individual shower stalls (1). Later production Containerized Showers use flexible hose in
place of the copper water lines. For the Shower, Enclosed Unit, System, the water is distributed directly
into the -inch copper hot and cold water lines and controlled at the shower valves (2) and shave stand
sinks. At the personnel entrance end of the container, both hot and cold water lines end in quick
disconnect fittings (14) onto which the hot and cold water supply hoses for the shave stand sinks are
Graywater Holding Tank. Used water from the shower stalls (1) and shave stands flows through a drain
duct (15) into the graywater holding tank (11) located at the service end of the container. The tank has a
capacity of 100 gallons and is drained automatically during normal operation by the sump pump.
Equipment Mounting Platform (Containerized Shower only). The equipment mounting platform (16) is
bolted to mounting rails on the sides of the graywater holding tank (11). This serves as a platform for
mounting the M-80 water heater and the 30 gpm water pump in the Containerized Shower shipping
