As a separate system, the Containerized Shower is shipped with the M-80 water heater, 30 gpm water
pump, exhaust fan, all necessary water hoses and power cables, two disassembled shave stands, and
the 16-foot TEMPER with modified end wall stored inside the ISO container. At least four soldiers are
required to unpack the Containerized Shower in preparation for use.
Lift and Move the Shower Container
Ensure that all personnel are clear of the work area when moving the container. The
shower container weighs approximately 10,000 pounds. If the container falls, it may
cause serious injury or death to personnel or damage to the equipment.
With a 10,000-pound rated forklift, position the shower container (1) at its intended location. If the 16-foot
TEMPER section is to be used, position the container so that there is sufficient space to erect and
connect it to the personnel door end of the container.
The shower container must be level for proper operation and to prevent damage to the
equipment. The shower container is sufficiently level when water poured in the center
aisle trickles towards the service end of the container. Leveling may be done with
available scrap materials, such as large stones, bricks, or wood, placed at the corners.
