I now use the same set up as Kerby with the two buckets and clamp on outlet. Here is a picture of my first set up I used for years.

No-pump hand wash system

Here is a picture of my gravity-powered hand wash system. It consists of 2 buckets and a feed scoop with a few holes drilled in it. I cut off the lip of the feed scoop to fit better into the upper tank bucket. Just dip the scoop into the upper tank bucket and hang using the handle.

It is inexpensive ($6 scoop at your local ranch store), light, works with any style of bucket and does not have parts to break, freeze or get mucked up with sand. Stack the buckets, drop the scoop and soap into the buckets and place in a medium-sized roll-top dry bag for a contained unit and last-minute loading on the boat.

It is old school for sure but it works great.

Visit your local market and go to the deli or bakery section and ask them for empty containers. Mayo, dressings and frosting etc. all come in typically smaller nesting containers with good lids. I have several shapes and sizes from different stores.

Here is my 4 gallon hand wash made from mayo buckets. 10" x 10" x 16" when packed and 32" high when set up at the spray nozzle.

Where do you stow the log on your boat?

Has anybody tried adapting a spray bucket (the kind you use with weed killer)? Where you would just prime it once and then use an on-off valve of some sort? Seems like it would work and be less expensive.

I've used a liquid laundry detergent dispenser (tip it on its side, press a button).

Not as good as a foot pump since you still have to push the button with a clean hand that you pushed with a dirty hand...but far better than nothing. Use the back of your hand for dispensing.

Works GREAT with hot water to clean grimy kids' camping hands...and use a squirt of hand sanitizer before eating.

That's a good idea, sounds handy for rinsing sand off a boat too.
