At what height above outlet would a storage tank be needed to give a decent shower?
Trying to figure out where to put a water tower at camp.

For every 32 feet of elevation the ground water pressure rises 15 psig. Most people believe you need a minimum of 30 psig so to do this, the tower needs to be 64 feet above the highest water tap.

This gives good answers:
Basically (gleaned from that web site):
- any height where the tank-tap is above outlet will allow water to flow
- but for a shower, minimum ~22 m (~70 ft) from height of tank-tap to level of shower "floor"
- ideally ~30 m (~100 ft) from tank-tap to floor, will provide pressure roughly identical to typical house water pressure
