The Mirror reported in 2020 that while constructing a new home in West Yorkshire during lockdown, Dave Eastwood and partner Helen, had to live in their garage. This meant that they only had access to a shower, and Helen in particular was missing her relaxing bath. This fact had been mentioned more than once to Dave, who eventually decided enough was enough. The result was a makeshift jacuzzi to keep her happy, fashioned out of….yes you guessed it, the bucket part of a dumper.
Ignoring any rust that may be present, Dave provided a temporary lockdown spa experience by filling the bucket with water and shower gel. In the absence of electricity, bubbles were created using a hand drill fitted with a plastering attachment to drive air into the liquid. Once the water was heated, the retired childminder ascended via a ladder, and sat enjoying a glass of wine and a long awaited soak. The water was heated naturally by the sun, which took a few days.
Passers by commented on how nice it looked, and Helen joked she may look at renting it out once the house was finished. After the bath, the water was used to water the plants, so nothing went to waste. Dave said “After almost two years of nagging I had finally had enough and told her ‘she would have one very soon’ and that’s when I started filling the dump truck up.
“She absolutely loved it so, for just a little bit of water and one bottle of bubble bath, it’s saved me a lot of earache.”The best part is you can just drive it round so it’s always in the sun. You just have to go slowly so the water doesn’t spill”
Of course at Rhinos we don’t advise you to use our dumper trucks in this way, but it shows how versatile they are for your projects in Watford!
