DIY CAMP SINK - Foot Pump Operated Hand Washing Station

This year (2020) has brought with it many new challenges and one of those has been excessive hand washing to keep everyone safe. We built this camp sink so everyone could wash up and keep clean. The sink consists of a foot pump and does not require electricity to operate. It's easy to setup and the whole thing packs back down inside the buckets.
