What types of outdoor showers are there?
Outdoor showers come in various forms. There are two main types – portable and stationary. Within these two main types of outdoor showers exists a few subsections:
- Portable, single hose – Are attached to a flexible hose and can be moved anywhere the hose can reach. These showers typically only use cold water.
- Portable, pedestal or tower –These showers are hooked up to an outdoor plumbing line and are less mobile than single hose models, but can use hot and cold water. Some may also be attached to a garden hose.
- Stationary – These showers are typically wall mounted and usually included in an enclosure for privacy. They must be attached to an outdoor plumbing supply. They offer more design versatility than the portable types, as stationary showers can customized with wood, tile and other textures.
