Tips for Putting In an Outdoor Shower

Summertime is here and it’s a great time to think about adding an outdoor shower!

Here are few tips to consider before putting in an outdoor shower:


Where do you want to put your outdoor shower?

The location you choose will likely depend on your intended use. Some locations you might consider include your garden or next to the pool. For ease, you might want to place your outdoor shower on the side of the house, and near a door for easy access.


What style appeals to you?

Outdoor showers can come in any variety you can imagine. You’ll want to make your outdoor shower match your personal style. You might like a more natural look, choosing to incorporate rock walls, lining it with wood panels, or surrounding it with foliage. Or, a more minimalist, modern design may appeal to you.


How much privacy do you need?

You’ll want to consider building a shower that’s open vs. private. If there’s the potential a neighbor might catch a glimpse while you shower, you may want to plan to enclose it with a tent, shower curtain, or built-in wall – especially if you intend to use it as a regular shower and not just a place to wash off after swimming. If you’re fortunate enough to have a private backyard, you might choose to keep the area open.


How eco-friendly do you want it to be?

Your shower can be however “green” you want it to be – from low-flow showerheads to gray water recycling capability. Design your outdoor shower to match your eco-aesthetic. Make a plan for preventing leaks and make sure any hardware and plumbing is easy to access.


Extra Details and Accessories?

Consider what accessories to include to make your shower more user-friendly. Ideas include benches, towel hooks, and a shower caddy. You might even think about adding lights.


Remember, your outdoor shower is, well, outdoors, and harsh weather conditions can corrode materials and cause damage to the outdoor plumbing. You’ll want to be prepared to keep your outdoor shower properly maintained throughout the year.
