With the warm weather now upon us in the north, many people are asking about outdoor showers. An outdoor shower can be useful in many different situations. Here are just a few outdoor shower ideas:
- An outdoor shower by the pool
- An outdoor shower to bring to the beach
- An outdoor shower for camping
- An outdoor shower for the cottage
The outdoor shower that you need will obviously be dependent on what you need it for. Clearly, if you are going to be wearing your bathing suit, then you will not necessarily need an outdoor shower enclosure or outdoor shower curtain. If you are thinking more of using your outdoor shower at the cottage or for camping then perhaps you might consider building an outdoor shower or diy outdoor shower.
Thankfully there are numerous types of outdoor showers available so perhaps just purchasing one that meets your needs may be easier than learning how to build an outdoor shower by yourself.
Portable Outdoor Showers
This poolside portable outdoor shower by Outdoor Lamp Company is a good example for an outdoor shower that you can use by the poolside or anywhere that there is a garden hose. The added feature of this one allows you to also wash your feet if you happen to have dirt or sand on them.
