Don’t just stop with an outdoor hot spigot for your hose, go all in with an outdoor shower. Add the feel of a tropical vacation to your home or simply add the convenience of
- rinsing off before / after jumping into the pool
- showering after yard work
- getting kids clean (along with their wet and muddy clothes)
- cooling down on a hot summer day
- staying warm when washing off snow and muck
- cleaning up after a long run or exercise
Check local building codes for drainage requirements before installing an outdoor shower. If your municipality doesn’t require a drain, you may want to still consider putting one in to help keep large amounts of water away from your foundation.
Pro-tip: Locate your outdoor shower near an existing hose bib or on a plumbing wall where hot and cold water pipes are already in place.
