Outdoor shower set up!

Summer is fast approaching and one of the things I wish I built was an outdoor shower for my kids! But the idea passed by as I was too busy swimming with my boys and the misus. So in the excellent tradition of hindsight and if onlys. I give you my dear workmates the opportunity to create the "Gold coast special" as my son called it. 

 

Parts list :

2 x 20mm pvc pipes at 1 meter long each

1 x 20 mm gate valve

2 x 20 mm female couplers with one side with a male threaded end.

1 x 20mm 90 degree elbow

1 x 20mm 90 degree elbow with one end with a threaded female end.

1 x 20mm brass nipple.

1 x 20mm to 15mm brass nipple

1 x 20mm coupler with one side with a threaded female end.

 

Now I'm sure some of you creatives out there are thinking "I've got a better idea" by all means have at it! This is just a suggested lay out if you have a more creative approach don't let me stop you. Whats important is that we build it and enjoy it for the summer! PSX_20181111_095840.jpgClip on the garden hose and enjoy!

Not as DIY but you get warm water and it comes in 3 sizes if this small one isn't big enough.

I'm a bit too soft to have a cold shower, even after a swim! 

 

We weren't sure whether to install an outdoor shower as part of our games room and pool project but two years on have found we use it a lot. You can see it in the photos here - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Outdoor/Backyard-games-room-project/td-p/93/page/3
