    Outdoor patio/pool shower?

    I want to add some kind a shower out on my patio near my pool. I have good drainage including two drains on my patio, also if I offset it, it has a natural drain off my patio into my lot near a French drain. Does anybody have some kind of freestanding or other type of shower they might recommend? I can either run PVC or just hook up a hose for water supply. Any recommendations or pictures would be great.
    Thx

    I don't have any answers but what sort of a heater were you going to use for the water?

    Really, honestly I would Google 'diy poolside shower'. I just did and there are hundreds of great ideas.

    I was just going to use water from the hose bib, normally it's hot enough outside where I do not need warm water.

    Thanks I will research it some, I was hoping maybe somebody had something already set up that they could share from their experience.

    Even though it has been 90+ for much of the summer here that would only work for about 30 seconds as our line water is pretty chilly.

    Right now we what we have been doing is just using the hose nozzle. The water in the hose is pretty warm and we usually can get rinsed off by the time the cold water works it way through the hose.(100' hose) in fact, it's almost too hot in some cases. Even when colder water gets there I find it kind of refreshing, although I might think different once the weather cools off a bit! Lol I would just like to find something a little easier and more permanent than using the water hose to rinse off with. I will attach a picture I found online that I think is pretty cool. Still looking for ideas if anybody has any.

    Re: Outdoor patio/pool shower?

    I have a small 120V electric water heater that I use to provide hot water for my pool cabana. It is only about 2.5 gallons but it is enough to wash hands, BBQ tools, etc. But I may run the water line ouside the cabana for a shower as well. But if I was to do it again I would buy a small 110V tankless heater.

    Thanks, that's good advice. Any chance you can post pictures of your cabana? I just like seeing other set ups to get ideas.

    Re: Outdoor patio/pool shower?

    Here is a photo of my cabana:
    pool cabana.jpg
    The right side is a bar/kitchen with fridge, microwave, TV, stereo, sink and some cupboards. The left side is for storage of furniture cushions, pool toys, chemicals, vacuum hoses, etc. And just above the TV you can see the white Wifi hotspot so that I have a good wifi signal by the pool as well. The TV is on an extendible arm and is placed back inside the cabana and the doors drop down to protect it from the weather. I bring all of the electronics inside for the winter.

    There is no place better than to watch the Olympics then from inside the pool.

    I bought this water heater. Propane, tankless, battery ignition, hooks to a garden hose, under 100 bucks. On season 2 works great. Pics in my build thread.

    Outdoor patio/pool shower?

    Nice set up!
    I also ordered that water heater last night..... Based on your review and everybody else's, it seems like the ticket as I have a perfect spot for it.

    Re: Outdoor patio/pool shower?

    Thanks! Yep, it is the bomb.com! Hot water all day! And it doesn't use much propane, I'm on the same BBQ grill tank a year later and we have 4 people using it, even for regular showers on nice days.

    Outdoor patio/pool shower?

    Received it today took about 30 minutes start to finish to set it up. Already used it, I can't believe how fast it heats up water. I am going to eventually plumb in it's on water supply, for now I just have a hose running to it. Planters conceal it pretty good ....Natural run off as well....

    One more showing the water pressure, it's fantastic.

    Re: Outdoor patio/pool shower?

    I did have to replace the connection for my water hose to the unit, it wasn't leaking but the flange was so close fit in the Nut bushing it kept coming out, simple three dollar fix. It only came off if I was adjusting / moving the hose, but I could not take the chance of leaving it on in case it were to come loose on its own and run water freely. That said, I have used this thing multiple times daily and can't imagine not having it.
