Outdoor showers are becoming more popular in Sydney, with more homeowners adding an extra shower in the backyard near the pool or on the side entrance to wash off after the beach and get all the sand off! Not only do outdoor showers look amazing but they are also a great practical addition into the home.

Helpful Tips! 

Our lead plumber Kelvin gives us insight into what you should think about before you install an outdoor shower, Kelvin has installed outdoor showers across Sydney for over 10 years.

Materials: When selecting an outdoor shower it is important to select a material that is durable for the outdoor weather, Our most popular choice is  copper composite which assures durability, weather-resistant and easy to care for. Other finishes include chrome, brushed nickel and brushed brass. Depending on your allocated budget and landscaping design for the outdoor shower will determine which colour finish which would suit your home best.

Good drainage: This is key, as the last thing you want is for your sensational new shower to become a mud pit. We recommend a position with drainage where the water can run off too or we can position a floor waste. You will not be able to use your outdoor shower if you don’t take this into consideration. 

Privacy: No one likes showering in front of the neighbours, so selecting a position where it is a little private is our recommendation. Simple tricks include high fences, creating a wall to shower behind, or adding some greenery into your space. Whether you have a pool shower or a fully functioning outdoor bathroom, you’ll want privacy from neighbours.

Location: Prime location is essential when installing an outdoor shower. Choose a sunny spot that optimises the westerly afternoon sun.

We chose the side of the house as the best location, in the afternoon it receives the afternoon sun and some privacy from the neighbours.
