10/12/2021 – Blog
There is a lot for you to consider when it comes to having outdoor shower fixtures installed. From the positioning of the shower to the water pressure, the type of material, the location. The list is varied and quite long. However, one thing you definitely need to think about is the shower fixtures you will use. After choosing the best option, you may even be able to set up your new shower on your own! In this blog post, we will reveal everything you need to know about the different options available to you.
Freestanding Outdoor Shower Fixtures
There are many different styles of shower fixtures to choose from. Freestanding showers are incredibly popular when it comes to outdoor systems. This is a standalone fixture that attaches to an in-built shower tray or directly to the ground. This is a kind of unit that will give you the ability to have a shower installed anywhere you like, be it in a remote location or a garden area. No walls are needed for this option!
For this type of shower, the water supply must be set up before the installation. The mounting hardware will directly attach to the surface the shower is set on. For this reason, it may be necessary to drill directly into the concrete to create a sturdy foundation for the shower.
Wall-Mounted Outdoor Showers
If a freestanding outdoor shower does not sound like a good fit, you may want to think about going for a wall-mounted shower. This will attach directly to the wall of your home, fence, or any other type of solid structure. Fortunately, these units are easier to install when compared with a freestanding outdoor shower. These do not need to be anchored into the concrete; as a result, the plumbing connections are much easier to complete.
A shower panel is one of the most popular types of wall-mounted shower fixtures. This is an all-in-one outdoor shower fit, which can have luxury features added, like rainfall shower heads, hand showers, and jets. Discuss your options with an experienced installer today.
Advanced Outdoor Shower Systems
Another option is to have a shower system installed. This is more complex than simply having a shower faucet installed. With this approach, you will have multiple water outlets. For outdoor showers, this typically includes an overhead shower fixture and then there are a number of body sprays that are installed into the wall. Body sprays make the most of high pressure jets to give you a massaging outdoor shower experience.
