How To Choose The Right Outdoor Shower?

Beautiful outdoor spaces can enhance your property’s overall value and improve your daily life. Adding a simple, sleek shower to your outdoor space offers many benefits and unlimited design opportunities. Outdoor showers make your life easier, so you can rinse off under the sun or stars in style. You can install an outdoor shower in a garden, backyard, terrace, open-air bathroom, wetroom, outdoor gym, private beach club, on a yacht, beside a swimming pool, hot tub or sauna. The main types of outdoor showers are freestanding, hanging and wall mounted. Freestanding outdoor showers provide the most flexibility and best design possibilities. You can choose to install the freestanding outdoor shower almost anywhere you desire, such as your garden, or even in a remote area, as you do not need to attach it to a wall. Now let’s take a look at some simple steps and tips to help you narrow down your options, and find the right outdoor shower to fulfill your practical and design needs.

Choose A Weather Resistant Material

Firstly, narrow down your options by only looking at outdoor showers, which are made of the best weather resistant materials. It is important to choose a high-quality material to save you time and unnecessary hassle on maintenance and repairs. The best material for outdoor showers is Marine Grade Stainless Steel AISI 316L. This low carbon stainless steel alloy is considered among the most durable and corrosion-resistant materials on the market. Outdoor showers made of this material will remain in impeccable condition all year round, even near the sea or swimming pool, as it is resistant to salty water and chlorine.

AISI 316L stainless steel surpasses the highest quality requirement, while also displaying sleek and versatile aesthetics. Featuring a simple and minimalist design, our exclusive collection of beautiful outdoor showers perfectly blends in with any existing outdoor theme or decor.

Make Sure Your Shower Has These Important Features

After choosing the best quality material for your outdoor shower, you then need to make sure it includes some important features to meet your practical needs and suit your climate. 

  • Anti-Limestone Nozzles
    All of Aquatica’s outdoor showers include anti-limestone nozzles. Even if there is a lot of limestone in your water, the anti-limescale nozzles prevent limescale formation, and the marine grade steel material makes sure the limestone does not impact functionality or the shower’s appearance. The nozzles are also super easy to clean and maintain.
  • Integrated Water Emptying System 
    An automatic antifreeze emptying system is extremely useful, if you are looking to install an outdoor shower in a wet room or out by your exterior spa. This is also an important feature, if you are installing the outdoor shower in a location with a high latitude. 
  • Rain Effect
    Aquatica’s outdoor showers provide a special rain effect. This offers a refreshing, rainforest-like experience and ensures full body coverage and even distribution for the best possible shower. 

Select The Right Width & Height

After selecting the right material for your outdoor shower, then it is time to choose the right height and width to fulfill your design and practical needs. Choose the right width for the outdoor shower based on your desired style. If you’re looking for a freestanding outdoor shower with a sleek, minimalist appeal, then you should choose an outdoor shower with a slim width. Showers with a wider body provide a beautiful bold look.

In order to choose the right shower height, you need to decide whether you will install your freestanding outdoor shower into the ground, or attach it to a built-in shower tray. You then need to make sure the height of the shower provides the right amount of space to meet the needs of all potential users, so you and all your family members and friends can enjoy a comfortable and refreshing shower. 

Decide Between A Cold Or Hot Shower

Most outdoor showers on the market have one inlet, providing only cold water. This is fine if you live in a hot country, and you are happy to rinse off under a refreshing cold shower. If you love a warm shower, then you can take a look at outdoor showers, which include hot and cold water supply line inlets and either a progressive or thermostatic mixing valve. Let’s take a look at the different options available. 

  • Cold Showers
    If you’re looking to buy an outdoor cold water shower, then take a look at Aquatica’s slimline Gamma 515 . This stunning freestanding outdoor cold water shower features both a self-closing tap and a self-closing foot washer jet for a quick and easy rinse-down after the beach, pool, boating, gardening or sports. The water system is operated by a push tap system, which when pressed delivers a 20 - 25 seconds stream of cold water. It then shuts off automatically, a great feature where water supply is limited. If you want to add hot water to the system you can buy an additional thermostatic mixer.

  • Hot Showers
    If you’re looking for an outdoor shower with hot and cold water, then take a look at the Gamma 510 and Gamma 514 freestanding outdoor showers. Both of these showers are fitted with easy-to-use progressive mixing valves, offering complete protection from scalding. You can easily achieve your desired temperature and water flow. If you’re looking for an outdoor shower with advanced features, then take a look at the Gamma 520 , 524 and 527 . These are some of the best outdoor showers available on the market, and feature a thermostatic shower mixer. A thermostatic mixer allows you to easily achieve your desired temperature and makes sure it remains constant, even when other taps are opened in the same house.
