6 benefits of having an outdoor shower

The days are definitely heating up so that means summer is right around the corner and you will be swimming a lot more often.

Australian’s love their backyard pools with a recent report from Roy Morgan Research showing that 16% of Sydney residential households and 7% of rural NSW households own a swimming pool.  The number of pool owners in New South Wales has nearly doubled in the past eight years.

While plenty of people have outdoor pools, we are also seeing an increasing number of homeowners installing outdoor showers for their pre and after-swimming needs.

We have put together a list of the top six benefits of owning an outdoor shower.

Instant Relief

Now you don’t have to worry about that long walk you will have to make indoors. An outdoor shower is just a few steps away from your swimming towel.  Once you have a swim you can quickly wash off any chlorine from your swimming costume and hair.  If you are going to have a few swims throughout the day then rinsing off after each one will keep you feeling fresh.

Less mess, less stress


An outdoor shower in summer can provide an additional facility for a busy family.  An outdoor shower is also fun and children may be more inclined to shower more often.  You can also keep that chlorine smell out of your house.



Your outdoor shower doesn’t have to stop at just being a shower. Use it for cleaning other things in summer like the sand or dirt off your thongs or the grass off your ice block.

Water fights

Water Fight

Don’t you hate getting into a water fight with someone, and you keep losing because they hog the hose? Your outdoor shower is a quicker and easier way to fill up a bucket of water.

Unique boasting

Four legged fun

Dog Bathing
