Hooking Up a Shower or Tub Faucet | Better Homes & Gardens
We already grow our food outside, cook outside, eat outside, play outside and even sleep outside. So why not shower outside? If you just need to rinse off chlorine after a swim, your outdoor shower can be quite basic. Spicher is referring to outdoor showers designed to be getaways — experiences with extravagant landscaping and standalone architecture separate from the home.
Installing an outdoor shower? Here's 5 things you need to consider
If you are looking for a way to enhance your shower experience, or if you would prefer a more versatile setup, you might be considering hand-held showers that attach to a tub faucet. This device makes it possible to move the stream of water around the tub, enabling a more thorough cleaning. Additionally, a movable shower head will help keep your shower cleaner, reducing the buildup of mildew and soap scum.
It's no simple matter to add a shower to a bathtub that doesn't have one. You have to break into the wall to access the shower valve. If you're lucky, the valve will have an outlet for the shower that you can unplug, but you probably won't be lucky, and you'll have to replace the valve. All of this is expensive, especially if you have to break through a tile or stone wall and repair it afterwards.
