Outdoor showers have always been popular for beach-dwellers, but they are becoming more mainstream for large, upscale houses and tiny off grid cabins alike. An outdoor shower is great for cooling down on hot summer days, but it is also useful for those who spend their days getting dirty in the garden, doing yardwork, or as a way to clean up grubby kids and pets. And if the water is heated by the sun, they are incredibly economical.
Solar showers can be purchased from a variety of places, but they are also a fairly simple project for DIYers who want to save money. Check out these solar shower ideas – from ultra fancy to super rustic – that can be built simply and on a budget.
