    Honestly Rick, I don't know.

    You know how you have that pile of things that accumulate over time? I put this together with some of them.

    I do recall a few years ago putting in one that was almost exactly the same made by Danze. Might be that....

      That Looks great! When I built My house on cape Cod We were near the beach. I had an outside shower.
      I used Used shutters off the ground with a door for privacy. Nice when I returned from clamming in the bay Mud.

        The picture of the outdoor shower brings two thoughts.
        1) source of dhw?
        2) waste removal?

            I have it connected on both sides to independent RPZ's behind the fence.

            I stand in a washtub when used and then take the wastewater to the local treatment plant.

            Nothing is off a 1/4" either.

              I am working with a campground right now that wanted to use bio soap with open air showers so they could divert the water to a small garden. The health department said they do not allow any gray water reuse even though it is permitted under the plumbing code.

                  For mine, I got an inexpensive Titan electric tankless for hot water. The tank is clear on the other side of the property, so the wait would be way too long. Mounted the tankless in a large NEMA Type 4 enclosure. It's powered by a dedicated circuit on a GFI breaker. Works great.

                  As for the waste, the floor of the shower is teak slats. Water runs through them, through the gaps between deck boards (trex) and into the french drain. It's mostly for rinsing off before/after spa use, so soap is seldom used. Probably would be frowned upon by No CA inspectors. Oh well.

                  A cool thing I added is a diverter and a foot shower. Mine is not built- it, it just stands on the hot tub deck. If I ever move, it's coming with me.

                    Thanks J.C., that beautiful outdoor shower ,woke me Up. We've been in this Home 8 years.In all that time I never used the outdoor shower mounted on the house wall near the spa.I up graded it to a Moen 8346 Sana Shower. I will do a redwood walkway from the spa over the concrete walkway.It's all very private. I enjoyed a balmy breeze this evening while cleaning up after work. Life is good!

                            I never understood why anyone would want to bath before work. No need to clean until gotten dirty. Seems an
