DIY Outdoor Shower

It is around 43 degrees Celsius today in South Australia, so for fun decided to make a cheap outdoor cold shower to cool down. A not so quick trip to the local town for lunch with my sister and a look around for outdoor showers, but no one had them. I was looking for something like this that connects to the garden hose.

So we looked at outdoor garden nozzles instead and my sister pointed out a simple brass adjustable hose nozzle. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to make it work at home, but I worked it out quickly.

Hose thrown over a tree, hoses connected for stability with a bungee cord and it was completed. Threw a strong coat hanger over another branch to hang a towel on, but on a day like today, you dry very quickly.

Tested it out on a almost mist setting and it is perfect and very refreshing!

It was $16 all up for the brass adjustable nozzle and the brass piece that connects to the hose, but I imagine you could do cheaper with plastic. Plus I can use it in the garden as well :)
