In the Netherlands, outdoor showers more often than not are cold and intended for cooling down or to rinsing off after swimming in a pool. Solis Gardenshower is a special outdoor shower that offers hot water. The metal tube framework screens the user from the rest of the garden without impeding his or her view. Meanwhile, the sun heats the water in the steel tubes; and you can adjust it to the perfect temperature by mixing it with the cold water. The drain can be fitted quite simply to the sewage system, but you could also use the run-off to water the garden if you are using either no soap or eco-friendly soap.
