Introduction: Luxurious Outdoor Shower - Part 4 [Door & Plumbing]
This is the 4th and the last part of the Luxurious Outdoor Shower and in this instructable you'll see: How I made the "Door" and How I installed the "Plumbing".
With a try square align the timbers in the corners. Also you can take a tape measure and check the length from the left side to be equal to the right side.
Then I placed the next timber, hit it with a rubber mallet and nailed its edges.
Repeated the same thing until the end.
I placed a piece of wood, aligned it, marked it on each end and then cut it from both sides.
With the same procedure, I placed 2 more pieces at the other corner too.
Then I put a screw every 10cm on the pcs placed up and down and every 20cm on the pcs placed corner to corner.
Because, I didn’t have a long enough post, I put a short one at the bottom and another one at the upper part for the door to stop.
I placed the door using three hinges.
Placed one latch on the outside and one on the inside.
Then I painted the whole construction with teak oil.
Now for the plumping, after I took the measurements, I cut all the pcs and put them together to see if everything fits right.
Then I started to connect the pcs one by one.
I put the water ball valve to the vise, then I took the brass part which connect the water ball valve with the copper tube and put the thread seal tape around it.
I placed the copper tube cutter on the copper tube and I started to turn it around the copper tube until it was cut.
Smooth the edges from inside and outside.
Brushed the point I sanded with the solder paste for a Fast, Clean and Sure solder joint.
Heat around the copper tube and then placed the solder without letting it touch the blowtorch.
I painted it matt black for a more beautiful appearance.
... and the water ball valves, in order to recognize hot and cold.
I made two holes for the hot and the cold water to pass into the shower.
I placed plastic clips for an easier and faster way.
With a plastic pipe cutter I cut the pipes in the right dimensions.
I also placed a stainless steel flexible shower hose, the wall mount, the handheld and finally the showerhead!
Oh yeah it’s ready for a try!
Thanks for reading & I hope you liked it!
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
I have been looking everywhere for this exact outdoor shower plan. It is perfect! Is there anyway you could provide a parts list - and the measurements you used on the plumbing? Thanks in advance.
