Outdoor Beach Shower

Summer is the best season to strut and look hot. Why not! There is always fun in the sun. Getting away from the stress of work and school, and from problems, families, friends, and lovers think of the best way get on that ride for real fun. And one thing comes to their mind – when the sun is high, beach is where we fly. Beaches are the top of the lists when it comes to summer escapades. Swimsuits, surf boards, tan lotions, and hot bodies are the eye-catchers and must-haves in such season. Swimming, surfing, kayaking, jet skiing, name them all and it goes down to this – getting wet. After long hours of fun and action, everything, with no exception, ends up with rinsing and bathing. Nothing can refresh us before going to our homes and our hotel rooms without even taking an outdoor beach shower.

Outdoor Beach Shower

​It’s not that you would look hot taking a shower (for some it could be a nice scenery of nature), but it is about the feeling of freshness and relief from the hot sun and salt water. It gives a great feeling of rejuvenation and ease after long and yet exciting day it has been, a great chance to socialize and interact with others

​A beach outdoor shower is usually not enclosed and is free-standing. It is mostly stationary and has a fixed area assigned for it. It has a shower head like other shower rooms. At the same time, it could either have a foot shower for rinsing sand and other dirt or a faucet for other purposes, or both. And some have only shower heads for rinsing.

​There are two types of beach outdoor shower based on where it is situated. First type is a wall-mounted beach shower. This type beach outdoor shower is attached to a wall, either side-by-side or only in one side, where a series of shower heads are present to accommodate a number of people. Some create divisions for privacy matters and some don’t. The second type of beach outdoor shower is a stand alone beach shower. This type of beach shower comes with a concrete base with a shower stand and head. Some have multiple shower stands to also accommodate more people.

​Whatever and wherever you are at the beach, try to end the day with cool outdoor shower. Enjoy it. Feel it. And indulge the freshness of a cool outdoor beach shower.

Caravan and Camping Heaters

Caravan and Camping Heaters

The types of heaters used by campers and caravaners are usually small, portable and efficient and this means that some of them can double up as garden heaters.

Camping style heaters can run off electricity, gas, or oil and since versatility and ease of transport are their main features, some of them can work very well if you want localised heat around a patio table or small gathering.

Most of these camper heaters are small and compact, have very low running costs and weigh very little. They can also be cheap to buy.

On the down side, camper style heaters are built for practicality and therefore they offer little in the way of rustic charm. However, if you want a small heater that is easy to set up, easy to use and easy to store away, they are ideal.

Many of these heaters a very basic to look at and compose nothing more than the gas bottle, burner, protector and reflector.

Examples of Camper Heaters

At the cheapest end of the scale there are small portable gas powered parabolic heaters. These heaters can often be carried in one hand and have an adjustable burner, a protective cage or mesh, and a directional heat reflective surface to maximise efficiency.

These heaters literally cost peanuts and a small one can generate up to 1 KW of heat. The real cost of using this kind of heater is in the cost of the gas bottle refills used for power.

Larger butane gas heaters cost more (although they are still very cheap) and they may resemble something closer to an old style mini stove. They are still very portable, but have a higher heat output.

At the top end of the size scale there are cabinet heaters that look and perform like regular domestic cabinet heaters.

 

Check First

You should always check out the details of any camping or caravan heater that you consider buying for outdoor use.

Although camping heaters are used in an outdoor environment, they do have the benefit of the waterproof tent for protective cover and this will not be present if the use is modified to that of a patio or garden heater.
