That's the only shower they use at the nudist campgrounds.

When boondocking, who would waste water like that? I keep my galley sink plugged to do dishes and it adds water when rinsing rinse. I keep my lavatory sink plugged as well to take a military bath. This way I am only using a sink full of water per day. I would never let a faucet run without capturing the water.
I do not have to winterize living in FL. Obviously, I would only be using it if hooked up to city water. But between my boyfriend and I, we have 4 teens - 2 boys, 2 girls....people are going to want to shower and some places the facilities are nasty. I'm thinking boys in the outside shower!

Not everyone - just me.
Seems they frown on using it the same way as the inside shower.
Who knew?

I would take pictures and post it all over the internet, unless it was night time then I would use it as the moon.

We also have to rollup wooden walkways we put down that keep you out of the mud and dirt. Clean them up before they go inside... even if they are taking another shower inside.
Kids and water outside just seem to agree!

The wooden roll up slats are available at Northern Tool, Amazon and other places. Shop around. Some are ridiculous on their prices. NT is about $30 and you get two of them.

My daughter would use the outdoor shower with the hose extension through the outside window to wash her hair into the inside sink. This captured the gray water which we used to douse the fire pit. Waste nothing!

I use it to wash off sandy feet, hot rinse flip flops and sandals and wash the dogs when they are dirty.

Outdoor Shower Out

Outdoor Shower is a great place to do the dishes. Hot & cold running water and sprayer. Just need a small table.

Mine is normally used for outdoor washing of hands, greasy pans and parts of the grill. If I were to use it, it would require a privacy screened area and something to stand on to stay out of the mud.
Good Camping Swampy

I was going to mention the cons about using the outdoor shower for doing the dishes. The reason why I will not use it for dishes is that my camping experience has shown that the residual smell of decaying food, even in minute amounts, draws in wildlife to close proximity around the trailer. Bears, Coyotes, Raccoons, Skunks, Rats, Mice (and the snakes that prey on them [rattle-rattle!!] and of course ants and yellow jackets. Check with your campground before washing the dishes, pots and pans with the outdoor shower. I think most National Parks forbid it.

I give the dog a bath with it. And it's a great place to do the dishes with Hot & cold running water and a sprayer. Sometimes I'll fill water for cleaning.

It would be if the water heater held more than six gallons. Usually we just go to the co-ed shower house or use the showers alongside the pool or hot tub.

I've only used the hot water to spray grease and oil out of my electric grill before packing it away.

For me, this wouldn't be an issue but my wife is too short for the hose to reach.
