You find beach showers wherever people swim, play sports, and enjoy the great outdoors. As their name suggests, the first place you always find them is on a beach, although you will also find them at sports facilities, campgrounds, and parks. .
These special column showers are very important to health and sanitation because they allow people to wash off sweat, salt, and sand after a day of hard swimming or athletic activity. This is why you see them used so much in public outdoor swimming pools, because sunscreen and grass are two major contaminants that need to be rinsed off before people get into the water with other people.
These showers can also be placed inside of gyms with indoor swimming pools that provide swimming lessons to children. This can be a good selling point for swim lessons because it assures parents that their children will be swimming in an environment that is kept as clean as possible. .
Beach showers are freestanding units composed of a stainless steel column that anchors to the floor by a cast iron drain. Other models, especially those in very humid atmospheres with high salt content, or even areas with airborne industrial pollutants, are manufactured from heavy gauge steel that is protected by a powder coat finish.
You can choose between models that service anywhere from one person to six people at a time. If you use a shower with six shower heads tapped into a single water supply, this saves you a great deal of money on construction and installation cost. You also save money on plumbing maintenance because the units come preassembled, and you can usually by-pass any worn or defective plumbing in your facility without having to pay a lot of money on getting the plumbing repaired first.
In fact, it is possible in most cases to by-pass any worn pipes and valves when installing beach showers and save a good deal of money on plumbing repairs that would otherwise have to be done prior to installation. Whether adding them to a new facility, or to a remodel, all of these attributes amount to a drastic reduction in labor costs across the board.
Beach showers are technically a form of group showers, so they do not have individual stalls. They are cold water showers, which is actually preferable to people who are normally using them during very hot times of the year, or very hot regions of the country. They also have foot wash mechanisms that allow people to rinse their lower legs and feet of any sand, debris, grass, or other possible contagions before they change back into their day clothes or enter a public building like a restaurant, hotel, or beach bar.
Some shower models are preset for a maximum water flow rate of two and one-half gallons per minute so you can save on operation costs. Some models, however, can be adjusted by users to suit personal preferences. Beach showers are constructed with brass valves that ensure corrosion resistance in the harshest of outdoor environments, and they are 100 percent handicap accessible.
