We installed an outdoor shower with a shower head, telescope handle and jets on our patio last summer beside the hot tub. Had a proper drain installed as well. It is in a secluded area of our yard and completely private. It is so great to have it for the pool as well. Even though we are in a winter snow climate we were able to have good use of it for 7 months last year. All of our family and guests were amazed we had this installed and loved using it.

Hello, we have an outdoor bathtub in the garden in Cairns. We are renting and the owners are totally happy with us having the bath tub yet we get a message from the Real Estate saying we have to move it because it's illegal due to being more than 300mm deep. Does anyone know the laws around this because I see outdoor bathtubs featured in House n Garden magz yet we are told we cant have one??? THanks

Could you create a screened or fenced area with a safety gate around the bathtub....something like the idea of fencing swimming pools for safety. I find what the agent said about the depth rather confusing...some ornamental garden ponds are more than 300mm deep.
