Due to a hastily arranged bathroom renovation my productivity has been a little less than usual this week. It's hard to do things with tradespeople around. So I thought I'd cheat on this post and show something I threw together last week. One of the problems with a bathroom renovation is you have nowhere to shower while it's in progress. With only a couple of days notice I needed to put together a shower, and because I'm a cheapskate I thought I'd use what I had on hand.
I got lucky and found a sprinkler base with two holes drilled though it. This made it ideal to screw to the beam of the patio outside. The head on it wasn't ideal, but I did have one that was a lot more like a shower.

I was willing to take cold showers, it's summer in Australia at the moment so showering outside in cold water isn't too much of a problem, but by a stroke of luck there was an old hot/cold shower combination nearby. So a few adapters later I had a nice warm shower running. It took me about half an hour and cost me nothing except for a bit of thread tape. By the way, the secret to plumbing is thread tape, know how much to use and what type and you'll never have a leak again.
