For most people outdoor bathrooms are something that you can either enjoy on holiday or is euphuism for going to do your toilet business in the bushes. More often than not it is not the entire bathroom that is covered. In fact, it is often just the bath or shower unit that gets the full outdoor experience, and this enough for most people. There is something very bohemian about lying in a tub or standing in a shower and feeling the sun on your face and a light breeze caressing your body; it really does enrich the experience.

From a plumbing point of view it normally does not require too much work; this obviously depends on how far from the main house structure you are planning to put your outdoor bathroom. Closer is definitely better. One of the benefits of taking the outdoor bathroom option is that you can now enjoy the benefits of en suite bathroom without shrinking the size of your bedroom, while at the same time you can create a very pleasant bathroom space.

The most common design involves putting the toilet and basin under some form of cover, so that even in slightly inclement weather you can still use the loo and since this would generally be an alternative bathroom, having a shower indoors solves the other problem. Anyone who decided to build an outdoor bathroom in Ireland for example would need to have their heads examined, but those lucky enough to live in places like South Africa the outdoor bathroom is an excellent idea.

The plumbing involved in setting up an outdoor or semi outdoor bathroom is not too involved as long as it is not too far from a water source and the drainage system is easily assessable. This means that you will not require too much pipe to be laid and too much digging. Of course because outdoor bathrooms are still a relatively novelty, plumbers and builders can take you to the proverbial cleaners, hence it is very important to set clear precise price parameters before any work is done.

Kitchen / Batroom Renovations

Outdoor bathrooms, often perceived as a luxury reserved for holidays or humorously as a euphemism for nature’s call in the wilderness, are becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners in Cape Town, thanks to the region’s favorable climate. Andy Duncan Plumbing Services expertly caters to this growing trend, providing exceptional plumbing solutions for outdoor bathrooms.

The allure of outdoor bathrooms lies in their unique blend of comfort and connection with nature. Imagine the bliss of soaking in a tub or showering under the open sky, feeling the sun’s warmth and a gentle breeze – it’s a bohemian luxury that transforms your bathing experience. Often, it’s just the bath or shower unit that’s placed outdoors, striking the perfect balance between openness and privacy.

From a plumbing perspective, setting up an outdoor bathroom is generally straightforward, especially with the expertise of Andy Duncan Plumbing. The key factor is the proximity to the main house structure. Closer locations simplify the plumbing process, requiring less piping and excavation, thus making it a more feasible and budget-friendly option. This setup allows homeowners to enjoy the benefits of an ensuite bathroom without compromising the space in their bedrooms, simultaneously creating an appealing and functional outdoor bathroom space.

In most designs, the toilet and basin are positioned under a shelter, ensuring usability even in less-than-perfect weather. This arrangement is especially suitable for homes in South Africa, where the climate is conducive to outdoor living. While an indoor shower addresses practical needs, the outdoor bathroom primarily serves as a luxurious supplement to your home’s amenities.

When it comes to plumbing for an outdoor or semi-outdoor bathroom, the key considerations are accessibility to a water source and the drainage system. Andy Duncan Plumbing ensures that these installations are efficiently managed, minimizing the need for extensive piping and digging. This efficiency not only makes the project more sustainable but also more cost-effective.

However, it’s essential to be aware that the novelty of outdoor bathrooms can sometimes lead to inflated prices in the market. This is where Andy Duncan Plumbing stands out – we believe in transparency and clear communication regarding pricing. We ensure that our clients in Cape Town are provided with precise cost estimates before any work begins, avoiding any surprises or “proverbial cleaners.”
