Outdoor shower: The plumbing

Lay out and assemble the galvanized piping (see materials list) using nylon plumbing tape at each joint. Do not add the hose coupling at the end of the 8-inch bottom pipe yet.

Center and drill a 3/4-inch-diameter hole through the pole 78 inches from the top.

Slip the short leg of pipe through the hole, then center the pipe and faucet on the pole and secure it with C-shaped pipe hangers.

Add the hose coupling and then hook it up to the garden hose. Pressure-test for leaks.
