Once summer arrives we all love to enjoy the sun and the water outside.
If you enjoy your backyard at home and you have a swimming pool, no matter the design of the model or the material of the pool; wooden pools, steel pools, composite pools … after a good dip what you want and what is recommended is a nice shower to eliminate any remaining chemical product such as chlorine, for example. If, on the other hand, you do not have a pool (in GRE, we offer you many possibilities in terms of swimming pools) but you’d like a cool shower outside to cool off during a warm afternoon, we also have you covered.
In addition to using the shower after bathing, using the shower before entering the pool will reduce the amount of organic matter and dirt that is introduced into the water, which will contribute to a lesser use of chemical products as we will impact as little as possible the water quality of the pool.
To enjoy a shower this summer, it is not necessary to enter the house, you only need an outdoor shower for your garden, which is also the perfect complement to any pool.
Gre offers a wide range of outdoor showers, with different designs for all tastes: with various shower heads, with tap for the feet, and even with hot water thanks to the new models of solar shower for swimming pools.
