      Hi

      Any simple ideas to prevent a stainless steel outdoor safety shower from generating hot water in the stainless steel piping, due to the direct sunlight on the piping?

      Thanks

      Grant

      1. Resite your shower to shaded area
      2. Reflective tape wrap around pipework
      3.Industrial type umbrella often (often seen on middle east worksites) to give shade

      Just some thoughts

      Hi Grant,Maybe you can refer to the copper tube used for air-conditioner,Rubber insulation tube(material:NBR—PVC).

      If the shower is used often, you could have the pipes inside the shower so that the water splashing on them and evaporating will cool them down. Afterall that is how humans keep cool.
