The ultimate outdoor luxury

The Hydra Collection showers—spa-like luxury at home.

Words by ArchiPro Editorial Team

Nothing is more invigorating after a swim than soaking in a cascade of water from a rainmaker shower head; feeling plump droplets hitting and gently massaging your body. It’s the ultimate luxury experience in an outdoor or garden setting.

At a time when more people are re-investing in their properties and the garden has become an extra room, Hydra Collection’s timelessly elegant, hand-crafted exposed-pipe Allegro shower range is proving hugely popular among homeowners. As a home improvement option, it’s sure to add value, says Phyllis Brown of Hydra Plumbing.

Hydra Plumbing is a family-owned run company that handcrafts all their products from their Christchurch-based business. Valuing artisanal craftsmanship above all else, they strive to make the best shower experience for their clients who are based around the world. Timeless classic pieces are inspired by the Victorian era.

Available in brass and polished or antique copper, a Hydra Plumbing outdoor shower is a durable addition to your garden landscape.

Revel in the great outdoors

Hydra Plumbing believes Kiwi living is about experiencing the great outdoors. Having an outdoor shower expands that experience and complements the outdoor lifestyle of many Kiwi families.

Their ranges come in a choice of metal finishes: solid brass, polished copper or antique copper—which brings rich character for an antique-inspired theme—and chrome, for a more modern setting. The antique copper has been aged through an oxidisation process, developing a patina that makes it well-suited to outdoor settings as it blends in with its natural surrounds as it ages.

Hydra Plumbing uses copper and brass because these metals are durable and weather resilient. They can withstand extremely harsh conditions, which makes them ideal for use in the outdoors.

“Being a natural product, copper is recyclable too. If you choose to replace your shower in the future, 100 per cent of the copper can be reclaimed as recycled copper at the end of its useful life.

Copper has natural antibacterial properties, making it an ideal choice for bathroom fixtures and fittings—whether indoors or out.

Copper: the versatile, antibacterial metal

Whatever your dream, a wide range of shower options are available to help create the perfect shower unit to suit your needs. Your shower can be configured out of the wall or floor. It can stand full-length over a bath or be wall-mounted. The dimensions can easily be adjusted during installation. The rainmaker shower head can also easily be retrofitted for indoor use without having to go to too much effort which makes it very appealing for the DIYer.

The quality of the Hydra Collection is obvious from the moment you open the box that it comes in. The weight of the product appeals as it instantly feels solid and genuine. “There’s no mistaking that it is the real deal. That’s something reputable plumbers really appreciate.”

In an era when people are hyper-conscious of bacteria, the self-sanitising properties of copper are also coveted. Copper has been proven to kill 99.95 per cent of bacteria within two hours. That’s really appealing in bathroom settings where hygiene is paramount or outdoor spaces near the barbecue, for instance.
