Anyone fitted an ourdoor shower valve for cleaning their dogs?

I was thinking of fitting thermostatic shower valve on the outside wall under the kitchen window as their is a hot and cold supply under the kitchen sink

How would you stop it freezing in the winter?

Put a insulated wooden cupboard around it, always hang flexible hose so water runs down and out.

Fit two outside taps.  Fit them with Hozelok adapters, use a short bit of hose off each tap going in to a Y connector, then a single hose to a spray gun.  Probably £30 worth of parts and no bother with freezing, except when very cold you may have to pour some warm water onto the tap bodies to get them flowing.  Plus side is it's useful to have the hot outlet for other stuff outside as well 👍

If you have a mixer tap in your kitchen you can unscrew the insert and buy a Hozelok type hose adaptor that screws back in for less than a fiver, then you simply attach a hose to the tap, hang it out of the window and  Bobs your uncle.
