Talking DIY Shower Perch (VERY easy)

Today I built a shower perch. Easiest thing in the world, honestly.

The materials needed cost me under $10. (I had PVC + vet wrap )

What you'll need:
1" PVC pipe
4 End caps
1 4-way
1 Elbow
Stainless screws
4 Suction Cups
Vet Wrap






Ripley approved


Hanging in the shower/tub

Thanks for this. Are stainless screws hard to find. I admit I never really looked for them.

I gather the SS screws are use to screw the suction cups to the end caps...

Nope, they're easy to find. Any old hardware store sells them.

Yes, exactly. I also used a couple to keep the joints from moving.

The entire project took me under 15 minutes to make.

I do recommend drilling tiny pivot holes, it makes it all even simpler.

Thanks, Marcia. I swear, it doesn't get any easier than this. You can cut the PVC however long/short you want it, and it's really cheap to make, too.
