I want to put an outdoor shower between the edge of my house and the hot tub (there's about 4' of clearance). It'll just have a simple downward-facing showerhead. But my spa disconnect panel is on the house wall (far enough away to meet the 5' requirement), but would only be say 2-1/2' or 3' from the showerhead, horizontally, and maybe 1-2" lower vertically. I don't expect it'd get much water from the shower, but it's possible. Of course it's an outdoor panel so it also gets rained on, normally.
But wondering if there's some kind of code involved here, I didn't find anything about outdoor showers, and obviously I wouldn't put it directly "in" the "cone of expected water" :) but... anyone with code references or advice here?
