We've done a good amount of outdoor showers now, when doing a patio in the shower area we will usually put in a NDS plastic drain. We then use a couple of cans of plastic spray paint to get a close match to the paver color. The drain is tied into the same pipe we use under the patio for the patio drainage and gutter downspouts, this all goes to a dry well. In the shower area we pitch all of the pavers towards the drain and we use poly sand. The big problem we find is that the pressure of the shower will wear the poly out within a season or two, sealing the pavers helps with this, but the sealer makes the shower area very slippery, particularly when there is shampoo or soap on the floor.

My new preferred methos we push clients to is clean stone under teak or cedar decking. We then set the decking flush with the patio area. The popular shower we make has a separate entrance/dressing area from the shower area, we still do pavers in The dressing area as it can be seen from the patio areas
