My facility manager and I developed a rig that people use to test eyewashes and showers in my buildings. Even with floor drains and plumbed eyewashes, folks tend to use the rig. There’s an image of the rig in my newsletter here: https://chemistry.ucdavis.edu/sites/g/files/dgvnsk196/files/files/page/chemistry-safety-vol2-issue1.pdf

You are testing the showers the hard way. Put the big drum on a wheeled cart. A length of suitably large diameter plastic pipe in the drum is positioned near to the shower head to contain the splashing and over-spray. It is a good idea to cut some slots or holes near the bottom of the pipe so the water can run out the bottom into the drum rather than overflowing. Be sure to have a ladder in position to access the shutoff valve in the ceiling in case the automatic shut-off fails.
