A power shower looks like an electric shower but it has a built in pump to increase the flow rate output that runs off a cold water feed and hot water tank. This type of pumped shower is perfect for homes with low pressure or for those seeking a shower that really packs a punch. To install this type of shower you would need to have a gravity based, tank fed water system.
