There are many types of showers to choose from when you are building or remodeling a home. The conventional showers have been joined by all kinds of innovations including the latest addition the electric showers. When choosing a shower there is obviously a consideration to be made for budget, space and how it will coordinate with the other items in the bathroom.  A Shower has become a staple of bathrooms all over the world and in Toronto this is no different. Below you will find listed a description of three types of showers that are very popular.

Electric Showers

This type of shower has no need of a separate hot water tank since it has a heating unit built in. this type of shower is connected directly into the primary water supply and this gives it its advantage over conventional showers. This type of shower does not require a lot of maintenance. They are easily installed and can fit in most bathrooms. The one draw back to owning electric showers is that they have a low pressure water flow. This can be even more problematic if the area in which you live already gives low water pressure.

pressure to your water flow. Locally called “power showers” these are a favorite of young homeowners and builders. The installation requirements are exact and the pumped shower may not be suitable to some areas. These “Pumped Showers” require a separate hot and cold water supply from the rest of the house.
