    Can anyone tell me if i can tap in my shower waste into the toilet branch which then runs into the soil pipe,As going straight into the soil pipe is not an easy option.

    I would say yes I have done in the past. I assume your soil pipe is vented

    Are you sure you have enough of a fall for the shower waste? Make sure to have an suitable trap to avoid smells.

    Yes, although better on top than at the side of the soil branch.

    Technical stuff, this electrical business.

    I can tell you that.

    You can't, for blindingly obvious reasons.
