type of shower advice please



Cold tank is not one metre above where we would like to put our shower. Is there any electrical showers that can be installed where there is a height problem & therefore pressure problem with regards to water & water supplies?
Property is a terraced house 2 bed flat roofed property. Shower to be fitted on the second/top floor. The boiler is a 15kw conventional system.
Do the hot & cold supplies have to be run of the tank/cylinder supply or can the hot & cold supplies for the bath be extended for the shower.

you've got a choice of quite a few shower.

you can have an electric shower that is fed from the cws in loft
but still needs a large cable run back to the consumer unit.

you can have a mixer shower fed from the cws and the hw cylinder
with an additional pump added next to the hw cylinder to boost the shower supplies.
that can be wired to a 3 amp spur

you can have a power shower with in built pump fed from the cws and hw cylinder. wired to a 3 amp spur.

or you can have a digital shower with in built pump fed from the cws and hw cylinder. wired to a 3 amp spur.

depends what you want to spend.
