This type of hot water cylinder is usually found in high and low rise flats Or you have very low mains cold water pressure.

Low water pressure

We use a quick test to establish water pressure... enough for an electric shower, Put your thumb over the spout on your bathroom basin tap and open fully, If you can stop the flow then you surely have low water pressure and would not expect to fit an electric shower - If you get soaking wet then you are in ! There are other options besides electric, get in touch for advise.

Still not sure what system you have ?
