    Electric shower from cold water tank

    Could anybody advise me whether an electric shower can be installed from the rising cold water main that feeds a cold water storage tank. Or if it can be installed from the tank on a shower pump. Or if you'd avoid fitting an electric shower on a cold water storage tank water system. Many thanks.
