    It may sound a bit crazy but the reason for this to happen is the fact that people does not want to have a cold (if not freezing) shower. Anyway you should manage to use ur wet fingers to switch it on…at your own risk!!!! Here is my question: is it better to die while in frozen waters or to die due to an electrical failture… you choose!!!!!

    Hi mate. The reason that some will find this anywhere from humourous to crazy is that even though you'd probably have to try quite hard to electrocute yourself using the above shower, the risk is significantly greater than it would be with a hard-wired and fully watertight fitting. You simply couldn't set your shower up like that in the UK. As a point of interest (or maybe otherwise), we don't even have flick switches in our bathrooms, you legally need to use a ceiling'mounted switch that you operate by pulling a piece of string!
