This was the on demand water heater shower head in a beachfront hotel in Costa Rica. Looked good online when we booked, but I don't remember seeing a photo of the shower. Wonder why? Don't know if this was in the install instructions. Never did run out of hot water though...

    Used to stay the winter in an old historic hotel in Mazatlan, some of the other winter tenants used to have to wear rubber gloves to touch the shower taps, ours did not have the zap factor.

    That's the first one I've see with the ground hooked up. :D
    They are perfectly safe if you follow the following rules:
    Turn on the water without getting wet.
    Tap the water stream to see if it is energized.
    Take a shower being careful not to touch the head or anything metal.
    Get completely out of the shower, carefully reach in and turn off the water.
    They must be way safer than they look they are found all over the world.
