    advice on installing a shower by myself or if a professional is needed

    Bathroom Specialists

    Is it safe for me to replace a shower by myself? Is this the type of work that should be performed by an electrician? Is it even legal for a DIY enthusiast to perform this work? If it is legal, what safety steps must I take?
