A steam unit works by using heating coils to heat the water to a boil. At that point, the steam is discharged. A control panel located inside the shower controls the system by allowing you to change the temperature and the duration of the steam. A steam head installed into the lower section of the shower delivers the steam.
Things to Consider
Before installing a steam system into your shower, consider the following things:
After gathering your tools and materials and selecting a steam generator that is right for your home, locate the steam generator and have an electrician install a 240 volt circuit. The unit must be placed in a wide-open area that is above freezing. Shut off the water at the main, and close the valves at the water heater
