Once the water lines to the water heater have been shut off, you will install a tap. First, turn the water heater off; if gas, turn to the 'Pilot' position. Open the drain at the bottom of the water heater to relieve the pressure.
Using a pipe cutter, cut the cold water line a few inches from the water heater, and then make a second cut on the same line.
Install the tap, and solder all of the joints.
Note: Make sure the valve is open before soldering.
Once the joints are cooled, use pipe clips to secure the pipe to the wall or baseboard.
Install an access panel into the wall behind the shower.
Tip: When drilling into tile, use a variable bit and only drill into one tile.
Install the steam head 6" to 24" above the shower floor. Steam rises, so you'll want the steam head low.
