WHAT EXACTLY IS A STEAM SHOWER?


A steam shower heats water until it vaporizes and then pumps that delicious steam into an enclosed area for your enjoyment. It’s a simple idea—but doing it efficiently, reliably, and beautifully is an art and a science that we’ve spent decades mastering. Click on the components below for an explanation of how a steam shower system operates..​

The generator powers your steam system by boiling water. It’s about the size of a briefcase, though the exact size varies based on your shower’s construction. It can be installed up to 60 ft away in a closet, vanity, attic, or basement - basically any dry, heated location - with 12 inches of space around the generator for ventilation.
Installed inside the shower and away from direct steam flow, the control lets you manage your steam session. You can choose to control everything from temperature and duration to music, lighting and aromatherapy.
This is where the steam is released. It’s installed on the shower wall, about 6-12 inches above the floor and opposite the seating area.​
Your system will run on low-voltage household electric power (208v or 240v). You will need a water line to the generator, steam line from generator to shower, and a drain line.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT COMPONENTS FOR YOUR SHOWER


SIZE

We offer different generators for different size showers. High ceilings or particularly large spaces will require a larger generator. Our Virtual Spa tool can help you figure out what you need​.


MATERIALS

Most shower enclosures use one or more of these materials: tile, natural stone, acrylic, fiberglass, or composites. Each material has different heat retention properties, and this will be a factor in the generator you choose.


CONSTRUCTION

Your shower must be enclosed, insulated, and sealed. Windows, if any, should be double-paned. If you’re tiling your shower, be aware that larger tiles are friendlier to steam because they collect less condensation.


VENTILATION

There should be no heating, venting or air-conditioning components inside the shower. All light fixtures must be vapor-sealed.​​
