220 Vs 110: There are some companies that will claim that steam showers run better of 220 volts. This is somewhat true but we have found a way to get the best of both worlds. Steam showers were originally produced for European and Asian countries which run of a 220v power source. However American homes run on 110v power. All of our steam showers have a built in power amplifier which converts your 110v to 220v give your steam generator the power it needs while keeping the unit more efficient. This also saves money when it comes to installing you steam shower.
The latest designs do this using a built in thermostat. These are known as thermostatic mixing valves, thermostat valves, or TMVs, and can be mechanical or electronic. Another type is an anti-scald valve, which is only to prevent the water from getting to hot, but not chilling.
Perhaps, the most important thing to remember, when looking to buy a new shower stall, is the amount of space that you have available. If you are going from one bathtub to a bathtub and a standalone shower, there is a chance that you may be limited on space. If that is the case, you may find your options to be somewhat limited. That is unless you are planning on remodelling your entire bathroom. If you are planning on changing your entire bathroom around, it may be easier for you to find and purchase the shower stall of your choice, without having to worry about whether or not it will even fit in your bathroom.
Steam Shower Frames: The supporting beams of a steam shower are typically made of aluminum. Aluminum is widely used because of it strength and light weight. The bathtub and shower trays that make up the bottom of many steam showers are typically constructed of a stainless steal frame. It is important that steam showers have both a sturdy base and strong supporting beams. This is a must when shopping for a steam shower. Beware of cheaper models that have plastic supports, these don't have nearly the strength of aluminum and the finish can be scratched off easily.
A center set faucet typically comes as a one-piece set. It is used to cover a 4inch spread. Many of these faucets are quite fashionable and easy to install.
