Benefits Of Steam Showers! Steam shower, in simple terms, is a type of bath where a steam generator produces vapors that are dispersed around a person's body. The self contained enclosures do not let the water vapors escape. This avoids damage to the wall paint or wallpaper.
If you have a custom shower (with multiple jets), a pressure balance valve is not a high flow valve, and cannot be expected to replace a thermostatic temperature control valve, especially in a multiple shower outlet installation. If the number of shower outlets desired is more than one valve can accommodate, it will be necessary to use two (or more) thermostat valves.
Warranty: Steam showers primarily come with a one year warranty on electrical parts and a one year warranty on the shell or acrylic pieces. This is a manufactures warranty. The warranty a company offers some insight to the quality of a steam shower. If they offer a warranty that is longer than the manufactures warranty it is a good indicator that the steam shower is a quality unit.
A diverter valve can channel water to the showerhead OR the handshower OR the body sprays'but not all at the same time. If a hot supply and a cold supply were plumbed into a diverter valve, the water would run constantly with no way to stop it. You've figured that you have a shower diverter valve problem. Tackling plumbing problems in the home can be quite daunting. Shower diverter valve replacement or replacing a diverter washer can be tricky if you're not familiar with the process.
A very important thing to keep in mind is that the steam that comes from the unit needs an outlet. Otherwise, it may cause structural problems in your house.
