Q."What is the difference between automatic and manual blowdown?" A. The automatic blowdown automatically removes the water from the heating tank every time the unit turns off. With manual blowdown the user has to physically turn a valve in order to drain the water. Blowdown in general is a great idea for customers with hard water or a well. Removing the water every time the unit shuts off reduces the amount of calcium build-up, therefore, reducing the amount of maintenance. You are also getting fresh water in the tank with each use instead of using stagnant water to create steam. In most situations, automatic blowdown would be the better choice (much more convenient). The manufacturer only recommends using the manual blowdown for vacation homes or alternative applications where the unit is not being used on a regular basis. Everyday users would greatly benefit from the automatic blowdown option.
Q."What is the purpose of the Gemini Combo Kit?" A. With the Gemini combo kit, you can place the standard on/off digital timer outside the steam room. This allows you to turn the steam room on before you go in. You can then set the timer from the inside using the deluxe timer and programmable temperature control.
Q."What happens if one of the steam generators fails?" A. If one of the steam generators fails, only one unit will produce steam. This causes only one of the steam heads to release steam. Depending on the size of the steam room (and materials used), there may or may not be enough steam for the user to have a complete steam bath experience.
Please note: Steam bathing has many benefits including purifying and detoxifying the skin and body, increasing circulation, stimulating the immune system and
encouraging complete physical and mental well-being. Although steam baths are generally safe, there are some risk issues.
Please consult with your doctor before steaming. Because we do not make steam systems, we ask that you contact the manufacturer for steam bath
safety and warranty information.
