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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "What is chromatherapy?"
A. Chromatherapy, sometimes called color therapy, is an alternative medicine method. It is claimed that a therapist trained in chromatherapy can use color and light to balance energy wherever a person's body be lacking, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental.

Q. "Which components do I need to have for the steam generator system to work?"
A. In order for the system to work you will need the steam generator along with a controller and steamhead (steam head included when you order the controller).

Q. "What is the purpose of the auto drain?"
A. The auto drain feature includes a drain valve that will automatically open and purge the system after the water in the generator's stainless steel reservoir cools. This helps prevent sediment or potential scale build-up, keeps the system clean and can prolong the life of the tank and the heating element.

Q. "If an auto drain is not purchased, can I still drain the generator manually?"
A. Yes, you can purchase a ball valve to drain the system manually. Most generator tanks hold up to approximately one gallon of water. Depending on where you drain this water you might want to wait for the water in the generator reservoir to cool down. To some this can be an inconvenience and will often times be neglected or forgotten.

Q. "Is the auto drain worth purchasing?"
A. This is a personal choice. The auto drain is designed to help prolong the life of the heating tank and element. If you have extremely hard water then it could be worth installing rather than having the expense and or aggravation of replacing the tank or the element prematurely. If your water is filtered and conditioned then there is less chance of having issues with your tank or element as a result of hard water.

Q. "If I purchase the auto drain will I also need to purchase a drain pan?"
A. No, the drain pan is not for catching water from the auto drain. The auto drain is drained with a separate drain line. The drain pan helps protect your house from potential water leaks should the steam generator ever develop a leak in the generator heating tank. The drain pan is designed to set under the generator to catch any water that could leak from the generator and drain it wherever the drain pan outlet is plumbed to drain to.

Q. "I was looking at other steam generators you offer and noticed these were more expensive. Is there any particular reason why?"
A. These are the very best line of steam generators that Steamist has to offer. They feature InstaMist which provides instant steam in seconds rather than minutes. These systems also allow for many great accessories to be connected including chromatherapy, aromatherapy and a digital audio system. With all of these great features, you will truly have your very own in-home oasis.

Q. "So does that mean I can convert my existing tub or shower area into a steam room?"
A. Depending on existing circumstances...maybe. However, you must get the advice of a qualified professional (a licensed contractor with plumbing and electrical experience) when planning the conversion. These steam generators are compact so they won't take up much space, low maintenance, and are relatively simple for a professional installer to hook up. While this may not mean a major remodeling project for some, others might have to essentially "start over" with their bathroom since the steambath area must be properly enclosed and all surfaces should be able to get wet without having to worry about mold, mildew, or water damage.

Q. "How close to the seating area should the steamhead be mounted?"
A. The steamhead should be mounted 18" above the finished floor or 6" above the rim of the tub and as far from the seating area as possible. However, the control for the steam generator can be close or far from the seating area as long as it's 48" above the floor.

Q. "How many steam heads can I put on a steam generator?"
A. You can put as many steam heads on your steam generator as you want to. However, the more steamheads you have the more it divides up the steam. Eventually there will be very little steam coming out of the steam heads if there are a lot of them.

Q. "Who can use a steam shower? Are there any restrictions?"
A. Medical professionals consider "steam and sauna" generally healthy to use, but people suffering from heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, pregnant women, and the elderly who are not in good health should not take a steambath without consulting a physician first. As with all activities involving heat, it is important to maintain good hydration and "self-monitor" one's body for irregularities or negative effects of the heat. Those with cognitive impairments or who may otherwise not be able to appropriately monitor their own steambath usage should be supervised. Additionally, some say children can use steambaths for short periods of time while others say not at all - we say talk to your child's pediatrician first to help avoid any possible risk of harm.

Steam Room Design Considerations

The following information is presented as an aid to those installing a steam generator or constructing a steam room. Due to construction variables, climate variances and changes in the manufacturing specifications, this information represents suggestions only. It is recommended that you consult your architect, material manufacturer and/or specification engineer regarding your particular installation.

When planning a steam room project the objectives of comfort and relaxation should be kept in mind. A room properly designed and constructed should maintain a temperature range of 115° to 120°F, heat to this temperature in 15 to 20 minutes and have a comfortable and relaxing seating arrangement. If space permits, seating which allows the bather to recline or even to lie down greatly enhances the steam bath experience.

  1. A steam room, unlike a sauna, is a moist environment. Avoid using construction materials, which are subject to corrosion or decay.
  2. All inside surfaces of the steam room must be completely sealed and covered with a waterproof finish such as tile. Sheet-rock surfaces are not recommended. However, fiberglass re-enforced cement Sheet-rock such as 'Dura Rock' or 'Wonder Board' may be used if properly sealed against moisture with a commercial waterproof paint. All joints or cracks including the shower head, handle escutcheon and steam head escutcheon should be sealed with silicone. Acrylic or fiberglass enclosures recommended for steam by the manufacturer also make excellent steam rooms.
  3. Ceiling and seats inside the steam enclosure should be sloped to allow condensation to run off the interior surfaces and prevent dripping on the bather. A ceiling slope of 2" per foot should be adequate. In some installations, sloping the ceiling from the center may be required to minimize the ceiling height.
  4. A floor drain should be provided for cleaning and allowing water drainage. A nonskid floor surface should be used for safety.
  5. Ceiling height should be limited to 8' with 7' preferable. Heights in excess of 8' may result in hot or adequate temperatures near the ceiling but uncomfortably cool floor temperatures.
  6. An area for mounting the steam generator must be selected to provide the following:
    • Allow access for servicing and provide sufficient space to remove elements should they ever need replacing.
    • Protect steam generator from freezing, moisture and areas that might exceed 140°F. (do not mount generator in the steam room or in an outdoor location)
    • The all copper line from the steam generator to the steam room should not exceed 20 feet, should always slope toward the steam generator or steam head, should not form traps or gullies allowing condensation to accumulate and should be insulated to prevent heat loss and prevent burns from accidental contact.
    • The steam head should be located in accordance with the generator installation instructions and minimize potential user contact.
    • When installing the generator, plumbing unions should be used to allow removal of generator should service be required.
  7. When selecting a construction material for lining the inside of your steam room, make sure to contact the material manufacturer to determine that the material is warranted for the hot, moist conditions of a steam room.
  8. The steam room must be totally enclosed.
  9. Ceiling vents in the steam room are not recommended. If used, they must form a vapor-tight seal and positive closing. Ducts must be waterproof.
  10. Skylights and exterior windows are not recommended. If used, they must be double pane. Caution must be used to insure that the height and size of a window or skylight in a steam room does not prevent the room from maintaining comfortable temperatures in reasonable length of time.

When sizing the generator, determine the cubic footage of the space being heated (Width x Length x Height) then add the following:

  • Each glass block wall or exterior wall (if freezing is possible) +10%
  • Ceramic tile mortar bed or cement board backing +20%
  • Cast iron tub +20%
  • Natural stone (marble, granite, slate, etc.) +100%
You can then consult the tables above to determine the proper sized generator for your application.
