Tips for Installing a Steam Shower

Date: Thursday, 06 November 2014

Bathing with steam offers a multitude of health benefits and a steam shower unit can transform your bathroom into a personal, at-home spa. However, before having your new steam shower installed, here are some tips from Steam Showers Inc:

Receiving your Steam Shower
To avoid extra fees, it’s important to inspect your steam shower upon delivery. Open the packaging and inspect the parts. If there are any damages, you need to note these on the delivery note. Also, have the driver sign it as well. Keep your copy and report the damages to the retailer.
Make sure you’re home when the delivery arrives; if no one is there to receive the package, there will be an additional charge. You will also need someone present who can help the driver unload the steam shower. The driver will not take the product upstairs.

Get the Professionals

For a steam shower unit installation, it’s best to call in a professional. DIY home improvement can save you money, but it may create more headaches and take more time in the long run. Additionally, if you’re not familiar with electrical and plumbing work, you could damage your bathroom, or even worse, you could injure yourself. Let the professionals handle this one.
Many of our customers hire a contractor who can do the installation. The contractor may also call in a plumber and electrician for the job. If you do not use a contractor, you will have to hire a plumber and an electrician. We recommend you do not schedule these professionals until the unit arrives.

Check the Local Codes in Your Area

Like with many home improvement projects, you will want to check the codes in your residential area before installing a product like a steam shower. This is especially important if an inspector with the county or city will be coming to inspect your renovations. Ask these professionals what they require in your area. The Ariel Platinum units on Steam Showers Inc are compliant with ETL (UL) listings. Customers who order a product that does not meet the requirements of local codes can return the item (if it’s uninstalled) but will have to pay additional fees.

Measure and Double Check

Before browsing steam shower units, be sure to measure the space in your bathroom where the unit will be installed. This will help prevent you from accidentally ordering a shower that is the wrong size. Measuring your bathroom, and double checking, ensures you order a shower with the right dimensions; this will save you time and money during your renovations.

We wish you the best with your remodeling projects.
