Guidelines for steam rooms Steam Generators Steam Accessories Kitchen

  1. Walls, ceiling and floor must be completely covered with waterproof finish; i.e.: tile, marble, stone, slate.
  2. Any smooth surface flooring that is used such as tile or marble, should include an anti-skid finish to avoid slipping and injury.
  3. Any exposed plaster, plasterboard or sheet rock surface must be well sealed with a commercial quality waterproof sealer urethane or epoxy, at least 3 coats.
  4. Do not use green board, use cement board.
  5. Ceiling should be pitched away from the door 1-1/2" per foot or constructed in a gable configuration to prevent condensation from dripping.
  6. Built-in seat should be slightly pitched to allow for condensate run-off.
  7. Steam room must be completely enclosed with walls, door, floor and ceiling, but should not be vapor proof. A slight opening of approximately 1/4" is desired to create movement of the steam.
  8. A standard glass shower door is sufficient, a special door is not necessary.
  9. Make sure there is a floor drain for condensate run-off and cleaning.
  10. Do not install a fan inside steam room. Hot steam rises and will escape through the flapper.
  11. Windows that are part of the steam room enclosure should be double paned.
  12. De ionizer or filter hooked up on incoming water line is helpful in hard/corrosive water areas.
  13. Install steam generator to hot side of water unless water softener is hooked up. Water softeners are usually hooked up to hot side.
  14. Check local utility line voltage - choose appropriate steam generator voltage; i.e.: 208 Volt or 240 Volt.
  15. Make sure steam generator is installed in upright and level position and is in a location that is ACCESSIBLE for Water Level Probe maintenance.
  16. Steam Generator should never be located where it is exposed to outside weather conditions, freezing temperatures, near flammable materials or inside the steam room.
