We have a lot of customers who order our steam showers from our website. So, we make a point of offering easy access to our customer service experts any time they need it. Even with a professional contractor or plumber looking after the installation of your new steam shower, you might find yourself needing to talk to one of our staff.

It could be something like not knowing how to change the light bulb on your brand new model. It’s no big deal. We’re here for you.

Here’s what is a big deal – buying an expensive product, like a steam shower, online and finding that there’s a problem. Keep these online purchasing tips in mind anytime you shop online.

  • Research. Call the company and talk to the sales people. They should be more than happy to answer all your questions.
  • Check the refund and warranty policy. Before plunking down your credit card, check that the company will honor your purchase if something isn’t to your liking. Will they cover the charge to ship the product back to them, for instance?
  • Confirm the quality. When you receive your steam shower, check the panels. They should be brand new and chip- and crack-free. Check the color, too. Is it the one you ordered?
  • Is it structurally sound? Check the quality of the aluminum supports and the overall frame. It should all be rust-free and solid.
  • Check the glass. Steam showers, like all glass showers, are equipped with tempered glass. Sometimes, manufacturers will etch the proof into a corner of the glass. If the information isn’t on the glass itself, you will find the information in the manual that accompanies the shower. If you’re still not sure, call the manufacturer or the store you bought it from for confirmation.

Ah yes, the life of luxury. That’s where it’s at! All you need is your very own steam shower – complete with aromatherapy dispenser and chroma lights. (Because, if you’re going to buy a steam shower, why not go all out, right?)

But, before you get to the part where you relax in your steam shower, you’re going to need to know something super important. There are 3 mistakes that can end up costing you a lot of money. Do your research now. Save later.

  1. Measure, measure, measure. Believe it or not, many of us think we know how large our bathrooms are. We walk into a store and buy a steam shower only to discover that it’s an inch or more too large for the space. Looks can be deceiving. But so can tape measures. Give us a call, and we’ll help you figure out exactly how to ensure that your steam shower will fit along with any electrical and plumbing needs that factor in. The delays and extra work can end up adding thousands of dollars to your budget.
  2. Know thyself. There really are a whole lot of different kinds of steam showers available to you. Consider whether you want it to include a whirlpool tub. Do you want it to accommodate two people? How about accessories, like Bluetooth? Will pets or children use it, too? Once you start looking at all the possibilities, it really is easy to get carried away! Start with a firm budget. Then determine who will be using and how often. Talk with one of our experts to make sure you’ve covered all the bases.
  3. Running hot or cold. Does your existing shower valve protect you from water temperature extremes? You’ll know the answer if you’ve ever turned on the spray only to be met with ice cold or scalding hot water. Make sure you ask the plumber to install a thermostatic valve. That little device will automatically mix hot and cold until the water is the perfect temperature. Call our experts to determine the models that feature a thermostatic valve.
