Steam shower units are an excellent choice for homeowners looking for a shower insert that is retrofit for the space that held their old shower or bathtub. Perhaps you have an existing shower alcove in your bathroom and want to install a steam shower there. A standalone steam shower unit is a convenient choice for this and is less costly than creating a custom steam shower in the same space.
Steam shower units are similar to enclosed shower stalls. Just like a shower stall needs to be completely enclosed to keep water in the shower, a steam shower has to be completely airtight in order for the steam to be restricted to the shower. A steam shower unit from SteamShowersInc.com will accomplish this without the need to make expensive renovations to your existing shower. For example, to convert an existing shower to a steam shower, an airtight door will need to be added and the grout will have to withstand the steam. Additionally, purchasing an enclosed steam shower unit will prevent you from having to complete renovations to create a custom steam shower with a sloped ceiling to keep condensation from falling on the user.
A retrofit steam shower unit, like the Ariel Platinum DZ972F8 Steam Shower, can replace an older shower insert. Just be sure to order right size for your shower alcove. There are various sizes in different styles and colors available on SteamShowersInc.com. Installation will not require any drastic changes to your plumbing. You simply hook up the steam shower unit to the existing hot and cold water lines. Also, the unit needs to be sealed with silicone sealant during installation, so that the unit will be airtight and so leaks will not occur. This is easily accomplished.
