Steam showers have been around for some time, but it is only recently that they have become much more affordable and considered less of an expensive addition to bathrooms, especially in the UK. More people are extolling the benefits of steam showers, not only for general health and relief from stress, but also for conditions such as asthma, sinusitis, dry skin, and even the common cough and cold.You have two basic choices when it comes to steam showers: you can either have one built from scratch, or buy one that is already made, which is called a modular steam shower. Whilst each has its own advantages, modular steam showers are an easier choice for the simple reason that they are easier to install, can be used right after installation, and come complete with all the features you are looking for.What to think about before purchasing a modular steam showerModular Steam ShowerBut before you purchase a modular steam shower unit, there are some factors you need to consider. For instance, you will need three major components: one is the steam generator, the second is access to your plumbing and water pipes, and the third is access to your home?s electrical supply.If you opt for a modular steam shower, the steam generator is already covered, as all units have them. For instance, here at Lisna Waters, our steam showers come with 3kW steam generators that are already equipped with a strong boiler plus rapid start technology. But you still have to think about the steam shower unit?s access to your home?s plumbing system, so the water can be adequately delivered to the unit. The electrical supply is also another essential consideration, as you would need the unit to have access to electricity in order for the steam generator to run.Other facts you need to know about modular steam showersThe modular steam showers available today are actually self-contained cubicles or units that can be installed in any home, provided it has adequate access to plumbing and electricity. But other than these two factors, modular steam showers are very easy to install.Additionally, modular steam showers are usually made from acrylic which is combined with fibreglass, along with regular glass doors plus side panels and chrome fittings and metal frames. Other features you can expect with modular steam showers are aromatherapy capabilities, where you can put in a few drops of your favourite scent for a more relaxing shower time, radio with USB and Bluetooth, ambient lighting, and touch controls.
