Faucets and Shower Heads: There are many different types and styles of faucets and shower heads available today. When it comes to choosing a faucet, one needs to consider the specification of the bath. For example, one must know where a single hole, center set or a three-hole faucet is required. Moreover, the most important feature when looking for a faucet should be the internal mechanism. Quality faucets will always contain ceramic cartridges and brass fittings. Always steer clear of any faucets with plastic shells, seals or handles.
Shower doors are another vital part to your steam shower. The seal around the door is very important if the seal isn't tight enough to much steam escapes making the unit inefficient.
Shower Filter Comparisons! According to the experts shower filters can surprisingly offer various health and cosmetic benefits as they filter out the chlorine and other harmful chemicals from shower water so that one can enjoy the soothing shower. It has been evident that we consume 7 to 10 time excess chlorine and other chemicals from showering instead of drinking water. A recent survey revealed that there is a definite link between chlorine and breast, colon and bladder cancer. They also confirmed that because of chlorine and showering, there is a significant increase in the level of chloroform gas in almost every home in America. When chlorine vaporizes it generally combines with various airborne particulates and forms into chloroform gas, which certainly causes and contributes to asthma and array of respiratory problems.
Custom showers require plumbing changes and/or major considerations before installing. You cannot just simply add more shower heads or sprays to an existing shower stall or tub enclosure. Custom showers should be installed by a licensed plumbing contractor.
Certifications: There are many Safety certifications such as ETL, CE, UL, and ISO-9001. Depending on where you live your building inspector may require your steam shower to have certain certifications. ETL certification however is universally accepted in the United States and Canada. It is important to check with your building inspector before purchasing a steam shower that isn't ETL certified; this can save you from having to return the shower which can be expensive and hold up construction.
