It is a great investment and can actually increase the value of your home, as this is a must have feature nowadays.
Three-hole faucets come in many different styles and need three separate holes: one of each handle, the hot and the cold, and one for the spout. The tree pieces are not connected and can be mounted as far as 16 inches apart. When purchasing a three-hole be sure to measure the spread requirement, i.e. the distance between the openings to make sure the faucet will fit.
Some shower faucets have the pressure/anti-scald valve built into the mixing valve and others have a separate valve completely (not built into the unit at all). Replacement unit must be exact, so take faucet manufacturer's name and unit model number or old valve.
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.
Steam Shower Frames: The supporting beams of a steam shower are typically made of aluminum. Aluminum is widely used because of it strength and light weight. The bathtub and shower trays that make up the bottom of many steam showers are typically constructed of a stainless steal frame. It is important that steam showers have both a sturdy base and strong supporting beams. This is a must when shopping for a steam shower. Beware of cheaper models that have plastic supports, these don't have nearly the strength of aluminum and the finish can be scratched off easily.
