Many steam installations occur when a bathroom is in the process of being remodeled. When possible install locations are limited, a good option is one of the bathroom vanities; therefore, this limited space made my job a lot harder. The installation began with the slight issue that the plumber who worked on the gutted bathroom before me did not leave the drain exit pipe on the location I had specified, in order to make the gravity auto drain possible. Due to this, a special box used as a shelf for the steam generator made the level of the gravity drain a reality. Now with that fixed, I was able to proceed; however, my job was made even harder because the space inside the cabinet was reduced more. The good news is that I was able to install the steam unit, including the accessories my customer had bought, such as the aromatherapy pump, chromatherapy light, steamlinx app and inline water filter to clean the water feeding the steam unit. Please take a look at the finished product below and call me should you have any questions regarding a steam bath generator installation.
After ensuring the heating element had continuity and was pulling the right amount of amperage I removed it from the tank, after doing so I discovered the inside of the tank was full of sediment and residue build up, so very carefully this very hard mass was removed, however, the heating element although working had a small build up of sediment and a new one was installed to ensure optimal performance of the steam unit. The service was completed and the steam generator back to making the spa users very happy, it is important to note that had there been an autoflush valve installed the chances of this build up happening would have been very slim, but since this particular steam unit did not have the autoflush this happened in less than five years which is actually not that bad considering the situation.
This is one of the projects we just completed in the Boca Raton area, the old shower was completely ripped out and all the backing material was properly water proofed. In this case our customer had a Smart Series Mr Steam Bath Generator which we were able to repair and re-use in the new steam shower room, we always make sure all the corners of the steam room are protected with silicone and the tile is sealed. The fact that we install the glass ourselves makes the process easier for our customers as this allows us to provide a turn key operation. Check out the pictures of the finished product below!
