Steam Generators

However, although our "off the shelf" steam showers are truly great, they of course, do not suit all situations and design requirements. Accordingly in this section, you'll find all the information, steam room generators and other product details needed to add a steam function to an existing or new shower, or to a larger steam enclosure or bespoke steam room.

First below, are details pertaining to the style or type of installation and further down the page, you'll find the steam generators in various sizes. If the world of steam is new to you, we suggest you have read through all the different #1 #2 #3 tab sections below [click the title to view the text], as some information provided is relevant to all types of steam room installation. If you need more advice, please do feel free to contact us by one of the methods on our Customer Services page.  

# 1. Adding steam to your EXISTING shower unit.....

OVERVIEW:-  Provided your existing shower is water tight, there's no huge mystery about whether or not you can add the steam function. After all, steam is simply boiled water and once this evaporates, it just turns back into water droplets and will exit via the waste in the same way the shower water does. Of course, there will be some structural alterations required in making your existing shower "steam proof" and you'll find details of this in the next section.

STEAM PROOF:- One misconception is that the shower doors need to be totally gap free. Sure, more well fitted and sealed doors are better but a few millimeter spaces here and there will not matter as steam escapes when the doors are opened anyway. Any space between the top of the shower screen and ceiling, can be enclosed with stud work. This plus all shower walls and the ceiling - which needs to be slightly sloping, must be fully non-porous. Accordingly, ceramic tiles and marble, shower board and acrylic are all fine.

GENERATOR SIZE:- The smallest 3kw steam generator HomeFit system will likely suit many existing showers provided the interior space is less than 120 cubic feet. The ideal shower tray to ceiling height is 7ft [2133mm], but should be no more than 8ft. Therefore a small 3ft x 3ft x 7ft [914mm x 914mm x 2133mm] shower equals 63 cubic ft and a larger 5ft x 3ft x 7ft [1524mm x 914mm x 2133mm] one equals 105 cubic feet thus a 3kw steam generator will be fine. This size unit is fitted in most of our free standing steam showers with one of the largest here, being just under 6ft x 3ft x 7ft [Approx. 1700mm x 900mm x 2170mm] Generator capacity is measured in cubic feet: Metric Converter. Please click the next Tab along for more initial details.

WHAT ELSE? - The smallest 3kw steam generator HomeFit system will likely suit many existing showers provided the interior space is less than 120 cubic feet. The ideal shower tray to ceiling height is 7ft [2133mm], but should be no more than 8ft. Therefore a small 3ft x 3ft x 7ft [914mm x 914mm x 2133mm] shower equals 63 cubic ft and a larger 5ft x 3ft x 7ft [1524mm x 914mm x 2133mm] one equals 105 cubic feet thus a 3kw steam generator will be fine. This size unit is fitted in most of our free standing steam showers with one of the largest here, being just under 6ft x 3ft x 7ft [Approx. 1700mm x 900mm x 2170mm] Generator capacity is measured in cubic feet: Metric Converter.

# 2. Adding steam to your NEW shower unit.....

OVERVIEW:-  The introductory notes in this section, are intended for when a new shower is being installed, where the total internal size is going to be less than 120 cubic feet. This is the capacity of our smallest steam generators, so perhaps first use the Metric Converter here, to help calculate length x width x height of your planned shower and determine if this will suffice or, if a larger steam unit is required. As with our existing shower notes above, some structural alterations are required in making your new shower installation "steam proof" and you'll find details of this in the next section.

STEAM PROOF:- As you are planing to install a new shower, this is a great opportunity for selecting shower screens and doors that are well fitting with good door seals. The area of the room where the shower will go, can be be constructed in advance so that the optimum install for steam use can be achieved. In particular, the ceiling can be lowered here to a height of circa 7ft [2133mm], with the exact dimension being the screen height + the height from the floor to the top of the shower tray. The ceiling should slope at around 3/4 inch per foot and running away from the sitting area. This will prevent water droplets from the steam, dripping on to users.

WATER & STEAM:- Whether you plan to have a shower tray or wet room style tiled floor, all walls, floor and ceiling need to steam and water proof. With most nominal sized showers, tiles will likely be the main choice and whilst brick or block walls are fine, any that are constructed of plasterboard or fibreboard are best covered in marine ply first. Same goes for the ceiling and it is recommended that all areas are then covered with a polythene membrane first, prior to tiling. In the previous notes we mentioned that the steam generator is sited outside the shower. This can be fitted into an existing or bespoke cupboard, or above within an attic space provided this is well insulated.

WHAT ELSE? - As previously mentioned, for the smaller size of new shower installation the 3kw HomeFit Steam Generator System will be adequate. This is Bluetooth enabled thus permitting you to stream all your favourite sounds whilst enjoying a steam sessions or alternatively use the FM radio. Also for a new shower, you'll be wanting a shower screen and door, a tray perhaps and a shower valve so check our links below. If you're planning a much large steam enclosure or steam room, check the further details on this page and our heavy duty steam generators.

# 3. Building a LARGE steam room or steam enclosure.

OVERVIEW:-  Whilst we suggest you read through all the other steam related details above, this particular section focuses upon building a larger steam enclosure within a bathroom area or even a large separate steam room in your property. For this, you will require one of the heavy duty steam generators we feature below which again, will depend on the total cubic feet space of the intended steam room area. As with our existing and new steam shower notes above, some structural alterations are required in making your new steam room installation both steam & water proof.

STEAM PROOF:- Whether you're planning a large enclosed area across the entire width of your bathroom or have a completely separate room for your oasis, the steam and water proofing requirements are much the same. As per our previous notes, circa 7 feet [2133mm] is the optimum height for the steam to be effective. Brick or block walls are fine, with marine ply providing a solid backing on to plasterboard walls and ceiling. Final interior finish needs to be non-porous, with tiles and marble etc being ideal, but ask your building supply centre for a proper vapor barrier to install before tiling. A bespoke glass steam room door and frame can be acquired - see below and whether you intend to install a shower or not, a floor drain will be required.

HEAVY DUTY SIZE:- The heavy duty steam generators come in three sizes - 6kw, 9kw and 12 kw. The 6kw has a 250 cubic ft capacity; the 9kw has a 350 cubic ft capacity and the 12kw a 500 cubic ft capacity. As a guide and with a 7ft ceiling height, the heavy duty 12kw model would suit a room size of up to 10 ft x 7ft [3048mm x 2133mm]. Use the Metric Converter and Online Calculator to determine your ideal size steam unit. Note that having a steam generator that is too powerful for your room space, is as ineffective as one that is not powerful enough. The 6kw and 9kw can be used for both domestic and commercial use as the unit can be connected to 220/240v or commercially in to 3 phase. The 12kw can be used for commercial installs and connected 380v - 3 phase supply.

WHAT ELSE? - As previously mentioned, all the heavy duty steam units have the electronics in-built into the same casing. Other key components included are Insignia M-touch screen control panel incorporating Bluetooth and FM Radio, water resistant speaker for music and heavy duty brass/chrome steam outlet plus shower room thermostatic sensor.
