220 Vs 110: There are some companies that will claim that steam showers run better of 220 volts. This is somewhat true but we have found a way to get the best of both worlds. Steam showers were originally produced for European and Asian countries which run of a 220v power source. However American homes run on 110v power. All of our steam showers have a built in power amplifier which converts your 110v to 220v give your steam generator the power it needs while keeping the unit more efficient. This also saves money when it comes to installing you steam shower.
A very important thing to keep in mind is that the steam that comes from the unit needs an outlet. Otherwise, it may cause structural problems in your house.
Another benefit of waterfall shower heads that you may enjoy is they are much easier to clean. This is due to the single large gaping hole that they have. It's simply easier to get in and out of with a cleaning utensil. Contrast this to the multiple tiny holes in a traditional shower head. These are simply not easy to get in and out of with a cleaning utensil and they are therefore susceptible to things such as the build up of lime, soap scum, and bacteria.
A diverter valve can channel water to the showerhead OR the handshower OR the body sprays'but not all at the same time. If a hot supply and a cold supply were plumbed into a diverter valve, the water would run constantly with no way to stop it. You've figured that you have a shower diverter valve problem. Tackling plumbing problems in the home can be quite daunting. Shower diverter valve replacement or replacing a diverter washer can be tricky if you're not familiar with the process.
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.
