How to install a steam shower yourself


Required material:

  • steam generator
  • Shower cabin, if not already installed
  • Ventilation tube, ventilation slots
  • Sanitary sealant for sealing all joints

Step 1

A steam shower can be installed with little effort into an existing, ground-level or floor-level shower. The size of the shower is crucial for the size of the generator. Start with the complete sealing of the shower area. The sealing of the masonry must be checked and, if necessary, improved. This must be done carefully to prevent the penetration of water vapor into the building fabric.

step 2

An existing shower cubicle can be provided with a blanket to prevent the vapor from escaping upwards. A perfect seal is essential. If the shower cubicle is already high, you should re-seal the ceiling and the joints between the ceiling and the cabin. To use the built-in steam shower as a normal shower, you can use vents in the upper cabin area to allow the steam to escape.

step 3

Now connect the steam generator to the shower cubicle. Here you connect the generator to the steam pipe connection with the shower cubicle. Seal the joint carefully. In addition to the steam connection, a standardized steam generator also has a power, a fresh and a waste water connection and should therefore be positioned as favorably as possible in order to avoid or minimize the laying of new pipes. Most common steam generators are compact, so you can hide them behind a cabinet or under a small piece of suspended wall paneling.

Step 4

Once all the outside passages are connected through the shower cubicle, they seal each junction carefully and accurately. Carry out a leak test on all inlets and outlets to prevent the escape of water vapor as much as possible. So you can install your own steam shower with just a few steps!
