perfetto shower panel

This is not your father’s shower! Shower panels towers are designed to give you more – luxuriously. Converting your shower into a home spa can cost a lot of money. But adding a shower panel can give your shower that upgrade for less than $300. And with this addition your daily shower now becomes an event. These shower panel systems feature multiple heads, some having a few jets, some having much more,  deliver amazingly invigorating streams of water simultaneously.

The features can include a wealth of features. From horizontal sprays and jets to rainfall showers and thermostatic controls. Some of these features can run simultaneously and on some shower panels two can run at a time (which is a way of keeping the required water pressure at an suitable level).  Here are a review of some of the best wall panel systems we’ve found:

Jet and Stream Shower

Horizontal Shower

The four pairs of evenly spaced horizontal showers on either side of the panel control the massaging and aqua-therapy parameters. You can vary the pressure and temperature according to your needs. The system is the best for the spinal cord, muscles, and the joints in your body.

 

Massage

The massaging effects can result in the holistic healing of many skin and muscle problems. Relief from skin rashes, eczema, psoriasis, can, and other infections and allergens are the key benefits. The pressure massage can relieve the stress on the muscles and joints. The expansion of the tissues and cells to the size of a few microns can restore the energy levels back to normalcy. The muscles and issues become flexible and stronger.

By directing the massaging spray onto the shoulders, biceps, chest, back, and the neck areas, it is possible to flex the muscles and eliminate the pain from the vital triggering points. This treatment method can eventually prevent the muscles from freezing due to inaction. The recommended time for the massaging showers is after your physical workout. It helps the muscles to shape up, burn the subcutaneous fat, and restore the circulation at the epidermis and the internal blood vessels network.

 

Aqua-Therapy

The pressure, temperature, and the duration of exposure can have soothing effects on the internal organs like the lungs, heart, liver, metabolic system, and the central nervous system.

Stability of the nerves and relaxation of the blood vessels help in restoring the blood pressure to the standard conditions. Activation of the key points on the lower and upper body artery systems aids in the healing of hypertension, palpitation, stress, and other adverse effects of fatigue.

Steam generators give you the experience of relaxing spas and saunas in the comfort of your own homes!

How To Choose The Best For You

The main factor that you need to consider while choosing a steam generator is your requirement of steam output. Every model has its own steam output power and you have to make the decision whether you can do away with a low power low steam model or you need a high powered high steam version for a more relaxing experience.
Then the question comes to how much space do you have. The model you choose should be compact enough to be confined in the space that you actually have to install it in your house. There are models available which are so compact that they can even fit in an empty wardrobe compartment!
Other factors that you should consider are its ventilation, safety measures and easy to use interface. An ideal model should always include an explosion-proof body and leakage protection. There are now models available on the market that are digitally controlled and are thus easy to use.

Precautions

• Don’t be in the steam bath for longer durations
• Keep kids away from the machine as it might be hot
• Turn Off whenever not in use

Superior 12kW Self Draining Steam Bath Generator superior 12k steam shower generator

Price on Amazon: $976.93

http://amzn.to/2HHKiDR

A 12kW heavy duty steam generator, this model is a durable and powerful steam generator which is ideal for your home use. The more the steam is, the more you can benefit from your product! It comes with 1 Phase Steam outlet and 2 chrome steam outlets and it takes up about 460-700 cubic feet of space.
A useful feature of this particular model is the self-drainage system. You would not have to worry about steam being condensed on the floor, making it a slippery surface.

space   

 

The self-drainage lets the floor remain as dry as it possible and thus keep you safe from slipping. Its controls are waterproof and programmable so you won’t have to worry about them getting dysfunctional in steam. But still, if you desire to keep them extra safe, just in case, there is also an option of planting them outside the shower as it comes with a 16 feet long connecting wire for the control panel!
Other features to look out for are a temperature sensor and aromatherapy outlet, which is our personal favorite!
This product is rated a perfect 5 star on Amazon and is an ETL certified steam generator, so the quality is almost warranted for! A reviewer on Amazon does on to say that he had a great experience with the company’s quick customer care, as well as the product which he claims was even better than his gym’s commercial grade unit! He confirms that room is filled with steam in a total time of 5-0 minutes, which is incredible!

Price on Amazon: $849.55

This is just a lighter version of the first one with 9 kW of power, so the steam output would be a little less all over, but in all fairness, it just might be enough to keep a small family relaxed! You probably won’t need so much steam when you are using it for residential use and so 9 kW is a preferable size when you considering to buy for your house.Its control panel can also be mounted both inside the steam bath and outside the bath! It too comes with a 16 feet long connecting wire to the remote console.

 

 

space  

 

But even in the case when you want to mount it inside to conveniently change the settings in between the bath, you can do it without any worry because the buttons are waterproof and can withstand the steam inside.
It also includes one of our most favorite features, the aromatherapy outlet which gives you the option of possibly a more peaceful experience. Features like temperature sensors are also something to look out for in this particular compact size model!!
It also comes with an instruction manual that tells you exactly how and where to put the machine
A reviewer of the product on Amazon goes on to say that this generator was just perfect for his home use. He praises the company’s quick response customer team which had helped in installing the generator!
Another reviewer appreciates the self-draining feature, which according to him, keeps the shower clean and last longer!

Steamist SM-7 7kW Steam Generator steamist steam shower generator

Price on Amazon: $1630.15

http://amzn.to/2tTLXV6

This product is made especially keeping in mind the residential use audience. It is highly compact, occupying a measly 220 cubic foot space in your house. This can literally be fitted inside an almirah or on an empty shelf near your bathroom.
This product also stands out in durability as it features stainless steel construction and solid state circuitry all over its metal body. It is designed to last for years of no maintenance.

 

space   

 

Its body is also covered in a Limited Lifetime Warranty!  But even in the case when you want to mount it inside to conveniently change the settings in between the bath, you can do it without any worry because the buttons are waterproof and can withstand the steam inside. Although it does not come pre-equipped with a drainage system, it has the option of adding on an auto drain which will enhance the performance.
It is easy to install its remote controllers, due to them being just like telephone connectors. Even its overall installation is made very easy, as its controls and the plumbing hookup and electrical lines are similar to those of your existing hot water heater.
Although what we don’t like about this product is its extremely less steam output. At only 7 kW, it is one of the least capacity steam generators on this list!
It has a rating of 4 stars on Amazon and a reviewer has condemned that he has been using it for two years now and goes on to tell about his previous generator from Steamist which lasted 14 years! And coming onto that, Steamist is a really trustworthy brand since it has been around for over 40 Years in this business now and even goes to offer lifetime warranties on its products with excellent customer service which really shows its confidence in its own products.

Price on Amazon: $176.99

http://amzn.to/2FIs0G5

At just $176.99, this product is the most economical option on this list! It is utterly compact for home use too. At only 180-250 cubic feet, it takes up very less space in your house and can be fitted almost anywhere you want it.It has a temperature setting range from 95-131’ F and a time setting range from 1-60 minutes, which make it versatile and useful.  It also houses the option to add Auto Drain which would keep the generator clean and working.

 

space   

 

It has a very useful feature that is a fault self-diagnosis display function, such as leakage protection, high-temperature protection, over voltage protection, water protection, and liner pressure safety protection. Thus it can be said that safety is a major concern for the makers of this product! It runs not only a useful display but an attractive one too, with an LED digital display for temperature and shutdown time.
Other features to look out for in this product are Ozone sterilization function; digital timer and water temp control. It also features a ventilation fan for better air circulation so that the steam does not condense on the floor and make it slippery!
The only thing we don’t like is the capacity, which is 6 kW, the lowest on the list! But seeing its price is 4 times lesser than the cheapest of all other options, we would say it just about justifies its shortcoming!
With a 3.4 star rating on Amazon, it seems to be doing quite well in a monopoly market for such products. A reviewer on Amazon says that when he replaced his 14-year-old Steamist with this cheaper alternative, he found out that this one actually produces steam faster than their Steamiest!

ariel steam shower 959

Price: $2893 for the Right Side Configuration

Price: $3118 for the Left Side Configuration

Summary

http://amzn.to/2FE5uhP

The Ariel Platinum DZ959F8 is one of the more smaller Steam Showers with lower dimensions of 47” x 35.4” x 89”. It has two variants – Left Configuration and Right Configuration and both variants are priced similarly.

It comes with a single stool design, and the interior is similar to DZ961F8, so aesthetic is also a plus point here. What makes it so special is the fast steam release – it takes only 1 minute for Steam to start. It’s wood bottom is slip-proof avoiding accidents.

 

The FM Radio has a waterproof design, and of course lets you listen to your favorite tunes while relaxing. There’s a built-in heater feature present as well, keeping the water temperature from climbing to unsafe levels – this also helps in the 1 minute steam dispersion talked about earlier.

There’s a LCD Control Panel inside for adjusting water temperature, radio volume, light options, and usage of the aromatherapy feature. Just like others it has a rain simulation effect through the top shower head. The Steam Sauna has a 6KW Generator.

It has 6 body massage jets, just like the DZ961F8.

 

Pros Cons
Acupuncture Massage, Waterproof FM Radio, Aromatherapy, Chromatherapy Lighting and a Handheld Showerhead Single Stool Design which could be a disadvantage depending on the person.
LCD Control Panel for adjusting water temperature, radio volume, light options, and usage of aromatherapy features which increases ease of access significantly Left/Right side configuration must be considered seriously or many problems could take place.
Fast Steam Dispersion – Only 1 minute, and built-in heater feature which prevents water temperature from rising to unsafe levels Installation is reported to be very difficult in many reviews
Real Teak Wood for high durability and no slipping Drain Problems – a reviewer recommended to check if the drain is flowing smoothly or not
20 Massage Jets

 

Verdict

The Ariel Platinum DZ959F8 is more of a smaller size steam shower, suitable for people who need single stool design. Aesthetically, it looks similar to the DZ961F8 – rich, black interior with great anti-slip floors. It has unique features like waterproof FM Radio, LCD Panel for ease of access and fast steam dispersion.

But reviews do indicate quality problems like with the drain system, installation time, and potential incompatibility with left/right side configuration.

Summary

http://amzn.to/2DtcUyf

The Ariel Platinum DZ96F8-W has been described as a very luxurious showering experience for its price. It has room for two people to enjoy the sauna, and has an extremely pleasing design, and comes bundled with great features. The woodwork is top notch – the floor as well as the seating surfaces have been made of excellent quality Teak wood with a great feel and sturdy design giving the owner a comfortable bathing experience.

Topnotch Woodwork – Teak Wooden Floor Size is higher than normal – could be a potential problem depending on bathroom size.
Easy to clean
12 Massage Jets

 

 

Verdict

The DZ962F8-W has some really high end features, with topnotch woodwork, and amazing 12 massage jets delivering great relaxation. However, the size is on the higher side. This could be a problem for smaller bathrooms, so make sure size isn’t a problem.

Another major problem with this product is the build quality – many parts are just downright poorly built and many parts have design flaws. If Ariel had addressed this, the DZ962F8-W would have been an excellent steam shower. But overall, a very decent steam shower packed with luxurious & premium features.

Muscles get relaxed with Steam Showers. This releases tension on your joints and cartilage – the same feeling after you stretch, but even better.

  1. Highly Improved Blood Circulation

There’s a temperature increase while taking Steam Showers which results in a higher blood flow to all parts of the body. This reduces vascular resistance and blood vessels widen.

  1. Better Skin

Steam moisturizes your skin. Warm Air combined with the moisture from Steam Showers open up clogged pores so they can absorb oxygen, vitamins and valuable minerals. This leads to beautiful, young, soft and glowing skin.

  1. Fix Nasal Problems, Prevent Colds & Ease the Respiratory System

Steam Showers tend to loosen up mucus in your nose, thus easing up congestion and irritation in your nasal areas. Taking deep breaths of warm air will decongest your inner body and totally ease up the respiratory system.

Steam Showers relax you and give you plenty of benefits by relaxing your muscles, your mind, your body and your spirit. This reduced tension lowers stress levels significantly and also result in a better quality sleep.

How To Clean A Steam Room

clean steam room

Your steam room is the house of multiple bacteria and viruses. They may be a cause of your lung infection! Have you ever thought of that? A cleaned steam room is mandatory for you if you want to experience the health benefits that a steam room provides.

Cleaning your steam room

The steam room should be cleaned from top to bottom using an antibacterial cleanser. You should choose your cleanser depending on the type of material your steam room is constructed from. Here are a few easy steps about how to clean your steam room:

  • Clean after every usage by scrubbing the benches and wall. Clean the backrests also. Keep a hand brush and a bucket full of water. After you are done with steaming process, dip the brush inside the bucket of water and scrub all the areas where you or any other person might have sat during the steaming process. You can add your preferred disinfectant liquid to the water bucket as well. You should scrub the walls and the benches for 30 seconds. Rinse the parts with clean water when you are finished.

  • Remove the stains by scrubbing with a hand brush. In order to prevent any stains from your sweat, use a towel while steaming. Lay the towel on the bench where you will be sitting. The sweat, dead skins and dirt cause stains. This will be prevented if u use a towel. Difficult and prominent stains should be rubbed with a sandpaper.

  • You can also use a vacuum cleaner if you see dirt, hair etc., on the floor. Vacuuming the floor every few weeks is a good idea. You can do it even if you don’t find any noticeable dirt on the floor.

  • Disinfecting the grates should be done regularly. Moisture gathers more in drains and ventilation. These places can breed pathogens. Take them out of the steam shower and scrub them to get rid of the pathogens.

  • Avoid cleaning with ammonia as it is stronger compared to any other mild cleaners. Clean the steam shower with a soap and a hose pipe if you use the steam shower regularly. Rub the benches with a sandpaper annually to obtain a smooth finish on the surface again. Make a bleach solution to clean the mold if any.

  • Mop the floor of your steam room with a deodorizing cleaner to get rid of any stains or the odor in the room. You can also clean the floor with cleaners supplied by your steam shower manufacturer.

  • Use a pressure washer for cleaning the outside part of your steam room. This will make the steam room look nice. Do not use a pressure washer on the interiors because it might damage the wood of the interiors of your steam room.

  • Always perform general maintenance. Tightening loose screws and brushing out water spots is required on a day to day basis. This will prevent you from tightening many screws later. You should also make sure that the door’s hinges close and opens properly.

How Much To Install A Steam Room?

Install steam room

Are the thoughts of buying a steam room haunting your mind but you don’t have any idea how much it costs? You are lucky enough because I want to help you out.

The average cost of a steam room ranges between £350-£45,000. Did u get surprised by the difference? Quite evident though. The price ranges so hugely because there are different types of steam showers available in the market and they are built in different ways. So, let us see the different steam showers and their prices. Here we go:

  • Steam shower pod

This kind of steam showers is generally available in bathroom stores. Practically, this is a one-person shower, but you can use it as a steam room also. Their price ranges between £500 and £2,500.

Though these type of steam showers are low in quality and they tend to leak and break. Opting for these aren’t a bad choice but make it sure that you go to a good supplier. They will offer a good warranty in case anything goes wrong. A higher quality steam shower from a manufacturer like Tylo or Helo might range from £8000-£60,000. Better quality steam showers always last longer and the price also depends on its features such as lights, a better quality is always beneficial.

  • Acrylic steam room

This type of steam rooms is less popular these days. The steam shower is winning the hearts of the people. They are delivered in ready-to-assemble packs in their specific sizes. The price ranges between £5,500-£25,000. The price depends on your desired size.

The benefit of this type of steam shower is its large space compared to a stream pod. You can get a few more people in. This type may be favorable for the commercial setting.

  • Custom built a steam room

This steam room is luxurious enough and they can be seen in a sophisticated bathroom. This is highly long-lasting and resistant due to its tiles. Generally, people spend £10,000-£29,000, but it completely depends on the size and features that you desire. A smaller steam room capable of accommodating a handful of people will cost less compared to a larger one.

A custom-built insulated pod is finished with your choice of tiles. According to your preference, we add things like a glass front or a LED. So, its completely what you want and how you want it.

This type of steam room does not fit any price list because it is entirely customized. So, here is an estimation regarding the price of a custom-built steam room:

  1. Calculate the linear meters. For example, 2m.2m.2m=8 linear meters.
  2. Multiply it by £2,000. For example, 8. £2,000.
  3. This is your price (VAT inclusive). £17,000.

Other features that you wish to have such as lights, doors will add money on. This above price matches 90% of the cases. You can construct a steam room wherever you wish to construct, and you can also decide how much you want to spend on it. Buying a portable unit is also beneficial.

What’s The Difference Between A Steam Room and A Sauna?

steam woman

There is a simple difference between a steam room and a sauna. Saunas generate dry heat while the steam room provides moist heat.

Steamy steam or non-steamy sauna?

In a sauna, a pile of rocks is heated up with a heater, which finally emits heat. The rocks are generally the main source of heat in the room. Although you can pour water on the heated-up rocks to create some steam, the steam room is no doubt steamier than the sauna. A vent is made near the floor in the sauna to bring some fresh air inside the sauna. The vent also limits humidity buildup inside the sauna. However, infrared light is also used in some sauna instead of radiant heat.

A steam generator is used inside a steam room to generate steam. It is much more airtight compared to a sauna and hence the humidity builds up inside the steam room is 100 percent. The air is so damp that even water condenses on the walls of the room.

Steam rooms are hot, Saunas are hotter

Though your body won’t sense the difference, saunas are hotter than steam rooms. The temperature ranges between 160 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit in a typical sauna. It also has 5 to 30 percent respectively humidity level. To our astonishment, the temperature range in a steam room is between 110 degrees to 120 degrees. You feel much hotter because the 100 percent humidity prevents the sweat from evaporating.

The difference of materials

A heated-up metal surface is sufficient to give you a great burn. So, what material would you choose for the benches inside a sauna? Wood, right? one more benefit of using wood is that it will absorb the moisture, keeping the surfaces cool. It will also pull out humidity from the air. However, we prevent the use of wood in steam room because the constant condensation will degrade the wood and it will add up to the maintenance cost. Surface materials of the steam room are non-porous.

Health benefits

Though they both reduce muscle tension and promotes general well-being, the steam room is preferred by those who have allergies and congestion in the chest. A cough and lung problems can be treated if someone sits in a steam room. People with dry skin gets benefitted if they take a steam shower. A sauna is not good for people with dry skin. Sauna’s make it drier. On the other hand, people with greasy skin should opt for a sauna as the steam shower will make their skin greasier.

The major concern in your lives is to elevate our well-being. A human’s typical life and regular jobs bring stress as a chore. Balancing the private life with the work pressure is a regular challenge. Isn’t the steam shower a great idea? Furthermore, it restores your home health. There are generally four types of steam room that are available on the market. They are as follows:

  1. Steam shower cubicle: This is the cheapest and the most common steam shower. Can be used by a single person.
  2. Steam shower combo: More people fit inside it.
  3. Acrylic steam room: Found in commercial spaces.
  4. Tiled steam room: These are customized according to one’s need.

Establishing a steam room in your home requires space. So, if u have space then inculcate some luxury in it. A stylish steam room is a pleasurable experience for your eyes and body. Here we present to you some of the best steam room ideas, that might inspire you in one and many ways:

Every steam room should have a slanted ceiling to prevent cold rain coming down on the users due to condensation. Non-porous surface materials such a porcelain tiles, granite, marble, etc. are the best things to fix in your steam room. A glass door is usually accompanied with a tiled steam room. Proper sealing of the doors and the windows should be done to prevent the steam from escaping the steam room. The steam room walls should be water resistant so that humidity doesn’t leak through the walls. Fixing textured dark colored tiles on the ceiling of a steam room adds to divinity.

The eccentric harmony of a revitalizing steam shower and a walk-in shower in the same aperture can be achieved with the help of the air pocket system. The air pocket system is hidden within the wall. It helps to create a maintenance-free, airtight, seal that keeps the steam in. It uses a chamber (not seen with the naked eye) that has powerful air jets that clean the glass door and dries it too without any manual interference.

Fabricating a master steam shower with double bench in a steam room is a common trend. We prefer cozy seating arrangement in every steam shower. A smooth and a solid surface material for the seating arrangement should always be chosen over any materials. A portrait with light colors in the master steam room will be an added benefit.

Using two different colored tiles for the bathroom and the steam room respectively adds perfection to the design. It distinguishes between the steam room and the bathroom. Always prefer to fix tiles of sophisticated color in the steam room as it will add serenity and calmness to the place. Always add anti-skid strips on the floor of the steam room to prevent slipping.

Vapor sealed lighting fixtures should be installed in the steam room to prevent moisture from entering the lights. The ceiling wall full of led lighting fixtures and two lights on the wall of a steam room will be a great lightning idea for the steam room.
