Custom Steam Shower VS Pre-Made Steam Shower Units
Custom Steam Shower VS Pre-Made Steam Shower Units
2) Pre-Made Steam Shower Units
These are factory manufactured that are self-contained and come packaged together. Ideally, they
are cheap and offer a quick & easy no-fuss steam shower installation. Because everything arrives in
one simple package, you don't have to worry about the planning, measuring, and constructing
process of installing your own steam shower. These modular units are supposed to be the plug--
-play solution to home steam showers. In reality, they are usually made of cheap components,
expensive to repair (sometimes irreparable), and don't fit well into existing bathrooms.
Cooler Steam (BAD)
When it comes to steam showers, you definitely want HOTTER steam not colder steam. The problem
with these standalone steam shower units is that the steam never gets hot enough like a real steam
shower room. Part of the reason is that the generator is low quality and undersized for cost-savings
to the manufacturer. The other part is that the cheap acrylic enclosure can't handle the hot steam
like a real steam room. This one critical difference alone is probably the reason why pre-made steam
showers don't sell very well. If you want to enjoy a real steam shower room, custom built is the way
Because the unit is already built together in one piece, it is very hard for the average consumer to
tell the difference between one steam shower from another. This is where manufacturers put their
time into designing a high quality appearance while taking shortcuts on the actual unseen
machinery and working components, that is hidden inside. Unsuspecting consumers don't realize
that they're paying for foreign-made products that will break down very fast and the manufacturer
probably has fine print warranty relieving them of any responsibility.
Many people don't realize that a modular single-piece steam shower is not cheap. The unit itself may
appear to be the less expensive option when compared to having to spend time and labor to build a
custom steam shower. Repairing a self-built unit is not easy because numerous parts are pre-molded
into simpler pieces. There is no single piece that you can easily replace or contact the manufacturer
to repair for you. Quite often, there are many smaller parts of the steam shower such as the
enclosure seals and vinyl coating on the floor that will wearoff rapidly under normal use and aren't
covered by manufacturer warranty since it isn't considered critical to the steam function. You also
have to consider the cost of having a unit repaired with unmatching parts and home-made remedies
put in place to keep it running. Aside from the cost of expensive repairs because of a cheaply made
malfunctioning unit, you have to factor in the cost of stress, headaches, and decreased quality of
Hard To Install
Many people purchase a single one-piece steam shower unit thinking it will plug & play in 5 minutes
but this is not always the case! Quite often, it arrives in multiple parts and still requires a
complicated setup and some handyman work. A long instruction manual and poor translation makes
it easy for to miss a step and risk setting up the unit incorrectly. It only takes for you to make a
minor mistake to damage your unit or inadvertently void the warranty.
Won't Match Your Bathroom
They look great in stock photos but rarely does a single piece steam shower truly blend into your
bathroom aesthetically as it does in the magazine advertisement. Their sizing, shaping, color, and
design are usually limited so the steam shower unit will always be the one sore thumb that sticks out
in your beautifully designed bathroom.
The Verdict? The Custom Steam Shower Wins Hands Down
The custom built steam shower will most likely be (if not always) the better choice when you're
trying to build a steam shower at home. There are so many downsides to modular steam showers
that you shouldn't really consider them as a serious option. Not surprisingly, they don't sell very well
here in America and many people opt to choose for the home built do-it-yourself steam shower once
they fully educate themselves on the process. A steam shower is a longterm investment, requiring
careful planning and decision-making in order to maximize your enjoyment, health benefits, and
financial investment for years to come.
