modular steam shower


The beauty of a pre-fabricated (sometimes called a “modular”) steam shower unit is that you don’t have to assume the cost of purchasing tile and glass to construct your own custom unit. You can get every accessory you want with a modular unit.

Your steam shower unit will come in two or more boxes depending on the size you’ve chosen, and whether you’ve purchased a steam shower and whirlpool combination unit or not. The thought of installing this large fixture may seem daunting. But, don’t worry. The box comes with instructions and we’re here to help your through the process.

The first thing we absolutely advise you to do is to hire a professional plumber and electrician. Even experienced do-it-yourselfer should get an expert to check their plumbing and electrical work. Plumbing and electrical are vital to a properly installed steam shower, and can be very dangerous if you don’t really know what you’re doing.


Follow these steps:

  • Make sure you’re home to receive delivery of the boxes. You’ll want to bring the boxes into your home as soon as possible. Unpack the panels, and inspect them carefully. If you notice any chips, dents, or any other kind of marks that may have occurred during manufacturing or transportation, take a note of it, take a photograph, and call us as soon as possible.
  • Depending on the unit you’ve purchased and where the steam shower will be installed, you may need help carting the boxes and panels up or down stairs. Organize a help party before delivery. The delivery professionals can only drop the product off at your door. You’ll need to have people at the ready to carry the boxes in.
  • As we’ve already mentioned, there are plenty of people who love to do jobs around their homes. But, because a steam shower requires proper plumbing and electrical connections, we urge you to hire those professionals to help with the installation.
  • Talk to your community’s planning department to make sure that your steam shower installation is to code. All our steam showers are compliant with ETL (CSA/UL) requirements.
