The contractor that installed this steam generator and steam head needs a few tips. Firstly, the steam head was not properly sealed, nor properly mounted for that matter. Notice the gap above the steam head. This gap will allow steam and water into the wall causing mold and other damage over time. The second issue is the pipe directly below the steam head. This pipe is plumbed to the Powerflush or drain on this steam generator. While it is ok to install in this manner, it is not recommended. When the steam generator drains, hot boiling water is pushed out through that pipe and has the potential of burning a bather.
