Water Conditioning and Water Treatment (See Products)

Steam bath generators using filtered and conditioned water perform better, require less attention, and last longer.

See some Water Filtration Installs in our image gallery!

During a steam bath session, a typical steam generator can use 2-5 gallons of water. As this water enters the steam generator tank and interacts with the heating element, it is converted to vapor and sent by the heat’s pressure to the steam shower. The process could be called distillation - that is, the pure vapor is sent off to the steam bather, leaving the lime or sediment behind. It is this sediment that water treatment resolves.

The impurities left by the conversion process turning water to vapor coats the steam bath generator’s heating element and tank, making the boiler process less efficient. As this scale builds with each steam bathing session, the generator’s efficiency and the heating element’s useful life both diminish. The steam bath generator drain orifice begins to constrict, and the water flow inlet is potentially compromised. The goal of an effective water filter or conditioning system is to reduce lime and scale build-up and maintain clear water and drain ports to ensure optimal steam bath generator efficiency.

An in-line water filter is the least expensive way to prevent scale or sediment build-up on the steam bath generator water supply. These devices trap water particulate as small as five microns (much thinner than human hair) and are available in disposable and replaceable forms. disposable in-line water filter is less expensive and must be removed and replaced once soiled. A replaceable in-line water filter utilizes changeable cartridge filters to simplify maintenance. These filters will provide confidence when a home’s water supply is interrupted which may dislodge and send particulate toward the steam bath generator. They also trap water-born particles found in well or village water supplies which more commonly cause concerns at water faucet outlet screens.

More appropriate water treatment for steam bath generators includes both filtration and conditioning. These products both filter and condition the steam bath generator water supply for dramatic results. This equipment employs three-stage cartridges to condition, buffer, filter, and reduce chlorine from steam bath generator water. Stage one features the benefit of ion-exchange which reduces generator tank calcium build-up. Stage two buffers the steam bath generator’s water to reduce PH (acidity). Stage three filters the water using coconut carbon enhancing the steam bath experience. These steam bath generator water conditioning systems deliver ideal water to steam generator equipment and are available in single-cartridge and dual-cartridge models. More frequent steam bathers or homes with larger steam showers should consider a dual-cartridge steam bath generator water conditioning system for less frequent cartridge changes.

Finally, a very important consideration in the purchase of a quality water filter or water conditioning system is to ensure steam bath generator warranties. Most makes exclude the damaging effects of poor water quality on their steam bath generator. In addition to greater steam bath generator efficiency, equipment longevity, and reduced maintenance, the steam bath generator will be most certainly preserved.
