Steam Generator Location

(See Products)

Steam generators can be installed in a variety of locations at various distances from the steam shower enclosure. Select a solid, level, and serviceable area ideally within 25ft of the steam shower which is protected from freezing and moisture.  A generator installation location directly adjacent to the steam shower is not necessarily better than one further away. We suggest you evaluate your floor plan and consider service accessibility to determine the most suitable space for this equipment. If an acceptable space is not available within 25ft of the steam shower, no problem, just contact a SteamSaunaBath installation specialist to review your installation. We will evaluate your floor plan, advise the best location for your steam shower generator, size/select the model to suit your application and...Guarantee Its Satisfactory Performance!

Weighing approximately 30 pounds and roughly the size of a briefcase, a steam generator is capable of being wall hung or floor mounted. Typical installation locations include utility rooms, basements, closets, heated attics, cabinets, walls and crawl spaces. Steam generators do not require a fan for cooling nor much in the way of fresh air ventilation. Though the exterior casing of a steam generator does not get hot during normal operation, many of the associated connecting pipes will. Combustible material should never lie on or near this equipment and it is always recommended that you strictly comply with the manufacturer's installation details that accompany your selected equipment.

See some Good Generator Installs in our image gallery!

When installed in a location where an unlikely water leak could cause damage to the surrounding area, SteamSaunaBath always recommends installing the steam generator in a Stainless Steel drain pan piped to an acceptable discharge. Additionally, always consider accessibility for periodic inspection and the unlikely event of servicing.

Other important considerations when selecting a steam generator installation location include steam line run from generator into the steam shower enclosure, control cable connection from steam generator to control location, whether the steam generator requires a gravity drain connection, how accessible are water and electric service lines, whether the steam generator makes noises during operation, and local building codes. Selecting an appropriate steam generator installation location is very important! If faced with indecision, please contact us at 800-707-2862. Our team has seen literally thousands of steam generator/shower installations and welcome the opportunity to assist in your project.

Do not install steam generators inside the steam shower, outdoors, in unheated attics, in locations where water can freeze, near flammable or corrosive materials, or near chemicals such as paint thinners, gasoline, or chlorine.
