Hello, I have purchased a Mr. Steam MS150 from SteamSaunaBath and am finally getting around to installation.
According to the manual I am to use 1/2 inch brass pipe or copper tubing which I am to insulate using pipe insulation rated 212 degree or higher.
I'd like to use regular 1/2 inch copper tubing. To bring it to the shower I need to install two 90 degree elbows (total distance 3 feet). Can I use regular copper elbows and solder these joints as with normal copper water piping or do I need to do something unique? I guess the real question is will the tin solder hold up to the higher temperature of the steam?

Try this Lead Free, Nickel Bearing Solder recommended for steam installations.  The Copper tubing and fittings will work fine.
