Title: Feet cold while using steam shower
Post by: Johanna on January 20, 2010, 05:31:09 PM
Hello fellow steamers out there.
Does anyone else have an issue with your feet being cold while using the steam shower?  Actually, I find it chilly from the knees down.
My shower size is 24"D x 48"W x 84" high and constructed of Cultured Marble with steam tight bypass doors on that is 48"W x 84" high.   1 outside insulated wall 24"W x 84" high.
It is an MS65T.
No matter what the time of year, warm or cold, me and my family are always chilly from the knees down.  I have begun to stand instead of sit so that at least my upper body gets the heat.
Any ideas on why this is occurring?  Is doesn't happen at my health club.
Looking forward to hearing what anyone has to offer.
-- Peace, Out

Based on the information provided, I think your generator may be a bit undersized for this application.  I would suggest that you speak with a Steam Bath Specialist (http://www.steamsaunabath.com/catalog/project_coordinator.php) to review your installation and help you find a suitable solution.

hmmmm.....I'm not sure I understand how it can be undersized if the top half of me is roasting to a point where I can barely take the heat as the skin on my face feels like it is cooking.

How long are you waiting before you enter the steam shower?
Heat rises so perhaps you are not waiting long enough for the steam/heat to completely heat the environment.

It takes about 5 minutes before my unit starts to steam and then I go in right away.  I like to acclimate to the room instead of walking into an already 110 degree room.
I will am in the correct kilowatt per Mr Steam sizing guidelines.
We will try letting the room get all warmed up first, maybe 15 minutes or so, before we go in and see how your advise works.
Thanks.
