They look too good to be true . .And apparently according to their former and our current customers- they are!
Below is an e-mail we received from a real customer who spent $2,500 on an item that he eventually threw away!

I am writing this letter for the purpose of preventing others from incurring the loss that I have experienced myself.  There are a number of very attractive steam showers on Ebay.  They are competitively priced and have every bell and whistle on them.  I thought WOW!   I purchased a Korral steam shower.  The unit came after 8 weeks of waiting.  No body in the company that sold it to me had any legitimate experience.  They baffled me with lies.  It was not ULA or CSA approved.  No electrician or plumber would touch it with a 10 foot pole.  It was not eligible to pass building inspection.  I tried everything under the sun to prevent it from leaking but the enclosure was not well made and the parts just didn’t line up properly to get a proper seal. The major leak was in the base – wall joint.  After 15 hours, 5 attempts, and 5 tubes of silicone I decided that this would never seal properly.  As a profession I assemble engines valued over $800,000.  I believe that I can get seals to place properly and apply silicone.  The problem with this was not my skill by any means. The next problem was that the steam generator leaked steam and water from its housing and connections.  The connections were made of nylon fittings. Not to be suitable for high temperature steam.  The whole unit looked very intriguing, but was absolute cheap JUNK.  I quickly disassembled it and discarded of it.  If I had left this unit installed in my bathroom it would have destroyed my new home.  The Insurance Company would have denied my claim as it was not CSA approved.  This turned out to be a lesson for me. “You get what you pay for”.  This lesson only cost me $2,500. Not $130,000 as it would have if I ignored the truth of that I was fooled by another dishonest company on Ebay and allowed this to destroy my home.  Today the company isn’t to be found, they took everybody’s money and ran away.  Please use my experience to better you in your decision making regarding steam showers or any other possibly deceiving products.  These companies need to be put out of the market place.  All I can do now is warn others.  I hope that the company that receives this makes this letter accessable to the viewers.  If a premium steam shower is not in your budget, please do not buy any.  Settle for just a regular shower stall.

Good Luck,
