Hello there!
Let's start with the last question first-is a sloped ceiling really necessary. Yes, we strongly recommend this as its purpose is to prevent moisture from dripping on the bather.
As for your other two questions, it is a matter of preference. If you feel comfortable having a transom, then it is fine. You will just have to make sure the height is appropriate for you and other bathers to easily reach for open and close. Regarding having two steam heads for decreased noise and quicker steam, this will depend on which manufacture you are considering using.
There are many options when it comes to building a steam room. Having all your facts and work with experienced industry professionals is best practice. I would recommend giving us a call and speak with one of our specialists to review all your specifications and help you build the best bathing environment.

Hi all
Hoping I can get some questions answered for a new steam shower I want to build, new construction.

size: 7 ft long, 4 ft wide, 7'6" ceiling hgt. - Frame-less glass doors, exhaust fan just outside the shower door

1) do I need a transom?
2) I have read that installing two steam heads instead of one will decrease noise and fill shower with steam quicker and avoid hot spots - True?
3) is a sloped ceiling really necessary?

Thank you

Hello All,

The FIRST thing I'm doing on Thanksgiving morning is going to Google and landed on this page. Had an AMAZING experience yesterday that was unexpected.

At the very busy local YMCA, I like to go into the steam room after working out before showering. Normally I go in holding small towel over my nose as it smells like dank, quasi mildewey .... although nothing visually would tell you it's not clean.

YESTERDAY, I go in, and it was so refreshingly clean and intoxicatingly fresh it SO moved me I'm eager to replicate it. There was a spray bottle labeled EUCALYPTUS in black market on the bottle. The only other person in there told me it was an essential oil good for your repiratory system and skin.

I feel invigorated 12 hours later, slept well, skin feels great, breathing deep .. . . and I NEED you to please comment and tell me what to buy and how to make this concocotion and any other because I'm not ultrainspired to workout with this divine pleausure at the end.


I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Maybe you should just find out what they used when you're there again? Or find their number on their website? If you liked the smell, try also to go to the store of aromatic oils and try to describe what you are looking for.

Hi Dave, if you are thinking of building the cedar flooring on top of quality vinyl, you are on the right track. Follow best practice such as proper sealing then you should have an enjoyable sauna for long time to come.

Keep the heat on!

When removing the tank to replace a leaky rubber house, one of the white terminal leads that goes into the tank broke. Is there a replacement or some fix for it.

I believe it was installed around 2011.  Not definitive about the model.

Our steam room (Steamist) throws an E03 code. 

It hasn't operated in some time.  (It's in a remote location geographically).  I discovered that someone had overtightened the fresh water intake side of the filter manifold (Pure 420) so I repaired that, installed a new cartridge (Bathology Pure 401), purged any air using the purge valve downstream of the cartridge and then pressed the power on button in the steam room.  It appears to attempt to turn on, showing temperature desired, etc., and then reverts to a "E03" code on the right side of the display within about 15 seconds.  I checked all AC110V sources and all are well powered, and did a full shut down of power and started again to no avail.  Did not see anything abnormal on the electrical control board.  We also have two burned out silicon sealed lights (Steamist 9351, Model TSCH-1) as well as the ChromaSense colored LED light.

Water pressure is a bit on the low side--around 20 psi.  Never was a problem before, when installed.  Doubt that is the issue today.

Anywhere I can find a list of fault codes, and possible troubleshooting and corrective actions?

Found an earlier reference to E-03 as a communication issue...

"Error messages “Er 03” means the control could not communicate with a
steam generator and may be a cable connection problem." 

No wires have been tampered with, and I don't sense (without a multimeter) any discontinuity issues.

Congratulations on discovering the benefits of aroma in steam bathing!

Essential oils promote physical, mental, and spiritual health.  Aromas activate nerve cells in the nose which send impulses to the part of the brain that deals with emotions and memory.  Pleasing aromas introduced into your environment can enhance your state of relaxation and enjoyment.

There have been many studies and clinical trials which prove the healing and antibacterial properties of Essential Oils and how they can be used to heal and distress.  Aromatherapy is used both emotionally to invigorate, calm, relieve stress and much more, and physically to help relieve certain conditions by stimulating the immune, circulatory, and nervous systems.

As every person is different in their nasal sensitivities, you will need to experiment a bit to find the Essential Oils which benefit you the most.  Here is a list of several Essential Oils and the benefits they are commonly known to provide... https://www.steamsaunabath.com/steam-bath-and-shower-aromatherapy.html

Give us a call at 800.707.2862 and speak with one of our Bathing Specialists to learn more.

Steam on!
