You can overdo it in any environment.  Too much of a good thing...

The temperature range in a steam shower is 100°-135° Fahrenheit.  In this environment your body heats up and causes you to sweat, providing many benefits including:
•   soothing and relaxing tired muscles
•   relieving tension, stress, and mental fatigue
•   providing a cardiovascular workout
•   increasing your metabolic rate
•   improving blood circulation
•   reducing arthritic discomfort
•   releasing natural pain killers Beta-Endorphins and Norepinephrins
•   relieving inflammation and congestion of upper respiratory mucous membranes
•   increasing resistance to illness
•   burning up to 300 calories, equal to running 1-3 miles
•   nourishing and maintaining clear, healthy skin
•   providing the ideal shaving environment

How long to stay in the environment is determined by many factors such as bathing style, health concerns, and personal preference.  Many people bathe in the traditional Finnish style which involves heating up and cooling down repeatedly.  In these instances, your entire bathing experience could take up to an hour!  Others incorporate steam into their morning routine with a 5-10 minute warm up steam before showering, during which they may shave, condition, relax, or whatever their morning routine includes.

Whatever your preference, be sure to listen to your body...  it will tell you when it has had enough.

Stay away from pre-built modular steam showers, these generally come from China with no support for installation and service later down the road.  Build a shower like you would a standard shower.  The difference would be added vapor barrier, tiled all surfaces, incorporate a bench or seat.  Then purchase the equipment separately.

For accessories, Aroma is the best and has benefits to your health.  There are so many to choose from.  A Lavender will Bring peace of mind and emotional balance to your day. Lavender is known to ease insomnia, depression, stress and lower blood pressure. It is also used for its beneficial effects on asthma, bronchitis, colds, flu, coughs and sore throat.  Eucalytpus is the most popular. The fresh, revitalizing scent of AromaMist Eucalyptus Essential Oil will transform your bathing environment into a luxurious and relaxing retreat from the stress and pressures of your day.

We are building a steam room at my house. Everyday I come from the office with full of work pressure and stress. Might it be the reason, I am experiencing a huge hair loss. My eyes are tired and have dark circles. It is very difficult for me to fall in sleep too. I tried different procedures to get sleep like concentrating on a particular point, listening to music etc. Even then it is hard to fall sleep. I heard that steam bath is good for keeping the body relaxed.  Also, I read many advantages of a steam bath.
Helps to improve the breathing and alleviates congestion.
It soothes mind and body to relieve stress and pressure.
Helps in increasing the body metabolism
Eliminate toxins and cleans the skin.
I think taking a steam bath every day might reduce my tension and help my body fresh. Is there any disadvantages for a steam bath. How long should I take the bath? I read that it is good to take a cool shower after the steam bath. And also, what are the bath and shower accessories required for a steam room? I have seen a steam shower online. Is it good to get one such?

Hi. We’ve been in the steam and sauna business for nearly 50 years and deal with the top makes and have yet to hear of Eagle.  A little research on the internet and we see they are one of those companies that make inexpensive enclosures.  They are located in California.  Unfortunately, to obtain parts and services, your best bet is to continue to reach out to them at 800-576-5011.

This is more likely moisture damage to the controller in the shower. We advise to shut the break off to the generator then remove the controller off the wall and spray some alcohol or contact cleaner on the pins. You can even dip the control cable end in alcohol and leave both out to dry. Then reconnect to see if it has taken care of the issue.

My 10 yr old Mr Steam MS225T w/standard "Tempo" control unit has begun randomly turning itself on recently. It just goes on by itself...at no regular interval...and if we're lucky we are home to shut it off when it decides to start up. No codes show up on the Tempo unit. I'm a pretty good DIY guy and could check it out if I knew what to look for. I could also call for repair if I was fairly sure they could fix it...but I'm not. Does anyone have any history on the kind of problem. I'm a newbie here and any help will be appreciated.

Greetings

Replaced water valve and it opens when 240V applied.
Turned on unit and it produces steam, however it doesn't seem to cycle the water valve.
No solenoid activity and no Amber light on board.
I inspected and cleaned water sensor and it looks good.
Is there any way to test water probe versus control board.
You don't seem to have boards available if needed.
I'm nervous about running water level too low and blowing the heater coils

Because of the modern design and capabilities of an infrared sauna, it poses small to no risks to its users. However, it can be a highly dangerous machine if misused. That’s why should speak with your doctor to make sure if you are fit for the high temperatures of the sauna therapy. If you have heart conditions and other delicate diseases, it is advisable to avoid using saunas at all costs.

Hello Bob.
To Blow the MOV, an electrical surge is generally the culprit To check the water solenoid, we suggest checking Ohms on it, a good valve should read in the 2500 to 4000 Ohm range. If it Ohms out good, then 240Volts needs to be applied to it to see if it opens and then closes without power to it.
For the probe, only real way to check it is to pull it out of the tank and view it.
If you need anything related to your steam generator, please reach out to us.  In addition to our 50 years of steam experience, we carry a very large inventory of parts and new equipment.
Thanks for the opportunity to assist you.
