Hi there,

Having seen some ads on French TV recently for these I've been wondering about buying a small-ish steam cleaner with a glass cleaning attachment, mainly to clean shower doors/screens and windows but also to do the other things that steam cleaners do (when I find out what they are that is  Confused ).

Does anyone use a steam cleaner on glass? Do they work? We have a lot of windows, some of which are nearly 4 metres high, and it's a loooooooong job cleaning them - and a pretty scary one too, given that it's up a ladder. Outside it's worse because the house is built on a hill, so it actually needs an 8m ladder to reach them ... not a lot of fun between guests. So anything that would make it easier is going to be worth the investment.


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

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.

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.

I have a similar issue with my SM-46.  The valve does not open.  I checked the resistance and it's an open circuit - pretty sure I need to replace the valve.  But, more importantly, the voltage that was going to the coil was only ~55VAC.  I have read that it should be line voltage ~240VAC. Do I also have an issue with the circuit board?  The LEDS seem to operate properly.  When I press the test button or activate the power on the remote unit, three of the four LEDS come on.  It seems to be performing as it should.  It's just that the voltage to the solenoid goes from 0 to 55VAC when I press the test button.

Is there anything esle I can check?  I don't know what an MOV is...

I bought a  house with steamist SM-11 installed in it. It had not been used for many years. I had to change the motherboard and got it working. However the temperature barely reaches 90 F.   I tried following steps to descale
1) There is no auto flush installed - So manually flushed it couple of times
2) I tried to pour vinegar solution from the water pipe - but I think it needs pressure while I was trying to put the solution through funnel. Most vingar was just spilling.
3) Tried to see if I could open the heating element - but it seems after removing the six nuts - it is attached through some glue. So did not want to take it apart.

Can you suggest how can I try to descale it to see if that fixes the problem - Else what other cheap solution is there instead of just replacing the thing.

thanks in advance

Greetings Aaron! All steam bath generators create some level of sound during operation.  Some make more sound than others.

It is best to locate the steam generator away from areas requiring silence during bathing times.  A basement or a well insulated closet is a great place.

Most steam bath generators are located near the shower, however, they can be placed up to 50' away.  Consider a location that is good for servicing and where operating sounds are not a concern.

Please feel free to call one of our Technical Bathing Specialists at 800-707-2862 to find the best generator for you. You can also reach us by email at sales@steamsaunabath.com.

Today I got to experience a Tylo steam room and was put off by the high noise levels. It was very noisy in the steam room while it was getting up to temperature.  It was also abrupt when it kicked back in after the temperature dropped. I don't think I could relax in such a steam room.

I'm now searching for video / audio that demonstrates the real world sound level and sound quality inside the steam room.  Anyone have any to share?

My searching leads me to Mr. Steam and ThermaSol as the two options to most likely be the quietest. Is this accurate?

I've seen a good comparison of the two here:

Being in Australia might make ThermaSol difficult due to availability.

Just got an older MS150 and need a controller badly.

Does anyone have a Tempo Plus (preferred) or a temp? I don't really care about the shape or finish but brushed nickel would be perfect.....
