Hi !
I have bit of odd reqest. I am born 100% Finn and somehow I wound up in Florida about 14 years ago. One of the things I miss the most is, propably NOT to your suprise, SAUNA. Now I got lucky enough that the gym (la fitness) that I joined reasently, has one! Im almost 100% sure that is one of your products or equal to ( pro14.4-3 with sc 60).
But now here is the problem. They posted a big note (letters size of a cat) that you're not supposed to put water on the rocks! And if someone wil,l they will shut down the sauna for extended period of time. Well that's not how we finns do the sauna!! So my guestion is if this is true?(I will try to get exact specifics from the heater to make sure but i know the temp.control is the exact one, sc 60.) If so, I didn't know they have such thing as dry sauna. And if NOT, if there is a way that I could have some type of operation manual or user guide e-mailed to me so that I could print it out and go show it off. And later maybe, just maybe go back enjoying the sauna and all the health benefits of it.
By the way I was glad to learn that you can order sauna this way. One day when I have my house, that will be one of the first things on my list! Thank you!
Yours sincerely VIIVI

In a PERSONAL sauna room, adding water to the rocks is a welcome and wonderful addition to the sauna bathing experience.  However, there are several very good possible reasons for your club's restrictions.  At many clubs, often times there are substances other than water thrown on the heater rocks which affects the environment for everyone.  Additionally, adding water to the rocks increases the sauna room temperature and most facilities spend countless hours trying to dial in on the ideal sauna room temperature to satisfy the majority of their bathers.  Consequently, many of these facilities have needed to make restrictions on these environments to ensure the comfort, safety, and well-being of all patrons.  Try speaking to a manager at your club to see if there is a "low-use" time of day where you can enjoy the sauna environment your way, but nothing beats having a sauna in your home.

Putting a sauna room in your home is a great idea!  There are many styles and features to choose from to enjoy this wonderful and healthy bathing environment in any fashion you please.  Check out this design tool to see some of the options available http://www.steamsaunabath.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/100000_100013/products_id/100222.
