Steam showers are a popular choice in the health industry. Eco-friendly and effective, steam showers allow consumers to improve respiratory conditions, skin issues, stress, muscle soreness and fatigue all while burning up to 150 calories.
Mr. Steam is the leading provider of steam shower kits and generators.
And the company has made installing these showers as easy as possible – without major renovations needed.
Who is This Mr. Steam Anyway?
I didn’t hear about Mr. Steam until recently, but the company has been around since 1917. Located in New York, the company started by manufacturing steam irons for garment factories. These irons helped propel the company’s growth in the commercial sector.
But the company wanted to move into the residential sector, too.
Mr. Steam’s Steam Home offers a series of residential steam shower generators and kits. Designed for small spaces, these steam generators are designed to fit in the confines of a residential space.
The company’s eSeries products include:
Steam shower generators
Steam shower controls
Mr. Steam backs all of their products with a world-class warranty. A lot of the products come with a lifetime warranty, so you can be sure that your investment is protected from defects or faults.
The company uses high-quality materials and the best in steam shower technology to help you install a steam shower generator or kit in your home.
Which Products Do We Recommend?
Mr. Steam has a lot of different steam products, and they seem to innovate quickly by pushing out old products that do not have the latest-and-greatest technology. The company’s vast list of products is worth checking out, including the following models:
Mr. Steam MS400E Steam Generator
The MS400E steam generator is a residential unit that is part of the E-Series generators. All of the models in this series are made with recyclable stainless steel, and they undergo a rigorous quality assurance process to ensure that they’re some of the best in the industry.
The generators are all:
The MS400E is a safe model that incorporates a 60-minute auto shutoff feature, low-voltage control and an ASME safety valve.
Steam is produced for a space up to 360 cu. ft. with a maximum operating power of 9.0 kW. The generator doesn’t include finishes – buy them separately – but they are designed for long-lasting strength and durability.
The 400E is compact, and works well in showers or enclosed spaces that are up to 25-feet away.
Mr. Steam does recommend contracting a qualified electrician to help with wiring the unit. The plumbing requirements are:
1/2″ NPT steam outlet
3/8” NPT water supply
1/2″ NPT steam head
1/2″ NPT drain
3/4″ NPT safety valve
Easy to install and safe, all of the company’s steam generators come with key features:
Serviceable heating element
Full-port drain valve
Limited lifetime parts warranty
Water-control system (fully electrical)
Modular plug-and-play design concept
The E-series also includes advanced diagnostic systems that will help you troubleshoot connection and maintenance issues thanks to the Steam IQ processor. Unmatched quality and certifications, all units are UL listed in the US and Canada. The units are also NOM and CE certified for unmatched quality and safety.
Mr. Steam MS225E Steam Generator
The MS225E is a higher-end steam generator that provides an industrial-size reservoir, serviceable heating element and snap-on connections. Very similar to the 400E, this model includes all of the same safety features and high-quality materials.
The main difference is that this model is able to steam a 225 cu. ft. space versus a 400 cu. ft. space. Kilowatts needed to run the MS225E are also lower at 7.5. The compact design and lower voltage and amp requirements make this a great choice for smaller spaces.
You also have the option of going down to the MS150E (150 cu. ft.) or the MS90E (100 cu. ft.).
All models in the E-series lineup provide the same great plumbing requirements, with the main difference being the electrical requirements.
When you purchase any of these generators, you will also want to take a look at all of the accessories that are offered by Mr. Steam. The accessories include:
Steam shower controls, such as the Itempoplus, which will work with the AromaStema and ChromaSteam systems.
Steamheads are also available, including aroma glass and a linear steamhead.
Steam shower therapy options are another favorite from consumers. These therapy options allow you to transform your steam bath into an aroma therapy, chroma therapy or music therapy bath.
Packages are available, too. The packages incorporate the best products into complete packages so that you can confidently install a steam shower in your home. With an ironclad warranty and high-end design, Mr. Steam is the steam shower industry leader.
Residential steam shower kits allow you to take a steam shower in the comfort of your own home. You don’t have to go to a fancy spa thanks to Mr. Steam.
