Admin Clayton W Davis –
Great product but plan carefully!
Within the past 3 months, I purchased, assembled, and am now enjoying an Ariel Platinum steam shower. I will try to address the concerns expressed elsewhere about other models of this product, such as the 2-person version. 1. If you’ve never worked with an erector set or assembled an IKEA chest of drawers, do not attempt this project at home by yourself. You need to know how a bubble level and a screwdriver work in order to be successful. 2. You must carefully plan for your steam shower installation. I strongly suggest that you install it so that you have access to the back side of the “guts” of the steam shower in case of later repairs (I installed a “dummy” closet door.) Many people are confused by the drain configuration. The shower drain tray is raised up about 5 inches above finished floor level. The water drains into a flexible pipe that is inserted into a floor-level deck drain, which should be roughed in to be flush with the finished floor level, with a “P” or loop seal under the floor, same as for any shower. It’s similar to a clothes washing machine drain, except the hose discharge must not be elevated (so that the water will properly drain by gravity). In my arrangement, the 220v electric power wire and the hot and cold water supply pipes come up though the floor near where the drain is located. All of this should be accessible via the previously-mentioned “dummy” door. 3. My next door neighbor and I assembled the steam shower in less than 4 hours, including un-crating it and carrying all the sections around to the rear of my house and up some stairs. You must carefully read the assembly instructions and study the drawings and detailed figures. If you do, you’ll be just fine. If you don’t, dial 911. 4. The steam shower inside dimensions are 48 by 36, which are the standard dimensions for a 1-person pre-fab shower stall. If that isn’t large enough for you, then you can of course build a big walk-in steam room for about 10 times the price. The GOOD thing about the smaller volume of this steam shower is that it fills with hot steam in about 3 minutes, whereas the HUGE steam room at my health club takes at least 30 minutes to even begin to get warm. 5. ANY shower stall will become slimy and nasty and smelly if you fail to clean it. A steam shower is not maintenance free except, perhaps later, after you get to paradise, where even dusting won’t be needed. A medium scrub-brush and a standard household spray cleaner every couple weeks should keep it clean for normal family usage.
