Shower doors are another vital part to your steam shower. The seal around the door is very important if the seal isn't tight enough to much steam escapes making the unit inefficient.
Before installing a shower enclosure in your bathroom the back board needs to be attached to the walls which are holding up the shower enclosure, using a hammer and nails. Cement backer boards keep out the water and inhibit the growth of mould. If you attach the enclosure to a dry wall it is likely that the wall will suffer water damage. Other boards such as a green board can be used, however only in certain circumstances as they are only waterproof. The shower enclosure needs to be of a fiberglass or porcelain variety to allow the implementation of a green board. A cement backer board is perfect in preventing water damage if cracks appear in the shower or if leaks start to appear around the fittings.
These showers come with a quiet steam generator, which makes the bath more enjoyable. The typical shower enclosures include four walls, the ceiling, and the nuts, screws, and bolts, which are required to keep everything together.
The tricky part of this process is getting your drain cap to fit into a watertight position in the pan. This is accomplished by backing off the drain cap once you are sure everything fits together. At that point, you put plumbers putty around the underside of the cap and then screw it back on. The putty should form a tight seal between the cap and the shower pan, which keeps water from trickling under it and into the framing under the shower.
