Thera Steam Showers

There is a new player at the top of steam shower industry. Therasteam.com, a business based in Seattle, Washington, is now offering a line of tremendous steam showers. Beautiful design and top-notch features have put them at the forefront of prefabricated steam showers. My personal favorite is the Magellan.

For those of you who haven't been following the trend, steam showers and steam rooms are rapidly growing in popularity around the United States. Research has shown that a daily steam shower cleans the pores in skin, leading to fewer blemishes and a younger look.

Wasauna Steam Shower


This is an innovative walk-in, built-in steam shower made by Wasauna. The shower includes features such as a vitamin c showerhead, chlorine filter, and a "never feel a drop of cold water" system that heats the water to a preset temperature so that every time you turn the water on it comes out at the exact temperature that you pre-specify.  The built-in shower allows you to tile your own floor, so that you stand directly on your bathroom, creating a sturdy unit that won't budge with even heavy users.





A picture of the built-in steam shower before it is installed:




Gorgeous bathroom designs by Wasauna Showers. Visit their site to see a good video of a steam shower in action.  The video explains chromotherapy and other features of the shower.

Remodeling a Small Bathroom



If you are remodeling a small bathroom, we recommend considering a shower stall without a bathtub. This shower is about 34" x 34". You could never get away with a bathtub this small. If you don't use a bathtub, you'll end up having a more useable bathroom by making the shower small and increasing the space for your vanity, sinks, and toilet. If you are planning to sell your house within a year, I would say make sure to keep a bathtub. Otherwise, feel free to rip it out.

Steam Generators

I'm looking for information on steam generators: how to install them, how they work with different control panels, who the most reliable manufacturers are, and anything else you can think of. I'm ultimately looking to put together a piece on custom steam rooms. If you have any info, please send me an email. Thanks. Surprisingly, I've found that installing a steam generator is a lot easier than finding reliable online information about them. One question I have is: if I buy a control panel from Kohler, can I buy a steam generator from Toto, or do I have to use the same manufacturer for everything.

Kohler Steam Rooms

This is a custom steam room with Kohler fixtures and a Kohler steam generator, I'm pretty sure. I found it in the Dallas News. I can't figure out if it has a door, but I love the shower heads, ceiling rain, and look of the control panel. This is modern bathroom design at it's finest, in my opinion. Estimated cost: $35,000.

Brett Jensen - Dentist - Folsom - Do not trust him!

Brett Jensen, DDS, is a Folsom based dentist. Do not let him work on your teeth. He convinced me to get veneers about 5 years ago and the resulting problems were an absolute nightmare.

1) The veneers were so badly done that I had to get them removed and have a more professional dentist apply them. It was awful paying a fortune to have Brent do the work, only to have them removed because he made them yellow and fake looking. If anyone wants pictures of Brett's awful work, please email the site and I will have them sent to you.

2) He told me insurance would pay for a significant portion of the procedure, which seemed fine. 6 months later, after I had left the state, he sent me a bill for this portion, saying that he was wrong and that insurance actually wouldn't cover it. I feel certain he knew insurance wouldn't pay for it, but he told me this to convince me to go through with the operation.

3) He never communicated with me that he needed the money -- he simply sent the case to a collections agent, who reported badly to my credit. Once I saw the money was due, I paid it immediately, but Brett has steadfastly refused to remove this from my report.

Anyway, the bottom line is that Brett fakes like a nice guy but his staff is untrustworthy. There are so many dentists out there, why go to a guy who will rip you off at the drop of a hat, especially when he performs really poor work.

Rendering - "The client wanted an addition with a roomy master bath and closet. The corner was rounded and the tub recessed into the niche. The shower glass reflected the ceiling’s pitch. Concrete was used on the vanity tops. The idea’s reception was dubious until the client saw this rendering."

R. Hendrick & Sons Bathtub Repair




"Bathtub refinishing or reglazing a worn-out bathtub is a site intensive process. The first step is a proper cleaning. Bathtub refinishing involves masking the surfaces around the tub to protect from overspray and properly venting the bathroom to extract any odors. Our refinishers will use scent masking agents such as cherry, lilac, cinnamon etc. After we remove the caulk, our refinishers clean the bathtub with a delaminating solution that not only dissolves what's left of the porcelain glaze but also opens the surface pours to promote mechanical adhesion. Next, the refinisher washes away the delaminating solution and prepares the area and surface for spraying, He then sprays on 2 to 3 coats of a fast-drying epoxy or polyurethane primer along mixed with a bonding agent to promote adhesion. Our bonding agent adds 500 percent adhesion the the surface. To finish, we give the bathtub a cleaning with a tack cloth to remove any dust particles or insects, and then spray four applications of a finish coat."

Whirlpool conversions




This is an interesting concept:

"Now your can have the pleasure of a four to eight jet whirlpool in the privacy your home without the mess, inconvenience, and expenses of replacing your bathtub. In just one day we can convert your present bathtub into a whirlpool, just as featured in many luxury hotels. Our whirlpool conversions include a 3/4 or 1 horsepower motor, safe air operated on/off switch, and adjustable jets. To match your decor our whirlpool jets and return covers are available in chrome, brass, bone and white. No need to worry if you bathtub has seen better days, and the finish is worn or dull, or just not a contemporary color. We can combine your whirlpool conversion with the installation of an Luxury acrylic liner. Not only do our liners make the worst bathtub look brand new, but because their are made of 1/4" ABS acrylic your whirlpool will stay hot three times longer."
