How to Prolong the Lifespan of Your Steam Generator

Posted on 22 July 2022

A steam generator can add many benefits to your everyday life, from relaxation to relieving stress - bringing you peace like never before. Many people are taking the plunge by installing a steam shower kit in Canada. With easy installation, you can get started on your journey immediately. Your steam generator for your shower or bath requires little to no maintenance, although a regular clean permits the best experience. To prolong the lifespan of your steam generator, there are some tips to consider to keep it running great for years to come. 

Here are 3 ways you can extend your steam generator's lifespan.

Install an Auto Flush System

If not flushed regularly, minerals from the water can turn into calcium, reducing the performance of the generator. When this happens, it forms a barrier from the heat source, making your generator overwork. This permits more energy to be used to achieve the same desired temperature. Installing an auto flush system automatically and electronically flushes buildups of any minerals. Your steam generator will be flushed two hours after every cycle, providing you with clean, bacteria-free steam every time you turn it on. With an auto flush system, you can forget worrying about cleaning your generator, giving you more time to relax. 

Incorporate a Water Softener System

Depending on where you are located, you can be dealing with hard water. Hard water has a high amount of mineral content and is formed through chalk, gypsum, or limestone deposits. These are typically formed from calcium and magnesium carbonates, sulphates, and bicarbonates. Hard water can be uncomfortable to the body, and when used in a steam bath or shower, mineral buildup can cause you to spend more on your water bill. The mineral buildup also causes scales to accumulate over time, reducing the lifespan of your generator. When you install a steam shower kit in Canada, it's best to find out whether or not adding a water softener will be beneficial. With auto flush and a water softener system, both work together to provide you with the best steam bath experience. 

Do a Manual Cleaning of Your Steam Generator

Every so often, cleaning your generator is essential to ensure that you are using steam in a clean, healthy environment. Our steam generators are built to last and only need simple maintenance to keep them running smoothly. If you want to extend the lifespan of your steam generator but don't have an auto flush system or water softener system, you should clean it every 2 months to ensure optimal performance. Though regular flushes are better, if you can clean your steam generator every month or two, it will be in good shape.
