    Getting the details right for a steam shower are CRITICAL for long-term life and reliability. Better to have asked before you started! There are lots of methods and materials, follow any one of them carefully and exactly and it should work. But, because it is much more critical than a typical shower, your method must be exact and workmanship (important anywhere, but more so on a steam shower) is critical.

    The TCNA handbook lists and describes many 'approved' methods. Your local building department may have some restrictions you should find out about, too.
