Thermasol steam showers are a popular way to get a quick, hot shower, but they can also be dangerous. If you’re not careful, these showers can cause problems like scalding and third-degree burns. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to turn off a thermosol steam shower so that you can take the safest shower possible. We’ll also provide tips for taking care of your shower unit in the event that it does break down.
Unplug the shower head from the wall
If you’re ever in a bind and need to turn off your Thermasol steam shower, there’s no need to break out the pliers. Just unplug the shower head from the wall! It’s that simple.
Open the water valve to the shower head
If you want to save energy and water when taking a shower, there are a few things you can do. First, open the water valve to the shower head. This way, the water will flow more slowly and the thermosol function won’t be used as much. Second, turn off the water when you’re done showering. This way, you won’t waste any water vapor in the air.
Remove the shower head
If you’re finding that your Thermasol steam shower is breaking down faster than you’d like, you may want to consider removing the shower head. There are a few different ways to do this, and each will require a bit of preparation.
First, turn off the power to the unit by unplugging the cord from the wall. Next, remove the screws that secure the head to the body of the shower with a screwdriver. Finally, remove the head by gently prying it off of its mounting bracket.
Disconnect the hoses from the shower head
1. Disconnect the hoses from the shower head by unscrewing them.
2. Turn the valve to “OFF” and remove it from the stem.
3. Push down on the clip at the bottom of the valve to release it from the stem.
4. Lift up on the top of the valve and detach it from the pipe.
5. Place the valve aside and discard it if necessary.
6. Remove the washer and nut that hold the showerhead to the pipe, then twist until they come loose (the showerhead should now be able to freely rotate).
7. Hold onto one end of the showerhead and use a wrench or pliers to unscrew it from the pipe (it should come off easily).
8. Rinse off all of your old spray head assembly parts under running water, making sure to get any clogs out of any holes in between pieces with a plunger or snake cleaner before installing your new one:
After cleaning everything, screw on your new showerhead by hand-tightening the washer and nut first then tightening them with a wrench:
There you have it! Your old Thermasol steam shower is now disconnected and can be replaced with a new model that uses less water and has more durable materials!
Open the drain at the bottom of the shower
If a shower is taking too long to heat up or if the water is coming out cold, there may be something blocking the drain at the bottom of the shower. To Open The Drain At The Bottom Of The Shower:
1. Turn off the water at the main fixture.
2. If there is a valve near the drain, turn it counter-clockwise to open it and start to pour a pot or bucket of cold water down the drain until it reaches the bottom of the shower. Do not let any water escape from above this opening!
3. Once the stream of cold water has reached the bottom of the shower, close off the valve on top of the drain with a plastic stopper and wait 10 minutes while all of the water drains out.
4. Remove any debris that has accumulated in between the pipes by using a plunger or your hands (be careful not to snake your arm down into anything!).
5. Reattach any hose connections and turn on the water at main fixture.
Turn on a faucet near the drain to fill it with water
If you have a thermosol steam shower, turning it off is as simple as turning the faucet on near the drain.
Hang a bucket below the drain in order to catch any water that leaks out
If water is leaking from your shower, there are a few things you can do to fix the problem. First, check to see if the shower head is clogged. If it isn’t, you may need to remove and clean the drain. Next, try tightening the showerhead screws or replacing the showerhead with a better one if possible. Finally, hang a bucket below the drain in order to catch any water that leaks out.
