Steam generator in shower...

Hello,
On Reddit I saw a guy that put in a steam generator in his shower.
I thought it to be ideal for Navy showers. At least you’d have some warmth being maintained from the steam...

Ordered one and am now wondering if anyone else has experience with performance, placement etc etc.

Any input appreciated

Looks like 3kW (250 Watt hours per 5 minutes of usage)


Can't tell how much water it consumes. They list "Water Supply: 0.1-0.4Mpa" which appears to be a unit of pressure "MegaPascals" equal to 15-60 PSI. Not sure what to make of that.

Says 3kW in the description but maybe there are lower output models, or maybe there are lower power settings (which would probably make sense for a bus since the size of a bus bathroom is much smaller than a normal steam room).

Any updates on this?

Curious if there are any updates on power and water consumption on this? Interested in possibly putting something like this in a bus conversion.
