Mr. Steam's MS225

I have a contractor that installed a Mr. Steam's MS225 portable steamunit in a new bathroom. Something about the configuration of the headsjust doesn't seem correct to me. The contractor installed six heads inthe shower, two at thigh level, two at waist/chest level, and the lasttwo at face level. Since steam is rather hot, aren't those heads closeenough to the body (less than sixteen inches) that the steam could burnsomeone in the shower? I need as much information as you can provide.Thanks in advance!

Steam unit should be one ( Maybe two) downspout outlets knee heighth or LOWER. Is it possible you have a body spray system also. Has the shower been used yet?? The outlets that are higher are probably for the body spray system.

How do I remove the cover to replace the light bulbs on a Round Nautilus brand bathroom exhaust fan from the 1980's.


Most exhaust fan covers use a spring steel wire in a V shaped configuration. The bottom of the V is attached to the cover. There is a slot in the fan housing and by pinching the tops of the V togetherand insert them in the slots the spring pressure pulls the cover up tight to the ceiling.Carefully pulling the cover down enough to reach over the cover and pinch thewires together should allow the cover to be removed. Hope this helps.

I have a brand new walk-in tub with whirlpool and air jet. It has air switches for both features. My problem is that the air pump comes on all by itself after sitting for 20-30 minutes of non use. It does...


This is known as the purge cycle, it is very normal. It is to blow out any remaining water from the air jets. If it was to allow water to stand in the pipes, it would start to smell and grow algae, which would then clog the small air holes, nothing to be alarmed about.

Generally I will make the entire front skirt of the tub removable. You need to make sure your access is located so that you can remove the pump if necessary.
Access to the plumbing is advisable also but usually not required by code as it can be serviced from the top side. I am a licensed bath contractor and available to help with any problem you may encounter through premium service or live chat. I can save you many hours of frustration and 100's of dollars on this project.

Whirlpool Tub Access


Hi garyv47,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Your daughter just purchased a new condo with an AquaLux whirlpool tub installed in the bathroom. The front side is removable for access to the mechanicals and is held in place on the lower side by velcro. When you pull the velcro loose the side begins to tilt up, but then stops as it hits the upper edge of the tub. You tried pulling down, but it appear to be held by something. You don't want to pull too hard and break something. Any ideas on how to remove it?

It has been my expirience that the top of these access panals are 'tongue and grove' type construction and are not connected to anything. Usually disconnecting the bottom and pulling the bottom out works. If you are concerned about breakage then it migt be wise to consider the Repair Directory to find a reparman. Or you could talk to the condo maintenance guy. You'll find these guys are a wealth of info.

Feel free contact me again!
