How To Connect the AromaSteam System to Your Steam Shower Generator
If you've selected the AromaSteam System for your Mr.Steam home steam shower generator, you may want to know how to connect the Aroma Request Cable. In this article, we show you how to do so.
What is the AromaSteam System?
AromaSteam from Mr.Steam allows you to combine aromatherapy with your steam experience by automatically infusing scent into your Mr.Steam steam shower.
As this 44 second AromaSteam video demonstrates, aroma will be evenly and consistently infused within the steam for an optimum aromatherapy experience.
What is an Aroma Request Cable?
The Aroma Request Cable is what connects the AromaSteam System to the steam shower generator, providing an even infusion of steamtherapy oils into your steam shower.
To merge scented oil and steam into a sensual mix, the AromaSteam injector pump atomizes the oil and creates the perfect in-steam aromatherapy experience.
Where Should You Place the AromaSteam System?
You'll want to install the AromaSteam System in an easily accessible location so you can monitor and replace the essential oils that the system uses.
Although the system connects to the steam generator, it should not be installed directly below or above the Mr.Steam steam generator where it will be subject to heat. The ambient temperature at and around the AromaSteam system shouldn't exceed 90° F.
The minimum distance between the system and a source of heat - e.g. the steam generator or a heating system - is 1.5 ft. If you can't maintain this minimum distance, consider installing a radiation plate or heat insulation between the heat source and the Aroma system.
How To Connect the AromaSteam System Request Cable
Kris Lee, Mr.Steam Technical Sales Representative explains in the following video how to connect the aroma request cable to your steam generator. Kris details three steps:
1. Make sure the power is off to the steam generator at the main breaker.
2. Route the AromaSteam’s grey request cable into your steam generator and plug it into the two terminals in the back right-hand corner marked "aroma." (See page 6 of the Operation and Installation Instructions.)
3. Next, Test your aroma pump by turning on the power and selecting the AromaSteam option from your control panel.
(Although Kris makes it look easy to connect the aroma cable, Mr.Steam recommends using a professional to do so. )
