The SteamSuite allows club members to take a steam shower and de-wrinkle their clothing prior to returning to work. The average steam shower uses one gallon of water, as opposed to the nearly 20 for regular showers. This saves club owners money on their water bills each month. The generator for the device can be put anywhere within 50 pipe feet of the showers, making for easy installment. The generator can produce steam for up to four showers at once. The SteamSuite also provides wrinkle-free technology, allowing clothes to be de-wrinkled before club members head back to the workplace. This feature uses only one quart of water for just a few seconds of steam.
