    Get one with auto drain. It cuts down on mineral buildup. Allow for auto drain, relief valve, water supply and steam line (from generator to shower outlet). Insulate steam line. Use online software to properly size your generator. Notify the sparky of the amperage demand. Sometimes adequate power is not available.

        I have ran into 2 now in the past year where the current failed model is no longer made and the next size down is too small, and the next size up I don't have large enough wire to run.

        So if rewiring is out of the question after everything is finished maybe consider larger wire to power it.
