Change the drain!
March 25, 2018
I bought this from another bath and plumbing place but wanted to try and help future buyers.
1. It’s a pain in the butt to assemble. The instructions are garbage. You will need at least 3 people to safely assemble the glass panels. Preferably with previous construction experience. There are a couple bad quality YouTube videos out there that helped a bit.
2. Change the drain! I cannot stress this enough! The provided drain will cause your bathroom to flood. It cannot handle the volume of water from the rain shower head. I’ve posted pictures but the drain it comes with has an opening of maybe 1 1/4”. I changed the whole drain system to 2” ABS using an Oatley offset drain assembly. Added an extra cleanout tee to attach the silicone tubing for the steam generator.
I was fortunate enough to have access to my house to do the plumbing properly once it was assembled and put into place.
Once it’s together it’s beautiful!

I really wanted to like this shower. I know someone who has the 59″ x 32″ x 97.4″ shower installed, and 5 years later it’s still working great. So I figured this should be a no-brainer.
Please note when they say that this shower is for right-side configuration, they mean it. I have a 47″ nook in my bathroom and I figured it would be fine.
The shower is designed so you need to have access to the right side during installation, otherwise, you cannot push the pieces together. We were unable to mount some of the framing screws due to access and had to find other solutions to keep the frame sturdy.
Also while theBlack Steam Shower & Sauna DZ959 is beautiful, they could use some work on QA. The pieces were too tight to fit the frame, and burrs in the cutout holes needed to be filed down to fit.
We ended up having to use a crowbar to widen the metal frame in order to slide all the shower walls in. (We used the same installer who installed that other shower that’s lasted 5 years, and he said the other shower was a breeze to put in, in comparison)
When you fit the drain in, make VERY SURE that it is flowing smoothly. We poured 5 gallons of water in as a test before mounting and that wasn’t enough. Once the shower was installed we realized the drain didn’t flow quickly. We ended up having to cut a hole in our drywall to access the drain to fix the problem.
Also be sure to check all the seals on the back wall panel before you mount. It might not hurt to add extra sealing on all the parts as we discovered that every part of the back shower leaks. To be extra sure, we ran silicone caulking across all the edges again as well.
For the Black Steam Shower & Sauna DZ959 shower, you will need 220v electricity. For that, in our case, we had to run a 10-3 wire to the circuit box and buy a new 30amp GFCI breaker. That part was relatively straightforward — except finding the breaker. I had to go to 4 different electrical supply stores to get it.
Now that the shower is installed it looks great, but it sure was a stressful install with lots of hiccups. Let’s hope it lasts as long as the other shower!
Note: the instructions are very poorly translated. I recommend finding a YouTube installation to watch the installation. Also, I got this shower on Wayfair because it’s cheaper via their Premier program.
I’ve had the shower for a few weeks now and have had a chance to use it more. Overall the shower is holding up well, but the drain is a big problem. We have to constantly monitor the drain or it backs up. I would definitely recommend making sure the drain is functioning properly before you seal the shower in.
