1. The shower head is really cheap. It's metallic painted plastic. You have to try hard to find a solid brass unit with a small handle that latches onto the existing rail.
2. The seat is useless. My unit is a slide in unit so it's not attached to the wall. That unit looks like it could be attached to the wall using screws. Be careful... I don't know who thought putting a seat on a glass wall was a good idea...
3. The handles are also metallic painted plastic. They likely used a hole saw to drill a 1" hole in the glass, so finding a replacement is basically impossible.
4. The hoses are likely EU/Asia 1/2" standard, so you'll need an adapter for our 3/8" standard outlets unless you specifically plumb for 1/2" connections. I would wait for delivery of the unit before adding/changing the shutoff.
5. The electrical connection is likely 240v/20A and bare wire. It's a 1.5/1.8kw steamer. It takes about 15 minutes to get to temperature vs 5 minutes with a 9kw system.
Once you get used to the quirks, it's a great unit at 1/4 the price of a real built-in unit.

I see. I am actually planning to replace my existing shower stall in the basement with the steam unit. The existing one is actually a drywall & tile unit built by my basement contractor but we don't know like it at all. That's why we are thinking to replace it with steam unit instead of just rebuilding the shower stall alone without functional difference. Hopefully, it is not too hard to knock down two sides of the tiled drywall at the existing location........
