    You can't use a shower with steam still in it? seems a bit weird of you, a soon as you turn it on steam will be back anyway.

    The logic of the concept is by trapping the moisture in the shower which is lined with waterproof surfaces and has a drain in it you prevent it from mixing into the air in your house thereby reducing how much moisture is in your house in general. You could also just shut the bathroom door and open a window I suppose. Has the added benefit of not fogging up the mirror too. Mould shouldn't really be an issue inside a shower, unless you never clean it and even if it is it should be much easier to clean up than on say the ceiling.

    Fog Free Mirror....Cleaning ought to be done often if having enclosed showers. I mean whatever's been deposited (i.e. transferred from one's body) on wall might get deposited back on someone else...

    Gosh. That was TMI.

    I was looking at getting one when my bathroom was reno'd, but was advised it was better to have a decent extractor fan above the shower instead. Plumber reckoned he saw more leaks with shower domes as the trapped hot moist air caused a higher air pressure which encouraged water to travel behind joins etc which wouldn't have occurred otherwise.

    Been in a Shower with a Showerdome couple of times
    First thing you notice is how much warmer it is as the hot/warm air rising has nowhere to go and condenses in the Dome and stopping the cooler air rushing in at the bottom if you don't have a shower door but does work well even with a shower curtain

    You don't hear of anyone pulling one out because they don't like it

    maybe.
    be honest.
    Our first house had no permits for a heap of things, including fireplace.

    The buyer bought it anyway.
