Steam Shower GFCI Requirement

Recommended Posts

Can't find a specific reference anywhere for whether a steam shower is required to be connected to a GFCI circuit. Manufacturer instructions also do not mention GFCI protection. The unit is 230 volt / 30 amp and plumbed with copper pipe. Any help pointing me in the right direction is much appreciated.

I'm not aware of any requirement for GFCI protection at steam units.

Thanks guys. Just seems odd there would not be a requirement considering the all metal electric unit connected to metal plumbing that extends to metal fixtures in the shower area.

The metal piping should be bonded.
