The shower from hell

Tom mentioned the Aquapeutics Luxury Steam Shower Model: U6810. Frankly, it rather scares me, but it does look like a cross between the art direction of the second set of Star Wars with vague H.R. Giger undertones.

I think the server got Flutterby'd or something.

Oh, and just noticed (and corrected) "Star Wards" typo. Not sure whether that was Montgomery or Robin.

Does it come with a fusion reactor to heat the water?

Heaters and pumps show a peak of 32 amps, 7100 watts. Figuring a near future cost of $0.25 per kWh, maybe even higher. this will cost: $1.75 per hour. Plus the initial heating of the water. Taking 2 x 10 minute showers a day at a minimum, that's approx $20 per month for Juice. But if I'm spending $5k on a shower, I'll probably be soaking more, and being soaked for more.
