Showerdome® vs Steam Stopper & Turtle Shell

When it comes to choosing where to spend your hard earned money in the bathroom – you’ll be faced with plenty of options. Let’s take a look at these, and make sure you’re comparing apples with apples.

Eliminating steam in your bathroom is consistently at the top of the hit-list when it comes to bathroom renovations or improvements.  You basically have 2 options.

  1. Attempt to extract the steam created by using an extractor fan, or opening a window.
    I encourage you to read my previous blog post before considering this option.
  2. Stop the creation of steam by installing a shower top.

And this is the money shot.  THIS is the option you want to explore.

When it comes to stopping steam from forming in your bathroom – Showerdome® shower tops are the market leader. We have the goods, and we’re proud of it.

It’s only been in recent years that Showerdome® has had any direct competition in the market.

Steam Stopper by Henry Brooks has been around for some time, and more recently a product launched at one of the major hardware retailers going by the name of a ‘Turtle Shell’.

‘Steam Stopper’ and ‘Turtle Shell’ are our competitors, and we’re OK with that.  They say competition is healthy – and we couldn’t agree more. It’s easy to be confident when you genuinely know you have a superior product.

Lets explore the comparison between the shower tops on the market:-

Showerdome® – Crystal Clear Steam Stopper / Turtle Shell – Opaque & geodesic with stipple finish
Showerdome® – Lifetime Guarantee. Steam Stopper / Turtle Shell – 5 year guarantee.
Showerdome® – Made from Plexiglass Steam Stopper / Turtle Shell – Made from acrylic


Both a Showerdome® shower top or a Steam Stopper will cost you $299, while a Turtle Shell will currently set you back $199.

It’s a matter of ‘you get what you pay for’.

I know my money is much better spent on quality items, that will stand the test of time. Call me shallow, but I care what things look like.  I don’t want to fit something into my newly renovated bathroom that looks like it was repurposed using the glass from my Nan’s back door of yesteryear.

I want a crystal clear, sleek, almost impossible to see shower top on my shower.

Showerdome® is the clear winner.
