Has anyone used the New Zealand-style shower dome (or anything related)? The idea is to put a plastic dome over a shower, keeping hot water droplets in, thereby 1) keeping the shower hot and 2) reducing steam in the bathroom. The latter also reduces the need to mechanically vent hot, moist air from the house, which is a waste in the winter when you want moisture and heat to stay inside). The idea seems solid, and it seems pretty popular in NZ (where the idea originated, I think) but I'm puzzled why it hasn't spread. I'm very tempted to build one myself out of the kind of thin acrylic that can be shaped by heating it with a hairdryer (used for things like model aircraft canopies) or something similar, but I wanted to see if others had tried this and had any advice first.
Looks reasonable to me. However I would use a flat surface, as the benefits of a dome shape are not obvious to me (apart from looking fancier).
It might get a bit steamy in there though. I'd try it with a cheap top surface (plastic foil, possibly wrapping around some wood) first.
