Diesel steamers only need single phase power supply, perfect for vans that are used for cleaning or mobile car valeting. As you just need a generator to power the steamer. Electric steamers will need a three phase power supply.

A single-phase supply is smaller than a three-phase supply. A typical house has a single-phase supply whilst a larger house, flats or commercial building has a three-phase supply.

The way to tell what supply a property has is by looking at the fuse on the service head. Single-phase has one 100amp fuse while a three phase supply has three 100amp fuses.
