With this tub you run the water continuously into a reservior area (which I assume moderates temperature changes). As the water flows into the tub it goes over a temperature sensor. If the temperature is too hot the display will turn red and beep. The water flows into the wash area and then out a hole in the side. The tub says it is designed to fit in double basin sinks, but we haven't tried that.
With our previous tub I would run the water continously anyway since I wanted to rinse my son with clean water, but then the tub would fill up to unsafe levels. Also, everytime you adjusted the water flow you'd have to carefully monitor the temperature to make sure it didn't get too hot.
We had the Fisher Price aquarium tub before and our son never fit in it correctly. He loves bathtime and this tub makes it so much less stressful.
I read the other reviews and want to address some of their concerns about the tub.
Complaint #1: Baby does not fit...
Well My son is 7 months old and weighs a healthy 20 lbs, and he fits just fine. He will probably out-grow it in a few months, but will be realy for big boy bathing. Since he is no longer 12 lbs., the dirty water does not drain properly on the opposite side of the drain. But just slight wiggling of the baby or just some paitence and the problem is solved.
Complaint #2: Plugs leak...
I have had this tub for almost six months and plugs work perfectly. If the plugs are leaking, it may be from improper care of the product...letting water sit, not getting all the soap out, leaving a wet rag on the plugs, leaving it in the sun.
Complaint #3: The thermometer breaks...
Again, I have owned it for six months and the thermometer works great! I run the water from the faucet gently and water never touches the device, keeping it in perfect working order. If you are running the water over the thermometer(which is silly because there is a reader in the water flow that reads the tempature away from the electronic thermometer) on full blast, yes I can see why it would break.
In conclusion, as long as you are not using this product irresponibly, It works exactly like it claims. The best tub on the market and 2nd to the boppy, I think one of the best baby products out there.
Highlights: fresh water feature is wonderful for keeping water clean and keeping water at a comfortable temperature, built in thermometer, small storage caddies
1) need insert or other option for small babies (my baby is 8 weeks, average size, and slides all over the place requiring two people to bathe her: one to hold her and one to wash)
2) add second drain / overflow hole. The one existing hole sometimes gets blocked by baby or wash cloth causing water level to rise
3) increase reservoir opening. our tub spout pours half into the baby tub and half into surrounding tub
The improvements could be :
a) It does not show the actual temprature of water in the tub, but the flow in, this kind of brings us down to testing with our hands at times, so you might as well go for a cheaper tub without temp control. The temprature sensors should be moved to the bottom of the water flow side which gives a better picuture of the temparature of water flowing to the baby side of the tub.
The outlet flaps are little flimsy and came off easily exposing a hole, though it was no big deal putting it back.
Overall i would recommend this product since the temprature control turning color based on the temprature adds to the fun for the parents to give baths more than anything else.
