Product Description

The Oster Professional RapidBath pet bathing system uses the same patented InjectAir technology used by leading professional groomers. The devise uses water pressure to automatically draw and disperse the shampoo saving you the hassle of messy, soapy bottles and since the shampoo and water is driven all the way down to the skin, you can avoid the unpleasant and back breaking scrubbing associated with traditional bathing. This item does not come with any adapters nor hose and those are sold separately at hardware stores. This listing is only for the machine and the bonus shampoo.

Customer Reviews

The mixture of shampoo and water makes it easier to soap him up.

This has really made my life easier and my two large dogs enjoy bathing much more now.

It comes with a diverter that you install between your shower head and shower arm.

I cannot believe I let the kids talk me into buying this. All it is really is a plastic aerator ("hydro surge" my aunt fanny) with on/off buttons. There is no reason for this item to cost what it does! Then, they hit you up for the shampoo cartridges.

On the upside, having the shampoo mix with the water, etc. is a nice idea. It works better than the wet, lather, rinse method. However, there are other products available which performs the same function as this one, for half the price.

Buy it if they drop the price to below forty, but be aware that you'll still have to pay 3USD per shampoo cartridge. They claim you can wash several dogs with one cartridge - that's true only if you have very small dogs. One cartridge is good for 1.5 labradors.

Verified Purchase
For washing a dog, this has been the best unit I've found. It still isn't perfect, but it is the best. I know professional groomers have better units, but I'm not going to spend $500 or more dollars.

I've a got a standard poodle that can be hard to wash when he has a longer coat. After retrieving in the mud or running blinds in the water, his coat is filthy. The old system was wet him down, try to soap him up, and spray with more water because the shampoo was to thick. I found the water diluted the shampoo, and I reapplied more shampoo to try to penetrate the thick hair. The cycle was wet, apply shampoo, wet, apply more, and maybe do it again. (Remember, he is filthy. It's a good thing retriever training is fun.)

This unit dispenses a small amount of shampoo while washing. I don't excessively dilute the shampoo I've applied, and don't need to reapply shampoo.

The amount of shampoo it is designed to apply internally isn't enough needed to was my dog effectively no matter how short his coat.

Another nice feature is the type of fitting it uses. It is for hose bibs. You can use it in the backyard, or use the supplied attachment for the shower. When the weather is warmer, I use the hose bib fitting at the training grounds and connect it to a hose to wash my dog in the field.

The manufacturers won't like to hear this, but I'm still using the original shampoo cartridge that came with the unit 1 year ago. I don't want to use their shampoo. When the cartridge was empty, I use a cooking syringe designed to inject meats. The diameter of the blunt needle supplied is narrow enough to slide inside the cartridge opening, and I fill it with a shampoo I like. The syringe is the type one would buy to inject meat with vegetable oils when cooking.

At some point I'll need to buy another shampoo cartridge, but this one is still going strong.

My Irish Setter loves being outside. She loves running thru the mud, brush, woods - a real field dog. Virginia's clay soil dries in her feathers like cement - not fun for either of us at bath time. I am NOT a gadget person - but this RapidBath has made a big difference in our quality of life. It makes bathing easy, fast, and efficient. Willow leans into the water spray instead of squirming to get loose - she doesn't quite 'smile' like the Golden in the video, but she is clearly enjoying the water massage. The amount of dirt and dust coming into the house has been reduced significantly. We love having soft, silky Willow inside with us. Last year, she dropped a lot of fur and started chewing herself. The vet said it was from allergies. This year, she has a great, thick coat and I think it's because we've been using the RapidBath.

It used to take me 30 minutes to wash each of my German Shepards. After a few uses, I can now get both of them completely clean in under 5! Finally a product that works as good as it claims.

I have an 85lb chocolate lab (Cypress) and a 45lb adopted mutt (Rainy) with a shepherd coat that SHEDS ALOT! I was tired of getting covered from finger tip to elbow in fur everytime I bathed Rainy no matter how much brushing I did before hand. Cypress took forever to get wet enough to even shampoo because he has the lab "otter" coat. The airator in this nozzle is extremely effective on both types of coats and you can just go straight to shampooing without the peliminary soaking, and you barely have to even touch the dog, the nozzle does most of the work and gets soap right down to the skin. The nozzle also helps your thouroghly rinse off all the soap pretty quickly. This thing even got Rainy's dreaded under coat to "float" to the surface.

This item does have room for improvment though:
1. Price for cheaply made plastic. I paid $60 at petsmart (yeah, buy on amazon) and after a few weeks the clip that holds the shampoo cartrige just popped off in 2 pieces so I have this velcroe strap to wrap around the handle to keep it shut. Without that all important cheap plastic clips, the cartriges won't dispense shampoo properly, so this is a pretty important piece to just break with normal use.
2. The shampoo cartriges are expensive when you have big dogs. Being stingy with shampoo I can bathe both dogs maybe twice per cartrige. Maybe.... Also the ultraclean formula dried my dog's skin out so if your pooch isn't extremely greasy all the time I'd opt for the hypoallergenic or more mild selections.
3. I do think the nozzle could work better with water pressure, sometimes it doesn't spray as hard as I'd like it to and the water pressure is pretty good in my home.

It's a good product but has room for improvement. Even knowing what I do now I would still purchase and use the product just for the covinience factor and time saving. Especially when the "kids" are covered in mud :)
