My 'occasional bathtub overflow': Don't ask — I'll tell


Flautist wondered out loud last month about how it was that I had an "occasional bathtub overflow."

I'd written after the admission, "Don't ask," but there's always one in every crowd.

Well, Ms. Curiosity-killed-the-cat in Georgia, here's the back story.

Once upon a time, I got tired of my bathtub's built-in overflow protection drain being so low on the tub wall that I couldn't sink down to my chin without prompting water egress via said drain.

So I bought a Deep Water Bath (above).

Long story short: If you decide to go that route, make very certain you're not the type to ever wander away from your filling tub.

Because if you do, and get absorbed in something else, you're going to be needing your very own can of Up Shot Kilz.

Trust me.

From websites:

    Deep Water Bath — Transform Your Tub Into A Deep, King Size Bath

    Enjoy a deeper, warmer, more luxurious soak with this ingenious tub drain cover.

    Deep Water Bath allows you to fill your bathtub with 60% more water!

    Deep Water Bath suctions on to your tub and encases the overflow drain so you can fill the tub to your heart's desire.

    Go ahead and fill your bathtub with hot, steamy water, add your favorite bath salts, light a candle or two and climb in for a head-to-toe relaxing experience like none other.

I just remembered -- you could always use the Rubbermaid 300 gallon stock tank for those up-to-the-chin soaks and if you wandered away from the home you wouldn't have to worry about ruining any ceilings.

(If Curiosity kills this cat does that mean I get 8 more questions before I ring down the curtain and join the choir invisible?)

Hi Flautist...read your comments on my chocolated poodle near-miss. UPS left the delivery on the back porch and poodle-boy ATE THROUGH THE TWO BOXES.....

I like this bath thingie. J's findings range for simple-cheap to simple-ravishing. He trots the globe so we do not have to. Nice that he shares.

If the designers had any sense they'd make a slot in the top edge so it still functions as an overflow - only higher up.

Aaaaaah well, you're right, I shouldn't've asked.
My hyperactive imagination is so much more exciting.
