Archimedes approves! Less water/fancy ingredient displacement down my drain!
Baths have changed for me forever now! I can actually FILL THE TUB and not hear that dreaded sound of half my water (and my expensive magnesium flakes, essential oils, organic bubble baths and other fancy therapeutic ingredients) tragically vanishing down the drain. If you're a larger person trying to fit in a smaller tub, especially, you know... THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Now I can take more baths, enjoy more relaxing warm coziness... all because of this little bit of silicone! Be careful if you have a refinished tub, as I do... remove those suctions SUPER gently and don't let them stick on too hard. Technically you're not supposed to use suctions with a refinished tub.

I almost didn't purchase this because of the few bad reviews. I wasn't sure if would stick to the tub, but I went with the majority who said it works, and I'm so glad I did. My husband loves baths and I purchased this mainly for him because he's a big person and every little bit of extra water depth he can get is wonderful. You can really get an extra two to three inches as one reviewer said. I don't understand what the others giving bad reviews were talking about. The suction cups fit easily on the tub and you don't have to use much pressure at all. They stick as soon as you push a little and you can even hear a little "click" sound as you push each one, telling you it's sealed. Our cover never "floats off" or comes off the tub until we take it off, and when we do, it is easily removed. As far as the hole in the cover that another reviewer mentioned, you have to put the cover on with the hole on top so the water won't drain out!! All in all, a great purchase!

Works exactly as advertised! Was able to fill up my bathtub much higher and did not have any problems. No leaking and the suction cups work great once you run them under some warm water. Best 5$ I've ever spent.

Wow, what a wonderful difference this makes
I used this for the first time yesterday, it could not be more perfect, it got every bit of potential my tub is capable of, which i now can see is excellent. i have been taking baths with the normal drain overflow thing and i have enjoyed the baths a lot. i never took baths, only showers, until recently, because i have atopic dermatitis and a doctor said to soak in Dead Sea Salt baths, so, i tried it out, kind of reluctant, "I'm not a bath person, takes too long" but it was great. i couldn't get the upper part of my body under the water comfortably, leaving a part that has the rash on it above the water. In order to soak those places, i would lay on one side and then the other, not the most comfortable, but not bad, i was making the best of it. Then i ordered one of these. I read all or most of the reviews and the customer questions. I saw that some people had some problems getting it to stay up but other people gave pointers on how they get it to stay. When i started that bath, putting the water in the tub, i followed instructions that some people had given, wondering if it was going to work, and how much difference it could actually make, i wasn't expecting much because the water was already going pretty near the top before. It was super easy to put on, mainly a matter of wetting the suction cups and pressing each one into the side of the tub around the metal drain overflow thing, that was easy, i did them one at a time. It fit easily over my original 1956 drain overflow thing, and the overflow hole was at the top. i was in the water and it was high enough to cover my upper body. Yes! I enjoyed that bath so much, it was so easy and so comfortable. This is one of the coolest make-life-easier gadgets i've ever found. Looking forward to next bath. What a feeling of luxury.

Disappointed- With proper use and care
Iâ€™m incredibly disappointed. I reviewed right away after first bath and I regret the original mostly positive review. I complained then that sticking power wasnâ€™t great, I could just barely bump into it and it would fall off but it did not leak water without being touched. (Just want to say I understand suction cups are finicky, I used it with water and completely dry, with water worked better. Nothing but water touched it until after it was placed) It worked ok for about a month and then pretty much melted. I take lukewarm baths, I use a roughly a 1/2 tablespoon of baby oil and 1 1/2 cups of Epsom salt. I took it out between showers and used hand soap to clean it. The plastic/ rubber should have been fine. Poorly made product or mine was incredibly defective. Iâ€™m planning on trying a different brand because I love having more depth to the bath water.

Get the luxurious bath without the deep soaker tub!
I was worried about the dimensions, since it's hard to find reviews that state how wide the actual plastic cover is for the overflow drain. The cover itself is 4 inches in diameter, and can easily cover any standard overflow. The entire product is about 6 inches in diameter (cover + suction cups). I found it most successful by running the suction cups under water before sticking it over the drain and onto my tub. I pushed down on each individual suction cup to make sure they adhered securely.
Before I started filling my tub, I actually dumped maybe half a cup of water inside the top hole of the cover to see if water would leak out from the bottom. I was pretty much testing to see if the seal would completely block the passing of water when I filled the tub up. I didn't see any dripping and I was actually able to fill up my tub and take a real bath. This cover easily added 3 or 4 inches of more water in my tub, and made it feel like I was in a deep soaker!
For the other reviewers that struggled with this product, I'm wondering if they ran the suctions under water and then if they pushed down on each individual suction cup, or if they just tried to push on the main cover to see if it would stick. If you just repeat what I did, you'll be enjoying a luxurious bath without having to remodel the bathroom!

Only reason it's not a 5 star review is because ...
Only reason it's not a 5 star review is because the first one I got was ripped so I know that this is not going to hold up too long, but it's recyclable according to the packaging so maybe that's why? Anyway I'll update my review to let you know how long it lasts for me - so give me a "helpful" vote and check back in with me later. :)

Hard to figure out but great after that
After struggling to figure out how to use this thing, it's pretty great. A little of the water still slips through but it stops at least 90%. Make sure to dry the area you're trying to stick it onto, moisten the suction cups then try to apply it. It may take a couple of tries.
*ive got a green bath bomb... I'm not that gross lol*
