A Word on Bath

We believe bathing and showering should be fun and relaxing. Yet for how many times have you found it difficult before and after your bath just because your hair catcher and drain stopper are not good enough?

And if you figured this through, you will probably do this: You get a stopper to store water in a tub, and after your bath, in a speed of thunderbolt you put the hair catcher back in to catch hair.

But let’s not celebrate too soon. Because …

Your stopper leaks, floats and grows mildew You stand in a pond of water coz your strainer stops draining Your hair starts sneaking into your drain and your drain gets clogged You pour drain cleaner to the drain and feel guilty on what you just did to mother nature You google “clear clogged drain”, learn it for an hour, and decide to pay the plumber You repeat the above.

One problem’s solution just leads to another problem!

TubKeeper is different. Unlike any other hair catchers or drain stoppers on the market, TubKeeper is engineered to solve all the bathtub drain problems in ONE single solution.

2) TubKeeper is a perfect drain stopper for every bathtub

TubKeeper works extremely well as a drain stopper. When the cap is sealed, there will be zero leakage for several hours.

3) TubKeeper is also a hot water alarm

If the water temperature reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit (~37.8 degrees Celsius), the small cap will turn to pink to aid in safeguarding users against burns.

4) TubKeeper helps keep the bathroom environment scent- and microorganism-free

Mildew will grow fast in a warm and wet environment, just like the bathroom. Plastic hair catcher is one of the best spots for mildew to grow on. Nobody likes mildew. That’s why TubKeeper is made of mildew-resistant materials that can prevent mildew growth.

5) TubKeeper is designed to fit most bathtub drains across the U.S.

By covering a diameter of 1.4 to 1.7 inches, and a depth of 1.10 to 1.42 inches, TubKeeper will fit most of the bathtub drains in the U.S.

Drain clog problem is very common to all bathtubs. A hair catcher may help in solving the clog issue but bring up other problems at the same time. Unlike other hair catchers and stoppers in the market, we believe that a good solution should not be a problem itself.

Like Archimedes’ principle, our story involves a bathtub and a problem that needs solving. Hearing what people complain about bathtub troubles and experiencing them ourselves, we decided to take things into our own hands. We came through various designs, trials and errors in the past year to introduce the best solution to clogged-drain-haters.

As a drain protector, TubKeeper’s ridges and tentacles block hair and small items to prevent drain clogs while allowing high water flows when hair is collected. But our team did not stop there and decided to take few steps further.

We make TubKeeper also a drain stopper and more than that! TubKeeper stores water when its cap is sealed so you don't have to take it out and replace it with a drain stopper. Even more, the tip of TubKeeper is temperature sensitive to warn if the water temperature reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit (~37.8 degrees Celsius), it helps you against burns from hot water, especially for your babies, children and pets.

To get TubKeeper into mass production we need your support. Please help us in bringing this perfect bathtub drain solution to the real world by supporting our Kickstarter campaign.

Share our campaign to let your friends know the whole new solution of bathtub drain problems in order to make their lives easier.

Risks and challenges

For the past months, we are so excited about bringing TubKeeper to you and we are working hard on all stages, from ideas, prototypes, production to logistics. We completed the trial production process to make sure that TubKeeper works as we expected. We have produced 200 pieces of TubKeeper and received great feedback from test users.

As we have passed the trial production, we will have no problem in mass producing it. If there is any problem arise, we will keep all our backers updated as soon as possible.
