To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We were looking for ways to prevent clogging in our bathrooms. We’ve tried 3 other products but they were inferior compared to this unit. The built is very sturdy and you can already tell the quality upon opening the package. Its built heavier compared to the others which is a good thing because it makes sure no small debris or hair can penetrate the actual drain. I bought 2 of these and they are worth the $.
Deff a good thing to have! This thing catches hair in 3 places, plus a 4th before hair can escape down the drain. Hair globs do not stand a chance. Pros: Works pretty well; catches 99% better than other hair catchers. Easy to clean: clean all 3 hair catching spots, plus the area on the tub drain before returning it to notmal. The cup also unscrews for easier cleaning. So far no more slowed/clogged drain that requires a nasty snake or drain declogging devise that flings nasty pipe gunk everywhere. (I'll know in 6 months if this thing eliminates that problem entirelyn thatxs avout the limit on a shower drain before it needs declogging some place in the drain pipes.). Wipes clean everytime. Meterials are pretty solid and good quality.
Cons/Room to Improove Suggestions: Each shower/bath: You have to wait until the tub is dry to clean away the hair gobs and not loose those nasty things down the drain (human error). It doesn't form fit the tub, but the strainer on the inside does a pretty good job catching the escapees in 2 places. Just amazing how much hair gets trapped in this thing (nasty as it is, I love that part).
The cup could use something to prevent toes from stepping in it and flipping the whole thing outta place during showers (happened only 1x and on a rare occasion. My 5yr old would be a great product tester as I'm finding they're great at testing the limits on stuff we would never think about.). Deff buy this product! You'll save yourself a huge headache in plumber bills later.
I love the way this hair catcher looks. And the way it sits nicely in the drain. And how easy it is to clean. The rubber ring underneath helps prevent it from slipping around. It has a nice weight, and will not float off when the water is running like the plastic ones do. The only problem I have with this hair catcher is that it does allow some of the hair through, as the holes to let the water through are a bit larger than most hair catchers. So some hair gets through and eventually you end up with a tub that drains too slowly. But it's better than nothing.
I give it 5 stars for the quality, 5 for installation since there is nothing to it except take your old one out and put this on top. 1 star for no screws or anything to secure it in place. I feel like I'm going to fall in that hole. It drains pretty slow compared to my previous ones but I do feel better that it catches more hair than my previous ones. I just need to find a right screw to secure it in place since the hole on this is big enough. It's still a great product and would still keep it. For the price, I wish there are optional screws to secure them in place.
I saw some of the reviews about “doesnt fit my drain” but i thought it was a width issue. So i bought one, and it doesn’t fit my drain- the “basket” part is TOO TALL. So it doesn’t sit flush on the tub, which leaves a gap for the hair to go through, which completely defeats the purpose of a trap! It’s a shame, because this thing is otherwise REALLY well made. Like super solid.
This is a very well made quality product. However the depth of the base was too long for it to fit snugly into my drain so when buying be aware of that. I intend to do a DIY fix by purchasing a seal for around the diameter, I think this would bridge the gap due to the slightly too big base and allow the edges to sit flush against the surface of the tub. Will update this review then
Good quality stainless steel - easy to remove and clean. So much nicer than the silicone ones that get grubby looking and need to be tossed and replaced. I have noticed I don't seem to get any hair captured so maybe it is going under the drain as I am in an apartment with a cheap plastic tub/shower that may not allow the catcher to provide a solid seal? I would recommend this anyway!
I have a tub that the drain is on the side of the tub rather than under the main faucet. The item is too wide and will not sit flat on the drain because of the slant of the tub, after looking at it closely the hair would just go under it and will not catch it.
This has been very helpful in catching hair when showering. The only flaw is that it does not completely lay flat against the drain so hair does slip down the drain between the sides. If your shower is completely flat or has even drainage from all directions it would be perfect. For a bathtub that is slightly arched it leaves a gap.
Using no strainer other than the bathtub standard one, I had significant issues of hair getting into the drain and the tub frequently filling up a few inches whenever I took a shower. Upon receiving this cover, which has a much larger surface area than the drain hole for filtering, it made an immediate difference. So far, after a week, I’ve not had any drain problems whatsoever. I clean out the center cup each night, figuring it is easier when the hair is dry. Each morning I’ve showered with no problems. This purchase was a worthy buy.
Just used this amazing hair catcher and it has far exceeded my expectations! It also looks great in my shower/tub! Do not hesitate to buy this! It works, it’s stainless, it’s sturdy and it will save you from any clogs! This is hands down the best hair catcher I have ever used! Thank you so much!
