In these days of climate change, water shortages and rising energy costs, the patented BabyDam® Bathtub Divider can help you save on your water & heating bills, paying for itself over and over.
WATER & ENERGY SAVINGS EXAMPLE
Here is an illustration of a toddler bath filled to a depth of 6 inches.
BELOW: WITHOUT THE BABYDAM® BARRIER
(USING 100% OF TUB & 30 GALLONS OF WATER)
BELOW: WITH THE BABYDAM® BARRIER
(USING 50% OF TUB & 15 GALLONS OF WATER)
Water savings for one bath = 15 gallons. Assuming one bath, every other day for a year: 15 gallons x 180 baths per year = 2,700 gallons of water saved per year!
For water heated by electricity, you'll save approximately 448 KWh of electricity per year*. For water heated by gas, you'll save approximately 2.3 million BTUs of energy per year*.
THE BIG PICTURE
There are approximately 4 million babies born in the U.S. every year.
If just 10% of them used a BabyDam® bathtub divider for one year, we could save over 1 billion gallons of water and 179.2 million KWh of electricity (or 920 Billion BTUs of energy using gas).
A BabyDam® bathtub divider just makes sense!
If your BabyDam® is brand new, take a dry towel and rub the surface of both suction cups to help remove any slick residue on them. Then, wet both suction cups with water.
Holding the handles, with the suction cups facing the back of the tub, bend the sides of the BabyDam® toward the faucet & insert squarely into the bathtub at the desired location. It's important that it is not crooked in the tub.
Push down firmly on the handles to flatten the rubber gasket and create an effective seal.
While holding the BabyDam® down with one hand, press down firmly on each suction platform to ensure the pads are stuck to the bottom of the bathtub.
PLEASE NOTE: THE BABYDAM® BATHTUB DIVIDER FITS STANDARD SHAPED BATH TUBS WITH A SMOOTH BOTTOM FINISH. THE BOTTOM SURFACE OF YOUR TUB SHOULD BE SMOOTH TO THE TOUCH, IN ORDER TO ALLOW THE SUCTION CUPS TO ADHERE TO THE SURFACE. IF THE BOTTOM SURFACE IS ROUGH OR BUMPY, THE BABYDAM® WILL NOT STAY IN PLACE. A SLIGHTLY ETCHED OR RIPPLED SURFACE THAT FEELS SMOOTH SHOULD WORK FINE.
To ensure rubber gasket is forming perfect seal run your finger along the gasket while pressing gently toward the back of the tub.
Fill your bathtub to the desired depth, while your baby enjoys their new bathing experience!
AFTER BATHING BABY, ALWAYS EMPTY WATER BEFORE RELEASING SUCTION PADS.
Release suction pads one by one by pulling each pull tab upwards to break the seal. Without letting go of the pull tab, lift that side of the BabyDam® free from the bottom of the bath with your other hand.
Then, repeat this process to free the other suction pad. Ensure both suction pads are free before removing BabyDam® from your bath. Never use abrasives to clean your BabyDam®
