Great idea, but I doubt they actually tested this before putting it on the market. First, the suction cups didnt stick. My tub has a textured floor, so of course the suction cups didnt stick. But even where the mat extended into the smooth part, it still didnt stick there either. So it was trying to float, only held down by my butt and my feet. Then, where I was sitting blocked the air flow. There are pads, and I guess the idea is that they would keep you from blocking the air, but I was sitting in the wrong spot, or the pads compressed, or maybe my butt is just too big (and I’m not overweight). So I got bubbles by my feet, where the hose was connected, and no bubbles at my back. It is going back to the store.

Very awesome concept, absolutely terribly executed.
1: As others have stated, it relies on suction cups to adhere to the bottom of the tub, and if your tub is textured (as the vast majority are nowadays) then the cups can’t form a vacuum to actually stay stuck. And if the entire pad doesn’t stick to the tub, then it floats. So it wants to float and wrap itself around you, which is not at all comfortable and is actually quite unsettling. Once the motor is on, it’s like riding a mostly deflated pool floatie that’s stuck to you and exploding in a thousand places.
2: It’s LOUD. Not just slightly annoyingly loud, but WIND TUNNEL loud. Both the motor unit and pad create an incredible amount of noise. Bathrooms are generally small places that echo. The sound from this thing reverberates off the walls making it absolutely impossible to relax. Someone could be getting violently murdered in the next room and you would never know. Honestly, I’ve been in full size professional spa whirlpools that could fit 6 people that were quieter than this tiny thing.
3: The air is COLD! I don’t know what this whole “heat maintenance” thing advertised about. The little jets of air coming out of this thing (right against my skin, remember) were ice cold.
I was so excited to receive this as a Christmas present. I tore it out of the box and wanted to use it right away. It’s going back to the store. Very, very disappointing.
In theory this item would be a good idea but there are two major flaws with it. The suction cups will not stick at all if the floor of the tub is textured. The mat will attempt to float and is very uncomfortable when it does making it unusable. The second major flaw is the bubbles that the mat releases are cold which not only defeats the purpose of a warm bath when it makes the water cool down. I will be returning this item.
