Highly recommend this product. This product went on lightning sale so I decided to choose it over another metal model that is closer to the tubshroom in that the top is a full circle while this product has a fan-like shape. Although I never tried the other model, I have no regrets because the design on top makes it easy to grip it and pull it out of the drain to clean. Also, the curved top means that it doesn't hurt if you step on it. The design also looks decorative so I like it.
It comes in a small box with two black rubber attachments. It's super easy to pop the rubber attachments onto the bottom of the drain cover and the larger one makes the drain cover fit snugly in my tub drain. It's very secure too. It may feel like the rubber part is sliding up the drain cover as you slide it into your drain, but it has a tight fit that ensures that all water is flowing through the center and not the sides.
Cleaning is very easy. The hair collects on the outside and you can just pull or slide it off. Soap scum collects on the inside cylinder and that's easy to wash off. You can just wipe it off with a finger or blast some water down the center. This is also definitely metal which, from what I've read, is much better than the plastic versions because it won't discolor or get moldy.
I don't notice a slower drain when I'm showering, it flows right down, but if you're draining an entire bathtub of water, it is slower. It's not extremely slow, but it is slower.
As the title of my review says, if you don't know what color to get, choose black. I chose black and it's very close to the generic drain metal color so it looks like it's a part of my tub and not a foreign object. I would consider black to be a safe choice if you don't know what to get.
In my opinion, this drain cover is a must-have. I was using a cheap rubbery cover that would go over my tub and sometimes catch hair but I'd have to clean the drain with a snake to get what would go down. The rubber ones also discolor if your water is hard. With this, it catches everything and it's easy to remove and replace so I can clean it after every shower without it being a long process.
