Magiplug

  • What does it do?:

    It lets water drain away from a flooding bath.

  • What’s the problem?:

    Helps when people forget to turn off taps. This could be because someone cannot hear the tap anymore or becomes distracted.

  • What our testers liked:

    Set up is easy, just replace existing plug with magiplug and leave in at all times. When the water in the bath reaches a certain level, the plug automatically release and the water drains away, preventing floods.

  • What our testers disliked:

    Does not drain quickly so can leave a scum on the bath. If the tap is left on full, the plug can dislodge and float to the side bit will still drain effectively.

  • What is interesting:
  • This definitely helps, we went out and left the tap on for almost an hour, and yet on our return the magiiplug prevented a flood.
  • What our testers said:

    "A homesaver for those who forget to turn off taps!"

  • Manufacturer:

    Magiplug

  • Approximate cost: £10
