FITZGERALD, N.Y. (AP) The latest iteration of the most popular infant bathtub filter is getting a makeover.
The new design from American Glass has an aluminum body and a fiberglass-coated exterior.
The aluminum body is stronger and more durable than the aluminum and plastic body used in previous versions.
The glass is more than just a glass; it’s an alloy that is used to make the glass and other components of the bathtub.
The fiberglass filter is made from polyethylene and coated with a coating of an anodized aluminum oxide.
It absorbs water and is designed to be used as a replacement for traditional tub filters that are not dishwasher safe.
The manufacturer, American Glass, says the new version is more water resistant than its predecessors.
It is also more economical than other options.
